  1. cease, I did the Flash 2 Pass installation as well. With the install of the garage opener button and under the hood install of the transmitter it probably took me a total of 45 minutes. Time very well spent, and my kudos to those who developed the unit. Just two crimp connectors onto existing wires, no soldering, just wire tied it to a support behind the battery and voila, no more finding the garage door opener on the floor or beside the seat. I get about 100 feet of transmitting for door to open but YMMV. Joe
  2. Phillipj, Could you PM those to me as well??? or email jhale@neo.rr.com joe
  3. toolpants, Thanks for the prompt reply. Here's a good example, the problem is pretty evident. I could live with it as is for now but would like to resolve if not too envolved. :renntech: my odometer Joe
  4. My digital odometer window on my MY01 996 C2 has been experiencing a weird look to it. I really can't say how long it's been going on but to the left of the total mileage there are some weird 'marks' in the same orange color that the numerals are 'made of'. Any ideas? I will try to get some photos uploaded tomorrow and it will explain it better than I can describe in words. The aforementioned markings are non-descript. Just looks like some sort of garbage that the computer may be passing on to the odometer. :o :o :o Joe[/img]
  5. I just paid $2161 for a very outstanding job at painting and fitting the complete factory Aerokit on my 2001 996. It included the two rocker panels, the front bumper, the rear deck lid and putting in it the complete hardware (fans, wiring, etc.) from the older lid on this one and, lastly but not least, the GT fins at the bottom of the rear bumper. Not only that, this company also painted my black rubber bumperettes and, in the interior of the car, also painted the instrument surround, rear center console (the big one that holds the shifter and parking brake) and the "horseshoe" area, which is the part where the radio, A/C vents etc. are located. All of these parts were painted Speed Yellow, which is a standard color and may be cheaper than the color you might want. Therefore, if you are using a standard color, I think $2900 for just the Aerokit is a bit high. Otherwise, find out how much more is the metallic paint, if this is what you'll be using, and compare this to the price I told you to make a decision. I hope this helped a little bit. Good luck and let us know how it turns out. :) Pictures....... we would like to see some pictures..... Where in the country are you located? I have a '01 996 in speed yellow as well. :D :D :D Joe
  6. I found a PIWIS for sale on the internet. Would this work here in the US or what would I need to make it workable? Do I need to connect a laptop to this? The following is from the company offering it for sale: piwis Joe
  7. Hey guys, I have the button on the bottom side of the MAF sensor as shown in the picture. Is there some sort of trick to get it off? Just press the botton and remove? Press upward (toward trunk lid) or Press downward (toward air cleaner)? I haven't been able to get it to budge. Perhaps some sort of small explosive? :huh: Joe
  8. Loren, Saw the 124 in an eBay ad and it was listed for the 996TT, is it the correct MAF for a MY01 996 C2 as well? Joe
  9. I purchased a 2001 996 coupe off eBay a couple of years ago. I live in Akron, OH and flew into NYC and met Peter Kern to examine the car and sign the papers. It had 34K miles on it and I drove it home that day. He's one of the owners of Highline Imports who are from NJ. The experience was a good one except for picking it up in midtown Manhattan and trying to get the hell out of the city on a Friday afternoon..... nearly 2 1/2 hours to traverse 8 miles with a stick wasn't any fun thanks mainly to the crazy cabbies who don't care what kind of car they nose in front of. I sure didn't want fender bender there to start out my new ownership. The car was in very good shape, well maintained, and the paperwork went smooth. I purchased an extended warranty from AutoSource from him as well. You might give him a call and ask if he has any leads on a tiptronic 996. For you that should be a no--brainer already living in NJ. From their website profile a cut and paste: Highline Imports is a referral-based business specializing in the acquisition and resale of late model high-line cars at substantial savings. Although our focus is primarily on 2001 and newer German and Asian vehicles, we serve our customer base with any desired make and model. We even have ready access to like new 2005 and 2006 models. We only deal with high quality inventory. Our cars are not salvage titles, flood damaged, recovered theft, or manufacturer buy-backs unless they are disclosed as such in the description. We do our best to photo document or include in text shortfalls that we notice, and have never had a buyer surprised by undisclosed issues upon delivery. Highline will save you thousands of dollars due to extremely low operating costs, and our willingness to pass these savings on to you. In addition to our top quality on-hand inventory, Highline offers buyers a personalized Buying Service. This unique service allows the retail buyer direct access to literally tens of thousands of cars offered only to licensed automobile dealers each week. You will find that Peter and his staff are car enthusiasts committed to serving car enthusiasts, and are in this business for the sheer enjoyment of it. Highline was conceived by life-long automobile enthusiasts involved in various aspects of motor sports activities ranging from club road racing and driver education events, road rallies, auto shows, to the modification and resale of fine automobiles. Highline's warehouse is conveniently located at Perryville Centre, 78 Route 173, Hampton, New Jersey 08827, (one minute from Exit 12 off Interstate 78). Out-of town clients can fly into Newark Airport, Allentown, Pennsylvania, or one of several other major airports. Our hours are by appointment only, so please give us a call at 908-391-3471 to set a time for a no obligation look at some of the area's finest pre-owned inventory I would do it again, the price was right and so was the car. :D Joe Hale Akron, OH
  10. Hey guys, just started getting a CEL warning. What's the best code scanner for the buck? Hate to take it to the dealer if I don't have to, their hourly charges for something so simple are ludicrous. If it is something relatively simple I'd rather do it myself. Thanks in advance. Either PM me here or email me at jhale5@neo.rr.com :notworthy:
  11. The move Risky Business comes to mind..... better to have the neighbors pissed off than the car practicing its' water treading skills...... LOL :drive:
  12. Has anyone tried painting a coating of plasti-dip or some similar insulator on the area normally occupied by the plastic pad? Seems like that might work.... just a thought. Joe
  13. What does the 996.606.124.00 work on?
  14. What is the part # for the MAF sensor for my '01 996 C2? joe :notworthy:
