  1. A lot of the 40th anniv cars were heavily discounted when new, so definitely make sure the price reflects that. My guess would be it's not a great investment, but from your original post that wasn't what you were asking necessarily. I personally like the 40th for the following: 1.) The color is beautiful in person. Personally, I'd replace the wheels, though. Or trade them for the normal Carrera II wheels. 2.) The combination of LSD and X51, which includes oiling upgrades, makes the 40th a better track car, IMO, than the typical C2. When I had a C2 I considered upgrading to the 40th whe
  2. I don't know, "Kaboom" may be overstating it. What kind of tires do you run? I was able to see a slight drop in pressure on my C2 with MPSCs tracking out of Turn 1 at VIR *if* I didn't use the whole track on exit. I didn't see that effect with Corsas on that track. And other than some increased noise later, the engine seemed to be unaffected. If you are running slicks, it may be a bigger issue. I did notice that in Grand Am Cup they allow 996s to make mods to the oiling system, presumably because someone thought it was important at that level. But for the rest of us, I'm not sure that oil
  3. Craig, thank you! Devek ordered them for me. It's a very unnecessary, silly, thing but now that I know they exist, I want them! Only $8.50, by the way. Firoze
  4. I know, I know. It's a new (to me) car and I'm being really OCD. I plan to spend next weekend removing cosmoline. Give me a few months and I'll pull out the scissors and soldering iron. Loren, does that mean because it's a motorsport part I can't get it?
  5. Hi, I'm looking for the brake pads sensor jumper plugs referenced in an 03/03 TSB for the GT3: http://www.renntech.org/forums/index.php?a...ownloadv&id=604 The part number is 964 612 026 70 (jumper plug) I called two different dealerships and they say they can't order that part. I also called Porsche Motorsports and they reminded me they don't order parts for lowly street cars. :) So I'm wondering where can I find this part??? Thanks!
  6. Thanks, Chronos. I just realized you're local. If I get stuck, I may have to take you up on your offer to help swap out seats!
  7. Uh, ok, never mind. I realize I just answered my own question. Duh. So does anyone know what size this torx head is? So I can make sure I get an e-torx set that includes the right size.
  8. Chronos, can I ask you what type of bolts are holding the seat in? I got the plastic covers off, but I haven't seen that type of bolt before. It looks like the male end of a torx screwdriver. What type of socket did you use to remove it? Thanks.
  9. I'm looking at this item on ebay: http://cgi.ebay.com/ebaymotors/ws/eBayISAP...&category=33725 If I buy this, do I need to have the dealer activate the airbag defeat feature?
  10. My clutch pedal is squeaking again. The dealer lubed it and fixed it for 2-3 months last time, but it's not worth going there just for this. What lube can I use and where/how should I apply it? (This is an 03 996) Thanks!
  11. Cool. What sizes did you get?
  12. I just did it myself for the first time. It's really easy. The only tricky part is getting those pad sensors off without using too much force. And you might want a putty knife to help slide the pads off the noise suppressors especially in the rear.
  13. Well, I know a guy locally who has this and is very happy and it definitely not a plant. But he doesn't track the car or even do autox. I guess he does a little street drag once in a while. So it may work out fine for him, but I think I'll probably just save up for a GT3 or Turbo if/when my skills are up to that level (which they definitely aren't yet).
