  1. Definitely not for me and, depending on what you believe, as a result of the takeover by Volkswagen, it will die in 2018. That said, Porsche's major growth area is China so maybe they'll like it over there. I'd be more interested in a short wheelbase 2 door version, a latter day 928. I'm visiting the plant where they are made in Leipzig next month, so it will be interesting to see how busy they are.
  2. The dealer is telling me that removing the wheels with the new centre hub lock is a dealer-only operation. They would, wouldn't they? As far as I can see, the car comes with the "socket" to fit over the centre hub nut but you need a huge torque-wrench to move it or a torque multiplier which does not come with the car. Any one know where to source such a beast?
  3. In the finish, I took it to the dealer, free of charge but 3 hours out of my Saturday morning which I could have done without.
  4. I'm in the UK, it's a nonsense that the user cannot change this at will.
  5. I used an EZ-Top hoist imported from the US for an old-style SL I used to have. Worked perfectly and was very useful in getting the hardtop out of the way.
  6. After coming back from dealer service, my doors no longer lock automatically as I set off. The manual talks about getting the dealer to set the option, is there any way this can be done without me going to the dealer?
  7. 2003 C4S, no sunroof. I have three small dents in my roof near the windshield from flying debris which a dent removal company say they can fix if they can get to them. The roof liner seems to be clipped along the front edge but then goes behind the A pillar trim pieces. How easy is it to partially remove all this stuff to gain access and is there a wad of insulating material to get in the way? I can see instructions on other posts for a MY 99, is this the same for my later car?
  8. I've got a 2003 911 C4S and the one thing which grates about it is the quality of the steering wheel stalks. They're cheap, roughly finished and I'm wondering if there are any after-market replacements available?
