  1. 2000MY 996 C2 w/6speed with 85k miles. No issues. I've had it three years, driven it 15k miles, and enjoyed 8 PCA DE track weekends. I'm the 4th owner, but the car was well-maintained and kept reasonably local so long-term records were available during my pre-purchase inspection. That revealed no previous problems and consistent major and minor service intervals at a dealer. One spark plug tube was replaced upon purchase. Original RMS, clutch and transmission. No leaks or seepage. My 996 gets an annual checkup at the Porsche dealer and, of course, an hour-long inspection by my local independent shop before each DE event. Techs haven't found anything worth commenting on, and they know I want them in the "pre-flight" inspection frame of mind (i.e. looking for reasons not to fly). No measurable oil use between changes, even given track use. Changed to OEM sport pads this summer and will be installing new OEM rotors this winter (I believe the current ones are original). Saw my first warning light two weeks ago--brake pad wear warning at the track (as I was doing a lot of late-braking :-) Engine pulls strong and consistently. The car handles well and is a joy to drive, even on long hauls. Perhaps I'm just lucky, but this has been an incredible car. Upgrades include: OEM aero kit OEM front radiator kit LN Engineering low temperature thermostat, oil filter adapter and deep sump kit OEM X51 oil pan & baffle X74 suspension (on its way for a fall '09 installation; currently have factory US M030)
  2. Hello: I have a 2000 996 C2 coupe with 6-speed that was factory equipped with the US M030 suspension. I've got a line on what I think is a RoW M030 kit and have confirmed the spring numbers using Porsche 996 The Essential Companion. The strut part numbers I've been provided, however, seem to be the US versions. I've done a lot of online checking, but I'm not really sure given the many variations by year, body type, AWD, transmission, etc. Front strut # is 996 343 043 13 Rear strut # is 996 333 051 14 Can anyone confirm that these are (1) RoW or US struts; (2) if they are RoW whether they are correct for my car (see above); and (3) if not correct for my car what are the RoW strut part numbers? This seems like any easy thing to screw up, so thanks in advance for any help! Greg
