I thought the car also had full leather, but it didn't in the end. No matter.
Was aiming to pay around £5800 but ended up at £6000 which was not too bad I don't think.
Key was that the car & seller seem genuine, bought from a main dealer last year for around £10000, current mileage 46,000. Good life left in the pirelli run flats allround too.
These do drive very well - these are cracking cars - brought back vivid memories why I bought a hatchback cooper s in 2004 instead of a 996 c4s - it felt like it was almost as much fun to drive, and it is still true, for less than a 3rd of the price. Lots of instant shove from the supercharged engine, and go-kart handling.
911 is going in for some restoration for several months, hence this is a temporary 3rd car until the spring - I'll either sell it in France (where an equivalent left hand drive is worth 2x as much - remains to be seen how much rhd would sell for, if at all!), or we may keep it as it'll be nice to have a cabrio.
