  1. Anyone know a cheap source for these, don't necessarily need to be OEM. I'm told I need new disks front and rear on my MY2005 Cayenne Turbo (modified by Ruf with Turbo S brakes). I've got a quote from Porsche and they want about 1000 USD a disk over here in the UK. Seems ridiculous to me given I can get disks cheaper than that for my GT3 from a top end race manufacturer! Any ideas?
  2. Ok problem still not fully resolved. Sometimes when unlocking the car its still trying to point the mirrors too the sky, beyond the lock stops. It seems like maybe the system needs centreing and reseting? I'm not sure what the prob is, but it seems to be as if the keys are out of sync with each other and because its moving out of bounds its recording positions for each key that are not possible hence ramming into the lock stop and making a bad noise... Any ideas how to fix, or am I kidding myself and need a whole new comfort settings control system?
  3. wow thanks. My PCM crashed and must have set this itself - its a 2004 Turbo...
  4. My memory wing mirrors have started playing up recently and ending up in random places every time I get in the car. This is not good as sometimes its trying to move the mirror beyond its limit. I've also noticed that with the adjuster set to move the right hand mirror, the left hand is moving in unison. With the adjuster set to move the left, only that one changes. Is this likely just to be the switch playing up and needing to be replaced, or do I have a more serious problem?
  5. Hatfield. As I drove the car home from them (I collected from their premises and wired money to owner after a clean bill of health) the engine check light came on when I went to full throttle. You can imagine my horror knowing this was a Ruf modified car and potentially a very expensive problem. Fortunately just the coil packs. My feeling is that the owner blanked the diagnostics and then the OPC didn't check anything properly. They didn't even check the 2nd key worked, headlights turned off on that same trip I got the checklight, phone module didn't work, interior light didn't work, battery
  6. Mine was a bit like that when I bought private having paid for an OPC inspection and its more than 2k work trust me! None of the issues have come back since I changed coil packs, new head light bulbs (not units although they modified mine so that plugs attach to lights not on slider anymore), new battery etc etc. Then all my wheels cracked thanks to british road surfaces (these were 22" Rufs). Ruf did me a deal on replacements though which was good. Anyway it will get better.
  7. My car has a Ruf conversion which includes the Turbo S brakes. Does anyone know if there is a space saver tyre available from Porsche that can clear these callipers as the one in the back of my 05 turbo doesn't!
  8. Not even that I don't think as conductor seems ok. Bit of tape should do it!
  9. Thanks for the attachment. Will help me identify which part I need to order as I've diagnosed the problem. There is part of the seat loom which has been cut my a piece of metal sticking out of the subframe so it was shorting against this. I've moved the cable so it won't hook on it and wrapped some insulation tape around it. All functionality returned and no longer shorting. Ideally I need to replace this bit of loom but not sure whether practical approach is to just tape the bit of frame and loom and leave them for now. Depends on how far the loom goes I guess. Its not very accessible from be
  10. Been thinking about my problem. Given it keeps blowing the fuse, maybe the harness under the seat got caught up in the mechanism when slid forwards by the valetters and cut it shorting it out. Will take a look but not easy to get in there I don't think?
  11. Any idea? I have a RHD cayenne turbo which I took to a hand carwash with inside vallet too. I was there whilst they did this and they did jetwash a bit too much for my liking into the gap between windscreen + bonnet trying to blow out leaves. Anyway they then went on to clean the interior which I didn't watch too carefully. When they gave the car back the drivers electric seat was maximum forwards with backrest straight up and the controls no longer work. Also the steering wheel won't adjust. Passenger side is ok. So any ideas what they have done? I checked the fuses and found that fuse 2
  12. Arghhhhh I think you have it. I've unfortunately got the old type so I'm guessing it would be wiser to sell them than mess around with spacers. What a pain! Thanks for your help.
  13. Hi, I've got a Ruf converted Cayenne which runs on 22" wheels but I've had 2 crack in 2 months so sending back to Ruf for inspection. Meanwhile, I've bought some sport design 20" wheels second hand. The problem is they won't fit over my front callipers!!! I believe the Ruf conversion uses the Turbo S brake callipers? The Ruf wheels that clear ok are : 10J x 22H2 ET50 The Porshe Sport Designs which don't are : 9J x 20H2 ET60 Does this just mean I need 10mm spacers? There is plenty of clearance with the Ruf wheels. Also how will I know if I need longer wheel bolts? Is the rule
  14. Does anyone know the amp ratings of the various aux sockets in the Cayenne, particularly in the boot? TIA Dan
