    symsy reacted to Andy73 in 964 Market Watch   
    You’re right on both counts. 996.2 GT3 is bloody great value. What a weapon. 
    But you’re also right - it’s an apples and oranges comparison. If values were only a representation of performance, I’d probably be driving a WRX. So much comes down to irrational considerations. For me, it was the 964 being the current shape when I really started to obsess about all things Porsche. I never lost that love and when the time came, a 964 became the only choice for me. 
     
    Yellow calipers and E88’s with black centers and that thing would look perfect!

    symsy reacted to smit2100 in AQUA WAX all your questions answered   
    I may have to get onto the aqua wax and use it in between a decent exterior wash that takes me approximately a lazy 4 hours (have a bad habit of starting after 10.30pm at night listening to talkback on SEN radio after a night match of footy) with some smells that remind me of being in a candy store.  In terms of getting the paint surface in good nick pre wax,  a decent process that has served me well over the years is  1) duragloss car wash concentrate (yes it looks and smells like red cherry medicine with a strong cherry scent),  2) then 3M blue clay bar (50 cent size piece) with small amount of  dishwashing liquid with demin water in spray bottle for lubrication and drying with a clean microbre cloth, 3) Klasse all in all one polish via microfiber cloth slightly damp, 4)  Klasse high gloss sealant glaze via dry  mircofibre cloth,, and then 5) a wax as top coat(poor boy's carnauba wax (blue and smells like blue bubble gum) via microbofibre pad applicator and microfiber dry cloth to buff it off.

    @Andy73 you should swap cars.  This would be the perfect arrangement.  Andy you get the Turbo you really want, and Fraz gets back the car he really regrets selling
    Make sure that she has my number just in case

    I’ve said it on the forum elsewhere but the only car I truly regret selling is my 996 Turbo.  To me, its still pretty much the complete package.  Your mods are great.
    I know I’m not helping.

    I honestly dont know Phil. My car sounds like a piece of shit so I find it hard to believe they all sound like mine with a spring centre clutch. Otherwise this issue would be as famous as the IMS. I will eventually source a rubber centred one from the UK.

    Mine was pretty badly corroded. Had it vapour blasted at Autohaus and it cleaned up well but badly pitted.
    Because the fan is the hero of these cars, I spent quite a bit of time filling the pitting in both the fan & housing with J-B Weld. Lots of sanding finishing with wet & dry.
    It was quite a lot of work but came out a treat. Had it all Cerakoted and it looks better than new and will last a long time.
    Re-cad plated the pulley & Autohaus riveted it back on for me.
