Why all the anger and aggression? We should be celebrating the appreciation of these great cars. We all know they are special, that's why we bought them. It looks like a really nice example in a great colour combination to me. I really like the timeless beauty of classic grey and I think it goes particularly well with all the blue exterior colours and provides some nice contrasts. Grey is in fashion in the building industry at present, just look at how many houses are going up with grey doors and window frames. Read what Stephen Bayley the aesthete says about the importance of greys in design.
Lets not turn 911Uk in to yet another social media outlet for people to vent negativity. When I first joined in 2010 there were loads of great positive posts by established members with lots of knowledge and experience and technical understanding to share and an appreciation of people's different tastes. Suspension looks a bit low though. (Oh no it's affecting me too now)

They've had the Iris Blue one for well over a year now, and the Speed Yellow one for nearly two.

Their business model seems to be "slap a stupid sticker price on it, and some mug will come along eventually"...


That's where the smoke and mirrors comes from. Car up for sale, disappears, people think it's sold and then it resurfaces at another/sale dealer Grin

Exactly that. They seem to carry a similar reputation to a dealer in London that has W, M and H in their business name. I'll let you figure out who.

Yes sir!

£80k.

I think even Zingari needs to recalibrate his valueometer.

Yep. Not negativity towards the car although I don't care for the interior personally. I'm not seeing grey making a massive comeback on car interiors even if it is very popular down the B&Q paint aisle. I too have a grey front door!

As an aside this forum is still massively helpful and very free from bile compared to almost all others out there. There is however a common thread in pointing out what some of the worst dealer culprits are trying to do with pricing. HWM, Hexagon et al.

This was just a simple competition to see how the "Scottish Hexagon" would try and price the car!

Wow that is interesting. Pretty sensible price

I guess that's a factor of it not selling at Kenny Dunn for 6 months and the owner wanting rid. Trying to a different market as BR West of Scotland based

Hand Actually I over-egged it as I thought they'd go for 85 large Rolling Eyes

So it's 80 bags, they'll probably take a 75 lump and they probably bought it in at c65 which is where the seller was at and where I said it will do its dough Thumb

Plus they ain't sold it yet so perhaps we should now plan on a date of sale Grin

As a Christmas treat I'll have to work up what the Illuminati Fantasy Garage would look like Floor

Its the first time Zingari has got a valuation nearly right in 5 years. Its ironic that when he does he has “over egged it” Floor

It can sit in "unsold 993 corner" with their other 2 Floor

Bless him. He wasn’t far out though. Easy when you value every car at the bid less £5k.
