Good luck with the sale and well done for going back to NA cars, sound > torque Very Happy

Coincidentally my PB is also 177mph (in Germany too... obviously), just goes to prove you don't need turbos to get there!



Thanks. I'll miss the torque far more than I'll welcome the extra noise. Sad

All water cooled 911s will get to 177 but Turbos do it easily, especially from a rolling 120. At 177 'Red' was still pulling like a train. A memory I'll have for ever but feel no need to repeat. Cloud 9

Really looking forward to seeing your next step on your 911 adventure Terry. Your car is priced very competitively (ahem, a little too competitively for us contemplating a similar move wack ) so shouldn’t hang around long. And as others have said, and the service history clearly shows, it’s a very well cared for example. GLWTS thumbsup



Thanks. Thumb

Have to say I was stunned by how much they still cost?! Confused

GLWS T8

Are you going to be able to cope with less than 400HP?

Wait another 12 months and get into a 991 Turbo.

Life without a woosh will never be the same again. nooo

My daily has only got 385 so I'm quite used to bimbling around.Smile The extra 10 at the weekend will be enough, especially in a smaller, lighter car.

The 991 Turbo has never been on my radar but if it meant I could get one within my £55k budget I'd definitely wait another year to change. Wink

Only from 'the trade'.

I do want to sell the car but fortunately I don't need to - even if the right replacement comes along - so I'm happy to wait for an offer somewhere between 'trade' and 'retail'.

Sadly the market is very slow at the moment but I don't think my asking price is over-the-top.

On the basis that I haven't found anything else under £50k to match this car I have to give fair warning that this may be your last chance to buy it.

Merry Christmas santa

I'm really surprised this hasn't been snapped up.

Looks like a bargain to me. GLWS.

It’s a lovely motor, but two gearbox changes?! Is this normal behaviour for tiptronic units?

The original was showing signs of oil misting around the join with the engine. It wasn't dripping oil but was replaced under warranty.

Pics in this thread -> http://911uk.com/viewtopic.php?t=104133&start=0&postdays=0&postorder=asc&highlight=heavens+warranty

The second one showed similar signs but much sooner , possibly due to the first replacement not being fitted correctly.

If the car wasn't under warranty I wouldn't have bothered getting the first one fixed. I doubt that it would have got much worse but if it had apparently 9e can supply a heavier duty gasket for about £1600.

Apparently it's a known issue, normally at about 8-10 years old and I suspect that many are running around with dirty patches around the engine/gearbox joint.

For the record, the action of the gearbox was never affected and I didn't notice any difference with either replacement.

The bottom line is that the current gearbox has only done 13k miles. thumbsup
