German C4S 2004


Recommended Posts

Hi all

First post :)

I am buying a 996 C4S (2004) from a German OPC this week. I will be doing a personal import to the UK. I realise i will need to address the headlights, but downloading Lorens 996 owners manual it appears the units on the speedo can be easily changed. This would be acceptable to the British DVLA, However i did notice this manual is for American / Canadian cars, does this hold true of European spec cars?

Many thanks in advance

The analog speedo will be in Km/h on a German car. You can change over between mph and kph on the digital speedo by twisting a button.

Thanks very much! I was a little concerned that maybe the European clusters didn't have the Canadian / US facility.

Thanks again

Hi,

I also imported in the UK a 996 C4 Conv from Porsche Hambourg and got it through the DVLA. The speedo is not an issue as you can easily change from mlph to kmph and vice versa. The main issue was to get the headlights from EU standard to UK standard for the MOT. I only managed to go through it with patches so far. I could not manage to find the place to move the headlights as they are xenon and I could not find the right place to adapt them, but still looking.
