Who's talking about buying here?

If there was a cheaper way, everyone would be doing it.

A move to NZ is being considered. The opportunities there seem pretty good and it's only 4 hours away, but it might just be dreaming.

OK, I see. I agree the income tax arrangements there are very tempting. I've never been there, I'm ashamed to say.

The trouble is, the PDK is so good, I'm still not sure which I'd have in a GTS. The essential item for me though is one you'll probably never see ordered in Australia - PCCB. Everyone says the standard brakes are fine - and they are - but the extra bite of the carbon brakes adds so much to the driving experience.

Anyway, what colour are you going for? ;)

Mark, are the Porker CCB's any better than Ferraris versions? I found the Scud brakes to be pretty grabby at low speeds and lacked "feel" so they were hard to modulate. I also managed to get brake fade after a few laps at Phillip Island on the one time it was used by me on a track. So all up, not that stellar IMO. They are also noisy at low speeds; but I believe that is a characteristic of CCB's generally.

I will be interested to see what they are like on the Speciale. They are the next generation of CCB's and the same kit used on that LaLaLaLa star wars thing.

NZ would be about the worst place in the world for my Profession, so no move for me that's for sure.

Australia is still a great place to live; but at the rate they are fucking it up I'm not sure how long that will last.

I so hope they do a R version of this.

Haven't the new M3/4 reviews been flat, I've not seen a glowing one at all.

The Porsche carbon brakes are full of feel, powerful and silent whether hot or cold. They can be heartstopping though when really wet - just for a split second there is nothing.

The Italia brakes were a touch wooden until warm, and were then faultless. No noise or grabbing. The 650S brakes reminded me of the 458.

Yellow callipers do look good though don't they? Then again P charges $20k, unless you buy a turbo S or GT2RS where they are standard, as they should be for their price.

Another plus is zero brake dust lol

I hope so too.  With a shorter diff, carbon brakes, buckets, sports suspension and more power, it could a fantastic car.
