Love 993's ... I think it's the perfect 911 ... A wide body and turbo dog leg rims.

964/965 is my fav 911... Followed closely by the 993. Awesome cars, nothing like air cooled!

Hhmm, I may have seen you. Im a pretty big bimmer enthusiast so I always take note of them when I pass by.


After a I knocked out some rust and did a quick touch up with por 15 I put the bumper and winch on today. I haven't sorted out the winch issue though. I bench tested it and it just clicks, I'm going to to test the solenoids tomorrow. If its not that then I'll pull it and check out the motor.

Does anyone know if ARB sells individual parts? The rack is from a land cruiser and I know I can make it work, however I need longer feet. A new fit kit with all of the parts is $300, however I only need 6 pieces from it, not the whole kit.

How about something like this? Also a lot of rack mounts for commercial vans out there for relatively cheap.

Those look awesome, I don't think they are tall enough though. I'll check out the van mounts though.

For the ARB roof rack you need the special clamps. Trust me when that roof rack in on your 110 it looks very cool! The ARB roof rack is my favourite!

You might get lucky when you call ARB direct. I needed a replacement mount for an Ipf light and one guy there had one sitting in a box under his desk! Shipped at no cost!

I called ARB, they were worthless. I explained that I didn't need the full kit, just 6 pieces from it. They said that they wont sell individual parts and that I'm stuck buying a new kit from them at the tune of $300.

I had one. Never owned an e30 m though. I have an e36 m3 right now though. Before I bought the defender I was living on the pelican forums looking for a 964 or an e30 m3.

Email them in Australia factory direct, not the US one. They are very helpful!

It's ok. I had an e46 before I bought this. The e36 is a great blend of the both of them, I've just lost all interest in the e36 though.

They are retreads using the Goodyear mtr tread pattern. I read a ton of great reviews on them so I bit the bullet.
