Guys I'm on the hunt for a set of Mk 1 springs and either a CR220 or CDR 220 996 stereo if anyone has anything.

Cheers

Cam, I ended up installing one of these Continental units in my car, as the PO had installed a modern thing I couldn't operate 🙂  I didn;t even try to locate a CD220 in the end.  Continental looks the part with orange display, has the handsfree phone which was my no 1 priority.  Not overly sure how it sounds to someone on the other end, as there sure is a fair bit of engine noise, even with the stock exhaust 😁

Looks good mate - what model is it?

There's several similar ones, depending on what features you want.  Also check pricing on Ebay.

Pretty much plug and play,  a bit of mucking around to get the microphone up the A pillar, but all good...

Hey Cam, I've just installed one of these Continentals in my 944 too - great 'oem looking' unit with all the functionality you need.  They won't run an amplifier or big, big speakers, but great for day-to-day and using a phone hands free.

There is also a unit with a DAB upgrade as well for an extra $100

Hi Cam,

You can still buy them new through Design911 (who are currently having a black Friday sale). Expensive but the option I took rather than trying to find 20 Year old ones in usable condition. (price was Ok, Aus tax & duty was BS)

In retrospect PCM may have been the best option.

996.1 GT3 Front
PART NUMBER: 996 343 531 91
SPRING RATE: 35N/mm 200lbs/in

996.1 GT3 Rear
PART NUMBER: 996 333 531 91
SPRING RATE: 65N/mm 370 lbs/in

Thanks Windsor, looks like they have rears but not fronts. Probably still cheaper than PCA pricing though by the looks!

 

They had both in Feb (had to go to Porsche Germany to fulfill my order), their part numbers were as follow: (p.s. they are genuine H&R with Porsche Part numbers)

Here is the latest status of the items in your order.
