theOne replied to wookimdc's topic in 997-1 Series (Carrera, Carrera 4, Carrera 2S, Carrera 4S)Try a new set of Porsche N-specification tires.
Hi,Well I have got 06 987 now at 51000km with just normal servicing every two years at Porsche with new front rotors and pads all round, and one new set of tyres, that is all so far. In fact my last car was a 01 986 and that was just the same, dam good cars. You need to drive them every day, all year like I do. Good luck.

Hi, The short answer is yes you do if you want to drive at below +7c and be safe. I have Michelin Pilot Alpin PA2 on my 987, they are first class for cold weather driving. This year have driven down to -21c. Good luck.
theOne replied to gavins's topic in 997-1 Series (Carrera, Carrera 4, Carrera 2S, Carrera 4S)Try one of the three Porsche Centers in Saudi Arabia. Good luck with it.
theOne replied to Dikke Leo's topic in 996 Series (Carrera, Carrera 4, Carrera 4S, Targa)Hi, I too live next to Germany and drive on there Autobahns, at least once a month at high speed. Your 911 spent the last nine years going slow most of the time in the USA, I would change the spark plugs, plus are your wheels standed size or bigger? if bigger that would slow you down a lot. And turn off the AC on a high speed test. Good Luck with it.
theOne replied to nghiaho58's topic in 996 Series (Carrera, Carrera 4, Carrera 4S, Targa)Hi, Merry Xmas and happy new year to you. I got one in the post today as a Xmas present from my Porsche dealer that I got my car from, and they service it every two years as well. Just put it up looks nice. Email your dealer and ask them. Last year got a bottle of honey vodka from them.
The Pirelli's are real winter tires the Nittos are not. Only use tires that are branded with the snowflake-on-the-mountain symbol on them.
