I have a 2002 Carrera Cab. I found a hard top on ebay which came off a 1999 911. The seller (a Porsche dealer in NJ) said it should fit any 996 from 1999 to 2006. Before buying, I double checked with my local dealer, who also said the lid would fit my car. I attempted to put the lid on the car last night but failed. I didn't try too hard, fearing the damage I would cause if it was the wrong lid. Can you guys tell from the attached pictures if this is the correct latch assembly? Thanks.

When I'm alone in the car, I do use the outer ring and it works fine. The problem is when my wife is with me, and we both have a drink. Then one of us needs to use the inner ring, which is too big. Kbull88 - If the Dunkin Donuts cup doesn't work, I'll give this a try. Thanks again for the quick ideas.
Last week I traded my '02 Boxster for an '02 911 Carrera. Sadly, I didn't test the drink holders in the 911 before I bought it. My first trip to Starbuck's was disappointing. As you can see in the picture, the venti drink leans badly in the drink holder. When I'm alone, it's not an issue because I can use the outer drink ring. When my wife is with me, it's an issue. Has anyone solved this problem? Have the holders improved since '02 such that I could just buy a new unit and swap it out? Any suggestions would be much appreciated. Thanks.
Two weeks ago I also cracked the rear window in my Boxster. It was 48 degrees. The local Porsche shop agreed it shouldn't have cracked, so they replaced it under warranty. Since this seems like a recurring problem with the Boxsters, I checked pricing. Full top replacement through my dealer is $3500. Window only replacement through a local upholstery shop is $800.
