  1. I recently 'upgraded' from my '01 996 Cabrio to an '06 Carrera S (woo hoo!). I had noticed right after I took it that when it started, it cranked slowly - at times seeming like it may not start...very similar, if not the same, as when you have a battery that's about to die, or a starter about to go. For the first few days I put my battery on a tender to see if it made a difference...it did not. I took the car to Dutch Treat, a great local independent shop who's been taking care of my 996 for the past 3 years. He tested the battery, which tested just fine, and said it was the starter. As the car is still under warranty, I took it to Porsche. Long story short - they said that the car tested within spec and, while they admitted it cranked slow and unusual, I was told that, basically, the warranty issue is a pass/fail issue and since it passed, they would not do anything. So, I have no choice but to keep driving it, waiting for the day (that I believe will come) where it doesn't turn over. I was wondering if anyone else has this problem and what, if anything, was done? Thanks!
  2. I just traded my '01 Cab for an '06 S Cab...very nice! It is pretty loaded (leather, Nav, Bose, sports seats, sport/chrono, etc.), but I am considering either completely changing out the head unit (for something like a Pioneer Avic Z2 which would have everything I want, including Bluetooth, ipod, etc) or just adding ipod and bluetooth to the existing unit. Any suggestions on gear, where to do (or can I do it myself?)? Much appreciated! David
