I'm new to this forum as this is my first venture in to the Porsche world B) Greetings all!
Now to my question:
I've just bought a Boxster S -00 and had a pre purchase inspection done prior to the deal.
The mechanic commented on a noise coming from the front end that he attributed to the fact that the front tires were misaligned and torn on the inside. Other than that the car passed the inspection so I went ahead and bought the car.
The car is due for a tire replacement, wheel alignment and balancing later this week.
After having put 500 miles on the car the noise is more noticeable and I am no longer sure it has anything to do with tires or alignment :huh:
It is a grinding noise that is noticeable from about 20 mph - shu, shu, shu - and it increases in frequency with speed without correlation to gear or rpm. I have no noticeable vibrations in the car or steering wheel and the car drives well. The sound is more noticeable while braking. :angry:
Any thoughts are welcome! :)
