  1. I cannot locate any information that shows someone installing these side rock rails from suncoast on the 958. I would be curious how they look up close, the picture on the website is not very good.
  2. Never mind, just decided to return it and get a replacement unit. Feel free to delete this if possible.
  3. Just to be sure, here is a picture of the one I am using. There is an older version that did not have that full functionality. I wonder if you need to select by can bus type rather than model type. Maybe some years were different. Could also be a faulty ecu but not likely if you do not have an error. As far as durametric I had nothing but problems in that it would not reset anything. That is what led me to icarsoft eventually. If the problem is isolated to the 955 it make take several people questioning so I would encourage TT955MTL to contact support with the same concerns.
  4. Yes, no problem with both service reminders and the oil reset, I actually just did my second oil reset yesterday and it worked perfect, took all of 30 seconds maybe.
  5. My fear is I will hook them up and my computer not recognize them or give me a code because they came out of a European Cayenne. Maybe it does not matter but I thought someone might.
  6. I am looking at buying a set of the black bi-xenon PDLS lights for my 2012 Cayenne S. I already have bi-xenon PDLS so this is purely a cosmetic change for me. I found a set at a store in Germany, they are the non turbo version I want (without those 4 leds) and they list part numbers 95863128301 & 95863128201. Those appear to be European Porsche part numbers when I do a search, but some stores in America seem to sell them too yet others do not have them listed. My question is will these work on my USA Cayenne S? Thanks.
  7. Never mind, found this in the manual...."Do not warm up the engine when stationary. Drive off immediately. Avoid high revolutions and full throttle"
  8. Hello, just curious if anyone has had success or problems installing a remote start setup like the Viper system? In the back of my mind I recall reading someone having problems but I see several installs on YouTube (which does not speak to any issues of course). I would like to have one installed but not if there are known electrical gremlins when doing it. I have a 2012 Cayenne S. Thanks
  9. I have another post that goes into a little detail but in summary not matter which service reminder I tried to reset the durametric would show that it was reset but never was. This was the case with oil and both service reminders. I am not sure what the problem was but I have no problem using the iCarsoft which makes me very happy. I doubt it was my module or I would expect trouble from iCarsoft too but it worked first time in all resets. It might be differences in DMEs as mentioned and maybe durametric had not updated yet. If durametric works for someone then it is a great tool, this is just another option that happened to be the only option for me.
  10. On a side note I have not noticed it again so maybe it was an isolated incident. Good thing because the dealer never did return my message.
  11. Now the pictures are showing, here is one more of the soft case.
  12. The pictures are not showing at least on my end so I will try again. Also notice the nice case, connection cable to update and an adapter to if needed.
  13. I tried to respond to another member that was asking about the icarsoft but it would not allow me to respond, so I will outline my experience here. After many weeks of frustration with the durametric and paying shipping for their faulty product I returned it. Now several months later I figured why not try this icarsoft, the newest version that claims it resets oils reminders and service reminders too, both which I was never able to get the durametric to do even after multiple updates (this is mainly why I bought it). Low and behold I hooked it up today after getting it in the mail and it reset them perfectly first try. It also has a diagnostic mode unique to Porsche in addition to standard OBD II and it ran a Porsche unique DTC scan of all the different systems, my Cayenne responded accordingly on the dash each time the system was being tested (such as parking brake and many others) and I never got an error trying to connect. Quite honestly this is what I expected from durametric all along and it never delivered which did not give me hope for similar systems. I think the older version of the icarsoft did not do the oil and service reset which is why I previously did not give it a second look, but it does now. Here is a picture of the newer, larger unit. Oh yeah, and the user interface is nice, you do not need a computer to make it work and it seems it can be used on as many makes and models that you want (no limit like durametric). This was not meant to bash durametric as I know many use and love it, but for those that have issue with it like me, or want in my opinion what is an easier to use cheaper alternative then give it a try. You can see from my earlier posts I have no ties to this brand and was truly just trying to find something that worked after multiple fails. I bought from Amazon only because I had a gift card that covered most of the cost, but they seem to be a little cheaper on eBay, about $176.
  14. Looks like it is letting me post a response here now which it did not at first, I already put my thoughts and review on this in a separate thread and to avoid duplication will refer you to it. In summary though I had a durametric but after several attempts by their support to get it to reset my oil and service reminder I sent it back for a return as they were out of ideas. I then bought the i960 once they updated it to reset service lights and it works perfect. Others have success with durametric as you can see in threads, and it might serve you well, but for me it is the i960 which resets and scans for codes etc.
  15. I will also snap a shot of the rear mat, I recommend these without a doubt.
  16. The TRW ceramic pads are great, by far they seem to be cleaner and still nice and quiet.
  17. I am more confused than ever, as much as I do not want to remove the wheels and brakes again to retighten I certainly will if I should. Maybe I should leave them alone. I agree that most places do not torque and hammer things tight with an air impact, but I torque everything so it is probably going to bug me until I do.
  18. I am looking at the seal where the front plastic and back plastic are joined and the seal looks good and there are no cracks. Also there is no collection of water at all so it is strange. The condensation was there as you see and now it is gone, but I presume will return. It showed up after washing my car by hand with a garden hose, so not even an automatic high pressure car wash.
  19. I bought a new set of black (GTS style) led tail lights for my 2012 Cayenne S in October. After washing my car today I noticed the slight condensation in the inside section upper right corner. It disappeared after 20 minutes or so. Normally I would say it is a bulb housing gasket as they stay compressed and do not always seal when installing on new lights, but these just have a wire connection as they are led. I guess there might be a break in the seal on the top of the housing. I contacted the dealer about it being something covered by warranty, but curious if anyone else had this problem and if they had to fix it themselves?
  20. M14 front and M12 rear are what is on my 2012 958S. If that is the case then sounds like I torqued them way more than needed? I presume I need to replace the bolts again? It says to replace them after removing, which I just did, but is there something about the way they seat that requires replacement if I back them off and re-torque?
