  1. Hi guys, I have improved the problem with a low teck solution. I got a steering wheel cover from Canadian Tire for $15 bucks to make it more thicker and it helps a lot. The original steering wheel is too thin for me. The wheel being thicker makes me feel more confident and there is less play. I am now searching for more of an elegant way to thicken the wheel using alcantara cloth. Will let you know if I can find a cost effective solution.
  2. Thank you all for your input. I am still trying to resolve the issue with the shop and will let you know if I can find a solution. Now that I have driven the car for several months, it maybe because I have never drove a rear engine car before and the feeling of floating at high speed may be the result. I also notice that the steering feeling is very light at high speed, more so than other performance cars. At high speed, especially in a turn with undulations, the steering feels too light and I find myself grabbing the wheel very tightly as not to move it inadvertently. Even with this iss
  3. Thanks for the advice Oskibear, An aftermarket nose makes sense but I might try to play with the front shocks first. Changing to a heavy duty shock up front may help to keep it in better control. I will take it back to the shop later in the week and see what their recommendation is and I will post it afterwards.

  4. Thanks for your post AIB, I am so glad to hear that it is not just my imagination. I was told by the shop that everything was tight and normal. I am not happy with the way the car is and I will take it back to the shop and have it checked again. I do not believe the alignment is the issue. If I cannot find a solution, I will try coilovers to see if this fixes the problem. If you find a solution, please let me know and if I find one, I will surely let you know. Kim
  5. Thanks for the reply Paul, That is what the guys at the shop recommended (but they didn't mention the shims). They said the factory settings makes the car feel like that at high speeds. So I had the alignment and camber adjustment done last week and it did improve the drive. However, it still wants to wander at high speeds. Changing the bumper did cross my mind but I want to leave the car as stock as much as possible. That said, I would consider going with coilovers if this would be the only option. I am surprised the 997 drives like this. I have a BMW X6 that steers more perscise at
  6. Hi all, I have a 2005 Carrera that is completely stock except for new wheels and tires (Victor Equipment and Hankook Evo's). The steering felt really loose so I had the alignment and camber adjusted at Autowercks in Woodbrige Canada. It tightened up the steering making it more stable but it still wanders at speeds over 60 mph and is a bit scary after 140 mph. The car has a floating feeling as well especially in a turn at high speed if the road has some undulations. This is my first Porsche and I love the car but this problem is really bothering me. Any suggestions? Kim
