I have some regular cheap plastic zip ties on my 914 e-brake cables and they are inches away from the exhaust. They have held up great after several years. Very surprising!

I drove my Boxster daily for several months after the wear indicator came on for the front brakes. And even then when I changed them I still could have gotten more miles out of the pads.

Haha no I did replace the AOS at 85k when it blew. Then again immediately because I thought it was a bad AOS with the oil consumption. It consumed the oil despite 2 new AOS's.

PS4S is $60 more each than the PSS!

I can't believe it! I've used nothing but PSS for 5 years and now I just found out the successor adds $60 per tire. Ugh - what a disappointment.

Accessing heater flap through dash

There's a tutorial on how to fix the AC/heater flap (from loss of foam) by going in through the dash. I've seen it before but I can't find it! Anybody know the source for it?

Should a new wheel bearing wobble?

Before the axle is inserted and the axle nut torqued? I put in a new rear wheel bearing (using a bearing press tool) and the hub wobbles a little. Is this normal or is it a bad new bearing?
