  1. Just got an 2002 C4S with BOSE and a single DIN OEM porsche Traffic Pro 4760 navi. Would like to replace the Porsche OEM TrafficPro with a more graphical-capable aftermarket system, but I'm also wondering about the BOSE connectivity. Cant find any information in the forums on that. Anyone? For the 03 with the Bose, you're screwed. It has a proprietary connection fiberoptic system, called MOST. In order to change the head unit, you'll have to power the speakers directly from the deck or use amps. As far as I know, there's no way to integrate a new deck into the existing amp. For the 02 you can definititely connect by splicing wiring directly. Also, I think you can use a wiring harness by Metra (part no 17-1787, VW/Audi amplified harness) to use the stock plug. I can't confirm this 100%, but I will be installing my Double Din Kenwood (DVN 7100) in the next week or so. Ok, I know I dont have MOST as it's a a 2002. Flash, I assume you have BOSE installed as well, and from what I now gathered on other forums is that the BOSE amp takes highlevel input (i.e no line-level input). Still I dont really understand how the current wires are pulled, for high level the 8 speaker wires from the radio would be used ? But there is a line-out on the main unit , should not this be the one used ? Please take some pics when you do your install :)
  2. This is exactly what I want to do. Where is the BOSE amp located ? how are the speakers connected ? Currently i have a traffic pro 4670 installed, it's a 2002 car. Have not been able to figure out if it is using the internal amp (4 outputs for speakers) or some lineout for an external amp ? How many BOSE speakers are there in a 2002 C4S ? How are they normally connected ? thanks

  4. Hi All. I asked the seller of the C4S i want to get to take it for a full checkup at this 3rd party 'car testing' sites we have here in Switzerland. All results came back fine except the rims/wheel setup. The owner have fitted 19" TechArt formula GTS rims on the C4S, with 315/25 tires in the back. The protocoll states something like "the wheels are rubbing the chassis, little but enough to slowly destroy the wheels." What should I do ? I would relly like to get this car and I'm considering asking for a 2k less in price so I can afford a pair of OEM 18" to put on. Would the TechArt 19" GTS rubb less with a different wheel setup ? It's 11" back, so i guess i could put on 295's ? would they rub less ? thanks :renntech:
  5. Hi All. Thanks for all valuable input. After testdriving 2 separate 996TT this week i have decided to go with the 'poser' model (according to top gear) C4S :) The power in the TT's was simply stunning but its 'nervous' nature didnt really please me. Also within my budget I would get a 2 year older car with higher milage. Advantage: it's black! and it has way more optional equipment then any of the TTs i found. (to be honest , all the extras made a big part of the decision, this car is completely equipped) C4S Al: I saw in the registry that you are looking for a carbon mod. Will you be purchasing this 2nd hand ? Two things that I would consider trading/selling is the carbon trim and the 19" TechArt GTS wheels. Is the trim easy to replace ? preferbly i would like the 'simple' black trim. I'm picking up the car on Friday :)
  6. I'm new to the forum as I just sold the M3 and aim att picking up my 'new' 996 this week. Originally I already made plans for a black C4S from 2002 with 43 000 km. The car is in very nice shape, with full options (navi, bose, xenon, roof, memory seats etc) but with porsche factory carbon interior *which i dont like so much* and a bit oversized 11x19 black TechArt formula with 315 wide tires. Now for exactly the same amount of money I'm being offered a 2000 - 996TT, it however has 70 000 km and fitted with X50. What to do? , I have seen alot of older post comparing 996TT with 997s as the prices where more similar one year ago. But now the 996TT are soooo cheap i feel 'stupid' buying 'only' a C4S for the same price. Thing is I actually dont NEED that 475HP, i would be just as good off with 320HP. But im considering that a 996TT might be a bargain now, and I could loose less money on it for the next 2-3 years comparing with the C4S. (of course insurance , but I guess also service will be more expensive). Whats the forums take on this dilema?
