A lot of money for a 998 with a lot of non original features. No hydrolastic for a start. Nice car just too much, a perfectly original Mk2 998 isn't even worth that.
Yes, but it has got its 'original' Stewart and Ardern dealership sticker just like this one. It has lasted well.

AVANTI is a real British wheel and not Italian as the name sounds.
I have nothing to do with it, can't and will not buy it because of the silly Braxit.

The magnesium minilites that I have appear to be pure, as a couple of shards I removed burned quite spectacularly!!
