  1. I'm a little concerned because it seems to sit a little lower upfront than I expected, but I was told the height is normal. Still trying to figure that out. The ride actually seems better than stock. I drove to work using my usual route and it seems to react to some of the bumps softer than it previously did. I'm still getting used to it so I will post a full review after I'm used to the ride. In the mean time, here are pics.
  2. Did you buy it already? If not, check out www.fdmotorsports.net. Highly recommended. Excellent quality work. Incredible sound at a fraction of the cost. I haven't seen one bad review and I love the mufflers I bought from him. The sound is intoxicating and everyone I know agrees.
  3. It's still a rear engine car: try to avoid slamming on the brakes in the middle of a curve or the rear of the car will want to trade places with the front. You may have to in order to avoid a collision at one point in time or another, but try to learn and expect how the car will react. When oversteering, braking may also cause more spin. It drives completely different than a front engine car despite that the 996 handles way better and is more stable than it's predecessors. Have fun, but be careful. Don't push too hard too fast.

  5. Loren: I'm able to pull up the digital readings on the climate control display on my '01 996.
