Hi chaps :bye:

I was directed here by a friendly gentleman on PH who recommended I sign up here as he knew I was looking at a 911.

I've always wanted a 911 and finally got the opportunity to buy a perfect example. Got a facelift 996, and it should get delivered this week. Pics to follow...
 
Haway.

Welcome etc. Few more details on your new toy would be welcome, canny lad.
 
Welcome, I'm from Sunderland, there seems to be a growing number of owners in the ne, good to see
 
Thanks for the welcome. And it's a C2 facelift, 86k miles, metropole interior, alcantara roof lining, FPSH and it gets delivered this week. The only thing I am not 100% on it the wheels. It'd look lovely on some Turbo alloys.

Very nice. I am increasingly drawn to the 996 shape (not so much I'd change my 993 for one though!). Chris W is very much your man for wheels. Have a look for Exel (no c) wheels, he is just the sort of perfectionist you want when buying stuff for your shiny new car.
 
welcome always good to have more owners from the NE :thumbs:

...and sideskirts, Carrera rear spoiler and rear wiper. Very nice! :thumb:

A vanilla 996.1 looks good on the turbo-style alloys but not sure it would suit a 996.2 with the rear Carrera spoiler and sideskirts. Live with the Carrera 5-spokes for a while and you may grow to like them (I wasn't sure about mine at first but after three years I wouldn't change them for anything now. Very very easy to clean as well).


Welcome aboard! :bye:
 
:welcome: I really like those wheels not the turbos but hey it is a very minor issue,love the car enjoy :thumbs:
 
And with pics after I've just washed and waxed it...

Congratulations - it looks brilliant and i for one prefer those wheels.

I am looking so I would be really interested if you would be open to sharing your buying story ie how many did you look at, how did you find it, how did you check it was good etc etc. Price is not rellevant as all great cars are bargains :)

I am in North Yorks so i look forwrard to meeting on a run sometime when i get mine
