  1. Are you feeling the car bottom out the front strut on the rubber bumper stops? If so you are using up the available suspension travel. If those bumpers are in good condition and the speed is very low it is par for the course due to available suspension travel. Thumping noise feeding into the chassis OTOH, not so good and it would be worth a look at the suspension on a lift to see what's happening
  2. I would put the car on a alignment rack with the left side as close to the left edge as possible . Raise the rack to allow getting under it and gently push it back with the steering wheel turned left to see if anything hits. Not a lot of movement would be available in full lock steering ( car rolling off rack) but it would allow a better underneath view with car in real time ride height .
  3. After reading B3freak's post I verified that indeed it is a HIFI version. Adding the bluetooth bit still baffles me as it has no CDC option so it will involve additional bits and labor. That brings in getting a new HU which may make things easier all the way round. Crutchfield offers a interconnect harness adapter so no butchering factory harness required . As per the speakers, replacement are possibly the best idea due to the age factor of the paper cones. Looks like I've got a bit of work to do. Thanks all
  4. Greetings. My early (3/98) C2 still wears the original CDR21O. As much as I like the bare bones look as it is combined with the center console delete on this car, it could use some improvement in sound quality as well as adding a bluetoooth to allow more music + phone option . Any preferred head units recommended? I would like to stay with a single DIN type to retain the previously mentioned console delete. This may have been covered before so any links will also be appreciated .Cheers
  5. Thanks folks. As a MBZ driver I have been through that rigmarole before. Off to the dealer I go.
  6. Greetings. New forum member here. My 3/98 build date 996 C2 needs a spare key. I would like to find a Automotive Locksmith who can duplicate and reprogram the new key.So far I have struck out in Marin County and San Francisco. Would love to find a Auto Locksmith able to that. Any leads ? TIA
