XKW - ? perhaps XKX - instrument surround in arctic silver

XNY - trim strip in arctic silver

Loren,

Thanks very much.

It's definitely XKW as XKX is right next to it. I'll ask the dealer next time it's in for a service. It got a clean bill of health from the distributor so I'm picking it up on Monday night. :jump:

Still not clear on C02.

C02 is the country equipment code for the US. Canada is C36. Mexico is C34. Germany is C00. For example.

It can include everything from emission equipment, warning stickers, to the idiot lights on the instrument cluster.

There is no C25 on my Country Codes List.

If 398 & 232 are Options then:

398 could be:

• Left outside mirror electric plain

• 17" Cup Design wheels

• P31 sports chassis (968) with Cup design wheels ??

232:

• Change of manufacturer of tyre installed on the production line (not customer selectable)

Firstly hello to you all. I am a first time Porsche buyer and must say I'm as impressed with these cars as I thought I would be. I have had some interesting vehicles in the past but none quite get out of corners the same way as this one does, even though I have some trouble (well fun :rolleyes: ) keeping the power slides under control. I shudder to think what my life expectancy would be if I had sourced a turbo first up. I'm secretly glad I didnt. This one will be great to learn how to drive properly in.

I have a 2002 996 vehicle. C2. Trip. Black metallic exterior and black leather interior.

Its an Australian car (C23)

I too have the code 226 which I cant find any info on.

Doesnt feature too many other codes but seems to match as the vehicle is pretty vanilla.

My codes are

C23 - Australia

X70 - Alu door guards

X71 - Alu style instruments

226 - the mystery code

249 - trip auto

411 - 18" wheels

432 - not sure if it relates to the paint or the wheel as both are correct

680 - Bose sound system

Must say this site is a marvel of information. Congratulations to you all.

I have also just noticed that the previous owner (?) has written in biro on the label (label is quite faded) #016.

Dunno if thats some extra thing thats been added but another code I cant find so far anywhere....
