  3. All, considering a fixed wing on a 1999 C2 and wondering if any one has done a third brake delete, not just the cover plate but a smooth rear deck plate similar to what was done on the classic coupe. More specifically will part number 996-503-211-02-GRV which is the rear deck lid (piece between the glass and the rear boot lid) for the turbo (no break light recess) fit as a replacement for 996-503-211-01-GRV which is the stock C2 deck lid (third light recess). I know turbo is wide body and C2 is narrow but I understand this is in the guards not in the body so think width should be ok, just not sure about width between glass and boot and mounting points. Any assistance would be appreciated.
  4. For sale by Summon on behalf of the owner: Exquisite Australian-delivered Porsche 911 Carrera (996-series) with extensive history, enthusiast owner, great investment potential. Asking price is $75,800 or nearest offer This great example of the 911 Carrera 2 has modest mileage for its age, has been serviced annually either within the Porsche dealer network or at respected Porsche independent specialists, and looks fabulous in its gleaming Seal Grey paintwork and 911 GT3-style alloy wheels. Originally delivered to Queensland in 2001, this stunning Porsche 911 Carrera 996-series has been lovingly maintained by four Porsche enthusiast owners. Following a cylinder head failure in 2011, the car’s engine was replaced (with overall mileage standing at 94,591km) with a new factory-delivered unit with an uprated IMS bearing, together with an improved gear lever mechanism from the later 997-series Porsche 911. The Porsche factory database has been updated with the new engine number, validating its status as an approved repair. Partly as a consequence of the Covid 19 pandemic, between 2018 and 2022 this much cherished Porsche 996 Carrera 2 has travelled only 1,000km. It’s in excellent condition inside and out considering its age, and its specification includes the following niceties: · Unmarked black leather upholstery · 911 GT3-style lightweight alloy wheels. · Electrically adjustable front seats. · Electric sunroof. · Climate control. · Cruise control. · Original Becker CDR-220 radio-CD player. · Original Porsche First Aid Kit.

FRIDAY NIGHT For the people who arrive on Friday, a street party in Albury. There's plenty of street parking, and loads of places to catch up with old friends over a meal or a drink. Its also a great opportunity to meet up with other entrants that you may only know online. SATURDAY MORNING A cars and coffee type morning in Nouriel Park in Albury. There's a cafe that does great coffee, plus food and drink vendors. SATURDAY AFTERNOON Destination Unknown Drive - ~3½ hours of spirited driving, with a half way regroup stop. Observing the speed limits of course. SATURDAY NIGHT 3 course Gala dinner SUNDAY Track day at Barnawatha Raceway. You'll get 3 or 4 sessions of untimed track action in small groups of similar type cars. There will be alternatives for people who don't want to do the track day.

  8. Hi All, I have just joined this forum and have had an old 996 for many years . I have been playing with the idea of a kit and was able to first get some cheap 991 headlights from ebay. I was very surprised how close they were to the 996.2 lights , obviously without the blinker section. That got me thinking that they should easily fit the car. I purchased a 997 GT2 body kit and started the work on the lights as i wanted to preserve the original parts if needed . I quickly realised that i should have either purchased a set of 997 lights or a different kit. I had to remove the original mounting brackets from the 996 and remodel and refit them to house the 991 lights , not an easy proposition. The kit also had to be re-glassed to the shape of the 991 lights . I have finally gotten it to the paint stage and will be painting it Modern Grey / Crayon soon . Any suggestions on paint colour would be appreciated . Thanks for reading and hope you like the results . I'm sure there are some haters but what the hell Cheers Arieh
