The panel gaps is from a troll. They had taken a picture of a partially open door. It’s a non story.
Thank's, that's what I thought because I had never heard of such a thing.

@SHN and @Rollep, I have for a long time wanted to do Atlanterhavsveien and Trollstigen myself. Hopefully we can all get this terrible virus under control until the summer. Driving the roads through Norway is such an experience. There are the speed limits that are low, but frankly you do not want to rush through the landscape but sample and register all that beautiful scenery. My old diesel BMW did never ever given such brilliant mileage since

We have done Hurtigrutten from Kirkenes to Bergen and that was stunning. We have also driven up to Valdres National park and really want to see more of Norway now. I had planned to do this with my ICE car. I know Noray is leading with electric cars and have a good network of chargers, but have been unable to get proper information along these routes. Can you guys give your opinion and advise on possible stopovers and charging stations?

In 2015 I drove the west coast including Trollstigen with eGolf, and two years ago did a longer trip with my Tesla on the west and south west coast. I used the EV Trip planner to plan the route. However, currently I'm using A better route planner. I would recommend that you use one of these to plan the route. On the W and SW coast you will find routes that have "normal" roads and really narrow roads. I don't think you should be concern about finding charging station, but most of them are 50kWh. However, I recommend you to avoid holidays and travel off peak if can. First part of June and second part of August are safe bets.

Hi!
I'm very happy with Ruyters, they have done a very good job with my Taycan and also on another car a couple of years ago.

Had a nice little drive yesterday, it looks absolutely fantastic out in the sun:)

A Porsche salesman mentioned to me that ceramic coating voids warranty on a Porsche. He said wax or wrapping is the way to go to protect the paint. Any thoughts?

which part of the warranty? I doubt the paint itself has a warranty and ceramic won't affect anything else.

Perhaps what they mean is that if after picking up the car you go back to them and notice some paint imperfections, that they can only address those if there is no ceramic on it yet.

That sounds very strange indeed. There is a warranty on the paint of three years I think. What that exactly covers is a good question. And my Porsche dealer offers a paint protection with ceramic coating by one company as an extra service! I think you should ask to have the statement explained In detail!

A professional detailer will not put a ceramic coating on a car that has paint defects for sure. He will highlight these during the initial inspection. If he finds so severe defects in the paint that can not be rectified, he will advise you to take the car back to Porsche and will not touch it!

I wonder what that salesperson was thinking though.

Well they do cover paint with restrictions it seems @Taycan4S.

I found an article on Porsche Warranty, but you should always check in your country.
See https://www.motor1.com/reviews/392865/porsche-warranty/

The Porsche warranty will not cover paint or trim damage caused by the application of “unauthorized” paint sealants or polymers. If you’re unsure if a car-care product is good or bad for your Porsche, check with the dealer.
