  1. Hello, I have a 2000 C2 (60,000 Miles) which I've been very happy with - wonderful car, beautiful ride and very few repairs. I'm considering buying a Turbo. My question is - what can I expect in terms of annual maintenance and further, are the twin turbos generally reliable, or should I expect to be a regular visitor to my local Porsche dealer? Many thanks for the input! AK
  2. Sounds like it might be the starter - check it out before replacing the battery. AK
  3. Thanks for your help! As long as that measurement includes the mirrors - the C2 will fit and I can then store it in my garage next winter - rather than have to pay for offsite indoor storage (where the Boxster is now). Yes, and the car is pretty much a done deal - as soon as the present owner's new car arrives...............so I gotta be patient (not one of my strong suits!). Thanks again! AK
  4. Hi, I will be buying a 99 C2 Cab in the next few months. The tech specs on the C2 say that the car is 1765 mm (69.5") wide. Can anyone tell me what the width of the car is including the mirrors. (Trying to see if it'll fit in my garage!) Also - do the mirrors fold back? Thanks,
  5. I'm looking at buying a 1999 C2 Cab (and trading the Box). Does anyone know where I can get a complete listing of the specs for the vehicle for that year and an outline of those items which came standard (as opposed to options). Thanks, AK
  6. I'll take a closer look and let you know. AK
  7. Just an update - the silicone has worked flawlessly so far (rain or shine). The rubber has not folded over once since the silicone was applied a week ago. AK
  8. Thanks. Bottom line is I'll probably have to replace the rubber strip - but the silicone seems to be working fine for now. Today it's raining - so I'll see how it holds up. Anyone know what the approx cost is to replace that rubber strip on the window? AK
  9. Just a note - I purchased a tube of pure silicone and applied it to the moulding a few days ago. So far it's worked perfectly. I'll update in a week or so to see if it holds. The only caveat is the weather - it is cooler now up here in Toronto and this may have something to do with it - but the fact is that this is the only solution that has worked (even moderately) so far.
  10. I'll be very interested to see if you come up with a solution - good luck - and please post it if you do! AK
  11. I have exactly the same problem - and no solution yet! So far I've tried spraying Gummi (dd nothing) and rubbing "Black" from Meguires into it (did nothing). Still waiting............. Check out my earlier post - http://www.renntech.org/forums/index.php?s...amp;#entry51305 Good luck! AK
  12. Thanks Chris - I tried the spray version a few months ago - but it did not seem to have any noticeable effect. I'll give the "Black" stuff a try (bought it last night) and if that doesn't work, I'll give the Gummi Pflege another shot at it. The gel version of Gummi is no longer available at dealers in Toronto. I'll see if I can get it online. Thanks for the advice. AK
  13. That's great - thanks! I'll give it a try. AK
  14. Thanks TP - but it's the hard rubber part that's catching and folding into the window. If it would help I could upload a picture. Thanks, AK
  15. Good Day All! When my Driver's side window is wet and I lower the window - the moulding / weather strip on the outside of the window catches and folds in towards the window as it is lowering. This causes the motor to have to fight harder to lower the window and I'm concerned that sooner or later it will burn out. Does anyone have any suggestions for repair / replacement / conditioning of the strip? Many Thanks, AK
