.....a future classic.........the 987 Black Edition........

I have already done more to the 987 in a couple of weeks than I did to the 981 and it has that genuine “hobby” car feeling about it (like the 993) as you start to get to know every nut and bolt of how its put together........lets see if that becomes a keeper like the 993, great combo of classics Bandit

Ps I’m starting to get that carbon feeling Grin



Definitely a better home for carbon trim than the 993. Did you consider the spyder?

........... Did you consider the spyder?


Yes........the 718 now it is 6 cylinder Grin however, you cannot get one and I won't pay overs, plus not available until the end of the year and the same old problem with the roof being manual ......I use a convertable with roof down 90% of the time and so I often put the roof up / down several times on a run if the weather is mixed, pulling over to do that on a spyder would just mean I would not put it down as often which defeats the object for me. A good example was this morning, it was threatening heavy rain but was sunny, I started off roof down, it started to rain, roof up but soon passed so roof back down, all in a short 5 mile run to the office. If I had the spyder I would have driven another car.

I did look at 987 spyders but I don't think they look as good as the normal boxsters which made it can even easier decision (whereas the 981 / 718 spyders do look good) .....plus the 987 black edition has the same engine / power as the spyder for a lot less capital. I'm lovin the car so far and don;t regret not going more hardcore spyder or cayman R (I looked at a couple of those but really wanted a convertible) .......I'm currently in the middle of playing around with the DSC PASM programmable unit to give me a customised normal and fast road setup for my car, it is just such a flexible solution with the DSC unit, great fun just trying the different settings and I'm almost there with my perfect 2 car setup at the push of a button Thumb
ps combined with the sport chrono on the manual it actually feels like it gives you a 4 car setup Wink
I'm booked into get the car remapped by Waynbe Schofield later this week so will be really interesting to see what he does with the normal and sport maps on the car, my gut feeling as I get to know the car better is there is a lot of scope to make it run better without emission considerations and I would think an easy 10-20hp even on a NA engine ie its basically the same engine as was in my 981GTS and the caymans

Lol, I’m not driving it but I’ll let my mate know, he has always been into Ferrari's (he is on their exclusive buyers list for special editions, he has had that many) but I'm trying to convert him Thumb

Yes they are but with a carbon twist Smile




I got them from an ebay retailer........

https://www.ebay.co.uk/usr/ej-parts?_trksid=p2057872.m2749.l2754

Most online retailers are a pain now now as you have to submit all sorts of docs to them but if you search "show plates" then they don't insist in the docs, the plates are still legal and pass an MOT no problems.

They can also vary a lot in price (pressed plates) but this supplier was about the cheapest and good quality.

I’m not sure I can....... especially if he’s been watching that crazy Drama on the Brussels, Belgium Corporation, I’m afraid there’s no helping him now especially if he’s in past series 4 !
