  1. This is such a great looking 930, if only funds and garage space permitted. https://www.carsales.com.au/cars/details/1979-porsche-930-turbo-manual/SSE-AD-6262065/?Cr=48
  2. Thanks for the links mate, some great reading in here. It seems the setup and install are just as important as the products, would be great to find a porsche suspension guru in melbourne who can help get the best out of it.
  3. Its a couple of large boxes, could be a tough one to carry back! And yeah suspect it is various taxes on components beyond GST which was a bit annoying.
  4. Guys in this thread seem very informed. Does anyone know of a good suspension place in Melbourne? Am planning to get some Kw v3 ‘s put into my 3.2 along with refreshed bushings. I normally get my work done at Porsche Melbourne but suggest they will baulk at doing something so far from stock.
  5. I don’t remember the exact purchase price in AUD. However I do remember the nasty $1k bill in tax I had to pay on its way into Australia. Which seemed a bit extreme to me...
  6. My classic retrofit unit just arrived. I also have the washer bottle replacement kit from them and the fuse upgrade panel. Will keep people posted on how it goes, skunkwerks will do the a/c install.
  7. I'm looking to do the advanced driver training at phillip island, this is the one where you use your own car. Was considering doing it in a '86 3.2 carrera. Has anyone here done the ADT in a classic car?
  8. Anyone here have recommendations on someone to do an elephant racing suspension install in Melbourne? I went the sport restoration 2 this time around. 1986 Porsche 911 Sport Restoration 2 Package Current Total $4954.00 FRONT Stock Ball Joints U-Tab Kit + Swaybar Backer Plate Kit Bundle QuickChange Strut Brace Systems Front Hollow Adjustable Sway Bars Ball Joint Hardware Kits Front Plated & Plugged Hollow Torsion Bars Strut Top Camber Plate Bushings Turbo Tie Rods Control Arm Rubber Bushing Kit Bilstein Sport Shocks & Inserts REAR Trailing Arm Bushings Rear Plated & Plugged Hollow Torsion Bars QuickChange™ Spring Plate Kit Spring Plate Rubber Bushing Kit Rear Von Shocks Spring Plate Hardware Kit Rear Hollow Adjustable Sway Bars
  9. The aged care play I believe is overstated, refer the demographics above.
  10. One in QLD sat for a few months recently which was around $110k, had quite a few k's on the clock from memory though.
  11. I feel the boomer population effect is overstated in Australia as per below. Now compare this to Japan which has a real demographic problem on its hands.
  12. No synchro on reverse, a pause will help it glide right in.
  13. There was. C2S tipper that sat for ages around $110k. He must shake his head when he sees prices like that for the manual.
  14. I've sold a couple recently - always pretty smooth and pain free. I think it's humbling when you overprice it. With that said it does seem like selling non-stock cars is a tough one to price.
  15. Probably a combo of rubbish exchange rates and the wheels now being $1250USD each. Postage isn’t too bad $450USD all up.
