    Thought I would take the wife's Porsche booster for a spin, broken down on the way home and had to be recovered by the AA. Car still runs fine, levels fine but produces white smoke that smells of oil.

    Going to have a beer to prepare myself for the call on Monday to the garage.

    Sorry to hear this rather expensive sounding news :(
    Maybe you should only play with your own toys in future [-x
    Now it's a possible triple whammy:
    - you get the blame :-s
    - you have to pay for it L-) and
    - you'll never hear the end of it :-@

    I have had some posts on the Porsche forum. It's either going to cheap or not!
