    997S vs. 996 C4S (Pics)

    Just for comparison to RC's black beauty here`s my pure black C4S with lowering -20 mm (H+R springs) and +15 mm wheel spacers at both axes. But in my opinion the two cars CAN'T be compared, because they are both special in their own way. What do you guy`s think? But if you really want to reach a decision, I also post pictures of my former 993 C4S to increase that task ...

    Help needed, i only can post one picture per topic!

    That 993 C4S looks best to me, especially with the clear Euro lenses and lack of bumperettes (I had to pay to have my 993C2 modified like this...)

    Re: 997S vs. 996 C4S (Pics)

    Hi Andreas,

    the wheel spacers seem to do wonders on that car! It looks much better than most others I have seen so far - without them.

    Definately these are both great cars and I would be happy to have one of them!

    Greetings!

    I'm with you on this one

    Re: 997S vs. 996 C4S (Pics)

    I'd put a 997 Carrera S, 996 C4 S and a 993 C4 S one next to each other and take a picture from the rear. A huge surprise awaits you.
    I already saw a 997 Carrera S next to a 996 C4 S this way and funny, the 997 looked slightly wider.
    Of course your car is lowered and uses wheel spacers, this is like wearing a wonderbra. But it looks good of course.

    Re: 997S vs. 996 C4S (Pics)

    I know that the 997 seems to be wider because of the 993-like rear. I'm curious about the look of the 997 4S respectively of the TURBO (which will be mine someday). Concerning the WONDERBRA: The point is, that the car looks great even without the wheel spacers but perfect with it.

    I wish we could say that relative to the real users of wonderbra`s

    By the way 1: I tested 18 mm wheel spacers at the rear axle but this is too much!

    By the way 2: My 993 had no lowering but 21 mm (!) wheel spacers at the rear axle WITH TÜV!

    Re: 997S vs. 996 C4S (Pics)

    rc ,does your car look that low?

    Re: 997S vs. 996 C4S (Pics)

    Have a look at my girlfriend's...

    I love the shape!!

    Re: 997S vs. 996 C4S (Pics)

    Hello everyone, been around a while, but first post.

    Stupid question, but are spacers hard to install? Or is it something a dealer must do?

    Re: 997S vs. 996 C4S (Pics)

    its easy, take off the wheel and put it on -

    Re: 997S vs. 996 C4S (Pics)

    ok - sorry for the dumb question -- What are spacers?

    Re: 997S vs. 996 C4S (Pics)

    These things; check the attatchment

    ok, nice thingys....what do they do?

    Re: 997S vs. 996 C4S (Pics)

    Wheel spacers go between the wheel and the hub to move the wheels/tires out closer to the outside of the fender. Makes a wider wheel track because of increased wheel offset.

    Re: 997S vs. 996 C4S (Pics)

    That's one nice C4S....

    Re: 997S vs. 996 C4S (Pics)

    great! Do they invalidate the warranty or anything like that? Will the dealer install or is this strictly after-market?

    Thanks,

    Re: 997S vs. 996 C4S (Pics)

    I highly doubt they would void the warranty. My friend that works at a infiniti dealer says if they cant trace the problem to the aftermarket product then it doesnt matter.

    Re: 997S vs. 996 C4S (Pics)

    I got the 15mm spacers from TECHART (Germany) and they had been installed by my local porsche dealer, so there shouldn't be any problems with warranty.

    Attention: It's NOT "take off the wheel and put it on", as TopherV said , because the inner edges of the rear fenders need to be adapted!

    Eh my car was easy to do , Are you rubbing?

    Re: 997S vs. 996 C4S (Pics)

    RC what's wrong with wonderbra
    993 is the most beautiful IMHO
