    Carrera GT in the shop

    Decided to opt for an '08 C4S rather than to take delivery of the one I had ordered for March '07 delivery. While making a deposit, salesperson took me into their shop to show me a Carrera GT with the back half of it missing. Fellow who owns it ignored an engine warning light. Result, the catalytic converter overheated and burnt through the undercarriage. Much of what was left was shipped to Germany. The crate with the repair and all of the other parts to the back end were spread out on the floor for the re-install. Had to cost the insurance company megabucks since, obviously, they didn't declare it a total lost. Moto of the story is that one cannot assume that all engine warning lights can be treated lightly!

    "... lights can be treated lightly!" a pun if ever...

    Thanks for the "enlightening" us! ;-)

    I know that car, he was actually at the track, the cat heated up and scorched the undercarraige. A tech flew out to take it apart. I have pics on my cell phone of the whole story, just don't know how to post 'em.

    So you are tracking your car and it gets messed up. Now you call your insurance company to tell them you where racing the car and they say ....

    Good point. That's probably why the guy didn't let it burn up. The consensus in the F-World that is if it catches fire then just let it burn. Even if you put it out the AC and vents smell like burnt toast and you can't get rid of it.

    Roslyn Porsche. The word on the street is that PAG ain't covering it either( hope not for the owner's sake). You guys gotta see these pics, looks like an assembly line. It was hillarious watching these guys trying to read the German instructions. Anybody know how to get these pics off the cell?

    If you have the software on your computer, you can upload pics from your phone via a wire that is compatible with your phone and has a USB connection on the other end. But you do need the software to import the jpg files that your phone generates.

    I have Email on my phone so I can just Email the pics to myself as an attachment. There has to be a way. You might want to check the manual or search on the internet for your phone.

    Re: Carrera GT in the shop

    Do you have Bluetooth or infrared on your phone? If so just beam them to your PC.... (assuming your PC has these features!)
