Congratulations, it looks great thumbsup

It took me almost a year and many miles to find mine, mine's a C2S but it could be your twin!

Thanks everyone Smile

Part of what makes the ownership experience so special is a forum like this one. And that I've been able to enjoy it even before purchase.

Although I'd definitely be up for joining that cobalt blue convoy Phil. Let me know about the next one Smile

Those spheres were a temporary installation at the observatory at Herstmonceux. It was a one off as part of the 'Sky Arts Landscape Artist of the Year' show that will be broadcast in October.

I just so happened to be shooting my own film at the same time about a BMW R90S: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7d46ti4Qj18

I've always loved the BMW R series of bikes, especially the R90S, it's the boxer twin that does it for me.

That's a charming little film of yours congrats thumbsup

I have my own BMW R albeit a more modern R1200R LC, I absolutely love it.

Glad you finally found a good one! Now it's time to enjoy it! It looks like a really clean example and I'm glad you've had it thoroughly checked out.

Can i just say .. Gratz to Jackzi on a long search that finally got there Very Happy



As for 911 Virgin i'm well impressed .. i've seen the car .. the warranty and how they handled the odd problem after purchase .

Rare for me to recommend a Car sales garage but i am now .

If your in the market then this is one place to have a look at first .

Tom .. a first for me to recommend a salesman .. Thumb top notch is all i can say .

I speak from a long history of working for second hand car garages as well .

Congratulations on your stunning car.

I'm collecting my first 911 from 911Virgin on Friday!

I had a Boxster about 15 years ago and always promised myself a 911 before I was forty but 3 boys, a house move and renovation and I'm finally ready (now 45). I contemplated selling my daily driver and pushing the budget for a 991 but in the end I've put a deposit on a 997 Carrera S as a 3rd car.

I've read great reviews about 911Virgin and so far I've been very impressed.

4 sleeps to go!

Appreciate you taking the time to say that and the respect is mutual. The knowledge and objective advice you share with members of the forum is both generous and kind. I often read your posts and think, yep, he's right ! Keep up the good work Sir !!

Thanks everyone Very Happy

Especially deMort and Tom. We finally got there!

Now I'm off on a roadtrip to Europe for a week. Can't wait Thumb

Tunnel's booked to Calais but that's about it. After that I'll just head south and see what happens.

Any tips for southwest France?

Do your best to get to Collioure , next stop is Spain but well worth the trek back .
Just enjoy the whole Languedoc area , though you picked a hot time to go Surprised
Ive been in Normandy the last 2 weeks & its been high 20s , low 40s seems ridiculous Confused
Don't forget the pics
