Just purchased a 2008 CTTS and the previous owner is running a staggered set up Front:275/40/20 Rear:315/35/20. The current tyres Goodyear Wrangler F1 need replacement and I would appreciate some suggestions from the members here.


-The 1st and expensive choice: P-Zeros at 1250 Euros
-Continental Contisport SUV: at around the same price
-And a guy at a local store suggested Atturos AZ850 which are at around 630 Euros.

What do you guys think? Any other suggestions??

Thanks in advance

Is the car a 2006 CttS? There was no 2008 turbo S and the standard tyres on the 2009 turbo S were 295/35-21.

 

From the choices above, I'd probably opt for the Pirellis, as I tyre I prefer the Michelin Latitude Sports, but I don't believe that they are available in your size.

It is a late 2008 production CTTs and the wheels are from the previous owner. 275/40/20, 315/35/20. He probably changed the original wheels with Gemballa one's as the dealer told me. The latitudes are an excellent tyre however not available in this width. I am looking towards the Vredesteins or Contis. I wish Continental DW was available in Greece.

I thought we can not staggered our Cayenne since they are four wheel drive?

 

I bought it like that, and after I checked the difference in diameter is only 0.5. So I guess is not that big of a problem. I wish i could go back to non-staggered but the wheels are Techart Formula 1 which are wider at the rear.

      I had an oil change on the P!G (M1 synthetic) before a trip and that's when the trouble started...
       
      The driver side wheel well makes a gentle creaking sound at idle RPM, which seems to disappear at higher RPM.  It sounded like a small frog quietly chirping in the wheel well and I was worried it was a turbo.  When we popped the hood, there was sound of a vacuum near the intake. The PCV to crankase hose (part #5) collapses while the engine is running and the oil fill port sucks strong vacuum if the fill cap is removed.
       
      My local independent mechanic (I'm some distance from a Porsche specialist) found that hose 14 and 15 are both cracked and identified their failure as causing the sound.  Cause of failure is presumed age/heat. Since replacing those two components are $370-400 in hoses, is there something else we should be looking into as a cause of these pipe failures?  Searching the forums I came upon a discussion that makes me think maybe we should be looking at the PCV valve, air oil separator membrane, and the diverter valves?  I'm wrench-familiar with NA cars and new to turbos so I'd appreciate your input.  Is the restricted airflow or vacuum interruption causing turbo noise?  Has anyone else seen this and what else should I be checking?
       
      We do see the boost gauge work normally or at least what it has historically (under acceleration it hits 0.8 bar/pegged and then holds near 0.6-0.7) before these issues started.  The rest of the car seems to work well, aside from the a sticky secondary air injection check valve on the passenger side.
       

      Hoses 94810721753 and 94810721651 are cracked

      I have a 2009 957 3.6l v6 Cayenne. The battery was dead a few days ago so I replaced it. It now starts up just as it should but when run a diagnostic it says the alternator voltage is high reading 14.72. I’m assuming I need to replace the alternator to remedy this. I can’t find any information about replacing the alternator. Has anyone attempted this? It looks like it might be straightforward  but my concern is whether or not the intake manifold has to be removed in order to get clear access. If anyone has any insight on this I would greatly appreciate it.

      Does anyone have a wiring diagram for the seat on a 2008/957 Cayenne which they can let me have?

      I’m trying to chase a fault where the passenger seat will motor up and down and the backrest will adjust forward and aft, but there is no response from the controls to move the seat unit forwards and backwards, or the four-way lumber support control.
       
      Thanks in anticipation...

      Guys could someone please help...can't believe how difficult it is to get any info on my beautiful 957 cayenne!  So here's hoping right? As you can see in the photo, the right side rear light has got a few dead LEDs in the two top strips... Has anyone tried a repair or got any advice on this? Someone has gotta know about this! In the words of Sam Smith, I know am not the only one

      And now, in exchange for you having to read this, I leave you with a picture of what I found while replacing a bulb yesterday.
