  1. Thanks lads. Not so long between drinks next time, okay?
  2. Cool. 8am works. I'll bring my 3 year old fuel sender 😄 Thanks Russ
  3. $495 is a great deal. I did my pads and rotors using OEM gear order from UK at https://www.design911.co.uk/ It cost a little over AUD$1000 shipped for all the gear.

  7. Touche For future reference in case anyone else has the same problem: Contacted Scott at www.radar-mirror.com who will repair my mirror for A$99 + $43 postage. Problem solved.
  8. Thanks guys. Bob, as I understand it Audi and Porsche share the same part. The trick is to find one with the same mount that matches wiring and plug for electrics. Raven - been surfing US sites for a replacement. The usual suspects (Pelican, Suncoast) don't seem to hold them. I think the trick is to identify the supplier, which seems to be Gemtex and buy direct. Will continue with eBay. Great advice.
  9. Looking for any advice. My 997.1 interior auto dimming rear view mirror has developed an issue. It has an oblong shaped distortion inside the lens probably something to do with chemicals inside the lens. The car was idle for 2 weeks parked in the garage and fine when I last drove it so not a heat issue. The OS forums would indicate this is not an uncommon problem and probably needs the mirror replaced. I called PCBrisbane and the spare parts dude claimed to never have replaced a mirror in Australia and not seen the problem. The real problem is that PCB want $998.00 to supply a mirror. Wondering if anyone on the forum has had a similar experience and if there's a cheaper option. Pic attached. TIA
  10. Edgy, our A1 just reached that point in October and I thought long and hard about extending. I opted not to. The car has been a great performer and the figures just didn't add up. I felt the cost to extend was over the top. I think they're still a gimmick not dissimilar to extended warranties they try to flog off with appliances. Ultimately, it's a gamble. You take it and you're gambling something will happen, Audi is gambling it won't. Even with it, if something goes wrong, you're at the whim of Audi as to whether the defect is actually covered.
  11. I'm familiar with 'that petrol smell creeping into your cabin' Chris. Funny. I'm completely unhelpful I know...
  12. You can get them off without rear bumper removal if you have access to a lift. It'd be a bit of a squeeze otherwise. After having now done it, removing the rear bumper is really only a 40 minute job, even for a noob like me. It wasn't as complicated as I thought it might be and it all went back together easily (german engineering at work). I followed the guide on Pelican. It did make it a lot easier to get the mufflers out and gave me a chance a clear out a bunch of loose stones\gravel which had been trapped and rattling around in the rear wheel arches. It was an enjoyable project with minimal effort. I've found the mod doesn't affect the db levels on idle (great) but produces a fantastic note in the range of 3k-4k rpm. I don't think you'll be disappointed.
