  1. Absolutely fantastic, make sure you buy the Kenwood iPod cable. The iPod will not work without the specific Kenwood cable. I have a Sirius tuner, PM me if your interested in how to negotiate pricing with Sirius. I got everything that they offer for $26 for 5 months.

    Bluetooth works well. Ground the brake wire and DVD's play while your moving as we'll as the ability to add a destination to the Nav while the car is moving. The HD radio is crystal clear with stations that send the album cover of the song you're listening to on the screen. I loaded custom POI's from POI Factory to alert me of red light and speed cameras nation wide with updates every Wednesday.

    All in all, the sound quality with 5 amp pre-outs is excellent. My 911 has all new speakers, a 300w amp for the front and rear and a 400w amp for the 8" Sub. I like my music and this head unit sounds fantastic. There are lot of really nice features in the Nav setup to monitor your driving, keep track of fuel usage, green driving etc.

  2. Thanks, mission accomplished. It works like a charm. The Kenwood DNX6990HD I added is amazing, HD FM Radio, iPod, Bluetooth, Sirius XM, Navigation By Garmin with traffic, Backup Camera, DVD Player...hacked to play while the car is moving and added a USB Hub and USB 32 Gig flash dive loaded with movies for the kids.

    I updated amps, sub and all speakers last year. This is by far an amazing system with an audio sound that is over the top.

  3. I added a 2DIN Kenwood system in the upper dash and moved the HVAC controls to the bottom spot of the lower console. Above it is the CD holder. Can I add these cupholders in the spot where the CD Holder is now?

  4. My car is a '99 Coupe.

    I've read a few posts, this being the best:

    http://www.renntech.org/forums/topic/26098-how-to-run-backup-camera-wiring/?hl=backup+camera

    Correct me if I'm wrong.

    From the camera in the rear there is a yellow RCA that has to get back to the head unit to plug in to the video in for the camera and also a positive and ground that both connect to the drivers side tail light reverse light connection.

    From the head unit there is one wire 12 volt trigger that must connect to a reverse trigger to automatically switch the screen when I put the car into reverse. Where does this wire connect, somewhere in the interior or back at the tail light?

    I am not sure how to get the yellow RCA from the engine compartment through the grommet mentioned in the link I posted above and then into the interior compartment.

    If any of you have done this please reply to this post with any tips that may help.

    Thanks

  5. You need a new key fob. They die and stop working. Buy a new one on eBay that is brand new and comes with the bar code tab. Take it to Porsche, they'll put your key into it and program it to your car. Do not buy one unless it has the bar code tab or it will be a waste of money. I bought a new one on eBay for $85.00 a few months ago, dealer charged me $65 to program it.

  6. As mentioned above the scratches/burns/lines will come out its easy. Use 1500 sand paper, cut pieces of the sand paper into small squares. let ir soak for 5 minutes in soapy water. Using circular motions lightly go over the entire headlight. Re-dip into the soapy water very often. Remember it's a WET sanding process. Continue until all scars are gone. Use a towel to dry it every now and then so you can evaluate how your doing. When everything that went wrong before is gone and they look nice and smooth and dull from the 1500 grid repeat the process with 2000 grid. I use Meguiars polishing compound to complete the process with a variable speed buffer than finish with whatever polish or wax you normally use on the paint by hand. I wax my 996 twice a month and always wax the front headlights and rear tail lights. They won't yellow at all if you keep waxing or polishing. Best of luck.... They're plastic and they will be fine.

  7. My advice, suck it up and have it sent to a Porsche Dealer. They are expensive but so far in my 15 years of driving 911's the fix everything right the first time. These cars are tricky, an inexperienced tech can change parts at will and you will go broke fast. It may cost you $500 to get it there if you're so far away or rent a U Haul and get it there your self.

    I've read hundreds of posts of guys changing this and that with no luck. Take it to a Porsche Dealership.
