  1. welcome to the 911 hunt, I too was a long time Porsche enthusiast, my fascination started with the lines of the 993 coupe many moons ago! Anyway late last year I sold my low k E92 M3 and started hunting around for a 996/997 manual, coming from a BMW there was a slight temptation to take the easy way out and get a much newer M4 for the same money, which is roomier, more up to date etc, but obviously is NOT a 911 !! I went and test drove a couple of manual 996's which are now excellent bang for buck, however my heart really wanted a 997. I contemplated for a bit to wait for the 997.2 PDK to drop in price and funnily enough when I stopped looking (what sometimes felt like an hourly ritual on carsales) one Friday night I noticed a nice black manual 997.. I went and looked at it on the Monday and picked it up on the Friday. As many have said on here once you get a good feel for the owner and his car sometimes you just know its the one ill let my grin give you some inspiration, good luck with the hunt!! Cheers Kris
  2. If it checks out it would be a bargain, have you called the guy to feel him out, get a vibe on him and his car? etc (ill respond to your thread tomorrow when I’m back on my laptop and pass on my two cents as I too had the 997 vs M4 dilemma recently...! )

    Manual 996

    When I was looking for a 996/997 I spoke to the owner, my major concern was the car has minimal service entries and no invoice records of any type. The owner said purchased he the car from his mechanic and assured me its in top condition. I wasn't prepared to get a PPI as my value for such a car is in a different ballpark to owner. Hope this helps !
  4. Love that colour! Pretty sure it was same one that was advertised late last year by a fellow that was moving to the US. It dropped as low as 67k, then it sold... I was half tempted but being a kms nazi (don’t judge me) and it being in QLD it wasn’t the one for me.
  5. Thanks very much mate, I’ll keep them in mind! cheers kris
  6. Hi team, Putting it out there if anyone has any OEM 19" wheels to suit a C2 997 Carrera? Cheers Kris
  7. There’s a thread in the water cooled section off the forum called “Melbourne tyres” one of the members mentions there’s a directive in the handbook not to mismatch front and rear tyres...
  8. Correct, old mate saw my WTB post and made contact. Tad frustrating he didn’t want to disclose his asking price and only wanted “my best offer” for a 20 year old car personally I don’t put a lot of extra re-sell value on all of the options.
  9. Theres a manual 997 turbo for an extra 5k and you actually get a Mezger engine 🤣

    WTB 911 996/997 C2

    Hi All, Putting it out there if anyone can assist with any intel on 911’s that may potentially be coming on the market before they hit Carsales, gumtree etc Chasing a: 996/997 coupe prefer C2 manual solid service history under 130k located in Vic however will travel for the right car! thanks in advance kris 0409 052 760
  11. Assuming you saw the atlas grey manual S in QLD, had 145k on it it, last price drop was $66,990?? auctions are funny things, will be keen to see where it ends up! pretty risky without having the opportunity to perform a PPI...
  12. I know I’d prefer to know a car is on the WOVR before making the decision to cough up the cost of a PPI??
  13. I was waiting for photos and it’s now showing as being snapped up?!
  14. Now on Carsales, I think the patchy service history hurts it at the high end price point? wont go lower than 48.5 https://www.carsales.com.au/cars/details/2001-porsche-911-carrera-996-manual/SSE-AD-6358850?utm_campaign=search-alert&utm_source=notification-center&utm_medium=email
  15. The black one on gumtree? https://www.gumtree.com.au/s-ad/unley/cars-vans-utes/porsche-996-coupe-6-speed-manual/1223099096
