I've been thinking about treating myself to a Porsche before my 60th birthday (in March) so I went to have a look at a Boxster at a garage in Norwich yesterday "just out of interest"....... I think you can all probably guess what happened next!
I'll be picking it up on Tuesday 5th November after it's had an MOT and service. The garage have also agreed to complete any work that comes up as advisories on the MOT (knowing my luck, it will pass 1st time without needing any repairs ). They gave me a fair P/X deal on the Beetle, and the Porsche was already very keenly priced thanks to a lack of service history with the car, which I think would put most buyers off. However, condition both inside and out seems really good, all electrics worked fine (including the electric roof), and it drove beautifully on the test drive, so I am happy to take a punt on it.
To say I am excited would be an understatement
I'll write a bit more after I've collected the car and give my first impressions on the two hour drive back home.
Any comments or helpful advice welcome, as always
