  1. Thanks GlosRich, I live in Loughborough in Leicestershire, are there any Porsche specialists local to me that you are aware of or would recommend? I don’t mind traveling for the right car. I went through the service history but didn't think to have a good look at the V5 apart from the number of owners, so not sure if Thruxton was on there. I’m not in any tremendous rush so can afford to wait for the right one to come along. Thanks again for the info Karl
  2. Thanks for all the input, Took the test drive today, it drove great and everything felt very tight, no knocks or rattles. The SH was good with six stamps in the book from Porsche Portsmouth and receipts for the last service when the air oil separator was replaced along with spark plugs. Now the crap bits. Despite being advertised as immaculate by the seller there were many cosmetic niggles, really annoying. Wheel nuts were all rusty and the centre badges were in poor shape, there was paint bubbling on the front spoiler and a s**t ton of stone chips. Both fog light casi
  3. Thanks Tozerman, just sent Cavendish a message re PPI. Sagitta are a fleet management co and they do vehicle sourcing, as well as selling some high end motors. I’ll be cautious, thanks for your input. 👍
  4. Thanks once more zcacogp The car is in Derby, is there any company you'd recommend for the inspection? Or just find someone local? Really appreciating your input, K
  5. Great advice Zcacogp, thank you. Just heard back from the dealer and he’s swapped the steering wheel back to the Porsche one, and is going to give me the Momo as well. It it will be my daily drive so good news on the 17s Its just had its MOT today and passed with no advisories, last service it had a new air oil separator, and the service before that it had new spark plugs and belt. The SH looks good with the right intervals and the last four services were done at Porsche in Portsmouth From the pics the discs and calipers look clean, no rust.
  6. Thanks zcacogp, I’ll have a ponder on those points I’ve seen the same wheels on a couple of other 2.9s, they’re 18s so probably a little more forgiving? Im going to really drill down into the SH after I take the test drive tomorrow, it seems like good value to me but I’m new to Cayman ownership so any help here is greatly appreciated. Saw the Momo and aware that it doesn’t have an airbag, and I’m not too fussed over the options. I would’ve liked the sport and sports plus buttons (is the sport plus mainly for track days?) but I’m not sure if that was ever a
  7. Here’s a link to the ad, thanks again for any feedback. https://www.autotrader.co.uk/car-details/202010265438779?onesearchad=New&onesearchad=Nearly New&onesearchad=Used&advertising-location=at_cars&postcode=le77st&radius=1500&model=CAYMAN&make=PORSCHE&sort=distance&page=2
  8. Hi All, I’m new to the forum and have a test drive booked for Friday in a gen2 2.9, it’s at 93000 miles but has full Porsche service history and Sagitta Automotive has a good rep. It’s at 14k and they’ve agreed to px my car. I’m struggling to get a clear idea of the value comparing Autotrader and eBay sales, prices seem to range all over the place and not necessarily to do with specs. It’s a manual btw, I have tried the 3.4 PDK but it seemed to have a little lag before the acceleration kicked in. I have a checklist of all the usual stuff to look for but wondered if anyone knew the car? It’s WU
