Mine’s in at Leeds OPC getting new Coolant pipes/elbows after pissing itself whilst delivering presents last week, consequentially running a temperature!

Porsche Assist got to me in 20mins (after waiting 3 hours for my Banks ‘RAC’ membership, took the car in after storing it for the night, and gave me a Merc E-Class smoker whilst it’s being done. Bit spongy on the rear end but very, very smooth! How do you turn the traction off in these Mercs??

The video they sent me said that my nuts were rusty (bit harsh I thought initially, I’ve never met them??!), but on watching it again, saw that the nuts on the exhaust were indeed looking a little crusty. Anyone else had that when it’s been in (997.2 Turbo)?? Is this the Porsche equivelant of Wipers??


Your not a proper turbo owner unless you have rusty nuts,welcome to the club Thumb I have a sports exhaust lying in the garage that I have been putting off fitting as there is no shape left to any of my nuts on the turbos absolute chocolate and a common problem.

The OEM nuts really are made of cheese. It's a very laborious job to replace them (multiply the number of hours you think it is going to take you by at least four). Consider the offer of having them done but replace with quality items, not more of the same!

Mine is getting some love this week. Just been in to Porschacare, Matt, for:

New coolant hose at the back, had sprung a small leak so needed a new hose.
New rear tyres, MPS4S, £520 fitted at my local F1 autocentre
Roof mechanism tinkered with and lubricated as it was creaking in places and
Small air leak in a couple of places, since it was replaced when someone
slashed it about 1.5 years ago it hasn't been the same....
Much more fun, Cheapo ebay SSK fitted, had it for a year, hadn't had it fitted,
so might have to take it for a spin when it gets brought back later on!

I washed it. It was +1c and pretty dirty, so it took a while. Not much fun to be honest. At least I've brought it back to white-ish from a sort of British Racing Brown. what

New discs and pads all round for my 997.2 C4S today. Happy to get my hands dirty and only took me about 1h45 mins for all 4 corners. Little nippy outside so had to wear my thermals however!

Sebro and Textar stuff.
