    Should I PPI?

    Hi Base, it sounds pretty good from your description. If you have any concerns perhaps you could give Hamiltons a call after checking with the owner and see if they are able to provide any further information. Not sure if they can but worth a try. In terms of getting a PPI, if it was me and based on what you have said, I would proceed without but if you want 100% piece of mind do it. Remember you are also buying the seller so if you get a good vibe from him or her then that also goes a long way towards buying a car in my opinion. Good luck with the purchase.
  3. I would also consider that the car is Porsche approved and has a warranty with them. I figure if they are are backing the car, then that is a good sign. I hope that it works out however if this one doesn't there will be another.
  4. Now he is going to start thinking about it again!! What have you done!! Good luck with the purchase. I hope to get to see some pictures soon then!
  5. Hi Tips, have to stay I loved my '76 sporto (silver with tartan seats) but not the sporto part as much. I liked the quirky nature of it however given the choice would rather a manual. It did cost a bit to maintain (refurbished torgue converter) and parts are getting harder to come by. I bought it because it was a VERY good price at the time and got me into my first AC 911 so was a no brainer. Driving wise i always found the change down a bit hit and miss because I really had to judge the corner and hope that the clutch would come out in time so it felt like I didn't have the same level of control. This may have the sporto setup or even me!! Mind you it did pull like a train and was great in traffic because it was just like an auto. I think that if the price is right, buy it and like Elsporto said change it out (Close your ears @Dreamr) down the track. In hindsight I should have kept it and done just that. I hope that helps.
  6. Wow. Looks awesome and love the tartan too. Brings back memories from my old 911.
  7. It was a great turnout and @Dreamr's Porsche Junior (not the tractor) was a big hit!
  8. It’s a manual with 147,000 kms. (Caveman has authorised this post!!)
  9. Don’t worry George he bought another one!!
  10. Good luck with the sale Caveman. For anyone looking for a Boxster, this is the one to buy. David is nothing short of fanatical with his cars so you are getting a good one here.
  11. Good one Matt. Great to see my old baby getting some love again!
  12. That’s why he never drives his in the rain.
