  1. No need - I think it's well-known view, but not usually applied to RSs etc. - the MFI offers a certain glow to those cars which overshadows the shortcomings of Mg engine cases etc. I just think it is interesting to have seen the commentary change over the past 20+ years or so that I have been in this hobby (first Porsche was a 924 Turbo at 21). Perhaps a little revisionist history is in play, as the aircooled cars become more desirable and in vogue (therefore more expensive), thanks to the new blood entering the market and (of course) the self-promotional capabilities of various outlaws. Just a personal observation - nothing against 2.7s personally and I like the narrow body G series look too.
  2. Yes I had understood it was mainly an issue with the thermal reactor US market 2.7 - still the 2.7 has always been the red headed step child (no offence to the gingers). I forget - are the cases Mg or Al?
  3. Amazing how the historical issues with the 2.7 are apparently no impediment nowadays.
  4. Absolutely - they are an eyesore and are a challenge to remove without damaging the anodising. Not impossible though - patience, a wide flat blade in a cloth or a wooden/platic implement, some metho and TLC will do the trick. The black centres and the anodising will come up a treat with some Vaseline though - you'll be surprised - they will look like new.
  5. Well done - next to get those wheel weights off the anodising and put some Vaseline on the wheels like the manual says! Hope the PPI checks out - SCs are great. PK
  6. Oh FFS $62k for an auto - really!? Nice epoxy floor in the garage though - just finished painting mine with Jetdry (an acceptable finish, considering the less than perfect slab, but this is the interim garage reno, after all!).
  7. OK, well maybe I have high expectations of other people, but in my view a seller is a douche for not keeping his word. I also take a dim view of the list / withdraw / relist routine - usually at an increased price. Frankly, when I see that I hope the car sits (and happily it often does!). Lastly, what is with people not wanting to deal with interstate buyers - if the person is willing to put on a deposit and do everything else reasonably necessary to proceed with the sale, why would one care where they live!? Sometimes people really shit me haha. Glad I am o/s and was not involved, as it all sounds disappointing. Onward!
  8. Wish it was - too late off the mark for that one! Someone got an absolute bargain - looks like a nice straight original car. Maybe we will see it listed by a dealer or flipper again in the near future!?
  9. Well that is not your average SC is it. Gold plated tools - a winning combination of taste and practicality. Noice.
  10. I agree that Carsales pricing is often nonsense but am curious about the rationale for your market forecast. Personally, I'd prefer that these cars weren't thought of as investments in any event, but if so, a sample of one probably isn't emprical evidence...
  11. Ole may be waiting a while for his 997 cabriolet at this rate. I always wonder about the 'these cars are appreciating' blah blah sales pitch. If it's such a good investment, why sell!?
  12. I'm really not sure what people expect when they place an advertisement like that - doesn't leave a great impression of the vendor. Since when did it become the norm to play around with the price once the car is advertised anyway!?
