  1. Hello from Spain

    Hi Nacho - good to hear you're rescuing a 916! It sounds as if you have enough garage entertainment to keep you going for quite some time. All the best, Paul

    A well-balanced stable, sir! I am particularly taken by the DS TTFN, Paul
  3. Hi there

    Ciao Xiqueba (a screen name, I guess?), Mmm I am biased (I have an ex-Dutch TV series V6 TB) ... but both are great. The 3.0V6 does not have the fuss and added complexity (minor in my eyes) of the turbo setup. Drive both ... then decide :-) ... and welcome to the madhouse! The more the merrier!
  4. Hola from Spain!

    Good choice (in my opinion!) - welcome, Dario. I have an ex-Dutch TV series car (a 1999 TB) in Vela Blu. Happy GTVing! Paul

    You are very far from being alone with small yet critical errors like the earthing! So easy to do, so devastating to the mood and humour! I just do not make errors like that when working on someone else's pride and joy. Mine? Oh yes. Never big things, just small and bloody annoying ones. Enjoy the Busso back in action! Paul
  6. 916 Spider in Sussex.....!

    Hold on to your Spider, sir! Clearly a cherished example. Paul

    Second that motion!

    Duly bookmarked :-) ... thank you, sire!

    On the offchance that I run into such woes, would you mind PM'ing me the contact info for your friendly specialist? Specialists obviously also exist here in DE, but I'm happy to use a good crowd wherever they may be! TTFN Paul
  10. Greetings from Johannesburg, South Africa

    Too lazy to find the correct place fo' this warble from me: All I did today was remove a Remus s/steel centre (and only!!) silencer, and it's good friend the Zender quads (sans silencer) from my TB. Replaced that all with an IMASAF TB setup (straight through silencer innamiddle, and a smaller straight through to the now-single tailpipe. Considerably quieter and I actually hear the Busso song better. Like it greatly! So now I'll sell the Remus, the Zender bit, and perhaps the pipe section from the catalyst to the Remus. Must take photos!

    That's the sort of thing that buoys the spirits Good man!

    Yup .. basically I became a little jaded with the attitudes of some in the consulting domain (and to be honest, a little boredom factored into it too). I do keep my hand in, though. Now I play in startup land, and with tech integration and other fun bits. The day is working out ok ... thanks! Great one to you too! Paul
  13. Return to Alfa

    No idea! But I'll look for it and see. Worst case, I need to really spark my Italian from "meh" to "fairly good"
  14. Return to Alfa

    I thought perhaps something like that! It shows in your use of metaphor and colloquialisms (I used to be in ERP (SAP mainly) and management consulting circles until the amusment wore a bit thin for me) Track days where you have vast mismatches in vehicle types and performance really don't do it for me. Never mind the great variance in skill of the "nut behind the wheel" ... Paul
  15. Return to Alfa

    Oh I don't know ... the track is a great learning space too (except perhaps in the middle of a pack of cars!) Dino, please excuse the question, but is your first language German? The standard of your English strikes me as native-speaker or at least very good 2nd language level. Just wondering!
