That is pretty much what I do.

Going in is right leg in, left hand on the door sill and lower yourself in roughly at the same time. Grab hold of steering wheel with your free hand as support if necessary.

Getting out is left hand on the door sill, push with your right leg and carefully put your left leg out (roughly at the same time) until you can stand, then pull your right leg carefully out while propping yourself with left hand.

After getting a hang of it, it is no different than getting into a 14/18 way seat really. At least for me anyway. I learned how to get out first, then figured out how to get in properly.

You know you're not in, "the general public," when you spend your time discussing how to get in and out of your car seat.

What can you code for the 4RS anyway? I never bothered to ask. I personally want to see the SRS in person. SRS is probably the only car that I see is okay with 2 or 18 way.

Oh yeah its definitely a conversation lol. After getting used to it I haven't had any sort of trouble. These seats though are definitely not fit for bigger people.

You can code pretty much everything that can be coded in Boxter or Cayman GTS or GT4. For example windows roll up/down with keyfob, instrument cluster light ON etc. Interestingly, the SRS did not have the Auto Start Stop button. I remember seeing that button in some SRS release pictures. I drove it and found the ride very compliant. I really like the seats and the intake noise. Blip is instantaneous. Shorter gearing compared to GT3 and GT4.

Have you coded the LWBs before? It requires the seat occupancy module to be coded and heated seats to be coded out.

I did this on my 996. I can code this for you. You have to add LWBS to your vehicle and Auto Code. Calibrate seat sensor. I work with rnlstlog so he will be assisting us if needed. I believe he helped f4bones with all his coding.

The ASS has to do with the engine I think because the 4RS doesn't have the button for it either so I am not surprised that the SRS doesn't have it. Though I think the 992 GT3 has it but the GT3RS doesn't so maybe it is a RS thing.

I'm curious if the SRS suspension feel is similar to the GT4 and Spyder suspension because it is supposed to be softer for road driving. 4RS driving through DTLA road is not too comfortable some times.

It could be. I did not know about the Porsche hood emblem sticker. That's a RS thing to save weight

Would be cooler if it were a scratch n' sniff. Different smell per quadrant...brakes, clutch, tires, running rich exhaust!

Man-cave is almost in full effect..


.and Sabine has her own section of the 3-car tandem. I had the floors epoxied last Monday/Tuesday, the racks put in Thursday and the custom cabinets installed Friday.

Im trying to get my peg-board dialed in with the stuff I wanted to hang.
