MoC2Salbert911tgThank you Clive, that is what our Club is all about-helping fellow Members to avoid pitfalls as there are many 'bargains' out there! My basic message is to get it inspected BEFORE you buy-the cost is usually out weighed by the prior knowledge of any potential issues i.e. coolant pipes are a common replacement and it's not cheap! I'm hoping other Register Secretaries follow you and the Cayman,928 and others who have compiled a useful guide to Porsche ownership.Albert WalshRegister Director Jeez, Albert, its hard to believe you would write stuff like this without doing a tiny bit of research on other Registers .. please check out the dates on the 993 Register buying guide, along with a diaspora of Tech Articles and FAQs. Others to follow were 996 and 964 Registers, mostly written before Caymans were invented, for Chr1$t$ $ake. No, I'm not bitter .. but I get tired of this s0rt of sh1t, which seems to get perpetuated by self-aggrandising social climbers, in which description I don't include Clive .... cheers, Maurice

PokharaI'm new to PCGB and joined with a view to gaining information ahead of my intended purchase of a Gen2 997, 2S/4S. I'd appreciate any thoughts on my intended purchase and also recommendations for decent specialist retailers. Paragon and RSJ I'm aware of. Are these any good: and are there any more that you'd recommend please?
