    Detailing my 944

    top job
  2. With 997's in the 80-105 range and that was a 60k car .. insane
  3. Well we know some of the a/c cars go 230+ and many commonly advertised on carsales. I have had a 3.2 at 285km (No rebuild and pulled like a steam train). Some of the partial rebuilt cars are hitting late 3's in mileage too . There is no real reason for the 996 to be any different, Im sure Porsche didnt build with a premature end of life in mind for that car , it aint their style , well no more than any other car they create. Even when faced with a decsion of creating an economic entry level car a 944/924 there enginnering quality shines even they are kicking on and good cars.

    My New GT3.2..still waiting

    Bummer on the points @Oldmxnut, would be great to see one of these new cars in the flesh …and organise a drive North or you and the other new owners come South .. I know some good blast routes . Quite possibly also better on the demerits. Nice to read your impressions and gain insight of @sleazius gear to gear testing regimes..

    Importing Porsches from the UK to Melbourne?

    HK and Japan still options to source RHD cars…. I can tell you Australian beaches and the salt air , can do as much damage as the UK salty diet. I also think unless your doing inspections by drilling holes and scope and or cutting some sections with a plasma cutter you will not get a true indication of rust, especially in older cars. This would go hand in hand with a bare metal stripping if you want to be really sure. For some UK cars you will find that they would have by now gone through full resto , where as many our local cars are just holding in there. Dont kid yourself if you think Aus delivered is some kind of magic….. no rust prayer, its a matter of time. .
