  1. Re: Cayman S 06 smoke after oil overfilled and AOS change

    It depends how long you drive it before it will clear out. Short drives will take longer, a nice long Sat afternoon drive will make it go away quicker. You need to get it hot for a sustained period...
  2. Re: Oil consumption/oil on spark plug 06 S

    Second, trading for $40K seems like an OK deal. I don't look at GTS mileage...
