  1. Re: any Companies offering tuning through the OBD Port??

    Ah, well I guess that is your only option for an off the shelf as Softronic and FVD have absolutely nothing for the 718's so far. The only other option would be if a local shop can dyno tune your...

    What do you mean by send your computer to Cobb? You buy the Cobb tuner, plug it into your ODB and upload the tune. If you want a custom tune they will request a list of modifications and some...

    Re: 718 GT4 Order

    Very nice and good luck with your future purchase. Like the BoxsterGT guy I'll be very surprised if you get the car by September.
    While it's not a limited car, the pricing is very much in line with...

  5. Macan Re: Tire Patching - recommend a repair shop?

    Can afford a Porsche Macan but can't spend $250 on a tire? At least buy a $100 used tire, I've done this a few times for our Cayenne and they work perfect. If your husband doesn't understand the...

    Re: Suncoast 981 Brake upgrade

    Why not just have your calipers painted if that's all you are after? You could even DIY for under $100.

    Re: 2018 Leftover Inventory is huge.

    Sounds similar to the current heavy discount Chevy is offering on the outgoing C7...both are damn nice bargains...20% off list means you have very little depreciation to absorb for a bit.

    Re: 2018 Leftover Inventory is huge.

    My 3 local Porsche dealers only have 5 718's in stock combined. You might get lucky and get 12% off at some dealer, but don't think they will be having some big inventory clearance because there...
  10. Re: 2015 GTS issues and pricing-prospective owner

  11. Re: Have you noticed the 981 Cayman appreciating over the last year?

    I think prices are high for low mileage Boxster and Cayman's, 981's in particular. Prices were definitely depressed last fall and winter, now we have the spring price increases up to 15% more than...

    Those look like some nice power gains for really cheap. That's definitely one big advantage of the 718 over the 981, turbo engine's are much easier to get more power from. The 718 S gets bigger...

    Re: Buying a Macan...please help.

    Porsche makes a poor transfer case, affects the Cayenne too. Our Cayenne Turbo needed a new transfer case at 50K, the warranty had already run out but Porsche coveted half of the $4300 cost.

  22. Re: Manual with Sports Chrono for dual duty, must have?

  27. Re: 718 2nd best Luxury Vehicle with Lowest Depreciation

    They are definitely wrong about the Cayenne, 55% is closer to the amount you lose after 5 years, not the amount it's still worth. The Macan has proven a winner so far though, but it's only been...
