Thumbs up 2006

Hi everyone, here is a picture of our October 2006 997.1 Turbo with currently 120.000 km on the clock.

Only mods are Europipe stage 1 exhaust with 100 cell cats.

Average fuel consumption is 10.4L /100km (22.6 mpg) and on long journeys its down to 9L/100 km (26 mpg) at 130km/h (82mph).

Zero oil consumption between oil changes.

Over the years we had a broken gearshift mechanism (within the first week), 2 new front radiators, replaced a fuse for the engine compartment fan and just recently removed and cleaned the starter motor.

Lovely car! It passed annual technical inspection with flying colors for the eight time now.

Picture is taken in front of our shop, first leaves are falling and except for some snow we drive it all year round.

Cheers, Stef

​​​​​​​

Can't believe the fuel economy is so good! I'm lucky to get below 13L/100km.

​​​​​​​That's with cruise control on, air conditioning off and our low back pressure exhaust.
