  1. Seems reasonably priced. The car park pic makes it look like the front bumper has been resprayed?
  2. It’s been there for quite a while. In my experience, Carsales seems to resend notifications of “new cars” when they’ve been sitting for a while....
  3. Carsales emails are pretty random for me too.

    What kinda hose you got ?

    I bought a new Gerni not long ago, with a much MUCH better hose on it than the old one (which had the cheap shiny crap hose that always coils up and generally just does it's best to give you the shits) on a sturdy reel, and I have to say it's increased my Car Washing SatisfactionTM levels at least 300%. You should definitely do it. On another note, now that there appears to be an officially endorsed PFA hose, how long before I see an ad on Carsales noting "only ever serviced at Porsche dealers and washed with Hoselink hoses"??? ?
  5. Nice C4S in Lapis Blue... Optimistic price though? https://www.carsales.com.au/dealer/details/Porsche-911-Carrera-2003/OAG-AD-16551013
  6. I'm bloody impressed that the car phone stayed on the hook... ?
  7. Ready for http://www.renegadehybrids.com/ (although they tell you to use an S)
  8. I’ve fixed that for you, based on the last post I read... ?
  9. Ahh! Yes, now I remember it. Cheers.
  10. Deja vu? Was it listed previously and discussed?

    Bathurst 2018

    So I guess where I reality differs to the outlook of a naive car enthusiast (i.e. me! ?) is that the manufacturers aren't that invested in it versus all the other sponsors. The current setup makes more sense when you think of it in this way. Hard to argue in some ways, has delivered close racing and they've done well to cultivate the promotion of drivers to create interest at that level. As you say though, a lot still hangs of the mystique of Commodore v Falcon, however far fetched (always surprised me how many people didn't realise the reality!) and needs replacing with something... I suppose the question is whether the team and driver 'brands' are strong enough to keep people interested when the cars change under that... I still want GT4/3 racing ?

    Bathurst 2018

    I’m just an armchair racer and don’t understand the financials of the category at all, but I’m increasingly unsure why they want to have their own bespoke platform for “Supercars” when so many manufacturers have GT3 and GT4 cars raced around the world? Surely switching to these as the basis of the series would deliver a nice mixed grid with a lot more interest from teams and manufacturers around the world? Who is interested in spending a fortune on developing a car that can only be raced in one very small market? Basically I suppose I’m suggesting killing Supercars and promoting an expanded version of Australian GT as the #1 category in the country. Maybe there’s too much invested in the way it’s setup today for that to happen...
  13. One addition (not 100% sure as I didn’t do it but based on when asked Porsche) that price for the sports wheel seems like the “worst case”. It’s less if you already have a wheel with a “round airbag” setup in your car.
  14. Just had a browse through their website after reading this ... Wow. Some really amazing stuff there!

    WTB - 997S manual

    Did you see this one just pop up today? Not sure as to why the bumper swap has happened (I always think ”accident” personally) and they haven’t colour matched it well, but it’s priced reasonably https://www.carsales.com.au/private/details/Porsche-911-Carrera-2005/SSE-AD-5655750
