  1. Do know anyone local that can fascilitate the transaction for you -- or at least prove the car is real? Can you have the seller do a PPI at a dealership near him -- at least you get some eyes on the vehicle and a little piece of mind. I'd be a little nervous. Heck for the price your probably paying -- flying out there, inspecting it, and handing over a cashiers check wouldn't be a bad idea. Then you can either drive it home -- or have it transported. just me, and I've bought 5 cars site unseen -- but this smells a little fishy. m Thanks for the reply man, I know the answer
  2. I have been on the market for either 2007 911 turbo or 2009 911 S. Finally found one 2007 911 turbo from a private seller. I am from west coast and seller is from east coast. Wants to do the deal through GOOGLE CHECKOUT. I am used to dealing through my bank but seller wants to get it through google checkout. Has anybody have experience buying a car through this service? I checked it out where I can buy small items but I do not know if they have service for buying cars. I appreciate for any input before I pull the trigger on this.
  3. I'm with Phil. Have you HEARD a GT3 at full chat? I rest my case. I will be test driving the '09 C2S next week so I will be a ble to really see and feel its ride. Although I have been spoiled withe options I have been using in my Benz like the nav, and nice ride of Merc., so I am looking at this C2S with this options. The '07 GT3 that I saw for the same price does not come with this options( basic CD) but I guess if I am driving the GT3 I would not caring for music or where I end up, just listening the sound coming from the engine and exhaust will be music to anyone's ears. I have bee
  4. it's been almost 3 years since I last posted in this forum. I sold my 2001 996 C4 back in may 2007 and have not posted since. I am looking into buying a newer porsche 911 but needs the experts help. I have look into pre-owned 2009 C2S with decent options. look into 2007 turbo and GT3's as well especially mileage mid-20000s, reasoning is the prices of this 3 models are almost the same ( probably $5000 difference per e-bay prices ).Please help me make a decision. should I go for newer 2009 C2S( low mileage) or go for 2007 turbo or GT3?
  5. An acquaintance of mine has a 1978 Porsche 911 turbo wide body, I do not know the exact specs but I saw it before with race stickers/decals of that famous porsche race car driver/tandem? I am not familiar with this model year so I am asking if anyone knows. I asked my friend before if he is going to let it go and he said to the right person and I guess to the right price. It has 20,000 + miles. He collects race cars. He also has a ferrari 308 ? the one on magnum PI. So I know he takes care of his cars.I would like to know how much should I offer?
  6. I was at the dealership last week and was looking at the new well newer 997 c4s. Exploring on how much the trade in vallue for my 2001 C4 with 37,300 miles as I was interested with the 997. This all broke down as they only want $33,000 for my 2001C4. I left the dealership feeling frustrated that my car is only worth that amount. I will look into selling the car privately. I do have an idea of how much I wanted for my car, at or near $40,000. Is this asking too much or it is just fair. My car has never seen the track. except for some rock chips the paint has no dents or scratches. No mechanica
  7. I have a 2001 C4 coupe. Yesterday my pasenger window open midway for no apparent reason at all. i thought I accidentally press the button so I tried to close it surprise it won't close. i was cueing for a car wash at that time so I left the line and went home instead. the down button worked but it won't close. I opened the area where the window control button were and switched it with the driver side button and I was able to close it. I thought it might be the window button has gone bad. Today as I was driving home it open halfway again, this time I was able to close it. Do you think this a ba
  8. That was a bad wreck. I think he was going too fast that the roll cage did not even hold-up. Condolence to the family anf friends
  9. I think most us porsche owners does not want porsche to writing us checks but for porsche to be more sympathetic admit the fact that their product and its components were unreliable. I have a 1999 ML 430 and very grateful to the person who sued Mercedes Benz for engine failures of their MY 1998-2000 ML series. This was not even because of the engine itself but due to maintenance misunderstanding. The oil that Mercedes recommends was Mobil 1 0W-40 but for some reason this guy apparently used conventional oil and his engine failed. He sued Mercedes for this and I guess he won because I am a reci
  10. I guess I will have to just top it. now what is the mix of the coolant and water?
  11. May I suggest going to other forum like 6speedonline. a lot of members have done aftermarket headunit and I think they would know what kind of wiring harness you are looking for.
  12. I have a 2001 C4 and ever since I had it I guess it has not been serviced for coolant change. Is this necessary? I have read in some post that it is life time unless you got leak. is this true? If wanting to do a complete coolant change how is it done? just simple drain or do I need the vacuum system to flush the cooling system? thanks for response. :clapping:
  13. I think the RMS issue should also be included in this suit. This is good number to show a trend that the engine and its components are unreliable. I have a 2001 C4 and have RMS leak. I also have tapping sound at first start in the morning but disappears when the engine warms up. No CEL and but who knows what's lurking inside.
  14. 2001 C4 with 35,000 miles, one RMS has not yet done due to awaiting time for the clutch replacement probably at 40,000 miles. O2 sensor replaced (DIY) driver side after cat. No other problems. No tracks though.