  9. Hello. I'm shortly listing my BMW E46 M3 CSL for sale. Aus delivered, and collector grade, 57km. non tracked. Original accident free, full service history car. If anyone is chasing one, PM thanks. NSW Rego BMWCSL They almost never come up at this grade and low km. I expect lots of future upside, especially when the USA market can import them and prices will likely jump, as they have for the R34 GTR - they went 'through the roof'. BMW M3 CSL In 2004 BMW’s M Sport division were riding high with the much-loved E46 M3 conquering the hearts of enthusiasts the world over with its amazing dynamics. But the Germans wanted to prove just how good the engineering under the M3 was, so they turned to a legendary name from BMW’s past - CSL. Only 544 RHD “Coupe Sport Lightweight” E46 M3 CSL were built globally and 23 CSLs were sold new in Australia by BMW. At $210,000 they sold out in minutes and were an instant classic. This BMW CSL was delivered new in a beautiful silver grey metallic exterior with extensive alcantara and carbon fibre trim and is immaculate. This vehicle follows the heritage of that legendary BMW 3.0 CSL from the 70s. As such it features an incredible array of lightweight materials and design features improve performance, including extensive suspension and engine enhancements. The CSL weights over 350kg less than a 2021 BMW M3, 110kg less than its M3 peer at the time, and it well and truly outperforms its brothers and competitors. It also looks timeless and magnificent. BMW M engineers, in conjunction with their Formula 1 team went through the CSL from back to front, including using · The award-winning 3.2-litre naturally aspirated DOHC in-line six-cylinder engine is beloved by many for being a sonorous piece of precision engineering, however the CSL’s version is in another league of performance and aural delight. · The CSL is famous for having a naturally aspirated F1 designed carbon fibre intake, six throttle bodies, larger intake manifold, higher spec CSL only camshafts, higher spec CSL specific exhaust valves and more all resulting in over 111 BHP/ litre of capacity, totalling 265kw from just 3.2 litres. It is amazing, useable on the road, and gives you a smile - every single drive. · CSL Suspension components include aluminium rear control arms with CSL uni-ball joints · Brakes on the CSL feature upgraded 345mm discs with a specific CSL ABS system resulting in 100-0 km/h in just 34 metres. · Lightweight and wider 19” CSL wheels (8.5” f, 9.5” r) provided more grip yet saved 11kg vs their M3 19” equivalent · CSL specific SMG gearbox and computer – shifts in only 0.08 seconds and is still practical if caught in traffic. · CSL specific Dynamic Stability program for safety · CSL Lightweight optimised floor foam · CSL lightweight rear glass · CSL lowered and revised suspension · faster CSL steering rack · light weight carbon fibre front bumper, and glass fibre reinforced lightweight rear boot and bumper with perfectly integrated spoiler to reduce lift · and fixed back alcantara sports bucket seats similar to found in a Porsche 911 GT3. The use of carbon fibre flows from the roof panel right through the interior cabin including the full door trims. It also features in the engine bay with an incredible design of race type intake system that is famous for its wonderful sound. This is a rare, collectible and rapidly appreciating vehicle that has been kept in excellent order throughout its life with only 57,000km over 18 years. The M3 CSL brings the perfect balance of modern design coupled with performance levels that you can actually enjoy, without having to go ‘silly fast’. Very rarely do they come to market with these low km and in this condition. NSW Rego “BMW-CSL” transfer negotiable.
