    @Bsharo I don’t know exactly because it happened before my friend bought it. I metered the whole car and it’s all in the 3-4.5 range but the hood meters at a consistent 12. Hope that helps

  • Bsharo (registered bidder) 4 weeks, 1 dayago

    What was accident in 2017?

  • Midwestern11 (seller) 1 monthago

    @cicciopasticcio I know. Just got back in town a couple hours ago. I’ll do a cold start in the morning.

    @steveb109 YES. I have bought hundreds of cars out of Ontario and all over Canada

  • steveb109 1 monthago

    Hi - great looking 996 - are you able to assist in shipping to Ontario Canada? Thanks .

  • Midwestern11 (seller) 1 monthago

    @cicciopasticcio no dealer fees on the sale. Ohio is a reciprocating tax state with 6 states. Other than those states, we don’t collect sales tax

  • cicciopasticcio (registered bidder) 1 monthago

    @Midwestern11 Can you confirm there is not dealer fee associated with this car? Is there any sales tax on the sale price? If yes, what is the sale tax %?

    @Poromeo I added those pics to the Pcar uploader on Tuesday but you’re right, they aren’t in the listing. I emailed my rep to see what is going on. My driving video isn’t even on here either I just noticed.

  • Poromeo (registered bidder) 1 monthago

    For some reason the hardtop pictures have not been added. Can you confirm that the hardtop is included with the sale of the car along with the carrying case and windscreen? Thanks...

  • Midwestern11 (seller) 1 monthago

    @Poromeo yes I took some fresh pics today of the hardtop. I will add them right now.

  • Poromeo (registered bidder) 1 monthago

    My mistake on the steering wheel. Sorry . It looks like they built them both ways in 2001. Also your picture shows the bearing sticker as RND engines Roller bearing. Thanks... Nice car. Any chance of adding the hardtop pictures?

  • Midwestern11 (seller) 1 monthago

    @Poromeo thank you for reaching out. Please read the build list in the description regarding the steering wheel. This one has the 4-point wheel. I will check the receipt to see which brand of IMS bearing they used. I know the company really well that did the work too

  • Poromeo (registered bidder) 1 monthago

    The Carfax says that the airbags did not deploy however I believe this car has the wrong steering wheel on it. I believe it was built with the triangular air bag wheel in 2001. Are you aware if it was changed?
    Also - can you let me know which brand of IMS bearing was used in the replacement? Thanks...

  • Txporsche 1 monthago

    @Midwestern11 Thanks for the prompt reply. Good to hear that both of those valuable options are with the car.

  • Midwestern11 (seller) 1 monthago

    @Txporsche I am not sure why PCar decided to omit my pics of the hard top (on and off the car), but yes I have the hard top and it's wrapped and inside the Porsche hard top carrying case. The windscreen is in pics 80, 82, and 83. It's also inside the original Porsche windscreen carrying case.

    Very nice 996. It appears to have been well maintained and well cared for. The window sticker shows the hardtop which came standard on the Cab. during those 996 years but is absent from the photos. Is it still with the car? The same applies to the folding windscreen behind the front seats.
