  1. "Normal" turbo wheels do not have spacers, the only ones I know of that have spacers from the factory and that can be left out for the narrow body are the Sport Techno wheels. -Scott
  2. Hi Paul, I've been looking into this a little recently. Brey-Krause makes several different models. I don't have experience with any of them, just heard about them on the boards and reading the website. I think you need to add an additional bar beneath the front seat mounting rails for the anti-submarine belts, but I don't think that would interfere with day-to-day operation of your seats. http://www.bkauto.com/porsche/harnessmount.php -Scott
  3. Okay, that sounds better. Good luck with the car, I've had mine for just over 2 years and it's been great. -Scott
  4. Hold on a mintue, I am confused. Is 82 the original sticker or asking price? I assumed that was sticker and selling prices was much lower. If asking price is 82, skip it and shop around. -Scott
  5. Thanks for posting here Brett. I hope we can get a good group together. I hope most of the people from the first DIY day will come too. -Scott
  6. Tough call. I'd bet those miles were not "easy" miles, but probably not to the point of abuse, since most of the miles probably had a salesman along for the ride. Have you checked to see if any warranty work was done? Try contacting the old dealer and ask if any service records exist. The C4S is a wonderful car, but if you'll be driving around with a bunch of doubt in the back of your mind, then I don't think you'd be able to fully enjoy it. If you can put those thoughts away and just think that anything that goes wrong will be covered by warranty and fully enjoy it, then I'd say go for it. Are you comfortable with the price? My local dealer had a remaining 2004 C4S that was over $12k off sticker. I'm not sure of the mileage, but it was advertised as "new". Good luck with your decision, Scott
  7. The first San Diego work on cars day was a lot of fun and I learned quite a few new things. Thanks to Dieter (dieterro2) for hosting us at his house. Also attending were Dave (dbelleperc), Paul (drpaulmarsh) and joining us from all the way in OC was Jim (Coaster). Paul has some new pads and rotors for his C2 and we made a trip to Costco at the end so Jim could pick-up a floor-jack that he couldn't find at his local Costco. We had planned to do my brakes as well, but the brown Santa (aka UPS man) didn't show up with my pads. And of course, thanks to Renntech for the DIY instructions. I'm looking forward to the next one. For that one, we should post over on the Boxster board as well. -Scott
  8. My local dealer has it on sale for $1319.99. That's the lowest I've seen http://0038637.netsolhost.com/pcsd/parts.htm Click the link at the far left that says "Looking for a bargain? We've got it!" and you'll get a pdf with their sale prices. I think the one you want is 000 044 200 21. -Scott
  9. Personally, I'm fine with the stock pedals. IMO, a solid rubber pedal is better than the rubber dots. They look cool, but when do you actually see them? There was a thread over at 6speedonline about a group buy from Gert and/or Ruf. I don't remember whether they picked Ruf or Gert's, but search and you can probably find the thread. -Scott *EDIT* Here's the thread http://www.6speedonline.com/forums/showthr...&threadid=24370
  10. Congratulations. Sunset Imports has parts at cost +15% (see link at top of window). Carnewal is great, but unfortunately the exchange is not too favorable right now. If you still have the CD holder, I'd recommend you replace it with another "shelf", available from your local dealer or from ebay (from a Porsche dealer). IMO, the CD holder is not a very efficient use of that space. http://cgi.ebay.com/ebaymotors/ws/eBayISAP...7970036249&rd=1 The aluminum shifter is a good choice, I did that and the handbrake. I got mine from Suncoast Porsche. http://e-partssales.com/Merchant2/merchant..._Code=POTE996IN If your mats are worn, you can get these Lloyd mats with a C4S logo. Lloyd is licensed to use Porsche logos/script and I hear they are good mats. My mats are starting to wear a bit and I'm probably going to get these. http://cgi.ebay.com/ebaymotors/ws/eBayISAP...&category=33697 Enjoy. -Scott
  11. So my local dealer is having a sale right now on parts and on the sale sheet, there is an item listed as 000 044 500 38 LOWERING KIT C4S 20MM ($1649) I found this part number in the ROW Tequipment catalog and it is listed as 000 044 500 38 retrofit kit, lowering 20MM consisting: 996 333 980 15 spring strut (qty 2) 996 343 980 31 spring strut (qty 1) 996 343 980 32 spring strut (qty 1) 996 375 049 90 engine mounting (qty 2) So my questions are: 1. Is this the X73? In the ROW 996 PET, it shows individual p/n for springs and shocks, so I can't tell. 2. Why are there three p/n for the spring/strut? Are the two rear the same and different fronts or vice versa? thanks, Scott
  12. Cool! Please try to get before and after measurements as well as pictures. -Scott
  13. Is this it? http://www.performanceproducts.com/Product...&producttype=20 -Scott
  14. If we assume the numbers above are correct, then yes, it does lower it more than an inch. It will be -40mm front and -30mm rear, which is 1.57" front and 1.18" rear. I believe all of these measurements are +/-10mm (+/-0.4"), so it could be a bit less, or a bit more. I saw one post on Rennlist from a guy that was selling his X73 because it was too stiff for him. He made a comment about "too stiff for my old bones", so I'm not sure if it would be too stiff for me. You might want to try asking around here and other forums to see if you can get a ride in a car with X73 from a local owner. -Scott
