Hi Guys,

Thanks for all your kind comments Thumb And I know it's good if you say it is KP Wink

K888ETH, Thanks! Manu makes a big this of reflections for his realism style.

Manu is definitely worth following on Instagram at manucampart Chris, there's lots of good Porschie (sic) stuff to enjoy from an alternative perspective.

I suppose I could always come with the Macan Turbo PP while it's bad weather John, it's an interesting an car in itself and sounds mint.

I'm getting the car out next Tuesday (barring more saltiness) and taking to Porsche OPC for an oil change, which automatically qualifies to for the new Porsche Classic Register.

There are nice benefits to be had here, see Porsche GB website for all the details

https://www.porsche.com/uk/accessoriesandservice/classic/register/

The reason Porsche are being generous is so they can get a handle on what's out there and tempt classic business back into OPC's. I wouldn't exactly say they weren't interested a few years ago but it's different ball game now with the values of classic cars and they want a slice of the pie. I will say however that I've always found them to be very competitive with parts an labour and the mechanics love to see them.

They are already reintroducing classics into the showrooms and selling them alongside new models, it's a very lucrative business and apart from the money it's added brand value.

Nice work if you can get it. Anyway I'll let you know what happens after I pick the old gal up on Tuesday evening

Cheers,
Paul

Hi Paul!

Interesting to read about the classic register. Thanks for the info, I didn't even know it existed.
Oil change it is then..... Thumb

Cheers
Mike

Hi M,

No problem, it's a good deal and apart from all the goodies like the plate holders, nitrogen for the tyres free washes and classic pack, it's worth having your Porsche classic registered in your own name back at the factory.

Hi Chaps,

All done and I wish I'd cleaned the underside of the car first but that's a job for over the winter. Anyway here is a link to the muck Grin

https://video.citnow.com/vxGB3mg7MNF

It was great to see catch up few old friends and new this morning for coffee and bacon rolls generously supplied by Porsche Centre Teesside thumbsup Big thanks to all an especially to Andy Wexham who did the service on my car.

A few photos showing the new Porsche Classic Register plates and a few arty shots.
























She's all pressure washed and polished off and I think that will be about it for this year.



Cheers,
Paul

Hi Chaps,

The painting from Manu Campa arrived last week and I've now had it mounted.

I've hung it my office I think it's too good for the garage?



Cheers,
Paul

Hi Chaps,

After signing up to the Porsche Classic Register, today I received my first volume (that's the only way I could describe it - actually their 2nd edition) of Porsche Classic Originale, beautifully wrapped.





It's very useful for showcasing parts that Porsche are reintroducing for their classics. Now here's the thing, for some time I've been considering replacing my speakers. One of them popped last year and I thought at the time Frank Sinatra had had a heart attack, then I remembered he was dead so it must have been a speaker that had croaked it.

So I had been wondering what the options might be, lo and behold this tome landed today and I opened up and there was the answer....all the original official speakers are being made again and sold as front & rear kits, happy daze!





If any of you like me are still running your original speakers, I can assure you they will be well past their sell by date. I'll probably have to can one of Edward's bitcoins in to pay for them though Grin

A Merry Christmas to all our readers!

Have a great one mates!

Paul santa

Just read through 67 pages of amazing posts. A pity photobucket messed up a lot of photographers, but still a great read! Amazing work Smile

Thanks Jay Thumb

I'm pleased you have enjoyed it. Photo bucket has destroyed a lot of of good threads but hopefully, over the Xmas break, I'll restore a few of the photos.

All the best,
Paul

Hi Chaps,

I hope you are all well thumbsup

You know when you have an itch and you're not happy until it's been well an truly scratched? Well I've really had a go at this one.

My car did look mint but I've never been happy not knowing what lurks underneath. The things you can't see are always going to creep up on you and personally I'm never going to be happy until I know everything is minty, mint fresh nooo

You may remember a couple of years ago (if you've read this thread) I decided to investigate under the sills and you all know where that lead (see earlier posts) anyway the usual suspect rusty bits on 911's as we all know is around and under the windscreen seal...... "JOHN!.... Check this out please mate!"













I hate surprises and this was no surprise. Years ago I insisted the windshield come out before I bought the car to check and repair anything lurking and couple of small issues (as you can see) were rectified but I had no way of knowing if it was holding up, it wasn't and strangely I feel vindicated, or I will be when John's had it through his care and replaced it with new metal.

Cheers,
Paul

Hmmmm, you just couldn't help yourself could you Grin

To be honest Paul, you can't put a price on peace of mind. Get it squared away and sleep soundly.

Always better to dive in than bury your head in the sand and lwaysa job to do on an older car.

Good to see you keeping busy.

Thanks Chaps,

Fortunately I didn't have as much to do as you Tom, you make me look like an amateur, erm, what am I talking about? I am an amateur! Grin

I forgot to mention, my Porsche Classic Membership Pack arrived a couple of weeks ago, even though my car was the first to join via OPC Porsche Teesside the HQ had run out of pack. Which means there has obviously been a good take up on Porsche's Classic offer.




Cheers,
Paul

Hi Paul,

How you doing? I feel the pain with the bodywork, mine was away for about 4 years (or was it 4 months/) in the 'North East's own private bodyshop', I'm paranoid about seeing something nasty appear and I think I may have spotted something!

I must investigate that Porsche Classic thing, do Porsche publish a price for that service you have to buy to get the 'free' membership or do I have to go and talk to OPC?

Cheers
Steve

Go to an OPC and have a service or oil change and you get membership for 12 months. I tried to add the T&Cs but usual issues with file size. (when will this be sorted?)

Please forgive a 993er posting on this thread, but I had a separate thread re this and Paul replied. I think you have to go to one of the 4 "classic Porsche partners", not just any OPC. I believe they are Hatfield, Swindon, Glasgow and Leeds.

Oil change is £330 inc VAT, 12k service is £430 which really isn't too bad value in my book. 24k service is a ludicrous £1,100! Surprised

I haven't done it yet as car is due to go back to Northway soon for a service. Will probably get an oil change next year at Swindon (who seemed very helpful indeed).
