Sorry, not for sale. I've had it for about 5 years, and drive it about 5K miles/year.

Thanks. Nice cars are out there, just be patient and jump quickly when yiou find the right car. I bought mine on the other side of the country and had it shipped back to me.

I have a very different opinion on the full leather. I had it in my 996. I don't know if I would want it in another car. It looks great but also has the potential to shrink and look like crap. I had to pull the dash and have it recovered. This was a pain and it really didn't look as good because most upholterers can't duplicate the factory processes.

Default The search is over!

After a long search and lots of help from fellow rennlisters I have completed my purchase of a 2009 Cabriolet S. 6-speed with ~31,000 miles on it. As you can see from the pictures below it's midnight blue with brown/saddle interior.

A HUGE thank you to boxtaboy and rwsteelers for their advice during my search.

I've had a ton of fun with it already and fully enjoyed my first nice Saturday since completing the purchase in late April.







I gave my wife an early mother's day present by washing her Audi after I too care of my 911. A man has to have his priorities straight

Congrats! Beautiful combo. How did you ultimately find "the one?"

I was very patient and got really lucky. I decided that since this was a toy I wasn't going to settle for something I wasn't thrilled with. So I passed on many over the last 2 years or so. I wasn't looking non-stop during that period rather on and off in bursts. Ultimately the luck came that a fellow rennlister saw my thread here and happened to be upgrading so it was perfect timing. Better to be lucky than good right?
