I'd been scouring AT, PH, Carandclassic etc etc for months, then a really bad ad popped up on AT late on a Sunday night, by Tuesday I'd travelled 350 miles and bought the car.

Just keep your eyes peeled, if you've been watching the ads for a while you'll soon get familiar with those cars that have been around for a while.

Arranged to see a 2002 996tt in seal grey 6MT. 71K miles, next Monday.

"The car comes with the Aero kit fitted from factory. It obviously has a few stone chips but minimal for its age.It has just recently had a new set of Michelin pilots fitted and Ive had it professionally polished just a few months ago.I have replaced all the radiators on the front including air con rads recently. Its also had Bilstein coil-overs as the original ones were shot. These cars also suffer with second gear problems however this car has had a gear box rebuild to rectify this and also had a new clutch fitted at the same time."

Wish me luck...

Aim for at least £600 off to get the correct aerokit front splitter bought and fitted Thumb

I think it might be a standard one, but yes it should look like the one in your photo. I agree on the wheels as well, but for me that is personal taste. The splitter is either practicality or being a cheapskate.

Went to see the car this morning.

A few things noted, MOT runs out soon and will need a service in April. Passenger window doesn't drop on door opening properly. Previous owner swapped aero front lip for standard turbo lip, still has original and is willing to part with it.

Came to an agreeable price to both parties to take account of above, deposit paid.

Take ownership next week :->

Yes I think he just went through a phase with the car that it needed work too regularly and I discussed it with him - he part ex'd it to an OPC for Cayman
