Not as bad as you may think.

If you have adequate records, you may be able to recover high retail blue book plus sales tax. Something you could never achieve in the open market. I bought a barely used M-3 that some loon in a...

Unless you pick up an 03-05 996TT X50. Not the best looking Turbo, but cheap and with a flash and a Europipe, you're at 550hp. You can even pass the visual smog test. Of course I'm thinking of...

Rear tire wear

The posters above nailed it. Get upper control arms (dog bones) and adjustable toe links. Also check your rear sway bar for rubbing. The factory drop links are too short. Adjustable drop links are...

Major Props out to Wheel Enhancement and HRE

I bought a set of HRE forged wheels from Wheel Enhancement early this year. No issues. Out of the blue I get an email from David Martin as Wheel Enhancement indicating that HRE in doing their follow...

Will not work.

The rear tires are too tall. They will toast your front differential. The proper size is 315x25x19 which only Nitto makes anymore. I didn't check the offset but you should plan to roll your rear...

Tarets work

The factory eccentrics on the 996T do not have enough adjustment to deal with too much toe in or negative camber. They also work inversely of each other, dial out negative camber and it caused...

I gave up on 19". Could only find Nittos. Dropped backed down to once piece 18" HRE's. Lighter, handles better, stops faster, tires are cheaper. The roads are so bad down here, driving on 19" is a...

No highs, no lows, must be Bose

Agree. The Bose system is below average for a car in the price range. It also uses a lot of proprietary components that are difficult to modify. Best bet is to junk the entire system and start from...

18's to 19's back to 18's

Starting with factory hollow spokes, I "upgraded" to 19" three piece (suspension had already been changed out). They didn't handle or stop as well. The 19" drove the ABS and PSM (which had to be left...

Rear 19's on 996tt

If you're running an AWD 996t the correct fitment is 235x35x19f and 315x25x19r. 305x30/19 are too tall and will burn up your front diff. Unfortunately everyone but Nitto has discontinued 315x25x19...

GT2 conversion

I have thought about it. Conversion of this type usually lower resale value. But given my age, this may be the last Pcar so I'll die with it, resale be dammed.

Suspension upgrades first

Going from an 85 Carrera to a 95 993, the first thing that struck me was the ride height and soft suspension. Swapped everything out for Konis and M030 springs. The 996t was more of the same. Swapped...

Aftermarket exhaust won't pass visual

A more troubling situation is that all but one tire company has discontinued 315x25x19, the only rear tire that will work on a 996tt. Nitto still makes them (not rated very well). If they also...
