    2006 997
  1. Thanks very much gentlemen —I value your comments and agree with them. Cheers.
  2. Hi all, I have a 2006 997 —it's out of warranty and I'm wondering what the ramifications on resale are if I don't have Porsche do my service. They stamp the book etc .... and I'm wondering what everyone's opinion on this might be. I can change my own oil, I got a grease gun, in fact I have a garage full of tools and a bunch of know how .... but it's that factory service stamp ... if and when I sell the car ... if I keep it for the long haul I think it doesn't matter too much, but if I sell or trade up in a year or two .... you guys get the picture ... Thoughts?
  3. One last comment .... these cars were made to be driven ... so drive them year round I say! It's a great car; but it is just a car!
  4. I just got mine from Tirerack.com a couple of weeks ago. These will work on your car if you go with 18 inch wheels. Your car came with 19inch wheels so it may be confusing the Tirerack search engine. 235/40R-18 Pirelli Winter 240 Sottozero Serie II N1 (Porsche) 265/40R-18 Pirelli Winter 240 Sottozero Serie II N1 (Porsche) Not sure about what you mean by difference between 18x8 vs. 18x8.5 ... other than the difference is in the wheel width. It's a half inch. Mine are 18x8 on the front. Look on ebay for center caps lots available.
  5. i think cfinstad and i agree .... I live in Toronto, Canada —I don't often drive in snowstorms ... so for me the real benefit is in cold conditions —around freezing and below on wet and dry pavement .... these tires stick ..... i say that as a person who routinely takes off ramps in the winter at 140kms (nearly 100mph for my budz south of the border) ... I would never have tried that on Blizzaks or X-Ice (had Blizzaks on my last Porsche and I have X Ice on the wife's car which is no tame ***** cat either).. ... i call the sottos winter performance tires ... not snow tires ... but i bet they do well in the slush too.
  6. I have a new set of Pirelli Sottozero ... they are fantastic. I put them on my stock 18 inch wheels. I will be upgrading my summer wheels to 19inch in the coming months.
