  1. I purchased an '89 Carrera 4 back in January and recently started having the following problems that I believe (hope?) are related: 1. At low speeds (<40mph) it feels at though the center differential is having a difficult time determining which wheels (front/rear) to direct power. The engine runs perfectly, but the car will rhythmically hesitate/jerk forward while *slowly* accelerating. It's not enough to make the car un-drivable, but it is annoying. Under spirited acceleration, everything soothes out and the effect isn't noticeable at all. Once you reach 35-40mph or so the pr
  2. On my '04 996TT the pump and reservoir are installed horizontally, not vertically like shown in the DIY. A small bracket mounts the pump assembly to the vertical body panel. In this position the fill plug is pointing downwards, so I assume that I'm going to have to remove a few pieces to maneuver the pump and reservoir into position so that it can be filled. Interestingly I haven't read any other comments from people with this setup, so for now I assume that this change came with the 996.2 body update. Something to consider if you are going to do this repair. Cheers. EDIT: It turns
  3. I contacted ICM and asked for some details regarding this MOST adapter. It looks like a nice (cheap) alternative to the NavTV, but there are a few limitations: 1. It only has *one* pair of inputs (L/R) rather than four (L/R + Front/Rear). Since the Bose amp will still be used, all speakers will work, but there will be no fader control. 2. Unlike the NavTV this unit does not support *any* of the steering wheel buttons (although with the Nav-TV it only works with Kenwood/Alpine). Might be worth a try for those looking for a more cost effective solution. Cheers. -bill k
  4. I've heard that the NAV-TV kit is the way to go when replacing the MOST Porsche head unit with something more modern, but at $600 it's almost more economical (although much more work) to replace the amp instead. Has anyone had any luck with one of these: http://www.ebay.com/itm/MOST-Fibre-Optics-Head-Unit-Replacement-Module-for-Porsche-Cayenne-/351442148500?hash=item51d3959c94 At $180, it's less than 1/3rd the price. They're out of London and I've even found a Russian distributor that has what looks like the same box for $130. Any thoughts? Cheers. -bill k
  5. If you turn the gas nozzle "upside down" so that the handle is pointing up into the air you shouldn't have any issues filling the tank. Looks ridiculous, but it works. Cheers.
