Hi All,

So I'm totally new to the forum and to Porsche. So yesterday while on annual leave I drove up to Coventry to look at an 06 Cayman S ins silver. It only took 10 mines to decide to put the deposit down after having a good look around and a test drive. Its been serviced by Tonbridge Porsche by its previous owner and the dealer's had is serviced by a Porsche specialist. Also quite niely spec'd with extended leather, PCM2.1, Bose speakers, multi function steering wheel, full electric seats, litronic headlights, 19 inch Sport Design alloy wheels and PVTS.

Matt

Hi Keith, yes JRM indeed. Seems to be a pretty good dealer, definitely knows his stuff. Itching now to get the money through and get the car on my driveway.

Nothing overly exciting past cars wise

Peugeot 309
Rover Metro GTI
Vectra GSI
Megan Coupe 2.0
Volvo C70 T5
Volvo C30 T5
Land Rover Defender 90
Land Rover Defender 110
BMW 320 M Sport
Mercedes A Class

Quite a few "different" vehicles, I must have liked flat 5 turbo's at one stage
