Are you sure that the £150 expansion tank is the correct one, year 2001 onwards, the more expensive one £229.99 up to year 2000 on ECP is the correct one I think Question They are different tanks Grin

You need a Porsche themed flat cap in your videos, you know it`s da rulez Grin


Ha! But is there such a thing as a Porsche themed flat cap? Should there be? Smile

I’ve just checked on eurocarparts website and I think he’s given me the cheaper one of the 2 options but it appears to be the correct one. Fingers crossed for when I hand it into the garage :|

Ok, just be aware that a few people have had issues with non-OEM expansion tanks, the filler cap doesn`t seal properly, pressure is lost and they can leak/ cause overheating issues Sad

( test the fit of the filler cap on the threads before you fit the tank, make sure you are happy with it ) Thumb

I`m sure there is a nice porsche themed flat cap available, failing that a motorsport one at least Grin

My preference is a classic Goodwood racing green courdroy baseball cap Very Happy

Thanks Kris, will give that a go and hope it’s all good.

Haha, not sure about a baseball cap...won’t look as cool when I’m fighting crime in the village Smile

149k now, I’m trying to resist any major work to keep the cost down (not that it needs major work but it’s easy to get carried away). I know Ray and he is really good and been a great help with advice.

I guess you’re local to his place and the main Porsche dealership in that case?

Big news! We have a new MOT with only 1x2 advisories!! (Slight corrosion in front metal brake pipes - to be monitored). Will get that sorted.

I am soooo happy (and relieved!)

Still looking sorry for itself though...
