  1. The car you need is a 996 GT3. I’ve owned a few early ac cars from stock SC to a modified long hood RSR replica and an SC with great brake and suspension mods with an RSR look again which were all great cars. Also a 997gts which was my first Porsche, this car was beautiful in the mountains with pdk and by far the fastest thing I’ve had for the most forgiving experience. Just bang down the paddles on the brakes and turn it in , mash the throttle on the way out and gone. Lovely around town nice and sedate, turn on sport plus and changes to a proper performance car. Today I own a 930 and .2 996gt3 and this is how I’ve found it. As for the ac cars the 930 is the best of them they have that extra performance that the early aspirated cars lack and the wider stance makes them a lot nicer on the road as well. As for the gt3 it’s the best of them all , unbelievably engaging road or track , has the nosies and feedback of the early cars with aircon plus an awesome performance from the Mezger engine. Even at suburban speeds it still twitches down the road like having a race horse on a pony trail, it’s always there asking to go when your ready. Definitely the car I’d have if I had to have just one Porsche.
  2. LHD is easy, I loved the 3.0 Carrera on here a while back and didn’t buy it cause it was LHD since then bought a 930(LH) now I really wish I bought the 3.0 as well they are the easiest car to deal with in left trim and save thousands on Aussie rh cars
  3. Worst I’ve ever seen The selling dealer hopefully advised strongly against this colour choice 🤮
  4. Yeah cheap car especially with the $ conversion
  5. Can you bring a NZ car into Aus??? And register it??
  6. Definitely agree with what your saying, if they’re not helping it’s different I’m just saying as a general bit of advice. If the dealers not helping then making it difficult will soon change there attitude. I’m just suggesting to be flexible first may help. I hate it when people want to smash you for a mistake no ones perfect yet perception is someone needs to be punished. We deal with the public on a regular basis some are forgiving and we help beat we can then there’s the ones that want to abuse you at any opportunity and these guys can go fly.
  7. Everyone makes mistakes yet we all love to shout and scream and punish them for something as you say is not critical but it’s the principle. I think you’d get a better outcome trying to be a bit flexible this will help maintain a better relationship with the dealer and will probably make life easier down the track especially if you need a favour later. Shoot them now and you can say goodbye to any help later, be a little forgiving and will probably benefit you in the future . Remember they wouldn’t have done it deliberately and I’m sure they don’t want the stress of an unhappy customer either.
