    Yes, hopefully should be out tomorrow. Fluid around the heart had to be drained

    Both faults seem to have sorted themselves out, the oil level is reading just below max and the seat belt warning is behaving now.

    Proving to be a bit juicy though (n)

    Nothing to do with enjoying the 'loud pedal'? :D

    Hi Ian, The electronic dip stick is known to give wayward readings from time to time - i wouldn't worry about , unless it remains ON obvously, and even then , add oil slowly and check. you don't want to overfill.
    Also the car needs to be on a level surface before you check via the onboard computer.

    Sorry to hear about your Dad, Ian. Wish him a speedy recovery.

    Hope the Porky is continuing to delight?

    If it’s anything like mine it can delight on even the shortest or most mundane of journeys.

    @kleynie - I keep meaning to mention, Ian. Did you know about the Auto Hold function? When you come to a stop, depress the footbrake fully twice (like a double-click on a mouse) without removing pressure required to keep you stationary. This will engage AutoHold and illuminate a green "Hold" light within the speedo on the instrument cluster. To drive away, just gently depress the throttle and it disengages.

    I use it frequently as it's nice and easy to engage and disengage and doesn't pull you to an ubrupt halt like the AutoHold on my BMWs used to do.

    Completed my first retrofit today, I added a spare wheel to the space under the boot floor. I seem to be missing a foam insert that the jack sits in, but it’s ok for now.
    I also programmed the diamond steering wheel button to activate the sports exhaust as suggested by @K777

    Dunk, I can’t seem to make this work, is it definitely a feature on the 2017 model year?

    Yea, apparently my F11’s auto hold does that as well. I’m sure with good reason, but I’m not sure what that is... :unsure:

    Should be. In mine, albeit a diff model but for sure will be same across the range, if you are stationary you don't really have to lift off pedal and back on it, just press the brake pedal very hard into the carpet and the hold function should come on.

    Yeah I thought my F13 /640d did but wasn't 100% suppose its an indicator (wrong word lol) to approaching cars that you are definitely stationary.

    Is/was it not changed to part of the Start/stop cycle
    When you come to rest Engine will switch off, parking brake applied and brake lights remain on
    If as earlier advised you turn off the Start/stop you disable the function

    I have the stop start function but still have the auto hold whether switched on or off.

    @kleynie - try as Rich says to press harder. Almost like a double click on a mouse. Also check through the vehicle settings - I’m not sure if there is an ability to turn the function on or off.

    On my F30, auto hold works all the time, regardless of whether stop/start is enabled. The brakes remain on until the throttle is pressed, but will disengage automatically after approx 2 seconds.

    I assume the Porsche auto hold system, keeps the brakes applied without having to keep your foot on the brake pedal?

    Correct.

    Also engages automatically on any form of slope to prevent you rolling backwards.

    Yes my F11 does that as well, great feature.
    It’s a kind of auto hold I suppose but it’s different from actually setting the Auto Hold manually, isn’t it?

    Sounds the same as the “hold” function on my C63 S. Come to a stop and push the brake pedal a little harder than you already are and it activates and allows you to lift your foot off the brake. Switches off when you apply throttle to drive off, or apply pressure on the brakes again.
