  1. Yup, glad we agree! 😬 i just haven’t seen the disparity in our “real world”
  2. Does anyone know if there is any circumstance this is an available option for Australian customers? From what I can tell it ceased to be available in the early 2000's, probably for tax purposes? Cheers
  3. Are you implying there isn't much difference between the .1 & .2 RS? Because I've been called out for saying the same as you, and then the ole Nurburgring argument comes out! 😛
  4. I think the 997.1 has a timeless look, its a very nice looking car, always was, always will be... and you are right, the 996.2 is looking better with age, I also think the 996.1 is starting to out edge the 6.2 too in the looks department... it used to be the other way round (I preferred the 6.2 look over the 6.1) 100% agree... having owned both, that is accurate, actually there are times I sit and think about the differences, and the 996 probably stands out more as the "classic"
  5. Let's see what they really end up selling for...
  6. It's definitely regional... I learnt the hard way, if you want to die, do the speed limit in Chicago! If you prefer to live, drive with the locals at 20 mph over...
  7. https://www.caradvice.com.au/766897/porsche-718-boxster-spyder-and-cayman-gt4-revealed/ 4.0 Litre capacity too
  8. Love the dad-tronic but it needs matching plates...
  9. I drive quite a lot in the states, the general rule there is; 9 your fine, 10 your mine they generally just drive to the pace of the traffic flow... I like it a lot better, some cities are better/worse than others but generally I find its a really good place to drive. In Europe (well notably Germany) I like the etiquette, if they see you coming in hot, the cars in front generally move for you... in Australia, they like to drive 10 under the limit in the passing lane, then proceed to mouth off at other motorists that dare pass them (in the left lane). Now I've definitely had my fun on Tassie roads... I am sure giving mainlanders a bad wrap! 😛
  10. Here is the current 997 offerings... Mr Black, appears to be a 003 - $185k ... looks like a good one to go to the track with? https://www.carsales.com.au/cars/details/Porsche-911-2007/SSE-AD-5097400/?Cr=4 Mr Red, non 003 - $169k ... this is cheap, why is it still for sale? https://www.carsales.com.au/cars/details/Porsche-911-2007/OAG-AD-17193250/?Cr=5 Mr Yellow, non 003 -$214k ... well presented and encourages us to wash our ones once in a while, cos they look great when they are actually clean! https://www.carsales.com.au/cars/details/Porsche-911-2007/OAG-AD-17251094/?Cr=6 Mr white, 003 car - $210k ... started at a cheeky $235k, perhaps the time on the market and pricing suggest its not an urgent sale? https://www.carsales.com.au/cars/details/Porsche-911-2008/OAG-AD-16749478/?Cr=7 Mr? How shall we call it? Mr OG since 2016, non 003 - $225k ... no new comments on this, I am sure I've said it numerous times over the last 3+ years. https://www.carsales.com.au/cars/details/Porsche-911-2008/SSE-AD-4047460/?Cr=8 Mr white 997.2 and the only one now on the market - $250k ... only gen 2 car on the market currently... the rest seem to have been removed or sold https://www.carsales.com.au/cars/details/Porsche-911-2009/SSE-AD-5967528/?Cr=9 Prices are all over the place at present... but it seems 7.1 cars priced at sub $200's are moving... not sure on the 7.2's
  11. And that's why I mainly cook at home... If we eat out, its either cheap ass (but good) hole in the wall joints, or I'm spending it, to do it right were I know they deliver... most the stuff in the middle just isn't worth your dollars or time! e.g. for your $60~ you could buy some very good quality beef and grill it yourself and have change. I know I am not telling you anything you don't already know, and that its nice to support local businesses, but for me, more often than not, they just reinforce my feelings on the matter!

    Cayenne 92A purchase

    It is my understanding that most those issues were ironed out by the facelift 9PA.. as for the other issue, I'd have a search on the Cayenne section on Rennlist forums.
  13. If I didn’t have my 2.5 car.. I’d of been on the phone already!
  14. That’s so cool! 👍 Perfect budget track rat Porsche, and ready to go... I’ll admit it’s tempting!
