  1. How did you do that @LeeM? I broke a toe 15 odd years ago during a cricket game - it still gives me grief! Unfortunately mine is on my clutch foot.
  2. It was a pretty good looking car (from afar)! I look forward to seeing another 996 cruise around the traps soon!
  3. I think this was for sale on Facebook recently.
  4. Understand @LeeM. It looks like an amazing car. Very competitive pricing too!

    Hi @JpDp, it went through CEVA. So a mix of train and trucks. I think 800 to get it shipped from WA to any door in SA.

    Thanks @Oggie. That’s what I thought. Presumably the previous owner wanted a tad more grip on the front.

    I’m near there but in the Mitcham area. Tyre question for 996 owners: were 225/45r17s standard for the fronts on a 1998 Carrera 2? They look a bit odd and from what I can see the stock size was 205s. The Contis are a bit old and squeal a bit ... and I haven’t even pushed it much.. really ?. Missed out on getting her to Cars and Coffee at Blackwood on Sunday but I did go for a bit of a blast around Belair in the afternoon. Really enjoying getting to know the quirks of the car.

    Absolutely @PhilH ! That would be great!
  9. I was looking for about a year. A lot of cars came and went. One or two really good ones disappeared in a flash before I could even think about them; while others just stay for months. The market works like that I guess. I reckon it was @symsy who posted about looking broadly and being ready to pounce quickly when a good one came up - turns out he was bang on the money. I saw one pop up briefly on Carsales then gumtree and drop not long after I enquired. I thought I’d missed out again but I got lucky as it was being moved from a major dealer to smaller outfit. Got a 1998 C2 manual coupe for 40k. 149k on the clock and full service history from a Porsche dealer. Dealer could have made more from me but I bought it sight unseen before he had it listed. I got lucky but they are out there.

    @LeeM I haven’t, but the previous owner may have. We have only been there a year or so. It’s a Tudor, three bedrooms. More modern robes in the back of the house.

    Well.. it’s home. Apparently it’s filthy so I will post up better pics once I’m back in Australia and have had time to clean it up, and actually drive it!

    Hi @Daly87 yeah.. just didn’t want to count my chickens etc. Car arrives next week and I won’t see it (I still haven’t seen it in the flesh..) until Sunday week. Its a 1998 C2 manual coupe. Blue with tan interior. Pretty excited.

    Thanks @Pokiou! Unfortunately it will arrive while I’m overseas.... oh well, at least I have something to look forward to when I get home (cough* apart from the wife and kids).

    Thanks @LeeM. That’s good advice. Will consider Lonsdale now.

    @LeeM from your earlier post, given its an Australian delivered car should I expect an Identity Check (Tier 2)? If this is the case I presume I don't need to book at appointment at Regency either - from what I have read anyway. Getting a bit excited now. Car is getting serviced, bits fixed and mufflers replaced with designtek ones - hopefully all done by the end of week. With luck will see the car next week (for the first time..)!
