    Porsche meets are the worst its just a bunch of 60+ year old guys who think "Paint to Sample" is rare and original. 
    It's a factory color! You just checked a box! 🙄
    I honestly don't think 90% of them could change their own oil. 

    Yea, can’t wait to hurt some feelings in the 911 community 😈

  2. Same, I maybe used them twice in 2018 and then GEICO gave me free roadside assistance and a discount when I started getting quotes from other companies in December.  AAA is a national service but work as local/regional chapters so it could just be your regional office that hates you, maybe try calling the corporate end 🤷🏼‍♂️

  3. Headlight bulbs on the cayenne.  Went with Philips xtreme, they’re definitely better than the orsams that were in there but I’ve gotten too used to the Audis bi-xenons.

     I’ve looked into installing the OEM bi-xenons but have been assured the auto leveling won’t work and I will have bulb error light without wiring in a new harness all the way back to the canbus.

    I’d never put HIDs in a regular halogen lamp but the cayenne has halogen projectors so I may experiment with some 4300k HIDs and see if I can get a crisp cutoff and eliminate stray light.

    any thoughts???

    Porsche does that ALOT with their vehicles in relation to maintenance and repairs.  

    Is this your first one?   Buy the specialty tools now if so, you can find them on eBay for way less than Amazon, at least when I worked at LKQ Potomac that's where I bought all mine. 

    I got the drain pan with a box wrench and swapped it for en ECS magnetic drain plug with a smaller head so that shouldn’t be an issue and I have a 36mm socket that works for the filter.

    but by the time you get enough extensions on the filter socket to clear the steering rack the ratchet is hitting the wheel/suspension components so the car needs to be in the air so you can add another extension to get the ratchet below wheel or remove the wheel. Definitely have to come up with some kind of funnel from the pan next time to avoid that mess.
