  1. I consider myself chastised for the wash interval. Bottom line I will take away is that detergents are bad for the top, and water pressure is potentially too high. I will take to a professional washing operation.
  2. Background: 2006 911 Cabriolet. I'm not super anal about my car, for example, I have to admit that it hasn't been washed for 6 months. :( The local gas station has an automatic car wash called a "laser wash". No brushes - just water/detergent that is sprayed at the car. I'm tempted to put the Porsche through it. Anybody tried anything like this? Any horror stories that will dissuade me from taking this course of action?
  3. Hi all, I replaced the battery on my 2006 911 Cab. Unscrewed the bolt that holds the battery down, and replaced the battery. When it came to screwing the bolt back in, I expected the lower piece to be threaded, but it isn't. So - must have been a nut underneath, of which there is now no sign :( My question: can somebody describe what it looked like originally? Alan
  4. Thanks for the responses, guys. Yes, I think "aroma" is a better term than "smell". Glad that I'm not the only person experiencing this.
  5. I have a 2006 911 Cab with 18,000 miles. After a drive, I park it in the garage, and there's a very distinctive smell (that I can't describe very well). Could be related to tires, oil or brakes. My question is: anybody else get a "distinctive smell" after driving? Or is this something I need to get checked out.
