Hi, I'm considering buying a 996 C2 auto 2000 (X plate) but the milage of 87K is putting me off. Should I be concerned or not. What's a high milage for a 911?


Asking price is 35K which looks good to me


Any advice would be very welcome.

You can get a low mileage 996 for £35k....so I would pass. Plus its a tip. You may want that though?!

87k on a 996....


The car should do the mileage just fine. But as cars head over the 100k mark so the price takes a good leap down.(on newer things - not classics). I agree with the above comment, you can definitely buy a nice 40k 996 (tip or manual) for £35000. So it will be from 98, so what, put a plate on it. :wink:
The drive is much the same, but resale will be much easier when the time comes.


The price of the one you mentioned is fair, simply that I would advise going older and lower miles.

£35,000 for an 87,000 mileage 996, those were the days!! Thank god there still NOT the days, since I would not be able to afford one!

35k is too steep in todays market. Why not spend an extra 2-k and get a 997? :food:

Ermmm... Look at the date on the original post :hand:




(and you can get a 997 for a lot less than £37k by the way) :wink:
