Thank you! Yes mine has the PDLS and they are black, which as you said go very well with the car's color. On engine: It says that my car was produced in October 2013 but the delivery note says that the delivery date was August 2014, so it might be one of those that was recalled while in factory and had its engine replaced. I asked my sales executive and he said that he "wasn't sure" and didn't have info. Im not concerned tbh but Is there a way I can find out? A friend had a full refund earlier this year from the same dealer following the recall. So i assume that I'll be safe even if anything happens. I myself had an engine failure on my (earlier production) 997 gen1 and my engine was replaced at no cost to me. Those had an intermediate shaft issue
Hi guys I've traded in my C2 MY13 (17000km) with a brand new MY14 991 GT3! The car has been ordered by the dealer so I didnt pick the options however it has almost every option I wanted. The right color composition, etc. It was also a good deal especially that the nearest delivery date if I order one will probably be in 6-8 months. I'm picking the new car tomorrow :D I have few questions, if I may: 1- how easy is it to replace the seat belts with another color? I'm thinking of red belts to match the stitching 2- can I replace the headlights with the LED fitted ones? If yes, is it worth the investment and technically recommended? 3- can anyone direct me to an online version of the 991 GT3 user manual? I apologize if answers to some of these questions are available elsewhere in the forum. I tried looking but couldn't find it. Regards, Hamad
Now take it easy Hamad. You want to break it in carefully. Will do, thanks! :D I'm in love
The car was delivered few hours ago. To be honest I couldn't wait longer to have the signs removed :) I want to drive it over weekend and can't wait longer.. I might have them remove the signs when I take it in for service. This car is powerful! Much more powerful than my old 997!!! :D
I heard back from my sales agent yesterday. The bodyshop don't recommend removing the Carrera sign "cause it'll leave marks on the body". Apparently removing the sign now is not recommended, unless I have the whole back side repainted. Not the most ideal outcome but I'd rather have the original paint... I'm supposed to collect it tomorrow :D
Thanks! Do you have a picture?
Hello, I'm picking up my new 991 next week. It's a Porsche approved 2013 C2 with around 12,000km on it. I'm very excited and look forward to getting behind the wheels. I was wondering what you guys would prefer for the back sign? I'm not quite convinced with the "P O R S C H E 911 Carrera". Everyone knows that it's a Porsche... I'm thinking of taking off the signs and keeping the 911 only. Thoughts?
Hi thereGot the car back. There was a random misfire when the battery died which caused the check engine light. I guess it was low voltage feeding into the engine that caused that. Changed battery, reset faults and all back to normal. Got her back home safely :) Thanks Loren!H
Unfortunately I don't have any of those at home. I'm calling the insurance company now to take it to the dealer. Will keep you guys posted.Regards,Hamad
How can I read that?
Hello all I got the check engine light earlier tonight when I started my car. Stopped it for 3 hours then tried again and the car won't start. Feels like a dead battery and I got German words on the screen. Seems like the battey needs replacement (which is expected as it's been there since the car was purchased). I carefully drive the car, only weekends. I usually drive with high rpm's (which is normal for these cars) but never reach the red zone. Last night I was enjoying the sports mode and reached 200km couple of times. Not sure that's the cause for check engine light.. Today i was treating the leather inside the car and the internal lights were on for a while which killed the battery probably. Question is, is it the dead battery that caused the check engine light or could it be something else (misfire etc.) I will take it o the dealer tomorrow but would like some advice beforehand. It's a 997s MY 2005 manual. Thanks in advance H
