Hi all

I sold my 996 C2 a couple of years back. I'm now looking into getting a 997.2

Is there anyone in the west Berks-ish area (Newbury, Basingstoke) who'd be willing to take me out in theirs please?

Cheers
Martin

How about going to a dealer and test driving one? If you are genuinely interested I am sure that will not be a problem Smile

Good idea; I'll see if I can get along to that.

Do you think people would be up for taking me out though?...might be tricky at a show?

Cheers

Yes, will do....I've got a couple of dealers 'on the case' but I thought initially it would be nicer away from the sales environment Smile

It is easy to get in and out at the show , the forum members are a decent bunch but I cant speak for them individually as to whether they would take you for a drive but most can be bribed with coffee and bacon butties Grin Grin Grin

Floor No mate you will be banished to the general car park with all the other nasty front engined cars Grin but you will come in through the main entrance as you will have access to the whole of the site inc the attractions plus the porsches it is a good day out for the whole family as everything that is usually operating on the site is open , you cant miss the porsche area you will see it as soon as you walk in. on the left.

Alright, alright, very funny! Smile

I didn't think I'd park on a Porsche stand Wink

Hence asking if I'd park "near" to the forum area; obviously not though Laughing

I'd thought about meeting at the services beforehand, thinking that might be a good idea before everyone wanders off round the show???

Cheers

Meeting at Rownhams would be a good idea mate as the guys are in a group drinking coffee ,a good chance to wander round and introduce yourself. you might even find the wife driving the BMW and you hitching a lift from Rownhams in someones 911. Grin Grin
