Interesting, I was looking at this line of work myself a few years ago. I'm not happy in my current role so may look into this again.

Probably more miles in the summer than the winter too?

I actually expect the average mileage of turbo's to be less so yours is really abnormal Smile
Are you planning on keeping it for the foreseeable future?

Im not sure tbh. Its on 85k miles now. If I keep it another 12 months it will soon be hitting 100k which will scare some buyers and affect the value.

One argument says that if I sell it now, a "normal" owner could probably run it for a couple of years and then sell it on with still well below 100k on it and potentially not loose any money on it.

On the other hand, these cars were made for driving and for someone like myself who wants a turbo to drive, rather than worry about harming the cars value then my car could be appealing.

Ideally I wouldnt mind moving onto a 997.2 turbo pdk, but the cost to move is probably going to be at least 20k, probably more. Whereas I could invest a lot less than that having ES Motors / 9e tweek my car and just keep it.

Decisions!
