Good news, Chris!

I've gone down the back of the sofa and I've managed to find £1.57 in loose change!

How does that sound to take it off your hands?

Congratulations Chris. As mentioned, it's now worthless so you may as well drive the next 100k as if you stole it. Thumb

Chris,

My pal's 964 has recently gone over 250k and the only thing that broke was his Odometer, so he's probably done 260K by now but can't tell, your's is just a baby Thumb

This made me curious! Very Happy
A quick search of Autotrader and there is ONE Ferrari with over 100,000 miles:
A Yellow 1998 F355 GTS manual with 151,000 miles on the clock - and receipts that add up to an eye-watering £80,000
£45,000 to you, sir.

As a comparison - there are 247 Porsche for sale with +100k miles -
68 911
64 Boxsters
77 Cayennes

The highest priced Porsche with +100k is a 1997 993 Carrera S with 103,000 miles on it for £57,995

So there you go Thumb

In a slightly perverse way, I'm looking forward to when mine has passed 100k, so I can stop worrying about the mileage and just enjoy the thing. Very Happy

Having a really high mileage 911 is really cool as the car has some stories to tell and proves it has been used as intended not led a sad life tucked away in a garage and not used.

2002 Porsche 996 Turbo

We seem to have an issue in the UK with the 100k thing.
I had horrendous issues trying to sell my Turbo with 97k on.
God knows why it was a proper sorted car and drove better than some of the low mile 911's ive owned.
As soon as they hit 100k nobody wants them.
