    I looked at selling my GT3 with them a couple of years back. Whilst I ended up going privately, they seemed like very laid back (in a positive way), no pressure and professional people. David is one if a nicer blokes you'll meet in the car world. Another time I rang him to see if selling our Cayenne through them would be an option, not only was he up front in saying that particular car would be best sold privately (given the model and the stock they already had at the time), but he actually took the time to research recent sales using his dealer access to carsales and got back to me two days later with some guidance on where I should set the sale price. Unbelievably good level of service! I don't get down there enough, only because I feel bad dropping in to just drool!

    And yes, you will not like the GT3/RS ride if you didn't like the C2S..

    You need to escelate your dispute, contact the dealer principal... they are the ones with the ability to make these situations right!

    Edgy, Richmonds are fantastic.
    Uncle described exactly the type of blokes they are and the service you get.
    Wouldn't hesitate to buy from them or sell with them again. Speak to David or Carlo.
    If you need more info send me a message.

    Thanks for the tag mate, have been looking for any skerrick of footage my car might have been in for ages! Cool that @James P car is right there too. Big hit for Reynolds and very good evasive driving by Webb at 200 clicks there.

    Spoke to my mate last night that purchased his 996.2GT3RS through Richmond’s. Same as uncle great experience organised transport etc. he has also purchased through Dutton’s and said that Richmond’s were certainly streets ahead and would deal with them again.
    Kurt If they treat their buyers well I’m sure they would look after sellers just as well. Im was told by Dutton’s they have a high repeat customer where they often sell the same car a few years later. Its often a revolving door at this kind of level.

    I bought my Lamborghini from them. Service was top notch even though I probably bought the cheapest car they had in the showroom at the time. I was dealing with David (Owner?) whom was a consummate professional. No pressure to buy, was happy to answer questions and was very honest about the car and his thoughts on it. I’d spoken to him at 3p.m on I think a Tuesday to say I’d think about it overnight and get back to him. At 9:30 that night I sent him a text to say I’d buy it and to please forward me account numbers. He got back to me within 5 minutes saying my word I would buy was enough for him and to just make sure it was paid for in full before I flew down. Fair call and I appreciated his candour.
    Over the next few days sent the money over and he took care of the rest. When I told him I was going to drive the car back to Newcastle he was super helpful with advice on places to stay with good parking and food etc. I very much got the feeling that they are enthusiasts and when they pick up that you are too they go the extra mile.
    I called David on our arrival at the airport who said he would be there in 5 minutes and I would know the car he was in. Yep it wasn’t hard to pick the mint gold 1980s Rolls Royce lol.
    When we got back to the showroom the car was parked ready to go with a full tank and everything that came with it from the factory right down the Lamborghini kids colouring set. Normally this stuff would be long gone at a dealership. David also included some extra coffee table books on the history of Lamborghini that he thought I might like. We had a coffee and a look around whilst he did the last of the paperwork. Again stress free and relaxed.
     
    In the following days I got the odd text to ask how the trip was going and if I had any questions or needed any help with anything. This is the real sign of good service. Unlike a lot of shops/dealerships once you have paid for something they are off looking for the next customer. I’d bought a cheap Gallardo but the service was new McLaren level.
    Anyway as such from my experience dealing with them and the service I got I keep an eye on what they have in stock as I would buy from them again without issue. Whilst they aren’t cheap I’m pretty confident I’d know what I’d be getting.

    I can confirm that this is a great way to destroy all your opportunities to "share" a drive with your spouse... which may or may not be important to some, it is to me... so we bought a Boxster
    To me, I think of the 003 as adding "saleability" to the right buyer... its kinda like some of the stuff we do in our home renovations, they add appeal, but no monetary value... 
    I think if you were pressed by two exact examples, and you wanted the CS, you 'd pay the small premium... but with so little examples of any GT3, rarely will you be spoilt for choice.

    I've always maintained it makes little to no difference, but if you should find yourself in the situation of wanting to procure the Clubsport items to add to a GT3, it is obscene money to buy them! The cage is circa $8000 then the CGT type seats are about $16,000 if and when you can buy them... to my knowledge, the folding type was never offered in the 997 GT3, they were optional to the GT2 though, which is why they are often referred to as just GT2 folding buckets, but again, insane money to buy... 8350 Euro inc shipping is what Carnewal last quoted me! And then there is the other little knick knacks that came with 003. 
    I think you always need to put these things into context, because you might be looking at the perfect example in a rare colour but its missing the 003 option, naturally you'll do what it takes to get the deal done... and then its pretty fair to say there is a good share of people who actually don't want the 003 pack, cos its going to be a road car only. 
    So I say, to the right buyer, a 003 car will bring a slight premium... perhaps 5-10k ~ 
    And going back to the context of the subject matter, the mix of 997 GT3 to 003 was heavily weighted to NON 003... where as look back to 996.1, majority of those are 003 cars... so naturally, the guys selling a non 003 want more money cos its statistically rarer.
