      One thing I've noticed over the years is that those who sell often come back....welcome back.

      Yup. It’s a hard model to beat. Wait a bit and a sonic will show up. Wait longer and a pricey flash will.

      Thanks. It's been a responsible, fuel efficient couple of years!

      Not too picky TBH. 05+, automatic, mileage not a massive concern as long as maintenance has been kept up on.

      Welcome back, the quality of new cars scares me into to keeping my R. Can't stand fake leather...

      I am at a point where I can buy just about anything I want, reasonably, and I keep coming back to the P2R. Nothing new has really caught my eye as a complete package.

      Same, amazing to see even the most top tier performance machines cutting corners when it comes to materials. 04-09 was the golden age of build quality/materials, that doesn't mean technology though, obviously. I really want to fit the R with Quattro and a DSG, I'd never get rid of it at that point.

      That all said, after 5 years my R is finally dialed in exactly the way I want it, performance/drivability-wise.
