    2007 Targa (Guards Red)
  1. Hi, Don't try to change the faces at home. I had my 997 gauge faces changed at Palo Alto Speedometer. Precision tools, professional skill and proper calibration are needed to complete this work. It cost me $200 plus shipping to change the faces. Considering the cost to replace the gauges (<$2,000) - it was worth it. John
  2. I have a 2007 Targa 4 with a PCM but no nav system and no CD-Changer. There is no one in my area (Vicotria, BC Canada) that is a NAV-TV installer. I bought a NAV-TV Sirius Satellite Module (Part - SIRPOR2 USB) that came with a Sirius Satellite Radio kit. Looking at the instructions in the Nav-TV box, it should be a realtively simple install. However, before I follow these instructions, I would like to ask if anyone here has installed this kit in a Porsche 997, and if so, do you have any advice to avoid pitfalls? Where did you install the antenna? If you have a C4 model, where did you
  3. Al Thanks for th information. I'll go over your changes next time we get together. I'm in no rush to get it wrong. John
  4. I have a US model 2007 997 Targa4 that I bought used with only 4,000 miles on it. I was really surprised to learn that it has Halogen lights!! I can buy a set of 2006 Porsche Turbo xenons with the ballasts and bulbs for a good price. But before I buy them I tried to get a straight answer from my local Porsche dealer as to whether I can retrofit these xenons to my Targa in a reasonable simply changeover. My dealer is not certain as there is no bulletin for this retrofit modification. Would an of you know if this project can be accomplished without major expense, or would anyone have a DIY in
  5. If you contribute to Renntech you can get access to the Technical Bulleting that tells you how to mount the navigation system on the bukhead, and it also lists the parts you need to mount it John
  6. I'll buy the spare when you are ready to sell it (250) 474-4608. Thanks John :renntech:
  7. Hi, I bought your AVIC Kit on EBAY. I am about to install it but before I do wouold you mind telling me how you installed the camera on the rear bumper? Where did you find the hole to pass the wire through? How did you get th wire it past the enegine compartment and into the cabin? Thanks' John Hi John, Thanks for buying the Kit by the way. My brother and I are very appreciative of everyone who has contributed to this thread and folks like yourself who gave us a chance and bought our kits. As for the Camera, sorry for the long delay in getting things organized. With the camera in

  9. Hi, I just saw your AVIC installation. Looks great! I am about to install an AVIC Z3 in my 2002 996 Carrera. I noticed in the picture on the right that you appear to have a camera installed. How did you mount it? Did you have to drill holes in the bumper? JohnAVIC
