83 944 Maintenance Recommendations

I have a 1983 944 that I have owned since new.  It is about to turn over 50,000 miles.  I have done the normal maintenance on my car and the timing/balance shaft belts/water pump have been replaced at 37,342 miles on September 16, 2004.  Is there any major maintenance would you suggest at this time?  It stll has the original clutch.  Would you consider the timing/balance shaft belts to still be OK?  Thanks for your help!

83 944 Repainting Porsche Hood Emblem

Repainting Porsche Hood Emblem

About 3 years ago, my ’83 944 was in a fender bender (not my fault!). The original Porsche hood emblem was mangled and was replaced with a genuine Porsche part for about $100 from the local dealer. After about 18 months, most of the paint was gone, despite protecting it with Zymol Carbon wax. I contacted the dealer and they said they couldn’t do anything, as it was beyond a year.

How should I paint/repair this?

84 944 Aftermarket Muffler Recommendation

Hi all, I love my 1984 944 but the current exhaust system sound doesn't the car justice. I'm looking for something that would provide a deep, throaty sound. I love the sound of the Borla that I put on my 1982 928 but Borla doesn't seem to make aan exhaust system for the 944.

My 944 is a 1984 base with 35k miles.

1996 993

I am getting ready to make an offer on a 1996 993 Cabrio C4.  This car has very few options but one is P03-Technic Package.  I have searched PCA as well as all the Porsche websites but nobody has a definitive answer for what is included in this option.  Can you tell me what is in this option?

seems like excessive play in the drivetrain

Model: 944, Year:85.5, Mileage:117,00, Type of use:Street use only
have a 1985.5 944 manual. when i am in traffic or riding through parkinglots and am on and off the accelerator in first or second gear there seems to be accessive play in the drivetrain. i find myself having to use the clutch to keep the ride smooth so the car doesnt jerk back and forth when i apply and let off the acellerator. ive checked the motor mounts and the transmission mounts and they seem to be fine. wondering if there is anything else i could be checking as well? thanks.
