Lucky wife. They are great cars. Mine was a daily. 45k miles in 4 years and just needed 1 set of front pads and a couple of set of new boot during this time. Only lost 6k too when I sold it. Have toyed with the idea of getting another as a daily....may still yet!

Looking superb cliff Cool and that's a great angle of the 997.

Wheel colour really suits the bodywork but would look even better lowered and wheel spacers fitted Smile

Love those alloys wing, really look superb , you cant beat the look of concave alloys on a 911. those are a very clean design and perfectly match the other exterior mods. really nice job.
How are you finding the 20" rims on a 997 , I know your roads are in better condition than the UK roads.

Mot.
Front pirellis - used the Pirelli cash back offer (pcgb) as well as haggling.
Car recently developed a knock over bumps. New rear springs and geo setup under warranty.
Tracker subscription renewal.

Great service from Chris et al at OPC Guildford.
