  1. Thanks everyone. Falcon900EX - this sounds basically like what I'm doing, except I have the cables running out the front with the hood popped slightly, a towel over the paint and a cover on the car. I think I was more worried about heat build up, but since it's only maintaining, I shouldn't have to worry about that. Thanks.
  2. I have a Schumacher SC-600A - 6/4/2 Amp Charger/Maintainer SC-600A for my car. Just wondering if the following is an acceptable way to hook it up because last year I took out the battery every time I charged it and from what I’ve read it may not be the best thing to do. Basically, I’m putting the car away soon for the winter (until mid/late March) but I will take it out on the occasional nice day (+35/40 and sunny). This is what I plan on doing: - Connect jumper cables to the battery, thereby leaving the battery connected to the car. - Jumper cables runs through the trunk and out and t
  3. I've got several names: 1) Audi (well, my Audi is my daily driver - some people then just think the 911 isn't mine) 2) a used 7 year old Porsche (for those people might be wondering why I have a 911) 3) Porsche 4) an '02 C4S (to those who know)
  4. Thanks everyone. Actually I should have clarified (not that it really matters) I do have a charger/maintainer (Schumacher SC-600A - 6/4/2 Amp Charger/Maintainer), but unfortunately, it doesn't plug into the lighter. Thanks again for everyone's input. I won't be worrying about it until next November.
  5. I guess I'll get a maintainer for next winter. It's always good to have the charger around anyway. I was getting tired every spring of pushing my lawn tractor out of the shed and jumping it with my Audi!
  6. I just dropped off my '02 C4S at the dealer yesterday to get the ignition fixed. I was talking to the advisor about winter storage, because they had just brought in another car with a dead battery ("Good weather, everyone is finding a dead battery!") What I did this winter was remove my battery from the car and put a charger on it. I thought that was the right thing to do. He advised me that I could have problems when it was put back in the car - potentially shorting things out or losing codes, etc. Should I have not done this? The reason I took it out is that I didn't want to have the
  7. Do a search over on Rennlist (996 forum). Steve had his C4S shipped over to Germany earlier in the year (or late last year). I seem to recall him have an issue with his battery when he got over there. Eric
  8. I like hearing these good stories, because I'll be picking up my '02 C4S (Speed Yellow) in Louisville, KY in the next week or two and then driving 800+ miles back to where I am in NY. Eric
  9. Great looking car. I just bought an '02 C4S last night, although I won't be picking it up for another week or two since it's in Kentucky. I'll post some pictures shortly. Eric
