Hi guys,

Sold the 'zato by 10am last Saturday.  6 hours later I became the owner of D666 NHE, a porsche 924 S.  It has the 2.5 litre porsche engine, so it is a real porsche!

Has done 76000 miles and I am the 4th owner.  Previous owner had it since 1998 and now has a 911 turbo.  In nice orignial condition with a box of receipts and history.

Definitely different to the 'zato, feels much more solid but not as nippy and chuckable.  Been getting used to it this week and quite liking it.  Got it insured on a classic policy so only

Looks good Lewis, and not a bad price for low mileage 924S I thought you were after an imp though?

I had its lardy big brother, a 944, a while ago and the Porka 2.5 engine is pretty good. timing belt changes are quite expensive on those as theres 2 belts and they're not straightforward to change from memory. If you do get the belts done get the oil seal replaced behind them at the same time. Belts had been done on mine when I got it but not the seal, so when the seal went the belts had to come off again.

I found http://www.porscheclubgbforum.com/ quite good and useful for tips etc. Enjoy your Porka mate, but don't forget its winter and rwd. Mine used to get tail happy at roundabouts now and again, so be careful ;)

I've got a feeling what you save on insurance you'll be spending on fuel ...

I was looking for an imp, but I saw this, it was local and in good nick so I went for it.  Plan is to run it around for a bit and then hopefully sell it for at least what I paid for it.  Fuel is definitely the compromise for cheaper insurance, but I don't do that many miles so I have worked it out and with the probable lack of depreciation it shouldn't cost me much more than the 'zato over the year.

Drove around about 70 miles round surrey last night and was great fun.  Handles extremely well and even with it being a bit damp the tail was well behaved. Had a little slide round a roundabout, but all under control.  Problem with the 'zato in standard spec was the amount of roll put me off going really fast round the bends.  This doesn't roll at all.
