  1. Reference leather replacement seat covers Recommend Lseat..com they make leather replacement seat covers for 986 and 996 Porsches. I think the going rate for the seat covers is $300.00 whether it is for a sport seat, a regular perforated seat or a supple leather seat cover. And they do piping as well as two-tone colors. Just my two-cents I plan on replacing my Natural leather front seats with supple leather front seat covers. MNX=C-i

    I assume this is how I PM you.

    Are you selling your Porsche Roof Transport System?

    Attached is a picture of my 2000 Millennium Edition 911 that is now my daily driver.

  3. I’ve done my research looking for an inexpensive roof rack system. I just cannot bring myself to purchase a Porsche roof transport system for what they want. From my experience you have to do your own research. I checked with the official Thule, Rhino, Yakima, rackwarehouse, Amazon sites, and no one really took the time to help out. So I found a Rhino Rack Camper Shell Roof Rack (54 inch wide) at AutoAnything for $328.00. I wll have to, I guess, spring for the Porsche spungy paint protectors called foam gaskets. I plan on using the bars to carry a road bike. In the nine (9) years I’ve had my 9
  4. Loren, Thanks for the quick response. If I understand you correctly: a) I should change my plugs every 60,000 km: b) I should use Beru plugs FRG-6-KQU (FGR-6-KQE are Bosch) c) Am I correct to assume Porsche updated the MK1 maintenance schedule since 1998? Thanks MNC-I
  5. I am confused about spark plugs. Background: I own a 99 Boxster with over 312,000 miles and I’ve been religiously changing my spark plugs every 30,000 miles. I use Bosch 4503 Iridium plugs. I've had no problems and I am very satisfied. I picked up a 2000 Millennium Edition 911 two years ago. My dealer has records showing the car went in for a water leak and came out with a new engine under warranty at 55,000 miles. The dealer who has serviced it since day one tells me there are about 41,000 miles on the current plugs. The 911 has about 119,000 miles on it now (I put on 10,000 miles).
  6. Ioch55, I believe your Boxster is suffering from worn out rubber washers. It can easily be rectified using #31 O-rings purchased at a Home Depot's plumbing department. You can also view a YouTube video that goes into detail on how to replace the old washers with the #31 O-rings. I recently fixed my horn using the #31 O-rings in less than 30 minutes while parked in my driveway. Here is a link from the 986 Forum addressing the issue: http://986forum.com/forums/performance-technical-chat/66881-anyone-done-31-o-ring-horn-fix.html This is the link to the YouTube video:
  7. KeithBeniot, I have a 2000 Carerra 4 with the six-speed. To prevent going into Reverse when I want First gear, I've recognized that for me & my seating position Reverse is when the gear shifter knob looks to be in front of the left screen of the HVAC control. First gear is when the R on the gear shifter knob lines up with the frame between the left & right screen. Just my two-cents. MNC-I
  8. royp4, I had a four-wheel alignment executed on my 2000 Millennium Edition (C4) last month at my dealer in Plano, TX. It took about two hours and the total cost was $268.02. That cost included (Labor - $209.95, Misc - $55.47, Sales Tax - $2.60). Part of the Miscellaneous cost was the cost to fill the fuel tank prior to the alignment. I also received a detailed sheet outlining the Camber, Caster, Toe, SAI, Included Angle for the front left and right to include Actual readings and Before readings. In addition readings for front Cross Camber, Cross Caster, Cros
  9. Emperorphobos, There are several ways to identify a Millennium Edition: 1) It is a one year only 2000 model 2) It has special paint that looks green, purple and black depending on the angle of the sun reflecting off the car 3) It has a dash plaque that tells you what number car it is (Porsche only made 911 of them) 4) It should have just about every option available for 2000 (the only option code on my hood sticker is the Millennium Edition code) 5) They all have a natural full leather interior 6) Instead of Carrera on the engine cover, there is a chro
  10. Xena, My Millennium Edition is #602. I picked it up in March 2016. The guy I purchased it from had flaking on his two rear wheels. He was a spare no expense type guy and had the dealer in Plano replace the wheels with remanufactured wheels at a cost of $2000 for the wheels alone. He did get a $200 parts discount and a $10.00 labor discount. I have never been a fan of factory OEM chrome wheels on any car, but these have grown on me. I've made it a point to only use mild soap and water on my wheels. You can always get a set of after-market wheels or used Porsche wheels
  11. I have used them on my 99 Boxster. They have been great. I've also the HTR IIs. I have Michelin Pilot Super Sports on my 2000 911. Once these wear out I am going to HTR IIs or HTR IIIs. Just my two cents MNC-I
  12. I've got a 99 Boxster that I purchase in Sep 09, for $8700 with 104,000 miles. I currently just over 267,000 miles. I do most of my own maintenance within reason (oil & filter changes, brakes{pads & rotors}, spark plugs & serpentine belt). I used either Mobil 1 10W40 High mileage/15W50 or Royal Purple 20W50 and I change it every 10,000 miles. I forget how many water pumps I've gone thru, but then again the 986/996 water pumps are no way as dependable as a water pump for a chevy small block 350. I've gone thru at least three (3) AOSs. During the last AOS change,
  13. Check out RockAuto for O2 sensors. When I changed out all my O2 sensors, I paid RockAuto about $84.00 each for Bosch #13806 sensors. Currently RockAuto has those same senors for $75.79 each. Just my two cents.
  14. Jokifun, You are absolutely correct. Pelican parts listed two brake light switches for the 1997-2004 Boxster a) 996-613-113-02-M100 (genuine Porsche) for $22.00 b) 996-613-113-02-M85 for $10.75 So I went with the cheaper part, which was the wrong answer. MNC-I
  15. On my 1999 Boxster the brake lights do not work unless the ignition is on. I ordered a replacement brake switch when I had trouble shifting out of park (shift lever button would not go down when I pressed it). I new switch I ordered from Pelican Parts was about $10.75 U.S. It was slightly different is size and looks. With the new switch in my brake lights would not go off. I went back and ordered the OEM switch from Pelican Parts (approximately $22.00 U.S.). My brake lights work perfectly, but I still have issues shifting out of park. I depress the shift button on the lever as I turn the
