    This question starts on Tuesday. My gas light came on. I was lazy and planned to put gas the next morning. Overnight it was COLD like -30s. The next day when I started the car it was misfiring. I went to the gas station got some gas in a gas can. After I put it in the car I started up and after about 5 minutes the misfire was gone.
    I filled the tank and took a blast up the highway. I figured maybe condensation in the tank from the freezing temps and low gas in the tank. I havenít driven the car since Tuesday. I start it up today and I have this light on

    I checked the DTCs and itís only registering a P0301(Cylinder 1 misfire). I checked the oil and I added like a quarter of a bottle.

    Pull the plug on cylinder 1. See what it looks like. Move the ignition coil to another cylinder and see if the misfire follows.

    I don't have a misfire at least not one I can feel. I think the misfire code was before I put the gas. The car runs fine but I have the oil sensor light?

    Maybe it's just me but the first thing I would check would be the oil sensor.

    Does anyone know if the wiring from the EVAP leak detection pump comes into the vehicle at an obvious spot in the trunk, changed mine out today as I had been getting a P2404 code. When I dropped the fender liner this fell out:



    Not had a chance to drive the car yet, but hopeful that the CEL is gone. I could not see any entry points into the vehicle from the LDP side of things, other than where the wiring goes, but I also know mice can get through a tiny hole. Want to make sure they have not messed with anything inside that area in the trunk.

    While down there as well I noticed the bump stops are destroyed on the ST coils. While I know bump stops can be replaced, what should the ST bump stops be replaced with?

    from what Iím seeing online orange means it might be the sensor. Red means itís the oil pressure and is critical. My dad could check and replace the sensor but not until the weather is better. I saw someone else said orange might mean the oil screen might need to be cleaned or something. Iím just trying to figure out if I can wait until Spring or get it looked at now?

    Normal maintenance. Checking and refilling fluids, add air into tires, and scanning for any codes.

    If you donít want to hear your brakes rattle over every little bump then theyíre important. Just push them on hard and they pop into place.

    Well I wasn't romping on it (although I have done that in snow a number of times), and it holds up fine. No issues and plenty of grip with blizzaks

    Not that there is anything wrong with the 911, though
    tks guys for the replies.

    in deed the R8 is a nice car, but the 911 is way more accessible in awd and manual transmission.

    we already saw few, tried a lambo, r8 and soon the 911.

    unfortunatly its not for me, but for my dad. he's not so good with internet, so I do some searching for him for the more logical choice.

    R8 v8 got one or the best engine from audi. But under 100k, spyder, manual ; its pretty rare.
    On the other side, a 911 , manual , cabrio, awd, under 100k, there's a ton...

    Having driven both a 6MT 911 (997 Carrera S, and therefore RWD), and a 4.2 6MT R8, I can say I would take the R8 any day. Both were great cars, but the R8 just felt way more special. Plus that gated shifter. .

    I don't know about sypders but 4.2 R8 coupes regularly go for $70k-$80k, depending on the year.

    Exchange rates are not how you work this out. The proper metric is puchasing power parity (PPP) and even this has issues with imported goods (e.g. cars) - transport and taxation increases overall cost over and above PPP.

    Currently (2016 figures) the USD to AUD PPP is 1.486.

    So overall for an Australian living in Australia to have the same 'lifestyle' as a person earning $80K in USA, the Australian needs to earn $120K.

    That is because things are more expensive here, currently at about a rate twice that nominal USA rates.

    Using the R8 example, $300,000 AUD car should cost just over $200,000 in USD in USA. What you guys are saying is, essentially it is more than half that, which supports the PPP calcs above.

    I remember when I lived in USA, the cars that people had were amazing and then you think "they must be rich"... until you see what they cost lol.

    Even today the average B7 is twice the nominal amount here. :(

    Questions you thought were too dumb to ask

    Loud humming means bad bearing ?
    What else I can do, jack the car and spin the wheel and place hand on the suspension spring ?
    I have grinding noise when turning.

    Likely a bearing. You can jack the car up and push and pull and on the wheel. There should be relatively no play. Look up a video on it real quick and itíll show you an example of what I mean. Also, you should hear the noise most when you load up that wheel when turning. Meaning if your turning right youíre left wheel is loaded with the weight and you would hear it then and vice versa.

    Is this a failing alternator pulley? My car started squealing (sounds like a belt squeal to me) as I released the accelerator about 25 minutes into my 30 min drive home. Sounded like an embarrassing old junker when pulling up to stop signs and would get worse as I idled and would go away as soon as gas was applied. I checked out the serpentine with engine running but was difficult to pin point the sound. The TB, water pump and serp belt were replaced a month ago.

    Questions you thought were too dumb to ask

    OK so since I posted the warning I got Iíve been staying at the inlaws. The car hasnít been driven since that day. This morning I go out and following instructions on Pelican Parts I pull fuse 5 which is supposed to be for the sensor. The fuse looked fine and when I started up after the warning was still there. I shut it off but 3-4 hours later when I started it up to clean the car off the warning is gone. I havenít scanned it yet for codes. I checked the oil again and it is at Max. Iíve got it on the charger and Iíll see if the warning comes back.


    Now when I started it up and cleaned it off my shifter was completely frozen in place. Anyone had that happen before? The car had to run for about 30 minutes then I could move it normally. When I say frozen I mean completely rock solid.

    Anyone know anything about 034 adjustable control arms? My car came with a set installed and I rebuilt them over the summer (new joints and bushings) and I had my car in the shop recently and the guy tells me that one of the arms is bad and isnít staying seated in the spindle where the punch bolt is supposed to hold them in place.

    Is this likely due to installation error? Either the pinch bolt not being tight enough or somehow the heim joint wasnít installed fully correctly into the arm itself? I find it unlikely that it has gone bad after only a little more than 3months (plus the reason I had the car in the shop is that I have a suspension clunk that has been there since around the same time I did the arms and havenít been able to resolve it; this mechanic is indicating this is the source, leading me to believe the arm would have had to have been bad the whole time itís been in the car).

    Iím just really confused by this whole thing and im considering just ditching those arms altogether and putting in stock replacements, but the labor involved in doing so is a little more than I want to dish out right now.

    How come people claim that beige leather seats will have a lower resale value?

    Is this based on a fact or just conjecture?

    Probably just based on demand. As an owner of Tan/Beige interior swapping to Black. I donít think there are many looking to swap the other way.

    Supply and demand. Most people want black interior. Beige seats therefore are going to be a harder sale, thus command a lower price.

    Based on years of us trading, buying and selling parts. Light seats get less because they are less desirable to a lot of people. Something is only worth what someone is willing to pay.

    Questions you thought were too dumb to ask

    235/40 18 tyres on 8.5 18ís ET45 wheels, will it stretch or sit Nicely ?

    And what if I went 245/40 ? Will it rub ? I have standard suspension but planning to install vogtland with 35mm / 1.34 inch drop all around

    On the stretchy side.

    Most likely not, but do 245/35 instead which is closer to the original rolling circumference.

    Say what? 235/40/18 is the OEM size and not at all stretched on an 8.5" wide wheel.

    The power in my front passenger Recaro stopped working, except for the heated seat. My son was moving it forward when it just stopped. I looked underneath it as best I could and everything looked plugged in??? It seems wierd to me that the seat heater still works, but none of the power functions....any ideas???
