  1. Selling used cars on consignment is illegal for Victorian dealers (licensed motor car traders), but legal in NSW and most other states (e.g. legal in WA, QLD and TAS) Does anyone know why it's illegal in Vic?? I have heard plenty of rumours about the Melbourne prestige dealers selling on consignment behind-the-scenes, and also service specialists. But it seems weird that it has to be clandestine. If I wanted to sell my car on consignment, couldn't I drive it to Sydney and park it with CTS on consignment, and if a Victorian buyer wants it the car then comes back down here? So in effect a consignment sale in Vic, but through a NSW dealer?
  2. Yes agreed, by “like-for-like” I meant also with the same options. Thanks again.
  3. Thanks for the replies. @MrMud would you expect a like-for-like 2012 car to be a few grand less than an equivalent 2014 model? Or same price?
  4. Hi, I am researching to buy a 981 Boxster, and trying to understand if there is any difference between a 2012 and a 2014 model (both PDK)? Thanks for any help
  5. 997 GT2 Clubsport unicorn with only 6,000km! Price I believe is around Sg$190k mark. http://www.kiwiauto.net/car-display/?car=9295&stockno=KK+6102&used-car=Porsche+997+GT2+Clubsport%2C+530+hp%2C+Only+6%2C000+kms%2C+One+of+28+RHD+MY09's%2C+Terrific+Investment+Potential.+Call+for+details.
  6. Update to this; the proposed % figures have since been released; "Currently cars worth $66,331 to $100,000 are taxed at $10.40 for each $200 of the car’s value. Under Victoria’s proposed tax, buyers of cars worth $100,000-$150,000 will pay a duty of $14 per $200, and buyers of cars worth more than $150,000 will pay $18 per $200. A buyer of a new BMW 5 ­series worth $120,000 would pay an extra $2160, and a buyer of a new Maserati would pay an extra $7600." Ouch. Better get that next P car purchase in before July 1 then...!
  7. Rare and desirable track day weapon?! 2019 Porsche 935 'Moby Dick' (build slot - delivery July 2019) Priced at €1,500,000, double what the owner would have paid. No doubt he won't be popular with his local Porsche dealership. https://racecarsdirect.com/Advert/Details/102790/2019-porsche-935-moby-dick-19th-july-delivery Australian buyer beware; LHD, probably not road registerable in Australia, sale might fall through, possibly not able to import to Australia (although new rules coming in might make this an option), probably too expensive to take racing. But man, you would get a lot of cred rolling up to Phillip Island in this
  8. Hi, does anyone know whether Porsche Cars Australia originally bought in and sold the 997.2 Turbo in a manual? I can only find PDK's listed for sale currently on Carsales (4 of them), but cannot find a way to search 'sold' cars on Carsales (does this exist??) Thanks for any help.

  10. This was listed today at Dutton Garage, and if you read the Instagram comments it's sure to divide opinion. $200k with $10 in change The car was on show at the PCV Porsche Festival in Williamstown recently, very nice interior https://duttongarage.com/1989-Porsche-911-964-Carrera-4-Manual-Credible-Singer-Clone-~50255
  11. This is the response from Quad Lock support, sounds like it should be fine "You will be able to mount the phone in landscape position and the camera will be free from obstruction. It may work in portrait position too, but It depends on the size of the phone and where on the windscreen."
  12. Another question... does anyone know the rules for in-car camera mounts for CAMS events? In particular I'm attending the upcoming PCV Haunted Hills hillclimb event (which will use CAMS Hillclimb Regulations). There is a note above from @reddahaydn about zip ties? Thanks!
  13. Hi @Dave986, did you end up buying this? It looks great, but I am wondering whether the mount obscures video recording through the windscreen? Thanks
  14. Hi, hopefully someone here can help. My 964 (1990 C2) has been blowing 'dust' out of the ventilation ducts on start-up now for sometime. I've had the car serviced at two local Melbourne trust-worthy Porsche experts, and it even has them stumped. Has anyone experienced this before? At the servicing, the dust issue improves after proper blowing/sucking through the ventilation system, but after a while it returns. The 'dust' is a white / grey colour - a bit chunkier than real dust. Not a lot of it, just a fine powder that sprays out on start-up. Thanks for any help.
