Congrats dude...beautiful car. No more mods I guess? A lot of friends who went over found it frustratingly hard to mod their porkers.

Chris! No wonder you were going on about Silverstone track days.......you've got one for free now?

You certainly kept that quiet...........but very nice. I've driven a 4S and the levels of grip are very impressive as I'm sure you'll know.

Very pleased for you and no doubt you'll enjoy.


Calvin, such a tease...........'old bits' in face = not nice possibly.

Great choice and i really love those LED rear lights. Have to admit i followed a 997 C2S yesterday and i suddenly got a pang of guilt for selling mine. Concur on the superior levels of grip offered by the 4S. Well done!!!

Hi Peter
Difficult to compare it to the Turbo as the Turbo was so mentally quick I can't say I noticed what the gearbox was doing most of the time
On Paper the new PDK box takes nearly a second off it's 0-62 mph time plus the economy for a Car with this sort of performance is unbelievable (Still showing 25mpg and I have been showing off a bit)
