Thanks, I spent 7 hour's cleaning the outside and 2 on the interior. Yes sports seat embossed on the headrests, is that common?

Bought my 1999 2.5 for sub-£3K. Great little car. It had 100,000 on the clock when I bought it last summer, I have added about 4,000 since then including a couple of track days. The car is in great condition with FSH. Before I bought it the car had work done on the suspension, new brakes etc. I have just replaced the passenger window regulator (genuine Porsche item bought new for £100 off eBay!), water pump (Pierburg), thermostat, V-belt and coolant. I think I was lucky to get a car in such good condition so cheap - I bought in in August so I guess everyone was on holiday at the time. For the money I couldn't be happier. Bargain of the century.

Picked this up at the weekend for £2k. 3.2s manual. 117k miles and MOT for 5 months.

Problems i've noticed with it so far:

-crunch when going into second when the box is cold. Fine once warmed up.

- Radio and heater panel not getting power

- 1x sidelight not getting power and fogs aren't working

-Airbag light on

-Check engine light on. Codes are apparently to do with Lambda sensors, although both showing says to me there's a problem further upstream, so i'm going to clean MAF sensor and check for air leaks at the weekend.

-Steering wheel is wonky, but drives straight. Annoying more than anything.

 

Everything else works as it should and it pulls bloody well.

Overall, bargain of the century, i'm super happy.

Those wheels suit it so well - definitely be swapping mine for some after seeing that! (if you fancy a set of my wheels, let me know!)

I think it's just the photo chap, ground was particularly uneven. (:

Ah wheels with a black centre. I have these wheels on a black car, they are currently silver but I've been toying with the idea of refurbing them (there is a thread somewhere) but though I thought about black centres and silver rims had never seen any like it. I am convinced now. 

By the way don't worry about the 2nd gear thing, they all do that to a greater or lesser extent!

I must check the bezel on mine next time I'm under it, keep forgetting. Has the fluid been changed in the Tiptronic box? I think that's a service item at about 90k, although I have heard some saying not to bother if it's still changing well.

Where you based matey? I could be persuaded by a swap with cash either way depending on condition/tyres.

I bought mine in February of last year for £3.5 k. 2.7 manual from a private owner who had spent lots on her. It's been a great little car. I have however spent in the region of 2k in that time on tyres, New rear screen, water pump and upgrades but no regrets. I'm going to list it for sale soon as I've decided to take the plunge and get either a Cayman or 911. Hope I don't live to regret it!

Meet “Trigger’s Broom”

she came in at the £3500 mark as a swapper. I took an instant shine, so naturally she started  to let me down. I think she’s up to the intended abuse now, but if to read members rides, you’ll know she has been “difficult” but, feint heart never won fair maiden, so I have kept loving her. She is a little screamer!

The Boxster I had last year was a 2.7 on 174k and that was £3400.

Couldn't believe this one. Was just in Porsche Glasgow getting a 2nd key. Also gave me the 5 digit private plate as he couldn't be arsed taking it off.
