Was not thinking of that when first reading this one. You are correct. Clamping the E brake onto nearly red-hot rotors will warp them and/or make impressions - either turns rotors into near-junk. Not a good idea for Porsches unless there was some sort of rotor temperature sensing scheme that would block the E brake turning on when the engine is turned off. That scheme would also need an attention getting light notifying you that the E brake is not set.

sunroof open or tilted plus about 130km/h results in the high spoiler setting.

Based on aero and speed.

The 911 magically makes men 50% more handsome and women 100% more beautiful.

Not sure if this is just my car-but on my 2018 Carerra T, for apple carplay to work-once its plugged into the USB in the console the phone has to be unlocked for it to show up on the display.

Interesting. I have a 2018 C2S and that is certainly not the case. Does not need to be unlocked for me.

It does on my '19. You can immediately relock the phone, but to get Carplay to connect, you have to unlock for a moment. Same is true on my wife's Q5. Now, we both have PINs and finger print security set up, so there may be a way around it without those things.

On the topic of the raised spoiler , here’s a silly one...

If you manually lower the spoiler just slightly you can have the long brake light and the short integrated brake light come on together.

Default CarPlay from lock screen

On iPhone go settings then general then CarPlay. You will see a setting to allow CarPlay from lock screen.

After I explained what the officer was seeing, turning the rear fog light on and off three times with various brake light activations, I was being thanked for my time and patience and told to drive safely home. "Twenty-two years on the force and I've never seen anything like that" the cop said to me as he shook my hand and walked back to his cruiser. I've been using rear fog lights in bad weather conditions consistently since 1996... ...I always figured they were at least common knowledge to law enforcement.
I was pulled for the same exact reason. The cop had no idea about the 3rd light. I went through the same explanation. He let me go with no ticket.

The frunk on the C4S/4WD models perfectly fits a 27.5" MTB tire, but not a 29". 2WD versions allows you to fit a 29".

My dumb question - how do I partially lower mine manually? Thanks.
