    Re: 987.1 vs 987.2

    Find a Boxster you like, and buy sports seats to put in it, either factory or 3rd party. Does Koenig make an adapter to fit your current seats?

    The swap is only 8 bolts.

  24. Re: Painting brake calipers - special tool required

    Unless someone used the wrong bolts, Porsche caliper bolts are female. From the factory they are Torx, and replacements are hex, from a dealer.

    Do you have the list of option codes for the car? This will list the wheel, and usually, the colour. Often in the 4xx Range.

    Allen head bolts were used at the factory, and are superseded by the T55 for replacement. You need 2 tools for the first change, then only one after that. Dumb.
