    Sheffield have also taken a ton of cash from me and in general have not been bad. Always get a car and they will deliver and collect.

    You reckon? The advert on Autotrader looks to have been re-written recently and the pictures (although inside) seem comprehensive. If I don’t get any bites after another few weeks I may look to drop the price a touch.

    @crinkleshoes I’ve always rated Porsche East London very highly, honest and friendly bunch but not sure what their lead times are like. I’ve always dealt with a guy called Neil Haddow on the service side, shout if you want his email.

    I'd be throughly unhappy with centre lock wheels in that state, did they hire stevie wonder and his impact driver?

    rest of the car is lovely :)

    Interesting you mention that. Was thinking of getting the detailer todo a tidy on them. Needs a slight rub down, touch up and polish on a couple of them just in that inner edge. That’s if he can get them off lol.

    I really do like the Porsche interiors. Even the base model Panamera I test drove a couple of years ago was a very nice place to be.

    Nice car, did you get caught up in this stop sale problem?

    What’s the spec? Canyon? Gts 4 with pccb?

    Cheers. I'll see if I can get a few more pics at some point.

    It's a Carrera 4 GTS in Crayon. I absolutely love the colour but that's always a subjective subject...

    Was fairly trigger-happy with the spec:

    911 badge
    LED main headlights in black including Porsche Dynamic Light System Plus (PDLS Plus)
    ParkAssist (front and rear) with reversing camera
    Electrically folding exterior mirrors
    Electric slide/tilt glass sunroof
    Privacy glass (rear side windows and rear window)
    Rear apron painted
    Headlight cleaning system covers painted
    Side skirts painted
    Exterior mirror (lower part) painted
    Porsche Doppelkupplung (PDK)
    Rear-axle steering
    Porsche Ceramic Composite Brake (PCCB)
    20-inch 911 Turbo S wheels
    GTS interior package
    Adaptive cruise control including Porsche Active Safe (PAS)
    Lane Change Assist
    Speed limit display
    Automatically dimming mirrors with integrated rain sensor
    Light design package
    Heated multifunction steering wheel

    Yes, I was initially told there would be a delay but the dealers (Cambridge) worked really hard to prep it on schedule once Porsche had sorted out their radio hack.

    Lovely GTS, I am really looking forward to mine.

    I am waiting on the confirmation the PTS has been accepted at the moment but I wont get that for a few months yet as the factory is on shutdown at the mo.

    GTS does seem to be the one to get. About the only thing id swop it for is a GT3 Touring down the line. The full fat GT3 is just too much lol.
