  1. Thanks for the link, as others have commented a great write-up. I did a search on axle stands but didn't think to try jack stands (another UK/USA difference to note). However, I don't need to get the car right off the ground I just wanted a simple safety support to use in addition to the small Porsche "wheel change" jack while I'm cleaning wheels etc. I'm now thinking about having one of my existing stands modified so that I can bolt it to the hub, do you know if anyone has tried this?
  2. My standard set of axle stands appear to be unsuitable for the 997 hub, the tapered profile the hub not sitting well in the U section of the stand. How do others support their cars while cleaning under wheel arches, calipers etc?
  3. About a year ago I copied this picture from a Rennlist forum. I've been able to obtain all of the emergency spare kit, wheel, jack etc but I can't find a part number for the expanded polystyrene packing that the wheel is shown sitting on. My OPC is unable to locate it can anyone here help?
  4. Thanks. On reflection I think that 996 Targa 60psi pressure must be for storage of a non-collapsible spare and that 36psi is probably the correct road use pressure.
  5. I don't expect there to be any difference between 996 and 997 I'm sure the emergency spare that I have is common to both. No mention of emergeny spare on the door plate just sealant, speed <80 km/hr.
  6. Thanks for the information, I couldn't locate it in my C2S manual. That's a huge difference between the Targa and C4 models - wonder why that is. Allan
  7. Anyone know what the recommended pressure is for the emergency spare and is it different for front or rear fitting?
  8. Thanks, I have two of these but have yet to order my Optimoly TA grease to apply to the bolts. Allan
  9. Chris, thanks for your response. The wheel will be off the car so it looks as though this ought to be a very simple task. It was just that I read of someone having difficulty removing the cap, even with the wheel off, that made me think this might not be so straightforward. I've only had the car a few months, it's my first Porsche, and not had any need to remove a wheel until now.

  11. Can't believe my luck I just happen to have one of those bits lying around in the garage - thanks. :thumbup:
  12. Please forgive a dumb question but I need to put my mind at ease. C2S 2007 build Carrera Sport wheels with coloured centre crest. I have a slow, front left-side, puncture which I will be getting fixed later this week. While searching on another forum for tyre depots that can be relied on not to damage rims I came across a comment that implied that removal of the wheel centre caps was the most difficult part of the task. I will most likely buy my tyre on-line, remove the wheel and cap myself and take to a local depot to have it fitted. Is there a recommended procedure for removing the wheel centre cap that will minimise the risk of damage? Thanks, Allan (Also posted in Boxster forum)

  14. You may want to check out this Car and Driver review: http://www.caranddriver.com/features/10252...-the-tread.html it provides a detailed comparison of a range of tyres. My MY07 C2S with Carerra Sports wheels came fitted with Bridgestone tyres. I have nothing to compare these with but I feel that road noise is excessive at times. When the time comes to replace these I will probably opt for Michelin (replacing as a minimum an axle set).
  15. My circa 25mpg is per imperial gallon this equates to around 21mpg per US gallon. Also I never start the car unless its for a minimum of a ten mile trip, I avoid rush hour and traffic hot spots wherever possible and I have only once used less than 99 RON fuel.
