  1. That is fantastic information in numerous regards, thank you for updating this thread with this information!
  2. Ya man, I like French Canadians. One of my best friends grew up in Montreal and went to Mcgill. I also dated a girl there that went to Mcgill. Met her when I was with him partying at cinq à sept down near Old Montreal. She was a cocktail waitress, I think the place was called Quartier (I just looked on Google maps and it's something else now), and thought I was a hockey player rolling with my entourage but I digress 😃 Anyway, back to your original topic before I got off on a tangent, please let me know if you use the breakout box later. I'm still curious other things you would
  3. Nah, all those 8000 km you are doing biking this year is going to leave your heart and body very strong so you will live a very long life 🙂 I was always in decent shape but lost 15 lbs when I started taking the bike to work and I get better marks every year on my biometric screening. When I got my life insurance policy I was disappointed to hear that everyone in the company pays the same rate, I was hoping my risk-adjusted pricing was going to be much better! Chevy Bolt is a fine car and the neighbors we are friends with behind us have one. A coworker also has one that I rode in
  4. I see. I was curious because the Porsche/Durametric and Audi/VCDS tools are very good, I have first-hand experience with those, but I have read that they are not nearly as good for other manufacturers. Wasn't sure about Mercedez. This would actually influence my decision somewhat on choosing a brand -- need good tools. Yes, I have thought about getting a Tesla, I know a lot of people have them, also very much so all over here in the USA and there are super chargers going up all over. I think Tesla is the best electric car technology and electric cars are better for sure IMHO.
  5. Loren's a stand up guy, of course he will help anyone whenever he can that's just the kind of person he is! Thanks! Family is great and I take care of them but no one ever told me it was going to be this much work 😉 I just spent the last half hour rubbing my 6 year old's back because she always wants me to before bed. LOL, these kids are so spoiled (mostly with attention not things). My wife grew up in Berlin so we are huge into biking. I just ordered my 6 year old a new Linus bike and it's on back order until November because of COVID. My father-in-law has a second home in I
  6. Ya, the years ago by, too fast. The last time I talked to you was about 7 years ago. Since then I moved to Manhattan, got married, had two kids, got a more stressful job, moved out of Manhattan!! I sold the TT when I moved into NYC -- the City is hard on cars plus there's nowhere really to drive it. Bought a 2014 Audi Q5 2.0T for my wife and small kids more recently and I take the train/bike into work to keep life simple. Pretty funny if you think about it. I'm probably the only person in the world that went from driving a 911TT into work to now taking a combination of bike + public train
  7. Ya summer is over, booo. I just did a bunch of maintenance because I don't like working in my garage when it's freezing cold. Ok, when you say you bought the breakout box from this gentleman I assume you mean the seller that I provided, correct? Assuming that's what you mean, there goes my idea 🙂 I was hoping whoever sells the box (like the link I provided) would have full documentation. This is the first time I have seen that Bosch breakout box. What is an example of something that you would use that breakout box to diagnose? I know it allows you to isolate each s
  8. My friend...long time no see! That is a TOP NOTCH diagnostics set! I see someone is selling the entire kit on eBay and it includes the breakout box. I wonder if you contacted the seller if they have any documentation for it? I assume the complete kit must come with documentation. Porsche System Tester PST2 WWW.EBAY.COM The tester and all accessories were lightly used and in top conditon. - 1 USED BOSCH Protective Case with Keys. - 1 Used BOSCH Rubber Case. - 1 New 19-Pin OBD Adapter Cable.
  9. My two cents, you've already got one of the experts on it, but don't talk to the seller's mechanic -- always get your own. These codes are not typical. A good, clean car should have no codes because a good owner will address issues as soon as they come up knowing nothing good comes from kicking the can down the road. Also the seller's mechanic's explanation is somewhat suspect. If it was something as simple as the battery why didn't they just replace the battery? Such a cheap and easy fix if they know that to be the problem, doesn't make sense. Could be one of the w
  10. Gbox out of Boulder, CO gonna be your best bet. Hopefully the OEM Mobilube PTX was the only oil ever put in the gearbox since using other non-OEM oils can cause damage. Call Stan at Gbox and tell him the problem and he will be able to tell you how to proceed. No one in the US knows more about these gearboxes than he does.
  11. Nice pics! Agree about the front lip, it's really really low. It scraped just a little bit on the entering incline for my front driveway before I realized you have to pull in at an angle realllll slow ?
  12. That looks familiar (yours is a convertible though which I'm a fan of). Your plan sounds pretty smart to me. There are also several outstanding members here who have TT's that will be able to help you when you need it, it's a good group. The Mezger is a beast, try not to get addicted to boost ?
  13. Just my two cents coming from a 2002 911TT (also silver), it's a high-performing beast of a car at stock. Mine came with a ECU tune but it made emissions fail (anything other than the stock flash makes it fail a checksum like validation) despite coming with a OBD II tool that was supposed to flash the car back and forth between stock and the tune. Florida may be easier. The most surprising thing though was when I took the tune off and went back to stock ECU I couldn't tell a difference -- the boost was the same, etc. I can't say that I've tried every flash out there but I don't think you'r
