After all these years of entering competitions online I finally won something!



This is not a [Censored] take! I really did win the Best Of The Best Sportscar Competition so I'll be waving goodbye to Lotus ownership soon and giving a Porsche a go for a while.

Strange really as back when I joined Pistonheads I had an old 944 2.7 and since that have had a variety of different cars. I had been considering maybe going back to a Porsche or something else a little more 'day to day' than my current Elise and this has given me a damn good way to do it smile It'll also mean I'll be back on Pistonheads a lot more as I don't know of a better resource for Porsche related chat.

BTW Will and the team at Best Of The Best have given me a couple of discount codes but I'll wait til PH have given me the all clear to post them here as I don't want to get myself or BOTB into any trouble.

Yay Me!

Sweet, well done.

How long do you have it for or is it a keeper?

Very nice and very lucky, I wonder how many people will give that a go because of this.

I was talking about you the other day, I was going to drop you a line but 'this' came up and has kind of distracted me!

We were discussing Stag Do's in the office and I told them how I took you along to look after me for the evening smile

I've been upto a few things in the past few years including the arrival of a little boy called Alex smile

Life was already super cool, now it's reached an whole new level!

Congratulations!

If it wasn't for a total lack of 'spot the ball'/football knowledge I could get dangerously addicted to those.

I saw a BOTB stand in Heathrow the other day with an R8 and a Tesla on show, I thought about it. But was a bit skeptical about weather or not it was just a scam.. I guess it's not really.

What happens when you win, do you get to pick the car? Or did you enter a competition for the Porsche?

Awesome! My dad's done that BOTB thing a couple of times but hasn't won yet. I'll have to show him this to spur him on a bit!

I know nothing about Football. My wife has to explain the offside rule to me... I just looked at the eyes of the players etc and clicked a few times! biggrin

The voucher code I got through the email encouraged me to do it smile

I can't help but think the plates are the wrong way round.

The cabs sort of says Boxster and the other starts with LC which could be london cab.
