  1. Thanks for that reference. It does confirm they are a direct bolt-in. However, it doesn't really say if the electrical items can be made to work. And, if so, HOW? I found basically the same thread on 6Speed and will try to get that person to give more wiring details.
  2. I tried search before posting. No luck. i saw some discussion over on 6Speed, but not detailed.
  3. Are any modifications required to install a set of 997 seats in a 2002 996 C2? I'm curious about the rails, electronic controls, seat heaters and airbags. Any info appreciated. Thanks,
  4. Those tire sizes are way wrong for the car. The fronts are WAY too tall. The rears are just a little taller than OE and may work.
  5. My windshield is broken and needs to be replaced. I checked with the dealer and they use an outside glass company to do the install work with Porsche parts. Two questions: 1. Is the antenna for the radio in the windscreen? I have an '02 C2 coupe. Any reason not to use an aftermarket piece of glass? 2. Has anyone had the replacement done by an indy glass co? I've had repairs from Safelite and am not sure the kids they send out for that work are competent for the whole windshield in my Porsche. Thanks,
  6. If you track your car, there really is no point in having the sensor plugged into the pad. Just tie it off. You will be looking at your pads often enough to spot wear and they are just a nuisance when changing the pads.
  7. I tried using the footwell switch for this exact item. It won't work out of the box. I've got an ugly radio shack switch under the dash now. I'd certainly like to find a solution to use a Porsche switch that fits into one of the console slots.... If you get this figured out, please let us know.
  8. The spoiler light has never come on before since the spoiler is not the mechanical moving type. When I reconnected the wires, I had one for the 3rd brake light in the wing, one for the fan and another for the light. There is an unused plug sitting on the passenger side that seems to be included with the other wires going to the decklid. Should that be plugged somewhere? I don't see a home for it and don't recall having to unplug it when removing the deck/spoiler. Thanks
  9. I had to take off my rear decklid. I have a fixed rear spolier, factory installed. Now that it is back on, the car seems to think I've got the standard moveable spoiler. I'm getting the SPOILER ACTIVATION FAILURE warning when I exceed 60 mph and again when I slow down. It seems that I have everything hooked up as it was originally. What did I do wrong and how do I fix it? Thanks,
  10. Purplxd - did you ever get this installed? I've got one also and am looking for the best way to set it up, starting with mounting the heads on the front bumper.
  11. CA is a very protectionist state when it comes to vehicle warranties. They make it nearly impossible for most aftermarket extended warranty companies to sell there by requiring them to only be sold through a dealership. The plan offered by InsurancePoliciesOnline.com is available in CA. The reason is that it is an actual insurance policy and not simply an extended service contract. This is an important distinction. The policy is issued by Virginia Sureity Insurance Company, which is duly licensed in CA, and carries an A rating from AM Best.
  12. I agree that it wouldn't be an ideal option, but I also don't think it would be horrible. Assuming you have the proper size tires - match the outside diameter and rev's per mile as close as you can - it should handle decently. If you do this, start with changing the front's to 17's. You know, another option is to sell the spare 17's on ebay and use the money to buy new 18" tires. In all honesty, the prices of the tires is not that bad in either size. You won't have any problem with insurance once you wreck. There is no exclusion for supidity.... j/k
  13. Check out a Toyo Proxes 4 - very good quality, decent all-season and reasonable price.
  14. Be sure you match, or exceed, the OE speed and load index. There are MANY quality tires available at reasonable prices other than Pirelli, B/S, Conti, Michelin, etc. Kumho, Nexen, Falken, Hankook, Toyo, etc are all good options. Many of these will also last longer than the OE, but not give quite the same performance at the extremes. I've driven on (and sold) just about all of them and think you'd do fine with any for a daily driver.
