  1. Which version of ABS does the 99tt come with? Looking at the 996 companion it says that ABS 5.7 became standard in 2004 but I can't find model differentiation. Was the ABS software updated through the model life of the 99tt? If it is the 5.7 does that mean the PSM is V5?
  2. I've been doing some research to purchase an 04 996tt. I've noticed something that I have a question on. The regular 996tt exhaust tips appear to be oval in shape. On the 996tt with X50 the exhaust tips appear to have for the lack of better words a "two in one" type of exhaust tip. My question is does the X50 have different exhaust tips which have this "two in one" type of look? I know the exhaust is different but didn't know about the tips. If this isn't an X-50 issue then was this an option on the 996tt?
  3. So this past Saturday I went and test drove a June 2000 build date 996TT. I wanted to share my intial impressions compared to my current vehicle (2006 z4m roadster). First things first: • Yes I know one is a convertible and the other is a coupe Very big difference • Yes I know one is 6 years new than the other. • Yes I know the roadster weights less than the 996TT. • Yes I know the 996TT has much more HP and Torque than the BMW. My initial comparison will be about the mechanical aspects of the two vehicles. First of all I was surprised (shocked really) at how much of a difference e
  4. Loren, Thanks for the post. I guess I could of put one and one together! Anyway the book is a wonderful tool for those of us doing research at this stage. I'm going to look/drive an 01 996TT on Saturday!
  5. Thanks for the responses. It was very helpful. I did find out that from MY03 to 04 that updated ABS software was installed (among other very minor changes). I found this information out with my recent purchase of Porsche 996 The Essential Companion: Supreme Porsche (Amazon search for this and it will come up). TO THOSE OF YOU WHO HAVE NOT GOTTEN THIS BOOK GET IT NOW. It is 600 pages of pure goodness. It covers everything from model year changes to DIY to buying guide to upgrades (and much more). It is well worth the 65 bucks I paid for it. Just an FYI. Thanks again for the responses.
  6. Hello all, Well I have searched the 30 something pages and have come aross years past info but nothing new. I'm looking for exactly the differences between MY 03 and 04 996tt. I know for sure that PCM2 became standard on MY04. And yes I know to buy the most current I can. I'm just trying to pull all the information that I can. Can anyone help me out? Thanks.
