colinmartin The sunroof drain is located on the passenger side front under the carpet. Every so often it needs to be cleaned and sometimes may have been pulled out of the firewall and you will experience a "flood". It's easy to get to, just pull the carpet back from the firewall and you will see a black hose fitted to the wall. Dave
The drain is located under the dash on the passenger's side near the top edge of the carpet. You need to pull the carpet down to access it, it is a rubber plug with a hose and feeds through the firewall at the location. Dave
Sport mode will not put you into first gear, you need to either shift manually or use the paddles to down shift to first to launch. Test drive one again using first gear, you will feel better about owning one. After owning one for a while and you get use to the power, there are a lot of things you can do to them to make even more power. I went a little over board with my 2008 Cayenne Turbo S but I love it and drive it every day! Dave

To answer question No. 1 after statement No. 2: Select Link Looks like Michael Schumacher endorses driving fast on public roads after all
:rolleyes: What can I say... she's fast
2008 Cayenne Turbo 178 MPH
I have a 2008 Cayenne Turbo and I purchased a set of MICHELIN Latitude Alpin's, If you are lucky enough to find the MICHELIN Latitude Alpin HP grab them fast, they are hard to find... Granted I needed them for 20". TireRack has them at a good price, but you need to look them up by tire size. The Latitude Alpin is Michelin's Light Truck/SUV Performance Winter tire developed for the drivers of all-wheel drive crossover and sport utility vehicles. The Latitude Alpin is designed to combine a smooth, quiet ride and long wear with traction on cold, wet, snow-covered and icy roads. The Latitude Alpin features a Helio Compound (sunflower oil-enriched compound) molded into a directional tread design combining a continuous center rib with independent intermediate and shoulder blocks to blend stability on dry roads with hydroplaning resistance on wet roads and traction in slush, snow and on ice. Bi-directional self-locking sipes allow greater sipe density that bites into snow and ice for sure-footed braking and traction in cold weather conditions. Michelin Stabiligrip technology featuring variable geometry sipes (wavy at the tire's surface and straight at their base) enhances handling at higher speeds. Michelin Comfort Control Technology combines computer-optimized design and precision manufacturing methods to reduce vibration and road noise. The tire's internal structure includes twin steel belts reinforced with spirally wound polyamide cord to support the tread, while a polyester cord carcass enhances ride comfort. Latitude Alpin winter tires meet the industry's severe snow service requirements and are branded with the mountain/snowflake symbol. MICHELIN Latitude Alpin HP The Latitude Alpin HP is Michelin's Performance Winter tire developed for the drivers of high performance pickups and luxury sport utility vehicles who want to enhance their winter driving experience. Latitude Alpin HP tires were designed to combine responsive handling on dry, wet and slippery winter roads. The Latitude Alpin HP features a tread rubber compound that remains flexible at lower temperatures for greater grip and better handling in cold temperatures, as well as in snow and on ice. This compound is molded into a subtle, directional tread design that features rounded shoulders to provide predictable handling while maintaining good traction on dry, wet and slush-covered roads. Circumferential bridges between the independent tread blocks further enhance dry road handling while lateral grooves and high density sipes increase braking and control on slippery roads. The tire's structure includes twin steel belts reinforced by Michelin's spirally wrapped nylon Banded At Zero (BAZ) to optimize high-speed handling and durability. Latitude Alpin HP winter tires meet the industry’s severe snow service requirements and are branded with the snowflake-on-the-mountain symbol.
Porsche cars/SUV's like to be driven, if the car had been sitting for a while or "driven on weekends and to the grocery store once a week" more than likely all you need to do is go out on your own and open'er up for a good stretch... Safely of course. More than likely that's all the dealership is going to do, especially if you are not getting any codes or faults.
Does anyone know the part number for the Turbo fitting a 2008 Cayenne Turbo, and the part number for the Turbo fitting a 2009 Cayenne Turbo S? or know where I can research this information online? Thanks in advance, Dave
Hudnu46 replied to AVIA8R's topic in 9PA, 9PA1 (Cayenne, Cayenne S, Cayenne Turbo, Cayenne Turbo S)I ran my 2008 TT and the best time I got out of it was 1/4 mile - 12.19 sec @ 116 MPH. I tried several things like you and found that staging at around 2500 RPMs did the trick. I left the car in drive but used the steering wheel controls to drop it into 1st gear. I did a few mods and also ran the ole race fuel trick shown in my blog.
