The upside is most modern sat navs will tell you the camera is there (Waze even inform you where portable ones are if other drives have notified them).

Long time, no post...

I've managed to do a few things with the car this summer, despite not being able to drive it much more than 200ish miles. I've had the frunk resprayed along with the aero kit components. Mounting was fairly straight forward. I found the hardest part was to remove the original factory double sided tape from the side skirts. I probably spent somewhere between 3 and 4 hours just to make sure I got every little bit of it before applying the new tape. Some new, decent automotive tape (3M or similar) seemed almost impossible to source from a local store, so I ended up getting some from the body shop that sprayed the aero kit parts. I am very happy with the look of the car. I also added the lip for a little personal touch.

A few days ago, the ABS started to interfere for no apparent reason. I'm suspecting a sensor on it's way out. I had the ABS reluctor rings cleaned last spring, but I'm still going to check them.

The rings can split and cause havoc.

I am aware, that's why I still hold them as suspects Smile
Unfortunately, I will probably not be able to do anything with it right now. We're in the middle of refurbishing our kitchen and bathroom, so I'll have a hard time arguing for some time off to tinker with the car wack Besides, it's hibernation time, so it will have to wait until spring. I suppose the easiest way will be to partially pull the drive shafts in order to get a good, clear view of the reluctor rings?

Symptoms are: ABS interfering, regardless of speed (needs to be confirmed). No lights flashing. Sometimes, you can tap the brake pedal lightly without the ABS kicking in.

I've they've split you can easily see it without removing anything.

I inspected and cleaned the ABS reluctor rings on both sides of the front axle today, but nothing changed. For various reasons, I'm beginning to suspect the left front speed sensor. Will have to sort it out later, as the car is being stored for the winter this friday.

It's a doddle to test them if you have a multi-meter. Don't even have to remove the wheel if you can reach round and disconnect it.

4x4 my favourite! wish I got a 996 C4 over my 997S..

A centre console delete would suit great IMHO, and would delete car phone kit at the same time

Alex: I'll get right to it if I have time this weekend. My wife will probably try to enforce some sort of refurbishment related work Razz

biscuit: It's never too late to swap Mr. Green The phone is deleted, but I'm having a hard time finding a RH side piece to the center console in the right color (metropol blau). I'm considering the full console delete.

Y2K: Thanks! I am very pleased with the look. New wheels will also be considered at a later stage, they will have to do for now. A set of Mk1 GT3 ones will fit the bill Mr. Green BTW, nice picture with a nice looking car. Looks like Heddal stave church?

...and sorry in advance for my "yank-like" way of writing (color, center etc) Mr. Green I guess it's the result of american influence from books and television.
