  1. I successfully run 295/40ZR20 tires ... No fitment issues whatsoever.
  2. Having the main unit concealed is a great feature, especially if one gets interviewed often by Johnny-Law. I use an Escort 8500 in my cars and I've noticed that when the unit is installed in the Cayenne, the sensitivity drops off. In both cars, I mount the detector on the front windshield, just above the dashboard. On a side-note, I use a toll transponder for toll roads/bridge tolls. Inspecting the front windshield, I noticed that there is a factory film installed, and it has a gap (no film installed) along the rear view mirror location. If I place the transponder there, it works. The Homelink signal may be broadcasted at this location as well. Additionally, the transponder works in the Cayenne when the unit is placed (momentarily by hand) along the sun-roof glass. The point I'm trying to make is that the factory film (tint) reduces (attenuates) the signal of the radar detectors. To have the greatest radar detector range/sensitivity, it is best to have the detector's receiving unit outside of the vehicle's interior. My other car has ceramic-based film instead of metal-based film (yes, I installed film on the front windshield). I have no issues with signal attenuation with the ceramic-based film.
  3. Check the current lineup of collapsible spares that are used with the current Cayenne Turbo (957). The 955 CTTS should have the 380 mm front rotors. Ruf's big brake kit (Brembo) should be 380 mm - not 405 mm. The 957 CTT uses the monster ATE calipers and rotors. Those should be 380 mm minimum.
  4. +1 ... when I purchased my CTT, I purchased several key fob/remotes on eBay. I then got them programmed and key cut by my local Porsche dealership.
  5. For the past two weeks, I was getting the same fault (Air Suspension Faulty - Workshop). I just brought my vehicle in for a 60K mile service and thanks to you guys, I was able to tell my local Porsche dealership "NO, I'll repair it myself. I read on RennTech.org how to repair the air suspension compressor." I'm off to the VW parts department ...
  6. Well, sure Carrera is going to get more Google hits ... "Carrera" name/package was first used with/on the 356 way back when. Carrera is a sub-model name/package that has been used with many Porsche models to date. THE Carrera is of course the Carrera GT. I've noticed if you tell someone that asks you "what kind of Porsche do you drive?" and you say a Carrera, they usually assume it is the 911 model. These people typically don't know Porsche vehicles at all. Now if they follow up the question with "oh, which Carrera model?", ding, ding, ding - we have a Motor Head winner, or at least a Porschephile. From Wiki ... Carrera is a trademarked name (Spanish for "race") exclusively used by Porsche for its models to honor the company's success in the Carrera Panamericana race. The following vehicles have been called Carrera: * Porsche 356 * Porsche 904 * Porsche 911 o Porsche 911 (1963-1989) o Porsche 964 (1989-1993) o Porsche 993 (1993-1998) o Porsche 996 (1998-2004) o Porsche 997 (2004-Present) * Porsche 924 * Porsche Carrera GT
  7. Well, throwing caution to the wind, I went with slotted rooters instead of cross-drilled. I did this to reduce the risk of debris getting between the rotor and pad (as compared to cross-drilled). It is very rare to see 4-wheel / off-road vehicles with nothing but non-grooved, non-drilled rotors. I purchased all of my rotors (StopTech SportStops) and pads (Hawk HPS) from Zeckhausen Racing. Hardware was purchased from Porsche. I chose to cryo-treat the rotors and pads to extend life. I used CryoScience.com You will need to have a specialty bit to remove the rear rotors. I purchased mine from Snap On. It is a 16 mm triple-square socket driver bit (Snap On Part Number: STSM16E). Best of luck.
  8. Rick - Congrats on your new acquisition ... nice choice. I'm really surprised that your vehicle did NOT come with Park Assist. A Cayenne Turbo S typically would have this system already installed, though it is an option (I believe). I'd check with your local Porsche dealership first what would it cost to install Park Assist versus installing the Wireless Laser Pro Park system.
  9. I just ordered a set (front and rear) of Hawk HPS pads. I'm waiting for my rotors to show up, then I'll change the brakes. I'll report on the pads soon. I'm currently using OEM pads, hence, "dust generators". For what it's worth, I purchased my rotors (StopTech SportStop) and pads (Hawk HPS) from Zeckhausen Racing. When changing pads, Porsche recommends that new hardware is used: pad retaining bolt, pad sensors, and retaining clip.
  10. Andrew - PM me with your e-mail for a general instruction on how to remove and install the Bose Subwoofer in the spare tire well. There is a connector to hookup to, but unfortunately I don't have the pin-out for the connector to the PCM unit. I'm assuming you are trying to connect to the PCM. Norman
  11. Moose - I believe in RFM's posts "prohibited" means "not necessary". This may be "lost in translation", but I believe that the point/suggestion RFM is making is that if you are only changing the brake pads, don't remove the caliper from the spindle assembly. And I'm sure you know that if you are changing the rotor, then the removal of the caliper is necessary.
  12. Great ... sounds like you got a plan. Best of luck, and be easy on your knuckles!
  13. Thought of that one, but again it's 12-point and it's for a ~10mm head. the two heads on this caliper are maybe 13mm and 16mm and 10-point. No, Moose, that is a 10-point spline head socket. Give your local Snap-On rep a call. You'll be good as new I'm sure.
  14. I believe I found the socket you'll need. Snap-On P/N: #FELM10A Description: Socket, Metric, Spline, Deep, #10, 10 mm Hex Here's the link: http://buy1.snapon.com/catalog/item.asp?P6...amp;dir=catalog And here's the link to the entire spline socket collection: http://buy1.snapon.com/catalog/catalog2.as...re=snapon-store
