Hey Sundeep,

Was out for a jog this morning and went past Riche in Pinner, had a look in and they still have a Mk2 GT3CS that I test drove for a friend six months ago, its was 56,000 and is now 52,000, its not a bad motor!

Perfect for your trackday obsessions!

They also have two 03 plate 996 Turbo S's in at 52k!

No doubt about that, I would love a turbo. For general day-to-day and holidays in Europe it would be fantastic, but I might end up going for something a bit more track orientated. Won't be selling mine until march/april 2008 though - so plenty of time to tink about it!

yeah know what you mean, when my mate asked me to look at it, I was talking about it being a CS and they argued with me for about 30 minutes saying it was a standard car, they knew nothing about LWF etc. Funny now that their advert mentions CS, they can't spell Zenon's either.

They have only really been selling Pork for about 12 months, prior to that it was mainly Mercs and BM's, they also tried to tell me that their warranty ans servicing would be better than OPC?!!

They are only 5 mins from my house so if you ever want me to scope a car out let me know.

I reckon if you can get the Silver CS off them for close to 50k that would be a bargain, its got a full cage, nomex's, fire ext, Corsa's and standard steel discs (replace with Alcons), two harness's and only 11000 miles. IIRC its a sale or return car, but maybe they now bought it coz its been on thoer forecourt for 6 months, surely they will want to get rid of it, its not exactly everyones cup of tea!

although it has been surprising how the market has changed for gt3's in the last month...

there was a yellow gt3 at GT Classics, last month up at 57.995 now down to 52.995.. and even all the 4 opc gt3's that I was tracking have been dropped by 3-4k over the last month !

only a few weeks ago there were 5 speed yelloe mk2's on the mkt !

see ! the effect I have on buying !

997 GT3 is out soon, everyone who is trading up will be looking to sell earlier so that they don't get hit depreciation wise, but if everyone does the same thing, supply and demand, basic economics.

Sensible thing to do would be to wait 18 months then trade up to a used 997GT3, but if money is no object?

but then I'll be waiting for ever

sensible thing was to wait till circa early spring 07 when the 1st crop of 997's had hit... but 6 months ia a long time !! and there is the winter effect when all these cars get tucked away...

however there is an opp' to buy....

anyway buying and worrying about values is not my thing, buy to drive..... live to track !

we always want the next best thing, when in reality is it any better?

take me for example, I love my GT3 but.....

Do I love it twice as much as my old 993 which was well sorted as you know!

No I don't!

Do I miss the aircooled flat six howl with RSR's...YES
Do I miss its lovely curves.... YES

Would I miss my GT3's engine howl at 5000rpm+... YES
Would I miss its amazing handling.... YES

Do I regret trading up...... in my heart and soul NO
In my financial mind..... MAYBE

The trade up didn't really hurt me at all, in fact I could easily trade up to a new 997GT3RS, but 85-90k on a car is stupid, unless of course you don't mind losing 20k for the kudos of owning a new GT3 until of course its not new anymore!

At some point you need to financially plan (pensions etc) rather than living the never never.

BTW, I am an IFA for a Bank! So that explains some of the last bit!

Get an early Mk1 GT3, at least you can then tell yourself its a classic, eh Adrien!

very true, its not just the car but the leap financially which has implications way beyond the sticker price which is very un-nerving....

did think about a mk1, but after the beauty of a 993, that wasn't going to happen !

but I know what the logically decision is, but i've now reached the crossroads, where I know I face up to 6k deprecition in the next 6 months but the decision is to go for it ! there will never be a better time !

2000 Porsche 996 GT3 Mk1

PostPosted: Wed Oct 04, 2006 1:14 am    Post subject: Reply with quote

Hey Poon, just got back from the 'Ring and saw this thread. Mk1s rock! Especially when Manthey'd Twisted Wink

Boggo Mk2s will continue to fall in value as they are squeezed by the more desirable GT3RS and the exclusivity of the Mk1.

If it's any consolation to you Sundeep, I honestly believe that Manthey'd cars will hold steady and may start to appreciate when people realise:
a) how rare they are in the UK
b) how much better they are than the standard variants
c) how much it costs (ease and ) to Manthey

Regarding the Mk2 CS, are you sure it has a LWF? IIRC, the Mk1 Comfort vs CS had different flywheels, but the standard vs CS Mk2 had the same flywheels.

Saw an GT3 RS at OPC Cardiff a few weeks ago, an immac low miles example, for 60k... nice car for someone, and if you can afford 52k, surely you can stretch to 60k Smile

Re the Turbo S, it is true they were 2005 cars IIRC. However, you could spec up a Turbo S spec car, i.e. PCCB and X450 (?) engine pack on a standard car at any time.

Quite correct OC - only Mk1 CS had single mass flywheel. Mk2 CS and Comfort both dual mass, and if i'm not mistaken the GT3 RS had single mass.

I'm eagerly awaiting the arrival of my Mk1 CS and was wondering how much Mantheying you've got?
