Hi All,

I have been lurking on here for quite some time ( 4 years ) Grin

About 2 weeks ago I picked up my car from 911Virgin, A lovely GT sliver C4S Cab 997.2. Firstly I must say that the guy's at 911Virgin, Terry & Team is everything that i had read about them on this forum.

The car was presented in stunning condition and had all the options that I had wanted, though I must confess that I originally wanted the multi function steering, but that all changed once I test drove the car with the sports steering wheel. Just go to love those Paddles, I personally didn't think the Paddles would be that good.

Why oh why, did I wait so long to get one, Laughing

Hi sjfpdk,
I was in a pretty similar situation as you (but not lurking for as long), I picked up my first 911 in May, Very happy with it, I had a few teething issues with it at first, glad to say nothing major but all done now Smile
I'll get to post all about it as soon as I get a chance.
Your car looks fab btw, similar to mine but I have a coupe Smile

Swamps Smile

Glad you're happy @sjfpdk !

That car has wanted for nothing, did majority of its miles early, has been under a warranty all its life, has had several 997 mid-life crisis issues fixed already so should be stress free for the foreseeable. I certainly pampered it, including living in a garage with a de-humidifier in the winter.

Enjoy it!

Thanks Guy's

@Alfaian - Agree, the C4S backend is a beautiful thing to look at it's what swayed me over to the Gen 2 997.

@MJA911 - Thanks mate, you sure kept the car in good nick worship I too will be keeping it parked in a garage and will be keeping up the pamering. Just out of interest what were the several issues that got fixed..PM if you have time.

@Phil997 - Yep, it brings a smile every time I drive it, So glad I got a gen 2 997, It took a long four years as I first wanted a Gen 1 then changed my mind.
