If I get bored I will find out the skinny but have no interest at this point in my life for cars with anything but a good history. No way I would skimp on a car of this complexity as I see it as foolish.

Well at 150kmiles with no leaks and running it must have had significant refreshes. Too bad some idiot decided to weld a metal roof onto this one.

Private sellers get nervous fast. Even if they don't have hard constraints like needing cash or lacking storage, winter coming up in The North etc., which many do.

Huh? This is a dealer that is selling that car. Plus it's in Cali. Not much of a winter

Another 996tt lead stolen from the NA996 forum. The poster, gnat, says be wary because the background doesn't look like the Washington, DC area it is supposedly located in, but he also offers to do a Rennfax if anyone is interested since he lives nearby.
2001 996tt, Tiptronic, 79k miles, asking $34,500.

Please excuse the noob question, but when they talk about warts on these cars, what does that mean?

They are the front bumper guards on the 01 first half year model TT. They were supposed to increase HP by 10 with a NOS sticker and look ugly.

Just replace with any number of non wart bumpers on EBay

I looked up the VIN and looks like it last sold in 2012 on eBay with 44K miles

Thoughts?

That color would be a challenge for me. I wa a fan of Orient until I saw in person. Not my kind of color and with that interior nope. And this is my PERSONAL opinion. Aftermarket stereo equipment causes me to say nope. You never know what hack installed it.

But that is my .02 only

Cobalt blue was a rare color. A grey interior isn't very attractive with it. It's much nicer with the dark blue metropole color interior. Almost appears black, but not as harsh. Took a while to find one.
