The weather outside is getting warmer, the days are getting longer, and spring is in the air. This is an exciting time of year, especially for Porsche owners who, although many use their vehicle year-round, likely look forward to clear, dry roads. With spring officially here, it’s time to make sure our Porsche is ready for both spring and summer.
Many of the tips here are common sense, and you can do everything in one stop at our service department. The idea is to not only ensure your Porsche is in perfect condition for the upcoming season, but also to get rid of any trace winter may leave on your vehicle. Because as we all know, Calgary winters aren’t easy, and they do leave a mark on your car or SUV. So, without further ado, here are some tips to get your Porsche in perfect condition for spring.
There isn’t a more important or critical component to your Porsche than its tires. Your tires are the only point of contact between your vehicle and the road, and therefore play a critical role in how it handles, brakes, accelerates, and behaves overall. If this is your third or fourth summer with your current set of tires, it’s time to check if they need to be replaced. Some tires sets may need to be changed sooner if you used your Porsche on a track in the past.
In any case, the first thing to check when spring comes around is whether or not your current summer tires are still in good condition.
From there, it’s time to either perform scheduled maintenance if the time has come, or at the very least have your vehicle inspected. The inspection (or maintenance) will make sure fuel levels are optimal, the suspension and alignment haven’t been impacted by winter, and that overall, the vehicle is ready for the months ahead.
Last but certainly not least, having your Porsche detailed in spring is perhaps the best tip we can give. A thorough wash is critical as it will get rid of any trace of winter, inside and out. Specifically, a spring detailing package will remove salt and dirt that can lodge under the vehicle and on your carpets, thus preserving your vehicle’s look and condition, ensuring that it keeps its value in the process.
