  1. Jeff: Thank you very much for such a prompt response. I replaced the center console about one year ago (painted it) and did not recollect seeing the bend to the right on the stock shifter. Not paying attention I guess. I am relieved that I did not get a damaged unit though. Tx. Jeff '03 996 TT
  2. I bought a Porsche SS kit and the shift handle is bent about 20 degrees to the right. Is this right or should the handle be completely straight? Thanks. Appreciate any insight. :)
  3. Does anyone know where I can purchase a complete set of 996TT factory workshop manuals? They appear to be rare. TIA. Jeff '03 TT
  4. I wanted to do the same thing and have been told by several good sources that you cannot buy the embossed armrest through Tequipment. If you can figure out some way to get this part post-build please let me know. Jeff '03 Turbo
  5. Loren: Do you have the part number for the C4S rear reflector strip? Thanks. Jeff ;)
  6. Refer to attached image: Does anyone know if you can retrofit the C4S rear spoiler red reflector strip to a the TT aerokit rear spoiler? It looks great on the C4S w/ factory Aerokit. Thanks in advance. Jeff '03 TT
  7. Thanks a lot Loren. I appreciate your help. Jeff
  8. Loren: Thanks for your prompt response. I am a bit confused about the compensation spacers. You state: "The compensating spacers are based on the tolerance color code on your springs (this is a separate code from the version color stripes). For the RoW TT rear springs there is a 0.4 mm spacer (996 333 511 03) or 0.5 mm spacer (996 333 511 02). For the front there is a 3.0 mm spacer (996 343 525 00) or a 6.5 mm spacer (996 343 525 01)" My questions are: 1) How do I know which spacers to use for my application? 2) How do I determine tolerance codes? 3) Can the spacers form my std. US suspension be retrofitted for use with the ROW sport chassis? Tx. in advance. Very useful information. Jeff ;)
  9. Loren and others: I found and purchased a slightly used 996 Turbo Euro Sport Suspension Package (not the X74 package) delivered by Carnewal last year to a fellow PCA member. I am installing it on my '03 TT. I have several questions: 1) Is the 996 Turbo Euro Sport Suspension Package Carnewal sells different than what is standard on ROW 996 TTs? 2) To your collective knowledge, has Porsche 'materially' changed the US or ROW 996 TT suspension set-up from MY02 to MY03? 3) Does ROW 996 TT cars use different sized sway bars compared to US TT cars? 4) The parts did not come w/ F/R bump stops. Can you provide me with the part numbers for bump stops used on 996 Turbo Euro Sport Suspension Package. 5) I found another post here re: a NA 996 030 query and there was a discussion on 'compensation spacers'. Is this an issue for my car? Carnewal's package does not include any spacers and only comes with the shocks and springs.... 6) Finally, what are the spring/shock part numbers and/or color codes I should expect to see on the ROW TT shocks and springs? Lots of questions. Sorry - Thanks in advance. :) Jeff '03TT
  10. I have decided to add some more carbon trim to the interior of my TT. This after drooling over some of Kevin M.'s and Gary (FL) carbon interior trim project images. I need help and detailed instructions for the following tasks: 1) Removal of instrument gauge trim surround, and 2) Removal of switch panel 'horseshoe' (the panel holding the PSM and other switches) I am also doing the lower trim panel piece and dash trim strips (basically the factory small carbon package) but already have found good instructions on this and other sites. Loren and others - can you help? I would especially appreciate workshop manual illustrations where relevant. Any other tips are welcomed. BTW Loren - Great Site. Thanks. Jeff :)
