  1. Turns out it was the front drive shaft. The CV joint by the transfer case was trashed. I guess 140k hard miles will do that.
  2. I took a look there, it doesn't seem to be the issue. Maybe I'll take the rotors back off and check very closely, but I'm thinking maybe it's in the diff or is a cv joint.
  3. I have 140k miles on my cayenne and have kept up with it really well. I've already replaced the cardan shaft busing with an EPS one and replaced the front control arms about 30k miles ago. I'm not sure if it could be related, but a week ago I changed my front pads (eps yellow) and rotors (x-drilled) and within a few days, I started hearing this really strange sound. It almost sounds like I have a baseball card sticking in my wheel spokes, but more metallic and off and on.

  4. Thanks, I actually did look it up now and I can swap it for a nominal fee. I'll try to do that.
  5. I did some searching and couldn't find anything. But, I just installed an aftermarket head-unit (Pioneer x8500bhs) because my OEM headunit went south. I had a lifetime sirius account on the car, but now I don't have sirius at all and I don't want to buy another adapter and have to pay for the service. Is there anyway to get the OEM tuner and antenna to work with my aftermarket headunit? This way I can just keep on my current subscription.
