Porsche has a long and storied history of excellence. Since its beginnings on Stuttgart, Germany in 1931, the Porsche brand has been associated with power and performance all over the world.
However, there is more to Porsche than powerful racing machines. With models like Panamera, Macan and Cayenne, Porsche provides a viable everyday vehicle option for the discerning driver.
Whether the Porsche you own is a vehicle used to transport your whole family in comfort and style every day; or it’s a two-seater meant for weekend escapes, choosing reliable, skilled Porsche repair specialists in Kelowna is a must.
Porsche Service Intervals
The Porsche service needs of a vehicle driven every day will naturally differ from those of a performance vehicle that is taken out for a spin only when the weather is fair. No matter how often your Porsche is driven, a major maintenance appointment should be completed every four years at a minimum. This service will include an examination of the diagnostics systems and the fault memory to ensure your vehicle is operating at peak performance.
Other services performed as part of a major Porsche maintenance appointment include changing the engine oil and oil filter, along with a careful inspection of coolant hoses, air intakes and radiators. While it may seem like this is an exercise in looking for trouble, a thorough inspection from a skilled Porsche mechanic can help to avoid serious mechanical issues by clearing debris that could otherwise cause damage to the vehicle.
The key to avoiding unnecessary repairs is finding Kelowna Porsche repair specialists who know what to look for; therefore saving you the time and money that otherwise would be lost to guesswork. Be sure to select an expert in European automobile brands to provide regular maintenance and necessary repairs.
At Motor Werke, we perform a complimentary Porsche inspection at every visit. As part of this review, we will inspect filters and advise if changing is required. Other minor services, like engine oil service, should be performed at least annually, and brake fluid change is highly recommended by Porsche every two years at a minimum.
Porsche Performance Upgrades
Though Porsche is already known for smooth, powerful performance, some drivers prefer something a little extra. Motor Werke is thrilled to help Porsche owners get more out of the experience with custom performance upgrades. Some examples of ways we can help you get the most out of your Porsche include adjustments to fuel delivery and ignition timing, software tuning and calibrations, and modifications to the suspension. These small but significant changes can make a big difference to the performance of your Porsche.
Road Course Circuit and Track Day drivers should look for a shop that focuses on driver safety first and foremost. This includes properly fitted racing seats, harnesses, and a harness bar. Track inspections are the key to verifying the overall condition of your car, including a nut and bolt torque on the chassis which will ensure safety, reliability and performance for your Porsche GT2, GT3 or GT4.
You don’t need a purpose-built track car to enjoy the driver education of a track experience. A Cayman, Boxster and base Carrera will provide plenty of fun! Look out for a future blog post on track day preparation for both driver and vehicle performance.
