  1. 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
  2. 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
  3. 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
  4. Hi Max, Welcome aboard. Checkout www.FVD.us when you call ask for Rhonda. They/she are doing all kinds of things with the Cayenne now. Tell her Dave sent ya!
  5. To answer question No. 1 after statement No. 2: Select Link Looks like Michael Schumacher endorses driving fast on public roads after all
  6. 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.
  7. 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.
  8. One other question, does the 2009 Turbo produce a higher horse power over the 2008? If so do you know by how much?
  9. 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
  10. 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.
  11. As much as I hate to face it, it’s almost time to buy new tires for my ’08 TT. Does anyone have an opinion what are the best tires for size 295/35 ZR-21? I’m finding out the hard way that this size does not have a lot of options in manufactures. It would be great if Vredestein Ultrac Sessanta came in 21”.

  13. Here is a link to a product I think you are looking for, The name of the company is ReconExpress ( http://www.reconexpress.com/ ) http://www.metacafe.com/watch/793138/auto_...ioning_service/ Dave
  14. The European and USA PCM NAV units are different. I found this out the hard way when I bought a NAV unit from Europe and installed it into my USA Cayenne S (Located in the US). I sent the unit to the manufacture for repair and they informed me of the difference. I was able to trade it in for a USA version and it work great.
  15. I want to change out the plenum to a new aluminum IPD plenum in my 2008 Cayenne Turbo. I have an ECU upgrade 65hp, the EVOM V-Flow and Fabspeed cat by-pass pipes. Does anyone know if the 2003 - 2007 is the same part I can use on my 2008? 955 Cayenne Turbo Intake Plenum 03-07 HP Gains: 32 Torque Gains: 25 Part# 95600
  16. Hi Rick, After reading your post I decided to research the hidden detectors, I have been using a Cobra XR9 and I thought is was the best thing since sliced bread (I live in Virginia and its not allowed here, shhh....) until I drove my '08 Cayenne Turbo to Tampa, FL. Going thru the hot radar/laser states on RT 95 I noticed several times my detector never alerted me to radar traps; thankfully I had a cargo bag on the roof limiting my speeds. The page you provided led me to studies done and found the XR9 isn’t good at off angle radar. So now I'm purchasing a unit like yours and ask the same question. "Where is the best place to install it?” I look forward to seeing what you find, I will share any information I find. FYI... my Cayenne Loved stretching her legs on the open road. I was getting 22 mpg until I filled up with cheap gas at South of the Boarder, mileage dropped to 16.8 mpg. I longed for adding Toluene to the gas again! Dave
  17. Unfortunately you will need to change the unit. When I had a 2004 Cayenne S, I installed a NAV unit purchased on eBay, it was a European unit. I couldn’t get it to work so I sent it to Becker for repair. It was then I was informed it was a European unit and will not work in the US, I ended up trading it in with them to purchase a US configured model. I would assume you are having the same problem.
  18. I have the Cobra XRS R9G and it works great and is easily concealed. Here is their statement and a link for more information: "The XRS R9G provides total protection and peace of mind with the new Super-Xtreme Range Superheterodyne™ Technology, detecting all 12 radar/laser bands with its super-fast lock-on detection circuitry. The unit provides maximum detection range and the best possible advance warning of even the fastest POP mode radar guns. It comes with a speed and red light camera GPS locator with proprietary, verified data for the entire United States and Canada. With the IntelliLink wireless connection and versatile mounting options, the driver can mount the remote anywhere inside the vehicle for discreet operation. It's simply the best detector money can buy!" http://www.cobra.com/index.cfm?fuseaction=...p;category_ID=3 Dave '08 Cayenne Turbo - Modified
  19. I’m curious if anyone sticks to the recommended oil change intervals. I am old school and I find it hard to go 12k miles for the first oil change (I actually changed it at 8k) and now I have almost 14k miles on her and the manual says the next oil change is 24k. Way back when using the standard oils I did the 2,500 miles change, then when the Synthetic oil came out I finally got comfortable changing it at 5k. Now every 12k? Enlighten me please! This is on my 2008 Cayenne Turbo.
  20. As I mentioned before the number are the "crank number's" but I'll be more than happy to post the results when available, I'm curious to know the true numbers myself. Keep in mind Porsche advertise the '08 Cayenne Turbo comes stock at 500HP. I tried to use a GTECH device prior to the modes (didn't use it properly) and got 487HP (stock) with outside temp 93 degrees and forgetting to turn-off the PCM tracking control. I doubt the tyres are an issue; I bought the car new November '07, put winter tyres on until March '08 so the tyres only have 4 to 5 months on them. Wheels & Tyres: 21 x 10J with 295/35 R 21 tyres Gross vehicle weight rating (lbs) 6,493, curb weight (lbs) 4,784 Is the 589.6hp the ACTUAL dyno number or your guess as to what the crank number would be? Or is it just the number you arrived at by adding up the advertised numbers? You do realize that if you just added up the advertised numbers then you are likely waaaaaaaay off. That's just not how it works. If it was then my Cadillac (supercharger, headers, exhaust, intake and tune) had about 700hp. Post up your dyno when you get a chance. I'm guessing you're only making around 420-440hp at the wheels (assuming about a 20% drivetrain loss). Also, if you chirped a gear in that 5800lb AWD automatic behemoth then you better look into new tires b/c that shouldn't happen at those power numbers. Anyway, congrats on the mods and enjoy your car!
  21. The pipes are from Fabspeed. Unfortunatley I didn't dyno the upgrade process, the numbers are from advertised upgrades. Very nice! who's cat bypass pipes did you use? Was the truck dyno'd after each upgrade or how do you know how much each made?
