LOL....ever deal with Rolex? I currently own five Rolex watches. Two of them are actually pictured in my Avatar. And some can be expensive, yes. My fiance always tells me if we sell the watches we can either get a bigger house or some new cars....LOL.

I got my first three when I was 24 so you still have a year to go.

Have a good night!

Just wondering if the 986 was a bit more fun to drive since it seems smaller and maybe a bit more nimble. I already have a Z06 that has been modded a bit, I plan on keeping it and just adding another sportscar. I have a friend that might be selling his 996TT, it has been driven very hard and he will sell it cheap he said.

If you give me the year, mileage and options I'll tell you what's a good number on it.

P.S. Every Turbo is driven hard and if they tell you otherwise then they are lying.

It's a 2002 fully loaded with 33K miles on it. Said he would sell it for around 100K.

Too high for those miles. That's a $hit load of miles for a Turbo. A 2002 X50 for $100K should not have more than about 12K miles and be very nicely optioned. While the X50 package adds alot to the sticker, it is not that much more used. Also, for the price difference you can mod up a non X50 to be much faster than the X50. I think a more accurate # on that car if it meets what I said above is around $93K to be a deal. Not that $100K is not doable, but it's no bargain. JMHO.

Wink

Crack kills, speed can kill too. Lesson of the day; don't smoke crack and keep it under 145mph. And never, never, smoke crack and then drive 145mph.

I am going over to his house today or maybe tomorrow, I will take a photo of it then. It is Speed Yellow and looks real nice. I told him I checked with some folks and they thought the price is way too high for the miles. He said not to worry, we can make a deal.

Well, I'm all grown up and my priorities have not changed too much...

I still try to stay out of jail at all costs and the things that are important are still important.

Family, Friends, Travel, Good Food, Health, Happiness and Fast Cars...

...Except the Fast Women part. That changed when I got married.

"Can I get a witness!!!"

I feel like I'm preachin'.

Here it is....I got back from where he lives over in Louisana today. The car looks great and I had a guy check it out, said it is in good shape even with the miles. I will let you know what happens next.

I thought around 90k seemed kinda high considering the mileage on that baby. But, I think he said that this one here is the x50 stryke. Are you sure you weren't just looking at regular 911 turbos? I think the x50 is about 20k more when new. I'd take 415hp any day though on a reg 911 turbo.
