  1. Re: inevitability of failure of the IMS and Lokasil

    IMS failure in the 987 series is ridiculously overstated. It's reported, by very reliable sources and experience, to be less than 1% of all 987s. You're just as likely to be hit by lightening. Bore...

    Re: Tire Rack Order - Should I Complain?

    Willing to bet the discount was due to the manufacturing date, BUT, they should have told you that. Call them, let them know you're unhappy and see if they'll step up. Keep us posted.

    Re: 2007 Cayman - random BRAKE! notice

    Correct me if I'm wrong, but I believe the hand brake light is the same light that comes on as a warning regarding needing brake pads. Are you sure it's not time for pads?

  30. Boxster S Re: 2005 Boxster S - Intermittent charging issues

    How old is your battery? I'd have that checked first. You could have a cell failing. And failing batteries in our cars cause all kinds of weird things to happen, unlike most cars.
