i think Zingaris valuations are only applicable to an air cooled purchase, i'm not sure what an equivalent is valued at in water cooled terms.

As you've got a relationship with Paragon what would they buy it in at as its well known to them. Then look to add a few bags that will bring it under retail but above trade. Don't use the calculations they used for the 993 S as you won't get away with adding 60 bags on the trade in price Hand

Have you got the car advertised MattyR and if so, have you had any interest? I would have expected some at 33 big ones!

Indeed, I have had a few enquiries! No need for an advert apparently! Deposit taken from the first chap who viewed the car. Great guy who is a fellow enthusiast and forum member. I'll leave him to introduce himself.. PPI being done in a couple of weeks due to us both being busy.

It's not a done deal yet as need to do the PPI. But should be fine as I've done all the jobs Precision Porsche identified in undertaking the health check I asked them to do 6 months ago.

Being a higher mileage car the price had to reflect that. Plus I actually want to sell the thing so asked sensible money. I'm not a penny pincher, never have been. For me it's more important deals get buttoned down quickly and the next project is fresh.

Speaking of projects the next one is a period property, probably with a thatched roof, so funds may well be sunk into that. However my dream car has always been a 356 of any description but they are way out of shot for my pockets. I feel bad saying it on a Porsche forum but the Chesil Speedster is lovely..

I'm going to miss the 993 but the time feels right to sell. I can say I've owned an air cooled 911 which is a memory I'll always cherish Thumb

GLWTS Matty.

I too have a soft spot for the Chesil. They make you slow down and enjoy motoring through actually needing to physically drive the car. With the hood down, on a sunny day, it's a great experience.

I've agreed to buy the car, conveniently MattyR was not far from me on a project.

I don't think the car looks any worse than the 64k mile zenith blue 993 2s that I bought off stocksie some years ago and that's now described as mint by PS. I didn't peel back the rubber round the screen but it wasn't showing and the ppi can check condition of chassis legs and everything else, a bit of oxidisation at the top of doors but better than the zenith blue car I bought. The interior is looking good, I told a friend what I was buying and he said the seats must be baggy yet they're not, I think the type of seat looks more dated than the other two types but in good condition for a 150k car. I'm a fan of the green colour and I'll change the wheels at some point to gold centred bbs lm types when a good deal come up(ideally split rim) and I'll add the continental 7412 stereo and likely t lite again.

Either my Turbo or RRS will have to go, ideally the RRS but I'll have to advertise it Smile, my Turbos up for sale but I'm reluctant to reduce it anymore. I've clearly gotten over my mileage fear as I bought a 190k Toyota LJ70 unseen from Ireland a couple of months ago and now this. Due to the mileages it won't stop me jumping in and using them for there intended purposes.

Hopefully ppi is straight forward and done deal.

Cheers, was in fact searching this morning, yes does look great. The sport classic II look good also but not as good.

Then there is this

Job done everyone is happy Thumb

Being realistic results in a very quick sale where the seller has pitched it right for them and the market and the buyer is content with the deal as he ain't going to drop any bags driving off.

Nowt wrong with high milers if they are looked after. Trouble is buyers look at the mileage in the advert and then think
1) it's on it's last legs
2) it'll have the pulling force of a wet fart
3) the seats will have sagged and the leather take on the appearance of an octogenarian's ball sac
4) the gearbox will have more movement than a wizards sleeve, etc what

Enjoy driving it chum. Many more miles ahead Thumb

Cheears ears thumbsup and i agree about that it should have some life in it.

I bought a 192k mile 2.4 1989 Landcruiser that looks to have spent most of its life in Ireland and the last 5 years in a yard, id say working hard by the look of it when it turned up. It still sounds good and goes ok(did have a few oil leaks from running gear) and I'd be shocked if the 2.4 Toyota engine is as good as the Porsche 3.6 so i expect it to go on for a bit........

That Landcruiser has probably been run on agricultural diesel Grin

30 years ago My chum used to work for an Irish builder and filled his company car up from a 'pump' on site. Used to do a 1000 miles a week and Pat always told him it was good stuff "It takes the knockin' out, so it does sir" Whistling

A bit of red has run through its veins Grin I wouldn't be surprised.....actually i wouldn't be surprised if its done 292k, this Irish fella really did see me coming!!! I bought it thinking it would stop me looking for another car and give me a bit of a project..... clearly I was wrong Wink

It's the filtering of the red diesel down through the peat filters that gives it it's fine qualities! thumbsup
