  1. I had the same issue with my 3.2. It's a fine line between too slack, so that the part open stops don't work and them being too firm and adding stress to the mounts in the door. If the bumps on the strap are too thick, then you risk tearing the door mounts, which are very thin, then you will need to get them welded or make up some metal plates to sandwich the fractured mounts. So, definitely grind down the mounts with a file or grounder so you don't stuff up the doors. I have some spare check stops if you grind too much off. Good luck
  2. You probably all know this, but the standard large diameter 4 spoke wheel is offset such that when driving straight, it is jacked up to clear your knees. When turned 180 degrees, the wheel is at its lowest which can literally be a drag on your knees. So when fitting an accessory wheel, especially of a smaller diameter, part of the speedo is obscured, so most people rotate the speedo around so you can keep your drivers licence a bit longer. You tend to get used to the smaller wheel and the extra effort required, enjoying a better overall steering experience, in my opinion.
  3. I have this 360 Momo with correct boss for a 3.2 Carrera, so should fit yours too. It was a dramatic improvement over the standard 4 spoke large diameter wheel. Sadly I don't have a 3.2 Carrera any more, so no further use.
  4. I am after a quality, all weather car cover to suit a Boxster. Or can anyone advise of a good brand?
  5. Sold for $15,000 today to a local buyer. Painless sale, hopefully the new owner will be as satisfied as I have been. Suffering sellers remorse now.
  6. Hi Haydn, I have a RaceChrono with 3.5" touch screen, remote GPS with Bluetooth, original packaging, chargers, quick start guides. I used to velcro the remote GPS head on the inside of the back window. Lap times were identical to the Dorian timer results, gives good split times, comparisons, lines etc. No further use. Will consider trade for grandfather clock or calendar. Cheers, Rob 0419 419 424
  7. I have a MOMO 360 outside diam with a boss to suit a 3.2 Carrera. Not sure if it fits yours. Stamped TYP D36, KBA 70101 Unmarked and stitching all good.
  8. My insurer used O'Brien's for my '86 944 and they came to work, but brought a windscreen that was slightly too small!! The staff were great and sourced a correct size, but should have got it right the first time.
  9. Price drop to $15,500. Serviced items over the last two years include new battery, starter motor, cardan shaft, brake pads. Ph 0419 419 42 fore
  10. Suitable words escape me, however I'll try. I have never before used the term "fully sick" but that seems the most appropriate. Truly amazing, driver, nav, car and road.
  11. Looking good, enjoy the ride!! I too just joined the Boxster brigade and am very happy. They are a bargain for such a beautifully balanced sports car. At this stage I haven't had the need to change anything, but like what you have done. Hope to see you around!
  12. Know what you are talking about Lee. Picked up my sight unseen 986S from CEVA car carriers rather nervously, drove it to car rego office. Phew, all legal- its mine now, bolting the new SA number plates on(the man behind the counter asks what model my Porsche is. He rummages around for a while and presents me with 986 plates) A public servant who enjoys his work!!! I go to drive off and notice a puddle under where the car was parked!!! Open up the "boot"- check coolant level- nothing visible between high and low mark. @#$%&!!! What was I expecting without a PPI, idiot!!, Drive to nearest servo carefully while monitoring temp. Pull up at servo, check coolant level, still nothing visible. After a while, remove lid gingerly and happy to see it full of coolant to the top. It hasn't used a drop since, so all in my head. Emotional roller coasters, I'm over them.
  13. Congratulations on finding an excellent 996. I have seen the car many times at Porsche club functions and you would be going to find a better example. I think it may have won a prize at the recent show and shine event, it was at least a finalist. A few years ago, I did a similar thing, flew and trained to Newcastle and drove a '89 3.2 Carrera back to Adelaide for my first Porsche experience. What a buzz it was, still remember the exhilaration. All the best!!
  14. Offers anyone? Can assist with Interstate transport. Great for towing your track car or just feeling safe in your daily commute.
  15. Lee, I'm near the coast, in the ghetto half way between Semaphore and Port Adelaide.
