Is no-one still using the original Porsche one...?

Good spot, the one from carparts for less is the same one

Good value at £19

I obviously got discount from Eurocarparts but not 50%😬

Would you buy it again and does it give an accurate reading? That's one downside to analogue pressure gauges! If yes and yes I'll go for it.

Fed up with having to go to the petrol station for air for our cars, hence on the lookout for one for home. Difficult to find one that's well reviewed universally... what


I will have to do comparison against my standard gauge.

I will report back 👍🏻

The one in my 993 doesn’t have a gauge so I’m in the market for one that does.

Tested the compressor on my Boxster spare wheel today, the car car is new to me so I’m working my way though it, tyre pressure was twenty psi (should be sixty) it’s twenty years old and looks like it’s never been out of the car or checked. 😬

Anyway to confirm the accuracy of the compressor against my good gauge,

Compressor gauge = 50 psi
Standard gauge = 49 psi

Compressor gauge = 60 psi
Standard gauge. = 60 psi

So perfectly acceptable accuracy.
