  1. Past hour
  2. I kid you not, I got offered a kayak for a bicycle I was selling the other week. WTF indeed.
  3. Today
  4. Looks more like Guards than Lava, but either way, a nice spec. https://www.carsales.com.au/cars/details/2018-porsche-911-gt3-991-manual-my18/OAG-AD-20178204
  5. Carsales isn't that bad, well not when compared to Gumtree or FB marketplace where people offer to swap you for a busted pair of roller blades and half eaten sandwich.
  6. If I sell it will be offered here. Not a chance I'd put a p-car on carsales. The only other option would be consignment through CTS or whoever. When the missus' has finished with her cars I usually list them about $5k above wholesale for a quick sale. The number of car dealers that call all offering the same price, some of them get super aggressive too when I say 'If I wanted wholesale I'd trade the car'. Then the tyre kickers coming around who want to rip me because I went 13 months without a service one time, or cause there is a stone chip on the bumper. Its already $15k under the next cheapest you wally, f - off. Never had one of her cars listed for more than a week though, so there is that.
  7. Thanks sounds good Also have vacuum filling tools if anyone else needs one.
  8. Thanks Dan, I read that article (and a couple of others) which is now 8 years old. I'm comfortable that I'll be pushing up daisies before the water pump bearings fail. The metal impeller version just makes sense to me and kilometers I do. I also wasn't actually able to find anyone with a 'first hand' experience of the metal impeller version failing and damaging a block. Raby has done some great work in the Porsche world - but I feel like fear of failure is what's making him rich sometimes. I'll double check the cap version I have - if I don't already have one I'll order a .04 through you. I also just picked up a vacuum filler unit from Sydney Tools for $50 https://sydneytools.com.au/product/daytona-drecoo-cooling-system-refill-kit-and-vacuum-purge I've taken the Penrite back for a refund, now just awaiting the Ravenol.
  9. Thanks for the assistance Joz. Couldn’t be happier!
  10. That makes two of us then
  11. It doesn’t matter how long you’ve owned it overseas you pay gst , lct and if it’s under 30 years old duty too . on anything bought within 6 months or so you are to use the invoice value , providing invoice and proof of payment and they do even google around a bit and check on what the car was advertised for on Occassion . if owned longer you can change to a local valuation method which can work in your favour if you find a licensed valuer who has a negative view of imports
  12. here is one at the auctions: https://www.lloydsonline.com.au/LotDetails.aspx?stype=0&stypeid=0&kw=911&cid=0&smode=0&lid=3139329
  13. A few more, now the engine bay is done too
  14. On of my late father’s pics taken in the Amaroo Park paddock in the late 70’s.
  15. A few were around the $300k marker .. very much the unloved cousin..
  16. I have seen a few of those advertised at fair $$ recently too... probably a steal in the market right now!
  17. I was thinking I could go full Hank Moody on it for the right price... good to know I could get a $3k rebate for the seats!! What's a headlamp worth?
  18. Your powers of persuasion are immense. The thing is, I’m actually going to a bigger factory...! Having acquired a transporter (naturally), the kids Karting trailer and a couple of race cars that I shouldn’t have ... Flat in surfers? Mmmm. I’m yet to hit 60 so not sure I fit the demographic. That and I’d see the same people there as I do when I’m here!
