  1. Thanks for the advices! So the car can dump water by itself if there is air in the system?
  2. I had a radiator leak and changed the radiator on my MY97 Boxster. Now when I started the car and let it run for a few minutes and then turned it off I could see that water was coming from the engine somewhere around the passengers side rear tire. Has anyone ever experienced this before? Also, I accidentally put too much water in the system when I refilled the system. Could this have caused the problem?
  3. Has anyone used any aftermarket side skirts on a 996 C4S? If so, please upload photos. I´m in the process of getting a pair for my car.
  4. I like the techno wheels and thought about upgrading the wheels on my car to the Techno in black with a polished outer edge. When searching on Ebay I can only find 20" which I think can be a bit too much for my 996 C4S. Anyone who knows for sure?
  5. What are you going to do to the springs - cut them, rebend then and then adjust their length? Not likely. It is best to buy springs that are already made ("tuned") to the specs of your car. Remember this as you are taking a high speed turn at 100 plus MPH. Porsche tunes their suspensions for a reason - to make the cars fast and to try to keep you alive. Sorry for not being accurate in my question. What I meant was that if you could buy other springs like H&R to fit the 997 strut? Or maybe its better/more convenient to just buy H&R for my stock C4S struts...
  6. Is it possible to change the springs so they fit C4S? What springs would be best to choose?
  7. It sure looks nice! One question though, why does not a original wing from a Turbo fit the C4S?
  8. I have been thinking of putting a spoiler on my C4S but I´m afraid that it will look too much of a Turbo "look alike". Does anyone here have any experince in this? Maybe some pictures? Found this one on ebay; http://cgi.ebay.com/ebaymotors/PORSCHE-996-CARRERA-AERO-REAR-SPOILER-KIT-C4S-ONLY_W0QQitemZ170465206967QQcmdZViewItemQQptZMotors_Car_Truck_Parts_Accessories?hash=item27b084a2b7
  9. Thanks for the help! Does anyone have experience in converting to GT3 headers? Is it possible with or without modification?
  10. I need to replace a radiator on my MY97 Boxster but I cannot seem to find those round rubber mounts that will help the radiator to fit onto the radiator support. On Pelicanparts website I only find rubber mounts for the center radiator but will those work for the side ones as well?
  11. Just noticed that my mufflers has GEMBALLA stamped on them but I´m unsure about the rest of the exhaust. Can somebody tell? Sorry about the poor pic quality...
  12. Thanks for the pictures! It makes sense. I have to check my wheels to see what I have. I meant flat black, or matte black. They are powder coated from factory. Think that was an option when the car was new(Tequipment?).
