  1. Welcome to the forum! A quick squiz on Carsales. There are currently 14 auto 996 coupe's for sale (excluding 4 and 4S) ranging from $39,490 - $57,888 with km's ranging from 76,200 - 226,000 km's. However 300,000+km's is quite high for a 996 so definitely would be at a significant discount. There are examples of some 996's that seem to go forever. Here's a 500,000+ 996: Here's a 389K km 996: https://jalopnik.com/i-dyno-tested-my-1999-porsche-911-with-243-000-miles-1788130306 That being said, I would be getting a compression test at the very least and if that looks good then perhaps Lee's suggestion of mid 20K tops. Keep in mind that a new engine or rebuilt engine is big $$ and a short term win on the price may turn in to much bigger $$ long term.
  2. Congrats. 928s are an awesome machine and I'm sure you will love it. Enjoy!
  3. Similar to above "Porshe" spelling. https://www.gumtree.com.au/s-ad/fremantle/men-s-bicycles/vintage-porshe-dragster-3-speed-stickshift-bike/1214736113
  4. Congratulations, and cool story. I had a to google what a Porsche Roof Transport System (RTS) was, and have never seen one on a Boxster. That is mint. Enjoy!
  5. Great post Simon. It's a question I've often wondered myself.
  6. How cool would this be: https://www.realestate.com.au/news/luxury-apartment-sky-garages-given-green-light/?rsf=syn:news:nca:dt:socref
  7. White '92 928 GTS Auto @ $75K https://www.carsales.com.au/cars/details/Porsche-928-1992/SSE-AD-5820089/?Cr=0
  8. +1 for Mothers Naturally Black. This is an excellent product on black rubber spoilers, tyres etc. I've been using it for years including multiple concourse events. Definitely more of a clean natural finish void of the artificial glow. The rear spoiler on my 928 S4 and whale tale, front valence and chin spoiler on the 3.2 Carrera always come up a treat.
  9. OK, I'll be generous here and round it up to an even $28K. Where do I send the money? 😂
  10. $100K UK 944T https://www.carsales.com.au/private/details/Porsche-944-1988/SSE-AD-4910554/?Cr=8
  11. Agreed. What a difference having the lift and space to work like that. I'm always scrambling on the ground under car stands and jacks. Very envious and lovely 914 you have there as well Airhead.
  12. ^^^ he states factory RHD and 140,000 kms. Looks really nice in that colour. GLWS (or purchase)
  13. I'm after tyres for my Carrera 3.2 as well, 15" x 7"/8". I'm currently running the factory sizes in Pirelli P6000s 195/65-15 for the 7's and 215/60-15 for the 8's (I think). I'd be happy with 205/55R15 fronts and 225/50R15 rears but struggling to find anything in stock. The Toyo T1Rs and Falken ZE912 in those sizes are all sold out at tyresales. Any thoughts on the best place to source these from in these sizes or preferred sizes?
  14. Here's what 250 big ones buys you (Canadian $ that is) http://www.autotrader.ca/a/Porsche/928+S4/Mont-Royal/Quebec/5_38545600_20150812092118987/
  15. Great story and welcome the forum. Lovely Cayman as well. It's always good to see another Perth forum member. Hopefully will see you around or at Cars and Coffee one day. I can't make Cars & Coffee this Sunday (daughters birthday) but here are the details in case you are interested: 8:30-10:30am Sunday Sep 9th, No.3 Carpark University of WA, Hackett Drive, Crawley. $10 entry to charity. and this weeks special......."Fifty Aston Martins will be the special feature among the hundreds of classic cars at Classic Cars & Coffee as a part of the AMOC national rally. Twenty of the cars are on their way already, driving across the Nullarbor! They will range from a 1954 DB2/4 to new DB11 with some of the most glamorous cars ever made."
  16. +1 but UK heritage aside, how many 3.2 Carrera's are sitting around with only 37,000km's on the clock. Not many I don't think. Yeah, yeah GT3 territory and all that......
  17. I'm thinking of sending both my cars to NZ and back as it looks like it adds a fair bit of value. https://www.carsales.com.au/private/details/Porsche-930-1980/SSE-AD-5624616/?gts=SSE-AD-5624616&gtssaleid=SSE-AD-5624616&rankingType=Spotlight
  18. Merv, I had an original 80s Eurovox serviced by Vas in Burwood Victoria, Vas (0419) 300 340. Not cheap but an expert at what he does. I'm in Perth so did it all by email, phone and post and all worked out well. He's an ex Eurovox tech but not sure if he services other brands as well. May be worth a shot. Best of luck
  19. and those wheels. I had to put on my sunglasses to check out the ad
  20. Nice car Andy. And that Ronin looks the goods. Now you've got me wanting a new toy!!
