Looks like fun getting in and out past that gearknob. puh

Ady that little bike on the right looks mega. Cool

Also, consider yourself lucky you still have something in the garage with an internal combustion engine. Very Happy

I’ve been that bored today I carried out a full refurb on my garden water feature. Grin

Look at this!
Pretty solid residuals too from what I can gather.

Don't know why but these things just do nothing for me. Im all for super saloons and I love an uber estate but if its a special car it has to be a sports car or coupe IMO.

Must admit I agree.

I’d love an estate one for work but a good car as a daily is never a priority. It’s just something else to look after and service properly. Wink

Not special enough for a sunny day toy. nooo

Such a shame. There are good ones out here. A friend of mine who is super picky had one, of course the trade-in price was the same as a standard crapper.

Bloody annoying isn’t it!
I hope you didn’t trail too far?

To be honest I’d have been annoyed at the seller of that 987 Spyder if I wasn’t heading to Oulton for the start of a good weekend.
I hate the old “Ah it’s mint, you’ll love it”, before finding a stone-chipped, corroded wheel average car. frustrated

Hard to know if people are deliberately taking the mickey, or they genuinely don't see stone chips, curbed wheels etc as anything to mention.

I'd describe my 911 as being pretty good, it needs a new windscreen to be good, and a detail to get to very good.

Most of it is down to individual standards, the rest just BS to get you there.

The car was just north of knaresborough,a 240 mile round trip....A good area,or so I thought... as I got nearer to the postcode my heart started to sink...Yup an Aston Martin Vantage for sale in the middle of a council estate...

He also had a Mitusbishi Evo for sale if that completes the picture?

The car had corrosion around the door handles,on the top edge of the door skin and chips and scratches on both front and rear wings.

It had a Larini exhaust which sounded awful and a clutch that needed both feet to push..

He seemed quite an aggressive chap and I was p1ssed off so after a little word with myself I made my excuses and left because to be honest we could of ended up rolling around on his front garden.


I'm not viewing another car until I street view the address first! wack

Yeah that sucks. Good idea with the street view in future.

I hope he had a staffie in the back of the Evo to complete the picture. Grin
