    My new RS

    Wheels look fantastic. Good move...
  2. thanks, was thinking of going the Varta
  3. In my view the electric steering in the 991.1/.2s is not great. I find it pretty lifeless in comparison to the 997s. After driving a 992, they appear to have sorted the electric steering (in my humble experience).
  4. Does anyone have the specs for the recommended battery size? What brands are people using? TIA
  5. Already here - check in at your dealer... Don't drive one before you put your money down for a series 1, or you might be looking back at 997s!
  6. I have had several cars repaired at CB - Carl and Ross are great to deal with and the work they do is fantastic. Highly recommended
  7. 992 overall was incredible - expensive though, the one i specced up was about $350k drive away Yes, the drive was markedly different than the 991.2 - specifically steering feel and balance (992 has the engine mounted further forward, aiding turn in and balance) Completely different to the 997 Turbo The electric steering in the 991s doesn't feel as nice as the revised version in the 992. They have improved this a lot IMO
  8. Test drove a 992 recently, in between driving a few 991.2s Amazing difference in steering feel for the better in the 992. Seems like they have sorted the electric steering. Was considering a second hand 991.2 over a full priced 992 - might have to save the pennies until i can get into a 992 now.
  9. It will be stamp duty, collected at registration stage - not LCT. State specific i guess. Either way, a stupid idea IMO. Shows the lack of foresight of Government. Enjoying the ridiculous housing boom revenue stream for so long, without planning for it to ever wind back.
  10. I love the ride of the 997, especially with PASM. Soft enough around town, and if you want to stiffen up on the track or over speed humps its there for when you need it. I am sure you will enjoy the R8, amazing engine, and much more presence than the 911. Rare as well, especially in 6spd.

    New 993

    Looks sensational to me. Awesome x 10
  12. Hi All, Looking for a replacement gear knob for my manual 997 (mine has broken a bit of plastic at the front) Where to buy? Anyone got one? Thanks In advance.
  13. Two years in, and still absolutely loving my 997.1T (Manual, Cab) Only mod has been Cobb access port tuning module running the stage 1 tune. Dynoed at 300+kw at the wheels. Came from factory / dealer when new with short shift. Prices on these cars seem to have stabilised at $150k. Mine is unlikely to ever be sold.
  14. 6 weeks - just park it as normal and don't worry about it
