  1. I would recommend Venture film. Venture was bought out by 3M a while ago. After doing some research, I had Venture film applied to 66% of my 2008 C2S. It is barely noticeable. As for discoloration and cracking over time, it's too early to tell on my car. But it's probably the best thing I can do for the car. I drive 45 miles everyday on some bad highways and I can already see benefits.
  2. All, after much anxiety about this issue, I have collected all the facts from my local Porsche dealer. Here are the facts. Bulletin Notice Number W733 issued on May 25, 2007 "This is to inform you of a voluntary Workshop Campaign on certain 2007 model year BoxsterS/Cayman S, 911 Carrera/S and 911 Carrera 4/4S vehicles. There is the possibility that some engines were manufactured which may lack an oil supply bore for the chain tensioner on the cylinder head of cylinder bank 1-3 due to a production flaw. As a result, the chain can jump out of place in certain operating states and can cause engine damage. To remedy the situation: 1) Check matching number on cylinder head of cylinder bank 1-3. 2) Check that the cylinder head of cylinder bank 1-3 has the required oil supply bore for the chain tensioner. 3) Replace cylinder head of cylinder bank 1-3. A total of 112 US, Puerto Rican and Canadian vehicles fall within the scope of this Workshop Campaign. Very Important! Use the VIN range below as a general guideline. The VIN can be checked in the WWS for confirmation of an open workshop campaign (Also see PIWIS VIN information). Refer to Attachment A to determine if a particular vehicle is eligible for this workshop campaign. Also, the VIN can be checked via the VRU (Voice Response System) for any open listing." THIS ONLY IMPACTS 2007 YEAR VEHICLES.
  3. I'm new to this site. I just bought a 2008 Carrera 2S. I was wondering if anyone knew of the major differences between the 2007 and 2008 model. I know that the Extended Navigation system is the only nav system offered now. I also heard that the spring coils in the 2008 version are made of aluminum (as opposed to steel in 2007 models). Does anyone know if this is true?
