  1. Yeah true! I thought it was at least priced right-ish (with room to negotiate)... but good point. Must be still a daily driver but also must've also dropped the price after you and probably others have spotted those things. All makes sense now...
  2. Surprised this 981 CGTS in manual has been on the market for quite some time. Would have likely snapped it up if i hadn't bought a car already! Currently advertised at $125k https://www.carsales.com.au/cars/details/2016-Porsche-Cayman-GTS-981-Manual-MY16/SSE-AD-5598662
  3. It went online yesterday I believe ? This year I've seen these advertised between $70k - $80k, similar year and kms. Most were auto. Just catching up on this thread, I owe some of you guys some PMs! My apologies for the slow reply. I have been busy with my new non-P car this year (a manual BMW M2 LCI).......but have recently put an EOI deposit down on a 718 Spyder... may change that to a 718 GT4 depending on the announcement.
  4. Hey @MrMud, did you just sell your 981 Cayman S manual? Think it was the one I noticed in Carsales! If you did, congrats! Assume you are upgrading? :)
  5. I finally got to see your old car in the flesh when I was down in Melbourne about a month ago! Interior is in great condition, loved the seats, very nice place to be. Exterior paintwork is in pretty good nick too, only some minor swirling as can be expected in flat paint. Here's a MANUAL 2015 Porsche Cayman S in white for any of you looking for a unicorn: https://www.carsales.com.au/cars/details/Porsche-Cayman-2015/SSE-AD-5359156/ My prediction is that this will be the only manual 981 Cayman S being advertised this year so even if it's not your colour and you've been waiting for ages, grab it and wrap it if you can negotiate a better price than $150k. Otherwise, get a GTS! A few of you have kindly PM'd me to see what was happening on my end. Sorry for the delay in replying, been busy travelling and with work so I'll be posting an update in the next week or so.
  6. Thanks @NBTBRV8, I did notice this one and thought it looked great with the turbo rims and the WA dealerships tend to price them a little lower too. Honestly sometimes wish I did not *need* to have a manual LOL. I'm sure you've already seen but your old flame is on the market yet again and back at Melbourne! What the... https://www.carsales.com.au/cars/details/Porsche-Cayman-2016/OAG-AD-15620259/ GREAT value! The PDK Boxster Ss are fantastic value right now, and there seems to be a lot of supply.
  7. One might argue the GT4 is a bit too "hard core" for the road, especially if one might not ever plan to track it, and the GTS is more suitable as a daily driver or road car. The extra $20k could be invested or put aside for maintenance or other enhancements. Or it could have even been just personal preference, i.e. body kit, colour, wing, etc.
  8. Haha! I need something to upgrade to when the price is right (for me) This one was much better value than the others priced $15k more!
  9. Very nice cat! Congrats!!! Perfect upgrade. Sold (again)! (Not to me yet...)
  10. Haha... "Don't nick that bro, it's an old fart car... doesn't even have a D mode!"
  11. You might want to be careful about looking around the site any further. It doesn't just have rims, there's plenty of other Porsche goodies as well Nice one Looking forward to seeing your new ride.
  12. Yes completely agree with you. So long as it's manual, everything else can be retrofitted. Even the colour to an extent although much easier to get it in the exact colour! She sounds like a keeper and you're having lots of fun with her!!! Would be great to see photos after the detail, she'll come up stunning! Have you checked out this site for used Sport Techno rims? I think we pay the ex-VAT price...but likely we would need to pay customs/duty/GST when it lands here... https://teile.com/en/porsche-tequipment-shop/model-Cayman-981C/33/Wheels-Rims-and-accessories/Wheel-rims/219
  13. Porsche Addicts Anonymous... "Hello Everyone, my name is KMan981... I'm currently 1 year 6 months..." Read through your thread @Ian718, congrats mate! What a journey and a ride! Glad you got good service from PCSS. Nothing's come up there for me but the sales guy I deal with has been more than helpful even if not necessarily getting a sale out of me any time soon. I'd be glad to give him the business though, most of them seem to be a good bunch and offered help whenever I'm in the area and drop by to perv at the cars.... just to get a whiff of that new Porsche smell
  14. @MrMud Sorry, feels like I'm following you around the forum! Ah that Sapphire Blue one was another member's car who was on the thread earlier asking for the going rate. They priced it well and I noticed it sold pretty quick so good on them I'm still hellbent on a manual and will not compromise on that. I would love a GTS but the boss will only permit budget for an S or base. No space issue, I wish I had that problem. My garage is ready for my future queen to live in Got a brand new security door installed for the garage and moving all my tools and garden stuff out of the garage to my new manshed so that the garage is empty for her! The family car will get some paint protection and demoted to driveway living... Have you done any work to your car since you bought it? p.s. What do you guys reckon this base Cayman's worth? Low 80s ex on roads? / 85k inc? https://www.carsales.com.au/cars/details/Porsche-Cayman-2015/OAG-AD-15526579/?_ga=2.144231925.1907827529.1515996047-1845606059.1493024225
  15. Hi David, I had not quite given the '15 & '16 sales drop much thought, but you are spot on. A well optioned S was right on GTS money. Can you imagine a GTS with all the options you have? The mind boggles. @MrMud@nytelfer Both of you gents got GTS specced S's so you both got great deals Yes, definitely seems to usually be one on Carsales. That black one has been around for a very long time. There seems to be a lot more manual Boxsters and Boxster Ss around. I'd be keen to ask the gentleman at PCA for the Cayman base and Boxster base vs S numbers but I think we'd be very much pushing the friendship Thank you again for sharing the figures. This is the only place in the whole world with the stats, how cool is that?! Save up for GT4s or order new
