  1. Am looking at a C2S on the lot with PDK but no Sport chrono. Would like some opinions on value of Sport chrono. Truthfully I dont like the clock on dash so thats good. The launch control is fun ( tried it on another car ) but think unless Im on the track (no plans to be ) this is a short term novelty. My main concern is the value in the remapping of throttle response and shift points. And also this added adjustments of A/C lights .....????? Is there some automatic remapping of throttle response during spirited driving ? I guess to sum up, If im driving in Manual mode is there much difference between this and auto with sport plus button on ? Thanks
  2. 01 S 28K miles original owner . My Check Engine light came on a couple of weeks ago , I took it to the dealer who nicely checked the problem and said that if it returned he would probably have to order an oxygen sensor . So after 4-5 days it returned. Now what ? is this something I should attempt or not ? If I have the dealer do it what kind of $$ am I looking at ? This has gotten me to start thinking of getting an OBD scanner , any recs?
  3. I am curious to hear what people think between buying an 08 S vs an 09 S . I certainly like the 09 electronic improvements ie Bluetooth and IPOD integration , but 08s can be had at a better price. Any other thoughts or known improvements in 09s to push me towards paying a little more ?
  4. Here you go; http://www.porsche.com/all/media/pdf/MJ09_...luetooth_UK.PDF Thanks. Amazing that my dealer couldnt find this and even talked with his North America Rep who didnt have the info. I forwarded it to him. I think this is the UK version , but will assume/hope the US is the same.
  5. Does anyone know of a list/website for phones that are compatable with the bluetooth option in 09s . I just called Porsche of america and they were no help. I have a Blackberry Curve from Verizon .
  6. I have a 01 S , the top works great but I have never done anything to it. Is there some basic maintenance ie tightening/lube to the mechanism that I should do ?
  7. I have a 04 S with 40 K miles. I took it in with a similar complaint although my stutters ( to the point of feeling like the car is shaking. It occurs usually when I am accellerating lightly around 15-25 mph . The dealer test drove it and for once felt my complaint. He has said it is the valve body in the transmission. ( I have no idea what that is ) Our main mechanic is out ( surgery) and they will repair it when he returns. I was skeptical of this diagnosis until you ( shastamonk) mention the same thing... Did it work ??
  8. Once you use the valentine for a while, the direction arrows become invaluable . It is very accurate letting you know if you are approaching a radar source or pulling away from one . I agree that the Escorts pick up radar just as well and that is what I had prior to the valentine. I personally am amazed that Escort hasn't copied Valentine and put directional arrows on. I will not consider an Escort again until they do .
  9. There is no question...... the valentine is the best unless you want to spend $ 1000 to have one wired into front and back of car . The valentine can be upgraded by sending it in as needed. check their site http://www.valentineone.com/
  10. Im trying to configure an order for a 2007 997S I have ruled out the Sport exhaust as it is a lot of money for a little more noise with no performance benefit. Im trying to decide about the sport chrono package. The order guide and Porsche website are vague about what the extra controls ie lights , locks and climate control are. Can someone with this explain what these extra controls/settings are ? I am not thrilled about the dashboard "bubble". Anyone have the sport seats ? ...I will be the sole driver..Is the Electric seat package worthwhile ? The extended Navigation is it worthwhile ? I am going to at least get Regular Navi. The Stainless Exhaust tips...worthwhile or can I get after-market if I wish I had later. I am not getting the phone module but like the multifunction wheel.. Is that worthwhile just for radio controls/... Am I missing any other must haves ???? Thanks everyone ...I only want to do this once... Trading in a 2001 Boxster S
  11. Thanks......I did go through the order guides and all I could find was TPMS also. That probably accounts for price increase.
  12. I'm trying to decide whether I should buy a 06 C2S on the lot or order an 07... Im trying to find out if there are any changes???
  13. I thought I would give my own follow up. I found that I could use the Dock and plug the headphone to rca cable into the back of the dock and now my volume is strictly controlled by the stereo not the IPOD . Now I just need to find a cable that fits into the bottom of the IPOD and ends in the 2 rca jacks so I dont have to drive around with a docked IPOD on the passenger seat. Any suggestions???
  14. Today I installed the Becker part into the back of my CDR220. It works great and was very easy. I am using the headphone jack for the output and find that most of the volume needs to be adjusted at the IPOD with the CDR220 turned to max volume. Can I use a docking cable directly into the RCA jacks and will this allow me to control the volume via the stereo ? I have read the Belkin auto kit descriptions , This doesn't interest me. I don't need the charging capability in the car.
  15. How does the CDC plug into the receiver ? Not something you can disconnect or jump into ??
