geedeeAs the proud owner of a 991.1 of 2012 vintage I thought to apply to join this section of the forum. I have been fortunate to have enjoyed a close up and personal history with air cooled Porsches and Porsche club folks over the years, so much so that my membership number has only three digits. Should you wish any further detail of my past sins, if you care to visit the 911SC section of the forum and work your way through a rambling thread I started entitled "Air Cooled Memories" I suspect there is detail enough contained therein to create a clone....(-:As for my "new" Porsche I bought it sight unseen other than a via a walk around vid from a BMW dealership, which is a few hundred miles distant from me. I managed to talk the salesman into creating a vid of the underside with the underskirts removed during their PDI checks. The Vids in combination with scans of the service book were enough for me to become hooked, and with the backup of distance selling regs and that I was dealing with a large multi franchise dealership (Porsche included), I was reasonably confident that I might not suffer any real issues... Time will tell.Having only owned my C4S for just over a month or so, I have yet to reach the time limitation before I can put it through the 111 point check at my local Porsche dealership with the hope of putting it on to the extended warranty scheme, though whether I need to remove the grills a former owner has installed in front of the rads or not..Hmm..? I guess I can understand in very warm climatic conditions that grills being a restriction/disturbance in the airflow reaching the rads could create issues... or/and that dependant on materials the grills themselves can corrode to the extent their mesh might expand and further restrict airflow..Hmm..?My local Porsche centre were kind enough to carry out a complimentary health check which kicked up nothing other than puncture repair out of date... so far, so good..?Yeah it is quite a different machine from the air cooled Porsches I enjoyed over a decade or so and light years from the old sports car I have enjoyed for the last 20 or so years, but in time I hope to feel ever more at home behind it`s multitude of controls... You can bet I will give it my best shot.. (-:I will try to remember the process to post a pic for any who might have interest..fingers crossed. FAILURE on the pic front... Seems I managed in the past direct from my PC without the need to give control of my pics to a third party, which I am not inclined to do... One might think that PCGB had funds enough to create a more user friendly interface..? NOT that I am complaining, just a tad confused.. (-:
geedeeHope the replacement of your Turbos goes as well as you might hope Simon.
