  1. Thank you for sharing your experience. Even though painful for you it has confirmed that my prefered choice of repairer based on research is indeed a quality repairer. I hope I never have to meet them!! Congratulations on getting it back and it looks fantastic in the photos.
  2. Very close friend managed to do half an oil change on he’s AMG. Wasnt aware that there is a front and rear sump plug on these engines. (The two sumps are separated due to a cross member and oil is pumped from one to the other) He was confused as why it took such a small amount of oil to fill such a large engine!
  3. I feel in reality the 911 has been making a slow conservative march towards being a Grand Tourer. The Boxster and Cayman are the sports cars now this new design looks far more like a GT and looks the goods.
  4. Definatley one for @Nicco, whilst you would of been piloting around HQ’s your European brothers had these: https://petrolicious.com/films/1976-porsche-911-targa-dial-911-to-call-this-ex-police-car or was it FJ’s in your era 😊✌️
  5. Indeed, the Air Cooled ones kind of seep it !

  7. Good Grief I'm shocked positive words about PDK Once you really get to know it you will be even more impressed. Leave it in full auto mode without sports mode selected and it will poodle around like a economy hatchback. Select manual mode and sports plus and you will smile every time you nail it and shift up. This is the true genius of this box in manual mode sports plus it provides all the response and feel of a traditional manual car just significantly faster gear changes (which equates to the performance improvement over the manual) it also allows you to keep both hands on the steering wheel at all times which is a huge advantage through twisty tight mountain roads. Sports plus mode shifts make the overpriced sports chrono worthwhile! On a downside you do however loose the traditional involvement that a manual operated clutch provides.
  8. I cannot recall if ultra violet was PTS at the time. If it was there’s $10K straight up if that helps in the price justification!
  9. Thanks for the friendly Wave gents. I was out with some friends with mixed marque's Porsche & AMG Nice to see some familiar PFA faces and cars going in the opposite direction and also staying on the correct side of the road. Unfortunately the same cannot be said for some other Porsche Drivers yesterday. Come across some drivers on the wrong side of the road on Nayook-Powelltown road. You would think after coming across one car that they would pull their head in however nope, everyone that was following me had to deal with them. Note these were not part of the PFA run however their cars appear on photo's on a Facebook page for another event yesterday. Maybe it needs to explained that these are not closed road events!
  10. Back when the product was real Nakamichi, fantastic head units.
  11. I think I would of preferred to be Mr Eureka driving and Bolwell Those Dragway wheels are awful disliked them in the 70's and 80's still dislike them!
  12. Absolutely Ridiculous price to charge your customers for a $5.00 piece of metal a $2.00 piece of plastic and $10.00 worth of electronics. The labour and equipment costs to code it is understandable but the rest is over the top. If the blank and electronics was marketed at $200.00 you would cop that pay the labour and move on however $1k is not acceptable.
  13. In reality the dent is not the issue the guy I use would get that out easily. Its the paint thats hard to tell from the photo's. Red and Yellow are monsters to colour match, I cannot stress enough that you must discuss this upfront with your choice of repair centre. Previous comments about blending down the side of the car are pretty spot on.
  14. I think your onto something there Mike ! From memory the m96 Motor had two variants of the IMS Bearing the M97 motor used a larger IMS bearing which could not be simply removed when you split the Engine Transmission. I didn't think these later M97 bearings were cause for concern. Bore scoring seems to have raised its head on the 3.4 M97 engines. However with all of these things in real terms how many cars were effected and how big the issue has become perpetuated via online forums (like this one) may be two very different matters
