    Couple of 997 questions

    Decided after much loitering I would post so be nice!

    I pick up my meteor grey 997 C2S on Thursday and had a few questions that I thought you knowledgable lot might be able to help me with:

    1. I'm currently driving an 03 996 C4 and was just wondering if anyone else had made the change from 4wd to 2wd and if there are any particular things I should look out for in terms of how the two cars are driven. I obviously test drove the 997 before placing the order and it was fantastic but you don't really get the feel of a car in half an hour.

    2. Just wondering if there was an aux input socket on the back of the PCM so I could run an ipod through a line-in cable?

    3 Does the PCM play MP3 CDs in the changer and/or headunit?

    Thanks in advance

    1) In the dry C2's are supposed to hadnle just as well as C4's...just make sure that if its very wet & greasy you remember you aint got 4 wheel drive no more!
    2) No aux socket..you want Ipod you need to go the way of the Denison Ice link or something like that..it has been mentioned on the board, so a such should bring up some good info.
    3) The single Cd in the PCM plays MPs's yes indeed!

    Re: Couple of 997 questions

    PCM headunit does play MP3 CDs.

    Re: Couple of 997 questions

    1) Do a search for a thread C2S vs C4S. It's all there!
    2) iPod? No way is there an Aux input. That would be too easy! You need a Dension solution.
    3) The PCM will play mp3 CDs but the 6 CD changer will not.

    With the PSM working as it should it is doubtful that you will notice any difference from your C4.

    Re: Couple of 997 questions

    997 C2S is so plnted that its very hard to feel a difference. Actually the turn in might feel more natural and neutral to you.

    I don't think I'd go that far--even with PSM engaged, you can swing the rear end out in a C2, which is darn near impossible except at track speeds/conditions in an AWD. And under hard acceleration, you can get a slight porpoising with the 997 C2 front end. None of this is unsettling, necessarily. But the two cars drive noticeably differently, and after a 996 C4, 996 Turbo and now the Club Coupe (X51 Carerra S)--I'd take the C2 all day long as long as you're not driving in very nasty conditions, like snow with proper winter tires.

    And on the plus side, the steering feel is lighter on the C2 than the AWD.
