    I’ve loved having the Cayman - it’s my first Porsche after a heap of BMWs. I’ve had minimal interaction with the main Porsche centre, mainly because there are two good independents close enough....

    You can definitely do it - I have the same name as my dad and I had to transfer ownership on a car between us twice.

    An M2 hits the sweet spot for Mondello IMO. That said, I had a new 7 series out on track there and it was surprisingly nimble for such a big barge.

    I've de-listed this from the usual for sale websites, mainly because dealing with 'how much is the road tax' and 'do you think I can insure it' queries are slightly irritating. Its had a full clutch...

    My E30 was an April 1990 reg date but August 89 build date. I think there was a fair lead time from build to delivery back then. Would be pretty certain that M5 is ready for cheap tax -
