These were given to me when i had my 996GT3 Apart from that they are honest and may suit someone looking to do a brake upgrade. Will need hardware but all the bits and pieces are not hard to source and are not that expensive, its just the pads and unfortunately I don't have those. Part No: Front 996 351 429 and 996 351 430 Part No: Rear 996 352 425 and 996 352 426 $750 or make an offer

  6. My front lip was the same when I bought my car from Dutton’s, it didn’t worry me at all, if any thing it’s worse now, it’s a consumable, who cares. I tend to think those cars that have been tracked tend to be taken better than a non tracked car ( because most GT cars never see the track ? ) I know with mine if I hear or feel or see the slightest thing that doesn’t look right it’s in to PCM to get looked at. Last service @ PCM it was serviced by the motorsport division, they said it had seen track work but it was one cleanest ones they had seen in a long time ( car hadn’t been smashed on the ripple strips etc ) These cars are bullet proof and being 10 yrs old you can’t expect the perfection, just jump in occasionally, leave the radio off and enjoy the symphony! I only need to drive mine for ten minutes to put a massive smile on my face!!
  7. I'm up for a drive in the near future, get that rev counter bouncing around near the red zone once again, hasn't been there since Tassie this year!!
  8. Hahaha!! Thats funny, tell me was the clutch letting out high?? Mine is a letting out a tad high in my 07 GT3, got it book in for its annual blood test etc in a month @ Porsche Center Melbourne. I also needed to shop for tyres at the start of the year, it had Pzeros on her all the way around, fronts were hardly worn but the rear were nearly on the belts ( could be something to do with the way it gets cained out of the corners ) i decided to replace with Pzero aswell but opted for the Corsa Assymetrico option, Faaarck me they have some grip, had her in tassie a week before targa this year and it was wet, the mechanical grip from them was absolutely amazing, great choice of tyre!! Thats mine at the front of the pack
  9. A very good friend of mine whom is a current GT3 RS owner has told me that he has heard that there will be a GT4 RS and has his name down on one
  10. Hi Oldmxnut, I would definetly want to be to be strapped in tight, whether it be with a harness bar or cage, I have a rollcage in my car ( 997 GT3 CS ) and use the harness on the track, do not have a hans device. I would like to say that I am a more cautious driver on the track now, actually going slower in this car around Phillip Island than my 996 GT3. My point is, place a harness bar in the car, run a harness through the seat ( if possible ) over the shoulders, a 4 point harness is ample and will keep you in tight, you just want to stop sliding around in the seat, keep you strapped in nice and tight. Enjoy the car!! I don't know how good a driver you are, but i know i will never push my car to its limits ( i think the car laughs at me when i drive her ) just jump in and enjoy because you will have an absolute ball and if i can give you one more piece of advice, get instructors to jump in with you, you can never stop learning!! Enjoy your amazing vehicle!!
  11. Hi Oldmxnut, I'm going to put my two cents worth in. If the new car comes with what i think is a "comfort" seat then there is no provision to run harness through the seat which is the proper way. You don't want the belts coming around the shoulders it will not give you much protection at all, if anything stick to the standard seat belt, it just means you will move around a little in the chair. If the seat comes with provision to run the harness through the seat, bang a harness bar in there they work well are reasonably priced compared to factory cage price and can be removed relatively easily without any evidence of it being in there if you ever go to sell the car.
  12. Lucky @ Abbotsford Body Repairs 16 Thompson St Abbotsford 94288167 0414360600 Have had a number of different cars go through him from my own 996GT3 to my L'Cruiser ( did a door in similar circumstances to you ) and my parents cars and have never had a problem. Easy to deal with and the work is outstanding. If he asks about recommendation, tell him Peter from Camberwell Market
  13. Well done and hopefully there's congratulations in store for you Dom Good luck with the pre purchase inspection
  14. Hi Dom, The same dealer had my first car up for sale last year it was a '85 911. It was still factory correct car for its age wit an amazing history, maybe its just one of those things, it it falls into the right hands and they just want to keep it original as possible it will stay that way. Is that price that there holding with on roads or on top of??
