Hi guys,
I've just joined this forum,
I'm looking to get a 997 c2s and I need some info on what to look out for.
I will peruse the site whenever I have time but any help I can get now will be much appreciated.
Basically what I want to know is what are the considered 'must have' options.
what problems are common to these cars,
what to look out for when buying used.
Thanks

Yep, Porsche Sports Exhaust, Sport Chrono & Nav are the top 3 I would look for. Others would be sport adaptive seats, Bose, the alloys that Jose (j8fbr) has on here (can't remember the name of them) and CD player. I would also go for the huge glass sunroof option as well.

I spec'd mine from new and took a lot of advice on here. Click on my car in the garage function, over here on the left of this post for a full list of spec.

Welcome by the way!

Let me know if I can help with the finance etc.
