  1. Mine were to the point of being soft like gummy bears so I 3D printed replacements. Here's the link to the file if anyone wants to print their own. Replacement Knobs for Becker CDR-220 Radio by BillRVC - Thingiverse WWW.THINGIVERSE.COM If the knobs on your Becker CDR-220 have become sticky this is an inexpensive way to replace them. Mine became so malleable I didn't even want to try any of the remedies that people suggest. Replacements were definitely in order in my case. Factory originals...
  2. 2000 C2 Tiptronic, Factory HiFi option CDR-220 I figure this is a long shot but does anyone know what could cause this? This has happened a few times in the last month and twice this week. The radio is playing (FM) and emits 5 loud beeps, then powers off. Sometimes it comes back on if I press the "On" button. Sometimes it might take a few minutes before it responds to that button. I checked the CDR-220 owners manual but there is no information on the beeps. Solution: Remove the faceplate and clean the contacts on the faceplate and on the radio with rubbing alcohol or electronics cleaner. Snap the faceplate back in securely.
  3. It' a touch of old school and not to everyone's taste. It looks better in person. As far as better options for hounds tooth fabric, I think I checked every website there is. I'm thinking about doing the horseshoe as that's starting to look a bit tired, but I might just replace it with an unpainted black version that some years used. I'm tired of touching these pieces up.
  4. I'm looking to replace the metal clip that attaches to the airbox and holds the oil filler tube in place. I've tried searching for it and the crude illustrations on the parts sites don't look correct. Plus they say they don't fit my car. Is there really a difference between 2000 and 2001 airboxes? I think I found it, I'll see when it arrives.

  5. I took my ashtray to Home Depot and had it color matched in a latex enamel. I don't remember if it was satin or semigloss. It worked well. Then I painted it in silver PlastiDip and that looked good for a little while. Eventually I got tired of touching it up and covered it in fabric.
  6. I designed a cup holder for use in a 996/986 with the ashtray delete mod. The files are available on Thingiverse (free). I also have files for the little plastic disks that cover the rear attachment points for the hardtop on a cabriolet, and seem to vanish every now and then. The cup holder is in two parts. The bottom screws into the existing holes in the ashtray delete, using the existing screws. The top part narrows the opening a bit so that a can or bottle won't move around. It's easily reversible - just remove the two screws, pull out the cup holder, replace the screws. Designs - About BillRVC - Thingiverse WWW.THINGIVERSE.COM
  7. Get a cheap Bluetooth or WiFi ODB-II reader and an app on your phone like DashCommand or Torque. They can display the engine compartment temps and much more in real-time. I have the iCar II from Vgate. I think it was about $30, which is more than some. What I like about it is that it turns on and off automatically so you can leave it plugged in without worrying about draining your battery. I have the WiFi version which works with iPhone. The bluetooth version works with Android. I'm not sure if those restrictions still apply. I have the DashCommand app but a lot of people like Torque.
  8. From what I've read, replacing the entire top (including frame) is a job for the pros.
  9. Even if it can be rebuilt, it will probably be cheaper to put a used engine in it. Of course that could be a crap shoot too.
  10. I don't really understand the question. There are several choices as far as fabric and window type that will fit your car.
  11. I bought a bluetooth device for my CDR-220 from CAI. They provided the exact connections to make it completely plug&play.
  12. You can test whether the fan is working if you have a Durametric.
  13. Likely not Porsche OEM but they are nice looking. Congratulations on the car!
  14. Mine all bit the dust around the same time and I replaced them with cheap Chinese knockoffs. They're not nearly as good but from a few feet away it's hard to tell the difference. If you didn't lose the crests, I would re-glue them. I think the originals are something like $60 each.
