  1. Well, I just received 'em today :) Part #s are: 996 111 981 03 (Left) 996 111 982 03 (Right)
  2. I did just that and it doesn't beep. And I hear ya on the fault warning. That's why I just plugged it back in and decided to live with the way the factory originally intended the system to be.
  3. First, if you just want to know how to get the beep; read the last sentence :) OK, I had some time last night to goof around and I decided to investigate the two wires. Basically, the harness consists of one wire: Orange/Brown and one wire: Brown. With a flat microscrewdriver, it is possible to disassemble the connector plug. it is numbered from 1 to 3 for the pin positions. Pin 1 is where the Orange/Brown wire is inserted. Pin 3 is where the Brown wire is inserted. Just at the rear of the connector, there's a plastic cap. with the screwdriver, you can pop this cap off. Be careful not the
  4. I just installed the Porsche short shifter last night. There is a harness (two wires) that leads to the rear console compartment lid switch. if you leave this wire unplugged, I believe that the alarm system will always "think" that the glove box is left open. that would trigger the beep from the alarm. This would obviously allow you to be able to keep the compartment lid closed at all times. of course, you'd have to remove the rear console to get to the harness but it's worth a shot if you intend on ever removing the rear console for the short shift install. it's worth a shot to try it out. wi
  5. Anyone have the part number for the Sport Exhaust Tips for a 996 C4S? Thanks!
  6. Correct me if I am wrong but droping the engine you have to do to get to the tuning pipe (infront of the throttlebody) and the rubber sleeves. I hope that my left sleeve has no connector so i can use the PSE connector /Magnus Yup, if the sleaves that are attached to the intake distributor both have nipples on them, you will have to resort to getting access to the sleeves from the tuning pipe. Apparently, the latter isn't such an easy task since there's no working room and hence requires the engine to be dropped. A solution to this is to merely bypass the whole step and use one of the exis
  7. Thanks Loren. I had heard that the PSE for the C4S were different b/c they required a longer pipe for the tips to fit. If that's not the case, then it must be the tips that have different part numbers for the C4S vs. the others?
  8. I've heard that the PSE for the C4S's were different altogether. If true then does anyone know the correct part number for the C4S? If false then, i'm assuming that any of the larger diameter bypass type PSEs would fit, no?
  9. Where in NJ are you? I've been contemplating the PSE as well. Would be great if i can hear it as well.
  10. Well, the real question is that there appears to be two types of gauge faces on the market. One type is the stick on type. Regardless of this bushing, the stick ons have large enough openings to fit around the buttons. I have these in hand so I know they will work with the buttons. OTOH, there is a direct replacement for the stock ones. Same type material and not a stick on. Therefore, it seems as though you will need to use the bushings b/c that is the only way these will stay mounted (unless you use double sided tape and I prefer to do a clean job). I don't have these particualr gauge face
  11. OK, I will need to use someone else's DIY instructions. Thanks to this person for giving such a great DIY. if you see the picture in the link, I am referring to the black plastic button (red and blue arrows): http://www.lotususa.com/Alex/996ColorGuage...ges/ppage12.htm I would really like to remove this piece. Hope this helps. BTW, car is an 02 996 C4S.
  12. Hello Folks. I just got some gauge faces and I got as far as removing the cluster, disassembling it and now i'm left with just the bare faces with the needles on them. I managed to remove one needle. However, it looks as though the faces are easy to just unclip at their edges but there is a black plastic center piece that holds the entire face onto the main body. looking at this piece makes me believe that it can be compressed underneath and just lifted out but after trying, it doesn't seem all that easy. Has anyone figured out what to do with this plastic piece? TIA!
