    • Hi everyone, I've decided I should probably stop having too many cars & start saving for a house so the 944 really needs to go. I bought the car around two years ago from it's original owner. Yep - a genuine one owner car for 33 years! Manual gearbox & manual steering rack. Power sunroof. The 15" Fuchs are original to the car and listed on the options sticker in the boot. The timing belt/seals/etc were all done in late 2017. Many gaskets and all of the coolant hoses & vacuum lines are new. Genuine Beru ignition leads and a new Bosch coil. Every single electrical relay has been replaced with new genuine parts to make everything work reliably. Both crank angle sensors are new genuine Bosch parts. The clutch has been replaced with a spring centre unit a few thousand KM ago. There's a brand new hatch seal and the tail lights have been properly resealed with the original black tar gunk. The body is very nice and the paint looks great; but there are a couple of tiny nicks around it and it needs a new rear bumper cover as it's had a bit of a knock at some stage. It's a stunner of a car from any angle though. Interior is less great but completely usable. Chocolate over beige-ish colour combo. Dash has the usual fleet of cracks. Carpets would benefit from a good clean(but the new, matching, fitted floor mats are in perfect shape). Driver's seat fabric is separating from the bolsters on the lower squab - other seats are perfect. Most of the lights and switches work. The odometer works. Windows are quite fast and enthusiastic- no problems there. Air conditioning works well, surprisingly. The tyres have plenty of tread. The battery is new. There's even a spare DME relay in the glovebox. It's pretty much a turn-key-and-go car at this stage! I have a Dansk stainless steel sports exhaust - brand new - which has never been fitted which I'll include with the car if the buyer wants it. Apparently they sound amazing but I just wasn't motivated enough to bother putting it on(maybe I'm just getting old). Fully registered in NSW until November. Plates are currently "16BIT", I'll probably leave those on there. Located in the Illawarra area. All things being considered I'm inclined to ask $15,000 for it. Will be up on Carsales soon but figured I'd offer it here first. Any questions, ask away!  
    • no problem. I'm looking at selling by the end of the month so if you are interested let me know ASAP.
    • I dont know what music @Thommo66 is into but it appears to be mainly rhythm and blues with his preference for music from an air cooled.  Reckon he needs to add some heavy metal to his collection in the form of a Kline exhaust.  That stock one his got lacks bass, tone and decibels  strangles the mezger and doesnt arouse the Ecu sensors let alone your own. @ Fraz, reckon you need to hand your keys over to @Thommo.  His driving the wrong cars.  Reminds me of my  mate who looked at and picked up a car for me.  He didn't realise what he was driving and what the car was capable of.  Eg didn't  take my e90 m3  over 4000 rpm, left it in drive  and  as a consequence thought the car was pretty tame for a V8. Would't rate a stock 996tt that great of exhaust soundtrack or instaboosting throw you back in the seat experience.   Have to agree once a boost junky always a boost junky.  After the novalty of a non aspirated exhaust note wears off, you do indeed miss that shove in the seat whilst the only gauge you care about on the dash being the boost  gauge.  
    • Buy the oldie and stretch yourself for a year. See which one you drive more. Write down the reasons, the emotions felt and compare notes.  Then sell the the 2nd best or keep it!
