Not all 991 or 991.2 come with active mounts. The Rennline mounts come as a kit with 3 sets of different insert bushings, yellow ( soft ) blue ( medium ) red ( stiff ) I am not sure exactly how stiff the active mounts get when in stiff mode but the Rennile mounts with yellow bushings are 10X stiffer than the OEM standard mounts. You can easily wiggle the long bolt in the OEM mount by hand back and forth, Rennline mount no budging it. I have no plans to swap to the stiffer inserts as the yellow feel great.. Quality and fit is excellent.

One can get Pink Pig key covers on ebay as well.

Are the "PORSCHE" puddle lights plug-n-play?

Got my second year service done at the dealer with about 11k miles on my 2018 991.2 4s. 1000 bucks for oil change, brake flush, cabin filter plus some inspections and straightening out my rear wiper arm which suffered some damage from a car wash. No problems though. I have been seeing lower than normal levels of boost but there were no fault codes so nothing they could do. No water pump issues or leakage. All good until November for the winter tire/wheel swap. Very reliable car. Car consumed no oil between changes.

BTW got a new base Cayenne loaner. Hated it. Big, floaty, light steering, laggy engine but interior was OK. I did not like the rectangular screen at all. The controls were very simple and I liked the new gauge cluster.

The pleasure of driving the new Cayenne loaner was worth about 250. And about 250 was for the complimentary wash and vaccum, the nice showroom, bottled water and coffee, and the pretty receptionist. So the real price was about 500.
Yeah, I have to check out the local independent garage once my warranty is up in 2021. They are cheaper. I used them for my Boxster once and their price was about 70% of the dealer.
Assuming I keep the car out of warranty.

I don't see snacks. No snacks is a showstopper.

Haha..good one. Of course there were snacks and juice etc. Premium service. They don't even make me walk up to my car. It is brought to the door. Of course they charge a pretty penny for all this. Come to think off it, I get the same treatment at the Volvo dealer I use for my wife's car. But servicing a Volvo is much cheaper.

I have the first service on my Carrera T on Friday here in the UK. I’ll post on here, so comparisons can be made. My car will only be about 15.5 months old, but it racks up a highish mileage. No brake fluid change yet, as car won’t be 2 years old until next April.

P.S. I wouldn’t mind a Cayenne as a loan car, as it’s about the only Porsche model that I haven’t had as a loaner yet.

I got the new Cayenne for a few days as well. It's a really cool car and that Sat view map is insane... However IMO the tech is just way-too-much for a Porsche 911 which is what the 992 is getting. It's very involving and distracting from the drive itself. Fine for the Cayenne.

I also agree on your point about the loaner being worth 250 along with the snacks.. My dealer has a nice assortment of high quality beverages, chocolates, cookies, candy, chips, and 2 espresso machines. I could easily pig out over there FIJI WATER FTW.

I agree. The tech would be overkill in a 911 but that is just me of course. I was dizzy just looking at the sat map. Can't drive with that on the screen.
The new Cayenne was a big disappointment to me. I didn't like it at all but then I am not used to big crossovers.

No oil change in 17K+ miles ? in US it is 10K at max and many here on the forum think that's too high
