  1. We can help with the Dension (or other) products. Email me anytime: eric@bumperplugs.com We have found the Dension is very easy to use once you understand the functions, and you can program it to your liking for the features you want most....upgradable, Bluetooth and Aux inputs available, etc.
  2. John, many thanks for your response. Wich Dension model you installed? We can help you with the Dension....email me or visit us at BumperPlugs.com eric@bumperplugs.com Thanks!
  3. These guys : http://www.bumperplugs.com/BPindex.html advertise a non-smoker package, but don't tell you what it is. Check them out. dadbeh We DO tell you what it is! :) It replaced the ashtray on the rear console of any 996 or 986. And it is for 996/986 ONLY. Nothing made for 997/987 variants (yet)..... Thanks for asking though. Sorry.
  4. The Dension will work just fine IF it is programmed correctly. There are multiple ways you can configure it through the menu system (designed that way). If you have the time and patience to pull together the correct manuals, you will find the programming steps necessary to go from track numbers to text display. When WE ship customers the GW500 units, WE include a detailed installation, user and programming guide to help with this. Some other vendors fail to provide this level of detail and also fail to support the product. If you bought from us, feel free to email me anytime with your
  5. Just did a 250 mile run today with my son. Up and down some nice mtn roads, great twisties, and some great food in between. :D Could hear it at a stop light after the first 100 miles or so, and plenty of other stops along the way back. I do not believe hot/cold affects it at all. But for now, I'm driving it as is. Thanks!
  6. Thanks....TSB no longer applies to '04, they changed some things. Still hoping it will go away same way it arrived.....out of the blue. ;)
  7. OK, posted this to Loren, got some great advice (thank you). Would appreciate any opinions on those who've been down this road. 2004 C4S Cab, 16.5k miles, dealer maintained since day one, no tranny issues, etc. Engine was replaced in late May (Porsche's tab, thank you), and at that time, the top tech who does all the svc on my car did the job. He had the tranny out, so we looked at the clutch just in case, and in his opinion, it looked like new. All lube points were taken care of during the engine swap and the car runs like a champ (though I do have to go through break in again).
  8. Take off the side leather panels first, then it should be pretty clear. We paint them every week. :)
  9. We can order them for you, one at a time. email me: eric@bumperplugs.com
  10. Shap, we are the primary US distributor for Dension for the Porsche, and can answer most of your questions. The CDC is taken out of the loop and is not supported by the Dension, however there are some threads on Rennlist regarding a few hackers who have managed to make it work. Feel free to email me with any questions: eric@bumperplugs.com If you go to our site at BumperPlugs.com click the Order page and see the item description, there is a link to details and screen shots. Thanks.
  11. Do you see any stitching around the hump over the instrument pod? If so, likely leather. HOWEVER, Porsche cautions on using leather conditioners on the dash, as that leather is treated much differently than seat or door panels. The leather is dried and stretched so that it can take the extreme temp variations under the glass. Too much conditioner, and it may loosen. You should simply wipe it down with a damp microfiber (not while it's hot from the sun), and leave it at that. A tiny bit of leather cleaner if needed, or even conditioner, should do the trick, but don't go hog wild. I've r
  12. I'd get over to Sharkwerks and ask Alex to have a closer look. I trust those guys. Fremont area.
  13. Not sure if you are aware, but we distribute the Dension Gateway 500 unit for Porsche, and the unit now works with all CDR24 head units. :)
  14. We stock and sell ONLY the units provided by the oem supplier to Porsche, no knock-offs here. Order online anytime ---> BumperPlugs.com Thanks. Email me with questions: eric@bumperplugs.com
  15. We have both in stock...feel free to email me for more details and pics. eric@bumperplugs.com (same lights)
  16. We have been coordinating a large group buy on our site. Email me if interested. This will take the place of the cd changer, and if you have PCM, it will show most of the details in your screen, with toggle-capable features. These units are MOST bus only, and will work with all '03 Porsche models and newer. Non PCM units will be available soon too. DETAILS
  17. Zenith is a stunning color, with tints of purple. I'd definitely reconsider Yellow. If Yellow is out completely, go with Red. It will look like it belongs.
  18. Hmmm, we include instructions in ALL our painted trim, so I guess you got it somewhere else. Plastic spatula, pry from one side. If you notice the prongs on the one you have, you'll see exactly where you need to push in a bit as you ease the old one out. Good luck. See me next time. :P
  19. Contact Gert at carnewal.com Tell him the Plug Guy sent you. ;)
  20. We have a large group buy underway, in place for months. We are a Dension distributor for their newest unit to interface through the MOST bus for Porsches from '03 to present Updated information is HERE Email me: Name Model/Year Nav? CD Changer? Bose? If you would like to get on the list. No obligation, just that we will notify you when the units are ready to ship, and with a 'deal' price we hope based on the large size of the group buy. Thanks. eric@bumperplugs.com
  21. Try a toothpick wrapped in paper towel. Should tip right out and then you can grab it. If you need a replacement, we stock 'em.
  22. Did it on my C4S Cab ('04) Savanna, not Sand....but you get the idea:
