  1. My C2s tiptronic slector lever becomes really hard to shift out of drive and into N, R or P after anything more than a 2minute run. The car is an November 04, I bought it 3 months ago from an independent dealer in the UK. AFAIK its been out of the OPC network since 06. The gears shift fine and the switches on the steering wheel work fine, its just the selector lever. A local independent has had a look and replaced a bush in there somewhere as he's seen this problem before, but this has made no difference. Has anyone else had this problem (is it in fact a normal thing - this is my first experience of a Porsche - but both my other cars are autos and dont have this problem)? Or is it something that can be remedied simply? I found a thread on the 987 section here, where there was apparently a recall, but how would this affect me, would I have to pay the OPC to rectify it? Cheers for any help.
  2. I'm having the exact same issue with my 997.1 (04) car. Because I've only just bought it from an independent, how do I stand getting this sorted out at my OPC? THanks for any advice, Simon
