It’s been a few weeks since a GT3 tried to kill me, and I think I might be ready to get back on the horse. Bandit

This has piqued my interest. A good spec and less than 300 miles on the clock. I’m tempted.

Anyone have any experience of dealing with Alexanders?

Now you had a bit of a scare with the other GT3 Graham.......I think you should get someone to go with you and test it first......you know just to make sure it doesn't bite......

Oh... did I mention I was free next Tuesday..... Rolling Eyes

Very Happy I’m far too impulsive to wait until next Tuesday! I think I might head over tomorrow and see what they’ll offer me for the GTS in p/x.

I knew I’d be back for another at some point, but maybe not this quickly. I blame the owner who has had it 16 months and only put 230 miles on it. They knew I wouldn’t be able to resist.

Although it is manual, but now I’ve done 1,000 miles in the Up! I should be ok. I’m not exactly heel and toeing it, but I’m not stalling at roundabouts anymore. Embarassed

What's the back story to the 26 day crayon GT3 Dont know Is that the one you bought from OPC Leeds as I think you were there doing the deal when I was buying my GT4 Question

Alexanders have a good rep if the vbloggers on YT are to be believed albeit their cars can be on the expensive side?

ETA: Surprised Shiote, I've just read your post on the rear axle steering etc nooo

The Alexander’s car looks lovely and they seem to be a proper business, can’t vouch personally as they’re rather high end Wink

RPM have a nice 991.2, not keen on the red trim on the wheels but maybe it’s those rim protectors...

I have a serious problem with impulse control. Luckily I managed to give myself a good talking to this morning, and I’m happy to report I haven’t bought another GT3....yet.

I can’t do red, not where I’m from.

And if it’s got more than 500m on the clock I’m not interested. That’s why the one from Alexanders is tempting, just 230 miles on it. My reckoning is the rear axle steering might last a bit longer the fewer miles it’s done... Question Grin

I can vouch for Alexanders having bought from them previously. They couldn't do enough for me with minor issues I had with my Maserati despite me being 150 + miles away from them.

That Alexander’s car is a lovely spec...pretty similar to my car though in a rather more conservative colour! I love the yellow stitching, really lifts the interior and deletes the seat stripe which is a good thing in my book.
