  1. I replaced my key head recently with the 911 Key Head. Big difference. The 997 key head will NOT fit.
  2. YOU are right!! my bad. MOST came 2003+ BTW swap out is possible - just a tiny bit more expensive.
  3. I would go with number 2. If you have MOST fibre optic wiring which came in 2004, it's a little more complicated but people have done it. If you don't have MOST (pre 2004) then it's very easy. Just buy the Eurospeed double DIN kit on ebay and you're all set. Do a search on this forum. The OBC will continue to work fine.
  4. also check if the car has a robotop or smarttop installed that is perhaps malfunctioning
  5. I've only heard of one other person on the interweb having this same issue was never solved...
  6. That will be an awesome, epic drive. Make sure to take pics!. Anyway here's a good trip checklist: 1. Check all fluids and top off - don't forget windshield washer fluid good to -15F 2. Check air pressure in tires 3. Bring along a tire plug patch kit - you never know where you'll be - I've found it invaluable and faster than waiting for a tow truck. 4. Make sure your portable aircompressor works 5. I hope you have AT LEAST all season tires if not winter tires. North of VA/ DC area it will get cold and your summer tires will become hockey pucks with very little traction. All seasons will help. You can get reasonably inexpensive Continental DWS or if price is no object go with Michelin A/S 3 (I track my car with Michelin A/S 3 - they're that good) 6. Download the app WAZE from either google or appstore. It's the best navigation app out there with realtime data - and it's free - and tells you where cops are too. Drive safe!
  7. Just monitor air pressure regularly to ensure there's no leakage from the bent sections
  8. Awesome news! Enjoy the best performing, most stylish ride on the Turnpike and 93 this winter! You'll get plenty of stares from commuters wondering what a Porsche is doing on the winter streets because the general public thinks it's some sort of exotic summer weekend car only. BTW: I have found adding some weight in the front trunk helps with steering in heavy snow/ice conditions. Because all the weight of the car is in the rear, the front tends to be too light sometimes to bite down...
  9. Good luck! Btw I have no idea why the vredestein video above has a woman in a bikini and then getting a massage - wth does that have to do with winter tires -lolAlso the vredesteins are W rated - good for up to 168mph. No floaty feeling in the dry ;)
  10. I got mine from direct tire - they have a location by the natick mall as well as Watertown with free loaner cars and drop off pickups No affiliation with them but if you go there you will see why so many high end car owners go there - it's spic and span and they have all the latest mounting and balancing equipment to avoid scratches - they hand torque lugs - try giving them a call 508 655-4455 - and just tell them the tire size you're looking for and then tell them tire rack is selling it for 20 percent cheaper than whatever quote they give you I just did a search online and found http://www.tiresbyweb.com/ have the exact sizes you need in the vredestein wintrac xtreme. Get a quote from them and try to get tire rack to price match - Btw some info / demo on these tires
  11. Even with a C2 - the Psm relies on having the right traction on all four corners - now couple that with the fact that the original poster has AWD - and New England winter weather - I would never mix match tires
  12.

  13. I wouldn't do it. Why not get Vredestein Xtreme Wintrac? Plenty of inventory and very affordable. Used very extensively in Europe
  14. Loren, Could you please tell me which test I can run with the Durametric and what I should be looking for? I ran everything I saw that looked remotely linked to the fuel system. Biggest challenge is I'm not familiar with what I should be looking for to detect a leak. I would take it to your local Porsche shop and tell them that you've replaced the gas cap but you suspect a leak in the fuel tank ventilation system. If they have a PIWIS they can do a leakage test and pinpoint the problem - a frequent culprit is the fuel tank ventilation system which If you are a DIY person read this: http://www.pelicanparts.com/techarticles/Porsche-996-997-Carrera/106-FUEL-Replacing_Your_Fuel_Line_Vent_Valve/106-FUEL-Replacing_Your_Fuel_Line_Vent_Valve.htm
  15. Hi, I live in Metrowest, work in Boston and do the commute on Mass Pike every day - rain, sun, snow. Makes the commute really worthwhile - listening to the engine. Anyway - you don't need to buy N rated Porsche snow tires. ANY snow tire of the right size will do. I went with Vredestein Wintertrac Xtreme for my dedicated winter setup with 18" wheels. It takes me 30 mins to do a switch over in my driveway. I went to my local Direct Tire - and they price matched internet pricing for the Vredestein - but again - ANY WINTER TIRE that's the correct size will get you to the office and home on our roads. You're really splitting hairs in terms of performance between different tires. For 2001 C4: 18" Recommended Front:225/40-18 18" Recommended Rear:265/35-18
  16. I switched last winter to Vredestein Xtreme Trac - excellent in dry cold weather, and great in snow/ice.
