They are great! I bought my head bolts ($12 x24) from them when no one in US had the bolts in stock. Cheaper than US too at the time.

So they do ship to the US. Good to know. Just out of curiosity, I know someone in one of the threads was looking for a crankshaft, so I looked that up. They have them for about $4,500. Wow!

Anytime I deal internationally I'm always concerned about return policy - any mention of that?

They have a wack of x51 parts. Heads, camshafts, intakes. Expensive, parts, but not much more than the non-x51 parts...

This is an uncommon situation, but one that took far too long for me to diagnose. When my car was nailed in the left-hand side marker, one of the pins in the bulb socket got pushed down into the base of the socket and shorted against the opposite polarity pin. In this configuration, smoke will come from your instrument cluster when you turn on the headlights, which is less than ideal.

I spent far too much time focusing on the cluster, since I'd replaced that bulb any number of times without noticing the bent pin inside the socket; I assumed (incorrectly) that a short would result in a blown fuse.

This will probably never happen to any other 996 owner, but that's what the deal was. Man, it's nice to be able to drive at night again.

*edit* Thanks to Lesli and Gavin from ModuleMasters, who kindly offered to help me troubleshoot via telephone.

I changed out my rear light clusters for Spyder LED units. Plug and play as advertised and a nice upgrade. I kept the original units for when/if I sell the car. Now the “problem. After I was done, I had refit the original incandescent bulbs for the backup lights and the rear fogs, the right side rear fog did not work. Assumed a blown bulb and since I was opening it up anyway, bought 4 LED replacement bulbs for the backup lights and fogs. Replaced all four and.......the right rear fog didn’t’t work. THAT’S when I Googled it only to find out that the right rear fog was never supposed to work on North American cars and Porsche supplied the cars with a wired plug to keep moisture out but no bulb. Apparently this is known but I guess the prior owner thought there should be a bulb and installed it. Dumb me just “assumed” and put in an LED. So now, I am permanently carrying a replacement 1157 LED bulb in the right rear fog position for when one of the others burns out (like NEVER). Live and learn. Hopefully this helps someone else.
