  1. Thanks for the advice. I already got stopped a few times and each time it costed me 45 euros which I guess is fine. I just don't go above 162km/h. Cheers, JC
  2. Hi guys, I have a question for thos of you who lives in snowy countries. I am going to take for the first time my C4 Cab to the Alpes in France for a 1 week ski holidays. Could you please give me some advice regarding any things I should take care of such as: Any special care for the roof top. I don't have a hardtop, this is the usual standard black soft-top? I believe I will need some snow chains. Do you think I could use auto socks (http://www.autosock.co.uk/) or is this not working and I shoud purchase the Porsche snow chains? Anything else I may have forgotten? Thanks for yo
  3. Living in the UK myself and relatively soon needing a tyre replacement on the front wheels, I have obtained a quote for Dunlops 9090 (I am very happy with this model, I've had no probs such as noise or vibrations)and it was just £133 for the front and £200 for the rear per tyre, all inclusive, i.e. valves, balancing and VAT. The wheel alignment can't be much more on top and I would recommend "Central Tyres" where I have had a good service on previous cars, rather than go to Porsche garages... Thanks, I will contact them tomorrow to get a quote from them. There is no way I would pay Porsc
  4. Agreed. In London in between Porsche West London and Porsche Mayfair, we don't have the best client relationship managers around.
  5. Hi, First I would like to thank all contributors to these great forum, I did use it quite a lot since I purchase my first Porsche last April/May. This help newbies in the Porsche ownership world to have a better understanding of the car. As mentioned above, I purchased a Porsche 996 Carrera 4 convertible from 10/2002 with only 20,000 miles so far. I was very happy with the car and purchased it from a Porsche Centre in Hamburg as a Porsche Approved car together with the Porsche Warranty for one year. Yesterday, the steering wheel assistance broke down. Apparently this is mainly due to
  6. I would say a liter every 2,000km to 3,000km. I thought it was much, but nothing compared with your story. Any identified reason why this is the case? JC
  7. Hi, Good for you as you'll have a brand new engine. I also have a 10/02 C4 Cab, could you let me know what do you mean by burning a lot of oil as I usually pu a lot in it too. Thanks, JC
  8. OK. So I guess next Friday for the 20,000 miles servicing I will ask Porsche to adjust the headlights. Too bad. Thanks for your help Lauren and have a good day. I am off to the pub now. :renntech: JC
  9. I was stopped by the police in France 3 weeks ago. My speedo was set-up on the cruise control at 166km.ph (103.2mph) while the laser gun of the police officer did say 159km.ph (98.79 mph). This is 4.4% lower than the mesured speed, and in the 10% range. JC
  10. Unfortunately not as the light will automatically level using a sensor. The owner's manual only relates to standard lights I believe and not to the Bi-Xenon one. I saw on some threads that there is a sensor located somewhere that you can slightly adjust to aim the lights. I just cannot figure out where it is. Here is the most relevant thread I could find. http://www.renntech.org/forums/index.php?s...hl=litronic+aim Thanks anyway. JC
  11. Thanks for your interest Lauren. The car is actually MY02 and bixenon. JC
  12. Hi Folks, I am sorry to bother you with another Litronic discussion as I already did browse quite a few on the forum, but unfortunately I could not find any answers. I have a 996 C4 Cab from 10/02 with Litronic fitted on it. The aim is very low right now and I hardly can drive at night so far. I read on the forum that you can adjust the sensor manually to level the lights to a higher position. But I could not find any thread relating to where is the Litronic sensor located. Any help would be greatly appreciated, and also save me a few bucks for a beer :cheers: . Cheers, JC :re
  13. The analog speedo will be in Km/h on a German car. You can change over between mph and kph on the digital speedo by twisting a button. Thanks very much! I was a little concerned that maybe the European clusters didn't have the Canadian / US facility. Thanks again Hi, I also imported in the UK a 996 C4 Conv from Porsche Hambourg and got it through the DVLA. The speedo is not an issue as you can easily change from mlph to kmph and vice versa. The main issue was to get the headlights from EU standard to UK standard for the MOT. I only managed to go through it with patches so fa
  14. Try removing your idle control valve (left side of throttlebody) and clean it with carb spray. How do you access the idle control valve please. have the same issue after adding oil? Thanks. JC
