What did I do to my 997 today? I broke it.

Add me to the list of folks with snapped shifter cables....at least that is my assumption. I was shifting from second to third and felt a pop. Now the shifter moves freely fore and aft but does not move left and right, and the transmission is stuck in third gear. Fortunately I was still in the neighborhood just three or four blocks from home so I managed to limp home in third gear. I know the car is almost 11 years old but still very disappointing to have such a critical failure with only about 42k miles on the clock.

It's possible the cables just popped out of their mounts so the ends have nothing to leverage a giant to move. Common issue. If that's the problem, once you get them seated again in the mounts, wire tie them in there so they can't pop out again.

If the plastic ends did in-fact break, you can either replace the complete cables with upgraded versions from Numeric or you can replace just the ends with those from Function First.

Plug & play, yes that easy.
Does this allow Bluetooth streaming of music from an Android phone? The website says yes in some places and then only mentions iPhones in other places.

Finally a day without rain in SoCal. I installed new motor mounts (Rein from RennPart) and the rear end behaves so much better. Tail pipes sit better after install but not perfect so I adjusted them. Not only does it drive better but the amount of vibration in the cabin is reduced. Not sure why I waited so long.

Next up are new front LED fogs lights and a complete replacement of all window tint. The tint is old, hazy and a bit to dark for SoCal.

Hi there Icey!
yep, works with my Android, but I had to unpair my iPhone first. I think the Bovee only allows 1 connection at a time.
Cheers
Craig.

Sweet, thanks for the response. I recently started using Spotify and was disappointed to find that my Galaxy S9 only communicates with my ‘09 with the phone. The car doesn’t play music from the phone, even when it’s hardwired to the console interface.

Found a tan leather centre console on eBay and dyed it Sea blue.

Last night I installed my RS shift **** to match my LedermanZ steering wheel. I love the splash of matching red on my controls (pedals, shifter, and wheel).

Took off my 18" Winter wheels, and installed new to me 19" takeoffs from an '07 Turbo on to my C4S.

Drove to Butler Tire Buckhead on the roller rubber, and am having new TPMS and PS4S installed.

I use an MPOW adapter that connects to the phone for music streaming but still.allows the phone to connect to the PCM for the phone profile on my Android. Both can be connected simultaneously. Charges from the USB and pumps the music in through the aux plug.
