  1. You will also have to remove some clips under the headlight and add on the correct ones for the front smilie screws.
  2. Should be an easy enough job, depending on the current state of your stereo wiring. The new unit isn't as deep as an old stereo (and a lot lighter) so there is plenty of room to hide the wiring. I stick the DAB aerial to the passenger rear quarter window, so you'll need to run that wire along under the sill carpet.
  3. It's been around for about a year now, I have one in my 964 and we have fitted half a dozen to customers cars over the year, it's a good unit and suits the 80's / 90's dash very well.

  5. 87-89 28Pin 911 Euro chip from 911 Chips £200 inc postage to UK See here for more info https://www.911chips.com/c1chips.html
  6. John, Is it still the case after Brexit that if a car has been previously registered in the UK and is being re-imported that no Duties/taxes will be due? Cheers Jon
  7. The Milwaukee kit is very good. Myself and all the lads in my workshop use it. There is a slightly less powerful version of that gun, 1400nm or thereabouts which should be cheaper and well up to most jobs you'll come across. Eurocarparts often have deals if you keep an eye out. One of the best bits of kit I have from them (Milwaukee) is their cordless soldering iron, couldn't be without one now.
  8. They are carbon so much lighter than the standard sports seats but not as light as say a Recaro Pole Position. They have a fixed back rest.
  9. 1969 911T in Blood orange, bought from a work colleague as a part restored project which I then finished off. I was 21 I think, so it would have been 1991/92
  10. It's great, fitted a few extras such as cruise control, one touch indicators etc. It's the 225 BAM engine. Also has the Black leather / Blue Alcantara interior. Even though it's 18 years old it feels better than a lot of newer cars, certainly better screwed together.
  11. This is my Winter Hack and a fine job it does too. 2002 Audi S3
  12. Sepia is definitely a marmite colour, unfortunately I'm not brave enough for that colour scheme! It could work, but equally... I suspect it will end up as a stripped out track focused car. I like trackdays in the 964 but I also love it as a road car and fear that if I modify it any further to improve it's on track performance I will lose my love for it on the road. So perhaps the 993 is the opportunity to build something for the track.
  13. When did 'need' ever come into this hobby, can never have too many toys! I was attracted to this as it's not a low mileage "investment" so the gloves are off. Think it will need to lose a few KGs to start with....
  14. So I recently bought a 993, a Manual C2, but with high miles - nudging 200K It's currently at a friends house and due to travel bans / quarantine etc I've not seen it yet. But by all accounts it seems to have been well maintained and is a useable car as is. I have my own ideas but am curious to know what you guys would do with it if it were yours and you had a few quid to spend on it?
