Question Squeak Squeak.

Hey guys,

I doubt that anything is wrong (Other than my driving practices ) but sometimes usually when my boxster hasn't warmed up, If I do a full lock (steering) U-turn at REALLY low revs I hear a pretty loud squeak. It doesn't happen during a U-turn at normal revs w/ full lock or at low revs w/o full lock. I assume the problem is with my letting the revs get to low...
Anyone think anything to the contrary?

Your serpantine (Spelling?) belt is probably dry as a bone, slipping. Easy to replace and cheap fix.
When I set my timing, why do I flush, then pee?

Yeah I am just passed the 47,000km mark, meaning i need to do the 45,000km maintenance which includes changing my spark plugs and belt. Although I am sure porsche didn't intend it to take 10 years to put on 45,000km! (Previous owner probably just drove it around his block once a week! :P

Also I am experiencing a loudish vibration (from behind me - left side) sometimes in the low rev area during quick acceleration.. I've read that this can be caused by the belt too. Just wondering if you guys think it could be related considering I am experiencing the squeak as well?
