  1. I ended up getting it done. New motor fixed it. Expect around a $1600 job if you get someone to do it.
  2. Looking good Alan. Decent amount of extras you picked up on your way out of the body shop. Which exhaust did you end up getting?
  3. Yep, same issue here and have been living with it for awhile now. It's unfortunately the motor unit that contains the logic board. I'll be replacing mine later this month. You can tell it's not your switch by the fact that it worked for a little while after re-learning.
  4. I've guessing you've just got the stock halogen (non-optioned) lights not the HID/Litronic/Bixenon version which was an option on the 996.2. Mine came with the bi-xenon and they work fantastic. I would think that if you can get yourself a litronic set they might almost just be plug and play.
  5. @wilburforce I'm running the TUV sound which @dan_189 is referring to. They're quite nice and give a bit more note without shouting which is really good when you're trying to roll in somewhere silently at night. Just a little more noise until about 2k and they start to pick up and also give a slight throttle overrun noises Dam @dan_189, that sucks about the cats, but explains your lack of noise.
  6. He's not on here, check http://www.casconeautosport.com.au/ for contact details
  7. Check the prices at your nearest Costco. They've been known to stock the Pilot Sports at crazy prices from time to time - not sure if they're getting rid of old stock or Michelin promo's with Costco. I'd buy them there if you've got a good price and find a good tyre guy to stick 'em on your wheels.
  8. Looked clean from a far, but I guess you're thinking it's far from clean Sounded good too
  9. Just thought I'd follow up on this thread with the outcome. Ended up using Victa from Umbrella Towing. He was the easiest to deal with at the end of the day as he just gave me a price and did it, all the rest messed me about soon as I try and to make a booking due to car height So if you're looking for good old fashioned owner operator type service then check out Umbrella Towing - https://www.facebook.com/UmbrellaTowing/
  10. Your budget sounds about right for a series 1. Series 2 you'll probably struggle a little. Remember to buy the best you can afford, not the cheapest unless you're willing to accept the rule of thumb of putting twice the dollars down later in repairs (whether it turns out to be the case or not). I think you would have a high probability of buying trouble with a manual coupe under 40k unless you were expecting to do all the work on it yourself and have a hoist. Keep an eye on this thread for possible candidates -> https://porscheforum.com.au/topic/13105-996-values-coupecab-manualtip/ Good luck with the search
  11. @Philbee count me in for the convoy. See you in the morning
  12. Interesting. I'm on the fence as well. Maybe needs a little more hot rodding.
  13. Sounds like fun. I'm hoping to come along if I can escape the family.
  14. Interesting to hear the comparison between the launch of an F1 and the 918. Definitely gives it the beans.
