I don't know about you guys but I just don't like going to dealers for service even under warranty. especially since I have my own shop. Couple questions arise... Does anyone make an inexpensive code reader for the OBDII Porsche's? Peake makes a nice one for pre-OBDII BMWs and it's a godsend as it will reset the oil and inspection lights as well as the Check Engine light as well as informing you of all the engine related fault codes. For $149 it's a tool that is a must have for every independent shop and dealers as well. It would be great if someone made a tool like this for Porsche's as well, any ideas?

Second, anyone have any experience with dealers letting you perform the warranty work yourself and them giving you the part(s)? I know I have a bad O2 sensor and I can easily just change it myself, am I dreaming to think that a dealer will give me tha new O2 sensor under warranty?

This is the second time the CE light has come on in a few hundred miles. First time the dealer plugged it in and found it to be an O2 sensor, they told me there was a good chance that it would fault again and the sensor would need to be replaced. Car has approx. 2500mi on it.

Thanks and thanks again Loren for this site and your extensive Porsche knowledge.
