my new 930 for y'all to check out!

After a long journey from the UK to Australia......its finally here. Dropped the RuF rims on today and washed. Have not driven it really as I need to register it yet, probably wont get round to that for a few months. Also have a Aerocharger variable vane turbo and Andial IC to fit later, that will be fun!

Its a mint example with all books and records from new in 1988, completely stock.

Completely stock??? Huh! The steering wheel is not in the stock location. How could you have missed that?

Otherwise, a beautiful specimen! How in the hell do you have the patience to wait several months for registration before driving her? Damn, I would have her out the first dark night on a back road.

Please post back later when you've got her all sorted out. I'm really interested to hear how the Aerovane turbo works out for you. I don't know of anyone on this forum that has tried it yet.

LoL... yeah, in Aus factory RHD cars are more sought after over converted LHD japanese or american delivered. Just have to make sure RHD uk cars are not full of rot! I was lucky, this one is a corker.

The wait will be painful....I can see a few late night blasts in my future Work and other commitments are pressing at the moment. Also, the frigging government will take its pound of flesh when I do register it (tax!) so need to look after a few other things before facing that bill.

Many thanks and looking forward to learning a lot off you all. One question I have, my front RuF 17x8 wheels rub on full lock, I have 235/45/17s on bolted straight on, no spacers. Is that normal? got a feeling I should have gone with 40 series.

I have the same set up on the front tires and my front tires do that as well. I do not know if it is normal, it should probably not rub. I will probably go with 225s in the future.

Sweet 930!

looks sweet. seeing spring is right around the corner down under, you should be able to get some nice long drives to break her in.

nice 930... and judging by the license plate you'll have to convert to the corn juice
