I not the most prolific poster online (more the lurker type Rolling Eyes ) anyway I follow so many great threads and all the great work carried out by so many owners on their cars and due to reading a great thread I found myself in a proper pickle last year! it ended up with me buying some wheels which turned into buying some suspension which turned into buying the whole car! But my man maths calculator is top drawer model and the numbers worked! Floor

So as mentioned previously I had the problem if that is the right way to describe it of owning 2 X 996's. time has marched on and one has gone. But a recent holiday saw me with too much time on my hands, a cold beer and an ipad! (so classifieds scoured, which turned to--- well you know how history repeats itself!!)

The few that know me know that I have a health condition which over time is going to limit mobility, (not dying anytime soon so no flowers please or sympathy as that is between ***** and syphilis in the dictionary!) but what it does make you do is look at everything on a very time based fashion and what can be done or should be done by a certain time! so with all that waffle in mind I have decided to sell the amazing car I bought off Russell (EGTE) last year, it really is a peach as I am sure most regular members already know, I haven't done it justice at all as covered less than a 1000 miles since I bought it last summer. I keep wondering if I am doing the right thing, but I guess only time will tell on that one. But one thing is for sure I feel very lucky to have experienced the car with its superb subtle modifications, a real testament to its former keeper! I guess I just been minding for the next owner thumbsup

Only know you whats best for you, I think many will say enjoy it while you can. It is a really nice car, shame to sell it so soon.

Could you replace it with something as nice that you would use more?

You know my thoughts T.

You’ll be giving up a cracking 996, but...

If you have an itch, scratch it.

Good luck with the sale. Thumb
