Thanks Thumb Drivewise perhaps more engaging than my 993 and more engine noise ( thumbsup ) and tyre roar ( what ). Overall very comfortable, precise in steering but a little harsh on the suspension (my fault with the set up).

Seemed to go around Spa OK earlier this year and the trip home was around 8hrs driving with just a few 30 min breaks with the only complaint of pain in the right knee due to the offset pedals Embarassed

Over winter I may look to KW v3 or PSS10, lower it, spacer front/rear wheels and finally fit a decat pipe, to complement the short 'G', I'm totally happy with. I've also got a set of the factory Recaro wide bolster seats that have just been redyed black that I need to do something with Rolling Eyes

I'm now running back on amber indicators as IMHO they set off the polar silver better Grin

Ambers look far better - funny how these things change over time as clear lens were de rigeur 10 years ago. The 964 we have is on stock suspension and feels beautifully damped but perhaps the celebration had sports suspension? Ours is a little too soft and comfortable if anything. Has exactly the same effect on my right knee after a few hours!

Hand You never know. I might be preparing that weekend for a trip to the Philippines but not confirmed.

If it's not on then Spa is a go Thumb

BTW - Nothing really done to the Silver Surfer these last few months as (so far) nothing has fallen off/broken. I'm still waiting to load in my Recaro sports seats - slight slip up on the dying process so need to be redone Rolling Eyes

Oh Zingari that's a lovely looking car and the amber indicators look fantastic.

I had made my mind up that I would like to find a C4 but now I am seriously questioning whether to raise my budget and try and find a Jubilee . Even my good lady who thinks I'm crazy wanting to buy a second old car smiled at the photo of your car and said it looked "nice", this is the biggest compliment she's ever paid a Porsche !

May I ask do they feel very different to drive than a narrow body and how expensive do you think a sorted car would be if I can find one ?

Nimrod - Only driven a NB targa and that was different due to roof rattle etc. WB C4 are heavier but nimble enough in the trad air-cooled kinda way and always feels well planted. Agree the ambers look the best with silver.

Just ckecked 'Big Phil' had two Jubi for sale a month or do ago and he's got #517 in Silver up at £54,995 Here No AC so you lose some weight what But has sports seats Thumb

Cheers,
Paul

Is that the going rate for one of these now £50k + ? I spotted one early last year when I bought my 993 and it was early £30K then, I think I may have missed the boat as they appear to be appreciating as quick as any of the air cooled cars. It was a Voila metallic which I thought was a great colour as well as the silver ones.

Thanks Zingari for pointing out the Jubilee it's a shame it hasn't got air con, I know they hardly ever work but is nice to have if going away on a trip.

Does anybody know anything about the car at Raby's or the dealer ?

Sorry for all the questions your replies are appreciated.

^^^^ AC now works in mine. I've just had a new evaporator and expansion valve dropped in Yahoo

Jubi like the 964 and other air-cooled seem to be on a roll and most I've seen start at £50k whereas 3yrs ago it was very different Rolling Eyes They dont come up for sale very often and most buyers can track the history of cars through the Jubi Register which is run by a chap called Thomas over in Germany. He has catalogued most but there are still some out there that are missing. When I bought mine he was most helpful in sending me .pdf of magazine articles where my car had featured, the 'upgrades' Ninemeister had done (haven't got round to confirming this yet) and previous owner contact details so I could do my research. None of this info was in the hands of the seller Grin

I think the Raby car might be 'reserved' as Frank has done a deal on one - just not sure which yet Wink

Thanks Zingari, I had noticed they had increased in value as the last one I saw advertised I'm sure was mid 40's which seemed a big jump from the 33K I saw at a dealers 18 months ago. I didn't appreciate they were quite that rare.

It sounds like you have got yourself a great car and a bargain thumbsup

If I have missed it being philosophical I guess I've saved myself 50k and the search continues but I think one of these is now top of the wish list.

I might phone Raby tomorrow anyway because I think there were two last week ?
