  1. One more vote for Darin if you go with the mod....he is a great guy, and does excellent work. I took a 5 hour (one way) road trip up to have him do the work, and it was well worth my time.
  2. This happened to me too. I used the standard VW harness adaptor when installing my Kenwood double DIN. There were problems with the constant, turns out those VW Metra adaptors have the constant and ignition power wires switched.....I think it is the standard case, so heads up to anyone putting a deck in.
  3. THE ISSUE IS FINALLY SOLVED!!! I am so happy. After trying everyone from forum experts, to dealers, to Porsche corporate, I finally found someone that could confirm the color changes on the RoW M030 tolerance code. A very helpful expert informed me that in 2002, they changed the tolerance group colors to Blue (for the old green) and Orange (for the old white). My understanding is that the model ID color codes stayed the same. I can finally put this thing to rest! Thanks for all the thoughts and inputs guys!
  4. Thanks for that info. I re-searched (umpteenth time on this topic) and found mention of sway bar diameter for the kit in an old post of Lorens...missed it the other times. The rear sway is 19.6mm, and the front is 23.6mm. I will try to get the P/N for the C2 when I order and post them for future reference.
  5. PS. My understanding is the the X74, and US M030 kit use the same sway bars as the RoW M030...so if anyone has a diameter measurement on the rear sway for any of those packages, it would help me out a lot. Thanks again!
  6. More work going on....so another part number request. I have the shocks/springs for my RoW M030 kit, ordering the sways and the bushings for the sway linkage that will allow the M030 sway to fit in existing link. Sunset couldn't confirm correct P/N for the rear as there were apparently a few options. 1) Does anyone have the correct part number for rear sway bar bushing that can accomodate RoW 030 sway bar? 2) Does anyone know the diameter of the M030 rear sway? Sunset can verify correct part number if I had the rear sway bar diameter. Thanks again!
  7. I am trying to find the part number of the large (3" diam. or so) grommet/rubber disk that covers the hole that comes through the front firewall (not sure if that is correct term since engine is in back) just out from behind the battery on the driver side on an 02 996 C2. I believe this is the spot most folks run wires to/from the front compartment.
  8. Does anyone have the part numbers for the front and rear 2002 Carrera 5 spoke lightweight OEM wheels? Thanks!
  9. Thanks for the info Peter....I will check into that. I still haven't found anyone that knows what the orange tolerance code means....Gert hasn't gotten back to me with the exact details on where the orange falls into place when comparing to the green and white tolerance codes. When I get time later this week I am going to go over everything and see what kinds of measurements I can take on the various components to verify id. It just sits a little funny with me when everyone agrees that green/white means 996 C2 cab, but nobody has an explanation as to what in the heck an orange tolerance code means......so I guess I do still have some level of concern on these.
  10. Hi guys, Found a set of used RoW M030 shocks/struts to install on my 2002 C2 996 manual. The previous owner had these sold to him by Carnewal for the same exact car. Looking over the famous PCA suspension comparison article, I see that my car should have a green+white dot in one part of the spring, and a green or white dot alone at the other end to indicate "tolerance group". These springs have the green+white indicating they are for my car, but the top dot is orange (or maybe brown). I have never seen reference to the orange (brown) tolerance group. I have done a bunch of research and have found no mention of this code. Can anyone identify what that odd colored dot in the "tolerance group" location code means? I just want to make sure these are right for me before I head off and pay the $$$ for install and alignment. I have attached a photo of 1/2 the set. Anyone have any thoughts to share? Thanks!