  10. For those not up for a ramble, here's the short version: On the weekend I flew to Adelaide, bought a 996 and drove it ~1,400km back to Sydney. Although I would not recommend doing that, I loved it. The whole caper is the fault of @LeeM...and I can’t thank him enough! 🙂 And for everyone else, here's the long and boring version! So, this all started with a low key little comment here that only the strange people who don’t mind a 996 would have noticed... This lead to a PM to Lee, which lead to a call from Lee to Craig at Buik’s for the owners number, a call from me to the owner (a gentleman named Peter), some more calls to Craig & Mark at Buik’s, a PPI by Mark, some more calls and emails with the owner…then...a deposit sent and QANTAS tickets booked. Tickets, plural, because the road-trip component was my father-in-laws mad idea, so he was along for the ride. I suppose I wasn't too hard to convince, as the last thing I wanted to do was wait a few weeks while transport could be arranged for my first Porsche. I should clarify that the car is a 1999 model and had 88,350km on it. It also has these options: C23: Australian delivered XJB: Arctic Silver centre console XRL: 18" Sport Design Wheel X54: Chrome exhaust tips X70: Sills in aluminimum X71: Instruments in aluminium 220: LSD 222: ASR 224: ABD 236: nternal production code related to tyres 436: 3 spoke steering wheel 446: Coloured logo wheel caps 696: CDR220 CD Player I'd had a few photos sent over during this process, but I'd also managed to find this - written in 2015 - (and Peter very kindly gave me a physical copy of the magazine to go with the car) which gave a bit more insight into how well it had been treated: I’d already heard from Lee, Craig, Mark and of course Peter, that the car was in excellent condition, and exceptionally well serviced…but I tell you what, I still couldn’t believe it when we arrived at Peter’s place (after he very kindly collected us from the airport) and he opened the roller door... It looked like new! I was seriously over the moon at this point. 88,000km is not a lot for a car, but only if it’s been well cared for, and this one clearly had been. The funniest bit was asking about how Peter took care of the paint: “I just wash it”...he said. No synthetic coatings etc here (although he later admitted to using a bit of Maguiars he had in the garage, sometimes! 😆) which made the condition of the paint even more remarkable. We went through everything, did a bit of a driving loop, which showed how smoothly and tightly it drove, then back to sign some papers and hand over a bank cheque… Paper work done and a last photo of Peter and his wife Carol with the car, and we were on the road ... for ... five minutes ... to visit Lee! Showed him the 996, checked out his SC, had a yarn and got the best directions out of town and headed off… Hope you liked my clutch riding out the end of your street Lee… 😁 Our destination on Saturday was Hay, for an overnight stop… This is where I learnt that a surprising number of petrol stations are closed on a Saturday afternoon in country South Australia / Victoria … I skipped one I really should have stopped at, so had to sweat my way into Hay, in the dark (really should have left Adelaide a bit earlier but oh well), with the fuel light on… To give you an idea of how thoroughly I had planned things at this point: I’d not reset the odometer when I filled up in Adelaide, but thought I remembered it being about 350km, or maybe 250km...either way I didn't really know how big the tank was (Peter had said 70L but that seemed too big) so only had a "best guess" that we'd done about 650km and thought things must be close… In the end I put 55L in what I believe now is about a 64L tank, so things weren’t that dire, but at the time I'd never been happier to see a petrol station! Next time I'd plan those stops... Adds to the sense of adventure if you don't though! 😁 Anyway straight after that lesson, I learnt another surprising fact - all the take-away places close at 9pm in Hay. Even the pub bistro. We went back to the “restaurant” at the petrol station which is open until 10pm...so there’s a tip for you. Actually, they did a pretty good bacon and egg roll (didn't take a photo, sorry). Anyway, had a good sleep at the Motel so I can highly recommend the Saltbush Motor in at Hay... Here's the carpark: Sunday saw an early start to head through to Wagga Wagga, onto the Hume and then home. In my excitement, I hadn’t really thought about the fact a road like that would be littered in Kangaroos, and it was… So another great lesson was learnt: the 996 has pretty good brakes when you jump on them, and the ABS worked… I spent about an hour doing 70kmh in the 110 zone with eyes peeled for suicidal skippies… Bloody hell. To be honest, I was really just dreading having to call Peter and tell him his pride and joy was on a flat bed going to the panel beaters with half a kangaroo hanging out the windshield! Luckily, the one sensible thing we had done was clean the bugs from the night before off the windshield before we left, so I could still actually see as we drove into the quite nice sunrise: After that, things were pretty uneventful. A quick brekky stop and fuel splash in Wagga... ...then we ended up just driving non-stop the rest of the way home to Sydney. I was truly astonished how easy the car was to drive that distance. Comfortable, relaxed touring. Unbelievable that it’s 20 years old. I can only imagine what a Grand Tourer it must have made when it was new, and what a 992 must be like today... I'll have to find that out... I will admit to a bit of a nap after lunch, but then I spent the afternoon cleaning the car up from the trip: Getting up close and personal with a wash-mitt revealed that the car really was as immaculate as my first impressions showed. There’s a couple of stone chips, but literally only a couple. Some of the black plastic bits inside the front bar have faded a little but apart from that, it’s basically perfect. Astounding, and just a huge credit to Peter, who’d owned it since 2003. That kind of ownership history (along with the feedback from Lee and others) was a big draw card for me, and was probably the main reason I was happy to pull the trigger on it from interstate. So, that’s the end of the beginning. I'm really looking forward to getting to know the car (which as I said earlier, is my first Porsche) over the coming weeks and months. More than a few Sunday morning drives and perhaps a bit of driver training to get used to having an engine in the wrong place 😂 are definitely on the cards. I really can't wait to get back out and drive the thing. As well as Lee, who as I said, I really can’t thank enough for bringing the car to the attention of the forum and then chasing up contact details and input on the car from locals for me, I have to say thanks to @red clubbie who has been a great sounding board as I’ve pondered buying every type of Carrera, some 944s and even at one point I think a Cayenne 😂… I’ll be around to show you the car in the metal soon Geoff!
