    A3 is going, new car coming

    Well, time has come for me to move on from my A3 BE and Audi. 5 days and i move on to pastures new.
    Really enjoyed the forum and the people on here would like to say thanks for the help and advise i've had over my time on here.

    I'll be putting a few bits & bobs up for sale, i.e RS3 Grill, RNSe and Eibach springs, so will get these in the for sale section shortly.
    Sure I'll be back in 12 months or so, once the S3 is more available... so will keep my hand in every now and then.
    really liked the last A3's Ive had.

    On a 924 you would find Audi parts ,not sure about the Cayman though.
    Saying that VW parts were used on Austin Rovers in the 90`s Montego`s had VW/Audi wiring looms and autoboxes in them.

    still a bit apprehensive Goochy lad. Was looking to keep the A3 for another 12 months, even started to look for a another set of wheels.
    Was looking into 2005/2006 997's so looked at one for sale near me, then came across a Gen II Cayman and the rest as they say was history. Picking the car up (hopefully) Saturday from a Porsche specialist near London

    Porsches are extremely comfortable places to sit, I had a very brief go in a boxster S, was great.

    That black cayman you've shown has a fair arch gap? You'll have to sort that!

    Drove my mates 2007 2.7 and it was excellent. Cayman styling has been a real grower for me over the years to the point I reckon its the most striking of the Porker line up at the minute.
    These are great value too IMO.

    cheers lad, looking forward to picking it up
    sure I'll be back in Audi in 12 months or so. Had 4 now, just like them. Fancy a Porsche for a while, good looks, great quality and great drive
