Don't know what a 4S would do to the equation, but my PDK C2 is very responsive. If it did what you describe, I'd be in the shop with it. On a decent slope the brakes grab enough to freak me out - no rolling back for sure, but I need to get used to that. Caveat though - I am only in regular mode as long as I have forgotten to push Sport or S+ (not long) and I don't do Auto very often either. I found a really cool doc "2009_Technik_Introduction_All_997_Carrera_models.pdf" on some forum - could be here or PCA.org, not sure. Anyway, it explains much more about PDK (and more) than ever made it to the Owner's Maunals. Turns out the Sport and Plus modes also effect Manual shifting - cool stuff and makes S+ actually usable in normal driving. Auto and S+ is too over the top for around town for me. I'll attach it - if that's a no-no, sorry, someone delete it. Actually, better, here's the link: (link deleted) Worth a read for sure. Thant document is available here to our Contributing Members - and the linked document was likely taken from here. What section is it in. I plan to donate if I can find it.
Yes, I bought the optional Thicker Sport Wheel but it came with tip switches. I need info on how to remove those and reinstall mine. I removed on screw but something else is holding it in :-(
Does anyone know how to remove the alumalook blank plates to either side of the airbag on the Sport Steering Wheel? Is there any special trick needed to remove them?
ANYONE, ANYONE ? :huh:
If you go after market be willing to accept some vibration or resonance. They sound better and do make more power but I could not live with the drawbacks. Probably because I’m picky. I tried AWE and then switched to the new Porsche Sport Exhaust due to a slight vibration around 2000rpm when downshifting or stopping. Other exhausts to consider are Milltek, Tubi and Fabspeed. For exhaust tips keep an eye on ebay. I picked up the optional Boxster chrome exhaust for a great price. Also check out Booth Designs for chroming options on your stock tip.
How about the alum-i-look blank plates to either side of the airbag, is there any special trick needed to remove them?
This wheel doesn't come with switches. So my only option is to use the blanks off my wheel. Thanks for the try though.
Does anyone know for certain if a TIP sport steering wheel can be converted to a MANUAL sport steering wheel by changing the TIP switches to the MANUAL covers? In other words is the exact same wheel used for both applications? Manual 997.347.980.00.T24 TIP 997.347.980.01.T24
I'm a bit lost here. Do you remove the one bolt in the center? Or the four bolts marked in green?
I believe it is worth it. The sound seems better. Not so much louder but the essence is different / cooler. I left the snorkel in place and used small bolts to attach a screen to the inner frame.
EUREKA, after 3 hours I finally got it off :clapping: I had to attack the middle tabs first and then the top came loose. Maybe there is hope for the mechanically challenged. :renntech: AGAIN :D
Ok, after spending 2 f****** hours trying to remove my vent I’m convinced this entire link is a cruel conspiracy to make me feel like a complete IDIOT. It worked. I thought you guys were my friends But seriously, I can’t get this thing out It is a possessed demon vent! Hopefully someone at the dealership will show me how. :censored:
