    Re: He's Back

    Great car and pics! Looks gorgeous, Carrara White is so sweet,  congrats!  Smiley


    Re: He's Back

    Nice car. White, supposedly, is the new silver, though it's a pity US cars have to have those lumps each side of the licence plate.


    Re: He's Back

    Thanks everyone.  She came back to me late Friday afternoon.  She was TWO PLUS quarts OVER-FILLED!!!!  She shows one small bar down from the top now when I check her oil level.  Perfect.  I sure hope being that gorged with oil didn't do any damage.  Wish I knew what kind of damage it could have done so I'd be on the look-out for signs.

    Good news Don - you shouldn't have any adverse indications.

    Finally got the license plate transferred to the P-car.  She now has the plate meant for her!

    Re: He's Back

     Wow that put an instant smile on my face. that is one of the best license plates i've ever seen ! looks striking and goes perfect with the car Congrats 


    Re: He's Back

    It is funny, but is there any second meaning or so to it? As a dutchman, I 'm not familiar to anything special with white squirrels...

    As Freud once said Joost, a cigar is first of all just a cigar.  So no, no second meaning or double entendres.  I have rare white (not albino) squirrels that come to my house in the woods for peanuts and black oil sunflower seed.  I'm retired so I enjoy seeing, photographing, and feeding them.  Are they bountiful in the Netherlands?  You make it sound like they are.

     i didnt mean it like that, i just thought it was a very original and smart license plate to put on a white porsche, just thought it had the perfect amount of humor and wit. Smiley


    Re: He's Back

    Cool squirrel. I see the Thoreau quote. I used to live up in central Mass. I would drive over to Walden Pond and do the walk around the pond there. Have done it many times, but preferred the historic trails between Lexington and Concord.


    Re: He's Back

    Congrats Don! Beautiful!

    LOL, thanks for your explanation Don! Smiley
    I have never seen any white squirrels. I do know that the color of the european squirrel varies with their habitat: Normally they are reddish brown in Oak forests, and in pine forests they can be almost black. Would they be white in beach forests then? (Only half and half kidding ;-) )
    On a side note, the european squirrel is becoming rarer and rarer, as imported american squirrels are flourishing here. :-(

    I love your quotes btw! As an addition to Freud's cigar: Ceci n'est pas une pipe!

    Re: He's Back

    A few months ago I got the dreaded PDK "EMERGENCY TRANSMISSION RUN" error but it was in my driveway and it went away when I shut the P-car off.  A couple of weeks I got it again backing out of my garage and the car would NOT go out of Reverse.  I shut it off and restarted it and no error message.  My car is a 2009 and one of the early builds.  I had it trucked to the dealer where they performed a software upgrade to the PDK tranny.  It's back home and I swear the tranny shifts even better that it did before so we have a happy ending!

    Re: He's Back

    Yep, the software update should have done the job nicely. Apparently it did.

    Re: He's Back

    Good the overfill did not hurt anything.  I have an 05 'S' and after an overfill the Oil seperator let go BIG TIME!

    It looks like an F1 engine letting go when that happens.  Good news is that if you shut it down fast there is no damage to the cats and replacing the oil seperator is less than a grand (seems cheap only after you see the huge smoke bomb your car becomes when it lets go!)

    Good luck - love the white.

    Spring has finally come to these mountains!  Taken today (4/5/10) next to a beautiful weeping cherry tree.
    Huh, tried twice to upload photo, didn't make it either time.
