  1. Anyone happen to know the colour code/ paint code for the new 997 cream White colour? Thanks CG
  2. Dunno about the US but in Asia it seems that the 996 is a fast depreciating asset to have even gt2 and 3s are dropping fast in prices with the launch of every new 997 But them 964s and 993s are holding their value very well some are even appreciating An m/t 964 is now worth about as much as a 996 early model!
  3. Outside temp problem likely to have been caused by front bumper removal. Mine gave up the ghost when my car had a full respray after an accident Cg
  4. Funny that my car has the exact same two problems my outside oil temp sensor is working intermittently and my oil pressure guage jumps from zero to 5 and back sometimes. Outside temp sensor don't seem to effect my cars performance nor the a/c in my car hope this helps : )

    Reset Cel

    Hi all I got a cel yesterday after the oil pressure sender went nuts and showed no oil pressure for about 5 seconds. Can I reset this without any diagnostics equipment? Thanks cg
  7. Hi Loren I have a cdr23 and the shop says I need the security code before I can install a replacement can u help retrieve the security code? alternatively I'll have to go to the dealers and pay for it : ) thanks cg
  8. Hello any one know the part number for the mkii gt3 oil pressure sender? Is it the same for lhd and rhd vehicles? Thanks Cg
  9. Situation persisted last night with the oil pressure guage reading zero suddenly Most proabably due to bad sender, will get that changed out anyone know the part number for the oil pressure sender? Thanks cg
  10. Had a somewhat similar experience. Caused by a faulty ignition barel in my case the barrel allowed me to turn the key one click beyond the normal position and most ancillary power functions were disabled including headlights and caused intermittent failure to start. Hope this helps! And best of luck trying to get it sorted!
  11. Heard the factory is running a standard 997 gt3 rs mkii used as a development test car any idea on that car's time compared to the race cars? Thanks cg
  12. Sorry for not thanking you guys on a timely basis for the advise seems problem has not presisted and car is running fine with good oil pressure and level local Porsche specialist say likely a faulty sensor rather than other reasons as the car has been standing for a week and the local weather had just turned quite humid he did concur that the car shall not be driven once the dash light comes on as well thanks all cg
  13. Dear all engine oil failure indicator came on twice while driving home today I stopped the car and did the measurement with the trip computer which indicated engine oil on the max level any ideas? Thanks cg
  14. I am on a set of re050as which are pretty good in the dry bar the tyre dusts problem ok in the wet but seem to be at it's absolute poorest when they are cold and the roads are slightly wet I have heard the yokohamas ad08 are very good too The yokohamas a048 which I used to run on my evo were excellend as a track tyre but as they have only a small groove they do aquaplane in the wet the newest model from yokoha is the a050 which are the closest thing to race spec tyres. Available in hard medium hard, medium, soft and super soft compounds Cg
  15. Hi clord last time the car was on a ramp there were no signs of oil leaks, the sound is definately from the rear axle/engine at very low speeds going uphill the car is absolutely fine at speed... Actually having consulted with some local gt3 owners it seems the rhd vehicles are not prone to rms problems for some reason but most of the local cars are rs models, perhaps we do have a milder climate out here. The sound is a clucking noise and other than that the car runs fine thanks cg
  16. Dear all, any idea whether the rms and ims problem is less prone to occur on mk ii gt3 engines? I have noticed a low speed knocking sound especially going up and down steeper hills at low speed and am wondering whether I should be concerned. My car had just been serviced with all engine and g'box mounts replaced Any ideas? Thanks cg
  17. Hi Can I ask how much this is and where I can get one shipped to an international destination? Also will the supplied software work with a mk2 gt3? Thanks cg
  18. any one j iw if there is a similar function for mkii 996s? Thanks
  19. I am suprise to see the close prices of re050 and re11s in the states I am running bs re050as on my gt3 which are relatively grippy but takes a little time to get to temp and is not very good in slightly wet conditions they also tend to produce a fair amour of tyre dust so not ideal if you have a light coloured car. I have used ad08s from y'hama on my evo before and they worked wonders there, but I'd go for a set if Y'hama A048 or A050s if they are available in the US. You will not e disappointed with these Japanese racing compound tyres!!
  20. My gt3 has been in the family for some time but it's only after an recent accident and full repair job thy I have started to use it and take more notice to it. Anyways the car is sometimes parked under a tree outside so I'll probably insert some plastic mesh like the front grill stuff there using some epoxy adhesive thanks all for the reassurance!! Cg
  21. I just did an rear update that resembles the 997 gt3 rear assembly for the 996 do email me if you want some pics my email is orangetabbycat@ymail.com
  22. Ok I might just be thinking too much then! Should I place a grill there to stop things alling inside the two holes?
  23. Hi chord I haven't notice any adverse performance in the ac unit in regulating temperature even when the sensor display shows nothing ...seems the sensor wads damaged during the respray and needs to be replaced as the wires are all plugged in well : (
  24. Hi all I noticed that on my decklid wing of my mkii gt3 is musing the mesh grill as I had a full respray last month. The paint shop may have lost the piece any one know the replacement part number or can I just tach on some mesh to stop leaves falling into the intake Thanks cg
  25. Hi all I am wondering if there are any ways to remove the cdr23 unit without the removal tools and whether a new headunit from Sony or alpine can just plug straight in ?? Thanks cg
