Hello all,

I am about two weeks in to my first 911 (996) 1999 C4 - loving it!!

Finally bit the bullet after a several years thinking and realised if I didn’t get one soon it would never happen - prices rising and “life’s too short” etc.

Changed gear and differential oils and replaced front drive shaft gaiters then it was down to Nine Excellance for Major Service, spark plugs and full geometry.

Wheels, sports suspension, sports seats, silver console and dials as factory options. Had a replacement Porsche engine fitted in 2015 but about 65k miles since then so guess not really an asset anymore?

Will need an exhaust soon, now I’ve sold my previous car (Range Rover) may have some ££ to do this earlier.

Only real plans are a deep clean of the interior and try to improve a few bucks and scuffs on parts of the trim, extend the silver trim option and replace the dials as think I prefer them black.

Lots of good information on here, thanks for adding me to the forum.

Steve.

Ah, so your the guy that bought it.... Congratulations.

I had arrange to view this car a few Saturdays back, spoke to the guy (Ben? ) selling it during the week, agreed to view on the weekend, if it was still available, spoke to him Friday night to firm up plans only to be told it had sold, I believe you viewed it Friday night and left a deposit?

I had lined up two, near identical cars to view on the Saturday, I ended up buying the other car, it turned out to be a great car, as, I'm sure is the car you bought.

Hope your enjoying yours, s much as I am mine,

Indeed was is me, sorry to pip you to it but pleased you also picked one up - it was starting to become a constant stream of phone calls and "no sorry it's sold" responses.

Ben lives close to me so was able to nip across on Friday.

Take care
