    WGA got a reaction from 901er in 996 GT3 Purchase   
    Almost every other week I search for 996 GT3 RS on the OZ market trying decide whether it is financially beneficial, or not, to bring my UK 996 GT3 RS back with me. Right now there are 3 x 996 RSs on the market. One at Duttons $389K, one at Autohaus $389K and another at Classic Throttle Shop $349K. With the shift in the exchange rate, these prices are making it look very marginal so considering selling my car back into the UK market and then picking up a local one.  
    However, I have a question relating to the Autohaus and Throttle Shop cars that I thought someone on this board might able to help me with. Both these cars have been fitted with a 3rd party front lift kit. In Europe I have looked at dozens of 996 RS over the last few year and have yet to encounter one, or even hear of one, being fitted with a front lift kit and yet here are two in OZ for sale. Is this just bizarrely co-incidental or is there some connection between these two cars? Anybody know?
    And just FYI, as for the Dutton's car, it's another case of false advertising. The description of the car says in caps "ABSOLUTELY NO MODIFICATIONS" and yet it's clear that it has an after market exhaust (as does the Autohaus car). What else I ask?

    While you guys are waiting for your RS in OZ, I have taken delivery of my European based LG WP RS. In the last two weeks of ownership I have done a round trip to Goodwood FoS and a track day at Spa. 2,000kms already on the car.

    Then you might like to watch this video. Needless to say, he has impeccable taste. My red 964 RS is nose to nose with his black 964 RS 3.8 in the video.

    As previously mentioned, I am returning to Australia late this year and have been in the process of looking to buy some cars in Australia in advance of my return. Well, I am happy to say that after a lot of calls and emails, I have amazingly managed to track down an open allocation for a GT3 RS!   Paperwork is done and deposit paid.
    I have configured the car exactly the same as my Euro based GT3 RS (LG, LG interior, Platinum Wheels, etc)...except no WP which you can't seem to get in Australia. So I will be in the very fortunate position of having a Euro based LG GT3 RS for the summer track season and an Aussie based LG GT3 RS. Needless to say I am one very happy camper.

    Yes, I just checked the website. Not overly disappointed that its sold.
    I had been looking at this car for around 6+months. I even looked at it personally when I was in Sydney a few months back. The car presented well but I could not straight answers from CTS. When I asked them about the kill switch, they just said, "I can’t clarify this for you any further, I can only offer you the car as it stands". So they either genuinely didn't know (which is a reflection of how thorough they are about a cars history), or they didn't want to tell me for some reason.
    I am not sure that they understood that all I was after was some transparency. When I bought my European based 997.2 GT3 RS, it was a car that had done in excess of 5,000kms on track but it didn't bother me because the owner was honest about its history. What tracks he had been on, how many times, etc. And the over revs report was excellent. So I bought the car because I was comfortable with what I was buying.   In this case, I just never felt comfortable with the info I was getting about the car. So if it is sold, c'est la vie.

    After many visits to Spa, I finally managed to take some time to drive the old circuit.  Started where the old road exits the track at Les Combes and followed it to where it rejoins the existing circuit just near Blanchimont. Fascinating drive through the countryside trying to imagine the old racers drive at impossible speeds along these roads. The GT3 Touring was a great choice for the drive.
