Lost the original valet key. Ordered a new one from dealer and picked it up today. I didn't drive the car to the dealer so was able to test only upon returning home. The new valet key unlocks the door but, although it turns in the ignition switch it doesn't start the engine. Also, 10 sec. after unlocking the door the horn alarm goes off, regardless of whether the valet key is in the ignition switch. Also, after opening the door the OBC display says "Key 1", which is what it says for my full, fobbed key. The dealer hasn't returned my call as yet. Does the dealer have to program the car to accept the new valet key?

2006 Carrera S I need new rear tires, but not new front ones. My Porsche dealer service manager says I can't mix tire makes/brands between front and back. Currently I have Bridgestone Potenza Pole Position A/S on both (different sizes front/back). I'd like to replace the rear tires with Continental ExtremeContact DWS in order to save about USD $100. The car is not raced. Would I be taking any serious risk with my plan?
