  1. Does anybody now how to install 996 561 127 00 01C Wind Deflector Trim Piece. I simply can't figure out the correct positioning of the trim piece with regards to snapping it into place? Thanks for your help
  2. I have worked for a highly regarded Japanese automotive manufacture for almost 30 years. I train dealers how to run their service departments and how to accomplish high levels of customer satisfaction. Recently I bought a Porsche. Let me say that so far I am very unimpressed with Porsche dealers. They may sell expensive cars, but their sales & service departments are very poorly run and they simply don't seem to care if you are satisfied or not. I think their certified used car program would be better if the Porsche reps trained their dealers better. When you don't get the keys and manual
  3. Thanks to each of you for your referrals. Can anyone also suggest a Porsche Dealer in the L.A. area as well. I willing to drive up to 100 miles from L.A. for a "great dealer". My first experience at Beverly Hills Porsche was less than OK. Some say Santa Barbara or Newport Porsche have good service departments. I know Porsche dealers are expensive, but if they won't "ding" my car and do the work required correctly the first time...then that's what I'm looking for. Thanks in advance for your suggestions.
  4. I just bought my first P car ("06 997 cab). I would appreciate your recommendations for the best Porsche Dealers for service in the L.A. area. I would also appreciate your suggestions for the best independent Porsche shops in the L.A. area.
  5. If you are reducing the offset by 16 mm, that means that the new wheels will be moving outward by 16 mm, so the tires might rub your car. That will be amplified by the fact that the tires you are thinking of using are wider than the ones you currently have by 10 mm (305 - 295). So we are in theory talking about 16mm (from offset change) + 5mm (1/2 of the extra tire width) in extra space you need between the tires and the fenders in your current setup to be able to accomodate the new wheels and tires. Measure it, if you have much more than 21mm between the tires and the fenders currently the wh

  7. I purchased a 2006 C2 997 cab. I am able to purchase some new takeoff 2008 C4S wheels and tires. The C4S front wheels and tires are the same size and same offsets as those now on my car. HOWEVER, my current rears are 11x19" (67 mm) 295/30 ZR 19 and the ones I am thinking of installing are 11x19" (51 mm) with 305/30 ZR 19. THUS, the rears would have a 16 mm smaller offset. MY QUESTION: What are the issues with reducing the rear offset by 16 mm? Thanks in advance for your comments.
