Re: Transfer Box Number 2

I had mine replaced recently by Hatfield OPC at exactly 2 1/2 years old and 40k, so I would concur with the US forum. Service engineer told me the replacement was a re-designed box and the problem shouldn't occur again. I must say, Hatfield were great and replaced without a quibble within 3 days (an...

Re: Mr JWW buys a Macan Turbo Performance Pack

I wonder how long he’ll keep it once he realises how small/impractical the Macan boot is. I mean I took other half to the airport the other day and couldn’t even fiit just one oerson’s luggage in the back. Were you dispatching her forever?! Plenty of room for our luggage for a three week holiday. I...

Re: Transfer Box Replacement

I've just had mine replaced at 40k when it was in for its service. two and a half years old. It had been playing up for a few weeks so I warned the OPC and they had it replaced along with service in 3 days. And I got to rag their 718 Boxster around in the meantime.

Re: Extending warranty?

I extended my warranty by 2 years after a year. As the SD is no more I've decided to keep mine for 5 years. I've just had my transfer box replaced under warranty at 40k miles and 2 years 7 months. I believe it's a 2.5k cost job. if you've not had yours replaced yet it's worth bearing in mind. OPC sa...

Re: Macan S diesel heated seats??

If I know Porsche they would charge you full replacement of both. Say 1k for the steering wheel and probably 2k for replacement front seats. Plus fitting of course. Best bet is to simply find one with those options fitted.

Re: SD residuals - What's the verdict?

As an SD owner, 2.5 years old and just coming up to its 40k service, I'm one that would probably be ordering the facelift if it was available in Diesel. As it is, I'm going to hold on to mine. There's nothing else in Diesel that I like, except for the SQ7, but it's just too much of a barge for me, p...

Re: Oil level measurement currently unavailable

Agreed. Whenever I've added oil (generally 1l every 8k) then it takes a couple of days before it will show a reading.
