Just traded in my 997 C4S for a 991 C4GTS Smile


Sorry for the crappy photo, but the weather has been poor since I took this one and I haven't had chance to take any better ones. Rolling Eyes

The original idea was to upgrade at the end of the 3 yr finance deal for the 997 but with the high residuals of the 991 at the time the numbers just did not work, no matter how I configured my man maths.

18 months on......

I recently started playing around with a PCP calculator (for the wife's next car) and I had a look for myself at the same time.

So I saw Wilmslow had a couple in, so I popped in to ask about the numbers...... they offered reasonable trade in for mine but the deal clincher was the 6.8% finance....saving a packet in interest and only £60 a month more than I used to pay for the 997 Surprised

I post some impressions later as I am being run ragged at work at the moment.

I've sat in your car, before it was your car. Saw it there and it looked lovely. Wilmslow offered some strong money on my car, so had a nosey around the GT3'S they have.
They must get sick of changing the price on them at the moment with the way the prices are going.
You've got a lovely car in that GTS. Congrats
