    Is that true about the chrome tips??? I didn't know that.

    It's true. The chrome tips are exactly the same as the stock tips except the 2 pipes that you see are chrome. I had them in my house and returned them but the whole installation is based on unloosing one bolt, pulling them off and putting the new ones on and tightening the same bolt. The bolt has a O shaped ring that tightens as you tighten the bolt. From what I've heard from other guys that have done the install the hardest thing is getting both sides even. Do one side first, compare it to the other before loosening both sides.

    Have a look under your exhaust. You should be able to see the bolt I'm talking about. That's it.

    You should be able to get the tips from your PORSCHE dealer. (It's PORSCHE part).

    Yeah, here they are. You can bolt the Carrera single tips on the S too, or vice versa, BTW

    Are there special equipment/tools needed to bolt it on myself? How much time is this DIY project?

    Any chance you know how much the chrome tips are?


    No special tools. All you need is a socket wrench.
    I'd say you're looking at 10-30 minutes. (depending on how anal you are about them ligning up)

    I paid $385 but that was with SUNCOAST and for whatever reason I don't see the tips on their site anymore:

    Re: POLL: Most controversial issue on this board

    Thanks for the info MMD.

    Can I ask why you returned the chrome tips? Too much bling bling for your the 911?

    Re: POLL: Most controversial issue on this board

    Where is the ''Boxster is better than 911'' option???

    Now thats controversial.

    You'll all bite cos you know its true........

    Re: POLL: Most controversial issue on this board

    JZ - how about Cayman is better than 911? Or, Corvette is better than 911?

    Clearly, I didn't want to start any real wars!!

    I think we forgot 1 option for the poll wich is

    "Should we or not pay a visit to Nick Berry and explain him personally why Porsche is so much better than Ferrari"


    Luv Ya Nick...


    Paulo, Porsche makes a good car. Just TOO MANY of them.

    The poll should have asked

    1. Does Porsche produce too many look alike cars?

    2. Does Porsche have too many models?

    3. Does Porsche have a design department and if so when is the last time they designed a model that was sexy and interesting?

    4. Does Porsche overcharge for performance and accessory options?

    5. Does Porsche resale value have a floor in the the US?

    I could go on but what is the point?

    By the way, can you post some nice big pics of your car when you get those Carrera Classics, tooner? Because imho, with your combination of GTSilver/Terracota/Classics, you have the best looking 997 on this board.

    Thanks Danny G...
