  1. Thanks for the quick reply. So my only option is to get the amp too. I will give it a try.
  2. Will the Utopia Be 13WS speakers work with the existing Bose amplifier? The Focal website shows them as 4-ohms.
  3. Loren, are the Brake/Clutch Fluid Change and Bleeding Instructions for the 996 applicable to the 996 Turbo (with PSM) as well?

  4. Hi all, I’ve discovered I have a coolant leak on the left side of the engine. Can anyone help me identify which hose this is? Not sure at this point whether it’s the hose at fault or something else. If there is a procedure to replace this hose, that would be helpful too! Dave
  5. Hi all, I've got a slow coolant drip onto the top of the left side muffler tip and I'm having a hard time finding the source. Is there anything above there besides the expansion tank and hoses that I should be looking into?
  6. Bummer. I haven't tried them for this item, but I'll give it a shot. Thanks for the response!
  7. I'm wondering if anyone might know if part number 996 106 157 03 (or an alternative) might fit a '99 996 C2? They're less than half the price of 996 106 147 56. Thanks, Dave
  8. I'm running the Solisto adapter with my CDR-210 http://www.solisto.de and it works great! Simple plug-in installation and it charges the iPhone.
  9. I've got a '99 C2 and I'm running BRIDGESTONE POTENZA RE960AS POLE POSITION all seasons on my car in Melbourne, FL. Admittedly, its a different situation than yours, since most of my turns are 90 degrees from a stop light, with a few enjoyable back roads mixed in. I do manage to find my share of off ramps; however, and I've not been disappointed with the decrease in handling. Its certainly noticeable, but outweighed by the more comfortable ride, lower cost, decrease in noise and increase in wet-weather performance, the latter of which is all-important during the rainy season down here. To answer what you didn't ask, I would definitely not recomend all-seasons for regular use in the snow. I grew up in Boston, and with such wide tires, I would not want to go out without anything but dedicated snows that are specifically designed to bite into the snow and ice.
  10. Not all dealers ask way too much. There's a dealer in Naples, FL that specializes in finding trade-ins before they actually get traded. He offers the seller more than they would otherwise get on their trade at a dealership and sells the cars at less than you would pay to a normal dealership or private seller. I bought my 996 from them and couldn't be happier. Try Naples Motorsports in Naples, FL. They have a great internet presence, and while most of their cars are Ferraris, Lamborghinis and Maseratis, they also sell Porsches. Since the Porsche volume is lower, you may have to be patient to find what you want. The patience pays off in the end with the lower price. Dave
  11. I have a 99 996 C2. 996 355 955 04 is actually what is stamped on the hydraulic portion of my control unit. Dave
  12. I'm looking for a replacement ABS control module for part number 996 355 955 04. I've found 996 355 755 04 at Oklahoma Foreign and I'm wondering if someone may be able to confirm whether this will be compatible with my car. Thanks, Dave
  13. Update: According to my mechanic, the speed sensor and wiring check out okay. He says the electronic portion of the ABS control module is the likely culprit. I've found some used modules at Oklahoma Foreign that might work, and I'd also like to find out if you may know of any places that rebuild 996 ABS modules?
