Hi all,

Looking to spend about 15-17k in March on a 964...yipee my first Porsche!

Here are my questions...

Targa or full drop top?

Buy privately or through a dealer?

Any good dealers in the Midlands...I live nr. Kidderminster (someone has to)

I shall have more q's as I go, but any thoughts on these would be appreciated.



Nick

Nick

fewer dealers in the midlands offer 964's but there still are good stocks available.....

garages include, Shirley's which IIRC is near Meriden/Coventry, even 911virgin have a reasonable selection, but most of the best cars are available privately.. but a PPI is a must for any of these cars...

as these are 15 year old cars, you are unlikely to have any warranty cover from any dealer..

as for Targa or droptop, you need to try both to see !

Quick replies...I like that thanks. Laughing

Fair comment re drop top v targa. Someone will havbe to let me drive them before I know.

I'm no expert you see, and so buying privately brings up a few issues. How do other buyers go about it and ensure they're not getting a raw deal?

Many thanks.

Nick

Without upsetting Admin - Peter Morgans paperback buyers guides are a bargain as well - less than a tenner and very useful.

Peter Morgan even has a new 964 book...

http://www.911uk.com/books.asp

in the amazon link at the bottom on the link that opens up, put in Porsche buyers guide and you'll get straight to the discount price of his latest 964 guide on Amazon

Excellent. Many thanks all!

I guess most Porsche's are held by people that cherish them anyway, though I realise this is no guarantee.

Will follow the links. Much appreciated!

Merry Christmas.
