switch should be easy to source from a boneyard from any 911 w/ that option, I don't believe they're Sport specific - just semi-power / heated vs. not (fully power is forward/backward for lower & upper seat as well as the up/down on those shown for the front and rear of the lower cushion)...
Good to hear, I wasnt up to speed on the power options. Thats super helpful.

89 bucks on fleabay or 104 from our host (which to support the forums I will choose).

I haven't taken that switch apart, so I am not certain in this specific case, but many switches like that are simply dirty or corroded contacts. I have taken many a switch apart, cleaned them and put them back together. Good as new! If you are going to pull the switch to replace it, give it a shot.

A couple of the non-functional lights in my car were similar. The bulbs were fine, but they just needed to be pulled, contacts cleaned up/tightened and put back together. The front hood light, a rear license plate light and the interior driver side light were all that way.

Good to hear. My 635csi has the same behaviors, always remove/clean/re-install before replacing. Its amazing how well built things were in Germany in the 80s. Hell, the memory functions and power headrests still work on my BMW.

Fun fact, most of the parts on my BMW say West Germany.

have been refraining from asking fer pics of yer 635 heh heh

neat car

I'd not eff w/ yer headrests too much, if the worm drive / gear are anything like those in my e28... destined to walk the shaft out of the gear 8-). Which always occurs only at the headrest's exact apogee of furthestest possable extension, of course. (fear not, my //S8's headrests were the same story... sad).

I've learned not to touch certain things (no, not that, touchaway there). I keep awaiting the day my "convenience entry" steering wheel (pronounced fukkinannoying) in this M5's eff's the pooch... of course in the Buick Roadmaster northmost position. Can only turn it off w/ speshul tewl of course. I'm a special tool, but not that special.

boy, you'll have the Trifecta of Incessant Neediness there with that fleet of yours lol... promises to keep you - um - busy

btd(ing)t... wtf's wrong w/ us folk?

huge congrats, great find

love the rear flaps! Some closeups of one when you have a chance? Enjoy the aesthetic, and the functionality... I DRIVE mine, and that area gets plastered most esp. mit sticky rubber.

Dig the '6er, the wheels are pretty neat - a hair slammed for my tastes but I'm conservative. Damn you westcoasters, everything's so clean.

Allroad... glutton 8-)

welcome to the insanity

Looks like you have a full B&B system. Headers/No Kitty/Muffs. I’ve got the same and it is LOUD! Like can’t hear the blinkers click loud. How loud is yours?

Congrats on the hips!

Awesome work up there in the PNW. That's a great looking 930, congrats Seems like everyone has a love of fine German cars of other marques too. Love that E24 Shark!

Just had a staring contest between my two treasures ..

Ill get some closeups of the flaps once we get some decent weather. The sixer looks slammed to some folks but I have owned allot lower. The great thing about the six is even at its ride height it goes down the road allot smoother than my Allroad. No joke, its that good.

Maybe my perception is a bit warped but the B&B system isnt all that loud to me. But as you mentioned, I noticed as well that I cant hear the blinker switch. It has a very deep sound.

There is definitely a learning curve to driving it but and even bigger curve to driving it quickly. Unfortunately the weather here isnt cooperative right now.

Drove it to work this morning (no way I could not). Surprisingly the 4spd box is easy going. No cold synchro issues at all. I do find that getting it to find first from a stop can be tricky but otherwise its super easy. Allot easier to work with then say the 5spd in the E24. It doesnt want to be rushed as you say but I feel like that also a function of the huge throw. I think it will likely get a Wevo unit to shorten it up. I am a short guy and second hit the the seat bolster. All together though I can see why people put big miles on these motors. Its real easy to row around town. Again, surprisingly easier than the E24.

Suspension wise I am a little surprised how harsh it is. While the rear struts are recent and the front right is brand new hitting expansion joints in the road is pretty loud. Very similar to my rabbit on coils wound all the way down. It still stays composed however. I think I need to check the tire pressures first.

I am a size 9 shoe so I have plenty of room in the footwell. The bottom hinged pedals will take some getting used to, the clutch feels awkward to operate since you end up pressing down to engage it. The first service will include an adjustment since the clutch is brand new. It is a little weird not have a dead pedal area but honestly...dont care.

I did notice it loading up a bit on the freeway. Initially it worried me, feels like the plugs are too cold. Flat footing it in 4th it seemed to struggle to light off. Going into third it was a bit better but still not as smooth as it was previously. A couple of blasts in first and second however and it seemed to clear right up. Not sure if its an actual problem thats developed or its just the nature of the beast. John's diagnosis of warmer plugs and replacing the coil seemed relevant. On the list for the next service. I love how loud it is when the wastegate opens. Pure porn. Filthy, dirty porn.

