For sure it’s a step up. You can tell that just by sitting in it. Definitely feels bigger. Not sure that’s a good thing though. It definitely feels good steering wise and the brakes are stronger/smoother. Initial signs are good. Need more seat time though Thumb


I'll be keeping your old car ready for a swop back if you can't get on with the new one ... money my way of course Wink


Ha, think I’ll manage H! I’ll miss that bad boy though Thumb

Looks stunning. Enjoy it. Love the colour. One of the nicest colours I think. I’ve gone from Lapis blue to basalt black & the rest of the family still aren’t happy.
Still getting used to my (new to me) 997.1 turbo. Just want to get out on the roads a bit more but the weather has been pants. That said I do just tend to go out whatever. Just fed up washing it so frequently. Who knows what’s getting caked on underneath!

OP, that is one hell of a good looking motor.

So much more handsome than the new model that replaces it.

Thank you!

I was just about to pull the trigger on another motor.... Then I spotted it. Slept on it and called Portland's the following morning asking them to switch my deposit to it. It was a bit of a stretch financially but I had to have it Smile
