  1. Disappointing to hear about the wheels, I hoped to get some cheapo steel wheels for it. I hope to fit 33" mud tyres on. I like your setup. The Advanced Off road came in PB1, 2, and 3. 1 & 2 were mostly cosmetic, but 1 had rock sliders, heavy duty bash plates, serious tow points and the sway bar disconnect. It would nice to find one but it's not going to happen. I should be able to find one with PDCC, there are two in Melbourne and one sold recently, but all are expensive for what I want. I was planning bars front and rear, something along the looks of the XROX bars. Something to mount a winch. Still like the idea of the front locker or LSD. I'd definitely be happy with the G Wagon, but the price is a bit painful. I'd be happier with the hose out interior, I'm going to feel a bit guilty jumping in soaking in salt water or covered in mud.
  2. I'm looking for a project car to turn into a reasonably serious 4x4. Hopefully well priced. Every man and his dog has a Hilux or similar, I'd like to do something different. I have narrowed down my search to the 957 Turbo or Turbo S. Until I realise it might be too hard to find, I'm only looking for one's with the PDCC or rarer still with the Advanced Off road Package PB1 with the selector as shown below. I don't believe they were bought in to Australia, but maybe ? 4 issues I want to address to make it a more serious offroader. 1. Ground clearance 2. Wheel travel 3. Tyre size 4. Front locking or mechanical clutching diff Looking on the internet I don't expect ground clearance and wheel size will be a problem. Wheel travel is clearly something that might be the biggest issue, however there is a guy in the states working on this now who I think will come up with a reasonable result. He hopes to get 10.5" front and 12" rear travel. Not too shabby. I haven't looked far into the front diff yet, but a selectable locker or a good clutching diff would be nice. I'm not sure if this will bring up errors, so it might be nicer to just have the selectable locking. I would be interested in any advice on this. The slowest part might be finding the right car, PM me if you know of one available that might suit. Thanks Dave
  3. Thanks, it would seem PB1 never came to Australia, disappointing, but as you say PDCC has sway bar disconnect when the off road program is enabled. Although I can't find where Porsche call it disconnect however in the pb1 option they do. I wonder if they might be different and maybe PDCC still has some control rather than just opening an open path for the fluid to pass. With the disconnect there is a specific icon on the control selector that lights up. If the PDCC doesn't fully release the sway bar function it would be a simple process to fit a solenoid valve between the two lines, which would achieve the same end.
  4. Does PDCC necessarily mean swaybar disconnects? If the schematic of the cars drive train on the console with the LED's shows 3 lights i.e. the system is in "off Road program, center diff locked, and rear diff locked" does that mean it has all those functions? The cars seem to have all three LED's but I don't think all cars have those functions. Do all cars up to 2010 have low range. Sorry for the dumb questions and thanks for the help.
  5. Did the series 1 Cayenne ever come optioned with PB1 in Australia, the "Advanced Off Road Technology" I have been searching with no luck, Porsche Brisbane were unsure but suspect it wasn't an option available here. They did find the option on their computer. It was std I believe on the Transsyberia and an option from 04/05 until the end of the series 1
