ok here is my first personal encounter with stuttgart service.

I called to enquire about the gas struts for my hood .
within 10 minutes i got a reply with the price, and the date available for the instalment.
price $65 each. service schedule availability is 2 weeks later. Labor charge is $80+gst.
???!!!????!?!??!?!?!?

After i told the tech that it is a 5 min job, he immediately said they would do it for me as long as i bring the car down.
However i decided to just buy the parts for $135 and install it myself to save up the $80 "labor" cost.
Time taken for me to replace both struts = less than 5 mins
Tool require = one screwdriver

Fairly good service but ridiculous pricing.
Luckily I'm a super hands on guy who is good with such things.
So now the hood springs up quick again. Yay!

Bro, you think we all say Stuttgart is cut-throat for fun, is it? laugh.gif

They even put PML to shame. The difference between PML and BVO is nothing compared to the difference between SG and a third-party Porsche specialist (like Flat6).

Yup Stuttgart labor charges are super cut throat.
Parts cost a bit high but can accept.

Flat6 is too busy and seems more skilled in 964s and 993s.
Not that they cant do 996 or 997 but i think they are more old school kind.

Is $35k a year depreciation reasonable for a second hand 997 C2S?

No pls!!!

I always find it depressing whenever ppl go kit up their exotic rides just for that individual touch...

But all it does is ruin the recipe. But that my opinion...


Hah, speaking of TechArt kits, there is one 997 Turbo in sgcarmart decked out from head to toe in TechArt kit. Really OTT!

Pure paper depreciation after PARF rebate at the end of 10th year, excluding body. This kind of car is likely to be dereg'ed and exported.

In australia, using a 2002 model year 996 carrera2 as an example, a 911 is going for about A$60k-&70k in the market. A 2005 997 carrera2 is selling at A$120k.

Yup but you can forget it if you think you can sell it for that price.

Of course not lah, all the middlemen and importer/exporter plus retail dealer would have already makan the bulk.

What is the typical body export value of a 10 year old Porsche C2 in Singapore? Probably $30k to $40k?

I already got one (and a supp card for my wife). Nice design, but I'd wished they'd used a 911 instead of a Panamera in front. Useful for me because UOB is my main CC and I fill exclusively Shell V-power for my Porker, but other than that, it's useless except for bragging rights.

anyone got a good bodyworks workshop to recommend. thinking of installing GT2 bumper airvent grill but i scared the bugger spoil my bumper when cutting the groove. and not sure if they can do it within a few hours. thanks


Yew Lip in conjunction with BVO may be able to do it. If i am not wrong, BVO started servicing 997s a couple of years ago.

My sentiments exactly. The non-GT carrera (C2, C2S, C4, C4S, T4, T4S) is the quintessential example of an understated sports car. Even the rear spoiler is tactfully hidden and only deploys at the appropriate speed. The chassis is also more curvaceous and sexy than outright aggressive and masculine. Only the carrera's hunkered down stance and fat rear tyres hint at what lies beneath. As such i feel that the car better suits the clean uncluttered look than one that is replete with stickers and body kits.

You saw my ad on bmw-sg? Guards red is certainly not everyone's cup of tea. The color shows off the curvy lines of the car very well. The carrera being a small car also tends to suit the brighter colors. However someone who prefers a fiercer, more masculine, and perhaps more tactical look will probably want to go with the darker or metallic colors. Thankfully the car is now with a new owner who as far as i can tell is lavishing it with the care and attention that it deserves.
