  1. Since when did you need brakes Lee? Let me know if you are gong to Clarendon tomorrow.

    Hey Lee, How come all your photos of the car are from the same side????

    Yeah....but it looked good!!! Take a couple of days and drive it over...good way to get to know the car!
  4. + 1 on Mark Buik or otherwise Mark Poole at RSR Sports..
  5. Happy to meet you and you can drive mine up to Hahndorf tonight mate.....just to get the feel of a good 996!
  6. Sounds OK on price given the engine work. I bought my 1999 C2 in mid 40's then had the IMS solution, brakes, and a few other things "while they were in there", so buying one with nothing done is not going to end up cheap. The car I bought had Aero Kit and GT3 suspension but would owe me around what this one is advertised for. Manual 996's are getting harder to find so this one looks to be "reasonable". I think Lee should buy it...

    I agree! You only need 2 FAT ones for the rear.

    Best I have ever seen it look Lee!! Looking forward to seeing it in the morning! BTW, I just had a look online and GOH2O number plates are available...perfect for the 996?

    All things insurance

    My 996.1 is insured through Porsche Insurance. It was cheaper than Shannon's etc and seems to be as good a coverage as others. Of course, I hope I never need to find out what their claims procedures are!!
  10. Looks fantastic! Hope to see it on a local drive in the not too distant future.
  11. I went for a drive up to Lobethal in the Adelaide hills today to get some specialist paint for my wife, and damn me, the shop was closed! Looks like I have to do it again tomorrow?

    Looks like we may be meeting up with MFX in Hahndorf one evening next week if you are available. Thread started yesterday or Monday..
  13. And when you fold the rear seats down, the dog fits in....bit tight in a Cayman!,
  14. I had a good look at it and took it for a drive when it was first advertised. Back then he would not negotiate on price and then wanted to take the original wheels out of the deal to drop the price marginally so I lost interest. Never got to a PPI stage and ended up buying a car in Melbourne. When I looked at it he had not had it serviced for a couple of years as I recall, but had done under 20,000 km since previous service so he believed it did not need one.

    Congrats! You will love it. Every time I drive mine I get more attached to it! Just had the front & rear bumpers painted this week. Once you are back we should do an ADL Drive with the other PFA Members!
