  1. Thanks Dan, might be a good opportunity to get another key programmed if I go to PCM. Anyone got any experiences with alternative rear tyre choice compared to PS2's in terms of cost/performance/longevity?
  2. Thanks Peter, I'll give Darren a try.
  3. It's rear tyre/alignment time and apparently my usual tyre man (Rocky at Donellans in Collingwood) has moved to Perth so I'm looking for a new man, any recommendations, preferably inner-ish north east-ish? I'll be replacing 18" Michelin PS2's which were great but didn't last long, so any recommendations for alternatives appreciated too.
  4. Watching the vid felt a lot like going to the dentist.
  5. Sold for 41k, which one of you lucky buggers got it?
  6. Very nice looking aero kitted Mk1 coupe with low k's, seems reasonably priced: https://www.carsales.com.au/cars/details/Porsche-911-Carrera-1999/SSE-AD-6026913/?Cr=2
  7. Yes I think so, and rebuilt the engine I think...apparently to 3.8...interesting to the know the details on that.
  8. Big price drop on this one...I can see a Jethro clone candidate... Lee? https://www.carsales.com.au/cars/details/Porsche-911-Carrera-1998/SSE-AD-5946190/?Cr=0
  9. C'mon all you lurking X51 owners, page 51, now's your chance to excite/bore us all rigid with how awesome your fancy bits are and what they're worth.
  10. I wouldn't be too concerned with 1km of corrugated dirt road... has the car lived there all it's life... has the owner done multiple trips in the Porsche each a day, or once a week, or a couple of times a month... have the corrugations always been there? I had a girlfriend who lived 7k's up a dirt road... the first trip out there in the 996 I was freaking out... but I soon stopped worrying, the 996 is a very solid, well put together car. We've since broken up and as far as I can tell apart from a bit of extra dust in the engine bay there's been no obvious detrimental signs...to the car, that is.
  11. Nothing to worry about Dave, I bought mine off ebay, sight unseen, no books, nuthin', 3 years in and I love it even more than I did at the start. Had to put a bit of coin in at the start but since then, 20,000k later it's just been regular maintenance...but oh boy if you drive it, which you will, they do chew through rear tyres. Going to Hangarbanger really made me appreciate the 996, whereas a few years ago taking the 996 to a Porsche event I felt like the fat spotty kid at a new school. Now I think a nicely stanced/shod early 996 coupe in a good colour combo is one of the nicest looking 911's...there you go I've said it!
  12. Wow good on you Dave, what a deal, looks very nice. More pics please and deets on the 3.6? engine rebuild, when you're ready...NOW!
  13. One would hope this is a preliminary draft, if not it's a whole new level of crap ways to advertise a 911...$32k manual coupe...or not...'Please call to confirm the final price of the vehicle'... https://www.carsales.com.au/cars/details/Porsche-911-Carrera-2000/OAG-AD-16949513/?Cr=0
  14. Does cable throttle work on a 3.6? The way I read it it's the original 3.4 engine that's been rebuilt... reckon the 3.6 references are a typo. Quick phone call would sort it... but it's more fun speculating whilst sipping a cup of tea in bed. Engine mounts are a 1hr job.
  15. Looks to still be cable throttle. I reckon the 3.6 reference is likely a typo.
