    the tiptronic MBZ 722.6 gearbox is robust and yet won't burn a hole in your pocket when comes to maintenance compare to the 6 sp manual. In addition, you know this 996tt cannot be abused ever like the 996tt manual can with level 2 over revs. 996TT tip is the best bang for the buck today. Don't under estimate the tip!! Even the 993 and 964 tips prices are on the rise. Well maintained, low mileage 996tt tip prices will certain move along with the others!

    Has a DME report been done?

  • Hratcht (registered bidder) 4 monthsago

    @lucas_r302 I understand the boots completely. Says axles in the description so it threw me off. Thanks.

  • lucas_r302 (registered bidder) 4 monthsago

    @Hratcht pretty common on 996’s TT’s for the axle boots to start leaking and need replace/serviced. Most of them I’ve seen either had them replaced at some time or will need it at some point, common issue.

    @Abuong01 I will post more pictures tomorrow morning.

  • Abuong01 (registered bidder) 4 monthsago

    post additional pictures please, its good form to show the car properly for us to decide if we want to pursue it further.

  • Kwoodwo (registered bidder) 4 monthsago

    Also- if I remember correctly it has/had a k40 radar detector with a laser jammer installed in the front bumper.

  • Kwoodwo (registered bidder) 4 monthsago

    I owned this car 8 years ago. While 30k miles have been driven after my ownership, it was in great condition when I owned it.

    I bought it with the stereo already installed and will say that (if it is all still in there) it is still one of the best stereos I have ever heard in a car. Definitely not a hack job like most aftermarket stereos you see in 996s. The Bose stereo makes it difficult to modify correctly. This one was done properly.

    The rear spoiler was not functioning when I purchased it. Rather than replacing the hydraulics, I chose to remove the leaking hydraulics. Unless they have been replaced, the spoiler is permanently fixed in the up position.

  • Autotrend (registered bidder) 4 monthsago

    when you say a fixed rear wing, can you explain further? do you mean that the up and down function no longer works and it has therefore been position in the up only spot?

  • autosportco (seller) 4 monthsago

    Hello this is Alex at AutoSport. I would be more than willing to FaceTime this Porsche with anyone that is interested in it and send additional pictures. Please direct message me.

  • nyucfsu (registered bidder) 4 monthsago

    @autosportco to echo what @RonS12 said, it would be really helpful to see some underbody pictures

  • ronS12 (registered bidder) 4 monthsago

    Seller, please provide photos of the underbody, frunk, passenger door and rear seats. Also a startup video with accessories functioning (ie the sunroof and the spoiler raise/lower).
