What options would you consider must have on a 3.6 manual car.

I am looking at a car with the following

Extended navigation module
Telephone module
Sport Chrono Package Plus
Universal audio interface

Porsche Vehicle Tracking System
19-inch Carrera Sport wheels
Cruise control

Is there anything important missing?

Definitely would be nice but not a deal breaker for me. Just want to make sure I am not missing anything obvious.

I'm a big fan of heated seats, but they can be retrofitted.

Do all 997.2 non S's have Litronic/HID lights?

If not, you'll be wanting them.

I think the spec of that 3.6 is reasonable as many dont have chrono. sports seats are nice but again like PSE shouldn't be a deal breaker . PASM is over rated and the set up on non PASM cars is quite nice . Thumb Thumb

No PASM and 19s is something you’d want to try first. Some find it a bit firm.

Floor Floor I can only assume Iain you have no piles or fillings Grin Grin mmmm mind you, you do live in Sussex where all the money is, so maybe thats where all the road repair budget has been spent Grin Grin Grin have to say the DSC module has totally changed my PASM and its now quite comfortable in Sport and less wallowy in std.

I bought one, I would have liked sports seats (with the little wings at the shoulders).

Mine has no PASM & 19’s so has quite a high stance (noticeable when next to other 911’s). Ride is fine though.

My preference is no rear wiper/ no sunroof.

PSE would have been nice to have, but have gone for H&S + gundo

If you’re near South Derby you’re welcome to come out in mine.

My humble opinion on Gen 2 options:
- PASM, don't rate it - you're better off with revised suspension (caveat: I haven't experienced that DSC mod)
- sports seats - nice to have but the standard seats are fine
- larger 19" wheels - yes probably a must have but they do give a firmer ride than 18" of course
- sun roof - I hate them with a passion!
- Bose - not worth the money, simply because you'll want to hear the engine/exhaust
- Sports Design wheel - yes a must have for me, you really don't need multifunction controls
- universal interface thingy - dunno really, I just want radio, and my iPod, don't care about Bluetooth etc. but that's just me. I navigate using an obsolete thing known as a paper map
- Sports Chrono - must have with PDK, can't see the point with manual
- cruise control - never use it
- heated seats - never use them, if it's cold I'm wearing a coat anyway
- PSE - not great on a Gen 2, you need a proper aftermarket exhaust system

There's much to be said for a bone stock 3.6 Carerra 2 that you tweak to suit your own tastes; it's what I did. Disclaimer: all of the above is my opinion and should not be relied upon by third parties. Other opinions are available, please read T&C's, UK only, over 18's only, subject to status.

Both car being sold by non OPC dealers.

I am happy to pm links to the cars if anybody wants to see them, but dont want to post publically in case somebody jumps in

Haha Phil, you make it sound like you have a dedicated bacon sarnie supplier on tap and keeping you fed through the day!
"Good morning Mr Phil, your eleven o' clock butty is now ready. Your usual sauce, Sir?"
"Thank you my man, I'm on my way, I'm in the Bentley today."
"Very good Sir."
