    Brake Caliper Maintenance

    Odd lesson in physics. Weight has to shift, just with less force because of gentle braking due to lower speed. Rears do not "do all the work". Electronic brake force equalization applies rears first so car does not dive under braking, IIRC.

    German Car Techs Using Augmented Reality in the Service Bay

    Funny- you never looked to see how many radiators in your car? But know how many and what type the belly pan fasteners are? LOL

    German Car Techs Using Augmented Reality in the Service Bay

    Must have. Does your correct German car have 3 radiators, and an extra one to cool the oil, too?

    German Car Techs Using Augmented Reality in the Service Bay

    Perfectly said. Needless complexity. On my German car, they use 5 different fasteners to hold up a belly pan. Why??

    Glazed Pads

    Home charging 110 vs 240 - Efficiency?

    PECO in Pennsylvania is very expensive, too. Customers are paying off loses sustained by PECO's failed nuclear power plant, not the shareholders/owners. Nice to have your loses paid for by somebody else.

    Home charging 110 vs 240 - Efficiency?

    Funny you mention being at end of long street. We were at beginning of long street and were blowing out bulbs and a tv or two. I measured 130-135vac.

    KYB or OEM Toyota shocks?

    They are about 10% stiffer to compensate for suspension wear, according to their tech line. Made on same assembly line, too. Regarding Monroe, I've used them too and no problems, but they are softer than the Toyota OE. In my experience appear to rust quickly, if that is important to you.

    Worse repair ever?

    Everything on a Porsche is as well. Even a simple PCV (AOS) valve rivals an Apollo moon rocket for complexity. That's the German way...

    How to Get the Most Fuel Economy

    Thanks for the link. Interesting read. Much better than "what is the best oil" or "I'm tearing my hair out: 5-30 or 10-30" LOL
