Great news matey!


But will you be able to extend the warranty in two years' time? Wink


haha I should hope so. I assume it will be a clean slate in terms of DME and that should be all they need Question
Anyway i now revert back to my orginal plan of 2 years and then GT3/Turbo. Turbo if the wife has anything to do with it

Praise be at last!

Someone at Porsche has had the good sense to diffuse what could have been an extremely damaging situation.

Very pleased to see this now heading in the right direction for you. Well done to you and Porsche.

well done great news. I was never sure about the over rev thing so i took mine in after i had driven it hard to have a 111 check and rev check, all ok so i know how hard i can drive it now. Its in at the moment having a big service, brake fluid change,new battery charger,refit std exhaust, full geo set up and 111 with rev check. Not looking forward to that bill. Surprised

Good result in the end.

What you do need to do is get them to provide an over revs report now - the over revs as far as I am aware will still be in the Dme - I don't think they remove them, so get a proper printout ideally on the invoice so that you have a clean slate. That way if you sell the car or have further warranty work, it will be clear to all that the overrevs are not related to the new engine.

He did originally come on to the forum with a picture in his first post and it is a bit of a looker.

You have a built in rev-limiter by virtue of your car being PDK so no need to worry.

PS AeroAnt, well done and congrats. Are you now able to name the OPC you are dealing with? Thumb

That's an easy one, at 7000rpm in 3rd gear, select 2nd instead of 4th, known as a 'money shift'.

You will. Always been an active member on the relevant forums for the cars i've owned. Although this is the first time i've had to post up about 'real' problems. Never really had any major failure in a car before. Like to have some input when i can.

I must admit I couldn't understand Stuts viewpoint. I thought perhaps it was an alter-ego he had created to hide the shame that he had bought something water-cooled!

As with he tiptronics it would be interesting to see if any PDK's register over-revs in range 3 and above, over the coming years!

Erm... At the moment no, but i'm happy to discuss some of the finer details via pm/phone.

Very Happy

Without wanting to open up a massive can of worms and take the thread way off topic, PDK could well be the next 'IMS bearing' or 'scored bores'.

The PDK boxes are sealed units I believe, so opening one up for repair isn't currently an option, Porsche will just fit a replacement. Great when the car's worth £60k and under warranty, but when they drop to £20k in a few years what would you do when faced with a £10-15k bill for a replacement 'box? Would be similar to the situation with failed 996 / 997 engines today.

I will add for the sake of balance that I believe the PDK boxes are very, very reliable and not likely to fail, and obviously the specialists (and maybe Porsche themselves) will most likely work out how to open up the 'box and get it back together in time if required, but even so it could be a future worry...?

Question

I think the PDK box is a great thing but when they go wrong, and they do, it'll be one big bill. I'd rather tackle an engine rebuild that trying to fix one of those.
