    Recent Trip to France - Interesting Observations

    Earlier in the week we did a quick trip to Disneyland Paris (2 nights/3 days) As we were having visitors and we were 8 of us we had to take two cars (wife's B180/W246 and my 911/997 C2 ) Driving was nd most cost effective way of going and in terms of time taken was comparable door to door with...

    MAS - Some interesting observations

    My dealer had on his forecourt a Jan 2000 c240, so I took it out for a spin for interest, just to see how it compared to mine. I found it was completely different. The throttle response was way better at low revs, but poor higher up, and the gearchanges were very different. Mine are very...
