I never assumed Porsche is always right as evidenced throughout the years, it just baffles me that with all the supposed 'great' German engineering of these cars that this stuff ends up having the potential to cause major issues when the fix would have been so simple and inexpensive during the manufacturing process. Oh well, one of life's mysteries. Thanks again for clearing this up.
Not that three wrongs make a right at Mercedes and BMW reliability...

Should rephrase - What happened to Germans being considered the epitome of engineering - perhaps just an old wive's tale?

Out daily drive is a BMW 116i from 2013, 115,000 kms with lots of engine issues (Peugeot engine!!!!). Needed new chains, big problem with some cam valve.
We love our Nissan 350Z convertable. 125,000 kms, NO big problems. Just oil, tires, clutch slave cilinder.....
Now I'm working on my Porsche 997, 130,000 kms. The ultimate boy dream! The engine needs new cilinder slaves, new valve guides (bronze) etc.....
Spend a little fortune untill now…….
