I delayed my service on my 911 so I could secure a Boxster from Wilmslow as they had me down for a C Class (dreary). I did so because I'm considering buying a Boxster for my daily. Not sure if I want to pay the big bucks for a 981 or just get a 987 such as an RS60?

I used to live not far from Frankfurt but am now much further south, roughly in the centre of what I would refer to as the "Lederhosen triangle" (Stuttgart, Munich and Zurich)...

How big is your collection of dodgy chimp photos and videos?

Is there not an offence you are committing by keeping so much material on your hardrive?

I'm off to google Interpol/RSPCA's contact details and advise them of your position (both your geographics and the compromising graphics)

I think I have most occasions covered and if not a quick call can compose the scene I'm after, but ever since the subjugated simians unionised, those pesky German labour-leasing laws have started killing my profits PC - I may have to move the entire operation into Austria where I understand ape-abuse is much better tolerated...

Discounting the obligatory tours of Berlin I've never really ventured into the northern regions of Germany. Hamburg is still very much on my bucket list, as is Rostock - both very nice parts of the world I believe Thumb

I was in Hamburg with the ship for a while and it was nice. We were supposed to be there the entire time but in the end we moved which was a shame. Taking my car with me this time (Mini). Never driven a RHD car in Europe before although I've driven plenty on that side of the road never in a car from the UK.

Driving on the wrong side is never really a problem - car park barriers and toll booths can be mildly frustrating especially if/when it is raining but otherwise you'll hardly notice a difference as you quickly adapt your style and positioning accordingly Thumb

In my experience (with Hatfield) it's on a first come first served basis so you need to book in advance to get the tastier metal. One time they'd managed to book the car for the wrong day so all they had left was shanks' pony frustrated

They quickly ran out of porsche biscuits that day, let me tell you Hand

Hi...


The thing is, if you're not paying directly for the courtesy car costs, then who is paying? I presume it doesn't come out of the dealership profits...

They'll get it back from the price they charge for parts. Somebody also has to pay for the cakes and coffee etc. Dont know

Yeah they do that at Wilmslow, sometimes you get a Porsche if you are lucky. Always got a Porsche at Chester I have to say.

I've been lucky over the last two visits as I've had a Boxster and Pana. This was before Xmas
