Default Update - keeping it!

Day 1 - listed the car for sale. Day 2 - raised price by $10,000. Day 3 - pulled listing.

Can't do it - the 997S drives perfect. Just went over 93,000 miles on the odometer yesterday

Good for you! You'll never get what the car is worth to you anyway. Enjoy & rediscover!

Para,

Obviously that's a great call, so welcome back ! But I'm curious about why you even put it on the market in the first place? Were you thinking of moving to a different car, getting some heat from your better half as to why you pay more attention to your 997 rather than her, or are you pleading temporary insanity...?

I plead temporary insanity - GrandSport had me temporarily interested but when I went to the dealer to option one out I started to realize there was no way I could replace a 911 with a Vette. I will reconsider the Vette when my GT350 warranty is up which might be a long time - looking into giving Ford 900 bucks for a 7 year/75k mile warranty on that car.

Wait...GT350?

Not to derail the thread, but honestly we know how awesome the 997 is (in the 90K+ club myself). How do you enjoy the 'stang?

Also good choice re: the Porsche.

Probably one of the most intoxicating driving experiences money can buy. On the street it's a riot and on the track it's extremely fast. Incredible machine.

We talked about it a lot here - https://rennlist.com/forums/991-gt3-...030-gt350.html

It's about time you came to your senses LOL. Glad you and the car are staying.

Out of curiosity, how much were you asking? Curious where the market is for the 90k+ mile crowd as that wouldn't scare me away.
