  1. Does anybody know exactly what this means (I have an X50, Manual, hence my intrique). I have some Porsche documentation that makes the same comment. The base constructions of the manual and automatic transmissions were also improved Thanks. Alex
  2. Loren, are you saying that the GT2 above is the same as the X50? Here is what I have been seeing in everything I have read: Porsche engineers achieved the increase in power and performance through modifications to the Turbo charger, the change air cooler, the control units and exhaust system in particular. The base constructions of the manual and automatic transmissions were also improved so that the power increase can also be ordered for the 911 Turbo Tiptronic at the recommended price of 12,644 Euro (price in Germany, inclusive of VAT). Its maximum speed has increased from 298 to 300 km/
  3. Can someone tell me what are the exact differences in detail, here is what I know/have heard: Strenthenged Transmission (not sure what that really means) Same Exhaust, Intercoolers, and Turbos as GT2 Modified ECU
  4. are the turbo 997 wheels a direct fit to the 996 turbo, or do you need spacers or anything?
  5. Sunset is the best period. Jeff is great as wel as Phil! I have purchased at least 20 parts over the last 2 years (trim pieces etc.) Yesterday got new climate control that will be painted to match grey leather :) PS I have a spare (like new) Graphite Grey leather (03 TT) center console lid if interested.
  6. Steering wheel only is probably more like 30 min, plus disconnecting battery, putting everything back, readjusting PCM2 etc. Total is more, but thanks. Alex
  7. Thanks Loren, found it. Too much work. Need to remove steering wheel, airbag, etc. I thought it just had screws on the bottom and it would come right out
  8. Hi could someone tell me how to remove the black plastic surround on the steering column? I want to paint it graphite grey but want to know if it's easy to take out and put back. Any special tools? Tips. Thanks Alex
  9. PS it also came with Heated front seats, supple leather, lumbar support on both seats, and memory seats, plus alum shifter, ss entry, and alum leather shifter.
  10. Personally, everyone is going to have a different opinion. When I went looking through for my car I ended up concluding that I wanted a Porsche Nav, therefore an 03 with PCM2 was a must. Then I read about the X50 package and decided that with 444hp and 457lbs of Torque (same as new 997, torque wise) I would always keep it stock and that was sufficient for now and in the future. Will hold it's value better. Ideally a light grey blue would have been my ideal color, I went with Seal grey and graphite grey interior. I paid $117k in CA in 10/03 with 3k miles. I have been very happy with my decisi
  11. You do know you have a C4S front lip and not a turbo front lip? Alex
  12. Size matters in regards to the new Shuffle, since it only has a earjack to USB cable to charge and load music. No screen. Can you see video on the PCM2 from your Ipod? PS Denison, no longer does business in the US according to a website.
  13. Has anyone tried to install a 2 generation (really small) 1GB I Pod Shuffle to a PCM2 (2003 TT)? Thanks Alex
