  1. Oh wow, that’s a swish setup, very jealous. Enjoy!
  2. Consumable engines on the 996, new one every 20k miles I think It's not been opened up yet, so not sure, just hoping it's nothing too expensive for him.
  3. It's becoming a bit of an annual pilgrimage this, had a few days running around Scotland with a few former Z owners. Here's some pics. Traditional starting point, breakfast by the bridge. Sadly Day 1 saw issues on the 996 in the group, fortunately a proper Porsche was on hand to take the owner and his luggage on the rest of the trip. Some nice metal on show, even let a 2 wheel nutter come along too. Now the proper stuff... And a furry friend.
  4. This is so close now I can smell fresh lacquer. Absolutely stunning build mate, thanks for detailing it on here, been a fascinating follow. I may have missed it (or forgotten), what colour will it be?
  5. Hardcore that bang mate, sorry to see it. Hope the bill isn't too big and you're back out soon enough.
  6. I have a question, why is it impossible to get a quote without a phone call? Every time I need to get new prices, particularly on something modified, I have to do a call - a webform would be sooooooo much more convenient.
  7. Only if you’re buying from Toyota, not trying to get hold of one nearly new, like the Yaris prices.
  8. I’d registered for updates ages ago. Never got a peep out of ‘em. I wouldn’t pay over the odds for one, it’s not gonna be night and day better than the BRZ was, if you spent £12k on one, you’d still have a hell of budget to modify compared to £30k+
  9. I was hitting refresh on my browser all morning, never got close to a potential buy. I’m not that disappointed because there’s plenty of used options for less money, but it was the first time I’ve ever been tempted by a brand new car.
  10. That's the whole point of the article and why the Mail froth over it, it's got nothing practical to it, other than stoking up emotions and generating ad-revenue. Keeps us away from the NHS privatisation, various criminal proceedings, rocketing inflation, the shambles of Brexit, tax statuses, fraud in the "fast track covid contracts", fraud in the furlough scheme, cuts to welfare, housing unaffordability, food and energy poverty and who knows what else. They did similar with the war in Ukraine the other day, which the Mail would have you believe Boris is fighting on his own, despite the best efforts of the BBC / woke people / metro liberal elite / Joe Biden / smashed avocados / trans people or whatever other fabricated "enemy" is hot this week. It would be funny, if it wasn't for the number of voters who get all worked up into a lather about noise and forget about matters of substance.
  11. I’ve used Sheffield to retrofit cruise and the recall and Stockport for paint. I’m due a service soon, not decided whether to go back to Porsche or a specialist. PO got the last one done at some specialist down south.
  12. She’s been in twice recently, rear axle carrier recall, which was fine, no difference. Then for front bumper paint after some idiot reversed into my bumper and drove off, despite TWO members of the public trying to stop them driving off. Both times the service has been great.
  13. The last one? Pitch black car park, tripod, 30 second exposure, walk back and forth in front of the car using your phone torch. I wish I’d done a better job painting the roof line.
  14. Funnily enough, I was thinking after I reviewed the photos, that I needed a little bit more ambient light, like we had at this location.
