    Strange my mate had a 16 plate and thought it was a terrible car, overrated and not great for the road. He crashed it after a year. He has an m2 which he says is miles better

    But they are so ugly and really unstable at high speeds. One tried to kill Jeremy clarkson in a straight line at 130mph

    I’ve a couple of mates who have m135i/m140i... both really look the part and are flying machines, but they don’t look anything like the boring strandard cars

    718 Cayman GTS is looking inbound for 19 plate next year now.
    Completely different to anything I’ve owned to date, but for a weekend car it ticks all the right boxes.

    Yeah weather. Any sign of snow and my Z4’s just went sideways.

    Especially the ones with runflats. Never tried the Z4M in snow or winter conditions

    What options do you have at the end of the 48 term? Pay off the final payment or hand it back

    Ouch, presumably a big final payment of over 30k, 20k of options is impressive, thought it was only me who had no will power. I guess it’s easy to spend that much on options on a Porsche. looks nice

    Presume it slower than an fl rs3 in a straight line but is a lot quicker around corners

    Thing is with Porsche they hold there value so well that worrying about residuals isn’t really an issue like most other brands where you generally get your pants pulled down!
    Its about £10k of options, the above doesn’t include vat on the price of the car (£50k), the car starts at around £61k I think on the road.

    Well I raced one when my RS3 was stock and yes eventually I overtook him but there wasn’t a great deal in it at all, it actually surprised me but then it is close to 300kg lighter

    I remember my mate spec’ing and buying a new boxter (ok, not really a real Porsche) many moons ago, and then they released the boxter S with his options and more for less money about a year later, he lost about £10k-£15k ‍♂️

    Unlikely going to be an issue with cayman

    The new A45 will be "over" 400hp so the 3 will have to be higher again of course! I might be looking again at about that time ;)

    I enquires about the Miami blue at Leeds Audi but I think it’s overpriced and told them so 51k and it’s a 1 owner car with 4,500 miles and a year old! Surely it should be mid to low 40s interest rate was also 9.9%
