Doesn't look like the finance thing is gonna work out. May have to suffer the 911 for a while longer ;-)

Don't be too upset. That car has been for sale at Maranellos for over a year. I nearly bought it for 63K in March, but it had some engine head problems that needed repairing. It belongs originally to an Indian gentlemen living around the corner from me in north London (Bishops) and is on SOR. It had a big prep bill as many items were worn or expired. These would have been repaired though, but Maranellos were a bit iffy about test driving that individual car. I'd be a bit worried that they wouldn't get it 100% and it might have been down on power, but they never let me test drive it. So I retracted my deposit. Its one of those cars that are stuck on their hands. I'd say that car would be one to stay away from personally. Lucky escape?

Good luck with the next one!

Ninja, wasn't a young guy was it. I used to always see an young looking Indian guy driving up and down King's Road blasting his music out with 2 passengers on board. If it is the same guy I wouldn't be shocked to find out that particular car had taken some abuse.

Exactly. 'ad to fit 'is 2 boyz in the one seat innit.
Two lovely bits of totty can be explained away, but two blokes cannot! Trust me on this one, you haven't lived until you've had two lasses in your 355spider.

Edited for to correct perfect spelling.

I'll give it another go in the spring, not the best time of year for driving a spider anyway eh?
