  1. so there is no way in the world you can have the roll cage and a sunroof either.. does the sunroof not slide within the roof?????
  2. congrats colin a mint looking car. I know theres always the turbo and the gt3 camp and I am swaying towards the gt3 albeit i have driven a 996 turbo and that was one grin i couldnt get rid of for a day. Has anyone taken a gt3 and a TT for a test and what were your impressions..... this is the 996 model on another note: I have just received notification that we will be getting about 50 - 60 GT3's here in Australia by August....
  3. Ok so Im looking at the TT and GT3 in a 997. Im really warming toward the GT3 albeit the TT has more grunt. To me its the appeal of having a road car thats from the same ilk as the supercup car. Im looking at a few pointers from people accross the board and there view. May I add no Im not going to track the car.....
  4. 288 thousand k's when converted. fair bit of driving. heres and example of what you would get for the same dollars and mileage in Australia. http://carsales.com.au/pls/carsales/!c...rch_distance=25
  5. actually heres a question from left field. My cousin is looking at getting a 99 Boxster. He has had a quick look over the vehicle and it states 60000K on the ODO however my cuz is of the mind that it may have done a little more like 85 K. I understand that BMW has the original mileage locked into the ECU so if they do a diagnostic they can bring up the original mileage that way it can discount any clusters that have been changed to lower mileage. Does the boxster have the same thing. I ask this after reading that the odo's can be changed.... thanks in advance
  6. If I may climb out from my rock and say to me it seems more like a 50 - 60 Km/h accident at the most.... not 130 -140 km/h lost from a bend!!!!!!!!!!!
  7. cool, you lot get all the good stuff we get adverts in magazines no tv stuff for us...
  8. this is massively left of centre for a answer. I noticed on some of the pics from the factory the same sticker. Could it be that the robotic equipment scans the bar code to determine the type of vehicle it is hence allowing the correct spot welds to be placed on that vehicle. Like I said I could be totally wrong....... :drive:
  9. cool got the switch rhd and matt so were good to go. bummer about the rear mirror..... we have a few places were you paralel park but the kerbs are way high....... not wheel friendly...
  10. hi all, is there any link to fitting the 996t spoiler switch as a hack for the boxsters. thanks. Update: disregard found it... While Im here i may as well save thread space and ask this here. On the 996's they had a provision with the outer mirror to dip down when you reversed. I assume this was so you could see the kerb and save the wheels. Is there any way we can have this system for a 986.... if so mine is a manual if that matters???
  11. ummmm, loren or toolpants can any of you tell me if you look in the tsb items L, M and N seem to be pins for connecting wires to???? If this is the case I am wondering is there an alternative to this as its about a 4 week wait from germany for these 3 items.. I just received my cdc4 today great littel unit now i just need to get it fitted thanks
  12. thanks. i believe its a matter of drilling the holes to screw it on. i would say your going to need a hoist to get the car up to do a proper job. a friend had one fitted to his boxster many years ago and loved it.......it's a toss up between a totally scratched out bumper or a boomerang that saves same and can be replaced at a later stage if needed.
  13. i assume you mean the pics... they are on the home page of renntech.org. being a nut who likes watching metal form into a car i would love to see a vid of same. i know mini had one for the new cooper a while ago which was pretty cool....
