Newbie with lots of questions on: LED Tail Lights, Navigation DVD, IPO


Recommended Posts

Hello, I am a new Porsche owner (2005 911 TT S Cab, Cobalt blue with 25+k miles), and was looking for tail light units (not the LED bulb replacements) which have built in LED, but the ones that I have seen in Ebay, even though they are listed for this model, only fit a 997 chassis upon inquiry. Does anyone have any suggestions? The next question is prety embarrassing because I consider myself a careful owner and have read all manuals of all cars I own, but I just read the owner's manuals (the Turbo manual and the PCM stand alone manual), even one for a 911 Carrera, and they either are silent (or of course I have missed it), or refer me to the trunk compartment to load the navigation DVD which came with the car (one for the whole US and I am in South Florida?) but I cannot find a drive/reader except the one in the PCM itself which does not appear to work. Any comments? Do I have to dig in the trunk trimmings till I find it? Finally, is there any whay, other than changing the PCM factory unit (which I do not want to do since I try to keep all of my cars factory), to install an IPOD and/or a phone? In the Ferrari 360 if you disable the CD changer, you can connect an IPOD adapter and play the IPOD through the CD changer connection of the Becker radio. No phone. Thanks for the help, great forum by the way (I have been reading the postings before joining).

The LED taillight discussion has occurred ad nauseum on 6-Speed. Long story short, not likely to happen D2 the limited market. Not enough 996 widebody cars to make the production profitable.

Which Navigation disc do you have? You need the CD based Nav for your car. The latest part number is 000.044.901.21 with a price tag around $300. I have the same system and the DVD only works in the 997s.

There is a place in New York that adds an I-Pod connection, but don't know any other way to get one. Just search Becker radio repair.

The 2005 uses MOST, co the becker cable doesn't help. I use the Dension Gateway 500 for iPod, whether it will work with BT phone depends on whether your car is equipped with the phone buttons. The disk is CD as stated above and just goes right in the cd drive in the dash.

Just to add a counter point to the Dension iPod interface solution (which I'm sure is a great solution), I went with the Dice electronics version that plugs directly into the FM antenna. It was fairly cheap ($149) and works awesome. Seriously, with a TT Cabrio, I don't need stereophile sounds. This combo sounds great and is fairly inexpensive. Install only took the guy about 45 mins. I could've done it myself, but well, I'm lazy and cautious.

The LED wide body lights are available....like within the next week or 2. Only thing I can reference youto is Del Rey Customs in CA. They're going for $835 but come in normal, clear, and smoked.


As for the radio...the amp uses fiber optic and is a funky ohm rating that doesn't play nice with aftermarket gear. My head unit died and I had no desire to install a new 10 year old replacement unit w/o at least bluetooth. Long story short: $10k+, 7 inch touchscreen Appradio 3, 2100 watts, Focal K2 front stage and a pair of W7 10" JL rear.
