Next Porsche: 2022 992 GT3
Fair comment and I understand where you are coming from. You are correct, money is not the problem. Psychologically, I just can't pay a dealer $500 to swap out a battery when I can do it myself in 30 minutes. I started out with $20 bucks in my pocket so I really value a buck. I still pick up pennies off the ground when I see them to my wife's embarrassment. A Penny earned is a Penny saved kinda thing. I paid cash for my two Porsches and retired last year at age 51. Doing things like swapping out my own battery got me there. So for me, the angst is definitely worth it in the long run.You have a brand new Carrera (with European delivery) and very new Boxster (also with European delivery), forgive me but money doesn't seem to be the problem, FWIW I would not hesitate to have the dealer replace the battery with the correct OEM model and configure it with the PIWIS...
Oh, I just noticed under your name: "Next Porsche: 2022 Macan"...
Are all of the variables and angst worth it for a couple of hundred dollars?
