This is Rufus, (THE DUKE)

2005 997.1 45,000 on the clock.
3.6, had a borescope and he comes with 12 months warranty too!

Drives like a dream!

Tech 9 did the checks in Liverpool and were a great source of knowledge and assurance.
I got the images of the bores for future reference too.

I must thank Phil997 for some great advice whilst purchasing him.

Looking forward to fettling and enjoying!


Stoddy.

Photo doesn’t really show the gold wheels off.
I’ll get one of the interior (Camel?)

Guilty,
They are slightly richer in goodness to the eye.
I was thinking some sort of matching bonnet and roof stripes?
What say?

Not a fan of stripes and decals personally but if there's one colour that they do work with it's red in my opinion.

Hello,

Can anyone recommend a grill kit for the front bumper please?
The central piece, the bit with the scoop, is very loose anyway, so thinking of grilling it out.
Ideally with out removing the front bumper and removable, so I can get to the rads to inspect and clean.


Cheers!




Stoddy.

What a lovely example.

Guards is just "too" good on a 997.
