Hello Everyone,

A new Porsche fanatic here.

I have owned many cars, from sports cars through to tourers. I am sure that they are not as exotic as many here have owned but a short list is below:

2003 MK3 MR2
2009 Mazda RX8 R3 (still owned)
2010 Audi A8 V8 Quattro
2012 Dodge Charger 5.7L Hemi V8
2014 Range Rover Sport 5.0L V8 Supercharged

So, I decided that it was time to have a little fun again. I had been searching online and playing with configurators for a 991.2 for ages. I spotted that Porsche Centre Reading listed one on the used section with no pictures. A quick email and a video arrived in my inbox. Very nice indeed, Agate Grey 4S with lots of goodies. In the meantime, my local dealer in Tonbridge called to advise they had a new C2S in stock, with almost identical spec. Quotes were received and I decided on the C2S, it was much cheaper to finance a new car, residuals obviously.

I took a call from the excellent team at Porsche Reading asking me if I wanted to proceed on the 4s, I declined and advised that I was going to get the C2s. An hour later, Reading were back on the phone with an excellent finance quote.

The deal was struck and I collected the car 3 days later.

I had never even sat in a 911, let alone driven one!

Paperwork was completed and I drove the 120 miles home. The C4S had only done 1500 miles so was barely run in, but my goodness! What a car!

There are some niggles and issues, but Reading have been excellent and they are sending a low loader to collect the car this week to rectify them, its nothing major, rear light bar is not working properly and some rattling issues.

Anyway, pictures below....I LOVE THIS CAR!!











PS, I have managed to touch a speed bump which has meant the lip has come away slightly on the splitter, any idea how this (hopefully) pops back in?[img][/img]

Welcome to 911uk and to Porsche ownership.

991 C4S in Agate Grey = worship

Why not show her off at our Kent Breakfast Meeting on Sunday.

see ==> http://911uk.com/viewtopic.php?t=120885&start=0&postdays=0&postorder=asc&highlight=

ps. Funnily enough I was drooling over the C2S at Tonbridge on my way home from Beaulieu last weekend.

Thanks everyone, its a cliche but the car makes me excited to drive again, I am actually leaving earlier for work and taking the longer route haha!

Reading have just dropped my loan car off, a 66 plate white Panamera 4S, its blinking HUGE!

Ive not driven it yet (apart from parking it) but I am missing the 911 already...!!

I love the adaptive cruise, its much better than the system in the RRS which I traded in, in fact the car is much better, but then its not made for fields/towing so I guess that its to be expected Wink

That lighted centre light strip is so nice at night, and a debadged non base model is quite rare Rolling Eyes
