  1. Will the regular Boxster or Cayman cover fit the Spyder

    981 Boxster Spyder Chat
    I know they have an indoor cover, but wondering if the other covers will work on the Spyder.
  2. Cleaning Your Spyder

    981 Boxster Spyder Chat
    The Master Blaster is the 8HP version. It works faster than less powerful versions, but you need the power to run it. If I attach it to an extension cord, it blows my circuit. I have a 30' hose so I'm okay. I use it starting with the top, then windows. Windows dried this way have NO spots or...
  3. Cleaning Your Spyder

    981 Boxster Spyder Chat
    I have Xpel on the front, and CQuartz UK on the entire body. When I got the car, I washed and clashed it, then went over with carpro essence and a carpro gloss pad. If the car wasn't new or needed correction, I use a meguiars Microfiber cutting pad. Afterwards I use the CQuartz and reload...
  4. Spyder top just not a big deal...

    981 Boxster Spyder Chat
    I've had my car for a few weeks, and had the rope down a few times (it's barely spring here). I just ran out to get some beer this afternoon and it was nice and sunny so I wanted the top down. Took me about 45 seconds to drop, enjoy my beer run and another 45 seconds to close it up. After a...
  5. Spyder Waiting Club

    981 Boxster Spyder Chat
    Everyone went perfect. I wrote some first impressions under that thread if you're interested. I boat up in Midland at Bayport, stop by some time after mid April when we go in the water.
  6. Why don't some people like the Spyder ragtop?

    981 Boxster Spyder Chat
    I think the Spyder top looks better than the regular boxster top and the manual function isn't too hard. Automatic too would be easier, but it would mean we lose the streamers. Given the choice, I would rather have the manual. I really don't like the normal boxster top exposed when down...
  7. Spyder 1st Impressons

    981 Boxster Spyder Chat
    Just picked mine up today. It's raining out so I just drove home without really playing. Here's my impressions: The fit and finish of the car is excellent. I've had 14 Porsches ranging from 1989-2009 911's, a 928 GTS, 944 Turbo, 968 Turbo, and most recently a Macan Turbo (that I still own)...
  8. Spyder Waiting Club

    981 Boxster Spyder Chat
    I pick mine up at Pfaff tomorrow. It's been a long wait, but looking at the weather forecast it's going to rain. Even rain isn't going to diminish tomorrow :)
  9. My Spyder roof failed at speed

    981 Boxster Spyder Chat
    This helps me too. My car just arrived today, I'll be picking it up Thursday.
  10. My Spyder roof failed at speed

    981 Boxster Spyder Chat
    Thanks, I feel a little silly now for asking. I just didn't understand it when I first read it. I haven't tried the top yet, so not sure what I "should" feel.
  11. My Spyder roof failed at speed

    981 Boxster Spyder Chat
    Can you give e more details on what happened and what we can check to make sure other cars aren't affected by this? My car is supposed to arrive this week and I'd like to make sure this doesn't happen to me.. thanks.
  12. The "say something *genuinely* nice about the 718" thread

    718 Chat
    One more thing, I did briefly consider changing my Spyder order for a 718. It was brief, but it happened. Im coming from a 997TT before I switched to a Macan Turbo due to injuries. I worried about the lack of perceived power and the 718 might feel quicker. Im staying with the Spyder, but the...
  13. The "say something *genuinely* nice about the 718" thread

    718 Chat
    I like the back end and the headlights. I like the steering wheel over the 981, but not as much as the Spyder I have on order. The performance of the engine will likely make it more fun in the city with low end power. I like CarPlay, but I actually need email and CarPlay blocks my access to...
  14. GT 4 buyers got screwed!

    981 Cayman GT4 Chat
    I don't know this is accurate. If the 718 had a PDK, that's where the time savings came from. I'm not a huge fan of the PDK, it's okay in my Macan, but it is faster.
  15. Whose doing extended warrantees?

    981 Boxster Spyder Chat
    I had an 08 997 C2S and added the extended warantee just before the original expired. . Two weeks later a check engine light came on and they had to replace the engine. I lucked out. On the day I went to pick it up with new engine, there was a 997 Turbo Cab. I never even saw my old car with...
