    I love them. And recently purchased one with less than 20k on the clock. And in near new condition. 
    Used to own a turbo. I have a soft spot for the 996.

    Was trawling through CS (again) today and came across this beauty: https://carsales.com.au/_/details/SSE-AD-6536175

    Owner says: "I will drive and rev to accelerate the car when you inspect, but cannot let you drive sorry."
    "Please note, the car drives normal for years with an occasionally exhaust-like noise. I spent $2K to have the car inspected for that and Porsche Centre Willoughby said “it’s normal”, and PR Technology (well known and regarded Porsche specialist) said it’s NOT IMS BEARINGS nor TIMING CHAIN. And they both wanted to “inspect further” but I didn’t want to waste more money. I did factor in this listing price reduced of $3K (a lot for that matter) from what the car is worth."
    "*Because I really love the car, I will NOT sell it to someone I feel not respecting the car, that are those who TALKS DOWN or NEGOTIATE on it, I WON’T sell to you even you change your mind. It can’t be perfect in its 18 years, You can inspect it, but it a Take-It-Or-Leave-It, no negotiation, no talking down."
    What are these people thinking??  Do they really expect someone to buy a car without driving?

    You're on the money Porka.
    I admire his supreme talent and love the way he carries himself - let's face it in this era of F1 if a driver hasn't won a championship or 2 by the age of 25 he's no longer in the top 2 or 3 rated drivers to be a number one in the team. He's now 30 and on a huge dollar with a few young guys setting the tracks alight and putting the scores on the board on a lesser dollar. Dan wont play 2nd fiddle in a team hence the move from Redbull and at McLaren he's got a chance of some good reliability now using a Mercedes engine, Renault donks have been unreliable for a while and not too much better last season. Stick him in a Mercedes team car and with fair luck he'd be a champ. Would have been romantic to see him at Ferrari but LeClerc is the number 1 and thoroughly deserved of it too.

    Agreed.
    Also, I think it's not a bad commercial decision by McLaren. Arguably the best two personalities on the grid in their driver line up - Ricciardo/Norris. Should bring in some good revenue! Looking forward to all the pressers.

    Rick V reacted to hugh in Cargraphic exhaust time suit 996   
    Hi all, 
    I have a Cargraphic exhaust to suit a 996 (currently on a GT3). Notable features is that it’s quite loud! 
     
    I’ll try and get some pics and audio of it whilst on the car and post here. 
     
    These systems new are circa $10k, happy to see it find a new home for half of that. Any questions let me know.

    They all clearly have the same DNA . The 997 as has been mentioned before most likely very similar to your 996.2 GT3 .
    The .2 the same but more refined felt smoother suspension better  but still a real driving experience.
    The 991.2 still early days for me but very refined super smooth in comparison to the other 2 cars and a awesome motor looking forward to getting out in the track in it .
    Feels bigger but not stupid big . The 997.1 and before are definitely more basic and raw wether that is a good thing or not .
    All these models are 10,s
