  1. I posted information on both fuse panels with pictures in my install of a Blackvue 650GW dashcam. If not here, then look in 6 speed. Never mind. Found them and attached. Notes on and at bottom of each picture.
  2. On my 2012 Cayenne CTT, I believe you need to drive about 20 miles once you've opened hood in order to check oil level via the console. Until then it will read unavailable. If I recall correctly, one half quart will raise it up one notch.
  3. Long story short, the engine on my 2012 Cayenne Turbo with 6300 miles is being changed after developing a loud ticking/clicking noise. The dealer doing the work is Champion, the world's largest so I have a lot of faith in the job being done well. They will deliver the car back and pickup the loaner in the next day or so. My question is if anyone knows of a checklist to go thru to make sure everything was connected and working? I'm planning a road trip and don't want Murphy's law to mess with my trip, for example discovering something on the trip that I forgot to check it. Any other th
  4. Installation of CTEK 56-864 Battery Charger in Cayenne 958 Installing his charger with this connector which has 3 leds on it to indicate battery condition at all times. First picture is what it looks like under the hood. Red cover hides 3 connectors including one big round post. The negative pipe can be seen just forward (to the left) sticking out. It is simply a conductive pipe attached to the frame. I stuck the camera inside to show how the white acorn nut holds the negative conductive pipe it to the frame. This picture shows a closeup of my use of a stainless ste

  6. From the picture, I can't tell if it takes the male bit or the female socket.
  7. Last night I went into the Porsche USA website and loaded the configuration of the car I'm planning to pick up in about one month. The website asked if I wanted to convert this configuration to the New Model Year configuration. I said OK vs cancel which wouldn't let me continue. It immediately asked me to remove two options if I want the 20" Spyder wheel which was in my configuration that I'm planning to pick up in Leipzig next month!: 17mm spacers for rear wheels and the exterior color wheel extensions. I then noticed there is another (second) 20" Spyder wheel that specifies 9.5" width a
  8. I can't disagree with what you said but I do believe the European delivery specialist (who told me that it cost them $500). Maybe that is what the factory charges back to them, who knows? I'm sure Porsche gets a significant discount from Navtec, after all Garmin Europe City Navigator NT is easily purchased for about $100 and likely it's very similar data. This is the same gal that happily told me the good news of the new program being free instead of the previous 2.5% so I truly felt she is "on my side" as opposed to the typical salesman. In my business, network security, I often see h
  9. I am planning European delivery pickup in May, 2012. Atmy request they will have the European maps installed in NAV system. Cost is $500 to Porsche of which I will pay half and Porsche the other half. When car arrives dealer in US, they will program back the US maps at no cost. European maps will remain on system inactive, I'm told. Due to cost to Porsche, the European maps are not normally installed with European delivery, instead they loan you free a small GPS unit that you return when you bring back the vehicle to the factory. BTW, the European delivery is now free to the customer al
