Howdy Friends, I have a once working cruise control that has stopped. I'm stumped as to how to fix it. Is this pretty easy for the regular Porsche shop to fix or is it pretty difficult? Is it…Continue

"Hi Rodrigo, I think ultimately it did do some good. I'm not sure how much or if it was worth the cost. The engine in my 968 had some poor seals, and that is where I invested most of my money. My car regularly got well over 30 miles per gallon…"

"Hi Jeff, The batwing goes under the nose of the car and improves down force and engine cooling as well as protects the front of the engine. It's kind of shaped like a bat wing."

"I know what you mean, Joe. I keep thinking about maybe getting a 911 someday, but the 968 is so good, a drive in it quickly reminds me why I don't need a 911. I think I may have some expensive repairs coming up. An oil leak appears to be…"

"I bought my 1994 968 coupe in '06 (on eBay, no less), and just sank $4K into shocks, struts, brakes, tires and motor mounts, all at once. Wow!  I'd thought it was good when I got it, but this is ridiculous. It's 10 in the evening…"

"Hi Rich, My problems have been mostly with the display. I wonder if yours are associated with the sensor in that right mirror?   Thanks for contributing to the discussion. Good luck finding a fix for it.   Monte"

Rich Fine replied to Monte Olsen's discussion External Temp Display wanted
"Mine doesn't work either. I get seething like -38* for a split second then it goes blank. I know the sender is in the passenger side mirror but I don't see any damaged wires. I've pulled the display out as well and no issues there."

You were interested in the motor & trans out of a 165k cabriolets and said you would be "interested in knowing..." I have them. The engine had a broken timing belt so all the exhaust valves are bent and the head gasket was rotted out so the block was filled with water. Just thought I would ease your curiosity.

Hi Monte

One more thing, My car is a rag top. So I don't have rear wiper, I have a place that has one it's the same as the batwing. This company only deals with Porsche.

 

Thanks

Pete

Hi Monte

 

The trans. is a manual (6 speed) the motor has 165K. Like most batwings this one is in rough shape. I do have a place that has one. It was $200.00.

 

Thanks

Pete
