Ensure your Porsche is ready for winter

Ensure your Porsche is ready for winter

26/10/2016

Winter is the most demanding season for your Porsche, so keeping your vehicle well maintained and fit for the conditions is vital. Now is the perfect time to make sure your Porsche is ready for winter.

Winter Fit, our bespoke winter service package, includes everything your Porsche requires to ensure it is looking and performing at its best during the colder months. Specific tests include essential checks of your Porsche’s underbody, battery and alternator, all of which can suffer during the colder weather.

Performed by one of our Porsche-trained Technicians, Winter Fit can identify issues that may arise between your scheduled services so you can be assured that your Porsche will deliver peak performance during the winter months. Winter Fit is available for £199 including VAT.

Winter Fit includes:

  • Vehicle Analysis Diagnostic check: a full digital report from the vehicle’s engine control unit (ECU)
  • Visual check of tyres and oils: to ensure levels are at their optimum for winter conditions
  • Check wipers and lights: checking for wiper damage and the condition of the lights
  • Visual check of brakes: analysing brake pad wear and the general condition of the brakes
  • Visual check of electrics and exhaust: to ensure all electrics are working correctly and the condition of the exhaust
  • Washer fluid top up: the draining and refill of washer fluids
  • Voltage amp test of the battery and alternator: full battery drop test including alternator output and holding charge
  • Winter valet: exterior hand wash, interior clean and vacuum

Your Porsche thrives in all conditions. However, all summer tyres begin to harden below +7ºC and cause braking distances to increase. This is why below this temperature we recommend the use of winter wheel and tyre sets from Porsche Tequipment.
