  1. ...thank you but I'm not getting the ET...mine is 58 - 11mm more than yours...so surely 23mm would put me back where yours is?
  2. My aim: 1) Good clear distortion-free sound across the entire spectrum that's easy to listen to and appreciate with the roof down at 85mph. 2) Enough future-proof connectivity options and full integration of iphone/sat nav handsfree etc. 3) Keep everything looking as if Porsche had installed it themselves. Simple really :) I'll tackle point 2 first. I'm about to upgrade the Stereo a Pioneer AVIC double DIN all-singing all dancing unit and have bought a mounting kit made in the 'states that should integrate it perfectly into the dash. I've managed to track down a 'no smoking' hole-fil
  3. Hi all After spending hours with various offset calculators I'm almost there, but would really like someone's advice, who's done it: I've just bought a set of Carrera III alloys: Fronts: 8J x 18 ET 57 Rears: 10J x18 ET58 My current Turbo twists are: Fronts: 7.5J x 18 ET50 Rears: 9J x 18 ET52 The car is a 2001 Boxster 986 3.2S What I'm trying to work out is the size of Spacer required at the back - I currently have a 22mm and whilst it easily clears the strut, the tyre does stick out of the arch slightly. The research I've done suggests a 15mm or an 18 mm spacer will be perf
  4. Thanks - I looked at the Kumho because the R888's are out of stock. The only thing I could get were Hankook R-S2's which I've used before, as the V70's were out too. Then they ring me back and say I can have 3 tyres :) So now I'm stuck with a decent road tyre rather than a track-oriented option. An instructor said he'd heard good things about Vredestein Sessantas - in the option 2 sizing, they work out at £250 as opposed to £850 for the R888's (remember we also pay $8 a gallon :) ) so I'll give them a go
  5. Hi - I need to get some tyres for a weekend at the Nurburgring and Spa this weekend and have just been told that my preferred tyres are out of stock in the standard sizes. I'm running a pair of 987 17's (6.5's and 8.5's IIRC) and was going for a pair of 205/50's and 255/40'17's. I've been offered the following: Option 1: 215/45/17 & 235/45/17 Option 2: 225/45/17 & 245/40/17 My only concerns are: will a 235 be too narrow for the rear - and will a 225 be too wide for the front? I need to do something today, so any help appreciated.
  6. The rear trunk has an engine in the way and the front trunk has a gas tank. I wouldn't be surprised if these bulkheads were also ever so slightly structural. The most common areas for subs are the rear shelf, passenger footwell and under the seats
  7. Hey Albert - Just to say, after a panic at the post office, the door builds arrived on Saturday. Superb quality and surprisingly light. I'll spray the insides with Dyna shield before adding wadding and coat the back with Dynamat Xtreme. Thank you again for your effort - I am really pleased with them :)
  8. Thank you Loren - this'll be the same I take it without the DSP? Cheers
  9. Apologies, I've searched, but haven't got very far. I'm looking to extend the speaker cables for the factory 4-channel amp to the floor area and am trying to find a diagram outlining what all the colour codes are on the two plugs going into the amp. Any help appreciated. It's non-Bose, non-fibre optic.
  10. Something here? http://www.google.com/products?q=defroster+tab+repair+kit&lnk=qsugb
