Apologies... no offence intended to owners of personal plates, they just aren't for me but I understand that is an opinion that I should probably keep to myself.

Thanks to all for the genuinely helpful comments and thoughts - they are much appreciated and I hope I haven't annoyed you all!


No need to apologise to me, it's not a plate I'd run either. I think I have already commented on it. In fact I'd find it to be a downside and a huge faff as I'd have to sort a nice new anonymous numberplate from the DVLA and that's the kind of stuff I just don't like to do. It doesn't make me faster or cooler.

I too do not see the point of spending good (mod) money on a registration number which is basically just a legal requirement, or arguing with a policeman about the spacing of the lettering and getting pulled over etc, unless of course it spells something excellent like KNO8 or T1T (in which case I'd keep it).

...the left exhaust is soot black compared to the drivers side one ? I know that bore score isn't meant to be an issue on these but the stark difference ain't right to these eyes?

I'm a novice but one of those pics is of a 58 reg car not an 02 and the picture of the interior seems to have PDK which can't be an 02 car. Am I right?

High miles, cat D, needs to be half retail price. It’s not far off! Little bit cheaper not sure there’s much to lose, seats look well too.

You will find its 20-25% off on average.

Op- looks decent. Definately worth a look.

2011 Porsche Cayman 987

I don’t think I would buy it and then spend money returning it to standard. Plenty choice out there. It would make a great base for a CSR/track/ hot rod project though.

1993 Porsche 964 Anniversary

It's a turd Thumb

Price is too hexy, needs to chop off a few. I'd pay 15 large for it, but then again I tend to be too generous Bandit

Not wanting to get involved in this particular car but I can add that the Gen 2 engines we have stripped have had brilliant internal engine conditions in most areas (especially crankshafts and after over 100K as well).

Apart from those very rare ones that seized - the rest of the engines seem excellent and so high mileage should not be as big and issue as with Gen 1 cars.

However if the bore has scored (unlikely statistically but ref to black tailpipe) it will need rebuilding! Bore can be checked of course.
