Thanks, very helpful, and seems like a good price based on market for drivers.

I bought my .2 RS through Doug after seeing it listed here. He’s a good guy.

I was under the impression that pinning the lines on a 7.1 was pretty straightforward ...
My understanding is that it can be done, but carries more risk because you are drilling and tapping into filled coolant lines. All that assumes that the current state of the epoxy is good and does not need to be pulled and regaled first.

These cars at 10+ years old and so is the epoxy. Pinning only prevents a catastrophic loss of coolant, but does not prevent leaks. To do that you need to have them welded and pressure tested or assume the welds are good.

I bought my 2007 gt3 from doug last year. I paid the 1000$ consultant fee and he found me my car in 1 week... I had been searching fruitlessly for the previous 6 months for a driver spec with no stories. My only regret is that I did not engage doug sooner! I missed out on 1/2 of an hpde season because I thought I could do better than someone who sources cars for a living. Don’t make the same mistake call doug !

Any tips on when to buy? And where to find besides RL, CG, BAT, Autotrader ...
you can buy now, or you can buy later - I don't think the 997s are going anywhere on price (either way) for a while

and to be honest - I think the 997 are the absolute best value proposition for GT3s. sure, 991s will be faster, but they're also chock full of tech that takes away from the driving experience (for ME, example - I got a GT4 drove it 40 miles and sold it....did not like it at all even though it was a capable car)

Rennlist is a good place to find good example (usually) - I found both of mine GT3s here. for comparison (pricing, etc.) check out cars.com (I'll look at eBay, but I don't like the sellers typically). Autotrader should be fine, I've never looked at BAT and I'd never do Craigslist - but again, this is merely me. on Rennlist, check w/ a few of the legends here, they know and come across good cars (Mooty, etc.). Buy the seller as much as the car

EDIT: for Switchcars - never used them but they get some decent cars. Also, I wouldn't get hung up on a specific color. I hate silver AND blue cars and both of my GT3s were Arctic Silver and now Cobalt Blue....go figure!

But I get that this is his business. I respect that.
He's doing that to make sure you have some skin in the game. I am sure it's 100% refundable. I did this with him on my first GT3. On my 2nd one I used him as well. Worth every penny.

I had first right at every GT3 to cross his desk... which was a lot.

I'm in the business but I am not a GT3 expert. If you want a nice car give him the $1,000 and relax and watch the cars come into your inbox.
