judgejon replied to Fidgits's topic in 996 Series (Carrera, Carrera 4, Carrera 4S, Targa)ps: my wife had the same complaint when she replaced her '85 BMR convert with a '02. the interior was much smaller and eventually led to getting an suv. cheers...
judgejon replied to Fidgits's topic in 996 Series (Carrera, Carrera 4, Carrera 4S, Targa)My 996 is a bigger car than my 911SC, but the interior storage is not as good. the interior is actually, I think, a bit smaller.

I agree that if you're getting a new car you should get the pcm. I'm now using my 2003 C4S as a daily driver, and after driving a 911SC for years have had some adjustment problems. I'm guessing the mid engine Boxster is like the 4-wheel drive...going smooth in and out of corners, rather than hitting the apex and powering out of turns with max throttle steer. Smoothing it out through the curves is the key. I can't drive the C4 like the SC because the pcm comes on in the corner and scares the pants off me. so I usually turn it off when driving over local mountain roads. but I wouldn't have
