    Yep, there's no wash, we need to carry watering cans, although I would spec it again, it's defiantly useful.

    This phone headache will be resolved very soon; I'll post as soon as I hear something more concrete.

    I am with Vodafone at the moment but am a bit fed up that I have to pay Pounds7 a month for an extra sim card. What's more, I lose the GPRS functionality on my phone - not a massive deal I guess - but I've got used to looking up things like news headlines, sport and weather stuff on my Sony Ericsson and I just don't understand why this functionality should be turned off if I have an extra sim.

    By the way, did I read correctly above that the rear wiper hasn't got wash/wipe??? Surely not?!

    Re: Picked up my 997s

    No wash wipe when you order the rear wiper Blimey i was just wondering whether i should have ordered the rear wiper but now i am glad i didnt The rear wiper in the Uk would be useful for getting dust etc off the rear window,aswell as obviously useing it when it rains.I mean i often spray and wipe the front screen ,just to clear the dust and give a nice finish.

    Re: Picked up my 997s

    Coincidentally, I just read the long term test review of the 911 in Evo and they mention how useless the rear wiper was without a wash function - they tried to clean a dirty window and just made it a lot worse. Have to say I'm glad I didn't order one as well now...

    Re: Picked up my 997s

    Here are a couple of pics of my car, you may have already seen them as they were posted last week, but havent had a chance to take any more yet. Too busy driving. 500 miles and counting

    Robbo, I half agree with you, in the first 2 days of my new car ownership it snowed and rained a lot and I used the rear wiper on several occasions, in my mind it was worth having, but that does not dismiss the fact that PO SHOULD have included a wash facility... a bit of a shame really

    Re: Picked up my 997s

    It is a bit poor. I'm sure a wash facility will appear in the future as a cost option....

    Re: Picked up my 997s

    Must admit though Med rear wiper would be handy in the snow/rain,i couldnt see much out the back window the other day when it rained hard, but hopefully the worst of the weather is over soon in the uk.
    Pics please Med its sunny outside

    Congrats to you all. Flash your lights if you should pass me in London town.. I've hit 3.5k since October and I swear, every drive just gets better..




    I do have to say that this is the best combination for a 997S, Our seal grey is ok, but makes the car a bit "serious"(don't know if you understand)...

    The basalt with those rims= the best combination for the S
