    996 Targa and RoW 030 lower suspension

    A friend of mine has a doubt:
    After doing a couple of questions, one of them to Porsche Germany, about the possibility of installing the M030 kit for a lower suspension on a 02' 996 Targa.
    According to my informations, it is not possible "because of the heavier roof". However, I understand that other Targa owners have this kit installed and I wonder if anyone could post his experience about that and, overall, if anyone has inputs about the compatibility of the M030 kit and the 996 Targa from Porsche.

    In Porsche Order Guides 996 (MY03 Carrera/Targa) the option code M030 is not allowed.


    The RoW M030 suspension kit, is not too much stiffer than the standard
    Perhaps it could be installed without any problem.
    I 'd like to know if someone could tell me something about this point, and explain what about the noise, crackings ,behaviour and well operating system of the sun roof

    Re: 996 Targa and RoW 030 lower suspension

    Technically, it's indeed possible, but not recommended.

    The Targa roof eventually starts creaking because steel and glass do not bear stress in the same way. Obviously, a harder suspension setup will increase the amount of stress that the roof goes through when you turn or drive on a pot hole.
    It won't be bad enough to prevent the roof from opening and closing, but it might start leaking. And it will definitely be noisy.

    Thanks
    It's a good explanation
    Besides it's the most logical consequence

    You're welcome. I hope your friend will keep his money... and invite you to a fine restaurant instead!
