  1. Really? My last two didn't :unsure: Any ideas where I can get one? Perhaps the UK market was different :unsure: Philip
  2. Sorry - just had to post this picture of Pelican B) Philip
  3. I just caught up with the thread on Pelican - now I understand what it was all about :clapping: I thought April Fools only worked in April :rolleyes: Philip ps: there's at least three on eBay at the moment - but the guy in Nigeria selling them may want to wire you some money first.... :jump:
  4. Real cheap - you'd get one for about £800,000 to £1.2m :unsure: Philip
  5. The Porsche Club GB normally stay at the Adler - small town, few minutes from the factory - not an exclusive hotel but very friendly and comfortable - and an awesome bar in the cellar :beer: http://www.hoteladler.ws/newdesign/ HTH Philip
  6. Basically, yes - the only thing I did was to 'completely' remove the diode (the 'red' bit) so there was no risk of anything shorting accross the remaining legs of the diode - you could either tape it up - or take a bit of time and care and remove the back leg so there's nothing left of the diode. Yes - stick your head under the driver's side dash - nothing to remove as the relays should be exposed. It's a really easy - and VERY worthwhile trick - I still thank the guy who came up with it everytime I start the car, drive through a tunnel, past a high wall, overtake in second gear.....
  7. Richard - many thanks for that info - I've relayed it to a, now, very relieved friend :notworthy: Philip
  8. A friend took his '04 996 in for some minor work to an independant - and while there asked if they could check the warranty breaking over-runs recorded. When the DME module was interrogated on the Bosch, it came up saying the DME was country code C10? Should be C16 for the UK (chassis sticker, service book sticker and chassis print from Porsche confirm this). Also, that the mileage recorded in the DME was 22,036kms (about 13,100miles) - however the instrument cluster shows 7,800miles - and when queried, the instrument cluster confirmed 7,800 miles. Any ideas why the DME and instrument c
  9. Ok - I got hold of a contact at the Porsche Centre involved and they confirmed that they did indeed fit the PSE to my GT3 - aparently they did two systems for GT3 owners in 2004 and the system will fit but required minor changes to the brackets (didn't get any more detail than that). Phew - so it's legitimate! So, GT3 owners looking for an exhaust system that won't invalidate Porsche warranty - PSE is possible :thumbup: Philip
  10. I took my GT3 to the local MOT station (annual vehicle inspection after three years old) and looked all around the exhaust while she was on the ramp - couldn't see any part numbers as I guess they're on the side that faces into the rear PU. I know the system was fitted by Porsche GB themselves - and they would never fit a non-Porsche part to a car within warranty period. I'll try calling Porsche UK and see what they say - might be able to get a copy of the original supply invoice to the previous owner although last time I tried they went on about 'data protection' etc etc. :censored: Ph
  11. Are you sure that it is a Porsche part? not a third party? Can you give us part number(s)? Well, it was fitted by Porsche UK (by a previous owner) :unsure: Where would I find the part number and I'll go digging :) Beginning to worry now as if Loren don't know it - it probably doesn't exist :eek: Philip
  12. Um - I'm REALLY loathe to contradict Loren - but yes, it can be fitted - my '04 GT3 has PSE fitted by Porsche GB - it has the relay mod and stays on the whole time :-) Well worth the money - in my opinion - as you get the noise and keep your warranty HTH Philip
  13. Hi again - sorry - just noticed you quoted in £'s so you must be a fellow Brit :thumbup: Becker's European contact details are: Customer Service Department Phone: +49 7248 71-1777 Fax: +49 7248 71-1811 E-mail: service@becker.de Try dropping them an email - they should be able to provide the same service (or better!) as the US. HTH Philip
  14. I'm not very technical - but I'll give it a go :) The 2003 MOST equipped cars have a connection from the DME to the head unit and the head unit (CDR23) reads the code from the DME on turning the ignition on. For some reason, there's been a problem with your car and headunit. If you're based in the US Becker have a service to recode the CDR23 - the URL is: http://www.beckerautosound.com/Porsche/03_...cdr23_6627.html Click on the 'Repair' link. HTH Philip
  15. Sorry - I've only driven her about 20 miles since doing the job - the weather over here is not good enough to venture too far in a car with no traction control :eek: However, I think I noticed more downforce on the rear end above 40mph ish - front felt a little lighter - which I suppose is kind of logical :unsure: I'll be out in her some more at the end of the week when the weather is due to improve and I'll let you know. Philip
