  1. Yellow on yellow (cf brakes) with extra yellow (dials). I really like this! Apart from the wing... I assume that’s not factory, and also not hard to get back to standard? https://www.carsales.com.au/cars/details/2005-Porsche-911-Carrera-S-997-Manual/OAG-AD-18172310

    Wheel Paint

    I did some Googling but like you could only turn up online options... I think I remember a few years ago when I last had a guttered wheel repaired (must have been my wife's car, I would never do such a thing 😁) the bloke who did it was using Wurth paint... Perhaps calling someone local who does that and asking them would get an answer?
  3. They’re magicians! Paint was already pretty good on it but it’s like new now. Wheels look amazing after cleaning and sealing and they restored the headlights, which someone saw today and asked me if I’d replaced them with new ones. Best of all I think is the seats which also came up like new when they went over the interior. I’m very happy with it. Going to collect a USB drive of pics from Mitch showing the process, when he’s sorted through them. Hopefully some before and after in there, as I forgot to take any! Here’s one I snapped on the phone when I got home...
  4. Well spotted! 😁 I'll have to find them on Instragram! They did my wife's new Tiguan when she picked it up recently and I was really happy with it, so thought I'd take the 996 in for some love...should be done today hopefully.

    996 Mk1 GT3

    No worries. I was just kidding about sending it back btw. Give it three months and I’ll have forgotten I sent it anyway 😂

    I’ve got a copy here somewhere I can send you, good for it to be stored with a Mk1. If I ever buy one you have to promise to send it back though 😂

    996 Mk1 GT3

    I found that at some point in time it really flipped for me. I went from finding the 996 interior just dated to really nicely retro. Not really sure why, just one day I peered inside the window of one and instead of seeing an AU taxi, I saw a simple, old school, retro cool interior that I really liked. The lack of "technology" helps here I think. In a ten year old car you wonder why the sat nav is so small, the graphics on everything is terrible and if you find a USB port, it just reminds you there's no CarPlay to listen to your favourite PodCast anyway... Not in the 996, none of it sucks, because none of it exists... 🤣
  8. Holy shit, that looks awesome!!!! So good for something like that wind up exceeding expectations. Can’t wait to see it in the flesh one SMT!
  9. You’re a market mover mate 😁... From 4 -> 1 left for sale between your post and today!
  10. Sorry if I missed it but don’t think I’ve seen this discussed yet: https://www.carsales.com.au/cars/details/2004-Porsche-Carrera-GT-Manual/OAG-AD-16384512
  11. Sounding impressive: https://www.motoring.com.au/porsche-taycan-turbo-and-taycan-turbo-s-2020-review-121001 With stunning straight-line performance, handling prowess never before exhibited in a production battery electric vehicle, proper fit and finish and concept car looks, the Porsche Taycan Turbo and Porsche Taycan Turbo S will change the way you think about electric cars. Although the price to play will be steep, these four- or five-seat four-doors are very much Porsches first and EVs second.
  12. Yeah that’s been on my list of things to do for the same reason (having no idea 😂) @GC9911
  13. My only major concern is if for some reason you needed to do a big adjustment mid corner, I reckon it could be a bit of a hand full, especially if the road was wet.
  14. Yeah, I assume it’s still better to have than not, but would love to see a test of old and new and see how it really performs still and be able to answer that question. I thought about it quite a lot for the same reason as you, for when little ones are in the car occasionally, and still do sometimes. I guess my not entirely satisfactory answer is to just be as aware as I can and drive very much under my limits at the moment. It will make for a great excuse to tell myself if I want to change the car though 😂
