  1. Could anyone recommend a relatable / honest mechanic to rebuild a motor or gear box for 912? What should I be expecting (rough ball park) for this to cost.? thanks
  2. I am looking at purchasing and importing a Porsche 911SC or 911s (2.7L) from South Africa to Australia and need advise/help with the following: Does any know a reliable Porsche mechanic in South Africa who I can arrange to inspect the car around Pretoria? What is the safest way to purchase the car and make payment to make sure it don't get ripped off. What is the realistic cost of importing a car by the time it's cleared customs - if anyone has a rough breakdown of cost it would appreciated. (dollar amount /percentage after import) Can you import an outlaw or do AUS customs make it difficult with the modifications. If you have an experienced importer who can assist in South Africa please share contact details. Any information or help with the above would be appreciated. Thanks, Paul.
  3. I own a 1977 Porsche 911 Carrera, I'm moving to Canberra in the beginning of 2020. I was wordering if anyone knows of any good shops in the Canberra/Sydney area that do restorations? main things would be a paint job and overhaul the engine.
  4. 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
  5. I received a Xmas gift that was not quite the right one for me... as my car is an 1987 chassis with a 1994 engine. If you're local (bayside brighton area in melb)... feel free to come and pickup or if prepared to pay postage, I can send to you. Its un-opened so cant comment on its content, level of detail, how techie or non-techie it describes stuff, etc...but they're on ebay for $30-$40. Here's one for nicks or for the price of postage or just a drive to briiighton, darlings!! Here it is: - for 911s upto 1985 And the back cover if you're interested:
  6. Hey guys, not sure if this is the correct area to post or not, but i'm after a suggestion for a Mechanic in the greater Melbourne area for a 944 non turbo. Just want some basic work done, before doing a road trip to Brisbane, and make sure all running well. I'm not familiar with the car yet, so after a bit of a thorough inspection, to find anything i should be aware of before stretching legs. Once in Brisbane, i'll again be taking to the shop (T&D, so similar and/or follow-up) so this is a one off exercise.. Not great for the mechanic in melbourne i know, but i'd prefer to have trained eyes looking over the key areas before i end up doing something stupid in the middle of no-where. Suggestions greatly appreciated.
  7. hi Mates, Picked up Cayenne turbo 2004 last week. Initially the expansion was leaking so i got it fixed from the dealer, after i had to go get the leak checked from Porsche Center in Parramatta sydney. I am after a good mechanic worthy of doing maintenance and identifying any issues without ripping me off . i m located near to Blacktown. thanks in advance cheers
  8. As some of you may or may not know local Porsche specialist Spencer Harrison from Harrison's RRR recently had an accident. I just wanted to make mention that he is well, on the mend and already back in the workshop doing what he does best - working on Porsches. Seems he is better at this than riding motorbikes, although I understand he is also pretty handy on his Gas Gas (or was at least!). He currently has my custody of my 77 and thought it was worth a mention to anyone concerned or unsure of the effects his condition may have on the workshop. Seems business as usual! Over and out.
