  1. All good in theory. But committed is only as good as a court case to enforce that commitment and the buyer having funds to pay the purchase price. And a 10% deposit won’t be much good if the market has dropped more than 10%. Also best to make sure the agency agreement provides that the agent only gets their commission on a completed contract, not just an exchanged one, otherwise you’ll be sharing the deposit with them
  2. Just bear in mind with a long settlement that if the market drops a lot you might find your buyer less keen to settle and looking for ways out
  3. I have a 2015 Macan S and would recommend. Can solve space problems with a roof box (gives me more room than our Kluger). And being able to extend warranty to 15 years a big plus. if you are only going to keep a few years and can extend the warranty past the initial year, wouldn’t CPO make more sense as then you don’t take in the initial depreciation hit?
  4. You seen this one? https://www.carsales.com.au/cars/details/2001-Porsche-911-Carrera-996-Manual/SSE-AD-6266330?pageSource=details&id=SSE-AD-6266330
  5. I’ve got a ceramic coating (opticoat) on mine. Cost about a third of the pricing you are looking at for a wrap. Repels water well and makes washing easier - even had a bird pop once that peeled off from its own weight. But can’t see it offering the same scratch or chip resistance that a wrap does. So if peppering is your problem I would wrap it
  6. Looks like @disco ‘s old 996. Doesn’t seem to have done many kms since he sold it but Quite a bit down on what he sold it for. Nice looking car for the money https://www.carsales.com.au/cars/details/2001-Porsche-911-Carrera-996-Manual/SSE-AD-6266330?pageSource=details&id=SSE-AD-6266330
  7. Pretty sure sunroof on 996 was standard - I don’t have a 650 on my 996 options and I have a sunroof. Sunroof delete on the other hand would see a code.
  8. What about trying a clay bar with the detailer as lube?
  9. So my wife got a flat rear tyre in the Macan and didn’t notice. Now needs a new tyre as she killed the sidewall ($439 for a 21” Michelin). Question is does she need to replace both rears? The other one is six months old and has 7,000kms on it (at least half of which is highway). Looks ok to me. Tyre shop said we should think about it but won’t advise either way (helpful!). At $439 a tyre I’d obviously prefer not to.
