  1. Sorry to resurrect this old thread. Do you guys know if this is really plug & play? I have an '08 987s w/heated seats that I factory ordered. My only regret is not getting climate control. Any guess as to the cost of the control unit? Thanks all, Scott. Part Number change -- For 987's MY08 on it is: 997.653.113.14.FMH MSRP $669.78 Wow, that was fast. Thanks Loren! Any guess as to whether or not it's plug & play? I'm hoping there isn't a different harness, or some fact-intalled-temp-sensor up in the dash that I'm missing. Thanks again, Scott.

  3. Yep, eastside porsche dealer. My car is an '03. I'm a little frustrated by the fact that I now have a rebuilt transmission when a simple linkage adjustment (which I asked for) would likely have taken care of my issues. Oh well -- seems to be working fine at the moment.
  4. Since I last posted the dealer replaced my tranny, which didn't do anything to improve shifter feel... So I decided to take matters into my own hands. I bought both the shift adjuster tool and the Porsche SSK. My shifter was *way* out of alignment (even though I'd specifically asked my dealer to check alignment). Now, in combination with the SSK, it shifts much better. Sill occasionally weird into 2nd, but much better overall. Still much worse than my old S2k, and Miata(s), and M3, and... :(
  5. Front shocks - 996.343.041.18 are for a MY02. Although the parts list says they can be replaced with 996 343 041 21 (for MY03). Front springs - 996.343.531.19 is correct. They should be marked Green and White. Rear shocks - 996.333.051.22 are for a MY02 (again). Although the parts list says they can be replaced with 996 343 051 26 (for MY03). Rear springs - 996.333.531.26 is correct. They should be marked Green and White. Stabilizer - 996.343.701.04 and 996.333.701.19 (replaces 996 333 701 17) are correct. 996.343.792.12 and 996.333.792.25 are new stabilizer mounts since your new bars are likely larger in diameter. Bump stops and compensation plates can be reusedas they are the same. The kits vary so I've seen some with and some without. So the only thing I see in question is the shocks. I do not know the difference between the MY02 and MY03 shocks. Perhaps it is just the manufacturer since the parts list says you can use the newer ones on an older car. <{POST_SNAPBACK}> Are you sure he doesn't need new rear bumpstops? I'm almost certain the ROW030 comes with new rear bumpstops -- mine did...
  6. Is it *always* notchy, or is it intermittent? Worse when cold? My 996 has had a sporadic issue w/shifting into 2nd since new. When warm it's almost always nice & solid. However, seemingly randomly it'll feel like I'm shifting through gravel. About once a month it'll pop out of 2nd as I'm letting out the clutch. The dealer hasn't been able to repro, and says my tranny feels "normal", so I'm thinking it might be linkage... Not sure.
  7. note that the spec is 36/36 f/r for the 17" wheels/tires, so it isn't as simple as maintaining an x-psi f/r delta. why the higher pressure in the rear on the 18s? best guesses I've heard yet are a) even tire wear and B) rim protection...
  8. There goes my final excuse :) Thanks! Slightly off topic, but related. I've seen a couple DIY instructions for suspension R&R on the various sites. Is there an "official" manual you'd recommend for someone doing the job themselves? I'd like to make sure I get the torques right, etc. Also, I'd like something more detailed than "remove the rear carpeting".
  9. Loren, can I bother you to check these part numbers? I have an '03 C2 6spd coupe. I'd like to double check the numbers before jumping into the install. Thanks! Front: 996 343 531 19 (spring, front, white/green, blue) 996 343 041 21 (damper) 996 343 701 04 (sway, front) Rear: 996 333 531 26 (spring, rear white/green, blue) 996 333 051 26 (damper) 996 333 701 19 (sway, rear) 996.333.105.03 (bump stops)
  10. I cranked the bass up to 8, and set treble at 0. This sounds better. I've actually got it faded to the front by +3. I'll experiment. It's strange that they made such a significant change to the equalization. I wonder why...
  11. Hmmm. I'm still getting bass out of the "enclosure". Perhaps it's just the change between the older "boomy" amps and the new one. IMO it sounds terrible, especially on CD. Backing the treble down to about neg-4 and upping the bass to +3 seems to make it a bit more bearable.
  12. I have a Bose stereo in my '03 C2. I had my amp replaced last week because my stereo would intermittently "freeze", and not turn on. Now, the stereo turns on just fine, but it sounds strange. Sounds like all highs/mids, with little bass. From this, 2 questions: 1) does a head-unit need to be "coded" for Bose after a new amp is installed? 2) does the Bose system have a different amp? Thanks, any ideas appreciated, Scott. '03C2 6spd, coupe.
  13. Hey Jenner: re my question above: "I've heard various reports regarding whether you need to either compress the front strut, or break the balljoint loose to do the front suspension. What did you guys do?" Thoughts? Anything tricky to worry about? Thanks, Scott.
  14. I've heard various reports regarding whether you need to either compress the front strut, or break the balljoint loose to do the front suspension. What did you guys do? I've done suspension replacements on 4 or 5 of my most recent cars, and this one looks pretty simple... Thanks, Scott.
