  1. weight is pretty close to stock Front - 22 lbs per wheel Rear - 24 lbs per wheel I do not notice a difference between the Turbo stock 19s and the HRE 20s. In fact, I was looking for a difference in feel beacuse of my past experience on my 06 997S. On my 06, I noticed a huge difference in feel in the stock 19s Carrera Classic Wheels and my upgraded Avus 20s.
  2. Ok, I selected the winter tire option and it learned with about 10 miles of driving. I guess the summer option was preprogrammed for the factory wheels.
  3. Thanks for the quick reply. Let me clarify a bit. I actually did the install myself with new sensors and I did get the "learning" message before I did another reset (maybe I did not wait long enough). I guess the next question is (for anyone), is how do I manually put the system into "learn mode" so I can input the new wheel values, or is this something I can't do without going to the dealer.
  4. I switched out my 19" Porsche turbo wheels for 20" HRE with new sensors on my 09 Turbo. I am getting a "TPC inactive" (tire pressure control) error message, even after puting about 50 mile on since the switch. The TPC is reading the psi of all four wheels correctly. Is there any way to fix this message so it acurately reads the new wheels and shows no errors? Is there a way to manually enter the parameters for the new wheels? Is there a way to disable the TPC message?
  5. The question is not the volume of different songs on an individual input ie ipod, aux, tuner. The question /comment /recommendation is there no adjustment for the individual inputs so when one is listening to the ipod and one selects tuner one is not blown away by the different volume levels of those different inputs. Also, once agin I ask, is there a way to tap into the auto mute in the PCM 3.0 (like we could in the PCM 2.1). I would love my radio to mute when my radar detector goes off like it did in my previous 2006 911
  6. On my new 2009 Turbo, I have noticed that the Aux in volume on the PCM3 is much lower that the tuner volume or the ipod volume. This happens no matter what device I plug into the Aux. Is this standard (feature) or is it a problem that I am only having. Also, is there a way on the PCM3 to connect and auto mute via a cable with my built in Escort 9500ci radar dector.
  7. Thanks for all the help. I am going to order it from PCNA
  8. Anyone know how to find the exact build date?
  9. Results for my error and the fix: Manual Valve Open on Pump for top. Both flap motors worn. Drives cracked. Top out of calibration Ran calibration but top wont open completely due to side flaps not accuating fast enough...Replaced both side flap motors, calibrated and cleared fault memory Top operates properly at this time
  10. I just brought mine in for the exact same error. I had to manually lower and lock the top. They have not let me know what the cause was but it should be ready for pickup tomorrow. I will post when I have an answer. I would remove the SmartTOP if you want to fix it under warranty. You will need to manually lower and raise and lock the top (directions in manual) and remove the SmartTOP.
  11. Ive been trying to lift the top manually via the owners manual instructions and I can not get it to budge more than 6 inches up. I tried it with one person on each side as well as form behind the fronts seats as stated. It seems to be stuck on the hydraulic lifts. Any recommendations ?
  12. Thanks, but that wasnt it. The lid was the first thing I checked. I guess the next question is... If it is trully a control error, the how can I manually get into the back to check the control unit with the top in the down position?
  13. After charging the dead battery on my 2006 997 cab with the top fully down, I received a failure convertible top control error. I now can't put up the top or put the rear windows up. I checked all the fuses and they are all ok Any sugestions?
