Hello. I've always fancied a 911 but have always made excuses not to buy one. Well, the big C has made my mind up. Having recently undergone a laragectomy l'm on the road to recovery.
So now the search begins. I have a budget of 25k, I would like a relatively low mileage example 50kish or less, C4S 996, grey or blue with a full service history.
To add to the wish list
IMS sorted
Heated / electric seats
Zenons
Crested seats
Sat nav
Air con.
Manual

There are a few on pistoheads and auto trader but as yet nothing has floated my boat.

If anyone knows of a vehicle that may suit would you pm me?

For what it's worth, I would forget about the ancient satnav. Zenons (Litronics) are good, if they were factory fitted, they will have the height adjustment system and washers connected. If they are after-market they almost certainly won't. Not really an issue though. They can be added later at a price...

IMS is a can of worms, there isn't really a solution. Hartech's with the later and larger bearing seems to be as good as it gets. Replacement bearings are a lottery, if it's been done, check the rear seal has been removed.

Were I looking for a 4S now, this would be a serious contender... full engine rebuild, X51 powerkit and a very nice spec from a well respected specialist.

Thanks both. I've made an enquiry on the X51, it seems a bit expensive with 81k on the clock. Is that all down to the engine upgrade?

It's had a very expensive engine rebuild and that's the premium imho .

The X51 upgrade did not give a very big increase in HP from what i remember.

If you are going to continue to look then as i have no one to help atm when looking for cars then i'm happy to give my advise on any adverts you wish an opinion on ..

Just PM me the details and from 7-9pm only i can give advice on whether i feel they are worth looking at or not .

I've done this once or twice shall we say Smile

The X51 pack will make for a premium as it was a very expensive option new, and hence rare.

A full, proper rebuild could fetch a bit more too.

It’s been for sale for a little while though, so you are clearly not alone in your thinking.
