Always something :(

So I have the car dialed in for a short time when last night on a nice trip to dinner with the GF I get a CEL. I purchased an OBDII code reader and pulled the code.. Yep the othe O2 sensor is going dead. Oh well such is life. Who has the best price for the direct plug in replacement. After changing them out twice last year with the generics and getting the same code my Porsche parts guy told me that they have issues with the clips. I will only buy the direct plug in now.

If you would have just left you stock you would not have these problems!!!

Just giving you a hard time. Because we all know how OEM my car is

Good luck on fixing it, sounds like it should be easy.

Growing up the car magazines said how amazing Porsches are. Was I brainwashed? Somehow...I doubt it.

It takes me longer to jack the car up the to replace the part.. 20 min total start to finish. I have an O2 Sensor socket I purchased the really speeds it up.


As for having any OEM car...Never happen EVER!
Like the fiance told her mom "stock????? that is a bad word in our house"

01 Grand Cherokee Lifted 3", 31" AT, Infinity Kappa in all stock locations and 1 10" JBL on an Alpine V12 monoblock and K&N CAI

05 JCW MCS This car is stock for now if you wanna call the John Cooper Works stock.

And of course the Porsche. I ordered my first mod before I bought the car.

Who needs kids when you have a few cars you can throw money at?
