Factory Shop Manual Availability

Vehicle Information: Model : 997 Carrera Coupe; Year: 2007; Mileage: 7500;

You have mentioned that there are no factory service manuals available for later model cars like my 2007 Carrera, and God knows, I have hunted for one myself with no success. Recently, I ran across a CD-ROM copy of a service manual on the Vertex web site. They say it is Part WKD484721 and swear it is the real thing. Cost is $150. Any comments? Have you possibly seen it? BTW, the site URL is

Vehicle Information: Model : 997 c2; Year: 2006; Mileage: 11500;

I have a 07 997 C2 with approx 11,500 miles and the warning light just switched on. This light is the Emission Control Warning Light (Check Engine #17 in the owners manual). I am not sure if it matters but the car has not been driven in the past two months but it has been started a few times to keep things lubricated.Any particular reason for the light turning on?

warrantee and oil changes

Vehicle Information: Model : 996/997; Year: 2005; Mileage: xxxx;

Peter, Several guy and I were talking and the question came up. If you take your car 2003 to 2007 to some other place beside the dealership to have the oil change does that void the Porsche Warrantee.I said it shouldn't if you use the correct oil/Porsche filters/o-rings etc. And you keep records/receipts with dates and Who did the service.Do you know for sure...

Please advise on my desire to have a magnetized hidden key device attached under my car. Would you have any suggestions on whether this is a good idea and if so, recommend a magnetic device. Thanks so much for your advice.

Hi-I am in about to purchase a 2006 911 Cab with 16,000 miles on it form a BMW dealer. What do you recommend is the best warranty to get? BMW is offering platinum converge through WG Western General. For $5500.00 it will cover "everything" to 100,000 miles. Have you heard of this insurance company WG?Is it best to go to a Porsche dealer for a extended warranty?Thanks for the input!

wind wander

Vehicle Information: Model : 997; Year: 2007; Mileage: 11000kms;

I did a euro delivery of my 997 in april '07 and found that high winds and high speeds are not fun. I assumed that the speeds I was driving at had more to do with the rocking and figured that at "normal" speeds it would go away. It didn't. I thought that a car with this kind of size and handling would be solid in all but hurricane force winds. Am I just expecting more than is reasonable? The car feels great at the DE events.Cheers

Are service requirements such as oil changes, brake flush, etc. required to be performed at the dealership or can they be done by an independent shop or by the owner while maintaining all receipts? What is required at the two year point for a car with 9600 miles? I do not want to put the warranty in jeopardy. Thank you.
