New member and new to me 996

Recommended Posts

I thought I should introduce myself as I finally got myself a '00 996 C2 Coupe Tiptronic with Aero Kit, black full leather, navigation. I've been lurking for a while, but haven't had anything to post. I just sold my '00 540i 6-speed (VF Supercharged) to take the plunge into the world or Porsche. I didn't think I would like the tiptronic transmission, but it has grown on me. Especially not having to clutch 1,000 times in stop and go traffic. I still have to get used to only 2 pedals, but the speed of shifts are surprisingly responsive.

I have found a lot of good information on this site and hope to be able to contribute what I learn about my car. Here is a pic of it.

Welcome, dustinbriq! Sweet Ride!

I have a tip too, and I love it. Practical in everyday traffic.

But sometimes I do wish I had a stick just to play.

I have been doing the same, driving in manual mode, as I am used to driving a manual transmission. This is the first auto tranny I've owned in a car (trucks are a different story). Automatic is a nice option to have sitting in bumper to bumper traffic as the 996 is now my daily driver.

Very nice choice. Have to agree that Tiptronic is a good option when in city traffic and the manual setting once you get use to it is excellent in the "twisty bits".

Enjoy
