(And don't worry, RG7 3UT is my old postcode).
Current 2015 911.1 GTS, Carmine, PDK, interior pack, stunning. The car I've always wanted. Makes me smile, just thinking about it.
Gone 2016 Carmine Cayman GTS, PDK + toys, 2015 RS5 Cab (Panther, most of the toys - except straigtheners), 2012 Discovery 4 family wagon, 2014 Golf R (Loaded, total sh!te), 2015 Cayman GTS, PDK and stuff, 2014 RS4, Sepang with most of the toys, SQ5, S4 lots of other cars - nothing of interest to be honest.

I rescued it

It badly needed a full bumper and bonnet respray which I didn't do, so I'd make sure that had been done 4years on.

Thought it was familiar. Mileage getting high now, but still...could be worth a punt.

I messaged the seller

Front end still a mess and on original clutch

I'd pay no more than £50k

That's a fair shout.

At the same time, I'm trying to see if this beauty can be secured - one thing's for sure, it ain't selling for £110k:

18months ago Leicester Audi had a 52k mile V10 R8 with buckets for £52k.

I nearly bought it but went F-TYPE R, and don't regret that.

Based on that, this red one looks overpriced.

Top spec, but the front end was/is a mess....and I can't see any clutch being happy past 70k, let alone shocks etc

What makes you say it won't sell for 110k? I reckon there will be plenty of takers for a 991 gen 1 GTS in PTS.

There may well be, but it's been on for a long time. I'm seeing if there's movement. 991 prices are dipping though, the new one seems to behaving more of an impact than I thought, in spite of the fact it's breathed on.

One day. I'll own a voodoo 991 GTS, if it's the last thing I do :-)
