Bought this unseen on eBay to sort it and use this summer



165000 miles and it shows. What a shed.

Pretty much the most important thing really, the other bits are very much "here or there"

Some interesting wiring going on there - looks like someone has been chasing a fair few issues.

Removing the handsfree kit will improve the acceleration.

In fairness the steering wheel covering and gear stick gaiter look to be good, and the dash hasn't split so interior visuals should be pretty easy to improve. A lot of VW Golf 1/2 items in a 924 (see other project threads on here) so always check for compatible parts before paying for the 'Porsche' version from parts places.

Keep a spare DME relay in the glovebox, 90% of starting issues are down to the DME; even though the listing suggest bad fuel may be at play

Latest version susposedly a lot more reliable https://www.frazerpart.com/acatalog/...SABEgLZGfD_BwE

Worth a lot more in parts than what you paid for it !

Hi Arvi,

There is a guy in Kineton who comes recommended. I need to pop over and see him sometime.

Cheers Matt. I was thinking about getting a quote from PL Car Bodies. They did a spot on match on my last car, although they do come at a premium price. Spa Motors also seem to have a good rep. They quoted around £280 last year for the bumper. Got some strange reaction on one of the doors so need to get an updated quote. Let me know if you see the Kineton guy. Think I'll wait until March/April unless someone does a winter special offer.

Is that Carmetics? Funny enough my MOT tester recommended him on Saturday as I need some curb damage taking off my front bumper (too much low)
