Its been a pleasure, people!
I've handed over to someone who will look after Reggie, who will look after, polish, wax, detail, maintain and improve this already awesome car.
There's so much going on in my life right now that running a modified car was far from a priority, it needed too much of my time and I found this somewhat stressful. A fortunate conversation led me to an interesting proposal, in which I swapped Reggie for an unmodified white 370z GT Edition of almost the same age and the same underlying value according to Glass' guide. We swapped cars, and we agreed a figure for the modifications and condition.
It was quite a shock to go back to a stock 370z. Its a great car but it was time for a change, and was a route to trade in. Many of you know I've had the pleasure of running two 981 Boxsters with the PDK transmission. The 3.4 S and the 2.7, and both were fantastic. I've traded in the standard 370z with Porsche GB (its likely to turn up with BCA as this is how they dispose of their trade in stock).
So the new car is an absolutely gorgeous 2015 Porsche Boxster 981 Black Edition. Its very well specified, with the PDK transmission, PASM (10mm drop, dynamic dampers), sports exhaust, some gorgeous carrera classic 20" wheels and some more besides. The Sport Plus mode gives the fastest gearchange I've ever felt â€” it sounds like the GT-3 or a sports bike!
Will turn up at a meeting sometime soon
I must say that this is the nicest and most involved car community, and I'll miss the 'spotted' stuff â€” a friendly wave was always a feature in the 'z. That just doesn't happen in a car as common as the new one!
I now hand over to Reggie's new owner to introduce himself!
