Folks...

Just looking at the moment and I really like this car...

The ad states "UK supplied" C16 car and is being sold in Northern Ireland?

Does anyone know the car and have any advice about buying a car in NI?

Please see below: -

Yes, low miles and new ceramic discs?

I thought ceramics were good for 100k??

Only on the road on track they fail much quicker. Silly as it sounds 39 k isn’t low on a GT3 many lower shame as they were meant to be driven.

It's a UK car from Tonbridge originally and c16 car.
Buy it drive it to the ferry, and then home. Or go to Holyhead and have a few days in the welsh mountains and evo triangle.
The NI buyer prob did the same..bought in UK and took over there.

NI is part of UK so no tad implications or import duties to worry about.

2006 Porsche 997 Turbo

PostPosted: Mon Jan 15, 2018 4:30 pm    Post subject: Reply with quote

I bought My car 997 turbo from Hollybrook.
They were very helpful with the sale.
No different from buying in the Uk, just different MOT certificate.

The car has been fine but only done 1k miles in it.

2007 Porsche 997 Carrera 4S

PostPosted: Mon Jan 15, 2018 5:02 pm    Post subject: Reply with quote

Can't speak about the value of the car - I'll let the GT3 guys guide you as far as that goes and I can't say much about Hollybrook either but, they have always had premium cars for sale and I haven't heard any horror stories at home.

My advice would be to speak to them and ask them to agree to a PPI by either the OPC (in Belfast and about 30 minutes from them) or by an Indie (I recommend George McMillan who is in Antrim and about 20 minutes away). If you're splashing out £80k then you want someone from Porsche side telling you it's a good'un I'd suggest? Dont know

Good luck. thumbsup

Very likely. But a quick heads up. This car appeared briefly in the PH classifieds in Oct, Nov or Dec. It's price began with a 6 IIRC (and I'm pretty sure of that because I was sorely tempted even though the 997 GT3 isn't really my cup of tea) alas it was on PH for no more than 3-4 days then disappeared.

It was a private sale, has a lovely provenance with JZM (who fitted the hugely impressive Alcon/Surface Transforms discs to it) and looked to have been genuinely cherished by the previous owner,

Hollybrook look to have changed the wheel colour but little else I suspect. For their "troubles" they look to be making a margin in excess of £10k, something a potential purchaser may want to factor in to their negotiations ...

At least Dick Turpin had the decency to wear a mask when he robbed people.

PS For the record I was going to wrap it in 3M 1080 Gloss Intense Blue



And fit a set of E88's :



or 19" Cup centrelocks off Gert :

But for f*cks sake, don't let me be giving anyone ideas .....

Looks a nice car. I think the price is fair. Get it checked out by OPC or independent, and I your happy, buy it and enjoy it. They are fabulous cars I have enjoyed mine for 5 1/2 years.

Pretty sure that Hollybrook use my indie George McMillan who FRZ911 referred to for their servicing/prep. They used to use a trade friend of mine for their ICE/trim work and he thought they were straight enough with no issues.