  11. Six genuine Beru coilpacks like new. *** SOLD*** Was installed in my 996 3.4 for a few hours then removed (engine had problems that coil packs couldn't fix 😣). These are the upgraded "997" spec coil packs and include longer bolts. Should fit 986 Boxsters. Possibly 997/987, but check part numbers to make sure suitable for your car. Pickup Box Hill North, Croydon South or Niddrie Vic, can post Australia wide with tracking for $20 (allow 2-3 weeks as postage is very slow right now)
  12. I have something in mind that I can't see if anyone else has done before or not. But maybe some have and failed and I should learn from their mistakes... I want to delete the centre console because of my height and knees and comfort. Also, I dislike the flimsy cupholder, wonder of engineering that it is. I am thinking I can remove the cupholders and just fit the climate controls and a double-din head unit in the space there. There will be some hacking at the plastic and some hand made metal brackets. Has anyone heard of this being done before? Am I on a fool's errand?
  13. Hi Guys, I have 2 Recaro Seats up for sale, they need a clean but apart from that, they are in great condition. There are a few scratches on the back and underneath the seat. They came out of my 1999 996 Carrera. Not to sure what else they can bolt into that's why I've taken photos of the stamps to let you do your homework to make sure they fit. Looking for $1200 or reasonable offer
  14. My rear centre console is showing it’s age (and the jewellery nicks and scratches of its previous owner). I’m going to get it resprayed in either satin black or match the body’s seal grey (in gloss). Has anyone here does this or had it done by a paint shop? If so, how’d you remove the soft-touch surface?
  15. My lower control arms are squeaky (when driving at low speed over driveways etc). Id like to replace them. I don’t track the car so they don’t need to be adjustable (for negative camber). I know the OEM part is / was made by TRW but it seems very difficult to find the TRW part now because of a legal dispute between them and Porsche a few years ago. There are other brands such as Meyle (but I have read these can be slightly longer or shorter than the OEM part causing problems). I’m based in Sydney. What are peoples thoughts / recommendations? And where to buy? I’m not particularly keen on going from rubber to poly either. Cheers, Chris
  16. I’m after a standard black 3 spoke (OEM) wheel from a manual 996 to be a donor for a paddle shift mod on my ‘02 Tip. If anyone’s sitting on a spare they not longer need, I’d be keen to chat. Alternatively, if anyone can point me in the direction of where I could track one down - I’ll owe you a beer!
  17. If anyone has done a centre console delete in their 996, and has the frame laying around, I’d be keen to take it off your hands. I’m undoing an early noughties GPS install that hacked my frame apart.
  18. Hi Guys I am a new Porsche owner for the first time, It has so many custom extras please see pics. Tartan in the seats are original from the 1970's new stock never been used or opened. IMS bearing just changed. Full custom exhaust and setup. GT3 Tune
  19. Any suggestions on tint and what % to go with. Just had a quote done ($500) for 35% tint which translates to 24% when tested. It’s to bloody hot driving around without it. I know the purists will spit the dummy but before I go ahead with it does anyone have it on their car and recall the % they went with. Any other advice I’m all ears.
