Why a TTS and not a TTRS / Cayman / 911 / Lambo / Bugatti Veyron etc. etc.

Because isn’t the price difference pretty much close to none if you just get one that has 20k more miles on it?

It's not though is it, I posted a 7 grand V6 with about 45k miles on the clock, the cheapest TTS on autotrader in the whole country with under 70k miles (that isn't damage/repaired) is £10,500 or 50% more than the V6.

Add another 50% to £10,500 and you are into Cayman territory etc. etc.

Any solid (so a couple of mm) box made of alu or steel, that can be closed so it forms a continuous conductive surface will stop that.

A example like this is designed for electronic goods:

Has the metal connecting gasket so you don't have to screw it down everytime. Obviously a bit niche and difficult to obtain.

A bag is not as effective, because it will not completely seal and form a continuous layer and is not as thick. You can buy the RF absorbing material from lots of places. Then it can be made to your own spec and design with a different exterior fabric. Just make sure the entrance to the bag folds over a couple of times to get a decent seal (like water proof bag designs) and the few layers of material are used with the grain in perpendicular directions, more layers the better (min two).

As sealed box is still better though. Even an old biscuit tin / sweet tin / tobacco tin would do, but it is a bit thin so keep it further into the house.

Friend of mine got a pouch off Amazon which seems to work perfectly. Cost him around £10 I think.
