  1. In my experience...You need to turn your key all the way to the left to get the secondary battery into the picture after the main one is dead. This has always allowed me to start the vehicle.
  2. I wouldn't drill rotors that didn't come that way from the manufacturer. At the most I'd dimple or slot the _fronts_ only if you're looking for a bit of an 'edge'. You might want to look at this site http://www.frozenrotors.com and give them a call. I got a set of rear rotors from them for my ML55 a month or so back. It's too early to tell if the cryo treatment is buying me anything but they have a heck of a lot of field reports indicating that it helps. They (the Frozen Rotors folks) are also straight up on drilling, dimpling and slotting. Any of these 'enhancements' is going to increase pad consumption. I don't know what your experience is but my MLs have needed pads frequently enough without any 'help'. I would go so far as to say that MLs flat out eat rear brake pads. This is related to traction control and I think the fact that they put really puny (solid E-class if I remember right) rotor and calipers on the rear of even the ML55. Rear pad 'eating' seems to be pretty common with traction controlled vehicles operating in snow/icy climates so it will interesting to see how the Cayenne does with its internally vented rear rotors does.
  3. I've seen some docs that say the remote control is "only Row". Let me know if you find out differently. I'd love to be able to turn mine on remotely. As a side note...I was looking at the '05 order guide and notice that 7VE Pre Heater w/ Timer isn't listed. Love to know what's up with that.
  4. Thankfully, you only get a warning when you start the vehicle. I've been running mine disabled since the system got messed up during a tire swap. The TPMS screen just shows no values for the tires. I read somewhere that you can also get these from Tire Rack for $80ish dollars a piece. Still kind of a rip give that you can get the whole SmarTire system from them for under $300.
  5. Thank you Loren! We've tried three dealers about this and they haven't been able to find a number.
  6. Thanks Loren, I know it's not the olive grain. I'm thinking that it must be the rootwood. For what it's worth the listing in a Tequipment catalog for the whole package is: Dark walnut wood interior package 955 044 800 18 Hope the above helps.
  7. Do you have the part number for the center console trim pieces in dark walnut? I think this looks like it's number 8 in the diagram above. The aluminum trim ring has a dent it so that's all I really need but it looks like it's 'plastic welded' from the bottom. To date, my dealer has only been able to come with a part number for the whole (center console, doors dash, etc.) dark walnut kit trim. Many thanks.
  8. Any time. Glad the move worked out. Now if I can only get mine back to a functioning state. Thanks for the constructive "As a matter of fact, yes..." comments over on Roadfly.
  9. Since you already have the wheels you could move or add TPMS sensors. Since you want to use both sets, I'd add them. I sure wouldn't want to get in the middle of moving them between two sets of wheels every season. My dealer moved TPMS sensors from a set of 19s to 18s when I got my Cayenne. Other folks have had them added: http://www.leonoff.net/pages/cayenne/tpms/tpms.html to even third party wheels. Your dealer should be able to do this without too much trouble and take care of any issues. Realize that it is going to take breaking down the wheels to add the sensor, rebalance and time to get the system to recognize the sensors.
