Your 996 - how modded is modded?

Recommended Posts

This seems to be the logic with more and more insurers that the purchase price is max value covered by the insurer. My 997 S man coupe I purchased 18 months ago for $ 90k with 50000 km is not replaceable for that coin atm. Porsche insurance would only go to 90k max.

Not sure why this has turned into an insurance thread.  You need to tell the insurer about modifications if you want them to payout on them in the event of a claim.

interestingly on reading the quote I got from Porsche Insurance I saw that they are underwritten by MB insurance.  MB insurance also provided me with a quote on the same specifications just $400 perannum cheaper.  I asked Porsche about any extra benefit insuring with them over MB - I insured with MB.........

Why did the lady swallow the fly? 

Because she was:

  • in a convertible
  • the driver was in 2nd gear
  • while taking a tight left hand turn
  • she was the wife of said driver
  • all the while screaming to slow down
  • and that your honour is how the fly ended up in her mouth?

Further to @Jason E  if you inherited or were gifted a car or even won a Shannon’s give away . What then ..

all the mods on my 996.2 , that I was able to remember, at time of insuring were duly noted 

So how many modded 996’s, even 986 going to the Luftwasser ball ?

I have the OEM short sifter i believe. I just dont like the way it feels stiff...ill see how she feels after the flywheel and clutch change but it just feels stiff and notchy... not what i was expecting.. I like real smooth straight shifts.. this feels like it has a crooked gated shift :S.

All metal parts, no plastic, no slop and has three positions so you can adjust how 'short' you want your short shift to be

Recaro Gt3 seats

Gemballa Coilovers 

Hollow Spoke 997 GT3RS wheels 19inch

If I don't name the installer I can probably tell the story. I'm in the process of trying to achieve compensation. 

 

Essentially I arranged install of a new roof through a long standing trimmer located in South East QLD. They quoted the works and said they could do it "we had a Ferrari here yesterday". When I collected the car the same trimmer (owner) was explaining that the youtube videos are wrong..YOUTUBE?? 

Long story short it then cost double the cost of the original install to have a Porsche trained specialist repair all the cross threaded screws, stripped wires and busted mechanisms. Be very careful who works on your 911! The install of a new roof has a very direct and repeatable install process. Not a job for a first timer. The original trimmer was also not careful with my car when installing the roof and 2 days after I picked it up the roof got stuck down and stayed down until it was repaired by my indy Porsche shop. Interestingly the guy that sorted my roof, also rebuilt the 3.4 engine for the previous owner of my car, installed my coilovers and exhaust and generally is an expert of the highest order. 5 Stars!

Good to hear you now have it sorted. Now it's time to enjoy the car..!

And, given your positive experience with the independent Porsche workshop who sorted it, you should mention them by name. It may help others needing someone trusted.

So I'm about to start further modifications as the VF Engineering supercharger arrived from the US yesterday... :)
