  1. Yes while I would be cautious I would also give the seller the benefit of the doubt. In my experience some gumtree sellers can be very lazy and just want a quick sale, but often the product involved is still genuine. In the case of the S2 the seller says the body is rough so perhaps he thinks photos won't aid his sale. He does have another separate product listing with photos...
  2. For anyone interested there's an 86 Turbo and 90 S2 currently on Gumtree...
  3. That's great info, thanks Allan. How do you find the interior brightness with the LEDs?
  4. Looks like a great car. GT3s look so clean in white. Someone bring it back to Brisbane.
  5. I'll make you a counter offer. You can have the four schmick D90s for your cam cover and I'll throw in a fifth D90 as a spare if you throw in your white S2. ? On a more serious note - thanks all for the comments. Very excited about the new car.
  6. Will discuss with my wife. Surely mates rates... Re pictures - here you go: http://porscheforum.com.au/topic/11518-my-1989-944-s2/#top
  7. Well I figured it was about time I put a post up on my new purchase. I recently became the owner of a 1989 944 S2, my first Porsche, and more than a decade in the making. Sincere thanks to Rob and Jason for their assistance through the process. Now some brief details on the car. Stone Grey on black Porsche script interior Australian delivered 193k km Full service history from new A few notable goodies on the car: - Koni MO30 adjustable suspension - 968 CS sway bars front and rear - Racer's Edge camber plates - KLA strut brace - Braided brake lines - 9Tuning performance chip - 2.5inch stainless exhaust - 18inch 996 Carrera lightweight wheels (8 and 10in widths) The car also came with a box of spare parts and recently refinished stock Design 90 wheels with new Michelin tyres I have some maintenance to perform on the car to get it nice and reliable (timing chain, belts, water pump etc) but it should be a good base for my weekend purpose. Looking forward to the ownership experience. I only have a couple of photos from the seller at this stage. I will be sure to create an ownership thread and post plenty of pics once I've had a chance to detail her and get the SLR camera out. Justin
  8. Tingy - I'll trade your black cam cover for my mint, original and unmarked beige cover that would be far better suited to a stock looking example like yours... ?
  9. Very sorry to hear of the sale Chris. I only bought an S2 a week ago too! Someone is going to score an excellent car here.
  10. Shame I missed this one. Will try for one down the track. Got a good laugh out of your FEP Society Committee and agenda Brian.
  11. Well done to reach 3,000 members! I remember joining the forum years ago and it was pretty quiet. It's a busy hive of activity now and is growing daily.
  12. I had not heard of this clear Infinity tint before Jason. Sounds like a great idea though and keen to get your thoughts on its effectiveness. Wow we're racking up a list of things to talk about at C&C Saturday. ?
  13. It's a shame that car sales don't have the same disclosure as houses. We may never know if he actually sold it or just took it off the market due to lack of interest... I see the black 89 Turbo in Vic has been dropping price daily. Anyone know the story on that car/been to inspect?
  14. That is a very impressive package. I bet it would be a blast to drive! All the best with your sale.
  15. Congrats on the purchase Steve. Looks like a really clean example and looks great in white.
  16. I'm a big fan of the Kalahari beige metallic colour. It's quite rare and my second favourite colour behind indian/guards red. Agree the car is well overpriced though...
  17. I could be keen down the track Brian. You have great taste Jason. This is also my wheel of choice. I'm keen to take a look/feel once you get it installed. How much can you source the wheel and boss kit for Bruce?
  18. Congrats on the purchase Brian. Post up some pics when the modelling agency allows!
  19. Thanks for sharing Ossie. It was great to hear a bit more on the history of this car and what you have planned for it. Should be a nice reliable package for you once the restoration is complete! Keep us posted on the progress.
  20. Wow that is one hell of a restoration! Someone is going to score with this one. Hope it goes to a good home.
  21. I'm with you on this one. Modern performance with classic looks is the real drawcard here. How many older cars do you wish had a newer engine and better tech features etc. They have nailed the formula...except for the interior which looks like a dodgy autosalon car with all that alcantara. That said, I'm also a big fan of the Singer cars which are more akin to art in my opinion. The RUF engine may have the edge though. The specs are compelling and that is a bucketload of torque!
  22. Yes agree on the number exchange. I saw your Turbo down the far end Rob. Was looking particularly shiny today. I was parked down the other end out the back of the REIQ carpark. Maybe we should exchange mugshots rather than numbers haha. We probably cross paths a dozen times when walking the strip.
