    "Why Paint Protection Film (PPF) Sucks - Watch this before you buy" - video

    Recommended Security Wheel Bolts?

    The factory-provided "security" splined wheel bolt is no real security at all. One can buy a splined socket for $40 on eBay With a socket and battery-powered impact wrench, it's seconds to remove weel bolts. It was no deterrent to the would-be thief who first snagged the splined bolt on my...

    Locking Wheel Nut Key

    Don't buy Porsche "security" wheel bolts. The Taycan's splined "security" wheel bolt is not a deterrent to thieves. One can buy a splined socket for $40 on eBay It was the first bolt removed by would-be thieves on my own three-month-old MY2021:

    HUD Customized View not saving or reverting

    Hi Forum, My 2021 Turbo S does not retain a customized HUD setting. The customization process is quite straightforward using the PCM and the customized HUD displays fine ... for a while. Within a drive or two; however, the HUD reverts from a customized two-pane layout (e.g., with compass...

    Insane market in Northern Cali

    I spoke with Redwood City Porshe yesterday (near San Francisco) — They received only two Turbo S allocations in 2021, and have received only one MY2022 Turbo S allocation (allocated in Q4 '21)

    Night Vision Assist Saved Me Last Night

    Agree with you on this point. It's great that people and animals are picked up, but hard to know it's happened with eyes on the road. My reaction was the same as yours and I looked for a way to bring it up on the HUD.

    Rear Axle Steering for daily driver?

    One of the best features of the car. Love it - best at low speed turning in the hood, three-pointers, and u-turns. All cars should be so lucky.

    Wheel & Tire Protection Plan

    I did not. I'm banking on all the fragile stuff breaking in the first four years of factory warranty. I did buy the Posche Scheduled Maintenance Plan for $1,830. Covers scheduled maintenance for four years/40,000 mi.

    Wheel & Tire Protection Plan

    I only purchased Tire and Wheel. Regular insurance will cover the windshield (with deductible), I've never lost a key so see as a low probability, and dents are also pretty rare. Tires and wheels, on the other hand, have been a plague for my two BMWs and two Chevy's over the years. I expect...
