Bought a G3 Clay Mitt from halfords this morning after reading a recommendation somewhere, brilliant, so much easier than a clay bar,works really well and takes half the time Thumb

Not great pics I'm afraid:





The colour is a little darker grey than the wheels, was intending to paint them a closer match but I think they look close enough!

Thanks to a small stone from the car in front, I've just fitted a new pair of new condensers.



Later today she is off to have the wheels referbed.

Gert Carnewal fitted his modified GT exhaust on the way back from Dinslaken last week. Even Phil was impressed with the new noise!

Sorry to hear that, would something like a zunsport grille have prevented that from happening?

A minor sevice,brake fluid change and 12 months mot

Thanks to D & G at silverlink,good lads.


Been told about them, out of interest what sort of money do they charge for the minor service? I'm not due till next nov but will probably use them as they are pretty close to me

Scratch that, just found their pricing on website, seems pretty reasonable to me Thumb

D & G are a great bunch, certainly best in NE for me. Picking up the 997.1 from them tomorrow after some brake pipe replacement, water hose replacements, brake fluid change, and exhaust stud rework.

I was mick, that and the H&S BYPASS give a nice growl. Thumb and his workshop was amazing , I did not expect that or the collection of 993's he had there.

4 discs, pads, wear sensors, anti-squeal discs (2 sets of 4 because i didnt know which size i needed 28/30mm), 4 Michelin Supersports that i need to order this week, and a trip to CG last week for Geo!

And i booked it in to OPC this morning for a new Ashtray unit and power socket.

This forum needs an 'empty pockets' emoticon.
