Interesting - last time I did the check, the Reg number belonged to a early model Commodore. 

Scammer must have upgraded. 

maybe we should all report it

There has never been a phone number listed. 

I have sent an enquiry message every time - never a phone call back. 

 

Ahh didn't know that.  Maybe he's trying a reversal on capturing old mate coming off the oil rigs!

Still waiting for contact🤷‍♂️I’m keen as !

Ok, my conspiracy theory is he’s wanting to buy a car but trying to artificially drag pricing down.🤔

Thought you bought a car Jos?

I've spoken with the guy. 

Said it's one of a few cars he owns, originally Brisbane delivered.

This ad was up 12 months ago, same price, same no response to enquiry.

I tried on a few occasions to contact the seller and every time, same silence.

It's been on and off a few times, each time the same thing happens. Seller is a tool .. don't know what his end game is but in a market where it should be a $160k car, it's still $118k

If it looks like a duck and quacks like a duck, it's a duck .. caution required on this one! ..

I have but am somewhat having buyers remorse kind of,if this car was available a few weeks prior and is as advertised , even though I actually got what I wanted , yes I love my car but.. 😁  🤷‍♂️ I wish at least  I had a few more options .
But I am willing to give at least first impressions re visual presentation for any interstate buyer before they commit to traveling to check it out. Apparently it’s less than 10ks from my place  so not an issue for me. Also I feel the urge to solve the mystery re this car.

I'm buying a 911 for the driving experience first and foremost, so I agree with you.

Forgot to ask to be honest.

 Good lad. Especially the last bit 👍

Sorry to hear that, Joz. What is it about your car that's giving you remorse?

EDIT: You don't need to answer that.

I prefer your colour combination Joz, with an 18" wheel change though which I see you are working on :)

I'll let you know in a few days once the PPI is done, I put a deposit on this car today :Passusabeer:

So I bought the silver '01 turbo manual from CS. What's the general consensus on how much I should insure it for?

Also, stamp duty! WTF. Criminal.

Ahhh, understood. A turbo's a turbo my friend. Many would be envious to be in your position I'm sure.

Aaah insurance time.

Well done obviously the car checked out ok 👍 

I would be trying for what ever the car owes you , full purchase price and on road costs .

I have just gone through the motions as well .

Yep, we love supporting our govmint as often as we can😢 viva la taxes!

No, Australian delivered.

I'm a little bit pleased with myself.

Figured out the most important dash setting yet?  After the novelty wears off, If its not tuned, get it tuned.  As a boost junky, these  cars are next level when you see >= 1.0 on that boost gauge.

A turbo's a turbo perhaps, but not convinced doing a third gear pull at WOT using predominately your thumb with last century tech is as satisfying as going even older school tech and having to engage your left leg.

Ok what’s the boost get to in standard tune?

From what I read the general consensus is 0.7, however, people report seeing higher (0.8) under differing circumstances i.e. high altitude.
