  1. This thread is to help folks dig up history on their UK released Porsches. I've put a few years of effort into this one tackling it bit by bit and happy with the result. Here's the order I recommend getting the details in: 1. Certificate of Authenticity. 2. Original dealer records. 3. DVLA records. You could go a step further and contact the previous owners with the DVLA records. Yet to do this myself. --- Step 1: Go here for the official instructions: http://www.porsche.com/uk/accessoriesandservice/porscheservice/vehicleinformation/documents/ Or my procedure.. Email Customer.Assistance@porsche.co.uk, request the CoA form and tell them you have a UK Porsche but it is now located with you in Australia and request their banking details. Once you receive their reply with bank transfer details then pay the amount required on the form and email them with the bank transfer receipt number, transfer description details and attach the form containing your details. After a week or two, email them to check if the payment was received and if the Certificate is being processed. They’re very helpful so you shouldn’t have any drama. The most difficult bit is getting that bank transfer done. It'll turn up in the mail a few weeks later. Step 2: Straight forward. Get the original dealer info from the Certificate, find their website and contact email address and ask them for any info on your car. Explain the story to them so they understand why you want the info. Porsche Centre Colchester were more than happy to help me out. Step 3: The DVLA records, a challenging one. Tried this 2 different ways. Don't even bother trying to ask for the records yourself. You need to get someone there to act on your behalf like a relative or possibly a good friend. ..To be continued. I will expand on this more later as I have to go out now.
  2. After one last blast of my favourite route, my 2011 Carrera S has finally made it to Melbourne. All tucked up with her new room mate... Many thanks go to Dominic at personalimport.com.au for a hassle free import process. Highly recommended. Thanks to @Whytar for the tip!
  3. I emigrated here from UK a couple of years ago and brought over my 911 with me. A Porsche loving mate here was telling me the other day that the Carrera 3.2 was not imported here after '85 or '86 until the 964 came along in late '89. Is this right? That must have cost Porsche Australia a chunk of money! Does anyone know if this is correct?
  4. keep getting teased with ads like this. I know mere mortals can't import cars cars from overseas 'younger' than 1989, but Jap imports are around, and prices are so much better, so has anyone here done it, or know a way you can? http://www.japan-partner.com/Auto/24200/Porsche/911/car-for-sale.html
  5. I was doing a Google and came across this interesting website. Some nice Porsches and others for sale. Includes services like PPI, packing, shipping, insurance etc. Enjoy the eye candy http://www.usatoaus.com/buy.aspx
  6. hello I've just joined up to see if its worth me importing my porsche 928 S2 from the UK into Australia. I'm worried about selling it on and whether i'll get a decent price - i am not sure if people are put off by imports. The car is rust free, has a full service history - porsche specialist and main dealer. Its a 4.7litre V8 manual. Its not perfect but in very good condition - some very minor bits to make it perfect. I have been thinking of changing cars for a while but thought about importing it to tide me over until i find something i like. Any advice would be gratefully recieved. many thanks Simon
