ScottishSpyderTry switching off the start/stop button as it is running on 3 cylinders.
orly…. My only slight gripe is that with the roof up at 70mph in 7th gear (about 2100 rpm) there is a noticeable drone. The exhaust button seems to make no difference at all at those revs. Has anyone else noticed that? ….
orlyThanks for your positive comments guys! Well 150 miles clocked up now, and still like a 5 year old at Christmas. Love the engine. Mine came with Pirellis, which wasn't my preference (I believe some come with Michelins just depending on stock) but there seems to be plenty of grip. Once I can start pushing the revs I might be keener to swap to Michelins. Anyone want to buy 4x Pirellis with 150 miles on them? :-D Of the miles I have done, I drove 15 miles on a dual carriageway today. My only slight gripe is that with the roof up at 70mph in 7th gear (about 2100 rpm) there is a noticeable drone. The exhaust button seems to make no difference at all at those revs. Has anyone else noticed that? It's not too bad, but might be annoying on a long journey. Fortunately I don't plan to be driving the car on dual carriageways much...
JurassicGTS Unless you drive it like you stole it, you probably won't notice much difference between Pirellis and Michelins, just mind the kerbs as the Pirellis don't have as much rim protection.I am sure I read that the exhaust drone diminishes when you get a bit of soot build up and the sound improves, but can't find the link☹Going to be great to hear how you compare the 4.0 to your old 3.4👍
Keith WilsonHi, new car being delivered this May? Wondering about paint protection etc? Current 981 GTS has bad gravel rash on the trailing edge of rear arches and a couple of stone chips on the bonnet. Have PPF on the front of the rear wings and Zunsport grilles in the front air scoops. What are owners doing with the new car? Any advice would be appreciated? Thanks Keith
JurassicGTS Unless you drive it like you stole it,.........
WollemiJurassicGTS Unless you drive it like you stole it,......... Most stolen Porsches are driven away very slowly and quietly so as not to attract attention, straight into a shipping container. Is that what you meant?
Keith WilsonNice one Orly. Be interested to see your spec?
