  1. The 2 plug modules are for US spec cars and the third plug is for the retractable hitch option in Europe. Also, I did first go to Suncoast to check their prices as I heard they were the least expensive for genuine parts, and they list it for $253. But it's good to know that it can be reprogrammed.
  2. New member here who recently purchased my first Porsche, an 09 Cayenne that came without the factory hitch. I purchased a factory hitch on ebay and plan to go the OEM wiring route for sake of cleanliness of install and to get the added benefits of the factory module. I noticed that there's quite a few of them on ebay as well, but the part number is slightly different. 955-618-040-12 is the factory Porsche number but there are also another set of numbers that all start with 7L0-907-383(x). Based on ECS Tuning's website it seems that the 09 has N as the last digit, but the ones currently on
  3. I'm looking into a few cars to replace my current BMW 325iX. What are the running/maintenance costs for an 89-94 911 hardtop. Unless it's something like a full transmission rebuild all maintenance would be done by me in my garage. What's the best model to look for? What are some things that I should watch out for buying one? I'd be looking to spend somewhere between 10-12 thousand, which eliminates a lot of potential cars. Should high miles be worrying, because I know these cars are pretty tough. Any help would be greatly appreciated. :thankyou: -Tyler
