FAQ and Technical Articles Forums

These sections can only be accessed by PCGB members, I'm afraid.  (Just another bonus that membership offers!)  Mindful of the fact that there is useful information for potential 996 buyers contained on these pages, non-members can click the following links to view or download copies of four articles in PDF format which might help:
 
<996 Buyers Checklist> (25KB)
<996 Model History and Variants> (160KB)
<Members Cars - Part 1> (340KB)
<Members Cars - Part 2> (320KB)

The full content of these sections is as follows:

    There are 3 other sub-forums to the 996 section.  You need to be a PCGB member, and have your forum status changed, and the sub-forums will become visible.  They are hidden to non-members, I'm afraid.

    You know it makes sense to join......
