Nice meeting you at Cars and Coffee yest. Gorgeous car, and still looks like a clone of another customer's at first glance (even though her front end is missing)!

It was nice talking to you, Simon. Sad what happened to Holly's 997. I am glad she is fine.

My car came from factory with this badge. The simple "911" badge was introduced as an option for the 997.2 model (if I am not wrong).

My VIN build shows this option as:
911 - Model Designation "911"

Suncoast Parts has it on their website in black or chrome:

I have been using lexol for years with no-shiny look results. The trick is to let the conditioner sit for a few minutes and wipe it off with a dry microfiber towel.



So Today, I cleaned the leather with lexol cleaner wipes and following the suggestion from fellow rennlister ADias, I used the Sonus Leather Conditioner (SON-610-8).
I found it better than the lexol conditioner wipes. It was easier to wipe it off and no shiny look at all.

Any reason why you didnt get the PDK clutch oil and the AWD controller oil changed?

The recommended change interval for spark plugs is 4 years. Did you keep going another two years due to your low mileage?

Regards,

CF
