  1. I've had both on my 996's - GHL and Fabspeed. GHL has nice note at RPM's and no resonance. Fabspeed has more aggressive sound at idle and at RPM. Not a substantial performance difference noticed in the driver's seat between the two Regards sb
  2. 2002 - 2006 Chrysler color PS2 (Bright Silver Metallic) is a close match if just a very small chip or nick in the rim(s).
  3. I can save you a great deal of time as I spent hours upon hours researching this. The Bootlid/ wing on a 996 Turbo coupe will also fit a 996 Turbo Cab and a 996 C4S Cab only. No narrow bodied coupes nor the C4S coupe can accept the Turob bootlid/ wing as the opening is far to small from the rear bumper to the upper valance panel (top boot on cabs). Hope this helps sb
  4. I've had several Porsches. Had most brands of tires on the vehicles. Michelin Pilots give best ride and best wear over time. If you are looking for a great look and save a little the Bridgestone KDW has a neat tread pattern and is really a good buy but I have only got 6-12k on the rears on 996's.
  5. Try this link for great pix and tons of help on your project. Regards sb http://www.6speedonline.com/forums/showthr...ht=turbo+bumper
  6. Just switched over to OEM turbo front bumper on my 2002 996 cab. Relatively simple if you get the correct front inner wheel well liners for a C4S plus the center underbody panel that attaches the unibody to the front bumper. You will also need to remove about 3 1/2 inches at each end of the aluminum inner bumper strip that attaches to the car so it will clear the air inlets on the turbo bumber. As noted before the headlights are different for pre-02 cars and you will need turbo/ '02 or newer headlights...not sure on the fenders being different. There is a great post here on step by step in
  7. Looking at a used MA Shaw engine lid for 996 coupe. My question is, will it fit on a cabriolet as well? Regards sb
  8. Agreed...call Mike at M A Shaw (www.mashaw.com) great guy, great stuff, great prices! sb
  9. Try using white vinegar and a clean soft towel. This works great for both acid rain and/or water spots. Often black paint will "burn" in the calcium in water spots. This works great and virtually effortless and will not hurt the paint. Regards sb
  10. I also have this problem. This is my 9th 911 and fully aware of the normal startup smoke that 911's can bless us all with. My 02 996 cab literally bellows white/ grayish smoke at startup when it is colder than 55 degrees outside and I parked the car "hot" after driving aggressively with high RPM downshifts. It smokes so bad that you literally cannot see across my driveway when you first fire it up. Local Porsche dealer suggested lower test fuel during the colder months which has made it better but by no means solved my problem. I do not get this all the time but it is extremely excessive.
