    Dension Gateway 500

    Gateway 500, so this does NOT have bluetooth compatibility.

    Includes USB adapter and older style ipod/iphone connector.

  3. Re: MyNameIdeasWereTaken 987.1 S Progression Thread

    I'm feeling very honored that my car received another Killboy weekly highlight as well.

    This picture also shows why I can't go any more aggressive with the offset or run a larger front splitter....

    Brought the car back out for the RennSport dragon event, got another weekly highlight with my dad's 997 in the background.

  6. Re: White panel behind the Engine grill on 2008 Cayman S

    Are you referring the vinyl that is often installed as a rock chip guard?
    Clear vinyl, like a clear bra, will yellow with time.

    Assuming the paint underneath had proper cure time before it was...

  10. Re: Motor oil change with liqui moly 5w40 molygen

    I change my oil every 3k-5k miles depending on what type of driving the car has seen. I always inspect the oil and filter, but both come back clean, so I've never bothered with any form of engine...

  12. Re: Tow Hook or Tow Eye for 08 Cayman S

    Certain model years have reverse threads, so be mindful of that when shopping. But on my 08, it's standard threading, though a very odd size that I have only seen used on Porsche and a few VWs.
  13. Re: Motor oil change with liqui moly 5w40 molygen

    I'm not sure what you mean by green color, but I've been using LiquiMoly in all of my cars for years. It has been one of the best off-the-shelf oils I have used for my track cars that I drive to and...

    The first few plywood splitter prototypes results in more scraping than I anticipated. While no lower than the lowest points of the car, it does protrude rather far from the front wheels. So I'm...

    Swapped out the shift knob for a perfectly round shift ball. So far, I'm liking the general feel of it more than stock, as all my past builds have had similar shift knobs.

  20. Re: Can Cayman and Boxster Mirrors be manual rotated to reduce the car width?

    On my 08, the mirrors can be rotated about 45 forward and backward (in case it gets bumped in a parking lot), but they seem to be spring loaded and snap right back to the neutral position. I read...

  22. Re: MyNameIdeasWereTaken 987.1 S Progression Thread

    Finished up color matching the interior trim under the dash and center console. Did the add-a-fuse trick so the 12v sockets are off when the car is off, so the GPS is simply plugged into that.

    Sticky: Re: What did you do to your 987 today?

    If you wanted to keep them black, I would have used appliance epoxy, which gives a rugged glossy finish. $5 for 2 cans is enough to sufficiently paint all 4 wheels. While not as rugged as powder...
  24. Re: HELP Strange Engine Tapping / Knocking cold ( +video)

    The noise probably goes away because all of the parts are getting lubricated and the oil is getting up to temperature. You don't want to high rev a car from a cold start, but you also don't want to...
  25. Re: What other seats bolt in to the 987's?

    For what it's worth, our cars do not have the typical air bladder that sit under the passenger seat cushion. It has 4 weight sensors that sit between the seat and the rails on each corner. While you...
  26. Re: Buying first Porsche (2006 Cayman S, 35k miles) Advice?

    For what it's worth, I paid $30k for my 2008 987S last year with 34k miles on the clock. I'm the third owner and the second owner only put about 3k miles on it in 2 years.

    I did not have a PPI...
  27. Re: Buying first Porsche (2006 Cayman S, 35k miles) Advice?

    That is true! We're talking about a 14 year old car. So whether it's low mileage or high mileage, it's time to start replacing things that have not yet been replaced.

    If you've driven it and have...
  28. Re: Buying first Porsche (2006 Cayman S, 35k miles) Advice?

    If you get them down to $23k, that sounds like a pretty good deal. Obviously someone had fun accelerating in this thing. Maybe some tight autocross circuits, but I doubt there are any harsh track...
  29. Re: What other seats bolt in to the 987's?

    Most aftermarket seats are a universal fitment with brackets, and there are brackets that can be purchased for these cars (or make your own).

    But keep in mind that you'll be losing the bolster...
  30. Re: Buying first Porsche (2006 Cayman S, 35k miles) Advice?

    Also worth checking the age of the tires. As I'd doubt this 3rd owner ever replaced them. So they could be at least 4 years old.
  31. Re: Buying first Porsche (2006 Cayman S, 35k miles) Advice?

  32. Re: MyNameIdeasWereTaken 987.1 S Progression Thread

    I've seen a lot of track builds take out the console entirely, but I haven't seen any 987s with a console delete as clean as the 986. There's a lot of pieces that integrate into the dash, so you'd...

    Great reminder that all cars should carry fire extinguishers.

  36. Re: Questions / Opinions on 2007 Cayman S

    Ask the dealer to find out what suspension is on it. Name brand springs will all be recognizable and/or be branded. Many springs work very well with the stock struts, though any lowering springs...
  37. Re: Questions / Opinions on 2007 Cayman S

    If it has been driven a lot recently, then that's a good sign that it should be ready for whatever you intend to throw at it.

    I'd only be hesitant in the opposite scenario, if it had been mostly...
  38. Re: HELP Strange Engine Tapping / Knocking cold ( +video)

    If you have a 13 year old belt on that car, you need to replace that ASAP! Belts shouldn't go longer than 10 years no matter the mileage. Replace the tensioner too (since one mechanic said it could...
  39. Re: HELP Strange Engine Tapping / Knocking cold ( +video)

    Simply changing the oil isn't going to make lifter tick go away. Though it can make it quieter if you were previously running an improper oil weight or you were low on oil.

    I would expect a...
  40. Re: Questions / Opinions on 2007 Cayman S

    Definitely lowered. 20-30mm range, which is likely just lowering springs. I would never be fearful of buying a lowered car (slammed yes, but not reasonable lowered). Stock, these cars look too tall...
  41. Re: HELP Strange Engine Tapping / Knocking cold ( +video)

    My first guess would be lifters as well. All my cars have lifter tick until they're up to temperature. Keep it under 3krpm (preferably lower) until water and oil temps are where they should be.
