babylonboots started following 996 Series (Carrera, Carrera 4, Carrera 4S, Targa)
babylonboots replied to Oscarvan's topic in 996 Series (Carrera, Carrera 4, Carrera 4S, Targa)3.6 Engine CL This may be an option for you - I saw this on CL in Denver. $6500 is a good price.
babylonboots replied to seanmcr6's topic in 996 Series (Carrera, Carrera 4, Carrera 4S, Targa)Rock chip? How's that... What kind of rock would get in the crevice like that. It looks like screwdriver chip to me, top and bottom.
Sounds like a good engagement gift from her father. I mean, how can you place a value on the love between a father and daughter...

I replaced my CD holders with the shelf. A thought occurred to me (a mind is a dangerous thing) re: power outlets. I purchased a multi-power port (12V & USB) that I'm going to wire into the cigarette lighter to provide additional spots for GPS, Radar detector, phone charging etc. I plan to attach the port to the shelf with velcro and wire through back of shelf (out of sight). I'll still be able to put items in the tray, but have the added power ports. I'll take some before / after photos to illustrate the process.
Are there any "Customer Testimonials" on this yet? Inquiring minds want to know...
Cool. Can't wait to check the site out.
The manufacturer's shipping is taking far longer than I had planned, but they should be en route. I'll keep you guys posted on when they become available, which should be soon, but I won't know until they get here. Thanks for your continued interest! Can you provide any rough ideas as to installation details & level of difficulty? Thanks hilo!
I wonder if Weathertech makes them. They have high quality products... Will check... Bingo... Here's the link for mine - 2001 C4 Cab911 C4 Cab mats
So, what's the latest on these? Needing another winter project... If I wait too long, may have to Fiskerize my exhaust... :drive:
I was at the Porsche dealership last month and one father just bought his son a new turbo GT3 after graduating from college with a 4.0 average - that was the deal, he get a 4.0 and dad would buy him whatever car he wanted. I would have loved to have a 911 when I was 16. In retrospect, probably best that I waited a few years till the testosterone levels declined to a reasonable level and my driving skills came up to a reasonable level. Your son may be an exception to the rule and not to mention the stats that insurance companies collect about teenage drivers. Personally, I'd get him a less powerful fuel efficient car that he could learn on first, then dangle the pcar carrot out there for a reward for accident / ticket free driving when he graduated, turned 18, got into college, etc., etc.. You should visit www.wreckedexotics.com and read some of the stories about teenage drivers with high performance vehicles... Whatever your decision, I wish your son all the best. He's lucky to have parents like y'all. Be safe!
babylonboots replied to Loren's topic in 996 Series (Carrera, Carrera 4, Carrera 4S, Targa)Keep us posted! Can't learn enough about these great automobiles.
Thanks. Looks promising. That mod makes the top work as you'd expect it to. Can it stop opening or closing as well, e.g. for an emergency situation?
Any videos available to see the prototype in action?
It was an interesting article. Thanks for sharing. I don't necessarily agree with him, but I don't have a lot of experience driving pre 1998 pcars. One thing for sure, I'm enjoying the heck out of my 996 and am happy that the prices are in the mid-20s, much to the chagrin of the article's author. The PSM has saved my butt more than once already, the interior is very plush vs what I remember about my brother-in-law's 70ish 911. It may be that the author considered his purchase of the '99 996 as a "golden investment opportunity" he could cash in on it, but is less than happy that it did not turn out as planned. He did mention that he owned 3 Porsches, BTW.
