  1. My (new to me ) 2007 C4 6spd is quick!!, but I had a GPS in it I noticed a discrepancy between the speeds shown. I checked some local radar controlled speed signs & they confirmed that the speedo is reading 3 KPH fast through the rangefrom 30 kph up. I checked rear tire size (305/30 19 Pzeros) & the car only has 6000 Km on it, so they must be original. Is this common? Is there a way to use the computer to correct it? Is the stealer likely to help, laugh or rub his hands in greedy glee? Mike
  2. No time for pics yet, still exploring the driving, which easily made up for the early grief! What a car! I tried the CTEK & it seemed to charge. Wheels & tires are next Mike
  3. One week ago today I took delivery of a 2007 C4. I thought I'd share my first experiances. I was overwhelmed by performance, acceleration, cornering, the finances.I bought it. It had 5400km on it, a new car basically, with a year left on the factory warrentee.Which turned out to be a good thng as the passenger side seat recline switch broke before I got off the lot. Seven hour drive home was fabulous.The lights were the most impressive. That & the effortless performance. Sadly, when my wife got in the next morning for a first ride, the seat back wouldn't come up... & the battery was dead. You never get a second chance to make a first impression. I spoke to the Porsche dealer who'd inspected the car "battery was fine when we had it". "Did the PO drive it 24km a week? Did they use the battery maintainer?" No to both I'm sure. No help there. Good news is, the forum steered me to Interstate & when the seller agreed to pay, my daughter picked up an MTP-H8, son & i put it in. I even found a metric nut in 30 years of English car parts to use in the tray. I used a battery charger to bridge the cicuit & keep "the brain" alive while we swapped out the the battery.Started right up, codes intact. Managed to get the knob off the recline switch & raise the seat, my wife got a ride all is good. Sooo do I need an extended warrentee? Already got the CTEK US 3300 with lighter attachment. Is that the right one? AFAICT from the site, 18" wheels with Pirrellis or Alpins is the way to go in the snow.Any recent opinions? Tx for the help, past & future Mike
