  1. @MR901 in Melbourne for one more night, flying out Thursday afternoon- let me know if you want to catch up
  2. So there is a heat exchanger in the heater box, plus two at the front of the car. Removing the dash is a two hour job, no special tools required but there are a few tricks. Get the air con guy to highlight where the leak is first. Both jobs you can tackle yourself if you have mechanical aptitude and some tools. once you know where it is - you can make a plan. I can help you - share detailed instructions on both - as I have tackled both jobs.
  3. You do need an air con technician to let you know where the leak is. There is a dye they place in the oil / gas that is seen with infrared light. If it is evaporator they will advise which side etc. Your front end is same as Boxter, so no big cost. You will need to remove bumper, etc - it’s not a difficult job if you are a bit mechanicaly inclined. Bumper will need to come off to correctly diagnose leak in any case.
  4. Once you’ve had black, there no lookin back @hugh
  5. Some good advice, if it sounds to good to be true - it usually is
  6. @Harold996tt no worries, we will catch up eventually
  7. @Nevdog69 If you press here above, the links are there. If you are interested I have a very nice pair of 993 cams.
  8. Hi Gents @Harold996tt @MR901 I am in Melbourne 2nd to 5th & again from 16th to 19th. Let me know how that works with your calendar- staying in CBD and have a hire car.
  9. Sounds good, I will have a look at my bookings on Monday and advise
  10. Wow @Harold996tt that is amazing and a really good idea. If you are in Melbourne in 2 weeks let me know, I may be down there again at that time
  11. @edgy haven’t tried the Trofeo R
  12. @edgy Cup 2 is crap in wet, only grip once hot. I would rule them out as an all rounder. I have been interested to watch the input before I made s comment. Based on what I have seen, stick with Yoki’s. @edgy Cup 2 is crap in wet, only grip once hot. I would rule them out as an all rounder.

  13. As I mentioned to Matt, he is a significant part of the cars history. He was very happy to know the car was being cared for. He campaigned it with his father and said it was an amazing year. Great story. He had a scrapbook of that year which I took some snaps, he will scan and send. Plus a picture of the car with #1 on it. He was running around with Webb, Luff and a few other well known drivers. 2002, seemed to be the rebirth of Porsche Cup. Prior to this he was running with Audi factory in super tourers. Just shows we are only custodians of these cars not the owner really.
  14. Another update on my car, caught up with Matt Coleman while down in Melbourne and he shared some fond memories and some history of my car.
  15. @Stew F agree on the harsh ride. I missed my old 265 RS that much so I just bought a 275 Trophy R - what a great car. It is about 95% of the thrill of driving a 996 GT3 for 20% of the price. Its rarer also, only 250 produced globally and 50 of those were delivered here. We are the lucky country 👌
