No mention of hail damage or photos of service records. Why is that I wonder 🤔😂

Has it been hail damaged?

Inquired about this car weeks ago. Was waiting on some pics to go online. Telephone ping pong, love it when 2 different sales women return your call, but can't answer any questions. 

Finally get onto a salesman and he mentions "Has anyone advised you of the hail damage?" Ahhhhhh no!

"Don't worry it will be taken care of under insurance, it took it suprisingly well compared to our Hyundais"😂😂 

Hail about the size of 20c piece @12-15 dents mainly on roof and bonnet.

He was kind enough to get photos for me of service books which I went over with a fine tooth comb.

I swear dealers just see stamps in book, but don't actually read any of it.

Like John Travolta says in the Phenomenon " Details Bob" 😂

Assuming it will need to be listed on WOVR?

What’s your thoughts on it? Steer clear?!

Did the customer hand in any history of receipts for repairs over time of ownership? If I have only service books to go by it doesn't give me much to go by and raises more questions. 1. No airbag system checks 2. Has coolant ever been replaced 3. Yearly inspection on 28/11/06 should have been a minor service. As such car covered 40,000km without an oil change. Otherwise seems maintained not too bad while car in NSW. Since car living in QLD has had very limited use. 4. Last time had a major service was 30/06/2011 so possibly still has original belts. So belts and fuel filter @ 35,000km overdue. 5. No oil changes recorded for just over 4yrs. 13/8/13 - 13/9/17. 6. Also currently overdue for yearly inspection at the very least. 7. Preventative maintenance such as water pump and air oil separator and life remaining on clutch? Is the hail dent removal repair going through insurance? As this will effect any future and current resale.

Just a snippet from email. Couldn't give me any more info on car apart from 2 keys and still original IMS.

I guess thats the problem when dealing with car yard.

Was told they would use paintless dent removal guy. My question to those out there, is the frunk lid aluminum? Has this compromised paint to panel integrity?

Any insurance repair record and people start getting doubts 🤔 Haven't seen personally as currently in Bangkok and even then Melb based.

But it has 2 keys still right? That's gotta be worth at least $60,000.

Nah, it’s worth $60,000 because the other ones that haven’t sold are priced at $60,000

Will only need to be listed on WOVR if an insurance claim is lodged and it's written off by the insurance company ... and then it wouldn't be able to be registered ..

Even if it was fixed by the insurance company, there would be no record of it unless it was written off ... in which case it wouldnt be able to be registered ...

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?

Value depends on a lot of things. How many owners. How well it's been serviced. Whether it has any upgrades. etc. etc.

If it has had the IMS replaced, that's a $3-4k premium for the headache saved.

Lost track of this thread as I've been out of the loop for most of the week.  Good looking earlier .1 manual silver at Richmonds, not sure if it has been mentioned before. $58,900

http://richmonds.com.au/portfolio/1998-porsche-911-carrera/

I think the comments centered on engine mounts needing to be replaced based on the pictures. Also at 190k kms, it maybe due for engine "revitalisation".

I think it depends if he wants to sell, or whether he wants to admire it on Carsales for months. 

There are a few on Carsales in the $60-$65 range that have sat there forever. Overpriced IMO. 

With IMS done (and FSH), advertised at about $55 should sell for between $50 and $55 fairly quickly for an 02. 

Disclaimer: I'm in the market - so have a vested interest in lower prices, but have attempted impartiality. :)

As a favour I will give him $25,000 cash. It'll save him the hassle of taking photos, putting it up on CarSales and having to deal with numb-nut "buyers".

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.

@poli84 mine had the original stereo replaced by a double DIN too. Wish the previous owner had kept the original as I’m tempted to change it back now.

Also quite easy to add AUX to the older non MOST head units too, nothing like a nice original radio...

Poli if he I s looking to price it well and look for a quick hassle free sale it might be worth getting him to post on PFA prior to Carsales as there are a few 996 buyers here and removes the attraction to drop kick low ballers and fraudsters.

🤣 I was going to suggest I pay $1k  over @Dave986 $25k offer and he wouldn’t even need to wash or vacuum it for the sale 😉
