Nothing of late, however I did sit in a friends 996 Carrera the other day and it did make me realise that this is such a special car (as everything about it felt better than the 996!)

So I should get around to treating it to a bloody good clean and polish ready for the spring

Lol, of course!! One of my best purchases ever!

They are getting ready for some TLC though as those unprotected lips aren’t as shiny, plus a few of the chrome plated split bolts are loosing their plating....just general wear and tear

Amsoil MTF trans fluid, and a full set of aux and aircon belts and tensioners.

Changed the lot :) You could feel the free play and gritty feeling on the old ones, no wonder I had a squeak!





Also have a water pump and thermostat to fit soon ish as preventative maintenance.

A spare 3:15 LSD fitted with that ever elusive finned diff cover!

Mine broke years ago and I've been trying to find one used. Success!
