  1. Just moved up to a town in central Victoria and was wondering if there was a Porsche specialist mechanic in Bendigo or surrounds? I have a 996 and after a good service coilover install and check over before a upcoming drive. Cheers Barnesy
  2. Newbie just joined, would appreciate a heads up on a Porsche Specialist in the ACT or surrounds for a 2011 Cayman S, PDK. No issues, just wish to know where to head in the future. Thanks in advance. Cheers Noel
  3. HI all lovely forum people. Just got the wife a Porsche Cayenne Deisel 2011. Needs a major service and don't think I'll be paying the big service costs Porsche Melbourne charge. Use to have a ex BMW specialist for my X5 but now looking for a Porsche specialist. Does anyone know a EX-Porsche Mechanic that has started his own shop? Ideally nearly North Melbourne or within 10-15km of CBD. Hope you can help Andrew
  4. Are any W.A. PFA members able to recommend an independent specialist that can have a look at my clunky 928S4 auto transmission? Who knows these cars the best? @Diamond911, @reggiegums, anyone? Reply here or by PM as you prefer. Thanks in advance, MM
  5. Ive just bought my first ever Porsche a 2002 996.2. It has only done 37k km.I could be the happiest person in Oz right now!! I am going to get the ims bearing upgraded and I was wondering what else would be a good idea to get changed/inspected on a car with such low kms at the same time ? Thanks in advance
  6. SUPER QUICK SUMMARY: Hey guys. I want someone to look at my IMS and clutch status. Should I go to: 1) BWA Auto in Seven Hills (apparently they are the importer for LN Engineering) 2) AutoHaus Hamilton in Dee Why (Grant has been really polite) 3) Weltmeister in Melbourne (Matt has been a champion!) 4) Somewhere else? Would be great to know what people think of these garages. I will most likely get a post purchase service done by P Centre Willoughby for $695 (it gives me 12 months of P roadside assist) and get them to give me the filter to cut up..... AND THE FULL POST: Dear Team, So I have bitten the bullet. 2005 987 Box S Manual with 71,000kms on the odometer. So far, all servicing done annually through P centres only (Parramatta, Melbourne and Willoughby). Most recent service done 6 months ago. I am wanting the car to be serviced, have the oil filter taken out and checked for IMS / engine debris, change over the oil and, potentially, drop the gearbox and get an idea of which size IMS I have and the degree of wear on the clutch - maybe change it all if clutch is worn / engine can take the IMS solution. I spoke at length to the owner at BWA Auto in Seven Hills. Apparently they are the importer for LN products, including the IMS solution. He says the best move, to protect the car, is to bring the car in, drop the gearbox, take a look at the clutch and IMS and change whatever can / needs to be changed (and at least know I have the larger IMS bearing or the small one.....). The exercise is upto $5000! (Yikes!). I am also tossing up, if the oil filter is free of any debris, whether I should just drive the car to Canberra / Melbourne or wherever I have to go and attend to the problem down the track, just keep checking the filter every 5000kms..... (which a $1300 per year exercise, sad face.....). Has anyone heard of BWA? Are they good? Should I go elsewhere? Autohaus Hamilton? Weltmeister Melbourne? BWA do all sorts of prestige marques, whilst Autohaus and Weltmesiter are P specific. Thoughts? As always, thank-you. PK
  7. A few people have asked about maintenance for our vehicles. And it is good to know when looking to purchase where along the intervals your intended buy sits so you can plan for what is coming up. This booklet covers Boxster/S, Carrera/S, 911 Turbo, Cayenne/S/GTS/Turbo/S/Diesel/Hybrid and Panamera/S/4S/Turbo Click this link to download the Maintenance PDF
