It was a great forum in yesteryear. Faceache et al are mostly responsible for this and other forum's huge drop in activity. And that's a shame because by its very nature all social media are...

Headlight bulb upgrade to hi-luminosity LED H4

As we all know from experience, the Evo 5 and 6 headlights are really very poor. At least, compared to contemporary cars, they really are very dull by comparison.
I don't know whether this is...

LANCER badge

I also don't think I updated about the LANCER badge that I broke quite a while back.

Both the L and the R were snapped off of the ends, courtesy of me being a ham-fisted moron drying the car with...

Heat Matt

It was a time-consuming process, having to turn the matt over 3 or 4 times with each single stitch - plenty of stitches around the outside

Bonnet Heat Mat Rescue/Refurb

I haven't updated on what I did with the under bonnet heat shield yet, so here's how I rescued the floppy frayed and layer-separated fibreglass matting.

Originally, I simply use some wide...

Oil change day yesterday.

I love seeing fresh golden oil on the dipstick afterwards.

I was watching a SAMMIT youtube video last night that features a white one - and it looked great in the evening light on camera - very slightly off-white with a high metallic content and a slightly...

More comparisons

While we had the 993, we also had the 986 Boxster S alongside it. It was the perfect counterfoil to judge their respective handling traits, because one was so well sorted and the other made you work...

993 Prices, LOL

Well, yeah...

In 2004 I sold my Carrera S into the trade for £28k. It had 72k miles on it at the time.
I saw MY OLD CAR for sale last year.

For £75k

Damn.

One more thing to add - and that is heel & toe downshifting. This was a very important skill in keeping the 993 balanced into the corners.

Like I said - it was a demanding chassis, but one which...

All the above is a pretty long-winded explanation of how an old 911 is driven best around a bend.
It deserves to be pretty long-winded, though, because it does take a bit of deliberate analysis to...

I probably ought to say what cars I'd owned and driven prior to the 993, for context.

I mentioned the FTO in a previous post. About 6 or so months after getting the Boxster S, I swapped the FTO...

993 Carrera S

The 993 is an old car. I don't mean old as in the year it was made - early to late 90s, my old one being a 1998 car - but the 993 platform was a version of the same chassis of 20 years previous,...

Added Boxster thoughts

Some added thoughts on early Boxsters, just as they come to me.

If anyone is looking for an early Boxster as a road car, this is where the S model pulls clear of the non-S. On track it's mostly...

Boxster comparisons

One thing that has sprung to mind since I've started writing this is the contrast that certain cars provide to each other. I hadn't really thought about this until now - but the most stark...

Bit more Boxster guff

I mentioned that it was back in 2000 when we bought our Boxster S?

While we were on the waiting list I was invited to Bedford for a Boxster driving day. The event was split into 4 areas in 4...
