  1. Past hour
  2. Pretty much as the Title specifies - Left side Litronic Headlight for 996.2 (came out of my 2002 C2). Very small chip on the corner - per photo - only on outside of headlight unit, hasn't impacted trhe integrity of the light units them selves. Not sure why insurance co agreed to replace it, but they did!!! Smattering of very minor stone ships in surface as will any headlight that had done 100,000kms, but none serious. Over $2k for a new one, have seen other second hand ones for $1000+ $850 + postage / freigh t from Tassie for Forum members. May consider serious offers.
  3. What do we think of this one? 997 4S, Manual, 31000 klm's, $119,000 https://www.carsales.com.au/cars/details/2007-porsche-911-carrera-4s-997-manual-awd-my07/SSE-AD-6664887/?Cr=0&gts=SSE-AD-6664887&gtsSaleId=SSE-AD-6664887&gtsViewType=showcase&rankingType=showcase
  4. Finished off install of Continental 7412 stereo in the GT3 today. Couldn't work the new-fangled Kenwood thing that was in the car when I got it, and it didn't look right, even when I managed to find out how to change the display colour to orange. I was trying to make the install more complicated than it had to be by working out what what wires I'd have to change and all that, when I realised the car plugs that went into the old harness, would plug straight into the back of the Continetal. Dooh!! All I had to do then was run the wire for the remote microphone (which was the hardest part, requiring removal of the side vent unit - thanks YouTube), plug it all in and it worked. Easy Peasy in the end. Also "101 Projects for a 996" was also a useful publication to refer to.
  5. 30 year old Chinese women in a Porsche? 😄 they can't even drive or park a Camry! 😁
  6. Today
  7. Just a bit of additional context to the discussion around annual salaries, here is a link WRC drivers salaries for 2020; https://www.sportekz.com/money/wrc-drivers-salaries/
  8. These podcasts are a pretty good insight into life behind behind the scenes for these sports people at the top of their game. One wrong move, o,r if they don't have a chance meeting with someone who has been watching them for a while, or, recommended by a friend of a friend and we wouldn't of even heard of half of these people. All the racing guys talk about the millions they would have to throw in just to get a drive for a season. Incredibly cut throat game they play, no one wanted Casey he was the crash king at one stage in his formative years in Europe. I had a friend whose son would beat him in many races but didn't "sell the farm", I often wonder if he did where he would be now.
  9. Thank you If you get any mdf with green stuff in it....the ivy from my side
  10. Didn't get that far, I stopped at the legs.....
  11. Yesterday
  12. And also a 1979 Datsun Sunny GL with 612kms on the clock 🙂 Doesn't quite compare to Rusty French's 996.1 GT3 CS with 125kms though.......
  13. Looks like this Cayenne was "Recently Sold" but has reappeared for sale. Its hard to take the owner seriously.
  14. Talking to PO yesterday, seems it sold a little sooner than he'd planned 🙂 Going to Melbourne apparently.
  15. Both dark colours, the Targa was in very poor light, don;t think it was black but was either dark blue or dark gray I think, so probably either Blue Pearl Metallic, Ocean Blue Metallic or Black Pearl Metallic. Anyway I'll take a photo of the Vin plate next time and you can see if you can dig up something from that
  16. 81SC

    911 wiring harness

    Have you thought about contacting some of the Porsche wrecking yards in England? I'm sure there would be some expats here that could help if needed. A quick google search came up with a couple. https://www.douglasvalley.co.uk http://www.porschebreaker.com
  17. What was that about good photos to sell your car. https://www.gumtree.com.au/s-ad/gepps-cross/cars-vans-utes/2003-porsche-cayenne-s-6-sp-automatic-tiptronic-4d-wagon/1248984730?utm_campaign=socialbuttons&utm_content=ios_VIP&utm_medium=social&utm_source=com.apple.uikit.activity.copytopasteboard
  18. Well I guess that depends how many people bought Renault’s because of the increased exposure Dan brings to Renault compared to boring hulk! He’s a very marketable guy.
