  1. I rented a base 991 before buying my 991S. I was amazed as how fast the base was. And depending on where you drive it, it may be enough for you. I drive my car on the mountains near my home and 400Hp sometimes is too much for curvy roads, with tight bends and narrow sections, but I manage. The one I rented was from Hertz and it was a bit of fun. I say go for it if it is a good deal.
  2. Crickets... Here is the latest. No go. Q1- can I use the GT4 wheels on my narrow body 991S? The sizes are the same but the offsets are different so I wouldn't recommend it. The GT4 front wheels would sit 10mm farther inside the fender than your stock wheels and the GT4 rear wheels would be 20mm farther outside than your original wheels. Even if they did fit, the fact that the front wheels base would be 20mm narrower and the rear wheel base would be 40mm wider, it could result in a diminished driving experience with greater understeer in the vehicle. Q2- can I upgrade to center lock hubs and get the GT3 wheels to fit in my 991S? Unfortunately Porsche doesn't offer a center lock conversion for the 991... We have priced it out in the past as individual pieces and it was over $20k... I'm pretty sure you wouldn't be able to use the GT3 rear wheel though as it is 1.5" wider than you rear wheels. Have you considered aftermarket wheels like HRE?
  3. Suncoast : A 991 center lock conversion price is $5K and the price on the GT3 wheels depends on the ones you like the most, here the link to the GT3 wheels. https://www.suncoastparts.com/category/991GT3CHASSISWHEELS.html Center locks are a personal thing, some people love them some people don't like them so I guess is up to you.
  4. I have been tinkering around with my photos and I wanted to ask for opinions on GT4 wheels on a 991.1 or assuming the cost is not too crazy, upgrading to center locks and going for GT3 wheels. Has anyone tried the GT4's? I heard I would need spacers on the front wheels.
  5. Apologies on the delay. I drove 2 weeks. Porsche paid for insurance. Mine was a factory collection, meaning new car collected at the factory so no issues on emmissions.
  6. Thank you! Trying to figure out why my horn does not sound, recently changed the bushing mechanism behind the airbag OK, here is the entire fuse system listing for your car: I would take a look at fuse holder E, fuses 1 & 2, which are 30Amp units for the power seat controls. If no fuses are out, I would again suggest having the car scanned to make sure they are actually activated. It should be similar to the one above.
  7. Loren I must be going crazy the first SN /code worked 9393 worked not sure, but I am certain I saw the other SN. Apologies in the extra work! Stereo is on! Thank you
  8. Sorry can't find my post from yesterday V5007153 r 2896 CD-R 210 Code 9393 won't work
  9. Loren would you mind helping me 986 1997 CD-R 210 Becker R 2896 v5008153
  10. Do you have the fuse diagram for a 1997 986 OK, here is the entire fuse system listing for your car: I would take a look at fuse holder E, fuses 1 & 2, which are 30Amp units for the power seat controls. If no fuses are out, I would again suggest having the car scanned to make sure they are actually activated.
  11. 175000 miles. Isabella just got a CEL this morning. Otherwise she is a joy to drive! Been to Mexico (Sinaloa) and back, often you will see me on page mill road - sky line - black road "avoiding" traffic on 280.
  12. I agree. The 50s have lots of nice touches but colors are hit and miss. Still like the car regardless
