  1. Any update on your issue. Mine does the same thing. Mine does beep 2 times.
  2. I just bought a 2000 996 convertible. It did not come with the rear shelf that covers the hydraulics. Part# 996.551.035.01.B04. I have been having a little difficulty finding the part used and even wondering it its important to have in place. The top still operates great and the rear window is perfect so the lack of the part has not hurt the top. I usually don't have the top up and that is the only time you can see the carpet is through the window when its up. Thanks and great to be back!!!!
  3. i saw one of our posts say that you had the Carrera rims on your Boxster. Did you have to use spacers? how was the set up. Thanks, Don

  4. Izzy, I have the solenoid seal if you would like it. Part#99610522352. Brand new. I was getting ready to do mine until I sold mine and got another. Let me know!!!
  5. I de-snorkeled my 2005 987. I was getting 23.2 miles per gallon before I did the mod. I drove for about 500 miles in mixed driving. Now I get an average of 20.8 after the mod with about 500 miles of mixed driving. I may have lost a little just because I was driving harder to hear the air intake. I can hear a little differance and will probably keep the mod on there. It was not as dramatic a change as it was on my 986.
  6. Welcome!. I also had a 1999 986 and just bought a 2005 987 about 3 months ago. The two cars are both incredible but the 2005 is a much better driver and so far just as reliable as my 99. I never really had that many problems to begin with. The RMS on the 2005 (m96) engine were a little problamatic (per this forum) but was improved with the 2006 model year. Mine had an engine replacment with a 2006. Lots of good info here to give you more specifics...
  7. Has anyone tried this or is it even possible on the 987 to reseal the bolts? Mine is not bad. However, I took it to two dealers. One was going to charge me $2,400.00 the other was $1,000.00 or $1,100.00 with an oil change. I really dont want to spend the money right now since it only leaks after sitting a few days and it does not sit very often!!
  8. I only do mine one time per year right before winter storage.
  9. Got the decals today. Spent about 2 hours making sure they looked right and taking the old decal off. Nice decals from Zedex.
  10. where did you end up ordering from? Zedex did send them to me. I believe it was a one off.
  11. So the decal's are on the way. Now any suggestions on how to make sure it is placed correclty?
  12. I went to my local dealer MAG and they said they could not locate any info on it. I wonder if it is becasue they are in Ohio and the Car came from Arizona?
  13. I called Porsche North America and they would not release that info to me. Said I had to be the owner that did it. The Vin is WP0CA298X5U710506
  14. Thanks for all your help. So it looks like a newer engine. I would guess then that any warrenty for the exhange would be gone since they only warrenty for 2 years after replacement. So with the newer engine would it have the new RMS update then? I was planning on having the crank case seal replaced and since they would have the engine out I was going to have the RMS seal replaced at the same time. But if it has the newer RMS then maybe not until the leak gets worse. It only dropps a bit of oil after it sits for a few days. Any thoughts on the crank case leak?
  15. Were is the Stamp? I had it as #96/25AT61665055 Totally differant than what your's looks like. I will double check. Thanks
  16. Here is what the dealer supplied me as the serial#. The mechanic said that the numbers do not match the timing of the car. The car was put in service 01/05. I checked the sticker on the drivers door and it has 11/04 as the build date. So with your your formula here is what I think it means. Engine 25At 61665055 1st digit - No of Cylinders 6 2nd digit - Engine Version 1 3rd digit - Model Year 6 4th-8th digit - Serial Number 65055
  17. I just bought a 2005 987 non S. I took it to the dealer that I have some of my service done and one of the master tech's said he thought the engine I had was not the original. He said he has been doing this for 30 years and the engine serial number does not match the age of my car and he also said that it was way to clean. I tried to call Porsche North America but the could not release the information? I want to know if it is a new engine. I just started to develop a crank case seal leak and hope that it may be covered. The car has 45k miles.
  18. Show of hands. 1. My engine cooling fan is also always on. 2. I have never had a burning smell
  19. It is Black. Who knows how to add a contribution to someone else's name?
  20. That looks really good? If you decide not to use it let me know.
  21. Thanks for the response. Looked at Ebay nothing... I will have to go to a local print shop and see if they can duplicate something. I dont really want a flat decal. It needs to look OEM.
