  1. 2nd Thursday every month HUGE Porsche meetup.
  2. I bought a LCD replacment screen from Vertex auto and installed it myself.using the online instructions and watching a similar video. It took less than 20 minutes and while the images are a little different now it works better ( when I had directed air-to-air blow down or at passengers I would get small to windshield and it would fog up. Not anymore. ) I've attached before and after photos
  3. I have the Bose Nav double din system. Would it be mostly a remove old unit and install new or aprox what will it entail to install PCCM+?
  4. Keep the car. It looks like the 996 and 996 Turbo values have reached bottom last year and are appreciating at a nice pace. There are a few examples I found this past weekend from $60,000 to $78,000 and one admittedly redicilous example asking $99,000 but thats HUGE compared to 2 years ago when a clean carfax 6 speed could be picked up occasionally for $35,000 to $45,000
  5. Perhaps but SD slot is in back so it's awkward to switch it out. I think better possibility may be similar to audi or Lamborghini maps. I think first thing is to see if it can be copied so one can have archive
  6. I saw that Rennsport is organizing 2 Dragon Tail runs this year. The first is June 4-6th and then again October 22-24th. I am in Miami Beach and was thinking of going and wondering if others from S Fla are going and if you are driving there or sending your car and if been before.... I thought if a few of us are going and either drive together if one has a problem.. or even if enough of us to fill a car carrier we could set exact dates of pickup, delivery and return of our cars plus a better rate of the car carrier... So who's going and https://www.rennsportdragonrally.com/ Edit Quote
  7. I am considering changing out the Bose Nav double din system in my 2004 996TT with the PCCM+ system. What I find anoying is that the PCCM+ system does NAV but its an additional $150 for the SD card.. Does anyone gotten the SD card yet?
  8. I just noticed that you don't mention the 996 Diagnostic Manual. It is actually an electronics manual. Do you have it? Its over 1600 pages. Ive attached the Table of Contents here for "education purposes" 911 Carrera(996) Diagnosis.pdf
  9. Well Yes I recoded the rear camera but now it needs to be calibrated and it needs a couple special tools to work along with the PIWIS 3. It looks like it needs the Spacing laser WE 1369 ( or VAS 6350/2A ) and Target Calibration Unit WE 1368 ( or VAS 6350 ) for another $3900 at Porsche retail suggested pricing.
  10. A friend asked me about replacing and activating a new backup camera in his 2013 991. The car already had a backup camera but it stopped working and he asked me because he knows I have a PIWIS 3. I think I need to access the PCM but does anyone know more specifically how to activate/code a replaced camera? and can it be done with a PIWIS 3 or does it require some other device?
  11. I'm having intermittent screen problem with the screen on my original na radio cd head unit. The screen is is grey with a couple lines but every now and then the proper screen pops up. All the features work. Is there a reasonable repair or replacement or is it time to replace head or entire system?
  12. Its always better to email direct 

  13. Why should it have stayed without a hardtop? I live in Miami and am thinking of getting a hard top for my 04 996 TT to use from May thru mid October when it's to hot to put the top down. Wouldnt the hard top keep more heat out of the car in the summer? What are the drawbacks besides a little extra weight? Wouldnt it also stiffen the car for track days?
  14. For information or assistance its always best to email me direct.

  15. It wasnt done by reading the DMEs. Originally he got the PST2 software and worked from there.
