Manual wasn't available when I ordered my 2014 but if it was I would have ordered PDK anyway, without regret. I get as much enjoyment from driving my PDK equipped GT3 (in manual mode) as I did from...

Peter,

Well, that's what I've decided after sleeping on this. I've also ordered a set of ignitors per Ed's (SmokinGTS) advice and will replace the old ones at the same time as I do the plugs and...

Hi Ed: My car has few miles (probably a lot less than yours) and I've experienced absolutely no symptoms of drivability or performance issues to date so I think I'll wait until next time to do the...

That's something I'd prefer to avoid, Rob. ;)

Not to beat a dead horse at this point, but what you experienced is a symptom of plug degradation, not a cause. I just wonder what happens to the plug...

Aside from the fact that I was dreading the 90 mile round trip to the dealer, wasting a full day, and spending $550 on a plug change, I was curious as to what kind of degradation occurred in the...

Requesting opinions on spark plug replacment interval

The factory maintenance schedule specifies spark plug replacement for my 2014 GT3 every 12,000 miles, but no later than every two years regardless of mileage.

What is the rationale behind the 2...

Glad you've been lucky so far. I prefer not to take chances with ****hole shops precisely because I don't want scratched wheels, damaged TPMS, or worse. ;)



I do the same. My...

You don't need to take your wheels to a Porsche dealer, but I do think you should be selective. There are plenty of "reputable" shops that might be fine for most work, and that I would trust with my...

The CL bolt in the pic below is representative of those on my almost 4 1/2 year old 991.1 GT3, so the service manager you spoke to is definitely wrong; discoloration doesn't happen to every CL...

About 7000 miles on my first set which included a mix of back road driving, highway miles, and 15 or so autocrosses. With no AXs I think I could have more than doubled that mileage. The SC2's seem to...

A quick follow up on my rodent-chewed FAL.

I found a business on eBay out of Great Britain who would sell me the exact DIN spec and size tubing that was used in my old FAL pump/accumulator...

Yeah. Several neighbors have cats and there are also foxes, owls, and other predators roaming around so you'd think the truck would be relatively safe parked outside, but apparently not. I think Max...
