    OEM rim weights... Again.

    I know, I know. Searching about rim weights brings up at least 4 threads on this forum but... Every single one unanswered. Maybe my searching skills are fading too. And if this has been reported already, I apologise in advance. Basically I'd like to know how much an OEM wheel generally...

    Sport Sound Owners - Do You Use It Most of the Time?

    I'm thinking in customising the individual mode to my most regular driving conditions and adding the sound in that mode. With our roads here, sport plus will be a rare occasion and since someone forgot the "next" button, I'll probably assign it to the steering wheel button

    Ways we enjoy our Taycan Cross Turismo: Kid seats in the back, and off-roading

    Yeah no worries. I only remember because my youngest kid would measure his height weekly to be tall enough to get rid of the booster and later on to go in the front and stick shift for his dad 🤣

    Ways we enjoy our Taycan Cross Turismo: Kid seats in the back, and off-roading

    I'd suggest to check local regulations. Police doesn't always follow logic and will act according the book. If law says the kid has to have a booster or rised seat until age 12 or 110cm height in the back (just an example) then he has to have one no matter where the belt sits. Personal...

    Order to delivery, how long it takes?

    Strange indeed. Test drive, placed deposit and signed contract on December 22nd. Got allocation january 7th. Allocation locked January 28th. Next step should be V250 beginning March. Expected delivery early April. Edit: maybe they only do right hand cars once in a while?

    Don Breaks His Taycan - The Saga of the 12v Battery

    Thank you. Unfortunately, the C-tek (and all Chinese BM2 up to the latest BM6) will clear its eeprom on total power failure in less than 30 seconds. This basically means that once the 12v goes offline, you lose all evidence of what led to the offline status. It seems mind boggling to me why...

    spec now locked in :)

    Oh thank god. Imagine a Taycan without it. Blasfemy 😂 @G5day you getting yours early April? Might come in the same truck as mine. Supposedly mine will be sent to a compound in Madrid before being sent to Portugal.

    Flat tire and not happy ending

    2012 Going from Lisbon to the Algarve on a Sunday. Kid just got out of the hospital after a surgery. 43C high summer. Suddently rear right tire bursts on the highway. I pull to the side, check the tire. Cut wide open. My sealant and compressor look ridiculous in my hands. Call insurance which...

    Switched to Winter Wheels and Reset TPMS

    I saw a YouTube video a few months ago. A range review on the taycan (can't remember if sedan or ct) and the guy had the rear filled up with a set of wheels (rims and tires) because of some track day. He was pushed to the front in his seat but they did fit.

    Taycan Owners and Very Narrow Lanes

    Thanks for clearing up two points a) it's tight but possible space. Good drivemanship (or parkingship) b) the camera is worse than I expected. I only tested it once during the test drive and it didn't appear that bad. I mean obviously its job is to help parking, not taking national...

    No air coming out of the drivers side air vent?

    I was being mildly sarcastic purposefully driving away attention of the main intervention. On a serious note, it kinda brings into perspective the tremendous amount of work it requires to "fix" a factory glitch. I hope your car will be perfect from now on

    No air coming out of the drivers side air vent?

    OH MY GOD They managed to remove the passenger's side A pillar cover! That's a world's first (among the dashcam community). Please ask how they managed. About the rest... I'm glad you finally got it sorted but the work to get to it... it looks like a bomb went off in the inside. I hope no...

    Taycan Owners and Very Narrow Lanes

    That seem reasonable to be honest. I mean, it won't protect one of a large door swing hitting you but looking at my current car doors, I see scuffs and chips. Only one ding in the rear left door and I know who did it (my kid when he was while opening the door and hitting a cement pole :mad:😂)

    Taycan Owners and Very Narrow Lanes

    I wonder how much a PPF for the side doors could cost. Looking at my current car, I mostly only have scratches on the doors. The back is always pristine (because random people hit me from behind once a year which means the back was painted like 6 times already - no Joke). The front also seems...
