Technically you can DD anything to office and back etc. To me a DD has to be good so I can pick up my kids from school, park it at the shops, go to Bunnings load it with crap, etc. etc. that's why I love buying fast wagons. The GT4 wouldn't know which way my C63 went or a RS6 for that matter why would you bother?

Having something which is a PITA to drive over speed humps, does 80 km/h in 1st gear, has only enough room for your wallet, everyone wants to take photos of gets boring extremely quickly for me anyway.

When I got my first Lotus Elise i was so excited by it i used it for everything. I would have lost count of the amount of trips to Bunnings with the roof off with 3.6 length's of timber hanging out LOL.

but yes a fast wagon is a good thing if you need 4 seats (I actually had an A4 turbo at the same time as the aforementioned elise, but just hated how large it was) . I just wish someone made a fast/sporty micro van, or equivalent.

let's not talk about some of the cars I DD'ed in the past haha hence why I said you can pretty much DD anything.

Eventually you grow up, kids come, responsabilities and requirements change, cycle of life.

So does this 997.1 Turbo - $157k, 54,000kms and with CCB's.  Looks like a decent car for the money

Tiptronic, if it was manual it would be another $15-20K.

Kids come - and they go too. Then a 4 door daily makes less sense. I could happily use my GT4 as a daily. It feels good to drive in any circumstances.

Now this seems like a bargain

A UK import.  I have a vague recollection that I saw it for sale a couple of years ago for around $140k

makes sense. Lorbeks don't price aggressively.
