Owner actually has a C4S wreck and has offered me the parts - without having gone too deeply into it I would image we're talking rack & dash mainly, although there is a different capacity fuel tank for the LH v RH, it may be the C4S one is the right one too....

Believe you've gotta cut out and change the firewall too, some of the looms etc. If they're no added cost, Id take it... if that C4S is a wreck, consider having them give it to you as a front cut.

One of the 3 x 996 GT3RS's in Tassie has just come up

https://www.carsales.com.au/cars/details/2004-porsche-911-gt3-rs-996-manual-my04/SSE-AD-6124973/?Cr=0

To my understanding a one owner car, Andrew purchased it new in the UK while he was working over there, came back to Tassie and brought car back with him.

Think most of the cars in Oz are red, blue would be quite rare??

 

PS took delivery of my GT3 yesterday, off to a "Driver Ed" day at Symmons Plains today with PCT.  Pics to follow later 🙂

Does the Roll Cage mean it couldn't be registered in Victoria, or other states?

That’s competing in price with the one at CTS in Sydney that one has half as many km’s on it both looks stunning though.

Talking to some guys that know today, he might have been 2nd owner??, purchased in Belgium apparently.  Apologies for misleading.

So cool!!! @TwoHeadsTas Stoked for you, glad to see it’s finally yours 

Thanks guys, purchase ended up being a bit protracted - problem with both seller and me being flat stick with other stuff.  Had a lot of fun at Symmons Plains yesterday, about 50kms worth 🙂  Getting used to the right hand gear change, fluffed it a few times, but it will come with practice I'm sure.......

Still an ignition issue to sort out, seems it needs a new diode in the system somewhere, I have the info about it from Pistonheads, will track down when I get a chance. Need to work out whether it's worth it to register or whether I run on permits (we can get 4 nominated trips a month on a $35 permit as far as I can tell, just need to do a bit of forward planning.....).  Registering will require CAMS logbook, which will require new harnesses at minimum - ones in it are dated 1998.....

Thanks for that Windsor, I have referred this on to a couple of mates (996.2 GT3  and 996.2 GT3RS owner, and the guy I bought my GT3 from who also has a 996.2 GT3RS) and they are very appreciative.  One says they will will him some beers during pub "discussions" !!!

Gents, quick question.  Presume there is a separate GT3 Driver's Handbook???  Anyway, need to know whether the torque settings for wheels nuts is other than the usual 130nm?

Can anyone advise?

I set mine @ 90ftlbs, no issues when breaks etc are at max temp.

I also use neverseaze on the threads to stop them locking up

White, 2nd best colour after Speed Yellow......

......If you’re happy to keep running into other common white & yellow GT3 ‘s whilst out for a spin. Or you could buy a rare midnight blue one! 😄👍

Is that a fair price ($175k) in today market - or a little over the top considering it's far from standard & looks like its been tracked...?
