  1. Good info in this link to Rennlist: https://rennlist.com/forums/996-turbo-forum/873354-passengers-window-has-lost-it-s-mind.html Loren, please delete if we are not allowed to post links like this. Sorry if I'm in error.
  2. Do you have Sport Exhaust? Could just be overruns. Could also be diverter valves letting out boost. If you truly want it perfect, go to your dealership.
  3. This is an especially poor tire combinaton. Compounded by the fact that it's a 4S. Good luck. You'd be better served with 4 Pilot Super Sports or 4 Pilot 4S (thier newest tire offering). I'm currently running a new set of the MPSS on my 991 C2S PowerKit Cab. The good news is that your Cups will wear out very soon!:)
  4. I suggest you do another oil change in 1,000 miles, and send a sample off to Blackstone Labs for a baseline UOA. Then, rinse & repeat every 5,000 miles. Yearly at a minimum. Order your free sample kits today.
  5. Sounds like a prior owner bypassed the clutch microswitch.
  6. Unfortunately, 1 quart per 1,000 miles is very much within Porsche's spec. Some Porsches consume oil. Some don't. I've owned 3 (987S, 993 Turbo, 991 C2S) and non have consumed oil between oil changes (5,000 miles).
  7. Maybe your dealership will do it for you during an oil change, without charging you extra. Worth a shot. Unless you do your owner oil changes, too.
  8. Better (lower) wear metals. Alum, Iron, and Copper. Better high shear, high temp, stability. Oil stays in grade longer, over the drain interval. Better zinc levels. Better phosphorus levels. DT40 is a good product, slightly better than Mobil 0W40. My experience is that Mobil 5W50 is slightly better again than DT40, with the added advantage of; being A40 approved, has far less cross polination issues, and much easier to purchase (Napa Auto Parts).
  9. If you want the full effect of the Driven 5W40, you need to do a flush (200-400 miles) with BR30 first. The Driven oil products fight many other oil companie's additive packages. The Driven products are not Porsche A40 approved (there are over 200 oils on the list), if that matters to you. If you elect not to do the flush, you will not see the true benefit of the Driven 5W40 for about 3 oil change cycles (due to the cross pollination). This could easily be 2-3 years for most owners. This flush process come directly from the oil's developers (L. Speed and J. Raby). If it were my Birthday-Boxster (BIG congrats, BTW), I'd use Mobil 5W50, and call it a day. My Mobil 5W50 UOA's (Blackstone Used Oil Analysis) have always exceeded the Driven in my 987S and 991S.
  10. Re-confirm you are properly attaching the positive and negative terminals. What do you mean by "engine cover grills"? How old is battery? Is the vent tube properly connected? What is the battery's fluid level in each cell? If the battery is failing, and you "recharged" it, it only made it worse. Worse thing for a battery it to be fully discharged, and then recharged.
  11. I had great tire performance on my 2014 991S with PZeros. I now have the MPSS. I expect them to be just as good, if not better. On the PZeros, you only have the rim protector on the front 245/35/20.....not the rear. Witht the MPSS, you will have it on both, so that's about the only sidewall difference. They sit very well on my Sport Techno wheels. Make sure you order your tires ASAP. Many places run out of the popular 295/30/20 and 305/30/20 rear tires. You can easily upsize to the 305....FYI. You should also look into the new Michelin PS4S tire coming out now.
  12. Here is a little trick to try. Use the Dr. Color Chip website to find the code. https://www.drcolorchip.com/
  13. Exactly. You have over 8 quarts of oil and over 6 gallons of coolant.
  14. You could always go more avian.
