Is that for the big Audi TT or the uber-rare 2WD Gallardo?

















(I would love either!)

I test drove this earlier. I've always wanted a C4S and it is in good order with low miles and a history with ARM. It needs the centre console replacing and the phone does not work but I am struggling to do any work now as I:
a)wrestle with the Porsche demons in my mind, and;
b)think of reasons to convince the wife that going from a Mustang to an older, leggier, smaller and more expensive Porsche is a good thing!

Fairly certain I know the seller of the Corrado, his daily is a Mustang and posts on the club.

That elise has been listed for aeons. Something tells me that the engine swap has turned it into a bit of a pup.

Love the 355 but too much dollar for me.

it should hit the spot, but i did say i was picky! a modified KG would be nice, but for that kind of money it's quite bland.

my 911 dilemma has been solved by the seller accepting an offer to end the auction. i was given a chance to counter yesterday afternoon but it would have been churlish of me to do so as i wouldn't be able to arrange a specialist see it until midweek. in the meantime, a thorough scouring for porsche info. has only revealed more choices, not less!

anyway - chilli, you need some senses knocked in for admiring the caddy!

Keep up at the back - he sold the Mustang a long time ago. Now has an Audi, a Civic Type R and the Corroda
