It would want to be perfect for that money, just my opinion, yep, i get the rebuild but you can't drive a car without an engine.

My thoughts are it's a 3.6 so non matching numbers and that's what's held up a sale but still, with $25k worth of full rebuilt engine, that offsets the non matching penalty by  plenty.

Have just sent them a message to ask whether a 3.4 or 3.6. Will report back.

That's my thinking too. If you're willing to forego the matching numbers/future sale thing it's a good car. Think I recall a small wear mark on the drivers seat, but otherwise it's nice inside and overall.

Yeah, I'm with you... and it looks like at least engine mounts need doing. 

 I think you might be right there mate. Seem to recall someone else mentioning that when it was first advertised

Does cable throttle work on a 3.6? The way I read it it's the original 3.4 engine that's been rebuilt... reckon the 3.6 references are a typo. Quick phone call would sort it... but it's more fun speculating whilst sipping a cup of tea in bed.

Engine mounts are a 1hr job.

@Tips 

 I have tomorrow off if you want me to try and take it for a spin? I know Carlo there, as he's sold a couple of cars on my recommendation to buyers. And just to let people know I don't make anything out of it, just helping interstate people out with a car they might be keen on 👍

I would recommend a spin Lee what else would you do on a day off!!

if your in the area it would be good to have more reliable detail on the discrepancies or required work as agree with Steve its top dollar just depends on how much more wiggle room in the price. I know with Dutton’s there is usually around 15% as a starting point on a high side priced car.

 I work harder on a day off than I do onsite mate! 

 It's 5 minutes from home and Carlo will tell me whatever I want to know that he is aware of, as he's pretty open to talk to

I’m heading down to CTS on sat with a mate to take the C4S they have for a spin. He’s Pretty keen to get a 996 and likes the big hips on the C4S. For him it must be a manual and condition is everything.  Most I have see are tips and a lot more km’s on the clock.  I’m keen to have a drive to see what it’s like as a comparison to a C2, as that’s probably where I’ll end up.

@TwoHeadsTas did you happen to see what work had been done for the $25k? I look at it every second day online 😍. If it’s still around after I settle on a house next week I might be tempted to organise a biz trip to Adelaide and have a ganda, as it’s getting to a tempting price and although has k’s on its clock,  the $25k freshen up engine work (not sure about suspension) could be a tipping point vs some of the others for sale with around 130-150kms on the clock 🤪

Just get off your ass and pull the trigger... as long as the car is correct and presents well, just do it... just ask them if you can use my car as collateral in the interim of your settlement. 😜 You have my grace

If he is looking at spending $100k on a C4S because he likes the hips he should take a look at the silver manual 996 Turbo mentioned in the 996/997 Turbo thread with 130k kms and <$100k. Way better value if the condition is good

@D2000 Yep he has 996t on the buy list so will be chatting with him about that as well. He is pedantic about km’s and whilst that mileage doesn’t faze me, I think 130 would play with his head. We will see. Price is not the determining factor here, it’s condition and value. He is in the collector space so would rather pay 10-15k over for a lower km car as it’s a long term hold.

I think we will work through it one way or another, I just seem to have the luck of the draw with this kind of shit. Nothing is ever straight forward, try as I might...

That C4s is a bit overpriced BUT it looks to be quite excellent, knock of 5k and I think he should be very happy overall.

Pricewise I think that sin can be forgiven sometimes these days, easily rectified usually

^X10 Yep that price for that c4S appears over top dollar  even with a 15% retail haircut and surely you would take that $100k  X50 996 turbo  (down to a five figure number) all grab it  all day every day over the minty 4s providing the 996 turbo has no major issues ( would only have to be average condition). The minty 4s rubber ain't that minty over an average 996 turbo and the minimum 2k you knock off the purchase price goes a decent way  with a good detailer in terms of paint and leather rejuvenation.  Plus if you think the turbo is too quick, just loosen a boost line so there is a slight boost leak and performance wise it will still run rings around the 4s when behind the wheel.

Hmm. So he has driven both cars back to back???. Also Needs to put some dollars away as original  rubber bits with 52k ain't much better than original rubber bits on higher km car of the same vintage. Plus if he only puts 10k on the 996 turbo over the next 5 years that's only an average of 6400km  a year. 

Do you concern yourself with ims bearings in a c4s???.
