I think those are the worst wheels I've seen on a turbo.

I must say having just come back to this thread, it does make me feel all warm inside having a Black on Black Gen 1 Mezger Manual.

It does look a little under priced given it is being marketed by a dealer, I (personally) don't mind the red... maybe there is something else wrong with it.

Prices are all over the place though, some of the cars at the bottom end of the range seem bargains. There seems to be good stuff sticking at just £mid-50s

That red one. The red looks fine but there seems to be something missing, something around the top of the car, something...

oh, it's the roof, that's it, the roof is missing.

Laughing

I don't much like the wheels either tbh

Boba Fett's on the other hand looks like it's ready to pounce on something and kill it, kill it dead.

I think this is the infamous car discussed here previously that I nearly bought. The sports chrono car without the sport button?

I'd rather not have the roof than not have the car, so I understand thumbsup

Looks like it has a sports button to me. Third button from the left at the bottom, next to the suspension button. That's where mine is, and it appears to say Sport although it's very blurry

I think I live in a parallel universe. I've browsed a few posts on this thread with interest. Having just spent 10 minutes in the boys room I picked up a copy of GT Porsche (September edition) and see that RSJ have 4 gen 1 turbo's for sale priced from £48 to £56k. 3 tip and one manual. They certainly seem plentiful. How come some are £90k? Ultra low mileage?

I think its still about the manual to be honest, the RSJ car is a silver manual with nearly 60k miles, and they are still looking for £57k Thumb
