  1. When I received my 996TT tiptronic with carbon fiber steering wheel I noticed there is a crack in the acrylic cover that covers the carbon in the lower part of the wheel. Don't know how this happened, but I assume someone overtightened a steering wheel device (club) and cracked it (IDIOT). What's worse is that the car was bought from a dealer in CO and is Porsche Certified. Anyway, I would like to try to repair vs. replace the wheel, any ideas?
  2. 2001 turbo CPO car w/ 17k mi, last service 13k. This am check engine light came on and stayed on. Computer said take car to shop? Any ideas what this may be? I am taking car in for routine service to Guadin in Vegas tomorrow. Does this car have a system like my Lexus that engine check comes on every 3k miles to remind of service?
  3. Can someone explain this: B&B exhaust, and others claim to increase hp in 996TT by 35-45hp for anywhere from $500-5000, while still meeting emissions testing. Has anyone done this and dynoed their car to confirm these claims? If so, why opt for X50 for the same hp increase and pay what $18000, prior to its inclusion in the 996TT S, besides that it is a factory option? Am I missing something? Thanks, JB ;)
  4. Yes it is 896. It does have codes 680 and 692 but the last code is 896. On another forum a member said not all codes have meaning they may be internal codes for standard equipment? The car does have body colored front grill inlets and the dealer said it was factory, maybe that it? JB
  5. Just bought '01 TT and was wondering what this option code was. I have deciphered all the other codes except this one. The car is a CPO car and the fron 3 grill inlets are painted silver (factory), maybe this is what the code is. I got a copy of the pro forma from the dealer and 896 code is not on it. Thanks, JB :help:
