Lost the code to my Becker CDR-220 on my 2000 996. The serial number is X5037979. A 24/99 came up after turning the knob on the radio once more: I don't know if it's relevant or not, but posted it just in case. Thank you for your help!
cibergypsy replied to cibergypsy's topic in 997-1 Series Part Number RequestsFunny that you mention that... exactly what I've done since then! LOL. Thx!
cibergypsy replied to cibergypsy's topic in 997-1 Series Part Number RequestsThanks for the reply. My car has the self-dimming mirror option. Any idea where in the mirror it should go? Maybe to hold the wires that come down into it?
cibergypsy posted a topic in 997-1 Series Part Number RequestsI had the windshield on my 2006 Carrera S replaced over a year ago and saw a tiny black plastic part on the passenger side floor the next day while vacuuming it. It has part number 996.610.222.00 and I checked with the dealer and they couldn't tell me anything about it. It looks like some sort of clip, is in black plastic and also has PA6-GF30 below the 996 part number. Thanks for any help!
Mussberger, it's too bad I only found this out today! The kit has already been sold and it is exactly the one I was looking for. TRE sells it for a lot more at their website. Thanks for posting your reply, though.
cibergypsy replied to pckau's topic in 997-1 Series (Carrera, Carrera 4, Carrera 2S, Carrera 4S)Both MKI and MKII Aerokit rear deck lids look almost identical except that there is a gurney flap on the MKII that is not in the MKI - you can buy the gurney flap from the GT3 and then both rear deck lids would be even closer. The biggest difference is in the front and is not one that is so different as to undergo a lighting upgrade and maybe a rear bumper also with the respective lights just to make it coherent. If you really also want to do a lighting upgrade, then the MKII route would be the one but, otherwise, there is really no point in doing so as both versions are very, very similarly looking.
Thanks for the info as this will surely save me some $$$. I think I'll try the brake ducts sold at Automotion... have you seen them and, if so, what is your opinion on them? Thanks again. When you got your displacement increase and different camshaft, who programmed you the chip?
cibergypsy posted a topic in 997-1 Series (Carrera, Carrera 4, Carrera 2S, Carrera 4S)Never mind.
Hello, Does anyone know who sells the adapters, proportioning valve (if needed), lines etc. - minus the calipers themselves - in order to upgrade the brakes on my 87 Carrera take the calipers from an early Boxster 2.5L? I read about this on various British magazines and one gets to keep the front rotors of the Carreras but needs to change the rears to those of an SC. Sounds like a good upgrade, specially if one wants to have more power by increasing displacement or by other methods, so that the car can cope and brake as it should. Thanks for the info. if found.
Their website is www.griffiths.com and there you can find everything needed to make the car a true, year round car. I live in FL and the heat here is unbearable in the Summer. I have no problems leaving my car in the Sun at noon for a long time and then getting in it, turning on the A/C and have to bring it down from max after a while because it's too cold. Sorry for not responding sooner but I haven't visited until now. :)
cibergypsy replied to cibergypsy's topic in 997-1 Series (Carrera, Carrera 4, Carrera 2S, Carrera 4S)Yes, it does as well as the full kit.
I have an '87 Coupé that I bought in 2007 with 68k miles. It was in immaculate condition and I just did a few things to it, as soon as I got it, to ensure everything was the way it needed to be as far as mechanicals are concerned. I have stuck to the book when it comes to maintenance and you can expect about $400 more or less every 15k miles for the service that includes the valve adjustments. Other than that, add some oil when needed (it is very important to regularly look at the oil level) and rear tires every 12-15k miles and twice those many miles for front ones depending on how you drive. My car now has 95k miles and it is my daily driver. No complaints at all! If you find a good one, there will be no regrets. I have taken it to about 5 or 6 DEs and it hasn't let me down once. My tire consumption figures I mentioned earlier take this into account as I use the same tires I have both for the street and for DEs. If you live in a hot state like me, I'd invest some money in the A/C as it really is a joke as it comes from the factory. I bought the Griffiths system and have 0 regrets or complaints. My car cools just as good and as fast as my 2006 Carrera S with this system on. I wouldn't have even considered the car as a daily driver if it weren't for the possibility of upgrading the A/C. I hope this helps.
