  1. 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.
  2. 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.
  3. 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.
  4. From what I've read, replacing the entire top (including frame) is a job for the pros.
  5. 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.
  6. I don't really understand the question. There are several choices as far as fabric and window type that will fit your car.
  7. I bought a bluetooth device for my CDR-220 from CAI. They provided the exact connections to make it completely plug&play.
  8. You can test whether the fan is working if you have a Durametric.
  9. Likely not Porsche OEM but they are nice looking. Congratulations on the car!
  10. 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.
  11. That's not something I've ever heard or read (about Tiptronics). Regarding the $5k quote, that's likely for the IMS Solution, which is the one that never needs to be replaced.
  12. If the replacement IMSB is one manufactured by LN Engineering, you may be able to verify it on LNE's website. They have a database of replacements. But, if you don't find it in their database, it doesn't mean it wasn't done. Many early replacements weren't logged and newer replacements are only logged if the shop doing the work follows through after the installation.
  13. The labor involved in just replacing the window is a bit more than replacing the whole top because in both cases the old top must be removed. Plus you can't fit a glass window that is the same size as the plastic. I would replace the top with a Gahh A-5 German canvas top (OEM). You can chose between plastic or glass(more money) for the window . I went for the plastic window because it looks more like the lines of the coupe. The glass window is significantly smaller. It's a personal choice.
  14. MY2000 C2 Tiptronic, stock intake. Probably the original MAF I have a few questions regarding codes that I found while using a Durametric., 1. I see a P1671 Porsche fault code 407 - Control unit faulty Signal implausible. Last year I forgot to reattach the MAF connector after doing some maintenance. I got a CEL for ABS and PSM and quickly found and corrected the problem. Could this be related to that event? 2. Tiptronic codes - 3 years ago I brought my car to a transmission shop recommended by my trusted Indy because I felt a bit of slipping in
