Glad to have joined this group and can't think why I did not do so earlier. I have a 1986 924S which I bought in 1999 from a good friend who was getting on in years, downsizing and finding it heavy to park. I have driven it regularly but rather occasionally (mainly fine days) and kept it in the garage. I had it resprayed two years ago and in October renewed the timing and balance belts (including the alt) and renewed the tension and idler belts, water pump and timing covers. It has some faults: the odometer is stuck on 77682 and I think I need a new speedometer of comparable mileage rather than just a cable. The nearside window motor does not work and neither does the rear wiper motor. Other than that I love it and it seems to get prettier over the years.

Thank you Tim and scm924s. I live near Llantwit Major which is as far south as you can get in Wales, 17 miles south west of Cardiff and only 13 nautical miles from Minehead in Somerset. There was a red 924 in the vicinity but I have not seen it for a year.

Welcome Gareth, I'm just north of Cardiff in Radyr and I have an 'S' too. Maybe we'll be able to make comparisons sometime but yours is much, much tidier than mine!

Yes there are members your way, I have spoken with Tr55vor down south. I'm the complete opposite end of the country! But the roads are nice up here. As they are down south too.
