no supprise there... if we go into recession Porsche would loose its primary market; rich city traders. Would have to hit resale values.

If you want a laugh.. the dealers are so up themselves that they tried to convince my dad that 'most usual porsche customers' buy a nearly new whilst they wait for their new car...They wouldn't even guarantee a residual over 6-8 months!!

I was supprised how good some of the Merc PCP deals were. BMW was comparitivley expensive. Didn't like the merc's much though.

ha ha! and mine only covered a deposit for a 123d!... any tips?!

Still worked for NHS for years so never thought i'd own a new BMW before...

The 5th Gear was an OK review - but not sure on the drift test purpose. I often wonder if some of the magazine reviewers look further than the brochure for the cars they review..

(if your bonus was as a result of motor journalism... again... I apologise! ;-))

In my experience Porsches are being bought by all and sundry now, not just City folk. Essco your bonus only got you a 135i, poor you! My heart bleeds

K30 feels (felt) my pain, we don't get a bonus in the NHS!

That makes me feel much better, does this mean it's more exclusive to get a 135i then?