The exhaust leak is a bigger issue then I expected. Normally I would just live with it but there are significant fumes in the cabin so I am not going to wait to have it done. A different exhaust entirely (Rarlyl8 unit) will have to wait till the fall.

All together, no complaints. Its looking like this will be a really great car to live with, which I have to admit is a bit of a surprise. Whoever in Germany designed the HVAC system in this car must have come straight out of ze asylum. A total of 7 different adjustment sliders/knobs/fans. Works awesome if you love a foggy windshield lol. I think that will get better with time as the car drys out after living in the garage as opposed to outdoors where it has been for the last two years.

Its weird not going through my morning ritual of classifieds and CL RSS feeds. Instead I am creating a service appointment schedule with checklists.

Here are the ladies, all tucked in.

Very nice! I've enjoyed reading about your search - I've only had mine about 16 months so the anxiousness while waiting for the PPI results is still very fresh in my head. You're goin gto love the car - so different from your other cars. From everything.

Nice 635, too. I've always loved those - and E28 5's. And E30 3's....

Enjoy!

So the first 24hrs of 911 Turbo ownership....lets first assess the current status. Its 8:30pm, I am still at work, I am covered in oil, I smell like a I just crawled out of a catalytic converter and Im soaked. Well how did I get here (I love The Talking Heads)?

So when I test drove the car the owner mentioned that oil level gauge was inconsistent and often wrong. I think ok, no problem, manually check oil always and get gauge fixed at first service as a backup. Yesterday I note that gauge reads at about a third. I get in the car this morning and note the dollar coin size puddle of oil underneath the tank, slightly annoyed but I think to myself, "Self, you own a 911 now, this is part of the charm". Drive to work and note the gauge is reading lower than yesterday, not alarmed but concerned. I decide to turn down any requests for rides and resolve to check the dipstick before I leave.

At 6pm I go down to the dark basement of the parking garage where there are safe spots and for the 5th time today to stare at car. I say, "hey Self, lets check that ol'dipstick before the ride home". Consult manual just to be sure and find out you should check the oil with the engine running. Never heard of that before but hey, part of the charm. Fire up the car, let it warm for a minute or two and consult where the manual says the level should be. Remove oil cap, withdraw dipstick and oh ****. Oil is just barely on the tip. Put dipstick back in....!!!! The dipstick misses its little guide and into the bowls of the oil tank it goes. AAAHHHH! Run and shut the car down and think to myself, "Self, are you a total ****** moron?". I spent a few seconds trying to reassure myself that I did not just do quite possibly the stupidest thing in the world, once all doubt was removed that indeed I had I got out the flashlight. Impossibly deep in the tank neck lay the dipstick, in a panic stick fingers into sed tank, nope, that aint happening.

At this point somewhere all Porsche 930 owners stopped what they were doing and twitched.

Ok, we can fix this. We need the coat hanger I always keep in my emergency kit in all my cars (old VW MK1 owner habit)....."Self, you remember thinking that you would put the kit together tomorrow right?". Ok, we can still fix this. Go back up to my office, get a heavy duty paper clip and a 3.5mm stereo cable. Form paperclip into a hook on one end and attach other end to cable (lord knows at this point I wasn't taking the risk of dropping the damn paper clip in). Back to the garage, secure safety cable, insert hook, remove dipstick. Pheww. Make note to add paper clips to emergency kits.

Well that was a close one, lets go home......crap still low on oil. Check service history and note the last weight and type of oil at the last change (2500miles ago natch). Walk to autoparts store in pouring rain (hey Self, hows that whole "I live in Seattle I dont need a rain jacket" working out for you?). Purchase 4 quarts, a flexi funnel and some shop rags. Walk back and make note to add rain jacket to emergency kit.

While the oil tank filler is not in a terribly awkward position we all have a little trouble hitting the hole the first time right fellas, nbd, happens to everyone at some time. Wipe excess with quite possibly the least absorbent material to ever lie and call itself a rag. Ahh, perfect, now we are all coated in oil. Fire up car, recheck and proceed to add about a quart, let the shame, guilt. fear of damage wash over me. Check the gauge in the car and low and behold, smack dab in the middle.

Apologize to gauge and car for ever doubting it and vow to never again, so much shame. I end up taking the car around the parking garage to get some heat into it. Turn all four levels into a confined space where you would not dare light a match. I then proceeded to check the oil level about 25 more times. Each time cursing myself and whoever designed a rag which only transfers oil to your hands.

So in short, a humbling day. Its good to be humble. In retrospect, still a great day but I am not home yet. Thanks for tuning in.
