  1. Congrats! That was a quick transition - 944S to C4S - interested to know your impressions of the 996 given your past P car experience. Cheap in today’s market, but it is a repaired write off. Hence I assume the .2 nose on a .1. Cheap 911 fun if it’s been repaired well.
  2. Good buying Craig. You’re going to love it. I too have had a very similar spec 996 for 4+ years and still love it. It’s always an occasion taking it out but also very easy to live with around town. Definite bonus for me is how relatively simple they are, if you’re a keen spannerer they’re pretty easy to DIY. What’s not to love.
  3. Wow, what a beauty. Can’t be many manual coupes with these sort of low k’s left I would imagine. GLWS
  4. Price just dropped on this. Looks like a good buy to me. UK car but some big dollars spent: https://www.carsales.com.au/cars/details/1998-porsche-911-carrera-996-manual/SSE-AD-6920675?pageSource=details&id=SSE-AD-6920675 Ideally they‘d go up when I want to sell and down when I want to buy.
  5. And I love cars like this: https://www.carsales.com.au/cars/details/1999-porsche-911-carrera-996-auto/SSE-AD-6924651/?Cr=0 That puts paid to the notion that the early cars are the 'problem' 996's. 322,831kms on the original engine. Polish up the headlights and it would virtually look like new.
  6. I must be a weirdo but I’d take a nice, no frills, early fried egg, 17” twist, cable throttled, dual row IMS, C2 over a C4S every time. I’ll get my coat.
  7. Wow, sounds like a seriously well sorted 996. Someone’s going to get a ripper deal here I think. GLWS Dave
  8. For spirited road driving at least I’ve never felt the lack of LSD in my 99 C2. My Alfa 147 GTA on the other hand is like a fully loaded shopping trolley with a bung wheel without an LSD.
  9. https://www.gumtree.com.au/s-ad/carss-park/cars-vans-utes/2001-porsche-911-996-carrera-yellow-6-speed-manual-coupe/1261353386?utm_campaign=socialbuttons&utm_content=ios_VIP&utm_medium=social&utm_source=com.apple.uikit.activity.copytopasteboard I’m very glad this exists. Wonderfully bonkers.
  10. Personally I love the silver with red interior, but I'd be changing back to original steering wheel, front bumper, car bra and rear spoiler quick smart... by which time you've likely spent $60K plus... unless those original bits come with the car. Then there's the 350bhp water injection, what's that all about?
  11. Nice pick up Andrew. Looks great, although I would say that, it’s almost identical to mine! 99 with clear front lenses in ocean blue metallic... metropol blue interior? Is yours cable or e-throttle? You’re going to love it, such an underrated 911. A decent exhaust and the orange cap intake mod transforms the driving experience. Interesting Porsche sticker placement. Hiding a stone chip?
  12. Good on you Capn, thought it would get snapped up, a comparative bargain when you look at the C4S bubble going on here. 😉
  13. I love this Michel, don’t know what the fuch you’re on about but I love it still.
  14. Nice one Jeff. Curious, how does the old dual row bearing feel now it's out? Assuming it was the original, how many k's on it?
