    Re: I've joined the family

    stom m3,
    car looks awesome. you may want to swap the amber side lites for clear ones. crg

    Re: I've joined the family

    Enjoy!

    Re: I've joined the family

    very nice car;) looks great

    Re: I've joined the family

    Looks like a great deal at the price.

    Can't get over how "cheap" the 997 is compared to UK prices.

    Re: I've joined the family

    Congratulations! I hope to join the 'family' later this year too.

    Re: I've joined the family

    congrats, love the leather dash!

    Re: I've joined the family

    Yellow seatbelts look great, especially seeing the PCCB!

    Re: I've joined the family

    Niiiiice. Good find. It's got all you'd want too. Too bad about the seat belts. Like wearing white tennis shoes with a tuxedo. "Yeah, I see 'em..., but what's the point?"

    Re: I've joined the family

    Thanks all.

    So now with a whopping 25 miles under my belt one of the things that is drastically different from my '96M3 is the sensation of speed. Doing 75 in the 997S is like doing 50 in my M3. I guess if I had to use a word to descirbe the feeling, I would have to say effortless. Love the car.

    Re: I've joined the family

    Nice car and welcome

    By the way, I really like those yellow PCCB

    I thought leather dash was standard.

    Re: I've joined the family

    Congrats. You got an awesome car there.
    Best of all it is pre-broken in.

    Great car brother, congrats.! What was the MSRP? (Too lazy to use the car configurator). And, if you don't mind me asking, what was your cost?

    I think it is standard in UK - i.e. all cars come with full leather. Same with tinted windscreen.

    Re: I've joined the family

    This is correct. However, in most countries, the full leather interior is an option.
    Since Porsche UK is massively overcharging vs other European importers (even in RHD spec), throwing in a couple indispensable options was the very least they could do.

    Re: I've joined the family

    Welcome and enjoy

    Re: I've joined the family

    The leather dash is a $3400 option here in the states. The previous owner also put a light tint to the car. I like that he didn't go too dark. It seems to match the car well.

    Re: I've joined the family

    Devo - The sticker on the car was $107500. I got it for $94000 plus I paid $1600 for the CPO. OTD was $103100.

    Thanks, CPO ?/OTD -tax?

    Re: I've joined the family

    Devo - CPO is Certified Pre-Owned. It basically gives me a 6yr/100,000 warranty as opposed to the 4yr/50,000. I plan on keeping the car for a while and felt more comfortable with an extended warranty. The 997S will be my daily drive.
    The 103 is out the door. Tax here is 7.75% Just trying to keep uncle sam happy.

    Re: I've joined the family

    Great spec there. It was impossible to find a used car in the UK with a spec like that as I would of bought it. All I could find was very basic models or some outlandish spec selections that didn't make sence!

    I really wish I'd gone for Guards Red seat belts now.

    Once again good choice, it looks mint.

    Re: I've joined the family

    Nice find and welcome to the group.

    Two things that are odd on the first pic... What's the reservoir at the back of the center console? My 06 SCab doesn't have it. Nor do I have the seat release on the inside of the drivers seat. Only the other three.
