Too expensive for me, especially with no pictures, mileage, or maintenance history, even though apparently only slightly used.

On this side of the Pond it is usually reported that "Porsche" is the worst place to take your 928 for just about anything.

But that being said, you have paid them money for a service, make them make it right!

yahh im hating porsche at the moment. my only problem is i don't have anyone else close to me who can work on my car. unless.... does anyone live near Purley surrey UK???? that can help out with my worries.


nahh didn't think so.

pls anyone have any links to new 928 rated tires. i did find this link and was thinking of the continental. my tyres are all 7mm so i'm not gonna change them but was just preping in case i have a bad tire.

Same one as you Jerry. He paid money to have it fixed. It wasn't fixed.

porsche should give you a printout of the results of the alignment - it will show before and after measurements of all the pertinent adjustments - with that you can tell at a glance if everything is within porsche tolerances - some alignment shops won't give it to you unless you ask for it - i ask for it when i drop the car off so they know i want it - then they can't later say they didn't know i wanted it and the machine's memory has been cleared

hi
a quick question. as you know i have....sorry porsche have removed my tyre pressure sensors in my rims. as they told me they where shot and not working.
now from day one of me owning this car on the dash the tyre pressure red light (top right) has always been on. now i was about to jumper 2-13 on its control module this weekend and was wondering will jumpering it turn the light off on the dash??

if it does not turn off then i may as well leave it alone
