Dear all,

Just want an opinion regarding swapping my low mileage 981 Cayman S (loaded with extras) 2015 to a Gen 2 4S 2010/11 with Aerokit and very low miles?(3 owners) full history etc.

Would it be stupid move ?

Would the Aerokit be a nuisance with the front splitter scraping everywhere as was the case with my old Gen 1?

Price drop is my worry as it will do about 10 K per annum.

Is the tax in the very high bracket? De Mort has given some valuable points and thanks to him.

Thanks in advance

Kind regards

Just do it and worry about it later Grin

Splitter will always catch everything with our roads Rolling Eyes

You can always go back if it doesn't work out for you Thumb

do it, I went from a 981 to a c4 gts, and the difference was marked.
To me mainly to to extra power, PASM, and the 4WD.
