  1. 952 is simply right hand drive(and 951 LHD), not M44/52 engine. It is a common misconception but both cars are 952's. any part unique to RHD turbo parts have 952 part numbers, regardless of year or engine and hence why rhd are 952's. Alll common parts to both LHD and RHD are 951 numbered. Bridge spoilers were fitted to 1990 models Jason how old is the child (?) as under a certain age/height, an airbag will cause more harm than good and why small children shouldn't be in the front of cars with airbags. It's not a 968 spoiler , its a bridge spoiler fitted first to late 944 turbos. Might help when you are searching for them
  2. Auto's are the red headed step child of 944's. They are not worth anywhere near what a manual is and very sluggish. The transmissions can be expensive to fix too. The NA isn't very fast in manual form but the auto will be a lot worse. With your budget(as stated above) can get you a newer 86+ oval dash car that has much better lay out and better AC and other features. Take your time and buy the best example you can find and ask as many questions as you can. That may be a great car but its unlikely to ever be worth much and will send you backwards if it needs anything replaced as just as expensive for parts as any porsche. Martini stickers add 5 hp and do look cool but it's an auto
  3. no idea when it will be available locally or how much but will certainly look right https://www.autoblog.com/2019/07/21/classic-1980s-blaupunkt-car-head-unit-back-in-production/ https://www.maxim.com/gear/blaupunkt-bremen-sqr-46-dab-2019-7 <<<with pics https://www.blaupunkt.com/en/nc/products/car-multimedia/car-radio/products/single/19059/
  4. Thanks for sharing. I keep my engine bay pretty clean but will be giving it a once over for a car meet on saturday, so seeing this was great timing
  5. No I will keep them just in case. TBH the superlites have grown on me, so I am in two minds about going back to fuchs.
  6. If fitting 17" you need to change the castor block on front to 968 unit and there was a Porsche bulletin about it. I assume you got wheels sorted. I intend going back to the super rare fuchs but am running superlites atm
  7. Visit to nineauto, had a few red cars there A visit to Olivers Hill Frankston A bit further down the hill
  8. Yesterday dropped into nineauto to wish the team a merry Christmas, and thank Stuart for his help getting my car sorted. Fresh wax and painted the tyre letters on the michelins.
  9. A project I have been working on for a few weeks is finally(well almost as I have some ideas) finished. I made up a real carbon fibre panel to hold the display for Zeitronix ZT2. It is custom mounted behind and gives real time display of Lambda and Air Fuel Ratio, Exhaust gas temperature, and Boost/vacuum. The panel is sprayed with a 2 part clear with Porsche logo embedded under it The black billet switches with white Led lighting control ejector seat, number plate flipper, machine guns front and rear The lighting on switches was way to bright, so have fitted a variable dimmer on them, so I can dial it back until it is just right.
  10. I got a complimentary upgrade to my rear plate surround form the good people at NineAuto, which I was quite pleased about, as I couldn't be happier with Stuart and the team there
  11. I did some paint correction on Sunday. I used Adams correcting polish and then Adams revive polish followed by a coat of Zymol Red Wax. I did it all by hand using the hand pads Adams sell, as I don't have a polisher yet. Still has some slight swirls but it's a huge improvement to how it was and am really happy with how it turned out

    Remus vs fabspeed

    I have Fabspeed on my 952 and love it. Great sound(and doesn't drone ), improved transition to boost. The workmanship and materials are exceptional. Looks great and built to last.
  13. Cheers Steve. I am really excited about the change. Yes that is my baby, now to be driven past in South Yarra lol Maybe one day I will get to Porsche but am going to give BMW my best effort and having now driven an M2 and M4 I am really impressed with what great cars they are, and so much more fun than the cars I had access to in my last job No doubt it will be tough but I hope great service, and knowing my product, will mean I am successful. Only time will tell Happy to help if the Beemers fit your needs. I heard that Tesla doesn't employ any sales people, maybe they give them another name or do things a bit different which wouldn't surprise me. Cheers Scashin. I always loved the E30's and e36's, they, like our cars, still look great today Thanks mate, and happy birthday again lol Cheers Chris, I hope so too. It was a big call to pull up stumps and take a chance but the place has a really good vibe and great staff, so I think it was the right move. It certainly feels right
  14. Hi PFA'ers When I am not driving my 944 turbo, I have been making a living selling Mitsubishi. I have done this for the last 6 years but have now moved up to BMW. I now work at South Yarra BMW, so let me know if I can help any of you in anyway. Obviously would love to be at Porsche but it seems no one ever leaves, when they work there lol If you come in, just ask for me and mention PFA and I will make sure I do my best to look after you or feel free to send me a PM Bruce
  15. Obviously a very hard decision too make and no doubt much soul searching has been done to get this point but having done a similar thing(not create a beast lol), I found the time passed a lot quicker than I thought it would. Anyway all of us saying don't do it probably isn't helping, but you have built an awesome car, so I guess we are all just hoping we can convince you to keep it because we know creating something like your car isn't easily done, and would be very hard to replicate a second time.
