    New problems! Vibration caused by fracture in discs!

    Took my car to the dealer last weekend, they started working on the car 2 days ago. they found a line in the front brake discs, they wanted to charge me for new discs! keep in mind the car has only been driven for 7000Kms. i told them i have never been in a hard brake situation and i said just look on the odometer as far as usage!. they managed to resurface the discs but supposedly today they called me and said there is still some problem with the vibration that they are trying to solve. its normal operating procedure at the dealership to say oh you got 20 inch rims so vibration is normal porsche spec!!! im getting sick of thier replies, im thinking of writing to the regional porsche representative regarding the vibration. i mean they tell you cant put anything thats not porsche spec on the car since it will void warranty on that particular part, now please explain is the 20inch sport design rims made by porsche not a porsche part?

    Re: New problems! Vibration caused by fracture in discs!

    Just got my baby back, i still have the vibration during braking and now the dealer wonderfully made my rear window washer leak everytime i go on some bumps. called the service manager and he said that the "garage foreman" will go with me on a test drive to "investigate" my issues.

    Fireo, it sounds like they are trying to shaft you, go to another more reasonable dealer that isnt out to self-destruct their market share.

    What do you mean by vibration during braking? Would you please elaborate it a little bit? Thanks. And what about that fracture you mentioned? More details (or pictures?) please. How hard did you drive the car, a lot of high speed braking, maybe during hot outside temperatures?

    Re: New problems! Vibration caused by fracture in discs!

    Well the discs are now resurfaced so the line isnt there any more. When i brake from high speeds above 150 KM/H the steering wheel would vibrate alot. also i am now getting engine vibration during stops and low gears in heavy traffic, this is new after the last service. i dont have the option to go to another dealer since there is only one dealer in kuwait! thats the problem over here you get stuck with the same dealership no matter what car you got or problem you have. my only way to complain if the dealership themselves dont rectify it is through Porsche Middle east, like PCNA in the states.

    Sounds like your discs are warped and/or are now too thin. The Cay Turbos around the Leipzig track were doing the same thing.

    Re: New problems! Vibration caused by fracture in discs!

    why dont they replace the discs under warranty?you say the car only has 7000km
