Re: 997 rattle

Hi It was in the middle but the dip stick was low.....hence I topped it up Ok let's break this down so that we can better understand the situation.... 1. You went for a 150 mile drive and upon parking it and turning it off, the car was alerting you to "Check oil level". It didn't alert you to "low ...

So, what do you guys think about getting a taller size tire?

Factory and proposed size:
225/40/18 --- 225/45/18
295/30/18 --- 285/35/18
IMHO, you may have scrubbing moving up to 45 series tires on the front. The backs shouldn't be a problem with stretching the 285/35/18 on the 11" OEM wheels.

Re: What did you do to/with your 996 today?

Yeah. I know they markup and generally I'm OK with it as they have to make a living too, but almost $200 is excessive. They'll let me bring them parts sourced elsewhere, but other than engaging the stupid hex bolts to remove the airbag it is an easy DIY (clock springs don't scare me). I had a Merce...

Re: Need MK1 Tail light

Thanks man. I got a guy from another site who says I can have his for shipping. It might be a little damaged, but not where you can see. I think I've decided that any non-c4s, turbo, widebody will fit. Who knows. Can't beat freebies! Yep... pretty much all the NB rear lights will fit. Some of the e...

Re: Need MK1 Tail light

Went out to the car this afternoon and found this. Not the biggest crack, but now that I've seen it I can't un-see it when I take the car out. Tiny little divot in the middle of the crack indicates something hit it. Someone probably hit it with a cart, or otherwise backed into it. Kids are a darkho...
