    Welcome to the club! I just bought my second Cayman in April after selling my 987 last year. They really are excellent cars. Mine is a base too and I just upgraded my exhaust to factory PSE. My next...

    Re: Aftermarket catback vs PSE

    I'd say it depends if you want the factory button enabled or not. I had PSE installed and coded for around $3800 by my local Porsche dealer. I'm pretty pleased with it but be aware that the tone of...

    If that's your car in the picture its much prettier and likely much more reliable.
  4. Re: PSM failure start stop deactivated, 16 Cayman S

    I have a 2015 base 981 and am wondering when the battery should be replaced preventativly. I had it checked at the dealer about three months ago during a PPI and they said it checked out fine but...

    Re: The C8 from American Cars hater

    Looks good in white. The tail lights should have been rounded like a Ferrari or Ford GT40 in my opinion.

    Re: Adding PSE to 981 Cayman Base

    Gotta say I'm really liking the PSE sound. Was out driving around with the windows down on a nice warm night tonight. Just a note, I get the burbles and pops even without sport mode enabled...

    Re: Adding PSE to 981 Cayman Base

    That's interesting. I was told by the mechanic that the Sport button changes the valve timing and thought that is what caused the extra burbles and occaisional backfires. I also heard them before...

  10. Question Re: Airbag light (passenger's thorax and Communication PSM control unit)

    I had this same issue in my 987 when my wife would try to recline the seat too far. The airbag light would come on if there was too much pressure on the back part of the seat. Once the seat was...

    Great quote! I watched a YouTube video in installation. For me it's worth it to pay the dealer, don't think I'd attempt that on my own.

    Very pretty in red. How did you remove the Cayman logo? I'm thinking of doing that too but not sure if an outline would remain in the paint.

    Cayman Re: Interior spec guidance

    What's not to enjoy. Looks beautiful and I agree that the darker color is Agate gray, not black. I've seen this combo in person and it looks very good.
