My original battery last me about 4 years and my second one last me about 3 years. I thought about replacing the battery with the Porsche battery but this time I got the Optima Yellow top (should have gotten the blue top). I had to change out one of the wire and made a mount for the battery and so far it works great(had it like this for about 2 months).

boxer6 replied to Paul Strong's topic in 996 Series (Carrera, Carrera 4, Carrera 4S, Targa)ARG!! I got the same problem... Loren I have 1999 C2 6speed... Can you get me the part # also? Thanks
I used to have the exhaust bypass pipes from fabspeed. Lossing weight along made my car handle and perform better. However it was way too loud and I ended it up taking it out. I was wondering how loud your car is with the cat bypass pipes?
I just hope I don't have any other issue with the car...
Thanks Loren! Now, I just need to get it fix asap. BTW, I'm at Santa Clara in a business trip and weather is so much better here than Chicago and I hopefully weather will follow me back to Chicago with me next week :D
Here is a picture of windows touching.
boxer6 posted a topic in 996 Series (Carrera, Carrera 4, Carrera 4S, Targa)Very strange thing happen to me about a week ago... I washed the car on last Sunday weekend. When I woke up on Monday, my driver side window was crack in thousands of pieces. I don't know whether it had anything to do with me washing it but now I have to get it replace. I've called a porsche dealership and they told me they have never replaced the driverside windows before and they say they will get back with me with the cost later. So, do anyone know how much it will cost to replace the door window? I do have another question with the way window cracked. It looks like broken door window is touching the rear triangle and seems glass was exploded outward???
boxer6 replied to geza's topic in 996 Series (Carrera, Carrera 4, Carrera 4S, Targa)Hey neighbor! :D I also use Mobil 1 0w-40 however I've seen commercial for Mobil 1 Extended Performance and was thinking about trying it on my car.
boxer6 replied to Scouser's topic in 996 Series (Carrera, Carrera 4, Carrera 4S, Targa)When I had a problem with my key cylinder (I think that is what's called). I was still able to turn on radio, air condition, windows, sunroof even after I took out the key. Replacing the unit fixed it right away.
boxer6 replied to X911CarreraX's topic in 996 Series (Carrera, Carrera 4, Carrera 4S, Targa)Can you show me what center console you are talking about? Do you mean the armrest? I'm interested also.
boxer6 replied to boxer6's topic in 996 Series (Carrera, Carrera 4, Carrera 4S, Targa)TO SPR: Here is the thread that I started few months ago. Hope this help with your short shifter.
Sunset Imports has the lowest price I've seen so far. Their customer service is also excellent.
boxer6 replied to jcnesq's topic in 996 Series (Carrera, Carrera 4, Carrera 4S, Targa)I haven't had any problem with short shifter. It's been wonderful for about 400-500 miles so far. When I installed mine I used same location of original screw thread for the two adjustable cables. If you want, go to my other post and get the screw thread location number and try that setup.
boxer6 replied to jodyreynolds's topic in 996 Series (Carrera, Carrera 4, Carrera 4S, Targa)If I open my door the window lowers about quarter inch and when I close the door it goes all the way up. I believe it does it either engine is on or off.
