    Help ! - buying Used 996

    Hello all !

    Just about to realise a childhood dream and do the deed ! Am about to buy a used 996 C2 and wanted to get some advice

    it is a 2001, 28,000km, grey, fully equipped (including sun roof, GPS and phone),

    We agreed on Euro 54,000


    1) what do you guys/girls think of the price?
    2) what should I be looking for and what questions should I be asking (new brakes, new tyres, etc)
    3) How hard do you think the value will be hit by the arrival of the new 997

    Any other thoughts welcome !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Re: Help ! - buying Used 996

    Hi there - Welcome on Rennteam.
    My raw reply would be to say that you're facing a bargain which you should jump on. Price and mileage seem very low but I don't know the UK market.

    The best advice to make sure that your childhood dream does not become a nightmare is to do business only with official Porsche dealers or recognized independent Porsche specialists. There are plenty of 996's on sale, you're in a buyer's market! :t

    Good luck and keep us posted!

    Re: Help ! - buying Used 996

    I would have it checked for any signs of Rear Main Seal leak or check the service record to see if it has been fixed already since it is fairly common in C2/C4/C4S's, if it was fixed, find out if the crankshaft bore was concentric because otherwise it will need a new engine.

    EDIT: ...and Welcome to the forum!
