or kumho MX which has proven to be economical and performs extremely well
As we know prices right now in the heat of summer is quite high and dealers are not willing to talk just because they figure they'll sell the car anyway to a sucker... But from past experience with performance cars... the dealers usually drop prices and willing to negotiate deeper into the asking price thus making a dent in winter... does it apply to the 911s?
jvanquish replied to Flakarter's topic in 996 Series (Carrera, Carrera 4, Carrera 4S, Targa)do you guys just buy OEM from th dealer? no one buys aftermarket ?
jvanquish replied to jvanquish's topic in 996 Series (Carrera, Carrera 4, Carrera 4S, Targa)actually 2000s at the dealer around my area sells around 40-45k usd! while 1999s and 2000s sell privately or at 'unauthorized' dealers for 30-40 :/ i am not sure that its worth 5 grand over... :unsure: any comments?
jvanquish replied to jvanquish's topic in 996 Series (Carrera, Carrera 4, Carrera 4S, Targa)well i have some uber stiff JIC coilovers on my Z right now spring rates are killers - 10k f 10k r hahaha... but it handles like its on rails and i've never test drove another car thats similar to that (no lean, pitch, roll anything!) im anxious to test drive my first 911 but there arent a lot of 1999-2000s in my area , can in that sense can i test drive any 996 C2 and still get the same feel, meaning are they all under the same suspension? ... :unsure:
Hey everyone, i currently own a Nissan 350 - I purchased about 7-8 months ago (It was a 2003 preowned right now it has 15,000 miles - I've slapped on track items like JIC FLTA2 Coilovers, Full brake setup, harness bar/kit, wheels, bolt ons etc etc) ... I've always wanted the Porsche 911 and I would like to own a piece of history so... here is what im asking The years im looking at is probably 1999-2000 ( earlier 996 models) and i've seen prices ranging anywhere from 30-40,000 USD with milages all over the place... but I'd love to have a low milage car something thats 50k miles or less! What i want to spend? I want to spend about 30-35,000 USD for the car I dont think any warranty would actually matter since the readings i've done relating to clutch (wear and tear item) wouldnt matter anyway because for obvious reasons... I know that for my Z, i can beat the crap out of the car in a spirited run having it reek of clutch and brake smell and it would still work... also the parts for replacement + labour is obviously cheaper. I know that Porsches are basically bulletproof in terms of construction and build (from consumer reports they claim the porsches are among top reliable cars with Honda, Lexus etc etc) but reliable based on driving like a grandma or will it still be reliable if I take it to the limit... (considering that a clutch replacement is 17 hours of labour + about a grand in parts from the dealer - figur... 2500 dollars while the clutch for the Z if I get the clutch + flywheel kit from nismo its basically 800 bucks + about 5 hours labour figure 1200 or half the price)... As you can see I buy a car to drive, not just to pose it around the pub... and I do think the Porsche 911 as one of the top performance cars out there should be driven... Please enlighten me :notworthy:
