Hello fellow Porsche enthusiasts, My 2006 C2 is equipped with the Bilstein SP shocks, combined with Eibach Pro-Kit springs. I'm not too happy about it, because the nose is WAY too low, and the ride is a little too stiff for normal daily use. After some doubting of reinstalling the OEM suspension, I've noticed nothing but good stories about the Bilstein PSS9's. Supposably they last a lifetime, and they still (if adjusted as so) can be very comfortable. Is this true? My main objective is, to have that nicely lowered look (not too extreme) but still be able to normally drive around on a less than perfect road, without having to re-allign my kidneys afterworths... One other thing is, that after the lowering, it looks like the wheels (especially the front) are way to much inboard the fenders. First i thought it was a wrong allignment, but that seems not the case. Is this a known visual illusion, and do you guys recommend to install the optional 5mm wheel spacer option? Thanks!
PQR5CHE replied to PQR5CHE's topic in 997-1 Series (Carrera, Carrera 4, Carrera 2S, Carrera 4S)Berty, Do you have a website of REAP automotive? Or any other contact information? I couldn't find anything about them... My car is recently equipped with the M536 Euro standard alarm. I also had to extend it with a gps tracking system, is a requirement for high class vehicles now in the Netherlands. Thanks!
Does anyone know how to take the unit apart, and how to remove the needles?
PQR5CHE replied to PQR5CHE's topic in 997-1 Series (Carrera, Carrera 4, Carrera 2S, Carrera 4S)The US schale goes till 200mph, which is 320kmh. The Euro schale goes till 330kmh.
Hello, I am trying to find a set of new gauge faces, to convert my US spec car to a Euro standard. I had contact with a company that makes the gauge faces, and they told me that i needed to send in a 1:1 scan of my originals, because if they would just send me a Euro face, the indication of the analog speedometer would be off. Does anyone by change have a 1:1 scan of a US spec gauge face? I don't want to take it all apart, and then wait a couple of weeks till i have my new faces in... it's my daily driver. Thank you.
Does anyone have a link to this UK replacement insert??
Yes, my fearless wife took the picture.
PQR5CHE replied to geoff's topic in 997-1 Series (Carrera, Carrera 4, Carrera 2S, Carrera 4S)Hmm... After about 28k i replaced my stock springs for Eibach Pro-Kits springs, drove that for about 2k, and installed the Bilstein SP shocks because i didn't like the combination of the OEM shocks with Eibach springs. Now, at 33k i want to reinstall the complete OEM suspension, because the ride is WAY to hard! But after reading this, i don't know if it is smart to put the original shocks back, or purchase a new set. It would suck that after 10k i have to change it all out again...
I have my '06 C2 equipped with Bilstein SP shocks, combined with Eibach Pro-Kit springs. I love the look, and love the handeling, but REGRET it big time! Car is WAY to harsh, and here in Holland we have speed bumps everywhere! So i'm gonna bring it back to the dealer soon, to put the stock set back on the car.
After moving back to Europe last summer, i went to Germany to try out my '06 997 Carrera. Could be even a littlt faster, but it was late afternoon, so little busy... Great roads though!!!
Hello, I have a question about a very annoying sound that my '06 997C2 makes when i drive on a windy day. It sounds like one of the plastic covers on the bottom of the car starts tapping on the bottom. I went back to the dealer, and they couldn't find anything... The strange thing is, that it only occurs on windy days?! Anyone knows how to fix this problem? Thanks!
