Cool, let’s sync up soon.

Its funny, I’ve always assumed rod bearings caused the failure, guess that wasn’t the case. I ran that engine with a 7250rpm rev limit if I remember right, so a rod...

I’ve been stalking this thread since soloracer mentioned the old 951 is being resurrected. Any 2018 updates? Would love to see this in person again sometime.

No effect. Realistically, you're not going to get a premium unless you have under 10k miles and never drive the thing, but you would get no value out of the car. Most of the people shopping for...

The CLK Black Series started off as a one off project as F1 needed pace cars that are fast and reliable enough to lead F1 cars. Heavily stiffened, tons of extra cooling, full coilover suspension,...

I bought my 03 996TT non X50 with 23000 miles last year for 50k and sold it last week for 47k with 30000 miles. It took all of 2 days to sell. I probably could've sold it for 50k or more if I gave it...

Go dig it up, and you'll find 9kg of downforce at 300km/h (188mph). At 75mph, you'll get more downforce putting a laptop in the back seat than the rear wing in the up position would generate. At top...

I highly doubt that wing, up or down, creates any meaningful downforce. It's there as a conversation piece more than anything.

Yea, that's the one thing I miss most from the CLK Black. All 4 windows down, the open feeling was unbeatable. The C Black's rear windows doesn't even open. :(


Correct, it's the newer platform....

Thanks. I was pretty torn when I sold the CLK Black last fall, 6 months later, all is right again! :D

Only difference in sound was the first 3 cranks to get going. I'm guessing the battery dropped to under 10V in such extreme weather. Once it kicked in, sounds completely normal. The LCD dash display...

Awesome, have fun! You won't be disappointed! Just remember, if it understeers, more throttle! :)

What part of the city do you live in btw? I'm up in Arbour Lake.

I'm driving my 996TT in Calgary as my winter car this year. Most fun I've EVER had, especially with PSM off. Feels invincible. Car loves the temps, makes awesome power and has ridiculous traction.

What's your budget like? I have a friend looking to sell his 996TT X50 with only 24,000 kms. Pristine car. I'm in Calgary too.

The daytime running lights mod just turns on the headlights at all times. The interior is still "dark" at night unless I flip the switch to on.

Ya, I wouldn't mind them being on all the time either. My problem is that when I leave and lock my car, I forget to turn them off from habit and they stay on the whole night. So an auto off I guess...

Automatic Lights?

Picked up my 2003 996 TT this week and was curious if there's a mod available where the lights can turn on automatically if it's dark? Coming from Mercedes, that was the greatest feature, never have...

I used SDS on my old 951. It's a great beginner system to learn how to tune. It doesn't do true 3D mapping, you tune for fuel on a rpm basis, then you tune the MAP pressure "multiplier" and that's...
