    Re: Questions re Boxster convertible top

    I daily-drive my Boxster year-round and put the top up/down twice a day and leave it up in the garage at night. It's a 2014 as well; and so far, so good.

    I use 303 Fabric Guard and treat it about...

    From the pics, this is obviously a 987. A 987 starts off with a 1" smaller diameter rim on the same profile tire, so this would be the equivalent of running a 40-profile on 18's (or 35-profile on...

  31. Re: HPDE - Overall Tire Diameter or Revolutions per Mile

    I'm fairly certain what you are experiencing is due to your tire diameters and PSM. It's going to be detecting rear-wheel slippage due to your tire ratios, and will cut the power.

    Depreciation is the hardest hitter in resale value, regardless of who does the maintenance. If you had a 918 rather than a 981, it might be another story. Keep records and you should be good.

    981 Re: Changing wheel size on 2014 Boxster

    There is a setting on the TPMS to select the rim size.

    You'll run lower profile tires to get the same diameter (i.e. on 19's you'll run 235/40R19 & 265/40R19 vs. the 235/45R18 and 265/45R18). ...
