After a good few months of looking and much research I found a Porsche 997.1 C4s ticking the "essential" boxes...Black,manual,C4S,PSE and sports seats...
Its got a few more miles than I would of liked but it was well looked after and had a full service history

I thought I recognised the car park! Decent chaps at Zuffenhaus, got my car serviced there and look forward to them continuing to look after mine for years to come. They definitely err on the side of using and enjoying rather than polishing and worrying about residuals! Hopefully you didn’t have too many concerns about this particular car?

Are you based in the Midlands?

Congratulations on finding your perfect car!

How long you had it? Surely a visit to the dealer is in order?

Almost certainly a sensor, in my experience. Way too many of them in modern cars.
Great looking car!

The EML is usually emmisions related, I get it occasionally on my Boxster due to a lazy Lambda sensor on warmup.

I would recommend everyone has an ELM 327 bluetooth OBD dongle in their toolkit and the free Torque app on their phone, for less than £5 you can save yourself a heart attack and days of stress worrying about something silly.
Read the codes out and reset the EML if it`s nothing serious Thumb

The best <£5 I have ever spent on Ebay Grin
