Hi Milsy71 and welcome!

Where are you? There is a healthy and friendly group of 911UK ers here in the north east. We also enjoy a warm relationship with PGBOC, many of us members there too.

Great amount of knowledge over a wide range of Porsche cars within our NE circle and more so on this forum.

If a cab is heard of that may be coming up for sale, will let you know. What's your budget?

Cheers, Keith.

Hi Millsy Welcome

Just picked up my second 4s cab about two hours ago so might I say nice choice. See if you can get yourself in an S otherwise you might end up wanting to upgrade before you know it!

Looking around the 26k mark so yes it’ll be an early one.

Welcome to the forum. I thought it was only M3 owners who called their cars verts.

That one was Tiptronic - is that what you are after? You may miss the manual box coming from an 80's Audi?

Seems good. No guide price available so difficult to judge.

BTW, it isn't an S.

If you're not already aware, some people list the Tiptronic as a Tiptronic S which is correct as all watercooled 911 Tips have the Tip S gearbox BUT it doesn't make the car an 'S'. You need the 3.8 engine for that.

Looks great mate. Are you originally from Killy? I grew up in Westmoor, went to George Stephenson (hence my appauling grammar) although now live in Whickham.
