I wonder what happened to it (how it got such a damage). It lost air pretty quickly and it was no longer drivable. The kicker was Porsche Roadside Assistance, they said the tow service will be there in 90 mins (this was after 1am) and it'll tow the car to the closest dealership and lock it. Even though all I needed was to put the spare on and get home. They said due to reliablity issues (putting the tire on the seat) they have to do that and have me stranded and find my way home (talk about convenience). Fortunately, the tow truck guy was logical and agreed to my request and I got home with my own car! I was able to fit that 285mm wide tire in the front and slowly close the lid. Now time to use my roadside hazard coverage but get 2 new rears, since these have 9-10k miles on them...
Yes, under the Certified Pre-owned warranty. I'm guessing it'll cost around 20K, that would've been bad w/o warranty. Definitely buying additional warranty once this one expires next year...
I left my car at the dealership last Thursday and they couldn't figure it out with the ticking / oil burn / fuel. After contacting the Porsche, they got directions on taking the engine out and starting probing it. The Service manager told me that they say a scoring in the enginer block, based on Porsche's decision, they'll either get a rebuilt or new engine in there... He said it could be from a pison holding pin. I wonder if I should get set of headers and mufflers while it's out or wait till everything gets fixed first. Now my engine is sitting with trash bags taped all over it.. :( He're the car.. it looks so empty...
I had a similar situation as nylewis that started couple of weeks ago at the cold and coming from the passenger side as well! Replaced the oil today and used the MOTUL engine cleaner before draining the old oil, but the noise is still there. Also added SeaFoam product to see if it'll help with the lifter noise, it didn't help. Been running 0W40 here in MA and replaced with the same grade Mobil1. :( nylewis let us know what you found out to be your fix? Thanks...
I did a search and saw other folks mentioning that their speedo shows roughly 10% more than actual. Mine is approx. 4mph higher at a wide range of speed compared to the GPS. Do you know how can it get corrected / calibrated? Is there an OBD type tool at dealers to go in and change a variable / modify a correction factor to fix it? TIA
gkrikori posted a topic in 996 Series (Carrera, Carrera 4, Carrera 4S, Targa)I wonder what happened! All of a sudden, around 2 in the afternoon today, I sat in the car, started it and I've got an Airbag error and a light on the dash. Now it's been doing that since, everytime I start the car. :angry: It's a 2002 C2 Coupe.
