    2000 911 Carrera Coupe
  1. JudgeJon: For those of us with real track experience, mine is most recently driving a race car on the track at the Daytona International Speedway, Let me know the next time you will be at Daytona, I work for ISC and i bring my 996 out there all the time. Between the 996 and other vehicles I probably have 2000 laps if not more on the track. Rob
  2. I am located in Florida also and the foam in my 2000 911 is all but gone and the AC is still working just fine as does the heater. best regards Rob
  3. I tried this with a spare original Porsche key Fob i got when i purchased my 911, seller said he tried changing batteries and nothing. So yesterday with nothing to do i decided to tackle this item. Did exactly as you had written in your instructions and it works. Thanks for your suggestion. Rob
  4. I ordered a LED Third Brake Light from Spoilerlights.com. Arrived a few minutes ago, installed in less then 2 minutes and fits perfectly, very bright!. I am very satisfied with this purchase, my thanks to all who replied back to my call for assistance and especially to bBunny. best regards Rob
  5. The Third Brake Light i need is the one mounted in the body, my spoiler brake light is working and this one is already an LED model. I will look into Spoilerlights.com. Thanks Rob
  6. I finally talked to someone that made sense on this subject. I talked to Andraya at Sunset Imports in Beaverton, Oregon. Andraya informed me that Porsche has the Parts on hand to manufacture the Lastest version for third Brake Light (996.631.050.06) and it could take a alittle while to get them assembled and shipped out. I was added to her list of 911 owners needing this part.
  7. The Third Brake Light Assembly on my 2000 996 Carrera fell apart into multiple pieces. The original Part number is 99663105000. I have been calling Porsche Dealerships, Pelican parts and every other Porsche parts dealers i can find but with no luck. I am being told that Porsche is not making/supplying this part anymore. I have heard of Porsche owners replacing this Part with a LED Assembly, but i have heard that the LED assembly triggers a Error Code. Does anybody know where i can purchase the original part or the LED assembly and if you have knowledge or have replaced the original assembly wi
  8. I have the Conti DWS Extreme on my 2000 996, I love them! Great wear, very quiet, great handling. I have over 20,000 miles on them and plenty of tread to go. Got them at Tire Rack. Rob
  9. I own a 2000 996 and have had zero problems with it. It currently has 47500 miles on it. I did change out the IMS just for piece of mind one and a half years ago. When my Indy removed the IMS it did not show any signs of excessive wear or damage. My IMS is a Dual Row Bearing. When the IMS was replaced (45000 miles) I decided to replace the Clutch, Pressure Plate, Throw Out Bearing, change the Transmission fluid and RMS. I was able to purchase the IMS kit directly from L&N. The total cost of the above work was $1650, that included labor and parts, now granted the Indy is a friend of mine w
  10. I have been running on Continental DWS tires and have not had any problems at all with them. The wear is exceptional, handing is very good in dry and wet conditions. My road noise has been reduced greatly since switching over to these. My car is a 2000 911Carrera. Purchased a set of 4 from Tire Rack at a very good price and had my local mechanic install them. DWS stand for Dry, Wet, Snow
  11. This is my 2000 Porsche 911 Carrera Coupe. 46000 miles. Runs like a Scalded Cat on fire. I had the L&N IMS Bearing upgrade, New Clutch, Pressure Plate, Throwout Bearing, Transmission Fluid changed as well. I Upgraded the Stereo speakers as well. This car is a pure pleasure to drive!! The picture of the 911 at Daytona International Speedway is where i work PT on the Fire/EMS Team.
  12. BritDave : That independent wouldn't happen to be Richard from Daytona Autobahn would it? If so he is my mechanic and a very good one at that!
  13. Don't use 100LL AVGAS, here is a little story that just happened regarding this subject. I was at the fuel farm at the local airport filling my AC for a flight when a guy in a Porsche rolls up and starts filling his 911 Carrera up with 100LL. I asked him if he knows that the 100LL is Leaded and not really Low Leaded. He gives me this look like i just P*ssed in his cereal and asked me what the H*ll i knew about a Porsche. He told me that he has been filling his 911 with 100LL for several months and has not had any problems. When i finished filling my AC i pointed to another 911 Carrera (200
  14. If the IMS was replaced with an L&N Retro Kit then it should be on record with L&N. They ask that you fill out completely an information sheet that asks for the Engine serial number, model, year of car, etc. That is if the owner filled the sheet out and sent it back to L&N. I made a copy of my L&N sheet along with the sales receipt and service record and placed it in the car's service records. :drive:
  15. $950 for the 45k Service?, Wow, that is high :eek: , I just had my L&N IMS retro fit done along with the RMS (free with the IMS from L&N) , pressure plate, clutch, throw out bearing, pilot bearing and 45K Service for $1616.00 ( Parts and Labor) from a friend of mine who is a Porsche Certified, ASE Master Mechanic. Too bad you are not in Central Florida where i am located, could save you $$$. Look around, there has to be other Certified Porsche mechanics out there in your area that are less costly and still do a good job.
