I wasn't aware the 991 C4S was in the US yet. I think you drove a 997.2
Hi guys! I'm trying to swap a 997 key fob (that I dropped) for a new one. I was able to swap the blade over without any trouble but I'm having a bugger of a time removing the transponder from either the old key or the new one. The old one appears to be glued in. Is there something I need to know?
I'm interested. PM me your contact info.
May I ask where you found this? Likely this one... http://cgi.ebay.com/...3361caa6f0#shId The man with all the answers! Thanks Loren.

gaspasser19 replied to jtraol's topic in 996 Series (Carrera, Carrera 4, Carrera 4S, Targa)I too have a C4 cab. When I purchased my car it had 17" wheels with the Michelin PS A/S on it and I promptly picked up some 18" Sport Designs with Contis. The Michelins were almost new and I hated to waste them so I use them for dry winter days. My logic being that they are at least appropriate for winter temperatures even if they don't significantly improve foul weather traction. So, I drive the 911 on a limited basis during the winter to keep from having to store it. That way I get to cycle through a few tanks of fuel and keep the battery charged. Plus, it's great to put the top down on a crisp day when it hits the 50s here in DC. I'm fortunate enough to have 3 AWD vehicles and I have snow tires for each of the other two (Audi S8 and Acura MDX) so I don't have to drive the P-car. I've been caught in an inch or two of snow with the A/S and it wasn't a disaster but I don't think I'd want to do it on purpose. I also feel a bit vulnerable in the Porsche when everybody around me starts sliding. When I wear out the A/Ss I plan to get some dedicated winter tires for it too. I guess I have bit of a snow obsession
I elected not to do this myself since I have a C4 and DON'T own a lift. However, if you are interested in having this done and live anywhere near Baltimore, MD, call GT Performance in Edgewood. I bought my ROW M030 kit from Sunset for $1065 shipped and they installed it and aligned the car for less than $700. Truly a great deal and a really great improvement over initial ride quality. My car had 60K miles so wear on the original suspension may have played a part. All in all, a good investment.
I dropped the car off at GT perf. Sat. AM. Best quote by a longshot. Shop was full of Pcars. Will post the results. Thanks!
Thanks Loren! The man with all the answers...
I recently received my new M030 suspension parts for my '03 C4 cab. from Jeff at Sunset and have been trying to find a local installer. The quotes have been significantly higher than others around the country have reported(>$1000 plus alignment). Does anyone know what Porsche quotes as the time for this R&R? Also, has anyone done this mod in the Balt./Wash. area and who did the work and at what price? Thanks in advance.
gaspasser19 replied to IFLYASA's topic in 996 Series (Carrera, Carrera 4, Carrera 4S, Targa)If you can find it, I'd go with the Tri Nitro Toluene. You get more bang for you buck! :rolleyes: Sorry, I couldn't help myself!
When your friends tell you that you bought the "Poor Man's Porsche", show them all the 996 part numbers all over the car. You are the smart one for buying a 911 for a 986 price. Congrats... Did that engine you replaced have a 996 part # too? :huh: You should brush that chip off your shoulder.
