    Smile First mod for the Porsche

    The S has its radiators behind the front bumper, without any protection .........



    So I thought I`d better get some mesh. Browsed google, found lots of Halfords type expanded metal in various sizes, then came across a company that supplied a kit for the GT3 RS, which is the same front bumper, for £212 incl. vat and del. Thinking it must be special, I had to buy it didn`t I
    It arrived today ....................



    Ok, its anodised and shaped to fit straight in, but, it`s the same material as a £20 sheet from Halfords ........ what a pratt I`ll definitely ask questions next time I want something Porsche related.

    lol, thanks mate

    It`s not the turbo,(too expensive at the mo) but a C2S, still, it gets to 60 in 4.6secs and on to 182.
    I`m gonna keep for approx 2 years, then get a 997 turbo, they should be more afforable by then.
