Thanks for the compliments.

Sub,
My front bumper and side skirts are the same as XXXBoxsterXXX's setup. It's from the Porsche Aerokit II.

BTW, for all of you dark-colored car people, I've found that Meguire's NXT wax does a really good job on filling in the swirl marks and produces a very nice shine in one easy step. It doesn't last very long but I usually polish my car about every month anyway. And it's fairly inexpensive. Great for a daily driven car like mine.

That photo is between Blackburn and Clitheroe in Lancashire. My parents live up there, and I was visiting.

I heard there was not much snow up in the North East, but Lancashire, Staffordshire and Derbyshire (the 3 places I had to travel over Christmas) were pretty hard hit.

I try and get the top down as much as possible, even when it is cold. Just make sure I always have a warm coat and hat in the car!

I was in Blackburn not long ago.. at Ewood park.

nothing better than top down, heaters blasting, warm hat, gloves and coat. Funny how Blackburn was hit with snow and yet Newcastle was not.
This time last year i was called out at 3.00am to inspect a property for the causes of a gas explosion. It was snowing that bad i had to take a jeep. I never saw snow as bad as that and they warned 2004 was going to be the worst on record..

Great place Ewood!! I spend every other Saturday there! Gets a bit depressing at times, but at least we managed to offload our old manager to a certian north east team...

The DVLA made it quite clear when I purchased my registration that if I messed around with the spacing, they could confiscate the plate. I also heard that the police are cracking down on plates with 'irregular' spacings, although I still see loads around.

yer, Ewood park is great... however blackburn do seem to be doing ok now after a bad start. I think top ten finish for them.
Newcastle however if we dont start playing we wont even make Europe.

I thought i was right about the reg plate spaces. My spaces are illegal but not as bad as some i have seen. I think its a good idea what DVLA are doing providing they know when to stop.


heres a pic of my car, of course... it started raining. Just when my camera was charged it started raining.. I couldnt believe it!

heres a few pictures.

Porsche986,

I love your lights! I plan on getting my clears in the next few weeks. You mentioned in another thread about installing clear or silver bulbs that flash orange. I've seen the silver bulbs on E-Bay, but haven't been able to find the clear bulbs. Which do you have? Is one better than the other? Any idea where to get the clear bulbs that flash orange? Do you have these in the rear and sides as well?

Thanks,

ddb

Thanks, yes i have clear lights in front, side and back.

I did use the clear lights, but i have upgraded now to all silver and they look awsome!
The clear version are hard to find but these silver ones are good quality if not better than the clear version.
Again they flash orange.

I have silver in front, back and side, they all flash orange and the actual glass is silver.
The clear glass that flash orange is double the price and i am sure i got them from ebay. But honest there is no quality loss in the silver. Both i would rate 10/10

here is the link, i would say 100% go for them.
