wangt1015 replied to sunracer's topic in 997-1 Series (Carrera, Carrera 4, Carrera 2S, Carrera 4S)My car is arriving sometime around the 20th of this month. I am plannning to lease this time instead of buying it. I purchased my last C4 and after driving it for a few years, I realized that the depreciation is pretty close to the cost of leasing it. Since I can use the lease payment as a tax write off and I don't plan on doing major mods to it, and I like the idea of getting a new one every few years, I decided to go with the lease.
wangt1015 replied to wangt1015's topic in 997-1 Series (Carrera, Carrera 4, Carrera 2S, Carrera 4S)Thanks for the info. My car is due to arrive at the san diego port on 3/17. So I guess a couple more weeks to go!
The car sure looks nice with the sport design wheels on them. The car I am getting is equipped with the Carrera S wheel, I wonder if the dealer will let me exchange them for the sport design one by just paying the difference between those two? Did you guys just buy another set or did you guys swap them with some dealerships also?
Which one do you guys like?
wangt1015 replied to sunracer's topic in 997-1 Series (Carrera, Carrera 4, Carrera 2S, Carrera 4S)State Farm is awesome. I got in a car accident 2 years ago. I decided to have my car totalled instead of fixing it. The car was only 2 months old and State Farm wrote me a check that was the same amount I paid for the car! Tax included also!!!! And the best part was, I got the check 6 CALENDAR DAYS after my accident!!!!!
I'm really not sure if it's the same for the 6 spd. The part number for the same carbon kit that I ordered is different for the 997 6spd. It is: 99704480037A10 It is actually a better deal to purchase the Wheel, shifter and ebrake than to buy the wheel by itself. I don't know what the individual part number is for the wheel only. Activating the wheel is going to likely cost you a few hundred bucks at the dealer. Thanks for the info. Do you remember how much the kit was and how much it would be if I purchase just the wheel?
Does anyone know if the sport chrono package can be added on to the 997 after taking delivery of the car?
Do you know if it is also that simple for a manual 997? And by the way, what is the part number for the multi-function wheel for a manual 997? Is it the same number as the tiptronic ones?
Dealer just called and told me that my new 2006 997 was finally on the vessel on 2/24/06. Does anyone know how long it takes usually before it gets to the dealership? I am in California by the way. I can't wait!!!!!
