I'm going to go and sign the paperwork tonight I think. He said that it normally takes about 10 days to service, prep, polish etc, so given it's Easter this weekend, I'm figuring a week on Friday evening/Saturday morning. Am already plotting a trip to the Black Forest

Following the last time I was in a motor vehicle with you, I shall politely decline your kind offer
Ok, I understand...

*sniff*

Mind that glass house won't you though! What's the insurance like?

Maybe you could make your own version of this wearing Persol sunglasses with Matt Monroe singing in the background:

Re: Car leasing residual value

A 911 Porsche is everyones dream, but when it comes to the speed restriction, trafic jam, exessive road use and and driving over sidewalks i think a Cayenne is the better choice. I know 2 people who had the 350 horse power sport car locked up in the garage for years and never uses it. Al are swearing about the massive trafic in switzerland and extreme expensive speeding fines and the envier scratching the car.

Right on, the Cayenne is oblivious to all of the above ?

I'm going to ignore the baiting, suffice to say if I can live with a sportscar in London I can cope here. The people in this country need to get a reality check in terms of what they think overcrowding is, either on public transport or on the roads. My record waiting for a tube at Waterloo to get to work was 12 trains, before I could squeeze into one. People here complain if they can't get a seat!

The 911 may not be coming now

I've just got off the phone with the dealer and it turns out they had the car on sale or return and the owner has just totalled his over car and isn't vollkasko, so needs the 911 back while he decides what to do. GRRRRRRRR

They have offered me a frankly stonking deal on a newer (997) 4S, but it's silver, which my girlfriend hates (and frankly I'm not a huge fan of) and it's not a turbo. I just know if I go for it I'm just going to wish I'd got the turbo all the time. Oh decisions...

I could live with that tbh and the comments I was getting from mates last night about hairdressers and gayers cars. I'm buying the car for the love of driving not image.
I am so saving that quote for future regurgitation.

Sorry to hear about the proper Porsche though, sure there'll be another one popping up soon.

Re: Car leasing residual value

I think you should shop around on autoscout24 or try to import one from the USA. Also try the amag center in Zug.
But you need to be carefull to park a new 911 in and around Zürich.

Thank you for the advice. I am only interested in having a Porsche from an official Porsche centre. The model I want in the right colour, with reasonable mileage isn't available in the whole of CH right now. I have had problems in the past from buying cars from non-main dealers, when there have been warranty problems. Also nowhere else is offering a 2 year global warranty - with a car like this that is very important to me. Importing a car from the US would also have this problem, as well as the conversion issues and frankly I'm not sure a purchase of this magnitude is done over the phone/email.

Wrt to parking. Not really an issue - I will rent a garage next to my apartment and live close to the centre of Zurich, so would still continue to use the tram/S-Bahn to get into the city centre.

Whereas I looked at getting a Cayenne and found it to be one of the worst 4x4s I've even driven. It was so twitchy on the motorway; you accept that in a 911 but a 2 tonne barge?

The only good thing about the Cayenne is that the residuals are so poor you can pick up a Cayenne Turbo for the same price as a new Focus in the UK (granted, servicing will cost you a bomb).

well then get a Porsche from US at a official Porsche dealer...many do so and you can afford more car for less cash...only 911 I would ever consider would be the 911 4s preferably convertible but would be ok with coupe...look at cars.com....plenty of deals especially for pre-owned

you are entitled to your opinion...I've found it to be a good combo of utility and sportiness....LR's are a joke quality and handling wise...and so are X5's or Jeeps which don't perform well in any category

Quite clearly you are nuts. Whilst the Range Rover has some quality issues, handling wise it is leagues ahead of the Cayenne.

Well bravo. You circumvented the swear filter and used bad language on quite a friendly forum to make a childish point. Have a groan.

Gents any chance of keeping this mildly on topic.

There is no way on God's green earth I am going to buy a 4x4 with summer approaching.
