  1. I just installed it last night. I bought mine from Directcartoys. The quality of the piece is outstanding. Fit and finish is perfect. The paint match was perfect. The installation went very smoothly. I Love it. Joe D.
  2. I'd like to thank all the great folks here who helped me with this. I ended up calling another AutoZone and they had the 4 pc set in stock so I went and bought them. The bits are more substantial than I thought. They require a 1/2" chuck or Socket. They did the job perfectly! thanks for everything guys. Joe D.
  3. Thanks for that. I looked down the list and found a 4 piece set that has the majority of what I think I will need. THANKS!! Joe D.
  4. I went my local Autozone here in NJ. When I asked them if they had any triple star bits, they looked at me like I had 3 heads and then told me to look in Eisle 4. When I turned the corner and looked up Eisle 4, there were 1,000's of bits hanging. I was in my glories.. 15 minutes later I left empty handed because they didnt have a single triple star bit. Today I called my local NAPA. I asked them if they had Triple Square bits. There was silence on the other end. Then I said they look like torx bits with double the amount of points. Then the guy said, Ooooh serrated bits, we got them". I will
  5. Hi, I tried to be self sufficient but I cant find anything on this. I want to buy the right bits for tightening things on my 997. Does anyone know the Triple Square equiv to T-40 and T-30 (torx)bits? Any help would be appreciated. JD
  6. You spec'd your new car almost exactly as I would have if I was lucky enough to get a new one. I love the Makassar wood on Cocoa. It looks so rich. Did you get the Makassar center console? In my case, going from a Midnight Blue to a Meteor Grey (in my case) I was a little dissapointed at 1st. I loved the Dark Blue. However after owning my Meteor Grey 911 for a couple of months, I must admit, I am not as critical with a little nick here and chip there. I just cant see them as easily as I did with the Dark Blue. Now I honestly think I like the new color even more. Switching to a White will
  7. Carlos, Once again, I really appreciate you helping me. Just an FYI.. The T40 bit is not the correct bit. Its really a triple square and I dont have them. I've yet to find one in my area. I dont know what the triple square equivalent is to the t40, so I cant buy it online. Also, the torx bit that fits the latch mechanism on door is t30. That is a triple square as well. So both bolts were tightened with the wrong bit. I was able to crank it down good though. Thanks, Joe D
  8. Just an FYI on my DIY... I tried fixing this with a regular ratchet wrench and a t40 bit. It turns out the bolts were VERY loose. Not only the latch bar, but also the 2 bolts that hold the latch to the door. I moved them to the perfect spot, snugged them up and now the doors are perfectly aligned and I even hear less rattling when I hit big bumps. I think someone fell asleep on the assembly line. My baby is perfect now! Joe D.
  9. I love it. I was looking at the same exact piece for my car. I will probably do it after the holidays.
  10. Ok, I am trying it. Any idea what kind of bit I'll need to buy for this? Is it a Torx? Or a Triple Square? I'll need the size too.. JD
  11. Thanks for the response. I actually thought it would be easier than that. Considering I wouldnt know the difference between an impact driver and a TV remote, I'll probably leave this to an expert. I really appreciate the time you spent trying to help me. Thanks, Joe D
  12. Aha! Just the answer I was praying for. I should have known it was nothing. That puts my mind at ease. Thanks! Joe D. I went to a local Porsche dealership and looked at the new 911's. My doors are out further than the new one's are (when they are closed). So they will need adjustment. One tell-tale sign to me was the rubber molding along the beltline (by the bottom of the window) is not lining up with the molding (around the stationary rear seat window) before the B-pillar. It sticks out 1/8" farther than the molding before the b pillar. That said, does anyone have a good method for

  14. The PCM does read MP3's on CD's when placed in the slot in the PCM. I was amazed with the quality of the sound that the BOSE system produces from measely 3 meg Mp3's. I made 3 jukebox CD's with almost the entire contents of my Ipod on them and I am very happy. JD
  15. Hi, I've taken a day or so to search for this all over and found nothing that helps. Can anyone sugggest a way to adjust the door stops on my 2007 C2 Coupe? The outside door panels on both driver and passenger sides are not perfectly flush when I close the doors. They are only off 1/16th of an inch or so. I dont have any air or water leaks. Its not a big deal but its been bothering me as of late. Its just not perfect like the rest of the car. I called the dealer and they told me to bring it in but I'd rather not. Anyone know how to adjust this? I'd appreciate it. Thanks, Joe D
  16. I am so glad to help. Its a nice setup. I cannot overemphasize enough the difference the 6x9's made in the back. Monday night I did some spirited (to put it lightly) driving with the top down and the bass stays in the car and sounds amazing. Bruce Springsteen's "Human Touch" sounds unreal. One more thing, The W505 is coming out in April. I already bought the 1st one due in, so I'll be sure to let you all know how that works out. Thanks, Joe D. *****UPDATE***** The Alpine IVA- W505 head unit was installed yesterday. I've had a month or so to live with the existing sound system and I
  17. Thanks to everyone who read my post and responded. This place is a really nice place to visit. My car is a hobby for me and this makes my hobby alot more enjoyable. I contacted my local Porsche shop and asked about installation. Unfortunately, they told me that a modification such as this WILL void my warranty. I read my contract and yes in fact it says that in the fine print. I bought the car with a 2 year warranty, and I am only 4 months into it. I will upgrade once my warranty runs out. If I am blessed, maybe to a 997S or Turbo :thumbup: . If I still have my C4 cab, I will be fortunat
  18. Hi, I am planning on upgrading to the IPD plenum (any chance of a group buy???). I talked to a local shop here NJ and they told me along with the Plenum, upgrade the cold air intake to the Fabspeed and keep the factory airbox. They recommended replacing the Porsche airfilter with a BMC filter. Overall, this doesnt sound like a bad idea. Anyone out there have this same setup? The reason I'd consider it is I am concerned about Check engine lights and fouled MAF sensors. However. I'd like to goose up the power in my 1999 C4 Cab. Any thoughts? Thanks, Joe D.
  19. Kim, Great post. The same thing happened to me the other night. I heard the relay clicks and something told me to check the engine cover. It was open. Funny thing is, I think it opens on its own. I think if I travel on a bumpy road the jarring opens the latch. Weird. Thanks, Joe D.
  20. The interior color is black. These particular pictures show the contrast in the colors of the carpet. Rotor Rotor, Thats great! My installer wanted to do the same exact thing. I got impatient because he told me it would take 2 weeks and I punk'd out. The one thing you WILL notice is you wont have to crank up the volume so high to get good bass. With my 6x9 setup, I have to crank the volume to get thumping bass. There is no "warmth" at low volumes. You wont have that problem because you built an enclosure. I love it. Good for you rotor! Thanks for sharing. Joe D.
  21. I realize its a dealer, but I ordered the exact trim piece through Ray Catena Porsche in NJ and it only cost $5.93. Mine hasn't come in yet, its due in Monday. Joe D. Joe, Thanks for the quick response. Is your trim piece for the middle or upper part of your lower console? I would like to find one for the upper side personally. RotorHead Hi, I dont think the upper slot will hold the AC Heat controller. Its slightly larger and there are slots in teh frame that the components slide into. I think it can only go on the bottom. My trim piece was ordered for the bottom. Th

  23. Hi, I am not sure. When I asked the installer what he put in he doors, he said he put in the 6-1/4". The stock grills are in place and nothing looks modified at all. JD
