2005 TTS Hardtop help

Recommended Posts

Hi guys, first post. I bought a 2002 996 hardtop. I have a 2005 TTS that did not come from the factory with a hardtop. Do I need receiver bayonets? Did the 2005 996 TTS have them or did they go to the newer style? Is there a way to change the top to the newer style fittings? or do I need the old style receiver Bayonets? Do all Cabs come with fittings inside them even when ordered without a hardtop? 

Thank you guys.

Why should it have stayed without a hardtop?  I live in Miami and am thinking of getting a hard top for my 04 996 TT to use from May thru mid October when it's to hot to put the top down. Wouldnt the hard top keep more heat out of the car in the summer?  What are the drawbacks besides a little extra weight?  Wouldnt it also stiffen the car for track days?

Stiffen the car, absolutely not.
It's even worse than the soft top as far as noise goes. I bought it. I installed it. I used it half a season. It's been under its cover since.
It's ALMOST as embarrassing as a classic 911 targa roof.
