  1. Thanks for putting me at ease about my situation.... and saving me alot of $! Did manage to take it out again for a last spin this year. Happy New Year!
  2. Thanks for that.. I didn't really think about any possibility of damage to the car but don't think I will be doing this option then! I heard that to avoid flatspotting the tires, the car should be driven every 2-3 weeks and I can sometimes go months without driving it unfortunately. I bought race ramps flatstoppers but didn't like driving up onto them... I guess I'll keep using them but push the car on them next time.
  3. Do you think it is ok to use to keep a car lifted for extended periods of time (using the locking bar of course)?
  4. Just purchased a 2002 GT2... do you know if these jackstands would fit this car? clearance might be the second biggest problem. Thanks, Jorge
  5. Where in the EU are you? I don't have the answer to your question but I had a 2005 997S for a few years when I lived in Germany... sold the car there locally and bought a 2006 997S Cab (with 8k miles) when I moved back to the states and pocketed about $10k from the exchange (not sure how the market is these days but it is very likely you can buy the same car in the US and save lots of money and avoid all the charges for shipping and making it compliant) Good Luck!
  6. Just replaced the battery in my '06 997S Cab with the Interstate MTP-H7 you guys mentioned.... exact fit and couldn't be happier. Thanks to you all !
  7. I had the same problem with a previous 2005 997S. I took it to the dealer countless times to try to fix but to no avail. Eventually I got so tired of it that I sold it and bought another one.
  8. i hit 305kph on the autobahn last year in a 997 turbo... still had a bit left in it. there was no chance to get the picture like you did though :-)
  9. Hi, I was wondering if anyone had a solution to using the phone in the 997 without having to take out my sim card from my mobile every time. Vodafone tells me they do not make copies of sim cards. Thanks! Jorge
  10. Went for a drive with a Porsche mechanic over the weekend but car wasn't making any noise. Seems to be only in the morning I'm guessing when there is no lubrication on that part. Goes away after a few minutes of driving. I'll probably be going back again soon to drop off the car since he told me not much he could do without hearing/feeling the knock for himself. Will keep you updated on any progress solving this problem. Jorge
  11. I have a Oct 2005 manual 997S which has been absolutely great so far. Recently though the car has made some strange knocking sounds coming from my front wheels when the car is cold. This happens only when turning the wheel completely one way or the other. I can feel a knock on the steering wheel but have not been able to see what is causing this. It seems to go away completely after running for a few minutes. Any thoughts on what this could be? Many thanks, Jorge
