  1. My 05 v6 has had a small idle issue for probably that last few years. When I start it first thing in the morning it idles fine for about the first 5 seconds. Then it starts to have an unsteady idle. Once I drive it's fine. It's fine if I stop at lights and it's normally fine if I've driven it for a while even if I run in somewhere for an hour and restart it. It seems to only do it first thing in the morning when it's cold. I haven't had any codes over the period of time that it has been this way. During that time period I have had new updated coils and plugs installed as part of routine preven
  2. Agreed on number 2. Being Normal 1. May be a cardan shaft going bad. Mine hummed when I got over 40mph. Just a guess but let's see what others say
  3. Has anyone used or heard about the bosch quiet cast pads? They offer a figment for cayennes.
  4. Car has a 6 month old battery but if it sits in the garage its volt reading will drop from 12.3 ++ after driving to 11.99 or lower after sitting for 3-4 days. I think it has a slow drain somewhere but not sure where. Durametric only shows that i need a new sensor for my auto lights on/off which I do. When i have my lights set to auto in the day they are on which they shouldn't be. No big deal to me as I just leave them in off position and don't use the auto function. Any ideas on what the drain could be or how to trouble shoot it? No problems starting the car but just don't like knowing I ha
  5. after searching on this site and another i think that it may be the front differential. I'm going to take it to my local indy shop on monday or tuesday. Car is fine for the first 15-20 mins and then the noise comes and goes. starts when you get around 30mph and stops when you slow down to around 15mph. I'm hoping it will just be a belt or something. My second hope is that changing the differential fluid may help. I'm just not ready to drop $2500-4000 on replacing the differential. I've read where some people have made it 20,000 + miles after the sound started before changing it although I
  6. tire pressur is fine. after searching and reading many posts, I'm hoping its not the front differential starting to go bad. I have 53,000 miles on car. Should I possibly change the differential fluid? Oil is only about 4,000 miles old and checks out ok. What other fluids should I check? hoping it is just a belt or new fluid and not something major.
  7. Car is a 2005 V6 Cayenne w/ just over 50,000 miles. The other day after about 15 minutes of driving I could hear a noise coming from the front end. I turned radio down to hear it better and it was a whistling noise. It went away after a minute and didn't hear it again that day. Yesterday when driving I heard it again and thought maybe I had something in my front wheel or tire but then it went away again and didn't hear it for the rest of the day. Today I was driving around local neighborhoods and I heard it while driving and it would start and stop every 30 seconds to a minute at low speed
  8. Kohan 22in wheels. No idea of the weight but I love them. I think they go perfectly w/ the car. Not too much!
  9. I replaced mine w/ ATE slotted rotors and oem pads. Love them so far!
  10. So I have a 2005 w/ 49700 miles and I believe I am having some coil issues. Car idles weird on first cold start of the day for about 20 seconds. If it is the coils would I still fall under this new warranty since I'm out of original warranty based on time? thanks for the info. Plan on calling Porsche dealer tommorow.
  11. I originally had the paint wear away on the rear passenger side ashtray. I was still under warranty so I took it to Porsche dealer. They started the repair and upon getting the door panel off they noticed that the ashtray piece was melted into the door panel. They then gave me a loaner vehicle for the night and next dayed a complete door panel from Atlanta to the dealership and replaced the entire door panel. I figured that it must have been something wrong with that particular panel thus the "melting." However, when the paint began to wear on the rear drivers side door I was out of warranty s
  12. for those who want to know how to replace the rear door ashtrays and are not contributing members here is my experience: I originally had the paint wear away on the rear passenger side ashtray. I was still under warranty so I took it to Porsche dealer. They started the repair and upon getting the door panel off they noticed that the ashtray piece was melted into the door panel.

  13. So I dropped it off at the shop yesterday and they kept it for the day. Told them all of the signs that I had noticed. Upon returning they said they had been monitoring all day, had cleared codes and codes had not returned. I stated that the codes normally only return in the morning after it has sat overnight. They then asked to keep car overnight but my ride had already dropped me off. So they gave me a volt meter and told me to check my battery level in the morning and that it should be between 12.25 and 12.5. When I tested the car this morning before starting it was 12.36. I then drove t
