How is your PS pump wired Tom? Mine only powers up with the engine running and after the alternator comes on line. As such, I can have the ignition ON without any drain due to the pump.

I think this is related not to the failure of the hub per se but rather a failure of the OEM center lock system which is part of the hub. This is why the whole wheel came off in that case. I suspect...

Yes. All I know is that Porsche resorts to high strength exotic metals for that particular piece for a reason. If the material is not the proper grade or tolerance, it may flex minutely which can...
