Hi gents, I’ve just put a deposit down on this rather good looking gen2 Carrera at JZM. Taking a gander on Thursday and the ducks are lined up for a purchase. Looks terrific and I’m hoping JZM live up to the hype with their prep (and warranty if required in the future).

Now I know JZM are really good boys and I’m hoping others on here have had a good experience in past dealings. Would be fab to get your thoughts. PM if needs be.

Also, does anyone know this particular car? I’d love to get a bit of owner background if poss i.e. type of useage, favourite tipple etc Wink

Got mine from JZM also and they've been great to deal with, also having my servicing done with them.

Have followed this particular car with interest and have been amazed it's taken this long for it to find an owner, looks a cracking spec and great value - congrats on your purchase!

These cars deserve to be out there being enjoyed, I love their showroom don't get me wrong (lots to gawp at) but it does make me a little sad to think of it as a museum with barely used, investment-type machines.

Hope to see it out and about one day!

I bought mine from them 3 yrs ago and got them to throw in major 60k service inc plugs.

They wouldn’t budge on price at all.

Prep was spot on Thumb

Great colour combo, low miles and the best wheels IMHO!

I would suspect that the relatively low spec in terms of 'options' on the car has lengthen'd the sales cycle.

Sunroof is not a common option on the Gen 2. I prefer without, which made it easier.

Great colour combo thumbsup

It’s the same as my Turbo (Atlas/Sea Blue). Works really well.

I know Chris , the sunroof is a love it or hate it thing , I just think its heavy in the wrong place for a sports car , have often wondered why guys want just a hole in the roof and dont go all the way and get a cab though .we have A/c so there must be another good reason for just a hole as they are popular I just havent sussed it yet Grin Grin

I bought my manual C2S from JZM last December. Prep was great, only took the ‘standard’ warranty. Needed a new fuel pump 10 months later, 95% of which was covered by the warranty with no quibbles. Would definitely buy from them again.

Lovely car, looks like it's been well looked after too!

I have a sunroof, would not have chosen it myself but I sort of forget its there as never use it, plus makes too much noise when open! As Phil says, aircon keeps the car coo Thumb

Thank for the replies chaps. I’m glad it gets the seal of approval; I haven’t seen the car in the metal so to speak. I remedy that on Thursday so, providing it is as clean as I hope, I’ll likely sign on the dotted line.

I like the look of Atlas Grey. I actually hope it’s as blue as it looks in the images but we’ll see. Prob the interior lighting making it pop more than usual. I must admit to not being a fan of a sunroof too. Ruins the roof for me but understand it’s useful. I never used mine in the 993 (which, incidentally, I sold a few months back. I must update my signature!).

The manual transmission is important to me because, well it’s obvious! It also seems to suit this particular 997 i.e. low spec, narrowbody C2. Just seems a driver focused build. And god knows it’s going to do some miles- 10-15k per year is likely.

If the deal can be done I’ll keep you gents posted. I’ll do a write up if it all goes ahead.

I’m a big fan of rear wiper delete too, clean curves.

Sports seats are nicer than the comfort ‘tombstones’ which may affect resale. PSE would be nice, but that’s an easy fix, plenty of aftermarket options.

Mine is also atlas grey. It really depends on the lighting, some days it looks dark blue, sometimes dark grey. I find photos inside/in a garage it looks more blue. Outside in the early morning sun it looks more grey.

Either way, a great choice and looks a lovely example. thumbsup
