Thanks JFP. I appreciate the feedback, it's minor right now and tightening the shift cables helped alot. I'll keep us all tuned in .
Thanks for your reply JFP. I have been looking at the other threads concerning unusual vibrations in other models and there seems to be no shortage. If this is normal then thats fine too, I can live with the annoyance for now but in as much as it is a new car it will become Porsche's problem sooner than later. I thought an easier solution could be found in this forum. In as much as the car needs to be driven some miles before it starts buzzing, something needs to get heat soaked first. I don't DT the car or drive it roughly so it is hard to imagine that there is an engine problem. My trips are generally 200 miles or more and it's out on the interstate where the vibration begins. As I said in my original thread the buzz can be felt in other parts of the car but it manifests itself in the shifter. In as much as it is on trailing throttle it is mostly a downhill event but is prevelent when on and off of the throttle. Depress the clutch and it is gone. Not tire balance. I have read about the plastic base the shifter rides in, exhaust bracket failures, and other maladies but none associated with this model. I'm honestly thinking that it is something simple like bleeding the clutch or different oil in the tranny. You can feel the gears mesh when you shift, something I did not feel in a new car I drove at another Porsche dealer. Just looking for some guidance here. Thanks.
The wheels are in perfect balance. Runs smooth as glass. The shifter simply buzzes. I can hold my finger ring against it and create different tones. Will go away when I shift and come back after a few more shifts. Generally occurs after a couple miles of driving.
I have a 2011 911S with a shifter that vibrates, trailing throttle in 6th between 2200 RPM and up, irratically, and only when well warmed up. The dealer readjusted the shift cables which cured it for about 800 miles. The car has 7000 miles since new. It will go away when I shift from 6th back to 5th and back to 6th. It also will buzz in 3rd under throttle. it can be felt but less noticably through the rest of the car as well. It seems that the stick shift takes the brunt of it. Thanks!
