Welcome everyone to 993 FAQs! This practical resource is by the people for the people, so please read on, we need your help! Very Happy

The aim of this sub-forum is to share any tips, advice, how to's and technical information regarding arguably the finest 911 there is, the 993 Wink

By structuring this knowledge in a FAQ like this the information should be easier to find and give you exactly the answers you're looking for. Hopefully we can build up an invaluable resource that will help everyone get the best out of owning this great car.

So over to you guys - we need your help please!

*We need suggestions of subjects to have as 993 FAQs - please reply to this thread with any ideas you have.

*The aim is to eventually migrate relevant threads across to FAQs as appropriate. If you find a thread that should be a FAQ please let me know by sending me a PM and I'll move it across.

*If you're about to do a modification, maybe do a small write up (maybe with pictures) and share what benefit you found as a result.

*Reply to FAQs with any additional info you may have so we can build on the info we have.

That's it for now. Please note that you cannot start a new thread in FAQs, so please start one in the 993 forum and PM me and I'll move it across.

Look forward to hearing your suggestions!
