Many thanks for that Rojdog/Bund & T8, I found the bit to disable it, but as I clear out the cookies often I don’t think it will last. Also, apologies to Elan for hijacking your thread.
As I was saying though I also have a C4s/2 and reading some of the replies on this thread I was beginning to wonder if I had made a mistake with the one that I bought.
It is my first 911 that I bought from a OPC (mainly for peace of mind), I know that I paid OTT with the price but I didn’t want to take any chances, but with the replies on this thread with buying and selling and the must haves I was beginning to think that I’m going to struggle to sell mine at a later date.
Why? Because it’s a pdk and “oh no it doesn’t have a PSE” also it’s coming onto 60k miles now.
Then it’s nice to read that other owners have a pdk, but what about the “high mileage”. To some it’s high but to others it’s barely run in. On a positive note, these low mileage cars will be harder to find and more to pay for, so I can relax that there are other people out there that think the same way that I do. Well at least I’m hoping.


Honestly don't worry about it, I just bought a high mileage PDK a few months ago Wink

Enjoy the car and worry about what it will sell for when you actually sell it!

Swampy, I wouldn't really worry about your car as everyone has their preference. Also as others have mentioned there are options to PSE. My B3 Touring has just hit 160k miles, it must be worth nothing Wink

I’ve hit 60k miles, but it is a ten year old car. Can’t say I’m worried.

Last two 911's and the RS4 I've purchased had 60 odd thousand miles, I think its a good area to buy a car as I usually only keep for a short time and end up selling around 70k miles, they're usually at a good price, had work done that may not of cropped up on a lower mileage car.

Though my 560 SEC has done 156k and the landcruiser was on 192k but the engine died a few months ago.

The mileage I'm not worried about at all, I have only been doing around 2k a year as its is, its my weekend toy Very Happy

Its the car that I always wanted and I am still very happy with it, I never bought it as an investment and never considered it as such, so when I sell it it'll get what the going rate is then and that's it.
When I retire in some 3 to 5 years time I then hope to get something that holds its price a bit more, well hopefully... That's if they haven't banned petrol by then anyway Question

Does anyone have any knowledge of this blue C4S please? Looks like a decent car at good price? It has 6 previous owners though.

I'd expect that car to be North of £43k. Seems too cheap. But worth having a strong look at it. If it all checks out with a PPI, then you've nabbed a bargain

As per above, seems too cheap. Should ask if its a CAT D.

It's a very good price for a sensible mileage Gen2 car but I wouldn't say it's too cheap.

The seller is an ordinary car dealer not a Porsche Specialist so maybe they got the car at 'bottom book' and are selling it accordingly. Dont know

6 keepers in 11 years is nothing to worry about.

It could be a real bargain so well worth a look.

Good Luck Thumb

It’s HPI clear but looks like it’s reserved. If that falls through then I will pop in to view the car.

The "996 grey" interior won't be helping its value , i can't imagine many seek it out

That car looks like a bargain to me for a 997.2 4S superb price, main dealer gave me a few grand more than that for my C4 997.2 in part ex back in March this year,
albeit mine was lower miles & manual in white, that cars still an S worth more than they are asking I would have thought Question
