  1. I expect most of you 981 owners will have seen this in the US. Nothing been mentioned on this side of the pond. Would this not apply to eu market or more importantly UK cars?
  2. Understood, i only wanted the 3.4 also so i get that. There has been quite a few black edition 987.2s for sale over this past year all for around your budget. The problem is the huge increase in used car prices that happened this summer. I'm sure you will still get one but your gonna have to be quick off the blocks.
  3. Id probably also consider a 981 2.7 manual. Some nice examples do scrape under 30k and that's a lot of car for the money Watch the evo magazine test on the 2.7 manual, it's on YouTube or their site. It laps blyton against a 235i for comparison.
  4. Yes i ask for a photo of the service book if they don't offer it up and always ask for the vin. Car-analytics was my most valuable tool in the whole process and saved me buying 2 dubious cars. Its like £7.99 for your first car and 4.99 for everyone after that iirc. You just put the vin number in and it tells you pretty much everything you want to know. Gives you all the dvla history like plate changes, tax, mot, owners, written off or damage, and a mileage. Also you get all the build sheet, where it was built and when, what colour etc. Also all the mot, finance and a whole host of other things. Also the mot mileage stamps which are pretty much as reliable as you can get without a piwis to pull the engine hours from the actual car. It will also red flag 🚩 any issues it doesn't like. For example it flagged the fact the mileage on a car had actually reduced 3000 miles from one mot to another.
  5. I had the money sitting around for almost 9 months and actually put 4 deposits down to hold each car. In that time i carried out all the usual checks, dvla/car-analytics etc and checked with the previous places the car was serviced. All 4 had quite serious issues so it's certainly worth waiting however hard. It's a lot of your hard earned money so is certainly worth the extra caution. The right one will come along and you will know it straight away.
  6. As I've just gone through the whole " finding the right cayman" thing i thought I'd post up. Ashgoods Cridfords Dovehouse Porshacare Harbour cars Rpm Revolution Plus many others are a good start, i checked autotrader and pistonheads everyday. I found many of those cars are already sold and just not removed. The good ones sell extremely quickly so it's worth contacting the specialists personally and asking them to look out for you. I bought mine from Raj at MR sportscars and can't recommend him enough. He is certainly worth a call. I found all main dealers an absolute nightmare to deal with and outright lied to my face on 2 occasions. 1 porsche md said the car has all of my required options and took a deposit, it turned up with none. They then relisted it again with the make-believe option list. 2. Aston martin md taken a cayman as trade. Had buttons for chrono/pse etc but not the actual equipment. 3. Synter. Lovely low mileage cayman with all options. Data check revealed it was clocked. Sytner told me the mot check was wrong. Just my experience from 9 months searching for the right cayman
  7. Watching this with interest as i intend to go on track once the warranty is up. All really good questions especially the pdk parking up.
  8. Crazy small mb limit guys, I've resized this one right down but it's only allowing me 295 mb for another pic.
  9. After many missed chances, mis- advertised, letdowns and complete scams in finally the owner of a beautiful Cayman S. Its a 2014 with 28k miles Its in agate with black full leather, memory 14 ways, bose etc Pse,pasm,chrono, sport design, 20" Really really pleased with it!. Pics to follow.
  10. I'm getting a brand new from porsche pse but the car I'm buying has the shiny sport tips option already fit to the standard non pse exhaust. Now do i need to get them to swap the tips onto the pse or does the pse being very expensive come with these as standard. I'll likely keep the original exhaust so just wanting to know whether the pse comes with sports shiny tips option? Thanks
  11. Ive just put a deposit down on another cayman but the dealer claimed this option which was intriguing. Option 148 power upgrade +10hp. The car has lots of nice other performance options but this is new to me. Any help with this one please?
