Does anyone have any info on No 63?
It is on the register, wonder why the badge on the boot has gone?
Anyone have any info on the dealer?

I am very tempted

Odd for having 0 feedback. Tread carefully

Changed my mind, that interior is to dark for that colour in my opinion.

Mine is also an 08 cabrio number 041 with pretty similar specs. I thought my mileage was low for an 08 at 43000. Mine is Titanium silver with black Dakota leather. Original owner decided against any boot badges.

I sold it to Meridian Modena, Lyndhurst back in Sept 2011 with 3,600 miles - I bought it new in 2008 from Sytner Canary Wharf.

Just been to have a look at it and bought it back today.

Everything clear on the checks - not sure why the boot badge has gone but the boot looks original. Maybe one of the owners removed - as you can see from my profile picture the badge was there when I first had it.

Was last PX'd at a Porsche Dealer in London and the current seller picked it up from Blackbush Car Auctions (where the Porsche Dealer offloads their PX's) - this ties up with one of my dealer friends comments about seeing it there when I called in and spoke this afternoon.

I guess the dark leather does not appeal to all - it was my factory choice so why it did it for me again this time Smile

Mudflapps - I never really paid attention to them before... got me thinking now.

I have bought for my local commute to keep the mileage down on my other car.

I really regret PXing this car for a Ferrari - worse car decision of my life I think Sad

Glad to have it back in the garage!

Cheers,
Jason
