  1. For PCA racing, no tint allowed in excess of factory original tint. All tinting is discouraged. Not AS big a deal for DE, but it is better if the person behind you can see you inside your car (and also through the windshield of your car). If you are running with a group that utilizes a point-by and your windows are very dark, you'll be forced to do the silly-looking point OVER the roof with your left hand to indicate a pass to your right.

  2. Thanks for taking a shot Loren. I continue to be perplexed though. I can't imagine that anyone would go through the work of fitting TC to a non-TC car. My car also has an aerokit, which I'd definitely assume was added by the dealer. Almost all the options, even ones that are pretty easy to change (CF parts, alum. dials, wheels, Xenons, Headlight washers, CD changer) correspond to the Porsche list. Porsche correctly lists Y05 for my car- Carbon/Aluminum brake & shifter handles They also correctly list P15 full power seats. Based upon these items being correct, I think it's unlikely that the car ever had comfort seats(heated w/lumbar adj??) or walnut/alum shift knob. I'll put the car in the air and check for the transmission PN. If you have a chance, could you specify where to look? My old 944 had it at the very top and was almost impossible to see with the transaxle mounted in the car. Thanks again Loren. I'm very thankful for the time and effort you're putting into this website to help so many of us.
  3. Loren: Is there any way to check on the car itself for the existence of a LSD. My car is a little bit of a challenge. Some previous owner removed the option code sticker (there is still residue on the underside of the lid). I've had a dealer and PCNA both check their listing of option codes for my VIN and while most of the options they list DO match my car, they are not a perfect match. Their records show P72 which I think is a design package, tiptronic only (my car is a 6spd) My car clearly has Traction control, but no option 222 listed They also list X369, which I haven't been able to find listed anywhere. If I pay the $$'s to PCNA for a Certificate of Authenticity, does the information come from this same database, or is there any chance it is generated off another database which may be more accurate? Is there any way to check the car directly for a LSD? My standard check doesn't conform with previous experience with LSD OR Open Diff. (With both rear wheels in the air and the car in neutral, I can spin either rear wheel manually and the opposite wheel doesn't move at all.) Thanks for the feedback! Joe
  4. Loren and all: If I understand your note correctly, can one assume that ANY MY'99 C2 with TC would also have LSD? My recently purchased '99 does have TC. Jacked up the rear of the car to see if the rear wheels moved together as other cars I've had with LSD. When turning one wheel the other does not move at all. Thanks, Joe
