#2065 of 2175 Frameless Wiper Blades for 95-98 Porsche 911's
Feb 14, 2010 (3:30 pm)
The 1995-1998 911's have that 15" passenger side wiper blade which is fine until you try to upgrade to the newer-style, frameless beam blades. 15" beam blades virtually don't exist and 14" are difficult to find. The only option I've found is the 'Trico NeoForm Beam Blade' which comes in 14" (OE are 15" but you won't notice the 1/2" difference on each end). They also have the 18" for the drivers side. Can get them online.

#2070 of 2175 Now in the Porsche Club !
Mar 06, 2010 (9:52 am)
Had a Infiniti FX45 but finally traded up to a new 2008 C4S . Just got lucky! Found this Porsche in the showroom of a Porsche dealer 40 miles away from my local dealer. It had only 65 original miles on it . Showroom condition but somehow it never sold. Must have come in late in 2008 and the 2009's were getting in the showroom so no one bought it.
Had them change the oil immediately since it has been sitting on the showroom floor for more than a year . Porsche recommends you change the oil with in so many miles but no longer then a year.
Has a lot of options on it . Upgrade stereo, Porsche crest on headrest, full leather, navigation, etc. Dealer gave me their cost on putting "Clear Bra". $50.00 cheaper then if I would have had it done by the vendor ( priced prior to going into the dealership ) . Just to let everyone know, dealer mark up was about $200.00 more then what the vendor was going to charge me !
This car feels like it is made from a block of steel ! Solid and no problems ! Fast and smooth ! We'll keep everyone posted on how the quality is on the C4S.
So far I'm living the dream ! 524 miles and counting .... can't wait to pass 2000 miles and letting the 355 horses out to run !
Original MSRP was $102,000 but got it for much less .

#2073 of 2175 Porsche 911 - How long will it last?
Mar 09, 2010 (6:31 am)
I've recently come across a '99 Porsche 911 for sale, Beautiful car, clean car fax, no accidents and full service history. There are a few blemishes here and there but the card has almost 130k miles on it.
It's selling for around $20k and as much as I love the car, I'm struggling with how much longer the car will last. I live very close to a Porsche dealership and max do around 10k miles a year driving. This would be a second car so I couldn't imagine running it that much.
Wanted to see if anyone had any info on how long a 911 would typically last.

Given just the info we have here, I"d be inclined to say "no" for a number of reasons.
My personal opinion is that the car is overpriced, and being a 996 and not a 993, I don't feel this engine type has demonstrated the degree of ultra-longevity that the 993 aircooled engine has demonstrated. Also early 996s were troublesome at times, and the fact that Porsche itself uses a 993 basic engine case to power their most exotic examples used for racing, etc, Id be inclined to say 130K is closer to the end of the engine's life rather than its middle, as would be with the 993.
