  1. Still learning the ropes of this...did a lot of reading already but here goes... I have a 2003 C2 NB (996.2) It has 18" 5 spoke rims (Carrera II's)...18x10 rear (65) and 18x8 front (50) I noticed that the 18" 5 spoke rims from the 997 (carrera III's) are slightly different looking. I"m trying to match up a set for my NB 996. I've found a set of 997 from a NB: 18x10 offset 58 18x8 offset 57 will these fit headache free and look normal on my NB 996? My understanding is that the 65mm in the rear vs 58 mm means the rim will be going into the car an extra 7mm with my stock....so my 58mm offset will be no issues? if my understand is correct the the fronts which are currently 50mm will going to 57mm which means the rim will be going into the middle of teh car (towards the suspension an extra 7mm)....which means I need a 5 to 7mm spacer?
  2. thanks! How do I access number 2? opening the door? or remove front fender liner? 3 and 5...I have removed the passenger side cover....noticed the cabin filter was in there...i'll have to dig around more...or look for somebody that has actual photos
  3. Didn't see an appropriate section for this so this is the next best place :) First time Porsche owner. I picked up a 2003 911 C2 It is a midnight blue, with apparently a very rare interior...it has an orange/caramel interior with red stitching and a black suede headliner....(not sure if the headliner was done after or it is from factory). I've been told, people were able to customize many things and porsche did them for the buyer. It has 150ish km on the car, and at 100km the engine was changed by porsche...the notes show massive oil leak, and a cylinder was scored badly. carfax shows accident along the driver side back in 2004 and a hail damage claim roughly 7 years ago The clutch was new (sachs) at 10k ago, brake fluid was done 10k ago as well. I just paid for new plugs, new belt, cabin/air filter and oil change along with a borescope of the clyinders....mechanic said they are in good condition. Just getting used to the car, already researched some common issues which I need to decipher through....things on my to do list: a) figure out the keys, one works fine, and one has a flashing red light when I press the button (means to me that the battery is good), but it isn't doing anything with the car. b) I was told I can unlock the car with the key, even though it was previously alarmed, but when I do that and sit inside...the alarm sirens c) need to relocate/find the emergency frunk/engine release d) noticed under the rear passenger seat was wet along with the carpet under the seat...read about the drain need the wheel well, need to check both at the rear, but I can't visualize the ones at the front e) the car has 18" 5 spoke wheels with winters: F: 235/40/18 R: 275/35/18 ..I think my rear rim is 10" wide...manual says (for summer tires) F: 225/40/18 and R: 285/30/18 f) I probably won't be driving this car in the winter too often, was told to buy a battery tricker charger (or battery tender - not sure if they are 2 diff things)...but when looking them up, I see diff ratings...which one would suit my car? Also somebody said do not buy a cigarette lighter product because then I need to open my window g) stock deck is replaced with an old JVC (bluetooth)...but I noticed the frunk has a connector dangling and there is no disc changer...I assume the plug was for that h) learn to remove the front bumper to learn the radiator clean out Last for now, I found this link with my VIN: WP0AA29983S622157 | 2003 Porsche 911 Carrera Coupe | VIN Analytics VINANALYTICS.COM Build sheet for WP0AA29983S622157 - 2003 911 Carrera Coupe
