  2. Re: C6 Corvette has far superior handling than any Porsche

    I personally like the e46. But I will admit that the greater percentage M3 owners that I have met are the German-driving equivalent of stereotypical Mustang owners. Trying to race everything on the...

    Giulia Quadrifoglio 7:32
    C6 Z51 7:59
    981 Cayman S 8:04
    987 Cayman S 8:17

    No time for a regular Giulia. Also, was her Cayman an S or Base?

    Either way, the Giulia is a very well composed car....

  6. Re: C6 Corvette has far superior handling than any Porsche

    I'm not sure if your context is stating that the Planet-9ers are claiming our cars to be superior, but I don't think anyone is saying that; just that a Boxster handles better than a C6.

    The C6s...

    I've heard that many times and my response is always "Indeed it is, and it gets all the ladies' attention too."

  9. C6 Corvette has far superior handling than any Porsche

    I have driven a lot of cars and there is a reason why I chose a Boxster as my track/autocross/touge car.

    But I'm just so grateful that a stranger in the grocery store parking lot came over to...

    Re: 987.1 Cayman S Misc. Mods/Parts

  26. Re: MyNameIdeasWereTaken 987.1 S Progression Thread

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

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

  35. 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.
  36. 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...

  43. 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...

    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...
  47. 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...
  48. 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...
  49. 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...
  50. 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...
