  1. I'm currently in the process of buying (or trying to buy) a 1998 996 C2 which has PSM. The rear tyres will be replaced by the dealer (who is not a Porsche franchise, but does deal in prestige brands) as the current rear tyres - which are 285/30/18 PZero Rosso - are nearly worn out on the inside. The proposed tyre to replace the rears are Hankook directional tyres. The front tyres have plenty of life left in them but are 225/40/18 Continentals which are asymmetric. I'm wondering if I should insist on Hankook at all four corners - if I don't, is this set-up dangerous with the asymmetric front and directional rear? I will be daily driving this car, with the occasional aggressive drive on twisty public roads - but no trackwork planned as I can't insure for that in this country. I was planning on driving the fronts out as they are good quality tyres - but now I'm having second thoughts (it's evening here in NZ...)
  2. Hi all - this is my first post here. I'm posting from New Zealand. I'm looking seriously at the purchase of a 1998 C2 - one of the things which came up in the pre-purchase inspection is that the toolkit is missing from the car - the one with a few basic tools and a towhook. If I can get a toolkit secondhand from a dismantler in New Zealand or online through Ebay etc, I'm wondering if the toolkit is the same for the 996 and the Boxster? It looks the same from the photos I've seen, but I'm new to Porsches and I'm just not sure. Thanks in advance for any answers.
