    Gratuitous Porsche Pics

    Is that 918 a RHD? ^^ Did they make a RHD 918? It's on the left of the road and she is standing at the drivers door and the picture is not reversed.
  2. Wow is this really off topic, but, my tile roof on the house is starting to look a bit tired. I have just had the ridge tiles repointed and any broken tiles replaced however the cement used to repoint is different in colour and stands out. The tiles that replaced old broken ones stand out too so I now think painting it will give the house a refreshed look and feel. I am therefore looking for recommendations or advice. I am Melbourne based on the Mornington Peninsula Has anyone done this? Does it last? Is it expensive? Any assistance would be appreciated as a new roof would be about $30K I guess.

    Phone holder - iphones etc

    These seem good. He uses them all the time and you see them in his videos. Price seems reasonable too https://stg-clothing.myshopify.com/collections/accessories/products/magnetic-windscreen-phone-mount

    I don't mind the look of this.
  5. I wonder if you can get the dial colour changed. I personally like red on black.

    I wish :)

    There were a few posts on this a year or so ago when it was found. Someone will remember how much it went for. I am certain it was in the millions

    What kinda hose you got ?

    I must be doing something different. I have used Nylex triple stripe non kink hoses and one of them is about 20 years old. Used it about 10 minutes ago and still good. I have mine on a good quality Nylex hose reels. I use Pope water guns with the brass fittings. I always roll up the hose onto the reel after every use. I hook the reel over the tap pull out the hose all the way and start using it. No kinks no problems. I have one for the front yard and one for the back. When I read "I am happy that my hose has lasted two seasons" I thought wow I would be disappointed if a hose did not last 10 years.

    The Old Ring

    I would have killed to see footage like that when I was a kid. I was besotted with F1 but there was just nothing like this to watch on Australian TV. My mum was really into it back then. She cried the day Jim Clark died. I used to build Tamiya model cars and my favourite was the F1 Lotus I had with Graham Hill driving it. All got thrown out though by my dad when he sold our family home. Wish I could go back in time and take them out of my old room before he cleaned everything out. I had a 12 cyl Matra and beautiful 917 Porsche too. Gosh I loved building and painting those things. I got one for Christmas and my birthday each year and I spent days putting them together.
  11. Was 1 mill 2 weeks ago. Dropping at $100,000 per week. At this rate in 7 more weeks I will be ready to make an offer
  12. @symsy @Mike737. If you two are willing I would be ok to drive Symsy's car to him and bring Mikes back as long as you guys pay the petrol and 3 nights accommodation plus meals I would do the trip. PM me if interested.
  13. Sorry for side tracking this thread. My advice to all who ask me now is "buy the highest standard spec car you can afford and do not add options", (Porsches may be a little different I know) as when it comes time to sell, options mean nothing in the scheme of things. Buyers compare car A with car B and the higher price for the one with options will in most cases lose out unless they are the same price. Always go for the model with the most bits included as standard when buying new. Now back on theme sorry.
  14. I remember a few years ago I was about to buy a Golf R. I was trading my GTi. I added all the options I wanted and instantly the car went to $80,000. The options added $20000. I asked why and it was because they all had luxury car tax applied. Unsure if this is still the case but I bet that tax has something to do with the high cost of options here. Like @DJM said it was enough to make me walk away. I ended up buying a C Class Merc instead. My first Merc. Best decision I ever made.
