Picked the 911 up this morning and after accelerating out of a couple of roundabouts all those thoughts disappeared, the steering and the feeling of it are amazing , it also wsng too shabby on the motorway .
I’m not missing the s5 at all .


Seriously - I've done 50k miles in mine now. Used as my daily, used as my holiday transfer to the South of France at least once a year.....every year, my work horse, my pub taxi, the lot. Where I go, it goes.......far better than I do.

I've never driven a car that makes you feel so in touch with the tarmac and crosses continents like you've not even got out of bed.

Good move my friend, good move.

Bet the drive home was EPIC and you're still buzzin. You need a couple of beers to bring you down.

Sweet dreams and post some pics tomoz!! Cloud 9


Wot 'e said.

Had mine 4 years now - done 40k miles and absolutely love my P&J as much as the day I bought her.

Ah brings back memories, I sold an S4 avant to get my first 911. That was then sold, got a boxster later on then crashed that and back in a 996.

Ironically I just bought a 2010 S4 avant to compliment the 996, lol. The more you drive the 996 the better it gets.

I really am beginning to love it , just back in from a drive , getting used to the clutch and gear change now ,everything was flowing nicely. Roads were very wet however treating it with a bit of respect . No point in writing it off in the first week !😂
There’s a couple of things I will need to do , passenger window is rattling a bit , will have to get that looked at and I will have to upgrade the stereo to a Bluetooth one , will have to be in keeping with the dash , I don’t want any flashing disco lights .
I let the mrs have a go in it , I was sh*ting myself , do t think I will be doing that again 😏

It only gets better over time. Like I said, I've owned mine for 5 years at the end of the month and I still get excited about driving it to work everyday.

Great choice Brucey! Thumb

Way more involving than an Audi saloon! But they both have their uses.

Do you mind me asking how much you paid? I'm just curious as to where the market is currently.
I may be putting mine up by spring time and it's of very similar age and mileage, although I've spent over £15k on mine since buying it for £13k 3 years ago. Grin

The market is dead due to Brexit, but I think I have an itch for something else, either this year or next.


Sir!, Sir! Marky used the 'B' word, sir!!

Priceless, Osh!!


OP, welcome to the 996 club. Those early cars are getting better looking with age, enjoy thumbsup
