I cannot believe i'm writing this but i might be looking to sell soon what

I'm not 100% on this, i wanted to keep this as a long term i LOVE this car i have never had a car for more than 2 years if i'm totally honest i don't know if i can bring myself to sell it yet!!, i'v just had a little boy (6 months old now) and found myself not able to use it on days off likr i used to do, of course my days off are with the misses and the boy and my 8yr daughter.. not so much of a problem but he has a pushchair and car seat and with the GT3 seats its impossible, my daughter used to get in the back with the seats forward enough and then slide back so worked a treat. i have spent over £4k in maintaining and improving it over the 2 years its had loads of work done on top of the original upgrades but everything has only covered 4-5k miles so all fresh and that was my main reason for doing all this,

I suppose my reason for this post is to see if i have anyone interested but also to air my thoughts on maybe selling it and how crazy i feel about doing so! genuinely attached to it but not so happy seeing it not get used as it should either,



Dont know

Do you have original seats? If not maybe pick up a set of them and install them in the meantime until such time that you could work with the kids.

I'll be honest Id have same seats in as yours if it were not for the kids but the standard seats are very handy for getting them in and out. Id say do that as it means keeping the car with a compromise.

Definitely keep it unless you really need to free up the money.
Like HSC says, soon enough you'll be taking your son to car shows and things.
He'll love it.
We all remember our parents cars from when we were kids and a 911 is as good as it gets. Thumb

One more thing, even if you buy another in a few years time, you'll probably have to all that work again. Keep the one you've put all the effort into.

Thanks guys for the replies, all for keeping it and wouldn't have expected any less from you lot haha! I'm still fairly new here and feel my 996 ownership has much more to give, be it going to some more shows and meeting some more members, i have thought though if i do sell it i'd have a solid plan to return in a 911 within a year or so, not sure on what variant, i always said i'd keep this one for the boy when he is old enough lol that's if he can get hold of fuel to run it by then with all this electric crap happening puh

I do have the original sport back seats and it did cross my mind to change back and sell the buckets and see how it goes but i can still see me passing up and taking the easy option (misses supports my love for cars but is very touchy at the moment still!) so really going to have a good think on this over xmas,

Cheers again for the feedback guys Thumb
