Christ if I wasn’t in the same position as your Bro, I’d be all over this car! Absolutely love it!

Great reason to let it go, GLWS.

Thanks, It's not going to be easy watching this drive away, I've already got trips planned in the 996 and bugs me that It could be gone sooner rather than later however really pleased to see them casually looking into options moving forward.

Update,

Sad day for me and cars today!, the White 996 has found it's new owner and couldn't have sold it to a nicer guy, Local to me being 20 mins up the road and a member of 911uk too so really pleased, hoping to catch up with Dan when I do replace it and go for a drive out together Thumb

I hope I've got first dibs if it does come back on the market too haha! (please Smile )


Thanks for all the good comments guys and I will be back in a 911 soon I hope, I feel even after a fairly short ownership of this fine example It felt like an extension from my last one, even the guy that came to inspect it for Dan commented on how nice it was,

Cheers

Surprised what

You can console yourself with the knowledge that you are doing a very kind thing for your brother and his family, if I wore a hat I would tip it in respect to you young man Thumb

Don`t be a stranger on here, you`re always welcome in my book Grin

Think I'll be next in line behind you to have it back maybe when/if it comes available again.
Just seen what you have spent, should be well sorted now!!

Good evening all

Really pleased to have got my hands on this lovely 996. Big thanks to Jay for a) letting it go (i know it was painful!) and b) making it a smooth buying/selling process. It’s clearly a car that’s been cherished through its life, amazing history file and money spent in the right areas. My plans are to keep up this maintenance and improve a couple of areas that need some attention, nothing major but things to keep on top of. And above all, drive it as much as possible! Previous to this I owned a 996 C4S, you can really feel the difference between the two cars, the early C2 feeling more sprightly and alive in my opinion which is exactly what I was looking for.

I shall probably start my own thread to document my progress. Watch this space!

Dan

Thanks buddy, Yeah couldn't have asked for a smoother quicker sale really, once decision is made I felt It had to be done! Can't wait to get back into a 911 I'm already missing the thought of driving it,

TV8 Cheers mate, Yeah I get a buzz that the new owner is chuffed with it too,
