Not the best poet I'm aware!

On the off chance again as this 4s is going through BCA late Jan in Leeds, down as multi coloured so could be interesting but more likely just lazy.

MOT history doesn't read as a much loved car tbf.

First post newbie!

This car just popped up on my search for a 997.2.

Now for sale @Cridfords

https://www.cridfords.co.uk/inventory/used_cars/201160-porsche-911-997-38-carrera-4s-coupe-pdk/

Does anyone have any experience of Cridfords and any views on the car/price etc?

Thanks

Great colour externally, but it banish it from inside the car. Seems like a decent spec. Anyone know what the hammer price was on it out of curiosity?

Been in business for 30yrs is a good sign(!) and pretty active in my area - they sponsored the Shere Hill Climb last year. They look after my car, had a service and some maintenance done also did a look over it before I bought it. They know their stuff, very friendly and helpful, always busy and have a very interesting selection of old and new cars in for service/work whenever I pop by.
Re. sales, the second owner bought my car from them so they were helpful with giving me the low down on it. I did go a few times to look at a couple of cars but they didn't tick the boxes I wanted - but they always have a good rotation of stock through the doors and I've only ever seen one tatty looking car on the forecourt (old old old boxster)

Riviera is a unicorn colour , very rare and desirable, good spec car and about the right money for a 50k mile gen2 4S from a dealer IMO . Thumb

Put the wheels to silver and remove the decal and that will look nice to me, I don't like the colour vents in the bumper either.

I like the whole car, wheels, coloured front vents, painted interior, simply Gorgeous and rare, but I would say that Cool and as Phil says quite a good price with reasonable miles, it's a Thumb from me.

Only know Cridfords from reputation (good) but love the look of the Rivera 4S with its side decals and black wheels and badges, interior body coloured console tunnel nice too, something different. As said, great spec, and fair price for the miles. Looks like it needs a new rear Carrera badge though, the tip of the C is missing?

Had a look at it before prep today. Nice car.

Guys at Cridfords were great and let me have a look whilst it was being checked through.

Thumb it’s got some spec on it to about £98k original I think. Only thing I would have changed is the wheel. It has Heated multi-function steering wheel but no paddles. Lots of other bits were well specced.

They know what it needs and fair enough said it will be sorted in prep. It looks a good used car once sorted.

I wann’t sure but it turns out they bought my zenith 996 off me way back in 2004. They moved site a few years back which threw me.

They were giggling through the window when I turned up in another Riv blue 4S... Couldn’t have a pic with it and RivBlu next to each other cos it was up on the lift. But gave me a fun afternoon instead of swearing at the broadband switchover that has stopped everything in the house communicating with anything else PC

So the general consensus is it’s a good un then Very Happy

This will teach me for looking as I’m not really in a position to buy until later in the year.

Will have to see if the man maths can figure it out as I’m aware it’s “Unicorn” spec!!

Man maths matey they make anything possible.

It’s the colour that focuses the attention on the car. Rare colour and 4S are always a great mix👍

It is a used car with 54k miles, inspection and scoping advised. I am not an expert in inspecting them by any stretch and I didn’t drive it. ... on viewing it needs the same things a lot of cars this age do. Brakes, belts, nearly due a service, drivers seat leather needs a bit of TLC but nowt major. On the service I would look to have that done at an opc for the stamp.
