Hi All

I’m new to the forum and I’ve just put down a deposit on my dream car being a 997 turbo. (08 reg)
The car has got 4 previous owners and covered 80000 miles benefiting from full service history.
Whilst I was looking at the service history and receipts I’ve noticed it’s had new ohlins suspension and exhaust done by rpmtechnik and they are a sponsor on this forum.

I appreciate it’s a long shot but I wondered if anyone had any information on this car and could provide any background.

Reg SL08 NFK

Thanks thumbsup

Welcome to 911uk and to the turbo club.

Looking forward to hearing how she compares to whatever you've had before and to seeing pics. Thumb

Might also be worth a phone call to rpmtechnik, certainly nothing to lose.
Good luck.

Google came up with an image of the car with decals on the side of it and a vynal number plate. Maybe from a road trip.

I doubt you’ll get RPM to share any details of the car with you. I tried that with Porsche Guildford when I bought mine and they wouldn’t share anything due to privacy reasons which I respected.

This car was Turbojim's car he was a member on here for a long time and lives in Dorset. The car has been very very well looked after and wanted for nothing in its time with Jim he is an enthusiast and loved his car. It has featured numerous times in total 911 mag ,and Jim used to write a column for Total 911. It has had a few subtle mods done but the big winner for me was that it was fitted with a Kline Inconel exhaust cost £6000 and made it sound like a proper 911. you wont be disappointed with it and glad to hear its gone to another enthusiast. Thumb Thumb Thumb heres a pic of it taken a few years ago Grin Thumb

I second that, it's a great car and you won't be disappointed. Jim's a decent bloke and looked after that car. Hope to see is again at a future meet.

Enjoy!

He's only just sold it in the last few weeks , it went I think to a Dealer. He did tell the local guys he was selling it as he wanted to scratch another itch. Thumb

Ah Wink that’s my son Joe ... Total 911 meet at OPC , when he charged Jim and Lee Sibley £5 to clean their alloys Floor

Jim’s car is a lovely example , no hesitation in recommending that. Owned by true enthusiast.

I just want to say thank you to all of you, what a cracking bunch for taking the time and effort to reply to me.
I’ve been reassured by the comments and I’m getting very excited as I collect it on Saturday morning..

Just sold my f10 M5 but been wanting one of these for a long time.

Certainly will

I’ve already booked the car in for a full corrective detail to include ceramic coating then straight into Severn valley motorsport for a full health check and potential 1st stage tune. The car has 84k miles so I just want to check the car on the rolling road making sure everything is spot on. I have been advised that the mileage wouldn’t be an issue as the engines are bullet proof.


Will post pics once it’s all done to include power graph

I recognise the number plate, think it was owned by a friend around 7 years ago. Confused

Black interior, sports seats, manual gearbox? Question

Some pics of the new car thumbsup

The car needs a new window switch but I test drove the car today and it was epic..

As you are aware turbojim changed the suspension so I’m assuming the suspension button will not work due to the standard suspension being changed.
On the test drive I pressed the sports button and the boost held at 1.2bar but I didn’t have any green logo on the dash advising of the over boost. I might be getting confused.
