Hi all,

Im looking to purchase a 996 in the new year so taking my time to learn every last little thing about them and what to look for etc. If there is a Hampshire meet (I'm Southampton) or anything? I'd love to pop along say hi and "steal" as much information from your brians as you willing to give up :worship:

haha

Thanks,

Andy
 
It's probably the wrong time of year for most Porsche fans to be venturing out but the Southern Region of the PCGB meet each month at the 'Empress of Blandings' on Romsey Road, Copythorne, SO40 2PF.

Their next meeting is at 7.30pm next Tuesday, 12th.

In my experience there's always plenty of 'Brians' at PCGB meets. :grin:
 
Thanks bud, your siggy says your Kent - are you infact more local?

I know the Empress - go there quite a bit with the PH lot.

which group is PCGB??

Ill try and make sure i get a nosey on over. lol I think im gona be a bit of a different 911 owner and using it as a daily rather than a toy :)

ps - saw a 996.2 on here for £10k and 100k miles, they do exist! :D

No, I am in Kent but I'm an on-off member of the Porsche Club of Great Britain and found the info in their latest magazine.

If the Southern Region is the same as other PCGB regions that I've experienced they'll be a group of very nice people but not as 'enthusiastic' about driving Porsches as people on here and nothing like most Piston-Headers I've met.

Better than nothing 'til next Spring though. :thumb:
 
Ar brillaint more people to annoy :) haha thank you!

unfortunatly the PH season has also pretty much come to an end, i know a few 911 owners who daily drive but they arent "that" technical. I want to maintain mine myself so want to know everything i can :D

:bandit:
 
Hi Andy, I live in Southampton myself and have a 996 C4 Cab, I have only been to the 50th charity event at Goodwood in October. I to am starting to look to see if there are any meets in the south as always a great excuse to give the car a blast. Good luck with your hunt.

Hi Andy,

Will keep you posted if I come across any meets too. Are you with PH as we usually have good turn outs at the West Meon Hut or the Empress.

Ive decided that too much knowledge maybe a bad thing and just read so many horror stories. So ill buy a car a bit below my budget and keep a couple grand spare just encase! But ill learn what tele tele signs to look for when buying!
 
Im in Southampton and a PHer. I have the GT2 bodied 993 its been to both south coast sites. I am more than happy to come and look at cars for you when decide the time is right. PM me your number if I can be of any help.Regards Chris
