Engine Oil Maintenance

Engine Oil Maintenance

So, here’s how it goes: Technicians say to change your engine oil annually regardless of mileage. Clients worry if it’s unnecessary after reading articles or blog posts. Normally, there’s no proof of what happens if you don’t do it annually, WE HAVE PROOF! We look at your oil analysis numbers from SPEEDiagnostix.

Changing Key Fob Battery on Newer Model Porsches

Is your key fob giving you trouble? Does your dash read “Key Battery Flat”? It could be possible that your key fob battery needs to be changed. Changing your key fob battery is simple and can be done in a matter of minutes! Follow these steps to change your key fob battery (2010 or newer Panamera, 2011 or newer Macan/Cayenne/Cayman, 2013 or newer Boxster/911): First, remove the emergency key by turning key to backside, and pushing the release button on the bottom of the key and pulling, separating the key from the plastic casing.
