    Tyre pressure monitoring

    So, have Porsche got Tyre Pressure Monitoring working OK now then, or is it just a vicious rumour?

    It is available for the 997, so it should be available for the Boxster too, soon. Starting with MY 2006...very likely.

    Re: Tyre pressure monitoring

    Thanks for the info RC.... Dare I suggest it'll be retro-fittable?

    Good question, nobody can really provide an accurate answer on this one. I want to retrofit it on my 997 Carrera S, as soon as I get a more accurate info, I'll post it.
    Theoretically, it shouldn't be a problem. Theoretically...

    I decided to go against it after strong recommandations not to from my friend from Ferrari.
    He told me that on Ferraris, it's always off by 0.1 to 0.3 bar! Plus or minus adn that client are disappointed.
    Since it can be checked at all petrol stations in France, I thought fine.
    Mind you, it works good on our S and SL Mercs.

    Big mistake, you should get it, Francois. It works very good on my Cayenne Turbo, sometimes it turns itself off for a few minutes but it comes on again.
    It is very accurate and especially on a sports car it makes sense. I saw two cars with blown tires lately, a SL 500 and a Mercedes E-class (older model). Both drivers seem to have been lucky, they just slipped, no rollover, kissing a tree, etc.

    RC,
    Do you get a warning message if the tyre pressure goes below the min. recommanded value?
