Interior is fairly basic, standard seats are uncomfortable

theyre **** to do anything much more involved than servicing, as theres no room above the engine at all to remove anything so engine and box need to be dropped together:

heres one i prepared earlier:

997.2 GT3



C63 AMG - Went pretty well, seat of the pants feel id say its only slightly slower than the old (supercharged v8) e55 amg



993 RS - This thing has alot of work done to it, and actually revs quicker than a motorbike. Its a proper race car........ Very fun to drive on the street








Blue Gt3rs




Not many of these in AUS at all..... suprisingly fast (i think its 0-100is around 4 sec) and just mikes like a hoverboard noise from back to the future when accelling

apparently they get upto 400kms to a charge (a full charge costs about $3 in electricity) which isnt too bad at all!

theyre too small inside though and the fact that theyre hand built shows; not in a good way either.
