  1. Hi all I have a 2004 cayenne s which i just had my car serviced at the local porsche dealer recently, and ever since ive been noticing problem after problem occur About a week ago the airbag warning light popped up on the dash which i thought was just a corroded connection under the seat, then just yesterday i found out my horn had stopped working as well and is making a clicking noise when depressed. Then on my way home from work last night i noticed the stereo simply wouldnt turn on, which seems to have resolved its self this morning.. Could these problems be linked? Is there an easy
  2. Thats my only problem with porsche, there in car luxuries are yesteryear compared to bmw or mercedes, fair enough they focus on "performance" but it wouldnt kill them to put a decent practical head unit in there cars for once.
  3. Sounds like lack of charge in your battery, check the volt meter. I have my Cayenne in for a service today, whole list of little gremlins there replacing, including the rear badge as they recon it "corrodes" Should of got a Toureg :S
  4. From memory on the rear of the badge, there are numbers on both left and right with black dots on them, check if they match your current gold badge. From what I could make out I think its year allocation.
  5. Hehe not wrong about temporary :) From everything ive read and heard, Dubai is quite an amazing place You can pick up a Lamborghini Gallardo over there for roughly the same price a Boxster S costs here :o
  6. hahahha your right, you know I didnt even realise!
  7. Just sold my 01" Boxster S I'm moving to Dubai in a couple of months, hopefully to bigger and better things :) This part hurts :( Thank you Renntech for all your help in the past, made the sale process so much more painful as I knew so much about the car lol Anyone have any similar photos to share the pain of them selling there much loved toys? Cheers
  8. Think of it as a safety buffer when you go through speed camera's All cars are a little off showing 3 - 5km faster, its a good thing i recon.
  9. Strange my 01" S says 96 RON under the fuel cap I have never used anything less than 95 Ron mainly due to 98 not being available, worked ok i guess, didnt really notice any fuel economy or power decrease.
  10. Thx Charleston Sounds about right, I'll pull it out and have a look at it Gets annoying after a while Cheers :)
  11. Glad they sorted it out with no hassle, the porsche dealer in my town is good like that as well Ultimately your paying for that service so its to be expected :)
  12. Mine were pritty messed up to, stealer quoted me $37 - $40aud a flap :blink: So I unscrewed them, epoxied the cracks and tears, now there good as new and doing what there designed to do.
  13. Are you talking about that circular cutout? I cant see any problem placing your computer there, just keep an eye on it during summer as it gets fairly hot in there
  14. I believe im getting both the door rattle and a highly annoying squeek behind me which sounds like rubber squeeking Im about to go through and spray some silicone lube to see if i can nail it, has anyone else pin pointed the squeek in the roof? As for the door, its like a ticking noise when you hit bumps on the road, less noticable than the roof though.
  15. Check here http://www.renntech.org/forums/index.php?showtopic=13893 good for a gain in induction noise but thats about all
  16. As said above, id probably go with wiring the stock fan up to a switch so you can turn it on when you like, its a great little heater for your garage on them cold days
  17. I have an 04 Cayenne S The only minor electrical issue i have noticed is the back window popping up on random occasions, but Porsche Centre melbourne offered to remedy this and many other issues free of charge. I remember them also sending me a letter to bring it in so they could check a fault in the park brake. I havent had these issues remedied yet but havent had any problems either. Next service i'll get them to go through it.
  18. There are dozens of choices to choose from but porsche recommend tires with a N rating www.tirerack.com The tires id personally recommend are the Yokahama Advan Sports or Michelin Pilot sports, Bridgestone also make a nice tire but it comes down to personal preference and budget.
  19. Lol Tool Pants Who needs a cayenne when you have a boxster? hahaha
  20. Thats something ive never seen before ^
  21. All I can say is AWESOME! have you got any more pics? I would love to have the skill and tools to setup and mount a system like that. Like your self im a car audio fanatic, but never really thought a setup like yours was possible in our cars :) Thanks for inspiring me :)
  22. True, come to think of it, my e46 BMW came with a piece of foam wrapped around the filter Just simply ripped it off so 1. it breaths better and 2. sounds better :) Suppose theres really no point to it other than noise
  23. Read about this in the manual With PSM off it will not upshift in tiptronic mode Could possibly be you were revving to high to upshift and it stuttered.
  24. Phew luckily Yep its due for an oil change real soon, I should of done it allready but havent had the time Thx Fellas :)
