I'll stick my neck out and say £21k (Convertibles are worth less than the equivalent coupes). However it depends heavily on condition, which you need to be really honest with yourself and others about. Services are great, but are the brake pipes corroded? Is the gearbox totally silent? Has the engine been borescoped recently? Are the manifold bolts a rusty mess? Are the suspension adjusters seized?

If all that stuff is good then it may well be worth more. If it's not then it would be less.

All brake pipes have been replaced back one's only last week when serviced, gear box a dream never been horoscope only thing wrong is slight leak on front damper but unite nineleven John said last week it's no big problem yet, cost me a grand last week for a major service and I supplied all parts and oil, but he replaced other parts

I was thinking more around £23k at a quick guesstimate this morning. Manual C4S cabs aren't easy to come by, especially with sports seats and PSE in the right colour too.

In fact, make that £26k Thumb

£26k ...not a chance!

Two minutes ago on this forum a 2008 997 with a little over 108k miles was valued by members at £15k?

Yeah but it's not a 996 C4S which is quite a sought after future classic.

£18k if it needs stuff, which I know you say it doesn't. Thumb

So in that case £21k-£22k. There's no way you'll get £26k for a private sale this time of year.

Suspension refresh for springs, dampers and any worn arms etc is at least £1500 for basic replacement stuff, if you do it yourself. If not it's way more. People will be accounting for that at 80k, even more so with a leaky damper.

Then you have rads, AOS, waterpump, air con pipes, tyres, brakes including disc and caliper condition, both functionality wise and cosmetically.
Body wise, stonechips, anything like that.

I'm not saying yours needs them but it's what will be on most people's checklists.

Sounds like a lovely car though. I prefer RWD coupe 911s but a 996 C4S with PSE is a nice thing.

Had new disc's and pads all round ,water pump about 1000 miles ago, spent £2000 having bonnet Pu front wings and wheel arches respray , spent at least £10,000 in the 4 years I've had it, the only thing I've not bothered with air con stopped working about 18 month's ago , but it's a convertible so don't need it, all new brake lines power steering pipes the list goes on

I'd be screwed without aircon in my cab. Summer's fine but winter can be horrendous with condensation. Mines on full time over winter.

The only car I have no aircon in is my R107 300SL. I just put the blower on full blast in the winter and it clears the screen.

It isn't that it doesn't work. It doesn't have it. If it didn't work I would fix it..

Surprised

The dry air clears the window much quicker. Aircon (when working) takes all the moisture out of any air coming in the car.

Evening all

Good luck with the re gassing that's what I thought with mine, turns out the rads had started to rot so off to Porsche to buy new rads & my indy to fit, not cheap but the end result was brill. My point not a cheep fix, but another cost to factor in if selling. I also had my C4s valued for insurance purposes so ive a good guide if I choose to sell.
