i like the fact that all 3 buttons are available, and the small light is visible when a button is pushed.

I just bought a rocker switch with a garage symbol on it for the dash. I'm hoping it has 2 switch options and can program 2 garage doors to it.

Oil change day. Also changed the gearbox fluid. Tough time finding the correct lube. Ended up at the Dealership. Man those new Porsche's look good.

Oil change day. Installed spin on filter adapter and magnetic drain plug also. I guess after owning it 6 years figured it was time. Old filter looked great without any metal that I could see.

Just had an alignment this morning after I put on new shocks, struts, inner and outer tie rods and drop links. Rides like a new car now.

Very nice work. How many miles on your car?

Got new rear tires. Wow what a difference all around. Hadn't replaced them for a few years and the old ones were downto the wear bars and even had some core showing. New ones are much quieter.

I bought a kit from Amazon after watching this video. The kit I bought is very complete and was only $68. I tried it out my VW to get the hang of it before diving into my 996. The 996 had a pretty deep ding in the fender right by the fuel door. The ding was 90% gone after the first attempt. I did a few more pulls and now it's almost perfect. I might try to get it back to 100% if I have some time. At the moment I'm happy because you really have to look for it to see it.

The guy in the video says that this video is the second part but there is nothing interesting or informative in the first video so start with this one.
