Solid questions

About the PDK clutch oil change, manual says 60,000 miles or no later than every 6 years. Michael from Driver's Choice Motors told me we could wait another year due to the low mileage (14,000) and he knows I do not track my cars.

She is a C2 (RWD). So, no AWD controller oil to change.

About spark plugs, I really don't know what happened. All previous maintenance has been performed at my local Porsche dealer. Before her warranty expired, I requested a major 4 years service and I got a huge bill but (sincerely) I didn't check what was suggested in the manual since the Porsche dealer should have know all the information. This week, before I schedule an appointment with Michael, I checked all my Porsche dealer's invoices and I found nothing about spark plugs replacement. Perhaps they have replaced the spark plugs two years ago with the 4 years maintenance service and forgot to charge me (I doubt that).

Thanks for your reply.

The reason I asked is because I am coming up on my 6 year service and although my mileage is a bit higher than yours it's a long ways from the 60,000 mile.

Regards,

CF

I took these photos last Wednesday (September 21, 2016) while preparing her to ride the Tail of the Dragon. About 2 rolls of 1.88" 3M blue painters tape and almost 5 hours of work with some pit stops at the fridge

Yup... 3M Painters Tape in Mexico Blue (PTS Color)

The rest of the car was protected by wax and my crossed fingers.

Funny, you kinda started a trend on those Turbo 11 wheels with the turbo offsets on a C2 body. Gave me confirmation that they fit without rubbing

Been looking for a clean set for a while now. Not to many available up North. Very expensive new.

Great combination white with grey shoes.
An interesting thread to follow, thanks for taking the time to post
