Heres a tip: Don't just polish your RS and put it back in the garage. Take it to a track, drive it as hard as you can...then put it back in the garage till next time

You only live once....stop dreaming....just do it

Here's another tip. If you own a garage, always wash the car before you put it away.

Your trackday disc cracks will just disappear !

Engine cover strut replacement
 
For the lazy ones (or time efficient ), order just one heavy duty strut and only replace the one on the right, behind the airbox.
This heavy duty strut is for the turbo, to take the weight of the teatray spoiler.
 
You could even remove the one from the other side, to save weight !!

being a tight b'stard - my top tips to enjoy your 964 make it o faster costing ~£0

earth strap on exhaust housing o2 sensor
Replacing coils, and sorting out coil earth points
Denso iridium tough plugs
getting that guy in the cotswolds to do your tappets for £100
cup pipe to replace back box
cleaning battery earth
k&n cone filter attached to 90 deg to catch cold air
gearbox - Silkolene SILKTRAN SYN 5 75W-90
engine Silkolene PRO S 10W-50 (you can drive it like a idiot endlessly on pro s)

learning to enjoy the oil leaks - the engine is fine and a £8k rebuild will make it go 0 faster

Then drive it like an idiot, and keep it dirty

Not sure replacing coils, fitting Denso Kryptonite plugs, fitting a cup pipe, K&N filters and Silkolene oils cost £0?

So, who's this 'guy in the Cotswolds' who does tappets for £100?

PA2000 Alarm Immobilizer Handset:

The rubber buttons on one of my keyfobs had deteriorated, I think from coming into contact with oil (or polish ...beat you to it!).
The system was supplied in UK by Hamilton & Palmer in Sevenoaks, Kent. Tel: 01732 760022. Speak to margaret Heather.

They have a refurb kit for £15 inc P&P which contains new casing, rubber buttons, new battery and screws. Delivered next day, dead easy to swap the innards from the old fob into the new. Should be good for another 20 years.

Phil,
 
I swapped dizzy caps (only) and plug leads a couple of years ago to good effect; much crisper response.  Last year I suddenly encountered very sluggish running, fired up easily but wasn't happy, wanting to stall all the time and well down on power.  It was one of those rare events where the simplest possible solution actually worked in that I replacement fuel filter and immediately cured the problem. 
 
This coincided with a period of relatively little use of my car for the first time in my ownership and I had visions of gunge in the fuel due to petrol sitting in the tank for too long and possible ethanol erosion of fuel lines so I had the fuel pump swapped as a precaution as I really didn't like the idea of being stranded.  No repeat of poor running.  Mileage c 74k.
