  1. Some good advice here. But my 2c is to be patient - 986s aren't exactly uncommon and you can afford to be choosy. What is it about the car you're looking at that has you keen?
  2. These might come up okay refinished? https://www.facebook.com/marketplace/item/292932212784538/?ref=search&referral_code=null&referral_story_type=post&tracking=browse_serp%3A810b5d78-d924-4212-9890-b60b475aa7be
  3. I saw it in *Jason's* workshop just before paint went on - fantastic all metal bodywork!
  4. ^^This - my car goes onto a C-Tek trickle charger and remains unlocked. I also found a good set of instructions for moving the respective emergency cables from their factory ridiculous locations to accessible locations for actual emergency use...
  5. You can try to access to the Engine compartment Battery Jumper lug - using the rear (left Bumper access) emergency cable and jump start the car. Remove three screws - one up in the wheel-well and two at the bottom of the bumper. The cable "should be" between the heat shield and the plastic Bumper cover just ahead of the left tail light. You should be able to charge sufficiently (or jump to a charged battery) and then use the fob to open.
  6. I wonder just how different it would be? I'd punt on it working for a 996.1, but maybe not for a 996.2...
  7. There is a left one here... https://www.gumtree.com.au/s-ad/east-brisbane/auto-body-parts/porsche-996-carrera-911-front-left-guard-wheel-liner-982809957g/1294692379
  8. Losing your partner and child must be devastating RIP. I just don't know how I feel about IoM TT these days. It remains a truly stunning race that truly meets the actual definition of "awesome". It was once a bucket list for me, but now the almost certainty of a fatality puts me right off - as an ex first responder I do carry some scars and maybe I'm a bit more sensitive than some (I also lost my dad in road accident when I was 13). The sheer sense of dread these guys must put their immediate family through, for me at least is too much - and very unfair, and I wonder if its not really just plain selfish to indulge your own needs at the expense of your kids (as it seems to be really common with riders being young dads). But I'm a 'pro choice' person, and hate government nannying so I'd hate to see it ruined for those that have made their choices. We know Australia would never allow it - Targa is on it's way out, and it's been 20 years since bikes raced at Bathurst.
  9. You could re-groove those and get a few more kilometers
  10. Every other country seemed to get some fantastic 996/997/991 hues. You'd think Porsche Cars Australia colour pallet from 2000 to 2015 consisted of Faber Castel's best HB 2B 3B 4H and 7B before someone remembered to chuck in a white and black pencil.
  11. I'm about $200k short... All I can do is look
  12. You shouldn't have sold it at all. Just driven and enjoyed it...
  13. Local to you https://www.gumtree.com.au/s-ad/kallaroo/cars-vans-utes/1998-porsche-911-carrera-2d-coupe/1296278654
  14. Unfortunately Porsche Cars Australia has gifted us with a decade or more of Silver variants and Black. Colour was special order only 😕
