  1. I'm about to go down this road with the entire ignition assembly replacement ... that's how you end up with two different keys. In my case, it's a '99 Boxster. And, yes, I've already replaced the electrical portion and am careful to not have too many keys on the ring. Still, at 70K miles, not too bad, I guess.
  2. Just completed the same suspension install using the above directions. Great job on those, but I do have two additional comments: Separating the rear lower control arm is certainly an easy way to go, but it took the second side before I realized that slacking the parking brake cable would easily give me the necessary clearance to remove the strut intact. As a result, I have apparently stretched the first cable. It adjusted okay, but it sure looks odd in the console. I'll switch it out soon. And, on three of the four sides I had backing plate contact with the rotor. Guess I wasn't paying that much attention, but it's been a royal pain to track down what that noise was and to fix. In fact, the front still is an issue. I'm going to remove the fronts for track days, anyway, but I gather they must be cut away if you're not replacing the hub bearing. Any suggestions. The M030 kit is a little stiff in the cold (40's), but it definitely handles even better. At 60 it's much smoother. Can't wait for the first track day.
  3. Interesting question! '63 356B Cab. at 24 '76 911S Targa at 49 '99 996 at 51 '99 986 at 52
  4. A common problem ... the rotors show surface rust within minutes of water contact. I blow dry water off with a cordless leaf blower (really!) and always drive out to a 45MPH road for both engine warm-up and additional blow-drying. That does it for me. Probably just more than around the block is all it'll take.
  5. Never got an answer? I'm in the same box (ster?). I've installed the BK roll bar extension, but need another 2 1/2 - 3" to be under it. I know I'll NEVER meet the SCCA rules for there to be 2" between the top of the the roll bar and helmet. What did you do? The GT3 seats don't look like they'd improve the headroom much.
