Doesn't sound like anything so grim as things listed above (not to say it's NOT either) BUUUUT this is my guess as well... I've experienced what you're describing as directly related to fillup... I think in my case, it was more impurities/dirt from a station whose tanks had recently been filled by a tanker. I now ask the clerk hen the last tanker fill was... they stir up dirt that settles to the bottom of the tanks, and it can get in YOUR tank if you fill up to soon after a visit from the tanker to the station. Dirty gas.
well I would just like the center grill, but if I have to get the whole bumper I'm okay with that. My front bumper has seen better days, the last owner was a firm believer in "park by feel" and it has some dents and scratches in it. I just cant find a part number for that style bumper, suncoast and pelican only show my two grill style. What is the cut off point for which bumpers are interchangeable, I have an 01 US model, and would like something more aggressive looking. Thanks Hey man, It's Bryan (aka damntall, aka The Voxster)... Not sure if you got this resolved with me back in Oct, but I just ran across this thread by accident. You get your questions answered about my front bumper? Here's what the car looks like with skirts on now: The whole thread at PPBB is at: http://www.ppbb.com/boards/ppbbphp/showfla...part=1&vc=1 If you need more details on who makes it and where to get it, drop me an email at email@example.com.
The Voxster replied to sfarris's topic in 996 Series (Carrera, Carrera 4, Carrera 4S, Targa)Umm... they go on the sides. HAHA *bad joke* Not a dumb question at all, however... and I know the feeling. Funny to see this question now. I dropped off my car this morning to have some TA Sport skirts installed this week... should be painted and installed near Thursday. Porsche has a side skirt mounting harware kit that works great, but it's (not surprisingly) expensive from a dealer at around $120, and usually must be ordered. I can get you a part # if you need it. Mounting is basically (depending on the skirts) 6 screws and some spring clips that attach to the bottom rail of the frame located just under the rocker panel on either side of the car. My car is an '03 Boxster S that has rear mudflaps that must be removed to even test-fit the rockers... not sure if earlier/other models have them as well. Many people use 3M automotive body tape or (my last choice) epoxy glue to mount them to the sides of the car, and in the case of the TA Sport skirts, it's appropriate since the rear of each skirt wraps up the rear quarter panel behind the doors to follow the doorline. With poly skirts (like the Porsche Aerokit I and II) they also supply a thin, double-sided foam seal that runs the length of the contact points against the car to keep small pebbles, water, dirt, and corrosion out from behind the covered area.
