I have a 2000 C2 cabriolet.

Among some other dealer services, I asked them to examine if I was missing any rearmost plastic underbody peices. They informed me for my model year, all appropriate componenets are in place. I have little reason to distrust their findings, but a few things trouble me:

When I look under the car it appears there are screw holes evident for further body panels that would attach and extend further rearward. As it is, the gearbox is entirely exposed (making fluid changes a breeze, but I recall a panel removal outlined described in the DIY FAQ posted here). The existing panels stop about 4 inches short of an aluminum lateral brace under the car.

Based on this description, does this sound appropriate? Are newer model years fitted with more underbody paneling? Should I just sneek peeks under similar cars when I encounter them in parking lots? The latter might get me in trouble......

Thanks in advance-

Andrew

The Transmission oil change instructions come from the Porsche Service Manual so perhaps some of the early cars had these covers.

Sounds like everything is there...

Underbody Covers (current cars)

So what you are asying is that early 1999 & very early 2000 models may have had these plates; however it does not mean that mine as a later 2000 build or subsequent models may have these plates.

Thanks for clearing that up.

The attached photo mirrors the setup i currently have........ok I have more faith in my dealer service now.

Loren,

Do you know where I can find the part numbers for the rear most panels? Specifically, the long skinny panel that extends across the car from just in front of the rear tires?

Also, the square panel that intersects that one?

Thanks
