I have one on my turbo - great piece of kit, transformed the handling of the car enormously (I'm running on TechArt sports springs with stock PASM dampers too) - highly recommended Thumb

It’s odd to find a modification that receives such universal praise from so many quarters. It must be some piece of kit. Might have to add it to my shopping list for when I get my 997.2 C2S.

Is the suspension on the 997.2 C2S largely the same as the previous generation 997.1 C2S?

I believe you'll need to buy the 3-axis accelerometer too (the 997 turbos have them built in from the factory whereas the 997 C2S don't)

I think its only Gen 1 Turbos that have it while other Gen 1s do not. All Gen 2s have the acceleromithingy. ICBW.

It’s the 997.1 GT3 that needs the 3-axis accelerometer, so you were not too far off thumbsup

"acceleromithingy"

"accel thingy"

"accelermathingy"

"accelothingy"



Floor These are all far better names than plain old "accelerometer" ...

The marketing guys missed a trick there thumbsup

I have an account with MyUS.com which allows you to import stuff from the States if a company doesn’t ship worldwide. I was trying to see if one of these units could be imported direct from the US for less than £1,000.

The unit price converts to £895 and budget shipping comes to £24. This gives us a total £919. I assume that 20% import tax will also be applied which will bring the total to £1,102.80. Unfortunately, not much of a saving over the UK price of £1,194.

Ken from 9e offered a 5% discount above, not worth the trouble of importing yourself for the small difference.

problem is you would need about 12% to get it under 1k which Ken might have the margin to do if a group buy was done. Thumb

Yup, fair point, we’ll made. All 997.1 models, with the exception of the turbo need the 3-axis accelerometer thumbsup

I got mine from 9e at a reasonable price and with great service btw. I know others who’ve got there’s direct and are equally happy. Whichever route you go (on a £50-£60k car what’s c£100 here or there?) I’d recommend just getting one thumbsup

If there are 5 orders I can get better discount - if there are more than 10 even more so if someone wants to start a list ( no commitments at this stage ) I’ll sort out a deal that you will all be happy with.

Got one of these for my 997.1 Turbo in the last group buy. Great bit of kit and well worth the spend. Makes the car feel much more compliant when pressing on. Also good that it remembers which setting the PASM was in, so doesn’t default to the stiffer setting when the Sport button is pressed (A small thing I know, but an incremental improvement on OE). Ken at 9E was great to deal with and I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend. worship
