  1. 19" Lobster Wheels Value?

    Porsche Tires & Wheels
    Hi, Just wondering what a set of bare set of 19" lobster claw (fork) wheels are valued at. Before I post them in classifieds, no real idea of their value. No curb rash, dents, dings. Some minor paint flecking on one wheel, but hard to see. Came as an option on 2007 Cayman S. Used for about...
  2. TPMS Units for 2009 Boxster S II Wheels on 2007 Cayman S

    Porsche Tires & Wheels
    I am ordering TPMS units and valve stems for a 2007 Cayman S that is wearing 2009 Boxster S II wheels. Will the TPMS units and stems for the 2007 Cayman S fit these 2009 Boxster S II wheels? Thanks. Phil
  3. 987.1 CS or '85 Carrera 3.2 Cabriolet (In Dad's Estate)?

    987 Cayman and Boxster Comparisons
    On May 21, my father passed away. At age 85, he was still enjoying his 1985 Carrera 3.2 Cabriolet. A European version with under 60,000 miles in bright red paint, it is a nice car. And it is also now part of my Dad's estate. What would you choose, a 2007 Cayman S with 6 speed manual (my...
  4. TPMS Sensors - Best Bet in 2015?

    Porsche Tires & Wheels
    I looked in "Articles" but did not see anything recent, only a post on the Beru units from 2011. What am I missing or not doing right? Thanks. Phil
  5. TPMS Sensors - Best Bet in 2015?

    Porsche Tires & Wheels
    The new problem I am facing is that my local dealer refuses to install ANY aftermarket sensors. Unless the sensors come of THEIR parts shelf, no install. They said they had three customers come in who had aftermarket sensors installed on their Porsches, hoping the dealer could make them work...
  6. TPMS Sensors - Best Bet in 2015?

    Porsche Tires & Wheels
    After learning my two preferred Porsche dealers want $173 and $225 EACH for TPMS sensors, I need to go aftermarket. I've read all I can here, and it seems there is a risk of aftermarket units not working. Is there any consensus on a reliable aftermarket product in 2015? Many of the threads...
  7. Cayman Ride and Tires

    987 Cayman and Boxster Chat
    Thanks for your reply. With all due respect, I am fully aware the Porsche is a sports car, has a stiff suspension, etc. In my opinion, the Cayman's suspension is NOT too stiff or harsh from a general design point of view when used on most roads. It is just too much on MY roads, which are not...
  8. Cayman Ride and Tires

    987 Cayman and Boxster Chat
    This post is in the 987 forum (not tire) because I need sound experienced advice on my Cayman, ride, and tires. My Cayman is a 2007 model with standard suspension, on 2009 Boxster S II 18" wheels shod with 6 year old Michelin PS2s. On the roads I find myself on, the ride is the worst thing...
  9. 987.1 vs 987.2 Suspension Differences

    987 Cayman and Boxster Service and Tech
    I have a 2007 Cayman S with standard suspension and 18" wheels. I had 19s but removed them because the roads around here are so bad, I was being beat to death. I am looking at a 2009 Boxster with standard suspension with 19s. Did the standard suspension change from the 987.1 to the 987.2? Is...
  10. Fuel Filler - Major Splashback

    987 Cayman and Boxster Chat
    Was curious how much more fuel my 2007 Cayman S would take after a first click from the gas station fuel line. So, I continued filling until on the slowest setting. When it got past two extra gallons, I stopped, becoming worried just where is that much extra fuel is going. I pulled out the...
  11. '07 Cayman S Owner Test Drives '14 Boxster 2.7

    981 Cayman and Boxster Comparisons
    I just returned from a test drive in a 2014 Boxster 2.7, 6MT. Was curious how this car would compare to my 2007 Cayman S. In particular, torque at rpm seen in normal driving (< 4000). I didn't exceed that in the Boxster as it had just 45 miles on it. The Boxster impressed. The thing is as...
  12. Old Tires = Harder Ride?

    Porsche Tires & Wheels
    I will replace the old PS2s very soon. Don't want to drive on these in cold and wet weather. Probably going for Sumitomo HTR Z III tires. Had these on my old 1998 BMW M3 sedan, and I thought they were actually quite good. Car is never tracked and I don't drive hard, so hoping will suit...
  13. Carrera 4S Wheels on a 2007 Cayman Base?

    Porsche Tires & Wheels
    I have a 2007 Cayman S (w/o PASM) and removed the 19" lobster wheels that came on it as a factory option. On my roads, the ride was just too jarring and hard. I put 2009 Boxster S II 18" wheels on it, which helped with the ride. Went from 35 series to 40 series tires. I've driven a 991 with...
  14. Old Tires = Harder Ride?

    Porsche Tires & Wheels
    See photos of left and right rear tires. I really don't see any cracking, except for very tiny fine cracks in outside tread (not discernible in pics). The climate here has ranged from high 20s to low 100s. Humidity is on average low to modest. The fronts are less worn and from what I see...
  15. Old Tires = Harder Ride?

    Porsche Tires & Wheels
    I have been on a series of job interviews in the San Francisco bay area sending me on 90 mile round trips, and I have to say, my 2007 Cayman S (std suspension, 18" wheels), is beating me up pretty good. I mean, I am physically feeling it when I get home. I am wondering if old tires could be a...
  16. Very Short Ticking on SOME Starts

    987 Cayman and Boxster Problems and Complaints
    Just wondering what some ticking might be on 2007 CS w/30,500 miles. It sometimes does it when cold, but I think more often when slightly warm. The ticking is noticeable, but goes away within two seconds or so. Knowing how long it can take oil pressure to build, I am wondering if it is a...
  17. PSE Sports Exhaust on 987.1

    987 Cayman and Boxster Chat
    I am in San Ramon (SF bay area) and have a 2007 Cayman S with Sport Chrono, which has the sport exhaust. It does make a noticeable difference in sound. - Phil

  19. Question on instrument panel service interval

    987 Cayman and Boxster Service and Tech
    I just asked my service advisor about the service indicator coming on as I thought it come on every year. He said no. My 2007 Cayman S will trigger the indicator as infrequently as every two years. He recommends a yearly oil change (if miles less than 10k). My indicator went on last year...
  20. $340 or $399 Oil Change!

    987 Cayman and Boxster Service and Tech
    I am the OP and just got my 2007 Cayman S back from a dealer who did the oil change. At first, a service advisor hit me with the $340 price. For a "yearly service". I said another service advisor said I could get an oil change for $120. Now the service ticket says "PO Yearly Service -...
