dominic, sorry to hear and see. probably somebody texting. it has gotten out of control. can't help you much re: what insurance will do/not do for you. Just hope it gets done to YOUR satisfaction. Be vigilant. Any Renntechers that can help our friend?
biopsea replied to jaekormtb's topic in 996 Series (Carrera, Carrera 4, Carrera 4S, Targa)impressive. congrats on driving the @#$% of it. hope she gives you many, many more miles/smiles.
JFP - as always, your information is helpful and spot-on. Was wondering if you could clear something up for me. I can't remember where I read it, and what the rational was, but the article/blog post etc mentioned using the passenger footwell outlet rather than the cigarette lighter. definitely not as convenient. Could there be a valid reason for this?
biopsea replied to 0356kid's topic in 997-1 Series (Carrera, Carrera 4, Carrera 2S, Carrera 4S)OEM replacements are available on any number of sites. forget which ones support this site but best to use those companies. pelican has OEM replacements (whole assembly) for 47 USD and suncoast for 42 USD.
biopsea replied to dporto's topic in 996 Series (Carrera, Carrera 4, Carrera 4S, Targa)congrats and enjoy!
biopsea replied to martadon's topic in 997-1 Series (Carrera, Carrera 4, Carrera 2S, Carrera 4S)HAH. funny, and a bit scary. can't remember where i read about these sensors. anybody with any first hand knowledge?
biopsea replied to griss's topic in 997-1 Series (Carrera, Carrera 4, Carrera 2S, Carrera 4S)sorry to hear about your recent loss. hope you get her fixed or a new and improved replacement soon!!!!
biopsea replied to martadon's topic in 997-1 Series (Carrera, Carrera 4, Carrera 2S, Carrera 4S)my 2007 911 S's TPMS finally gave up the ghost. from what I've read, 7 years seems to be about the max. anyhow, after doing some research, i purchased the product pictured below. anybody familiar with these? have not installed as waiting till i put new rubber on. definitely much cheaper, but wanting to hear from others prior to installation.
biopsea replied to hunteje's topic in 996 Series (Carrera, Carrera 4, Carrera 4S, Targa)I was advised that walmart carries a great battery for a great price. I ended up buying one for my truck and one for my 997 s. been a few years and so far so good. Ever Start Maxx.
Looks great. what a stable!
heck - i've been dying to take a long road trip in my 07 S. a shame you cant do all the driving and photo shoot in same couple days. here is a picture. i think she is very photogenic. 21k miles. arctic silver with terra-cotta and black deviating dash.
biopsea replied to valfam's topic in 996 Series (Carrera, Carrera 4, Carrera 4S, Targa)Yes Suncoast seems to sell parts at or very near cost; and their service is always top notch. glad i could help.
Hi gang, I have decided to start putting some time and money into my '77 Carrera 3.0 Car is in great shape and runs as she is. However, its' heart was removed/replaced prior to my ownership. It currently houses a 2.7 that is a bit tired but still serviceable. My goal is to find a euro Carrera 3.0 block so i can keep car as original as possible. Have been looking for quite a while and only ever see them come up for sale in Europe and Australia. I am not opposed to buying another vehicle with the proper engine and then making the best out of 2 cars. But needless to say, i would prefer to buy just the engine. Any advice would be greatly appreciated. I am not going to put good money into the old 2.7, so if a 930/02 is simply unavailable, i will source a later 3.0 or 3.2 and create a perfect, clean, reliable car to enjoy for many years to come. Below are my two girls ;-)
