Porsche apparently have a test for the Panamera charging port door and if it passes, they will not replace it. They get a 500 pound gorilla to thump it - if it opens = pass. Mine is even worse after...

I am sure that WLTP was a large factor but I feel it is more than that in the UK. Say a few years ago, when I was in my dealer, which I have used for the last 15 years, there were always a few...
