  1. I paid £13k for my Gen1 997. No symptoms of bore scoring but who knows what lurks beneath. But, at £13k, if I need a rebuild in a few years time, I will be neither surprised nor disappointed. It’s high mileage - 110k. Some say that, at that mileage, if there was going to be a problem, it would have happened already. With a Gen 1 997, buy them cheap and be prepared to spend or get proof that all is well. Then it’s a good ownership proposition. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  2. Yes - I had heard that MB was better. I’ll go for that one and crack Porsche on my next visit. Many thanks. Sam Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  3. I have a few free hours this afternoon. Cannot decide between Porsche or Mercedes museums. Has anyone done both? Which is best? Thanks. Sam Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    996 or 997?

    I have just paid £14k for an early C2 997. 110,000 miles. Boroscope shows no problems. Hoping for a few years of trouble free motoring but would expect a Hartech rebuild at some point in the future. Not sure if what I’m doing makes any sense but I’m certainly enjoying it. My experience tells me that £18k should get you a sound 997. My experience also tells me that your Father should go for it. Sam Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    Wrapping?!

    Thanks SP. The 997 is blue and think it’s a respray or nothing. But my IN is red, so good info all the same. Many thanks. Sam Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    Wrapping?!

    Thanks everyone. Have decided not to do anything with the paintwork. There is something rather appealing about a well-used, slightly tatty 911. I’ll spend my limited funds on keeping the car mechanically sound and use it a lot without worry! Great advice as ever from fellow IBers. Sam Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  7. I, too, am interested in the fuel tank if, for whatever reason, it doesn’t go to busybee. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  8. Thanks, David. I think I am after an 80L tank - the original size for me ‘84 3.2. Good luck with the sale. Sam Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  9. David - could be interested in the fuel tank. Is 85 litres the standard size? Sam Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  10. Northy - I’ll take that off you. Let me know how much for postage and will donate to the ABF. Sam Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  11. https://www.carandclassic.co.uk/car/C1148196 Am selling my E320 Cabriolet. Link to advertisement above. A fantastic barge which I love, but I have too many cars and something has to go. Do let me know if you’re interested. Many thanks. Sam Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  12. Picked up new Audi today. What a fantastic thing. Love it. In the flesh, v similar colour to my 997, so a pleasant combo! Many thanks for advice. A good outcome from a bad and frightening thing. Sam Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  13. Thanks for comments. It was the interior colour and not black/grey/silver that did it for me. It also has the 245 bhp engine and a big panoramic roof. The blurb says something like £14k of extras...so plenty to go wrong... Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  14. Thanks to all for great advice. Audi 3.0 TDI got the vote. Here’s my new motor... Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  15. As it happens, I started looking at Touaregs this afternoon. Quite like the idea of one of those. Brilliant info from all. V grateful. Sam Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
