    Farewell 997 tt

    Farewell 997 tt, the umpteenth speed camera on my favourite road has finally pushed me to sell the turbo. Great car and even better since I fitted the cargraphic sports exhaust. Any one in the UK who wants a halfprice cgraphic system should let me know as I I have to remove it because the car is going back to the dealer! System is like new!

    Re: Farewell 997 tt

    Dude, buy something that fun to drive at slow speeds too - like a 997s, F430 or Lambo... It'll save your licence!

    Re: Farewell 997 tt

    What about one of those GATSO busters? Isn't that a better option than selling the tt?

    Re: Farewell 997 tt

    Man i understand how you feel, i have had to drive like a pussycat for the past 2 months, and have to go to driver's retraining for a ticket i forgot to contest....at least none of them were at really high speeds (i.e. >90 mph)

    Re: Farewell 997 tt

    Being a former London , NW3, resident, I don't think many here in America realize the incredible ubiquitousness of the UK speed camera regime.
    It would be virtually impossible to enjoy a nice car with big brother watching every move!

    Under the radar

    In your case I would look at a basic Caterham - none of the super hot stuff or you will be back in the same place, or go hotter and get an Atom. A former colleague in UK sold his 996TT and bought a MCS-JCW and claimed he had more fun at lower speeds that got him into a lot less Gatso trouble. You might even consider the new MX5 with folding hardtop. You also have wonderful cars like the Clio 197 or Megane 225 to consider.

    Lots of great choices and ways to have fun. Lucky you!

    Ditto here in Aussie land... cameras around every second corner

    Re: Farewell 997 tt

    Well that's no fun. Not being familiar with them herer in the US, are there any ways to thwarth or negate their ability to nail you with them?

    Catdog,

    I'm going to help you out of your predicament. You get to drive a 2001 Boxster S for the next 2 months, while I baby your C2s
