  1. Whats going on in that last photo? Hack the panel with a Stanley Knife and rig up 3 red wires. What the??
  2. Takes balls to drive fast on those slippery roads. One hairy moment at about the 2 min mark. Nice sound from that GT3RS. Makes me want to get out and have drive right now.
  3. Thanks everyone, I have taken out two policies on both cars thru MB Insurance. Very competitive quotes and they cover everything I needed (plus more) with choice of repairer and agreed value. Excess is good too. Now to cancel both APIA policies 😀
  4. I had a scratch in the windscreen when a million to one thing happened and a stone lodged between the wiper blade and wiper blade mount and scratched a nice big arc. I took it to a windscreen repairer and he polished it out in no time for a reasonable cost.
  5. @dan_189 are you both saying that MB Insurance (QBE are the underwriters for them) are the Porsche insurers as well and that they do offer agreed klms? I had my MB insured with them until last year but now that the car is 4 years old the premium was too much and agreed value dropped substantially. Used to be new for old up to 3 years, now my Benz is valued by them at $44,000 (not real good). APIA insure for $64000 and premium $100 less and less XS. I will get a quote on the Porsche from Porsche Insurance though just to get a comparative quote
  6. I know this question has been asked before but I am seeking insurance advice. My car is insured through APIA. I called them today to ask what would happen if I had a bingle, would they allow me to take it to a Porsche Authorised Repairer? Bottom line no. I would have to go to their repairer "Capital Smart". I am not happy about this so I am thinking of changing insurers mid term and cancelling my APIA cover. I see Shannons are part of the same Capital Smart program as well so forget recommending them. Ok recommendations please. I want Agreed Value, Choice of Repairer and Windscreen Cover. Limited milage discount would be good too. Has anyone used Porsche Insurance? Were they reasonable in price?
  7. @dan_189 I am sure that this would spray up to a very nice black if you could not live with the silver. Or even better get it wrapped in Black
  8. Unsure about the Cayenne but a friend has a Macan Turbo MY16. He took it in for a service the other week and they said we need it for 2 weeks to repair a leak. Motor out I believe. Was advised that it was not an "official" recall. Nod nod wink wink know what I mean, but looks like they are looking at all Macan Turbos and booking them in. Sounds like a recall to me.
  9. All I can say is GLWS at this price. Probably needs a very very in front of GLWS. The movie the Castle comes to mind. https://www.carsales.com.au/cars/details/2018-porsche-911-gt3-991-auto-my18/SSE-AD-5964834/?utm_campaign=search-alert&utm_source=notification-center&utm_medium=email
  10. Who in their right mind would take out an interest only loan on a $400,000 car to try and flip it for a profit. Surely nobody is that stupid.
  11. Yep I feel that $200K is the price the .1's will sell at. Especially this one with 40000 klms. Too many people worried about the engine issue even with the 10 year warranty (which now has only 5 years remaining on this car). I wonder what the trade in price is on these, $180,000 or less?
