Looks lovely! Probably would have had amber indicators from the factory being an 'R'? Think mine should too.Meanwhile, the sunny weather this last weekend has brought my own 996 out of hibernation - happy days in the Cotswolds

Good work.Looks lovely! Probably would have had amber indicators from the factory being an 'R'? Think mine should too.
I've been busy waving the spanners around on my 996. New discs and pads all round and a post-winter clean up under the arches, painting coil pack heat shields and disc backing plates etc.
Old discs looked perfect on the outside but were heavily pitted on the inner faces. Drew some funny looks changing them on the street in central London. :lol:
Few photos from an essential run in the sun today to bed in the brakes:
I've also added Thule aero bars to allow me to put my bike on the roof. That was a bit of a challenge in itself. The set screws in the mounting plates in the roof rails were knackered so I had to replace all the plates. This required removing the pillar trims and dropping the sides of the headliner! Bit fiddly but DIY-able.
All I ever hear is how good they are. Might be worth heading over to 911uk forum as there are a fair few on there with more experience of them.At the risk of opening a can of worms, has anyone had much experience of the Porsche Cayman?
I've been looking at 911's for a few weeks. My budget is somewhere between £13-18k (depending on if I sell my '65 beetle or keep it).
Typically that should get me a 20 year old 996 in reasonably good shape with a decent history, less than 100k miles and no obvious faults. I'm after a coupe with a manual gearbox ideally.
I've looked at and driven a couple, but keep being drawn to ad's for Cayman and Cayman S's for the same money, or frequently less. That sort of price buys a very good Cayman with half the miles and probably 5 years newer than a 996 of the same price.
So, have any of you boys and girls out there got or have had a Cayman? If so, what are your thoughts on them?
I've had a couple of Boxsters in the past, so have an expectation of what they might drive like, or are they a very different driving experience?
Not actually driven a Cayman (or even sat in one) yet, but a mate of mine had one and raved about how good it was.
