Listen, if you're going to post relevant information on this thread, you'll be banned in a heartbeat.

Now, I just got my LiquiMoly 0W-40 delivered and am satisfied that it is the perfect oil for every 996!

P.S.--Now I'm back to staring at the avatar with the really nice AR-15 in it...

Linseed oil will spontaneously combust, but only when it comes in contact with the IMS.

LOL! We really need more of this light-hearted banter! It really is a relief from all the other doomsday apoplectic my car will self destruct if I drive it posts. A Happy Veteran's Day to all and respect for all who have served. Now go out and drive your Porsche with Freedom and Pride!

Instead of replacing my IMS bearing all at once, I purchased a new hybrid ceramic bearing and have ground it up into shavings. I add about an ounce of shavings at each oil change. I plan to do this on an ongoing basis, so my IMS bearing will be completely replaced every 18 months or so. I know this is working because I see a corresponding amount of the old IMS bearing stuck to my magnetic drain plug.

I figure this, along with adding about a teaspoon of ground air oil separator to each tank of gas, will keep my car running perfectly for years to come, and it's much easier to budget these replacements than doing the work all at once.

I'd like to purchase new tires for my car that is driven exclusively on the street and never above the posted speed limit.

Should I go with the Pirelli P-Zero or the Toyo r888?

Gaah! Your car will explode if you do not use N-rated tires. What the hell is wrong with you?

Also, I noticed the tires I selected are not Porsche approved. Will that cause the vehicle to be completely undriveable or void the nonexistent warranty on my 12 year old car?

Porsche is legally allowed to confiscate your car if you drive it with non-N-rated tires. Your car will be examined upon seizure for additional infractions (such as the use of non-approved engine oils and non-OEM brake rotors). If a total of three non-Porsche-approved infractions are found, your car will be crushed and you will be required to drive a Daihatsu Charade for a year.

Note that the use of any Home Depot component (like the intake cap hack or using a garage door seal in lieu of a Tequipment spoiler) is grounds for execution. In the event you are executed, your closest family member will be required to drive the Diahatsu.

The cost of the execution is also passed along to your family. The execution is carried out by firing squad, and the .45 ammunition is Porsche-supplied and thus costs $286 per round.

Porsche just relabels Bosch air, so save a few bucks and order directly from Bosch.
