I bought an M030 kit for my 996 C2. Cant wait to get it fitted now. Also bought front and rear drop links, and suspension mounts. Should be an improvement on my 89k mile suspension. thumbsup

I did the same on mine. It feels a whole lot better than with the 18 year old 60k original setup. I got mine from Gert at Carnewal when the £ was worth a bit more against the €.

Recently had the kit fitted to my C4, I had the springs changed for h&r -25mm. Nine excellence done the work, can't recommend them enough. It has made such a difference

No problem, I bought it from Porsche Teesside, and with PCGB discount it was £892. Which after shopping around, I believe is a good price. Looking forward to having it fitted. Thumb

Is this it P000.044.500.08

Porsche did not recognise as M030, it was called sports suspension retrofit. My part number on receipt is P.000.044.27. my car is a 2002 C2. C4 will be different part number. This kit lowers car by 10mm. Also another line says
N/STK 000540/Retrofit kit.

Very cool. Good to know also that you can buy this from Porsche.

Are you fitting it yourself?

My 99 C4 has this kit fitted apparently. The previous owner bought it from Porsche when it was on special offer.

I noticed a receipt in the service history of my recent purchase for a code 7581 sports suspension kit, it was dated June 2010 but according to MOT in folder that was only 19,000 miles ago.
I haven't had the opportunity to drive car yet as engine is away at Hartech for some engine work but hopping this makes the car feel well screwed together.

Thanks for this post - been shopping around for the kit and found various prices but this appears the cheapest.

I've got the M030 kit already but the front struts are corroded so need replacing. It's actually cheaper to buy the full kit than it is to just replace the front struts.

Can you not just buy a pair of Bilstein B4/B6 for "sports suspension" cars? They do advertise them for that fitment.

These really aren't that hard to fit yourself, guys. I did it and I have had no mechanic training whatsoever. Rears remarkably simple.

Use the Paragon "101 Projects for your 996" book/website and you'll save a ton of money, as well as perhaps get to keep the nice jack and socket set you bought (with the savings) to do the job. Thumb

It's also very manly. Very Happy
