    964 rs rims

    :help: Hi there, I am trying to obtain the paint code for a 1992 964 RS rims. They are the original 5 spoke rims. Many thanks
  2. :cheers: Thank you all for your time and advice, much appreciated.
  3. Hi, I've contacted my local Porsche dealer with regards to using Dot 5 brake fluid in my 996 C4. DOT5 is silicon based. Silicon doesn't absorb water. It is used in racing vehicles and other high performance applications. The Porsche Centre have not recommended this and informed me they use only Dot 4. <_< Are Porsches not High Performance Vehicles, or do the centres just want to keep us coming back ?Have any of you used Dot 5 and what are your views on it ? If so have you any Dot 5 recommendations. Many thanks
  4. I've got a 997S cab on order (April build) and while I'm waiting I downloaded the manual and noted that there was no reference to being able to open the top with the door key as in the 996. Maybe it's been eliminated because now the rear windows also get raised when the top is lowered and Porsche is concerned about people getting their fingers mashed. Would be interesting to know if the ROW cars are the same. On the 996, the European cabs had a button on the key fob to allow remote opening of the top but the US cars did not, again because of liability concerns. <{POST_SNAPBACK}> :eek: the brochure says:"Electricaly powered, the hood is easy to open using a button on the centre console or the key remote. As the side windows descend, the hood box opens to recieve the folding hood". this is from a UK brochure.
  5. I think the 997 you drove may have been faulty <_< or UK spec is different, as the brochure says:"Electricaly powered, the hood is easy to open using a button on the centre console or the key remote. As the side windows descend, the hood box opens to recieve the folding hood". this is from a UK brochure.
  6. Starting System The starting system consists of an electric starter motor and a starter solenoid. When you turn the ignition key, the starter motor spins the engine a few revolutions so that the combustion process can start. It takes a powerful motor to spin a cold engine. The starter motor must overcome: All of the internal friction caused by the piston rings The compression pressure of any cylinder(s) that happens to be in the compression stroke The energy needed to open and close valves with the camshaft All of the "other" things directly attached to the engine, like the water pump, oil pump, alternator, etc. Because so much energy is needed and because a car uses a 12-volt electrical system, hundreds of amps of electricity must flow into the starter motor. The starter solenoid is essentially a large electronic switch that can handle that much current. When you turn the ignition key, it activates the solenoid to power the motor. :cursing: Sorry, sound like you need a new one!
  7. :eek: READ THIS BEFORE BUYING TYRES http://www.tirerack.com/tires/tiretech/general/porsche.jsp
  8. :drive: Yes, your NAV will operate in other countries, since all data is stored on the disc and the PCM uses SAT NAV(satalite navigation) so provided the correct disc is installed Europe is no problem. PCM in 997 uses DVD drive, so for the first time can provide constant navigation guidance within an entire continent. eg only 1 disc is required for western Europe.
  9. Try calling your Porsche Centre, PARTS Department then request sat nav discs. They will probably have them in stock. :o Or PCGB 01189303911
  10. They are definetly chrome if standard, unless the extra cost chrome-plated stainless steel tailpipes were specified on order, code X54. :thumbup:
  11. They are not manufacturd as extra cooling is not required. The discs are not drilled, which means dirt cannot penetrate when used off-road. <_<
