hi guys thanks for all the advice,after a bit of thought and a test drive in a cayman,i,ll be staying with my macan Gts.
Cayman was over specced imo and likely to depreciate quite a bit i reckon.plus i didn't like the "sound" of the cayman.
Made me realise just what a good all round car the Macan Gts really is.think it would have to be a turbo PP if anything now.
ps congrats wingco :D

In an earlier thread I was reading WinCo said he was preparing a database - have you been scraping the web with a python as well! :ugeek:
He has gone very quiet. Do you think he is page scraping or spec'ing a new 911? :lol:

Has been an eventful weekend! My girlfriend's eldest daughter had a baby last night, 8 weeks premature! Fortunately mother and baby are both doing well... :D


P.S. If I was to be speccing another 911, it would be a GT3 with Touring Pack...

Well, we can all dream...! ;)
Don't dream, do it. Where there's a will, there's a way over priced car at one of the independents. :D

Enjoy the canary T before even thinking about anything else. I think I saw it described as a GTS light but still with more than enough horses to get you in serious trouble and an awful lot more practical than a GT3 for every day use 👍

Thanks, VanB. Quite right of course. And I fully agree with that description of the T - a kind of GTS-lite! :)

And deep down I know that a GT3 (Touring Pack or not) would not really be a sensible daily driver. :oops:
