Are the 1999-2001 996 Carrera and 986 Boxter interiors interchangeable? If so, to what extent?
What does the Porsche factory do to the USA production cars to make them different than the rest-of-the-world cars? Asked differently, what would a German need to change on a USA 996 exported back to Germany? For example, I have heard that the struts and springs are taller on the USA models to meet USA bumper height requirements, which is why the Euro 996's are lower. Also, I am aware that Euro 996's sold into the USA market have a lesser value than its USA counterpart, making them suitable primarily as track cars rather than USA street-legal cars, but I don't know exactly what the issue is there. Can you shed some light on this subject? Thanks in advance.
My body shop just installed Aerokit Cup (p/n 000.044.801.02) on my 996 Carrera today. Two issues: 1.) The "spoiler up" warning light on my instrument cluster would not turn off (though the Aerokit Cup spoiler doesn't raise) 2.) The two engine intake "ports" on the rear spoiler are just holes; it appears that some sort of plastic grill set should be fitted there, as it looks unfinished. But the body shop insists that no grills were supplied by Porsche with this kit. In TSB "Installing Cup Aerokit" 911(996) 3/00, I do not see these spoiler grills listed under the bill of materials (see attached). However, I can't imagine that these raw, unfinished "holes" are part of the finished product. Am I missing something here? Any help would be much appreciated. The car looks super besides the two above issues! _215_Carrera_Installing_Cup_Aerokit.pdf
Google or Youtube.com can be your friend. :) P.S. :welcome: Wardhog, Yes, I'm aware of the video clips on these, but I was hoping someone had original sound files from the Porsche website or elsewhere that I can use in some visual presentations I have to give. I know, for example, that the PCNA website now features downloadable sound files for the 997 GT3RS...
