    Told already it's such a shame you passed Brugge and didn't visit us (only 20' away!)
    Never ever pass through Belgium without having delicious meal in one of our belgian restaurants!
    And when you want to have your hair done... pass here, i'll give you an aerodynamic porsche-cut!!

    here



    Beltar, sorry we missed you as unfortunately Dreamcar had time restrictions

    I adore Bruges and really enjoy the traditional Japanese food at Tanuki

    As far as a haircut goes, I am somewhat follicely challenged and believe my barber charges me more of a search fee

    Your 997S Cabrio would do the remaining job though I am sure

    Hope to meet up in the future....

    For all the "Terracrappa" jokes that have been made, and members of the board you can't even come close to imagining how many that is and not just by me , it really was a wonderful weekend. And much as it pains me to say it, the car really is beautiful. I'll deny this if anyone ever tries to use it against me. The pictures truly only tell part of the story and I'm just grateful to have been fortunate enough to have been part of it. Truly a memorable weekend.

    All that said I formally wish to start a petition to change Kinrara's name to "Tcrappa."

    All in favor say "Aye."

    Aren't I just the little sh#t disturber. There's that Yank in me again.



    A 'FINAL' BIG BIG THANK YOU TO DREAMCAR FOR ALL HIS EFFORTS IN SPENDING MY MONEY AND MAKING THIS ENTIRE PORSCHE JOURNEY THE BEST EVER, MR AND MRS PORSCHE-JECK WHO WERE BOTH THE PERFECT HOSTS AND THE FANTASTICALLY ENTERTAINING AND UNEXPECTED COMPANY OF PARALIZER, TOGETHER WITH RENTEAM FOR MAKING THESE ASSOCIATIONS POSSIBLE - A TRULY HEART FELT THANK YOU FROM A NEW PORSCHEAHOLIC - KINRARA

    You are entirely welcome, kinrara, it was a great experience for me also - may you have many safe, thrilling and enjoyable miles in your magnificent new turbo.

    Re: Factory Collection Adventure

    A postscript to this story, a certain new 997 turbo owner was stopped at a service station by the police driving suspiciously - why? driving round and round the car park waiting for the magic number to enable this photo to be taken - 997 miles... Sad or what??

    Re: Factory Collection Adventure

    LOL I remember when I reached 997 miles, I had my camera with me. I just stopped by the side of the road and did the deed

    Did he give you a field sobriety test after you explained why you were doing what you were doing? Although the visual I have on you going round and round is pretty amusing.

    Enjoy the new toy. Don't forget to get that one warranty issue resolved. They still need to get that steering wheel moved to the correct side.

    Smiley Thank you for your kind comments and thanks to Porsche-Jeck it was a "double wammy" fun journey, incorporating the unexpected trip to 'The Ring' Smiley

    I have now covered 1,500 miles and can genuinely say thanks to Dreamcar's additional knowledgeable assistance, that  I cannot reflect of one item where I am thinking to myself " if only I had ordered........."  much to my daily surprise Smiley

    I placed my order through a UK dealer Smiley and frankly they did not deserve the business, proving themselves throughout to be the zenith of unprofessionalism Smiley

    So no second bite of the cherry for them and I will purchase my next vehicle via an authorised Porsche Dealership in Germany Smiley

    Despite my dealership issues the 997 TT itself is 100% + correct and awesome Smiley

    Hi Easy  Smiley I think your '997 miles' photo was a far more sensible approach !! Smiley
