  1. Couple of issues: Where is the money coming from? Your super, company, personal account? This will affect how the in/out transaction is viewed. Make sure it’s not viewed as income when returned. My limited 2 bobs worth. Suggest you run it by your accountant first.

    Sorry, it’s just a mess, bit of Panamera, Cayenne, 718 & not much 911.

    Which GTS is the better buy?

    Phil, I had a 2015 GTS manual, which I traded my 2012 991 Carrera S manual on. I now have a 991.2 Carrera S manual. Observations, ( in no specific order) All 991’s handle much like mid engined cars when pushed, not the same as the Cayman but near. The 3.8 NA sound is way better than the 991.2, 3.8 NA has bark, 991.2 is rumble (both my cars have/had sports exhaust). In driving terms the 991.2 will kick the arse of the 3.8 NA all day every day, the electric steering on the GTS was better than the 2012 Carrera S but the 991.2 is even better, not the same as the hydraulic 997.2 I had but very, very good now. Brakes on the 991.2 are better. The interior of the 991.2 With the 918 style wheel is way better than the 991.1, touch screen also way better. You cannot drive either of these cars near their limit on the road (but you can push a little/lot), I find the 991.2 with the turbos giving full torque at low revs really engaging to say the least, different to the 3.8NA in that the 3.8 NA bumbles along until about 4,800 rpm when it’s like someone lit the wick & you’re in blast off. Both great cars, always capable & a pleasure to own. My suggestion, take them for a drive & buy the one you love, neither will disappoint.
  5. Car looks fantastic, how much are you looking for?

    What kinda hose you got ?

    Thanks Niko, Just went to the Hoselink website & they currently have 22% discount on hose reels & they throw in jet washer with orders over $150. Ordered 2 x 30mtr retractable hose reels.
  8. Send me your money, I promise I’ll look after it.
  9. Congratulations on your car. I have bought 3 cars through Grant, great to deal with.
  10. Hi Don, who are you dealing with?

    They need to move on from the Holden - Ford thing, neither are made here anymore, there is no local content. The whole thing is irrelevant as the Ford - Holden scenario was based on cars that the average punter could buy in the showroom, how many working “average” punters can afford a Camarro or Mustang? There was a mass appeal which is no longer relevant, I’m not sure the fan base has caught up yet with reality. Maybe there should be two distinct categories/series, one based on cars you can actually buy from the showrooms with classes as per the early bathurst 500 & one based on the 24hr GT series (IMHO of course).

    Great result, sugar drinks don’t rule afterall!
  14. I have a number of rules, but, my number one rule is “ do not put all the eggs in one basket” . Rule 2. Have a trustworthy accountant & seek his advice “before” you make a desicion you cant reverse, a wrong move in the eyes of the ATO doesn’t count. Rule 3. Shares, stocks etc are no different to gambling, if you can’t afford to lose it, don’t, back to rule 1.
