Sold my 3.2C back in 2005 and via an Exige, Evora, original Clio Trophy, GT86 and a recent failed attempt to buy an A110 I've ended up going for a lovely 997.2 C2S which I picked up today Smile

Thanks all.

I have to assume the car would feel like a Rolls Royce back to back with my old 3.2C. But it does definitely remind me of it. Heavy controls and a bit clunky and sulky at low speed. Good ride and handling once moving. Lovely engine out behind. Smooth, good mid range and throttle response, and lots more waiting at top end. Feels old in a good way - going fast feels fast which I find isn't the case in a lot of modern cars.

The car is white with cocoa leather and dark grey sport design wheels. Pdk, sports chrono, paddles, pse, rear parking and bose. Missing that I'm bothered by are cruise control (going to retro fit) and the sports adaptive seats (although they are heated which I wanted). Had PPI and bore scope done which was all clear for scoring but did note a little coating wear on 4-6 which at 43k miles I was advised is normal.

Overall very happy so far!
