New nuts and gaskets for 924 :hope: But i must say they did add quite some parts for the 944 and 928, even some new body panels.

They have been saying that for decades, it's b*ll*cks

I've often wondered how they justify this claim. At best it must include many assumptions and approximations!

A FOI request could be submitted to JLR to ask how they know, I suppose

It would be interesting to know how Porsche would respond to a similar request

If anyone was inclined to export to excel and analyse, go to howmanyleft.com and pull all the Porsche (or indeed the LR) data of registered v taxed over the decades. If its not taxed its 'not on the road'. I would suspect it closer to 50% than 70%.

One useful part is the elusive throttle cable retaining clip to the throttle lever.

yes i noted that Stan, also for all na and turbo owners they have reproduced the holders for the clips that retain the HT leads part number 046905477 and 047905477 they produced the plastic clips a while back and they are still available.
also the cover for the rear wiper arm retaining nut has been reproduced (I have managed to break 2 of these) 477955415.
Still waiting for interior mats to fit the 924 and crank sensor for series 2 turbo :roll:

Hadn't spotted that, I need one of the HT lead plastic clips.
