Aren't they just the standard (non 'S') wheels?


I think they’re called Carrera IV’s as far as I can tell. Pretty sure they came standard on the car as there were no wheel option codes on the option list. Been looking for a while and haven’t seen many, if any, 997.2s with those wheels

There’s a slight rattle from the exhaust area on start so it might be something loose rattling and resonating


That's probably your heat shields, either exhaust or coil pack heat shields, another thing that needs sorting on mine!

Been a long time lurker on 911uk but finally managed to bag myself a 997.2 manual. Pretty basic spec but I like it and hadn't seen many with 18" wheels like mine.

All seems good so far but have a little high pitch whine from the rear when driving and not sure what that might be, any ideas would be welcome!


Love the colour on this.

Enjoy in good health

They are the Carrera IV wheels. Popular fitment for winter tyres. Often upgraded on non-S cars, so not often seen.

Congrats on the purchase, and welcome to the forum.

I still love my manual c2 4 years on. They’re so rewarding.

Could the noise just be from the gearbox being close behind you? I noticed strange sounds when I first got mine, as it’s so different to my previous front-engined experience.

I think it may well be totally normal and my ears playing tricks on me. I'll keep a watch on it and try to get a recording of it at some point. If I get to the bottom of the issue, if there is one, I'll post on here again.

Also, thanks everyone for all their input and welcomes! Thumb

You could do worse than drop it over to an indy just to check it out - somewhere like Wrightune are doing a winter check at the mo.
Worth checking general condition underneath the noise, and maybe coolant / antifreeze conc.

A bit of an update on this. I took the car to Wrightune - they seemed like a pretty decent set up and really helpful. The guy there test drove the car and gave it a decent check over.

In the last few days I started noticed a vibration from the rear of the car which I thought was to do with a loose heat shield or something and wasn’t that worried about it. It happens only when the throttle is up and in the “off” position and I’m decelerating. On the test drive they said that it disappeared when the clutch was depressed (it does) so it’s probably gearbox related. He said that he didn’t know what it was but the first thing to do was to drain the gearbox oil and change it and it was probably a bearing. Does anyone have an idea what this might be?

They also noticed that the brake lines were corroded so badly where they came to the rear wheel arches and connected to the rear callipers that they could go anytime and also the front coolant pipes were really corroded and also could go anytime

I did have a PPI before I bought the car and the coolant pipes were picked up but the specialist who went over the car to fix some of the other issues found on the PPI said that they were corroded but not leaking so were fine. They didn’t mention the brake lines when they changed the discs and pads. The corroded brake lines were also not mentioned on the PPI report either. Are they easy to miss?

The dealer I bought it from has actually been really good so far with pretty much everything and I hope it continues that way

Any opinions on the above would be welcomed but I’ll update when if I find out what the actual issue is.

If you going to get the brake lines done I would go with braided brake lines also its very lightly that the you may find some seized and break so ensure the guys that do the job have access to a hellebore . Thumb

I’ve managed to get a recording of it. Excuse the terrible commentary but you can just about hear the noise between 4-5 seconds and again at 13-15 seconds on the clip below (it’s much louder in the car).

https://drive.google.com/file/d/1WFWemuvH-suF-3YjRNI4EA4IRn7tet70/view?usp=drivesdk

When I say “take your foot of the clutch” I mean accelerator and you probably need the volume up quite high. If anyone recognises what this is, I would really appreciate the info. It’s in at an Indy at the moment

Since I posted an update in late Nov, the car's been back at the dealer I bought it from (for nearly 3 weeks - don't ask) and also been to Northway Porsche near Reading to have some of the bits fixed.

I thought I would do an update in case anyone had a similar issue/s.

Rattle

After driving it quite a bit, I realised that I could make the rattle appear at certain RPMs with the clutch in or out - not the gearbox - phew. The symptoms were metallic vibration noise when decelerating down from about 3000 - 1500rpm with gear engaged. Same noise when revving and revs dropping between around 2400 - 2000 rpm

Northway diagnosed it as some loose baffles in the driver's side exhaust muffler and is not really a big problem at all thumbsup

Brake lines

These definitely needed changing so now I have a new set of rear brake lines, including the one which needed the gearbox out - I changed my clutch too. They said it's pretty rare for these brake lines to corrode but it might be worth anyone with 'seaside' cars just having a quick look over theirs, just in case.

I also got my coolant crossover pipes changed too

All in all, quite a bit of work for a relatively new (to me) car. The dealer got quite a bit of work done on it before I bought it to so for now I'm happy I've got a relatively sorted car and hopefully that will be it for a while!


Northway were great, really happy to talk and show you around the car and had time to talk on the phone as well. They also picked up some extra work for me too. I would definitely recommend them

There are a few niggles I have with the car which I would like to sort out, the first of which was the corroded wheel bolts. I followed the guide here http://www.911uk.com/viewtopic.php?t=101123 and I think they've come out really nicely. It was also pretty simple to do and cost about £5!

However, a couple of the bolts came out like the picture below. Not sure if they need replacing or not??

oh and it is the same car, the platinum silver metallic looks totally different in different light Smile

I like these wheels....there quite different but OEM...I'd think about keeping them on...or if you change to 19"'s keep them to put back on at some stage.

Fuch inspired, no doubt. I’d keep ‘em on and lower the car with some springs. Nice car Thumb
