  1. Not sure how many charge bays they have at each station but wait time is a valid point and one that I have not seen addressed by any of the providers. However, I don't think it is an immediate concern given the 0.2% current take up of EV but I'm sure like all things, if the demand increases, then you would imagine they have the capabilities to scale up the charge the points. No concern about unplugging a car, despite what James and Jeremy may joke about. As long as you remember to lock your car, the plug cannot be removed.
  2. Not quite, but very soon you will be able to. Chargefox is currently setting up ultra fast stations to allow travel from Adelaide to Brisbane and are rolling out 21 Ultra Fast charge stations. They currently have 1 in Euroa, Barnawartha and Toombul. The Ultra-fast stations can provide 400km of charge in just 15 minutes. Pair that with the offerings from Audi (e-tron) and the M-B (EQC) and the Taycan, which are all launching later this year/next year, you soon will be able to drive from Melb to Sydney with 2 x 15 minute stops. I know that's not the same as 1 x 10 min fuel stop but the technology as well as the infrastructure are getting there (a double stop on that boring driving is not the end of the world, more opportunities for a country pie and a coffee that's too hot served in a mug). Don't get me wrong, I have no intentions of ever giving up my 964 and I only hope to add more classic cars to my garage in the future, but as a daily driver and the family car, I love the idea of an EV. Eliminate 'range anxiety' which is being done by company's such as Chargefox who have government and OEM funding as well as the next wave of EV's we are seeing from the big players, and they offer a different driving experience which is really enjoyable once you actually give them a go.
  3. I had one of these installed when i did the clutch last year, they're great, would recommend. Much lighter clutch pedal, very noticeable.
  4. haha yeah yeah, that too! Yours is sitting at a nice height also, this is too low for the D90's.
  5. I'll have to pop over to Weltmeister and give them some tips on the correct D90 set up 😜
  6. I miss understood the situation, they did snatch the whole wallet, so all is gone.
  7. ha! I best not keep the masses waiting then, I shall be nice and early. Cool, I have a young nephew with a budding Porsche interest which I am trying to turn into an obsession so Hanger Banger 2 should get him over the line.
  8. From what I have read and hear, stolen service books are used to help move stolen cars by tampering with the details. Can also be used to extract VIN and engine number details for re-birthing stolen or write off vehicles. He’s made flyers and hung them up in the neighbourhood offering a reward if they are handed in. Fingers crossed he gets them back because he wanted to sell the car!
  9. My friend had the service book stolen from his 996.2 in Carlton North on Friday. He accidentally left the car open and in the morning the service book was taken from the leather pouch (user manual and other documentation was left, only the service book was taken). He has reported it to the police but if anyone hears anything that could lead to their return or is aware of anyone who can "source service books for a 996", please let me know as he is obvioulsy keen for their return.
  10. Thanks Dan, it's out of the way but I'm going to meet up in Elwood for the full convoy, will catch you in Laverton. @hugh what time does the event run from and to? Wanting to pass the details on to some spectators but not sure what the best is for them to arrive.
  11. Gorgeous, good luck with the sale! I love the B5 RS4, hopefully one day. Yours is a perfect low km example.
  12. Appreciate the input guys. Yes FSH and IMS done, no modifications at all except for the Pioneer double DIN screen that the previous owner installed but I believe he has the original stereo for originality. I'll see what he says.
  13. I'm hoping the 996 brains trust can help me out with a value. A Very good friend of mine is thinking of selling is 996 to upgrade to a 997S and has asked for assistance on what it should be advertised for and what he should take. MY02, silver over dark blue, C2 Coupe, manual. Australian car, nothing sinister with full books and history, 150k kms. Thoughts on current value?
