  1. Thanks, just got a quote for an AVIC Z2 at Senor Stereo, they said it will look factory
  2. :lightbulb: Did the MY99 come with the Nav option, if so where can I buy one
  3. Good point, I think for anyone trying to follow suit, It will take a huge law firm with very big cojones to go after Porsche for defective manufacturing, specillially when most or all the engines are swapped for a new or rebuilt unit by the same manufacturer. It will be hard to really find the "real" issue and pinpoint the liability to the manufacturer additionally a very good translator will be necessary. I wonder how many of the new/remanufacture engines are showing the same problem, now that would be real good info to share at least at this forum level to substantiate the failure rate of a OE poweplant and a new/rebuilt exchange.
  4. Call Otto at the collection, I just paid a litle more for a water pump, but this guy seems to be a nice guy, maybe he will accept parts from a authorized delaer, he may want a copy of the invoice.
  5. Well, Izzy maybe in Miami we all suffer from dollaritis, where the value of the dollar is half than anywhere else in the nation, I went to Vertex and they want $800.00 plus tax, Promotive wants $750.00 plus tax, and the collection $1,000 bucks, I guess I ma going to pay the 1K and enjoy the plush mats, free rental and as many expressos as I can indulge for the next day or so, while I test drive 997 turbo's, 997 S and maybe a nice red Scaglietti. Thanks for the feedback, this is truly agreat forum
  6. Went to the dealer this morning for a second opinion, again they said that a I need a new waterpump, The collection Porsche quoted me 5 hrs work plus parts, for a grand total of $1050.00 plus tax, another independant quoted me $800.00 plus tax, I am thinking going with the dealer, at least I know I have a warranty on the work if something related happens. What you guys think.
  7. This morning I drove my 99 C2 to my office and when I parked the car I notice water dripping from below, after checking closer it seems coolant is leaking from a water hose/water pump location under the car, a friend told me that I need to replace the water pump, cost & parts quoted $700.00 Does this sounds right and is the water pump replacement hard to do on a Carrera. Thanks
  8. I have the coins noise coming from the transmission area for quite sometime now, maybe about 5 months, it's that the sound you are talking about.
  9. I have the schnell and it works just fine, a litle noisy when shifting from 4th to 5th, other than that for the price is a very good product, I got mine from Vertex Auto nice people.
  10. If you want more power from a stock 996 C2, you should consider Exhaust and intake, other than that sell your car and get a turbo or GT2- GT3.
  11. I am recently having a weird clutch noise, it happens when I start to release the clutch pedal, it feels like metal on metal scratching together, it only happens when I let the pedal engage the clutch slowly, the clutch works perfect there is no slippage or any other problems. Anyone with opinions. Clutch was replaced 20,000 miles ago, car has now 66,000 miles
  12. I had S02 Pole Position, they were good, now I swithched to Bridgestone Potenza RE090, they are even better and noise is extremely low
  13. I was quoted a brand new ROW 030 with sway bars , shocks and springs for $975.00, they say I will lower the car 10mm. What do you guys think
  14. Loren, I reeceived a reply from Richard Hamilton with a PDF of setpoints to compare to my actual values on the Durametric. Thanks :renntech: :rolleyes:
  15. Seems like the ROW 030 is the best set up for street use, does the car height is affected at all, were can I buy this system other than a Porsche delaer.
  16. I Have H&R Sport springs with OEM shocks, the ride is hard and bouncy, I like to know some factual opinions in the following coilover shocks H&R Coilovers , PSS9 Bilstein, or any other system I want to change my current set up ASAP, my goal is to have a good daily drive more than a track car. Any help will be fantastic.
  17. Does anyone have a PDF of the DME settpoints for a 1999 C2. Thanks
  18. While you are there expending money, check your clutch, flywheel for damage and repace it if necessary, it will save you some more money later. Is sad that you have a RMS bad, it is common to say the least on 996 cars.
  19. To thing is they would not give me anything at all.
  20. I purchased a 99 C2 a few months ago in Houston from a dealer, The car has some records but not all of them, the car was serviced at Momentum POrsche of Houston, I called them to get copies of the services performed and they said I can not get any records due to liability issues with the dealer, is this guy B.S. me or what.
  21. That's bad man, after 69,000 miles, it should be a very rare event to have an engine go bad like that. Question how many, well that won't work, anyway, I have 65,000 miles on my car, I ask anyway, how many forum members have this kind of problem after driving the car for 60K + miles. This is not a survey just a quick check up.
  22. I am running Bridgestone tires RE050 A Pole position , the pressure I run is 32 front and 34 rear, I have a lower suspension by using HR springs, so far wear and ride is much better than higher pressures, I don't know how long they will last bt my last set of Potenza S02 were shot after 15,000 miles, so far I have driven the 050 over 8,000 miles and they look great.