  20. Hi, I have a brand new set of Pirelli P Zero Rosso tyres available. Sizes are; Front: 235.40.18 Rear: 295.30.18 $1500.00 for all 4. (That's essentially $1000.00 off RRP) Happy to ship at buyers expense alternatively pick up is in Frankston South Melb, Vic.
  21. Hi All, I'm chasing some suspension parts for a 996 GT3. Anyone have any parts or complete suspension assembly kits that are surplus their needs? In particular I'm chasing the top hats (front & rear) and the arms that thread onto the struts (front & rear). It would be great to find these as separate items but understand if only available as part of a full suspension set. Any leads would be greatly appreciated. Pic below for reference.
  22. Hello. Up for sale is a brand new Schroth Profi Porsche GT3 996/997 3×2 racing harness (SCH-94690). I drive a 991 GT3 so lesson learnt for buying online late at night after a few bevvies! Retails for $830+ in Oz. Happy to let go for $750. Brand new, only removed from box to view. I'm in Melbourne and happy to handover or post (at buyers cost). Can be contacted via forum or by mobile at 0434 Four Zero Six 512. The Schroth Profi Porsche GT3 996/997 3X2 racing belt is a Porsche GT3 Cup competition belt configured as a Profi 3X2 6PT race harness system with Porsche specific bolt-in ends (B43A) which are compatible with all 996 and 997 GT3, RSR, and Cup cars. The Profi GT3 3X2 belt features universal 3" polyester webbing at the shoulders, 2" polyester webbing at the lap belts, lightweight 2" pull-down adjusters, and RFR rotary buckle. The Schroth Profi Porsche GT3 3x2's universal usage 3" shoulder belts are designed to be used with or without FHR/HANS devices. The 3" polyester shoulder straps will allow the user the option to use the belt system sometimes with or sometimes without a FHR/HANS device. The Profi Porsche GT3 996/997 3X2 2"(50mm) lap belt's most notable feature is that it rides within the crest of the human pelvis where a 3" belt would rest on the edges. This allows you to get the belt up to an inch and a half tighter. That means the lap belt will be working earlier in the accident event because it gets loaded faster. It's also more comfortable and easier to adjust because there's less friction through the adjuster. The Porsche specific bolt-in ends of the Profi GT3 3X2 belts will allow a direct bolt-in to the factory GT3 seat set-up in any 911, 996, and 997 chassis. Shoulders come in 70" length and compatible with most harness bars. FIA 8853-2016 Approved. Available in black, blue, red, or yellow colors. • Universal usage 3” shoulder belts, • 2” (50mm) Profi Pull Down lap belts with sewn in Prosche specific bolt-in hardware (B43A), • T-bar adjustable Dual Sub-Strap, • Light-weight RFR Rotary Cam Lock release, • FIA 8853-2016
  23. Hi, I have a genuine Tequipment 996 car cover to suit an aero kit/gt3 model (pocket for tail etc.) It has been used and has marks where it has picked up some tyre black but the marks are on the tyre areas only - the rest of the cover is mint. Comes with a carry bag as well. Like a man purse but bit bigger. More fashionable than a bum bag if you wanted to take it to the streets. These are lovely covers but are pretty pricey new, especially if you can find them to suit a 996. Happy to see it go to a good home, $250.00 - hopefully its worth at least that to somebody. Pick up is in Frankganistan South Victoria but happy to post at buyers expense. If I am unable to find it a new home I could drape it across a couple of chairs and make a cubby? Or maybe turn it into a wedding dress for my lucky lady friend...........These are just some off the cuff quick ideas, no doubt I'll be able to come up with more creative ways to use this beautiful car cover. A parachute for base jumping could be another option..............I'm on a roll here, maybe I should just keep it. Save me. Hugh.
