  1. Sportec just confirmed that part will solve my issue. Before ordering and moving the money, does anyone have any experience with California Motorsports Inc ? Can I trust them they will ship me a brand new item as advertised?
  2. Thanks for the confirmation about the tranny replacement (NB: I fully trust Sportec if they say so) and for the hint, Silver_TT. The Sportec dudes should now be back from Easter-lalaland, so we'll see how we proceed... Will keep this thread updated for the future generations.
  3. Thanks! Yes, the shop is more than qualified. Will come back here with their opinion...
  4. Hi all, Been quite silent in the last few... years(?). My Turbo has now over 540'000 km (335'000 mi). Got a new suspension last year (Bilstein B16 PSS10), and a lot of plastic parts have been replaced (front underbody, wheel wells, etc. With the Sportec Stage 3+ (593hp, 820Nm/600lbft), the baby is still pushing strong. Yeah, only pushing and not pulling: we've also removed the front shaft. Recently, the tranny decided it had enough: the bell housing had a failure. 🤯 Sportec says that Porsche only replaces complete trannies, not only the bell housing. I can (
  5. I doubt it would make a significant difference on open roads. For track use, yes. Otherwise I don't see the necessity of an upgrade. Just my 2 cents. Open to different opinions.
  6. What about trying the good old reset first? Open the window completely, then close it but stay on the button for something like 30 sec when it's all up. 30 sec might be too long, but I don't remember the exact duration. [emoji6]
  7. That's probably the beginning of the end. [emoji21] I went for the Rennkit solution and wouldn't go back: http://rennkit.com Sent from my HTC 10 using Tapatalk
  8. Yeah, accumulator and slave had been replaced on my car too.
  9. Got my baby back. Instead of the announced CHF 1k, they wanted to charge me CHF 1.8k (USD 2k). I told the guys it's quite a stretch from 1k, and they went down to CHF 1.4k (USD 1.55k), which is ok. Besides that, the whole 'experience' was excellent: friendly people all the way, the car was delivered in top condition, etc. Kudos to www.porsche-lausanne.ch. I will post pics of the faulty parts soon.
  10. WOW! Impressive. Mine would need some similar treatments as well... Here's a demo video:
  11. Nice review!Funny, I have the very same issues with the oil pressure sensor and the rear wing... I won't do much for the first one, and not sure yet about the wing.All the best for 2013 to everybody!
  12. Yes, I will ask for the details when I'll pick up my baby. And I've also asked the shop to keep the broken parts so that I understand the issue. Mileage? Just passed 416'000 km (258'500 miles). Not bad, but still much less than T2 and his 350'000+ miles!
  13. Some news already: it's just a hose and the tank, so no big deal. Still about CHF 1k (USD 1100) including labor.
  14. Good old TT just suffered a complete (and sudden) loss of power steering fluid. It happened at the very end of a 200km trip (mostly highway). Driving out of the highway, I noticed a noise coming from the front when steering. Luckily, I reached destination quickly. A look at the fluid level made it clear: the stick was dry. The fluid had just finished to leak and the last drops were falling to the ground under the engine. The car is now at a local Porsche dealer. I wonder whether it's just a hose, the pump, or... ?
