  1. I’m like you, I have a real soft spot for these, and if/when I make a change from my current car this would be pretty high on the list. The black one has been for sale for ages. Two white ones less. Maybe a month to six weeks for the manual, bit more for the PDK? Just a guess although if you’re really keen I probably have the Carsales notifications from when they were listed that I can dig out. All priced a bit high I think compared to some recent sales but not crazy. They’ve held their value really well so far, but I honestly don’t know if that will persist forever. Not many around and I love them but I think most people fall in the “expensive Boxster with an annoying roof” category... 😂
  2. Some people seem to think everything is a scam and everyone is a crook, I suspect it's because they themselves are, and assume everyone else is! 😂 I've bought a few low km cars and it's so obvious when the condition supports it or not...but for the sceptical, I saw in your Carsales ad you have the books and service history - If that's been at BMW, and you don't already have them all, perhaps a call to them to ask for print outs of the actual service invoices (which would have kms on them) would add some weight to the authenticity for people?
  3. Yeah, he seems to be one of the few non-wanker car reviewers on YouTube! Always look forward to his stuff.
  4. This was a good watch on the Boxster GTS, and at the end he sums up the differences to the Spyder...
  5. Good on everyone getting involved and for you organising @turboT... I would have been really keen to do this but have a little one's birthday this weekend, with some family coming from interstate for it, etc. Have made a donation to https://www.gofundme.com/f/fire-relief-run just now instead. Hope it all goes well.
  6. I read that yes, this was the case, in a thread here somewhere a few weeks ago.
  7. Argh, painful! Definitely could have been worse though... Assuming it had a few before, at least you'll have a stone chip free bumper after this!
  8. I find those statuses can be flakey sometimes on Carsales, especially if you don’t get an email notification about the change... I often look a couple days later and it will just be listed again as normal...
  9. That’s what I thought! 😂 I drove mine from Adelaide to Sydney over two days, and I was shocked at how comfortable it was, especially for a 20yr old car. One of the better long haul drives I’ve ever done. I wonder if the seats in his are “gone”?
  10. Also on Carsales. I thought I remembered a PFA member having a blue one with X51 kit? Can’t remember a name though... 🤔

    Lowndes in a Porsche

    Well worth getting hold of a copy if you can, it was really interesting and much more candid that I was expecting. I thought it would be pretty tame 'press release' type stuff but a lot of it was really open... You're not left in any doubt over things like what Horner thought of the Renault engines, or what Cyril thought of Horner! 🤣 Interesting insight into Ricciardo's move to Renault and a heap of other behind the scenes stuff. Maybe I didn't watch enough to have a complete gut full of the commentary team. I'll check in with you again end of 2020 with an update 😁...

    Lowndes in a Porsche

    I was of the same mind for many, many years... but, the last half of the 2019 season, immediately after the winter break, really had me glued to it... Such a turn around! Really interesting races. Before that, I don't think I'd watched a race (other than a bit of the Melbourne and Singapore) for years - but I watched every single qualifying, race and even quite a few of the practice sessions in the last six months... I also really enjoyed watching the "Drive to Survive" series they had on Netflix. That was a bit of a master stroke for pulling fans who haven't really been paying attention back in I think, I got straight up to speed with the new teams, drivers, team principals, and what was going on since I'd last taken notice, and that added to the great racing. Sensational stuff that I hope we get more of next year, and more again when things get a shake up with the new rules in 2021... Especially if the rumours of Ricciardo going to Ferrari pan out... As for V8's, I think they're just flogging that dead horse as long as they can to get back what they paid for the series a few years back... I can't stomach it at all any more, from the cars to listening to the drivel of most of the drivers and the commentary...
  13. I noticed this on Carsales this evening. I assume it’s not your car @James P ? They really do look great in white! https://www.carsales.com.au/cars/details/2007-Porsche-911-GT3-997-Manual-MY07/OAG-AD-18344207
  14. I’m not sure about advertising but https://duckandwhale.com.au/ would seem to fit the bill (pun intended 😂)
  15. I re-read an Aussie review at the international launch today which mentioned these would start arriving in November... Has anyone received theirs yet? I was thinking about popping in to a dealer while I'm on holidays and have nothing better to do, and see if I can spy a Spyder in the metal...
