Hi, I'm new!

This is my first post.
I live in scotland and am looking for a 944
Just wanted to know why you guys think these cars are the best and what to look out for.

I'm really interested in cars and have had a fare share of cars, cars I've had,

Toyota corolla gti
Nisan 200sx (S13)
Toyota MR2 tirbo t-bar
Another 200sx (S13) with 280BHP.

Crashed this last week, breaking my arm in 3 places. I want something that will get loads of looks and classy
I've think I've had enough of fast jap cars.
Any common problems with 944's

I'm mechanically minded as I've changed turbos, replaced head gaskets and any other stuff and upgrades on my car. I got it from a standared 170bhp to 280bhp at the cost of 800

Looking to spend between 2000-3000
Want a black one, lowered and some nice wheels.
My big bro has a 911 turbo, check this link for pics of his car and my beloved nissan

I didnt wreck the other 3. Just my recent one, which I'm so gutted about. Left hand broke in 3 parts.

Well if you want a lowered car you dont need to lower the 944 because its really low already and they have nice stock wheels. If your going to get a 944 get an extra 1000 or so (..i dont know the money conversion) for repairs after the first year. Get the car checked out by a porsche mechanic before you buy it also.
