    important? maybe not
  1. sorry for bumping an old thread. but this has been bothering me for a while. isn't installing 996 tire setup on a 986 really bad for handling balance? seems like this would make the 986 understeer in a serious sort of way.
  2. 19s look fine on a 987 but look pretty bad on a 986. especially if you're at stock height. lowered, it make 19s look only slightly less bad.
  3. bump for an answer. i have a 2000 986 S and the silver trim around the windshield is looking pretty ratty and pitted and kinda well just old looking. would removal of the windshield be require to replace this trim piece? it looks like the price of the part is only $50 or less so it seems like a reasonable piece to replace.
  4. Pretty sure he doesn't want more power. next time read the post.
  5. I'm also pretty sure that you really do not want to do this. From what I've read, to properly put these multi piece rims back together, you need a machine that can tighten all of the bolts at the same time and at the same torque.
  6. indeed, very nice write up. claudio and crew did my pre-purchase inspection. very thorough and they are perfectionists for sure. i'm thinking i may need to sell my 17000 mile 3.2 and come up with some cash to do this. although, the hp gains are not as dramatic going from a 3.2 to a 3.4. but still...
  7. very nice install. looks pretty convenient to have the phone up there. how's the audio quality on that setup? any interference from the iphone itself?
  8. I think people were giving you advice on the 01-02 cupholder. you have an 03, which would require removal of the horseshoe as the first step. then you'll see the 2 little locking tabs on the top left and right of the cupholder. push those in to slide the cupholder contraption out.
  9. this is the instructions for the aux input. should be the same for adding changer. basically you need to tell the cdr220 that you have the cd changes and you want it to be available in the source (S button) choice. so basically follow these instructions but look for something about the changer instead. the aux plugs into the same place as the cd changer. To select Auxiliary Input for Porsche CR220 \ CDR220: Turn radio ON Press and hold the "TP" button for about 8 seconds, until Becker 1 is displayed. Turn the Tuning Knob until AUX OFF is displayed. Press either button located directly under the Arrows on the display to change the present setting from OFF to ON. Turn radio OFF. Auxiliary Audio Input has now been activated.
  10. wireless rf http://scosche.com/scosche_ipod.aspx?Categ...p;ItemID=IPNRFC i know it comes with a budget looking steering wheel attachment. but i'm not using that.
  11. glad you solved that problem. those irwin tools look awesome. may have to buy a set just to have on hand in case.
  12. I plan on taking pics. i have all the parts i need (vents, horseshoe, brackets etc) just got the wrong cupholders. sunset estimated 2 weeks. :( overall it looks pretty painless. i've read on various forums that others have done this mod. heard estimates of less than 1 hour for the full install. from what brucem says, it looks like one needs to melt/mold the ducts in the car and slightly trim the back of the vents. will photo and document the process.
  13. The cupholders pull out away from the driver. putting the wrong model in the wrong car has the cupholder pull out towards the steering wheel. here's a picture from brucem's install as for what i would do with the cupholders? i would think that is pretty obvious. maybe put a drink or 2 in there. not everyone can make every single drive an all out track experience. wish i could.
  14. jeff from sunset got back to me with 996 552 183 00 $132. ouch. cheapest price i've found. but ouch. anyway. you think there's much demand on this board for an LHD cupholder? ebay.co.uk maybe?
