  1. I've read posts about polishing up the standard exhaust tips. Since the tips are just held on with 17mm bolts, I figured I try it before I ordered OEM stainless ones. Well, I just saved myself about $300. I used Flitz metal polish and the finest steel wool I could buy and hand rubbed each for about 15 minutes. They polished up to near mirror finish, almost as good as the factory ones. The whole project takes about an hour. Unfortunately, I can't upload the pics.
  2. I bought a set from Performance Products. I agree that they were less than perfect, although I installed them anyway. I liked the finish (bruched aluminum), but the the manufacturer did a poor job of cutting the ends of the trims - the edges were sharp and bent. They looked fine once they were installed and you don't notice the imperfections.
  3. Guys, I apoligize for these questions, but we do not have any sophisticated body shops up here in NH that deal in Porsches! I just purchased Aerokit II sideskirts from Champion and an '04 style GT3 front bumper on e-bay for my '03 Cab. I know the skirts go on quite easily, but I was wondering if you have instructions (PDF?) or photos for the installation of the skirts and bumper? The bumper comes with the lower black chin spoiler; however, the guy I bought it from says he does not have the nuts/bolts that attach it to the bumper. He says they are the same part as the clips that hold in
  4. Jeff, Thanks again. I just wanted to confirm that I ONLY need to remove the batwing and the side panels of the lower center console and NOT the storage tray and CD holder? The fewer parts the better! Thanks, Eric
  5. Pete, Thanks. One last question. When you removed the lower console, did you have to remove the storage bin/cd holder, or did the whole unit come out? Eric
  6. Jeff & Pete, Thanks for the tips. I ordered an aluminum look console today and should have it next week. Loren sent me a PDF of the removal/install instructions. The instructions show removing the lower console including the CD holder/storage bin. Pete, in your reply you say you removed if for "convenience." Jeff, your picture shows you only removed the side panels. Is it necessary to remove the entire console? I'd certainly prefer not to since several of the pieces are held by clips and they have a tendency to break! I'm definitely going to buy the right tools before attempt
  7. Loren, Thanks for the quick response. My Cab is an '03 model. :D Eric
  8. I'm considering ordering an alu-look or CF rear center console. My questions: 1. Is this a DIY project (I am reasonably handy)? 2. Do I need another person? 3. Do you have detailed instructions/photos? 4. Time frame? Thanks, Eric
  9. Don, Thanks for the info. How much do you charge for the lettering?!?! You have the patience of a saint for some of the mods you do! Eric
  10. I bought a set from Performance Products, but I know that they are back ordered. The guy said they may be in in a week or two.
  11. Loren, I have an '03 Cab and I can put the top up while moving. The other day I was in traffic and for the hell of it I pressed the button (no parking brake) and to my surprise the top started lowering. I was going no more than 5 mph. I did it again today; however, when I started going a little too fast (maybe 10 mph), a warning message came up in the display that I was exceeding the limits of the cabriolet top - so I slowed down and it worked fine. Is the top supposed to do this? Eric

  13. Darren, Kevin sent me an e-mail with an e-bay attachment listing new GT3 front bumpers. I contacted the guy (he's in Nashville) and he claims to import them from Germany from the company that manufactures them. Supposedly, they are factory rejects (paint problems) or sold "back door." The bumper is being shipped to me today or tomorrow. I paid $1,100 including shipping and the lower lip spoiler. The guy seems legit (he sells all sorts of OEM parts) and he has gotten positive comments on e-bay. Hopefully, I won't get screwed! As I said, I ordered 19" CarGraphics from ByDesign. I wa
  14. Don, Looks great! Considering your eye for detail, I would expect nothing less from you! ;) Eric
  15. Darren, I read your post about this. Thanks for the heads-up. I'm not dealing with very sophisticated body shops up here in NH, so the simpler the better. If it's not going to be easy, I'm not going to bother dealing with it. Eric
  16. I have an '03 cab and love the Carrera rear spoiler. The MASHAW is less than half the price of the OEM. I've heard good things about them. What are your opinions on them? They sell the spoiler with the wiring harness to disconnect the spoiler light. If I take the car to a bodyshop that has never removed the automatic spoiler, should I be concerned? Is it a difficult job? The MASHAW does not come with the cover for the existing third brake light. Is there such a part? Part number? TIA Eric
  17. Car looks great Don! My wife says you're costing me a lot of money! I just purchased an '03 A/S with G/G cab. Great color - easy to clean. I've already ordered 19" CarGraphics, aerokit II side skirts and an '04 GT3 front bumper cover. I love your rear spoiler. Is it OEM? Does the brake light in the boot cover get a plastic cover? TIA. Loren, best of luck with the new board. You're an amazing wealth of knowledge!
