  1. acat2002 I don't have a TT, rather a 2008 CS. I had the same symptoms and a warranty repair corrected the intermittent coolant odor. There is a TSB for the 2008 CS regarding the factory using too much, or the wrong type, of lubricant when originally installing (if memory serves) the thermostat o-ring. Parts replaced, under warranty, included: (1) 948-106-101-03 Intake Socket, water; (1) 948-106-533-00 Sealant, water pump; (1) 000-043-205-93 Kluberplus grease 10; (1) 000-043-301-05 Antifreeze (3.79 L), and removing and reinstalling the thermostat. Hope this helps. Season's Greetings, erg58
  2. Maybe yes, maybe no. Perhaps K&N wasn't willing to give away enough margin on their product for Porsche to consider an air filter [endorsement] worth their while. I don't really believe that Mobil 1 is the best engine lubricant on the planet. Just my humble opinion. Mudman - nice write up BTW, thanks.

  4. That really sucks. +1 on 70Sixers comment. Nice video; have the police caught the guy?
  5. Thank you, I worked just outside of San Diego in Coronado Island a ways back - I miss your weather. That Angeles Crest Hwy to east of you looks like it may get snow - if you ever run into it the Panzer Vagon will get you through it. Cheers.
  6. Thank you - it really was too much fun; these are great in the snow.
  7. “A Good Day for Penguins” Pennsylvania just experienced its second Nor'easter yesterday in the past week. I had some errands to run, because I could, and needed some relief from cabin fever - so I did. I was out for about 6 hours (including stops and lunch) 60 miles driven during the worst of the blizzard. Observations while piloting 2008 Panzer [snow] Vagon S: • Philadelphia metro area received six inches of snow two months ago, at the time I still had my 20 inch wheels and summer performance tires (Vredestein - Sessanta SUV 275/40-20) on. Dumb and dangerous :eek: - between the wider footprint and the tread pattern I may as well had slicks on :cursing: ; • Stock 18 inch wheels a MUST with dedicated snow tires. I swapped out the 20's a couple of weeks ago; • Michelin Latitude Tour HP 255/55-18 are OK, but I'm putting the Pirelli Scorpion Ice and Snows back on. The Pirelli tires are just outstanding in the snow in my opinion; • Forget locking up the differentials - Just Turn PSM OFF; • Forget the brakes - they just don't work above 5 MPH; • PSM Off, with the more aggressive engine mapping, selecting this setting allows you to use Tiptronic downshifting to slow down. The Panzer Vagon downshifts at a higher RMP and is quite controllable - that's the good news; • PSM Off - the bad news - the throttle is very twitchy - very light throttle feathering is required, unless you want to dig four holes; • Don't get cocky and don't be lulled into complacency - you can go right outside the drivability envelope in a heartbeat :o ; • Let it Drift - the stability management software for traction control is simply superb! Frankly unbelievable! Point the steering wheel where you want to go and keep your foot in it (observing previous points) :drive: ; • Take a shovel during your snow excursions - it helps others less fortunate than you; • Red coolant noted under the engine compartment (TSB) during an extended 30 minute stop to render logistical support (I was the ‘Rear View Camera’ to prevent a house from being backed into and did some shoveling) for a stuck tractor trailer until relieved by PA State Troopers; • I need to get the TSB for the water pump gasket swapped out at the dealer – reference http://www.renntech.org/forums/index.php?a...;code=cayenneg2 for contributing members ; • HVAC system doesn't clear the fogged windows after climbing in and out while covered with snow, no matter how much brushing of clothing and banging of boots upon re-entry - keep a window cracked and an absorbent cotton towel handy; • In near Whiteout conditions engaging the Rear Fog Lights is an awesome safety feature; • Thanks to "odix" :thankyou: and the informative thread http://www.renntech.org/forums/index.php?showtopic=31453 on the headlight washers; • Safely back from my snow excursion. Cabin fever a distant memory. I have renewed respect and appreciation for this 'Pig'. :rolleyes: It loves to wallow in the snow - Enjoy it. :D
  8. I just sent an email to Sunset - I'll let you know what I hear back. It's vehicle specific and the parts aren't always listed in PET; some are seals and/or crush rings with upper and lower fill and drain plugs. Suggest you send a request to Sunset via the link under "Special Offers". Their service is outstanding.
  9. TopGun, Boy do I feel lame for missing PORSCHE 2004 CAYENNE TURBO GOLD at the bottom of each, and everyone of your posts. PET doesn't appear to show very many - one would think that there would be seal rings at each - like the oil pan drain. Call Jeff Clark at Sunset Imports - he, and they, are great. I'm getting ready to flush all mine too; 200k miles seems a little too long. Gregg
  10. Andrew, LOL, but I had to try it. I have a MY08 Cayenne S / Bose - I just tried a SACD in PCM (up front) and in the magazine for the CDC-4. Bose does NOT recognized the format. Congratulations on your Panzer Vagon purchase. You'll appreciate the refined mechanical performance and responsiveness .... if only wishing the electronics were only half as advanced could make it so. Gregg
  11. Starship1 welcome to the forum. Do you have Bi-Xenon headlights? If so I think you may be referring to the headlight washer jet covers. They pop up out of the recess and blast the headlight lenses clean. The headlight washers are briefly referenced on page 122 in your owners manual.
  12. Mike, Happy to throw in my two cents. I can't tell you how helpful this forum has been to me. Thank you. Gregg
