My sister told me the same thing.
Btw, I though it was still leaking because of a coolant smell from the new rad and the level kept falling. Turned out the rad and AC condenser was full of coolant and the system was almost empty. It took about 10liters.

LOL I just started reading your thread as an ex 930 (see sig) now AC cobra owner looking to get back into a P car. Seems we all share some common taste as I’ve also been tempered by a mates E55 AMG.

Still getting used to the 996. I'm saving money for the seemingly inevitable remaining radiators, tires, coolant hose pinning, water pump and rear spoiler.
I have done some search but couldn't find if anyone has grounded their radiators to slow or stop corrosion?
Has anyone tried those GT2 rear decks from EBay?
The E55 has impressed me with its outstanding reliability, versatility, and truly impressive performance. I know the newer AMG models are faster but definitely not cheaper to buy and maintain.

Pulled door panel today to see what's what with the window regulator. Found about 10mm play in the cable. I put a mini hose clamp at the regulator end behind the speaker. Done. Now it drops properly.

After "passing" a Prius vigorously , coolant leak again!! This time the upper rad hose. I'm really getting good at this. Now I repair without removing the front bumper. This time drained the system from the front rads and engine drains, and raised the back when refilling. Let's see how long this repair lasts.

I have heard that the radiators are a "maintenance item" at $1500/set you'd think they'd last as well as 944 radiators. But no.

I wanted to add: once you have it sorted, drive it hard and you will notice the car "wakes up." It has 'learning ability' in the ECU and if the PO drove too gently, the car learned to underperform.

Hi y'all. Getting a clunking, something loose noise at the front end over small bumps like pothole covers and pebbles and cracks. Brakes not steering don't affect it. I checked that all the front gear is secured.
Any suggestions?

The only thing I found was one of the coolant pipe clamps was loose. Let's hope that was it.
Btw from the look of the the strut should be able to lowered into the hub carrier. Has anyone done this?

A body shop should be able to repair that with a plastic welder.

Finally got around to doing to front strut bearings, bump stops and boots. They were stupid easy to do. With an impact gun I undid the strut top nut, popped out and wound down the spring, so low tension, pulled the piston down, swapped the parts. Total time 1hour both sides. So far, no more noise from front suspension. Then the headlights donít come on.

Did that include paint repair? For example, I had my 987 front bumper repaired and repainted and it was $1200. Same car had someone reverse into it and dented the same bumper. Couldn't be repaired this time and the cost for a new bumper, paint and a right Xenon headlight was just under $5k.

Wow. Guess I got a good deal. Yes it included paint. I did the bumper re/re. Checked the fuses and relays and ordered a headlight switch. Here it cost $250.
