My 05' 996 C4s is 18 months old, has 6000 miles, and I've never done anything to the car except add oil when needed. The car runs and sounds perfect. Since I've had the car for this long, but only have 6000 miles, is there anything I should do? or wait for the 15k scheduled? 15,000 miles is probably another 2 years away since it's not my daily? Thanks for any input.
JP66 replied to RIC480's topic in 996 Series (Carrera, Carrera 4, Carrera 4S, Targa)I had a screw in the center of my right rear tire within the first few hundred miles of owning the car. I took it in to a local Discouint Tire center, and they fixed it with a "high speed patch". That was about 5000 miles ago, and the tire has maintained the same air pressure since the patch, and I drive hard and aggressive. If your tires are worn (not a few hundred miles like mine) then I would get new tires.
JP66 replied to a topic in 996 Series (Carrera, Carrera 4, Carrera 4S, Targa)A few months ago I got my C4S to 137mph, on a bridge. It was fairly stable with a slight crosswind. Last week I went 150mph on a lightly travelled highway, and the car was very stable, with no loose steering or car wable. I could have easily gone faster with confidence, but ran out of straight highway. I don't know what my tire pressure was, but I do have the P-SS9 suspension, with a lower ride height. Prior to PSS-9's I had the stock suspension and at 125mph, it felt a little "floaty".
JP66 replied to JP66's topic in 996 Series (Carrera, Carrera 4, Carrera 4S, Targa)Rather than painting the rims, does anyone know if they can be bought new, already from the factory in this color?
JP66 posted a topic in 996 Series (Carrera, Carrera 4, Carrera 4S, Targa)I'm interested in painting my GT3 wheels to the color in this pic. Anyone have experience with getting their wheels painted. Any pros/cons, or pics? tia
JP66 replied to Gabo2k's topic in 996 Series (Carrera, Carrera 4, Carrera 4S, Targa)Loren, I would also know the best way to remove the rear part of the headliner (996 C4S) so I could insert some sound dampening material. I have a custom installed audio system, but the area under the headliner rattles when the bass gets loud. Thanks, Jeff
I haven't tried my Rejex on my windows yet, but I assume it's similar to what Rain-X does......we'll see.
Izzy, I didn't notice that the car looks levitated :) The jack happens to be blocked by the post and tires. I bought my Rejex at www.corrosionx.com
Rejex applied to the inside and outside of wheels... Finished result, along with Griot's tire dressing.
JP66 posted a topic in 996 Series (Carrera, Carrera 4, Carrera 4S, Targa)I bought some Rejex recently and had a chance to finally use it. Mainly bought it to see if it "works" at keeping brake dust and dirt off of the wheels (or if it washes off easily). Here are a couple pics.....before and after. Rear wheel (the fronts were way worse) Both wheels washed, before Rejex. CONTINUED.....
JP66 replied to RLandis's topic in 996 Series (Carrera, Carrera 4, Carrera 4S, Targa)I think the sideskirts are the same for the narrowbody. I would go for the TechArt sideskirts, but any sideskirts might look weird alone, if nothing is added to the rear bumper to match the width of the sideskirts. Also made by TechArt.
JP66 replied to chicagoporsche's topic in 996 Series (Carrera, Carrera 4, Carrera 4S, Targa)Looks good. I just put these on my C4S....PSS9's
JP66 replied to de36band's topic in 996 Series (Carrera, Carrera 4, Carrera 4S, Targa)I have 2500 miles on my C4S, and I've had to add about 1 qt so far. I believe this is a standard issue for the first few thousand miles...
JP66 replied to rattles's topic in 996 Series (Carrera, Carrera 4, Carrera 4S, Targa)Interesting....I too have been using only Shell V-Power since I got my car, and I'm at 2300 miles. I'm also interested in what others have to say.
