Today I picked up my 1999 Carrera 4 convertible. Drove her home 300 miles and was pretty much perfect. The only thing I dislike is the steering wheel adjustment which doesn't go up or down and as im tall means I cant see the top of the dials. A few interior rattles which im going to look at today and 3 small stone chips is really all I can find wrong. It has 68k on it with full dealer history having 9 stamps. Just had New rear exhaust, New tyres, Couple of new arms and all the brake pipes replaced for its mot. Going to get the engine oil changed along with the gearbox and front diff. The car has only done 3k since last oil change but that was almost 3 years ago.

Hi guys,

Just a little update after 6 weeks of ownership. I solved all my rates eventually mostly with a little krytox on touching parts. Had my oil changed with Fuchs titan race pro 5W-40. Fixed passenger seat issue. Full valet and waxed every week. I have put 1500 miles on her which was more than the last year and she hasn't missed a beat, Meant to be weekend car but cant help myself. Going to do the spoiler button in dash upgrade as soon as it arrives. Coilovers within next few months as I feel the suspension although working ok is 14 years old. New bigger tailpipes soon. Maybe some sideskirts aswell. One thing im not sure about is that I have jumped in and bought a double din touchscreen unit, Its not Pioneer or anything like that but still cost decent money, I have no problem shifting the climate unit and have all the facias required to do the job but im not too sure how easy the stereo wiring is going to be. I have searched lots and some of it is baffling me. How hard is this? Anyway thanks guys and im away for a drive. grin.gif

Congratulations on your new 996 Cabriolet (looks great) and welcome to Renntech! :welcome:

Installing a double din unit is not hard at all, I've installed a few. I've had good success with Crutchfield installation components and also Euro-Motorspeed on US eBay. I think your better off finding adapters for stock Porsche radio harnesses. I've seen some wiring jobs that got ugly when they try and cut of the harnesses and hardwire to new radios. Keep it clean and simple and order a good installation kit and components. Also the installation faceplate is the key to a good and sharp looking installation.
