Any particular reason for this???? I agree that after having driven hard the Turbos need to cool down before turning off the engine but after a "normal" drive as well?? The PAG manual does not seem to formally recommend this way of handling either!?
:help: I'm currently looking to buy a set of rims to put racing tires on my 996 '01 Turbo. I could strike a deal to buy 4 Cargraphic Racing rims in the sizes: Front: 9.5 * 18 ET 62 Rear: 12 * 18 ET 28 My regular Porsche AG 18" measure as follows: Front: 8 * 18 ET 50 Rear: 11 * 18 ET 45 Can I fit the Cargraphic's on my Turbo without any problem. I do NOT want to have to fit spacers or other adapters. Thanks for any advise :lightbulb:

I have recently exchanged my 996 Carrera 2 for an '00 Biturbo, Lapis Blue with black interior. I have it since 2 weeks now. It spent 5 years in Switzerland with a single owner. Considering it's excellent condition (21.000 km and still it's 4 original tires) I suspect it mainly travelled from Golfcourt to Casino. Obviously I'm still discovering the car but right now it's already a GRAND experience :beer: ! It's got nothing do do with a "regular" 911. Accelerations are simply mind-boggling. Brutal yet extremely linear. The engine's got massive torque so early (560 Nm @ 2700 rpm). Roadhandling is just perfect. I still have to get used to the 4WD but it handles very secure. This car makes speed so easy, maybe too easy.... :eek:
I take it that you mean "resonance". I had some resonance in the 2700 - 3000 rpm range on my 996 C Fabspeed mufflers. Just bought a 996 TT and would possibly consider upgrading the exhaust later on. Europipe (www.europipe.be) close to my place here in Belgium seems to offer very nice gear for TT's as well.
Well I tried to install my new door seal but it's not as easy as it looks. As indicated in Loren's message above, first one has to remove the door panel. In order to do this I tried to follow the Renntech "Door panel removal / Install instructions" but could not remove the door panel to gain access to the holding clip :angry: . The scheme of the "Door panel removal / Install instructions" is not really crystal clear if you are not used to doing these things. I preferred not to risk doing anything wrong so I quit and decided to have it done by a professional. Meanwhile however, I sold my car and returned the seal to the dealership. :jump: In a few weeks I'll have my 996 TT :cheers: More news coming up soon.
That's grand Loren :clapping: Thank you very much. I'll order the part asap and try to fit it myself next week.
No one did this before??? :( :unsure:
The one shown above has been sold meanwhile. Not to me. <_< I'm still waiting because I'm considering an MkII as well. They are becoming more affordable right now, especially in neighbouring Germany. Moreover, I'm trying to sell my C2 right now. I'll keep you posted.
the one at the bottom of the window :)
On my '99 996 C2 I would like to replace the horizontal rubber joint between the window and the door on the outside of the passenger's door. I guess the previous owner must have taken it off for one reason or the other and has not put it back in a proper manner. Due to this instead of being nicely stretched there are bumps in the joint which you notice especially when looking in the rear mirror from the passenger's seat. There's no infiltration of water or anything like it. The problem is purely esthetical. (I could add a photo later on today). Did anyone do this before? Is it an easy DIY? Any special tools required or instructions to follow? Thanks in advance? Philippe
