  1. Hi all, New here again after an extended Pork break, but have been a lurker for a while. Wonderful place, and I now call upon your help! My 2002 996T (Tiptronic) went in for a discnnected boost pipe (all fixed easily) but they noticed movement in the rtight hand side (as you look from the rear) driveshaft, at the output flange. Rather than risk driving it and a gearbox explosion, I have left it with them. Not really floppy, just a small movement. However, I am an impatient type! They think its the bearing just inside the flange and are taking it apart with that repair in mind. I just wondered if anyone has heard of this before-I have searched but cant easily find anything. All help appreciated. Phil
  2. I just had a full glass out respray. Cost was £5000. it looks great now!
  3. Unless you are lucky like me-I found mine written in biro on the top of the unit after removal-you will have to take it to Porsche so they can get the serial number and send of for the code. Wave goodbye to £40.
  4. It is a common issue. Sometimes, if its run very low, you have to put a certain amount in before it will register on the gague. If I run mine till the light comes on I have to put more than £25 in before it registers. I have no idea why?
  5. Mine has never had an RMS and uses NO oil over the 12k intervals between servicing. People tell me that these cars like to be driven and I can see now its true.
  6. Yes of couse they can-its what they are built for. Mine now has 72k miles and lots (most) of those miles are at high revs/hard driving. As long as its serviced and you MUST wait for it to warm up then of course you can thrash them every day. The red line is there so that the engine cant be damaged. They set it at a safe level.
  7. Mine was the same for months-it was the battery and now everything is great.
  8. Loren thank you. I pulled another plastic cover down and there was another relay-the one that I needed! All done now and very happy!! Thanks again. Phil
  9. There are 2 of the larger relays with the following part numbers. The first one is the one highest up on the board 996 615 117 00 996 615 103 00
  10. Hi all. I just had the PSE fitted and want to do this mod BUT..there is no relay with that part number or words on in my car. It a 1999 C2. Any ideas? Thanks for any help Phil
  11. If its any use here in the UK I paid £550 for the same job....makes yours seem OK.
  12. You wouldnt catch me putting used tyres on. They could have been down pot holes, over kerbs etc and who is to know if the sidewall is weakened? The only time tou may find out is a high speed blow out that could be the the end of your life... Driving a Porsche and trying to save a few £s on tyres??? Dont do it. Its just not worth it. They are the only thing that keeps you on the road.
