I'm in the market for a 996TT.

I'm checking 911uk.com of course
autotrader.co.uk
ebay (ugh)
pistonheads.com

The specialists seem to have a very elevated view on the value of their cars - any that don't price a boggo 996T with 80k miles at 40k+?

Many thanks

Talk to some specialists and discuss their stock or ask them to notify you if something in your budget is coming in. I'd suggest as a starter:
911Virgin
JZM
Northway
Chappell Cars
Paragon

Lots of others also - look at the sponsors on this site.

Solid suggestion - buying a 'cheap' one from a non-specialist could mean big bills!

out of curiosity what value are you expecting for a 'boggo' 996T with 80k miles from a trader?

One of Cheshire 911's friends has a 2003 turbo done 36,000 miles that he'd like to sell.
worth dropping him a PM

I found mine via Pistonheads, but I searched the above sites you mentioned and on here.

Maybe put a post on the Wanted section and see if you could get one off a fellow enthusiast?

9e have one for sale.

Buying from them you know you'll get a properly inspected car that they'll stand behind.

Apollo,
good find. Thanks for that.
I'm torn between buying privately and from an established outfit like 9e. The price delta isn't that much, may prove a better risk than winging it.

Pleasure mate, I bought my car from 9e back in June 2015 and have had not a single issue. They check those cars over thoroughly before selling them so unless you are getting a good deal on the PVT sale I would call them up and at least have a chat. I think Ken is away this week but Adam is there thumbsup

I've seen a couple between low 30 and 35K gbp.

There's an X50 tip for 35k, 108k miles in Chichester.
A couple of rough ones below 30k, but I'd wager they'd cost a lot more once they've been fixed...

Try Porschemode in North London.

I bought my car from them and they were great - there are others on here who bought from them, too, who have had good dealings

I agree with the above. That looks to be a nice one and you will not go wrong with 9e!

Do you have any spec in mind? Colour, manual / tip....

Regarding the above mentioned car sales emporium. I already seen evidence of ebay shilling of said cars. A red 996tt with GT2RS intercoolers and big injectors (not the orange red one) had been on a popular auction site and hasn't met the required price and magically relisted due to time wasters. It's been relisted 3 times ISTR. Lot's of time wasters on said auction site.

That sort of behaviour just gives people the wrong impression and the example I've seen of poor customer service just reinforces that.

Do you remember who the previous owner was ?
would be interesting to see work out what sort of mark up is applied.
