Those wheels are awesome and the car looks great. There is a lifetime of polishing it though to keep it looking like that! Thumb

Thanks for the comments!

Unfortunately I’m one of those people that loves a garage queen.

It goes into Midlands car care next week (Detailer) for the following as I want the car looking prestige.

Paint:

Front Bumper
Side Skirts
Rear Air Vents
winder wiper shuttle painted colour coded (the plastic looks worn)
Wing Mirrors

Detailing:
Final stage corrective detail (I want that mirror finish)
PPF the front of the car to include roof and splash guards
Ceramic coating to include wheels

I was going to change the colour of the wheels but they have grown on me.

From there straight to Severn Valley (Telford Tuning ) for a health check, I was reading the write up last night in the total 911 magazine (issue 152) I think the car has been tuned but I’m trying to get hold of James to confirm (previous owner- he built a cracking car)

I will put more pics up when it’s being detailed.


Thumb

A full health check done today with the car being put on the dyno. 546bhp and 562Ibs of torque. Cylinder 2 and 3 had a slight misfire so I’ve agreed to pay half replacing all the coil packs and replacing the spark plugs. Overall very strong power and in great condition

Hi All

would anybody know the part numbers for the front fog lamps and daytime driving lights as i would like to give the bumper a fresh look after the paintwork being done.
Is there a website that i could get these ordered for quick delivery?

Thanks
Thumb

I can't help with part numbers but be prepared for a massive shock when you see the prices of those fitments !!!
