  1. The rear spolier on my 1996 993 is stuck in the extended position. Trying to retract it using the toggle switch in the car has no impact. Anyone had this problem who might offer some suggestions? Thanks
  2. Randall, thanks. I was thinking along similar lines and have asked for the old speedo. Based on a recent discussion with the folks who did the work, they may also be questioning internally how they have handled this. Just doesn't seem right that I will now have to explain this mileage issue when I have the inspected or if I move to another state, etc. let alone if I sell it.
  3. I have a 1996 993, and a short while back my odometer failed; but the speedo continued to work fine. A local authorized Porsche dealer replaced the speedo/odometer unit and when I picked the car up, the speedo was set to "0" miles. The mileage on the car had frozen at 57,029, when the odometer failed. I was very surprised to see the odometer at zero, but was told that teh unit is sealed and could not be reset to reflect the prior mileage. I have concern about convincing a potential future owner just what the mileage is on the car. Any thoughts on this? I have the service folks at Porsche looking into this as they are not certain that it was handled as it should have been. Thanks for any input.
