2000 986(S) Road Ready!
 
Long time lurker, first time posting here. Thought it was about time, now that my car is road ready. Today was such a perfect day on the road I just had to make a post, I think I caught the bug.

2000 986(S)
Tiptronic :/ (still great fun)
36k miles
3rd owner

What got done?

Minor/Major services...
Brake fluid flush
Spark plugs
Spark plug tubes
Multi rib belt
Ignition coil
Engine mount
Full underbody panel repair / replacement
Wheel well and mudflap assembly
Four wheel string alignment
Front and rear tire balance
PDR - 17 dents removed
New grill inserts
Windshield washer system leak repaired
New wiper blades
Re-indexed steering wheel
Full detail including 4 headlight assemblies and wheels
Other minor esthetic trim and panel repair
New plastic window(done by previous owner)

What is left?

Polish windshield: badly scratched
Transmission service: early service to extend life?
"golf balls in the trunk" sound solution (suspension?)
I'm sure there will be more to come...

Very nice and welcome :cheers: The "golf balls" sound is most likely your rear control arms. I just did mine and it makes a big difference. Pretty easy to do and it won't mess up your alignment. I used the 997 part and bought it on Amazon.
