2003 Porsche 996 Turbo

PostPosted: Fri Sep 24, 2010 10:05 am    Post subject: Warning...Specialist Cars of Malton....... Reply with quote

.........Sell Cars, !!!!

All I did was call in for a cup of coffee, one of their famous Bacon Butties, and to look at their showroom

And I bought a car !!!!!

996 turbo, Amazon Green, or it might be Amazon Blue, it's hard to tell, but what a test drive !!!!!!

I think mine is different to a lot of 996 turbos on here, mine is just a 996 Turbo, not a tt as some seem to designate their cars, (yes, this is me being a pompous tw@t), Smile

Thanks also to Jamie at Eurolease, all financed with two emails and about 30 minutes of my time, who could ask for more !!!

Now, how long will I keep my clean licence for I wonder Question

No more yellow peril?

Just straight blue/green peril!

Congrats, safe drive home.

No, the yellow peril is going,

I will openly admit that at this moment in time I think the SY cabrio sitting in my garage is a better looking car,

But, sheesh, the Turbo test drive made me swear really bad words, and this was just in the first 4.2 secs !!! (think about it) lol

This will be the first 911 coupe I've owned, my 964 was a cabrio as well, but the new one does have a sunroof for the odd sunny day !!

Roll on next week.

Pat!!! You said you were going to the Lake District. Epic Fail!
and to think I nearly swung by Malton yesterday.

I expect a drive by on your way home...

CONGRATS and well done to Jamie from Eurolease. thumbsup

Congratulations!!! Green 911s are just so cool.

I bet your SY cab and your 996T(T) look great next to each other?

Having a cab and a coupe at the same time would be my ideal......

I thought that was why you chopped the top off your 993 coupe?

Did you work out a way of using the spare roof panel as a hard-top?

Can you not use aero grade pop-studs to secure? Can't remember what they're called. I am sure someone from the flying fraternity might be along soon to help.

Welcome to the tt club Thumb


Unfortunately, yes, but it's no reflection on your car, which is ' considerably improved' compared to the standard version I'm getting,

The other thing of course, is as you're getting older and more senile, you'll probably;

A: Forget that you said you'd sell the car
and
B: Forget who's on the list anyway Confused

cheers

Congrats Pat Thumb Now you go steady on that A64 won't you. Plod likes hiding and eating roadside fry-ups all day along that road and they like a bit of Pork for afters...

I like that colour thumbsup

Mine's having new brakes all-round today and a few other bits and bobs ready for a run down to Bavaria next week Very Happy Very Happy Very Happy

Nice one Pete, looks good that turbo, quite an unusual colour (for a 996 turbo). Thumb

I go to Malton for my servicing, always enjoy looking at some of the vintage Pork they have in the showroom although I daren't drive any of them for the reason you have just found out...!!!!! Grin

You're lucky it worked out positively for you. Unfortunately my experience was far less positive. You can read about it by following the link below, but I would urge anyone considering doing business with John Hawkins and/or Specialist Cars of Malton to proceed with grave suspicion and great care and definitely get your solicitor involved before you do anything.

Thanks. I was quite aware of that when I posted.

This thread is one that might show up if someone is trying to research the reputation of Specialist Cars of Malton and I feel that any such person would do well to be armed with up to date information.
