out of interest how much did you let the porsche go for?
when mine blew i sold the cup 2's seperate from the car.
i got £1k back two years after buying it for £2k. which i dont think is bad considering it needed anew windscreen, engine! and torque plate thing changing(its an auto only thing, cant remember the right name)

Sorry to hear about the 944 Marky :( I would have been interested in buying it off you if I'd known.

Fine picture of a knackered piston & Con rod though, bet that made a bit of noise when it finally let go :shock:

Car cost me 3k, got 1.5k for it. I think maybe would have got more by breaking it, but i dont have time to do it. Sorry Darren, didnt think mate - just haggled the offer and it went. Probably worth a bit more with the LSD and the cups etc, but hey.

That's a real shame m8 and a 1.5k loss isn't exactly what you need at the moment either :(
