Here's a few pics from last Fridays Nurburgring DN15 day.

After 3 years with my GT3 I'm still completely blown away by it. We've driven 14,000 miles in those 3 years and its lead to some fantastic adventures. Here's to many more Thumb

Didn't realise that was you, I'd have come over and said hi. Was a great day.

I kept seeing your car - at one point it shot past me Very Happy - but couldn't find you in the car park.

See you at another for sure, so much fun and very lucky with the weather... chucked it down the next morning

When my neck recovers I hope to book the Goodwood charity day in October so may see you at that..

Nice pics and free too!

We got so so lucky with the weather. Total washout the previous evening, biblical on the last 10 miles of the drive down.

Yes, it was magical if you enjoy huge rainbows! I love the countryside around there.

This being my first time I hadn't realised how close the Ring was in relation to Spa. When I get a minute I'm going to look up small houses to buy located between the two... could airbnb the s 1 t out of it and leave a car in the garage.. I'm sure there's some adequate man maths there..

Well after going private (thanks NHS for nothing!) turns out I've got a slipped disc in my neck frustrated ... too much of this Drive

I'm going to have to lay the GT3 up for a while (and count down the days to drive her again. Sad !!) so what's the best trickle charger to buy please?

Thanks Thumb Thumb

Brill to get the GT3 back up to London via Sids @ Porsche Torque for a look over. She had to have a rest at my dads house these past 5 (long!) months but my stupid necks improving enough to think about at least some road trips this year

Took her out for coffee in Nottinghill on Saturday morning. Why not! Cool

Afternoon. Does anyone know where you can purchase the black Nomex material for the 997 Clubsport seats? We're having some trouble sourcing some

in the past Southbound have been able to offer/source pretty much any leather/vinyl/pascha that Porsche has used in our cars. Perhaps worth giving them a call? Always have found them very helpful and friendly.

Hope this helps,

Alex

My last post was a year ago and in that time the GT3 has received what can only be described as "some pampering" whilst it patiently waits as i work to get my neck/back in shape so as to drive her as the makers intended.

The drivers bucket seat was re-trimmed in Nomex in one small area and whilst that was being done the wheel was re-trimmed OEM with the addition of a small RS yellow flick. by Strong & Turton Ltd in Brentford check them out very good indeed.





Servicing and general love continues with Sid at Porsche Torque with the addition of Pagid RS29 brake pads on the last service which are a very good mod indeed. Also had the radio deleted with tray added. purchased from Porsche Chiswick.



New Bose "system" installed for long drives



Original Bilstein dampers were recently refurbed (by Bilstein) and the chassis set up (think "mountain pass" setup) for this years planned road trips by the awesome Centre Gravity. Great outfit and the car now feels fresh and more drivable overall; perfect for my current situation.



Sony got in touch and wanted to have the GT3 for the next Grand Turismo game so she was taken away and sound recorded/image captured 5000 pics for Polyphony in Japan.
More to follow on this, not allowed to share anything at the mo.



Future plan is to get totally fit and just enjoy driving her. First road trip is in a few weeks with a drive to Dijon - Annecy - Route Napoleon - Lorgues - Nice - with all the exciting roads inbetween. Counting down the days to this!

Hi Freddie

Your car is looking lovely. Hope your getting fit now to enjoy her again.
I'm off to Lyon then Cannes, via Route Napoleon. Then to Monaco. Then of to Genoa and Portofino in Italy. My first European tour in my car since I got it 51/2 years ago. Had my front shocks done at CG a day after you.
Regards
Darren

They're really good for road trips - the warp speed option helps I think
Your destinations sound fun. We went to Genoa in the duetto a few years ago and stayed in the Grand Hotel Savoia - nice roof-top bar up there to enjoy the views

Keep us updated as and when you can spill the beans!

In the meantime, I think I might have to get a Playstation (again) too! I have a very, very similar car to yours.



Also thinking of PCM delete because it's so useless, but probably fitting a decent NAV/DAB/iPod head unit.

Nice one Digga Thumb Will do!

Even in a 2018 car I tend to use Google maps though
And the GT3 makes 105db of sweet music..

Hi Freddie, good to see you’re getting active with the GT3, sounds like more than when I came by your office to pick up the steering wheel last year, after which a kerb jumped out and dinged a rear wheel on my way over to Sid’s Mad

Also saw your car at CG, mine was in for some new bits and a more friendly set up, allowing it to “breathe” as Chris put it. Just as well as I’ve been commuting in it more than planned, so your enthusiasm to get back in yours is a great antedote.

Best of luck with that and also with the Sony stuff, very interesting, my son is an avid PlayStation gamer and I’d be more than happy to get him a game featuring a GT3 I know Wink

By the way, like the Bose soundlink idea, do you fix it in any way back there or does it just sit there?
