On the contrary! It should put you at ease.

One day I saw them and debated with myself if they were supposed to be there; finally decided to remove them and see if the car fell apart.
All well so far.

Pic added; they are very heavy duty

You do realize that your car just lost 25 hp, right?

Same here.

Mine (Touring) works fine. Only thing so far: Airbag Module had to be replaced; the old one triggered false alerts / emergency calls with Porsche Assist.

Besides, my gear shifter moves a bit back and forth in 4th gear, but this seems to be normal according to Porsche.

Funny, but my friend also had this problem. Car called to emergency center with the message "airbad deployed" many times. He had to instruct emergency service to ignore messages from his car at all.

I don't know how/if this was resolved. It it still the subject, I'll let him know it's airbag module fault.

Default Tires Rubbing..

When the steering wheel is turned all the way in either direction, the tires rub badly. This issue is especially apparent and made worse if you have the lifter in the ‘up’ position. I’m surprised this isn’t brought up more often..

In Switzerland, all 991.2 GT3s are currently subject to a recall from Porsche to exchange the Airbag module. I had mine replaced already in December 2018 and the issue did not recur after the exchange.

Oh yes, oil leak. Had my techs check on this upon my GT3's arrival at the dealership. Fortunately no evidence of it but keeping my eye on it.

My non-touring GT3 does this as well in 4th when load is applied or removed. Zero movement in any other gear.
