    Emergency equipment in your vehicle?

    Besides the factory equipment like lug wrench, jack, and spare, what else do you carry? I have a tow strap, folding entrenchment shovel and a hatchet. A roll of gorilla tape is usually in the spare well too. Should add a selection of zip ties. Always carry jumper cables. Thinking of...

    PQIA testing, volume?

    Does the pqia test the actual volume of oil in a container as part of their tesing proceedures? I'd think that state's weights and measures dept would keep most companies honest though. With some oils not meeting standards as labeled, you never know. Just curious.

    Blaupunkt car audio opinions?

    Have been looking at upgrading the head unit and components in the 986. Something feels right about going with blaupunkt, even though they are all made in RoC now. I replaced the dash speakers with the 4" blue magic blaupunkt speakers last spring. I have the stock Porsche head unit now...

    Short run Rehab, how long?

    Maintenance Log?

    I'm sure this has come up before, but searching this forum didn't yield any results. Does any one have a source for a downloadable maintenance log book? Trying to keep better records than in the past and figured there is no need to re-invent the wheel, right? I'd prefer a paper form based log...
