Thanks Zingers, I may be a bit biased, but think the 5K premium for a WB is worth it, even if the miles are slightly higher, but still low Very Happy

Not many WB's to chose from at the moment, but not my dough that is being invested, OP should go and see several cars before deciding in my opinion, that is what I did at least Dont know

Well I’m sure loads of you will slate me but done a deal subject to inspection at Hexagon.

I’ve seen all the paperwork. Service stamps. MOT’s from UK and N Ireland and am 100 % mileage is genuine.

I’ve also seen all the internal reports they did when they bought the car and all the work they’ve done right down to changing engine cover strut.

I’m also getting the old cup wheels with the car but personally I love the black wheels it’s got on now.

I personally think the car looks amazing and have seen the Porsche receipt for fitting the Porsche supplied RS body kit which makes me happy it’s all genuine Porsche and not some rubbish aftermarket tat.

I know you may all think mad but none of the standard cars did it for me looks wise

Hexagon were exceptionally helpful and spent hours going through all paperwork, bills etc

I’m very happy.

Thanks for all the input here though I’ve learnt a lot about 993’s

Congrats and fingers crossed the inspection goes well.

Ditch the budget Falken tyres for some quality rubber and i'm sure you have a fun summer of driving ahead. Thumb

Great result!

Nothing to be slated for at all. You’ve seen a car you like and have bought it, ignoring the purists.
You only live once and in 20 years time when these cars are taxed off the road, I bet you’ll feel better for driving the car you wanted to drive, not one that someone else preferred because it had Varioram, wide body or was standard.


I look forward to more pictures. Thumb

Congratulations OP, I'm quite sure that car was local to me. Saw it around a couple of times, a lovely car.

Being happy with the car and the deal chum is all that matters Thumb

Good for you. Jonathan and co. a Hexagon are a nice bunch and the cars are well prepared if a little overpriced. Good for you for getting a deal, car looks great and yes some proper tyres will be a big help!

Just GREAT that you have found a Porsche that ticks your own personal boxes. It has been interesting to follow a bit of your progress while reading the valued input of the knowledgeable folk on this forum. Definitely a Porsche to be proud of and a bit of a rarity for sure. Super colour too. ENJOY Thumb

Thanks for all the lovely comments.

Good to be a member of the Speed Yellow club.

Falken tyres are being taken off and replaced with proper tyres as part of the deal.

Don't get Pirelli P-Zero. They might be 'N' rated but they're shiote and tramline nooo

Don't worry about Z's "sad devotion to that ancient religion". "The old order changeth yielding place to new"... Modders of the world unite, and throw off the shackles of the Illuminati! Thumb

Joking apart, it's a great looking car. You pays your money, you takes your choice!

Enjoy/Welcome!

"These items are used to preserve shoes correctly inside their packaging; they also allow you to remove the shoe from their last well in advance of the necessary time to stabilize adhesives and starches. If these are not dried with last usually the shoe itself will curl up. These products also enables you to preserve the shoe even after several months, being confident that shoes have maintained perfectly"


If this is the joke its even less funny than I had imagined
