  1. The Alumalook trim looks great. It would certainly help lift the interior of most 996s which have the black leather trim. Thanks for the info about painting the air vents. :thumbup: I found out that Arctic Silver is a brighter colour than the Alumimum look btw
  2. Hi All I've got a facelift 996 with some sliver trim on the centre airvents slats. I'm trying to figure out what the acutal colour is so that I can get the side airvent slats painted to match. Any tips on how I can do this? Thanks!
  3. Andy_M, thanks for an excellent write up. This has given me the confidence to upgrade my door speakers. A couple of questions: - what's the impedance of the Porsche fitted doors speakers - have you tried the Kickers and if so which impedance version did you choose (there's a 2 Ohm version and 4 Ohm version) Thanks!
  4. Can anyone tell me whether a set of aftermarket mufflers from a C4S would fit on a C4 i.e. like Fabspeed or similar? Thanks in advance
  5. Has anyone got any suggestions about a fix for this problem? I've got exactly the same problem on my car. It's an '03 C4S UK car (so right hooker) and I've just replaced the rear tyres for Pirelli PZero Rosso N5. The fronts are Continental SportContact2 N2 with 5mm. Do I have to replace my front tyres as well? :huh:
  6. After reading a few articles on a Cayman forum, I was wondering if it is possible to buy an underdrive pulley for a 3.6l 996 or if anyone has fitted one to their car? Thanks
  7. So I had a go at fixing this problem myself and seem to have sorted the problem! Step1: Disconnect the battery Step2: Remove the plastic cover surrounding the CD Changer under the front bonnet (hood). THis is held down with 6 screws and three trim clips. Step 3: Remove the CD Changer unit. It's held on by a 10mm bolt and two spring clips at the base which you just slide the unit out of Step 4: Under the CD Changer, unclip the MOST connector and reconnect. There's a thumb thingy that you press first before the connector releases Step 5: Repeat for the amplifier that resides next to the spare wheel Step 6: Reconnect the battery and put the keys in the ignition.Turn key to position 1 or 2 and then switch on the PCM unit and it should hopefully recognise the CD Changer. In my case the CD Changer was already getting power so it seems to have been a bad connection in the MOST connectors. Step 7: If everything works, refit everything. HTH
  8. Can anyone help me with troubleshooting this problem? I started up the car this morning and got the following message on the PCM2 display: System Error: CD Changer Not Recognized. It was working fine yesterday. I had a look and the CD Cassette ejects and reloads fine so it looks like power is getting to the unit. I've also been to the Porsche dealer and the technician said a fault was displayed on his diagnostic machine and he thought it might be a fuse on the CD changer itself. Now if the unit is clearly getting power to eject the CD cassette surely the fuse is ok? Car is a 2003 MY 996 C4S (UK Spec) with manual transmission, PCM2 running 2007 MapCD and CDC4 Changer. Thanks in advance for your help
  9. I'm a bit confused about whether it's safe enough to remove the muffler box completely. i've got a Schnell kit fitted at the moment and they say that the muffler cap + cover they provide is to allow for the items to pop off in the event of a backfire. Can someone please confirm whether it's safe to remove the muffler box and seal off the bypass hole completely? Many thanks
  10. Has anyone tried Iridium spark plugs in their car and if so, what benefits have they noticed? are they worth fitting? Thanks
  11. I'm a Newbie to Porsches and just started down the modding route.... I've got a UK Spec 2003MY C4S with PCMII and would like to remove the useless telephone handset. Can anyone point me in the direction of a DIY for this or tell me how to do it? Also, is anyone interested in buying this handset off me once I've removed it? Thanks :)
