Went ahead with the first car I looked at a month ago, I kept coming back to it and managed to get it for a really good price.

Black, PASM, PCM3, PSE, memory seats, BOSE, red seat belts, embossed seats, full leather, chrono plus, PDK, full OPC history, 7 months OPC warranty remaining, 2010 with 46k miles.

Purchased new child seats today and await new reg plates and then a full paint correction and detail.

Already been stopped twice in 24 hours to comment on how nice the car is and one person asked if I was selling 15 mins after I picked it up! Didn’t even entertain the idea after all this searching!

Welcome to the 997 chapter!

Looks like you decided to go for the C2S... good choice!

However, as hinted by James - Useless

not 100% on the wheels, quite happy with them at the moment.

i am looking at paint correction at the moment because although the previous owner looked after it there are a lot of swirls and general imperfections. i have been quoted £850 for a full 4 day paint correct and ceramic quote. once it looks tip top i can consider the wheels but think they will stay

Nice one.

Wheels would look much better in silver IMHO, black on black not for me.

And nice number plate too, squint a bit and it almost reads Sexy!

Funnily enough I was thinking about suggesting something nice and bright, like the orange wheels on a black GT3.

Go for it, be different!

Fantastic car, mine is the same spec yours. See if you can source some turbo alloys that will finish it off nicely ( no doubt everyone will have an opinion on their preference)

Now your next dilemma is deciding what mods you need..
