  1. My first no front plate ticket for the Cayenne finally happened over the weekend. It happened in San Francisco Richmand district. I parked with a paid meter and I got a no plate ticket. I have to put the front plate back on for a $10.00 fix ticket instead of $100.00 without fix. Beside using double side tape or valco, does anyone know a way to mount the plate without drilling holes to the bumper? There maybe bracket or someway that could mount the license plate that others have tried. Thanks.

  2. I have ROW 030 installed in my 2002 C4 Cab last year. This is the before and after:

    Ride Height - Stock

    Front 26.875” (26 7/8”)

    Rear 26.375” (26 3/8”)

    Ride Height - ROW 030

    Initial

    Front 26.50” (26 1/2”)

    Rear 26.25” (26 1/4”)

    after 100 miles & alignment

    Front 26.25” (26 1/4”)

    Rear 26.00” (26”)

    Now - little over a year

    Front 26.00” (26”)

    Rear 25.875” (25 7/8”)

  3. My problem is the garage where it will be stored has no power. Therefore I have to remove the battery.

    Once out, is there a way to close the hood (boot) once the battery is out and then reopen it via the attachments in the fuse box area come spring? :unsure: :help: Seeing there is not a battery for continuity for the connection, I assume it cannot be opened once closed and the fuse box emergency attachemenst are used.

    My guess is I have to keep the hood cracked when I cover it for the winter.

    Regards,

    There is a emergency release near the front passenge size inner wheel well for the 996. See if the same thing for the 997?

  4. I storage my RX-7 & Impala in the last 10 years by using only the battery maintainers and inflate tires to 55psi. Never had any problem. I rolled the cars back & forward few feet every 3 months.

    The gas tanks of both cars were low during storage. I will have to start to use gas stabilizer next time when I take it out of storage. Once a year, the engine starts no problem but the car feel like lost power. I am sure it is the old gas.

  5. This is not for my 996 but this is a tech question may be someone can help me.

    I have a set of wheels from a different car that fit on my RX-7 except the centerbore is a little too small and needs to be enlarged. I called local automotive/machine shops and they don't seem to have equipment large enough to fit a wheel on it. Has anyone had this done and what type of shop did it? Thanks.

  6. I have the same car as yours. I upgraded my suspension to ROW M030 few months ago, the shop took a little more than a day to finish the work. This was an independent shop and not a Porsche dealer. The dealer might take less time.

    I know the guy at the shop so he gave me a killing deal. I know other people paid from $800.00 to $1500.00 labor depend on shop or Porsche dealer. I got quote from local dealer for around $1300.00 labor.

  7. Hi all,

    After upgraded red calipers & and ROW M030, I have all these parts left in my garage. I know I can put the OEM SILVER (C4) calipers on ebay to get some money but no ideal how much. Do people buy old OEM suspension?

    Question is, should I sell all these parts? I don't think I will put them back into my car, or it's not worth it.

    I want to ask people before I put on the ebay or the for sale section, thanks.
