Default My 964

Hi from New Zealand guys. I suppose I should introduce myself, the racists at work call me "dingo" because im Australian haha! I moved to nz for work 3 years ago, I've always been a muscle car guy but I am now a Porsche fanatic! This is my first 964 I bought back in June and am slowly modifying.1991 c2, tiptronic, 117k
I look foward to sharing and learning from you guys and girls. I'll post photos as I go.

First time she came home!

Cheers! Your car looks great, quite like the yellow interior. I know manuals are more desirable but changing gears seems like hard work to me!

Taking new wheels in for tyres tomorrow morning, hopefully get them back by the afternoon. Can't wait to see what they look like and hopefully I have selected the correct offset!

Default New wheels are on!

Spent the morning bolting on my new wheels, need a small spacer in the front as the calipers only have about 2mm clearance.

hi there they were at a local tyre shop paid under 1k for them. If you go to www.magandtyredirect.com and do a search for 5x130 17x9 you should find them. I had them powdercoated locally after purchase. Unsure of brand, probably Chinese!

Nice find. Just interested, I am keeping my car stock looking. (A few hidden secrets.) Also one of a few that prefer the D90s and flags

yeah I thought so too! Stock is good too. I'm hopeless I can't leave something as it is! Seen a 964 somewhere with polished d90s it looked amazing! Are you keen to share your secrets?

The black wheels look right on the car. Looking forward to seeing your build. If I'm reading the catalogue correctly the 7" fronts have a 40 offset. The offset up front on 7" wheels is typically 55mm, so I'm guessing 15mm spacers will do nicely. At that width you can find spacers with built in studs, and keep it simple.
