What Tips are these?

Recommended Posts

I have a 1999 C4 Cab 996. I am trying to determine what Tips I saw. The Tips I saw were funnel shaped. The exit was much larger than stock. It was not a circle next to a circle (like AurthurK’s Tips). Anybody have any ideas?

No....those tips are for a MY02-present (different rear bumper cover). The tips on my MY00CAB are for MY98-01. If you have you heart set on those tips (the dual ovals) then you will have to go aftermarket.

Oh yeah......of course make sure you post pics of whatever you decide!

Good Luck,

No......but anything is possible with the right "alterations" and $$$. Do a search for people that have changed the look pf their car (especially model year changing) and you may get the answer you are looking for.

Can someone please post a closeup view of these, and maybe a side view? I've never seen them before and I'm interested. Thanks.

you're welcome b-man. Hope that helps with the decision.

Rob, not sure I remember who sells the tips but I did see a post (not sure if it was here or over at rennlist) where somebody wanted the 02+ C4 tips on their <01 car and posted a pic.

I have those pipes and they were part of the "Aluminum/Chrome Package" which was an option in 1999 . It includes the pipes, door sills and the aluminum dial. I also have the Gear shift knob and brake handle in leather/aluminum as an option . I got a Certificate of Authenticity with all the options ( details) which includes sport chassis, leather sport seats, Xenon, HIFI sound package,computer , CD player, traction control with ABD and Limited Slip, 18 inch sports wheels etc . Total MSRP was 81,403.00 in 1999.

A certificate of Authenticity is a certificate which is issued by Porsche America which shows the information on the car including all the options that is was shipped with, it also shows you the date of manufacture and the MSRP price. Thus if you make modifications or add aftermarket parts / mods to it, it will not be showing on this Certificate. The Certificate will cost you 95 dollars.

Well you overpaid by about $90. $1 for the paper and $4 for the postage would be right. Now I understand what you are talking about and I have seen a "COA" (I looked into it when I bought my car and realized what a crock $95 was) and it is nothing more than a gimmick to get suckers to pay $95 for. Back when it was in the $35 is was more reasonable. What difference does it make what options came on the car before OR after purchase? NONE. By the way, you really seem to be wrapped up in numbers. All MY996 was asking about was tips....NOT everything you got on your car plus the option plus what the MSRP for your car was plus etc etc etc.
