Hi everyone,


I am happy to announce that the first few sets of "LIGHT SAVERS" have been shipped to customers for review and comment.  After these customers

have commented on what they think of the product and what they like and /or what should be changed, we will make necessary adjustments and release

them to everyone.post-94431-0-23413900-1456772980_thumb.jpost-94431-0-38355800-1456772975_thumb.j

Hi Guys,


I am finished with the new design and am currently, as in today, producing parts.  Unless something goes wrong I will be releasing the "lucky 13" on Monday.  I will post a link here on 6Speed to an eBay listing for 13 at the introductory price of $29.95. after that, refer to my website, www.ycccdiy.com where they can be purchased at the full price of $79.95.  If you are purchasing from outside the USA, please be sure to select the correct buy it now button as shipping is different for USA and international.  Thank you all for your patience, I'm heading back out to the shop.  Look for my "Light Savers" video on my youtube channel, engineerboy100 also, coming tomorrow (Sunday) for a look at the final version and tips on how to install correctly.

The Light Savers are in production and a batch of "Lucky-13" will be placed on eBay Monday afternoon.  A link to the listing will be posted here on 6speed. Once the initial 13 promotionally priced units are gone, the Light Savers can be purchased from my website www.ycccdiy.com for the regular price of $79.95. Those who get the promo "Thank You" price please post  pics and reviews of product for others to see. We already have some happy customers:




Thank you

Sounds like a great deal; especially for those of us that have broken tabs. Can you put me down for a set is seal gray if possible. Please let me know and I can PayPal the funds to you or purchase them on your web site. Thank you again for replying back so quickly.



Do you still want seal gray? I strongly recommend against it and suggest you watch the YouTube Video first before choosing seal gray.  I can make them, but you probably won't like the way they look when you get them.  I would go with black like the OEM mount flange.  But if you ultimately decide you want gray, red, yellow, blue etc.  I can make them, just let me know.

Bought the black set on eBay on the 21st. I will be putting them on this weekend and decided against the color option for the same reasons you listed. Thank you for coming up with a simple fix for our lights. Very quick delivery by the way...

Light Savers are now available and have been now for about a week.

They can be purchased from our website - www.ycccdiy.com

They are also on eBay for the same price just search for "Porsche Light Savers"

You may also send a payment directly to our PayPal e-mail at: Porschetaillight@gmail.com

We did have a special for $29.95 which many have been asking about. That special has ended but we may run another special around Christmas.

The current price is $79.95 for a set of 2 not each. I am working very hard on getting the aluminum powder coated version up and available but for now we only have the automotive thermal impact plastic version. The aluminum version will be $124.95 and will also be on our website and on eBay and via direct PayPal as well.

I will post another video for the aluminum version as well. Here is a link for installation of the polymer version. We strongly recommend that you watch the video before attempting to install your Light Savers and close the engine compartment lid slowly at first while checking for clearance!

Here is a sneak preview of what we are designing for the Aluminum version "Light Saver 2" we are working on the tooling and molds and they should be available in 90-days if all goes well as planned. Take a look. The words "Light Saver" on the current version will be replaced with the initials "LS" as you will see and the letters will be offered in the color of your choice.

Just ordered a set. Looking forward to going back to my stock tails. I was using the Del Rey Customs.

Thank you so much! That is such a huge complement that you are going to put your stock taillights back on now that the Porsche Light Savers make it

affordable and easy to do yourself. They are on their way ;)

      I am completely flummoxed by this noise I am getting in my 2004 Turbo Cab.  A couple nights ago while driving home with the top down, I noticed a rattle different from the normal sound of the motor and not accelerating/decelerating with changes in engine RPM.  It occurred at 1800-2000 rpm and was most noticeable when decelerating in 2nd gear in my neighborhood at slow speeds (~20MPH)...  with a helper on the throttle and the engine compartment open, it sounds like it is coming from the right side-top of the engine, around the Hydraulic reservoir.  Putting a spanner/wrench on the component and up to the temple seems to have confirmed this as the source.  I checked my manual and the Pentosin level (mid range on the HOT side of the dipstick at operating temp)  I realize that Porsche recommends checking at 20C but I live in Texas now and that won't happen until November.  Just out of curiosity I looked at the clutch reservoir up front and after removing the gooey trim cover, found it leaking (Seeping) from the recently replaced cap and appearing to be overfilled.  The car has never really been operated in the 8 years I have had it in particularly high average temperatures, so I am hoping that the front is thermal expansion.  Any thoughts on this matter are greatly appreciated... Loren?  What Say You??
      Thanks in advance,

      Odd one for the group here:
      I have a 2004 Turbo Cab (manual) with X50 that I have owned since early 2010 and put around 30K miles on in that time (Bought with ~20k miles).  I recently found a 2004 Turbo Cab ( Tiptronic) with ~29,000 miles that was such a good deal that my parents purchased it.  I drove the thing recently while visiting and a couple times in constant-radius turns on back roads, the PSM intervened out of nowhere (The first time it happened I actually thought I hit a shift button with my thumb and downshifted mid corner).  Anyway, I got it to intervene once more in a pretty benign turn.  There certainly wasn't 7 degrees of slip angle and I have to push my own car much harder (read: screw up the corner entry) to get PSM to intervene.  I guess my question(s) is/are this:  Is there a difference in the PSM software between the Tiptronic cars and Manual?,  a malfunction in the Tip?
      Very interested to hear the responses.  Thanks

      Hi - I am looking for some help.  The headlights are the litronic ones.
      I don't drive the car very often - maybe once a month and often this is in the daylight.
      I had a headlight globe 'fail' about 12 months ago.  I replaced it and everything seemed good.  Then it stopped working.  Then it started working.  Then both headlights stopped working - some of the time.  I am beginning to think that this is possibly not a globe problem.
      Any suggestions?

      I am running into some electrical issues that all happened at once.  Here are the items that I found not functioning:  Cluster Illumination, power seats, radio ( PCM does not power on), engine lid switch (frunk works), HVAC (the screen is functioning, but not blowing any air).
      The car starts fine and runs.  I initially thought maybe the ignition switch was faulty, so I went ahead and replaced but nothing changed.  I have checked many fuses and they all look fine.  There are no trouble codes. 
      If it matters, this is the scenario when I noticed all the problems: I just finished driving about 70 miles with no problems. Park the car outside and it started to rain.  I needed to move the car so I got back in and noticed when I turned the light switch to the first notch, cluster did not illuminate but the headlights worked when I turned it to the next notch.  Then I started testing to find the other symptoms.  Everything was working on the drive I took a few hours before.  Though after the drive, I was messing with the light switch to see if the fog lights worked.  I never use them and for whatever reason I wanted to test if it worked, so I was turning the light switch way more than usual I guess.   I drive the car a few times a week as it is my main car.
