    Sold my LE Turbo

    Now thats a great idea, i really do like the speedsters, and the speed thing would not bother me. Have had 3 Turbo's 2 targs and 4 sc,s and a couple of 993's over the years but never a speedster.I doubt the come up for sale very often.

    Sold my LE Turbo

    Thanks Digger, These difficult times have netted me a bargain with this property, no so for the builder who went bust and his bank desperate to sell and get the cash in, 18 apartments at about £145 k each will return me over £2.5 mill, may be when the project is complete i will hunt her down and buy her back , or you could sell me yours

    To be honest digger i have just purchased 18 un finished apartments for over £1 mill off the receiver and i could do with the extra cash. Its breaking my heart to sell it but is was the last to go, sold my Aston ,BMW 840 and my Ferrari this year also. When i have finished this project i will get another one .

    Sold my LE Turbo

    It was going to Switzerland for £45k but Neil at the Hairpin Company made me a last minuite offer i could not refuse, he tells me he purchased the Black LE Turbo with 200 miles on the clock also. He has a thing for LE Turbo's and far to much money ,you should see his stock , he has some fantastic cars.

    Sold my LE Turbo

    In a moment of madness i have agreed to sell my LE Turbo,The dealer collects the car on Monday i was putting the car away for it's winter hibernation and realised i had only used it a few times this year, still only has 22,000 miles on the clock. Monday will be a sad day, i will be sorry to see her go, Now on the look out for a nice 993 Turbo perhaps. or another IB , not usually without a 911 for long, i guess i can change my user name http://s121.photobucket.com/albums/o228/Tu...oto/LE%20Turbo/

  12. Richard at Turbo Thomas can do bespoke, he made an excellent job of this for me.
  13. You could try this Contact Peter at www.camcoat.com I had mine ceramic coated, i had a performance coating on the inside and camchrome coated on the outside for looks realy, you could just have the inside done, Great service, Very quick turn around, the heat exchangers can be coated also but i had SS. I also used Richard at Turbo Thomas to make a free flowing muffler very pleased with his work.
  14. It does seem to be faster and more responsive when warmed up, less turbo lag, stays on boost longer, due to the 1 bar spring, removed the air injectors and pump, also fitted new rear muffler which i am told allows free flowing. anyway it looks nice. Made by Richard at Turbo Thomas
