  1. Hi Everyone, I hope that you are all well. Been a long time since I've been on here! I'm having a bit of a strange issue that I haven't been able to find any information on. Up until about 2 hours ago I was able to open my trunk from the trunk release and the trunk would raise up and stay raised up. After a 25 minute drive back home, when I re-opened the trunk lid again at the trunk release, the trunk would not stay "locked" in it's open position. After a few seconds the lid would gently start to fall back towards it's close position before slamming shut. Not very safe! Any thoughts
  2. Hi 3Ball, I realise that it has been many months, however I am yet to fully address this problem. I initially decided to live with it, however since the pad need replacing, now seems like an opportune time to consider switching to ceramics. Have you had any further problems beyond the 6000 miles? Thanks in advance!
  3. Hey Bill, Thank you for your great response! The detail went well, it feels a lot better, however there remains a few bits and pieces that need my attention. A few marks on the leather seem left over. Strange, but perhaps they weren't 'scrubbed' well enough! The car had about 40,000Km (or 21,000 miles approx) when I bought it. I was told that the first owner did carry out a brake job, but I am not sure what he did. I will have to check with the dealer to find out. The brakes remain stock. Any thoughts? The noise is driving me crazy - it really comes and goes. Certain dayd it isn't arou
  4. Anyone got any answers to my queries? The brakes are still giving me a bit of a hard time - should I consider ceramics?
  5. My apologies for bringing this back up to the top! I am facing this exact issue with a 06 CTTS that I just picked up. The brakes are very noisy at low speeds, the problem tends to come and go. Has anyone found a workable solution? Did the spray cleaner work? Should I have the (only) dealer check them out? Thanks for all your help! Will it make a difference if I swap to ceramic pads? Any recommendations? Would I need to change rotors? Questions questions. This is all very new to me!
  6. Hi Everyone, I went ahead and fired the trigger on the 06 Turbo S. I couldn't resist! It's felt great over the last two days. I have a few quick questions (I've had a look through the forums, but haven't found satisfactory answers for some of the questions): Is the Turbo S meant to come with it's own 'Turbo S' owners manual? Mine came with a Turbo manual. The only reference that I see to the Turbo S is on the back! I ran the VIN number through the decoder, and again it only comes back with 'Turbo'. The brakes. Ah, the brakes. Lot's of resonance rather than scraping. Does anyone have
  7. Wow. Thank you for all your great responses! Where should I start? I have not gone with a decision either way yet. A little bit about Porsche out in the UAE and more specifically Dubai. A one dealer policy runs out here (i.e. Dubai) and one in Abu Dhabi (the capital), which means that there tends to be limited negotiation on sticker prices - unless you know someone! That can usually knock the price down by 10% or more. I do not expect prices to fall in the near term since I do not expect Porsche themselves to knock down their prices considering that the turned a massive profit in 2008/
  8. Hi Everyone, I hope you're all well. I am interested in taking the plunge by hopefully buying a Cayenne over the next few weeks. I have two options, which I need advice on: Option 1: 2006 Cayenne Turbo S Approximate Price: USD 64,000 Already depreciated 520 bhp Better looks (subjective!) Option 2: 2009 Cayenne S Approximate Price: USD 73,000 Brand New (depreciation) New Shape Better re-sale value I have started off the list by indicating some advantages / disadvantages. In essence I would like some opinions on whether it would be better to buy the 2006 CTS or g
