So i have to much down time at work when the weather is bad!!!!!

i have been loving my rs replica during the summer, but I'm beginning to ponder if a newer 997 turbo or 4s might be a better everyday car for the whole year????? its my only car.

geeeees I'm posting out of some hope of a slap in the face or sanity check???

current car....... I Absolutely love it, but, oh you all know what its like, bloody piston heads!!!!!! frustrated

wack

Why not get a cheapo 4WD car or somesuch for winter use and keep the 3.2. Probably be better off financially in the long run than owning a newer car which may/may not have more depreciating to do, and the 3.2 is going up...

I think you will kick yourself repeatedly and vigorously for swapping air for water cooling. I love my 997 4S, but I often find myself in iPhoto looking at photo's of my old '78 SC with a stupid grin on my face...

This was her from a few years ago... look at it. Perfect.

Agreed, get a cheap runaround and garage it over the winter. That's a beauty.

I actually had a lump in my throat on the day I px'd my '88 3.2 for an at the time new E36 BMW M3 for the same reason of day-to-day usability. Sheer madness. Not helped by the dealer then parking it behind a wall, where I could see it peeking over when I went back a day later, almost looking at me like a scolded puppy Sad

If you're wondering which daily car to buy, then buy a R53 Mini Cooper S. I have one as my daily and it's loads of fun. Fast and great in the corners. Enough power that you won't miss the Porka too much. And you can pick them up for a couple of grand now.

Thanks folks, its the sort of talking too i need!!!

maybe a small hatch for winter is a good idea, i absolutely love the rs replica, its a 3.0 by the way, but still these thoughts.

it does need to stay.

Yeah I'm just about to wrap up my second three month trip to Germany in my Mini. Hasn't missed a beat. We should start a Mini thread! Very Happy

Mine's a keeper Laughing

But of interest, tell us more about the car! Is it 230 bhp like the original or is it 180 bhp same as when it was an SC? Question

so it was originally the 180bhp model, it has the SSI exhaust upgrade and thats about it engine wise.

The car has Metal arches added about 10 years ago. in my owner ship i have added new Bilstein sport dampers all round, new bushes, turbo track rods and new engine gearbox mounts.

RS interior.

its a great looking and driving car, its feels very light and agile.
