Sorry to hear about the accident. You learned the hard way the Porsche mantra of "never lift." And why you should always carry insurance unless you're driving something like my old '77 Ford.

Yes, talk to Damon. You can find him on 6speedonline pretty much daily too. I've gotten more tires from them than I can count over the years, including full winter sets, and I've always been happy.

I'm not a fan of the Mk1 aerokit either 100plus. It doesn't look bad in pictures here, but in person, never really liked it.

When I had a lot of issues with my old 996 C4, Porsche gave me a free minor and major service. Those would've cost me roughly $1000. I had to complain a good amount to the regional PCNA rep (at the...

I'm glad to have one on my G-wagen. Works like a charm. Much faster than the defroster!

I'm always partial to strapping the wheels when trailering. The suspension is meant to absorb bumps, so why does it matter if the car bounces a little on a trailer? You already have the tires and...

It would be really amazing if they all backed out together and then all together, totally backed out of their holes entirely after you stopped the car. There's 6 bolts and even if one was holding the...

I still have yet to see any dyno results in my 7+ years experience with the 996 intakes that show any real difference in HP by adding an intake versus the stock paper filter.

No offense intended, but nobody on an internet forum is going to be able to tell you anything about a car they can't see! Take it to a Porsche dealer and get a PPI (Pre-Purchase Inspection) done.
