I appreciated this.
I was expecting some Scammell Wheel Nuts

Been there, done that, albeit in 3500S trim. Not sure I'd go there again. It was the final straw when I closed the tailgate and the entire glass section, along with about an inch or so of tailgate fell into the boot! The rest of the tailgate appeared to be made entirely of iron oxide and P.38!

Along with the sills, front valance, door bottoms and front scuttle. That car taught me the value of taking a magnet with me when going to purchase a car.

I had a 3500se and it was a good 'un. Zero rot, lovely, woofly drive, so charismatic

Friday offering: Always liked these, although I am not sure white suits them. However, seems like a lot of car for the money to me.

I like the white, it's those wheels that ruin it.
Like the wheels, had the same ones on mine.

I like the colour and the wheels, but aren't they fantastically, eye-wateringly expensive to run? Double a TT 600 Merc kind of silly?
I bought one very cheaply and ran it on a shoestring for 6 months or so until the lure of another shiny bauble came along. I believe the mechanicals are bombproof but the electrics can be problematical

Generally looks fairly tidy but has clearly had some sort of front end bump, judging by the wing damage, bumper mis-alignment and the bonnet sitting proud at the middle. Hopefully it's fairly simple stuff though and not a sign of more serious damage.
surprised to see a CX gti with cloth seats and no GTi badge on the steering wheel.
Mine was a series 1 and a manual but had cloth seats. Can't remember about steering wheel, I was about 18 at the time!

They appear to be Boxster wheels and have no place on an S2. I had them on an S4, they didn’t look bad but they’re not correct and they’re the wrong offset.

The ‘straight’ spokes folk are referring to are Cup wheels, which are (can be) correct and are very expensive.

Ok own up, who is the new owner of a 928?

Advert has been removed. I am very jealous!

My new (to me) barge. It’s a manual not auto, but it ticks a lot of other boxes.

Turbo petrol 2.3 red-block engine, cloth interior, and it’s clean too!

That is lovely man, enjoy. They are quality old cars and hugely practical!

Agreed. The very definition of classic bargedom.

Almost… have to stir the gears myself, but it’s really nice.

Needs a proper birthday, with all its fluids swapped, cambelt, light clusters and a bit of wiring, passenger mirror, but nothing is really wrong… I’m just being picky

If its an LPT it can be turned up to 180hp really easily if memory serves. This was my 33k mile saloon, it was like new throughout!
