Cheers for the suggestions. Am going to see a red Sport tomorrow. It has silver wheels, but if I get it, will get Chris W to paint them red:

Yep great to drive, comfortable, quick and cheap to keep on the road and in good order.

Not much rust on these cars if any as they are double galvanised, they are getting on so seals and belts need replacing on the engine to make them oil tight again. That costs around £450 but you know it's done and wont need for anything else for a long time again. CS cars always seem to have bad teeth on the gears on the cam shafts. They are expensive but some places offer a teeth/gear set replacement now. Maybe it's because CS cars have been revved more I don't know but it is much more common. I had mine checked out and the chain and plastic followers(£13) replaced as they had worn and stretched. The gears and camshafts were perfect in mine. It's worth doing when you are having the belts and pulleys replaced.

Brakes/calipers can get plate lift and it will cost you about £100 a corner to sort including parts and labour. Discs are about £50 each and pads around £30.

Tax kinda cheap and I found Lancaster insurance services very good for my premium for the year was only £280 no mileage restriction.

Once you get one sorted and the important stuff done for peace of mind the following years will be very cheap to run. Just factor in spending upto a grand when you buy it.

Just spoke to Andy and Ninex and he has a couple available. Going over on Monday or Tuesday lunchtime to take a look. Neither are AC cars and he told me few of them are. These guys are big on racing 968s, themselves and customer cars.

Hope you feel better soon mate. Has the sympathy stopped yet? AnnMarie's lasts about three days, then she's had enough.

How did you find those at Ninex? There doesn't seem to be a for sale section on the site.

Update Thumb :

Paid a deposit on a red 968 Sport this morning and have a Peter Morgan inspection booked for next week. Drove really well (really neutral handling and so much more stable than a 911) and is in great condition, bar a few marks here and there and a fairly scabby set of Cup IIs. Certainly no obvious rust and the interior is pretty much mint.

93k miles, only two owners (first female, second an older dude) and full OPC service history with belts and seals done 10k ago and no oil leaks.

No air con, but who cares, it has a lift out roof and electric windows that go up and down. Still thinking I'll go for red wheels though, like a Club Sport.

Red Wheeeeeeeeels!!!!! food food

Awesome work. Having been privy to the dealings here I can hopefully add some sense and taste to the wheel colouring.

Certainly the coloured wheel is inkeeping in the ethos of the 968 CS.......although red lends itself to perhaps green or yellow wheels, or better still green centres with a red or yellow stripe or yellow centres with a red stripe or a mix of these or all of these. This clearly makes sense.

Will await other thoughts. Please also do not rule out the digital display, a futuristic dashboard could look great with the coloured wheels.

You are nearly the man with everything.....when the wheels are done you will be complete.

Thanks Peter, am feeling pretty excited about it. Black is cool too, but thinking that I want red as it's CS orientated and I've never owned a red car before, so thought I could go balls and all and have a totally red car.

Some good points raised there Ben, particularly in terms of the wheel colour options. I called in at Byfleet today and they have a black 968 that they use for track days.

It's black with Signal Green wheels and mirrors. I like the idea of yellow wheels as my Grandad was a postman and his van was red and yellow.

Perhaps I could do a Royal Mail themed 968, with the Royal Mail logo on the doors? I reckon that would be a nice homage to him and his hard work in the postal service. (Althought he's dead now so he won't get to appreciate it. Confused )

The digi dash is a nice idea (The Hoff Knightrider is my all time favorite TV show), but I was thinking about putting a 993 dash in so I'd feel a bit more at home? Is it possible to do this?

All I'm missing now is a downstairs mix-up. Thumb

The Royal Mail homage is simply the work of genius. How many Royal Mail liveried 968s are out there?
