Well last month I had that dilemma of ‘do I keep my car?’ Well I still have it, and I have made progress with respect to the suspension. I have swapped back to my 17-inch black rims. I’ve only managed a few trips but the car is noticeably better. I even got my wife to drive it to see what she thinks, and apart from a white van man trying to force us into a drystone wall as he was on our side of the road, she felt it was better.
Interestingly, on tyres, we have changed the P Zeros on our Macan early, as we have never found that the car handled as well as the one we drove at the Porsche Experience Centre. We have opted for all-season tyres, the Pirelli Scorpion Verde.
Since my 996 has been garaged more than not recently I have treated it to a cover just to keep the dust away from it. It will get a full week’s worth of use next week, and even though I was quite negative towards it last month, I am actually looking forward to using it! Also, if you follow Porsche news, the Sport Turismo was launched recently. We were invited to Bristol OPC to see the launch, but there was another special there, one of the new British Legends 911s – this was the Nick Tandy car, which is a GTS C4 with a few trick bits on it! Nice!
