  1. Hoping someone can help, we just picked up the wife a 2005 MY06 997.1 Carerra S with PCM 2.1B with Software Version 3 including Navigation and phone sim slot and we're trying to figure out definitively if it can it play MP3 cd's? I've searched and read the posts but I'm just more confused. I have the following unit info for the system and software and can post the Amp / CD Changer and Nav if required. PCM Target and Actual are: 05024AD1 / 0205 System Software Target and Actual are: 04364AD1 / 3604 Does anyone have a definitive answer if this unit can play burned MP3 cd's and if it is yes then a guide to what software you used to burn the mp3's and in what format; folders for albums or single files,and also any special way to close the cd burning process. Thank you in advance for any replies and info Cheers Al
  2. Thanks sws1 for the extra info on the RMS I had read that the issue was solved with the Series 2 996 cars but I guess its not and I'm glad I joined here to check on these things. Thanks adamr for the warm welcome and all the info. While I'll be new to owning a Porsche, I have been a member of the club here in Queensland, Australia for a number of years now as they have a great motor sport section with numerous track days throughout the year that I have taken advantage of and I also have a few friends in the club who encouraged me to join, one thing has lead to another and while looking for a new car we decided it was as good a time as any to look at a second hand 997 GT3. Again thank you both for all the info I have a great list of items to check on the prospective cars and it is giving both myself and my wife / navigator great piece of mind knowing what to look out for before deciding on one. Cheers Alastair
  3. http://www.gtpurelyporsche.com/pastissue.asp?issueID=17 ... this mag had a GT3 997 buyers guide ... does anyone have this article and would love as well if they can scan and post ... EDIT: i found it ... yay!!!!!!!!!!!!! http://www.gtpurelyporsche.com/downloadtra...File=997GT3.pdf. by the way regarding the RMS, the porsche tech replaced it with a 996TT seal, and so far no problem .... people mentioning it reduces HP by 5, i honestly cant see how a seal can do this ... Absolutely brilliant adamr, thank you so much for the link, this is exactly what I was looking for. So is the RMS a problem I should look out for on the 997 GT3 as well then or were you just unlucky with your car? Again thanks for the PDF it will help me to pick the right car. Cheers Alastair the RMS apparently was pretty common on a lot of GT3's RS included, so i have been told. My particular one used to leak one drop per week ... told the mech about the 996 seal, and he first looked at me stumped! i think he did his own homework and then just put in the 996TT seal Thanks again adamr the info is very much appreciated, I will make sure to ask if it has been replaced and will get an independent mechanic to look over any of the cars before I make a final decision on one. I also found some good info to make sure I check on any potential car in the 996 GT3 forum such as the number of type 1 and 2 over revs and a few other things to keep an eye on. I'm feeling a lot more confident about what to look out for now, this site has been a great help. Cheers Alastair

  5. Hi everyone, my first post here, after reading through all four pages of threads and using the search feature I have been unable to find anything pointing to a second hand buyers guide for the 997 GT3 and I am hoping I can get some pointers. I am looking at purchasing a second hand 997 GT3 in the near future if the right one can be found for me and I am interested in knowing if there is anything I should be looking out for in the cars maintenance records that has or hasn't been done or if there are any factory recalls / TSB's?? that I should be asking the the seller / dealer about. I have read a couple of the posts in this area about the Rear Main Seal leak and was surprised to read that it seems the issue has not been rectified as I thought it had only been a problem with the series 1 996 GT3 cars, is this still an issue that needs to be looked at with the 997 model? Any help pointing me to a buyers guide or general info on what to make sure I check any potential car for before purchase would be greatly appreciated, in all likelihood I will be purchasing a Porsche pre approved second hand car with warranty so hopefully if anything does go wrong it wont be an issue but being forewarned on what to check for may give me a bit more bargaining power. Thanks in advance for any help you can provide Cheers Alastair
