1996 Porsche 993 Carrera 2

I'm completely biased against Paragon anyway- I've been there once and I found it an awful experience. I languished in the sales area for over half an hour before being seen despite having an appointment with a sales guy who possessed no manners or charisma at all.. At some point out of complete boredom I wandered into the service/garage area to see what cars were in only to be curtly told by a mechanic to get out.
I've been to lots of garages such as Dove House where the mechanics are friendly and happy to chat about the cars but at Paragon they just tell you to get out- maybe they thought I'd steal a spanner.
If I hadn't travelled so far to visit I would have told them to F off and left soon after arriving.

£120k

I think £120k is the new base price for WB cars.

I agree Chris. I think the air vents are best kept to the Turbo too plus its not a great colour - only in my opinion mind.

I think black cars look the best and go slightly faster too.

More realistic but why would you spec the body kit and then get comfort seats not hardbacks Dont know Still needs to drop some weight Bandit

I called them about it. It's been serviced at the same OPC by all 5 of its owners - and they have spent ££££ preparing it. I'm sure its lovely too. Price is/was genuine.

Hand Too many owners at that price. Plus can they confirm it has had a service every year?

If they'd had to spend £££ 'preparing' it that suggests it wasn't that good and makes the prospect of buying the 'cheaper' Rolling Eyes 80 bag car and putting your own dough into it a better proposition. what

Price is a piss take for that car. End of Grin

When that car came on the net, i enquired about it.....and the reply was asking for £125k as it was a rare one etc bla bla bla.
I never answered back, but did get a reply a few weeks later saying offers around £100k.
Now its lurking around like a wet fart at £87.5k

I reviewed the seller and could not be arsed putting any interest in it.

Hand Underpriced, my Aunt Fanny Floor

More realistic and again buyers will pay the extra from a reputable dealer. It's several bags short of this as private sale option. Thumb

I'm sure a few years ago that interior would have elicited cries of disgust from this forum. Funny how times change!
