Looks like a great car. I love those colors. How bad is the roof paint? Does it point to poor prep for the other parts of the car? That would be my biggest concern. People can spend a ton of $'s on repairs and paint but if the folks who did the work were not top quality then........ We had a local consignment place with a great looking mid year car a while back. They were advertising it with an expensive rebuilt motor and a bunch of other repairs/updates. When a buddy looked at the documentation it turned out the Motor Meister had done the engine. He walked away.

It's common. The fog comes and goes. Happens to mine as well.

Get your deposit down ASAP and do your PPI. Could be a good deal if everything checks out.

Don't wait. You could lose it.

Once again, I must've missed the part that you're selling a 993 to buy an SC. That, to me, is an entirely different decision making process, and not one to be taken lightly.

Have you thought this through? What kind of 993 and why are you selling it? In my mind, that's a head scratcher unless it has big money needs.

Itís a silver 6spd coupe with 116k miles. Iíve been offered $48.5k. Itís never had any engine or valve guide work. And thatís what worries me. I fear big bills in the future. The car seems to run great now, but I do worry. The SC at least has had a ton of work done on it. Maybe itís not a good idea.

Oh, THAT thread. Yes, I read and followed that one.

To the OP: the devil you know is better than the devil you don't know. Maybe you should spend $500 on doing a thorough leak down, inspection, PPI etc on your own car to see what it needs or might need. I maintain selling a 993 to buy an SC might not be the best idea.

Way ahead of ya. Thatís exactly what Iím doing. Iím have a compression and leak down test scheduled on Thursday. Wish I could check the valve guides also, but the shop didnít seem to think it was necessary.

The sellers price is way more realistic than I guessed heíd be. With 80k into it, it better damn well be ready to go
