Re: My first Porsche

I often get flashed because the oncoming traffic thinks that I am on full beam when I am not. I had this problem recently, hence adjusted my dipped-headlights to be fractionally lower - this is quite easy to do with a 6mm allen key. Perhaps yours need adjusting? To Nozydog - I do not have dimming m...

Re: Rear Light Bar

I use the handbrake if for any length of time. Exactly, Guy. The simplest solution and the easiest on the eyeballs of the driver behind! ;) It's also what I was taught to do during my iAM training. Part of the reasoning was that this also 'settles' the car to be level, after the forward weight shif...

Re: Rear Light Bar

Just pop it in "Park" and take your foot off the brake. Simples ;) Except that you then have to put your foot on the brake (activating brake lights) to return the lever to drive, and also risk dazzling (and/or frightening) the car behind with the reverse lights when moving the lever to/from park. I...

... check for stowaways on your return.
Given the current uncertainties in this country, I would check for stowaways on the way out! :lol:

Re: No signal DAB radio

Thanks for letting us know! I have bought a couple of small car USB chargers recently, and now that you mention it I do remember some of the negative Amazon reviews talking about DAB problems. Shame I didn't recall this thread at the same time! Personally I tend not to listen to DAB unless it's a st...

Re: Dash Cam

It's quite easy to route the power cable neatly to one of the 12V charging sockets, and there's plenty of detailed advice is this and the US Forum. Mine's routed down the left of the windscreen, behind the glove box, down the left hand edge of the centre console and is plugged into the rear lighter ...

Re: Macan S

Thule 591, but I might need new cross-bar-ends, or possible the cross-bars(?) I will have to check once I have the car. If you do have to replace the cross-bars, you may find it cheaper to get Porsche ones second hand - often people get rid of their cars and sell the bars separately. eg: https://ww...

Re: just had first service / 20,000 miles

Yes I understand what it is. That still doesn't tell me what indications I would get in the cockpit for a passive regen - increased engine noise, vibration, (or as I suspect, nothing!) I have never had any DPF warning lights. I think “nothing” is probably right. Which is probably half the problem w...

Re: Macan S

I already have a Thule rack for my bike, so I am glad that Macan is compatible with my kit [emoji38] How do you mean 'compatible'? Which Thule bike kit and which Thule roof bars will you use with the Macan roof rails? I only ask because my Thule roof box (quick mount system) was incompatible with t...
