  1. Wind Diffuser for 718

    718 Chat
    The wind noise and buffeting (cavitation) on my 718 was absolutely driving me crazy, to the point that I couldn't drive with the windows open. I purchased the AWE wind diffuser and had it put on today. The installation took about 10 minutes and the difference is incredible. Why doesn't Porsche...
  2. Any good books on the Cayman yet?

    718 Chat
    Looking to learn about Cayman/718 history and development....thanks.
  3. 718 GT4 - Success or Failure?

    981 Cayman GT4 Chat
    Ok I'm starting to get enough questions of "Hey are you trading your existing GT4 in on a new one?" that I thought I would pose the question to all of you about what would make the new 718 GT4 a success or failure. While I am not planning to trade or buy one, here are some thoughts from my...
  4. My first 911... Wheel questions for the group.

    Club 911 - General Discussion
    My introduction to the Porsche world was a 2014 Cayman Base, and not only did it confirm my childhood assumptions about what it felt like to drive a Porsche, it also taught me about the features and options that I want to have in the long term. Since it's impossible (or prohibitively expensive)...
  5. Replacement tire

    981 Cayman and Boxster Problems and Complaints
    Hi Everyone. I put Michelin Pilot Sport 4S' on my Cayman this spring and have loved them for about 12,000 km. I recently took a road trip to PEI in Canada and hit a hard thing on the road which blew out the sidewall on the left rear. It took two days to get a new tire from Montreal but all is...

    U.S. Northeast (Nor'Easters) Region
    Anyone else going to this event? It looks like it will be British & German marquees taking center stage and PCA has a designated area, and I hear that some PCA folks are meeting up earlier at a Starbucks to drive over together....thing I can't figure out is where is the information for the PCA...
  7. '16 Spyder Owner's Manual

    981 Boxster Spyder Chat
    Did your 16 Spyder come with anything specific about the Spyder ? Got mine used and it only has manual for regular Boxster, nothing specific about top operation or rear hatch.
  8. Confusion about steering wheels

    718 Chat
    I have 718 S with the "standard" steering wheel. I kind of want something smaller diameter, a little thicker. Have been looking around and have been unsuccessful confirming, for sure, that the "GT Multifunction Steering Wheel" (for example, like on SunCoast's website) is, in fact, smaller...
  9. Difficulty with reverse gear.

    981 Cayman GT4 Chat
    Our car seems to have a hesitancy to get into reverse gear at times. About 1/5 times it will not go into reverse. I have the clutched pressed all the way in and can row through all the other gears, but it just doesn't slide over. When this happens it takes about 5-6 attempts and then it will...
  10. TPMS alert feature idea

    Porsche Tires & Wheels
    I had a puncture and slow leak today (on a fun run, in the middle of nowhere, rats.). The TPMS warned when it was down to like 29psi, below the norm of 34 cold, about 38+ warmed up at the time. Somebody should send P some software folks and give me an alarm when it's trending down, not just...
  11. The Truth About Buying Porsche GT Cars That Everyone Knows, But Is Afraid To Say

    Porsche Sales & Leasing
    I ran across this interesting video about people speculating in Porsche GT cars. The narrator speaks from a perspective of the UK and also talks about how a lot of dealers try to get people to up-option their prospective Porsche purchase into a more expensive model. He makes a lot of other...
  12. Lost all sound from Bose stereo system?

    981 Cayman and Boxster Electronics
    So I went on a short drive today, and when I got back in my car about an hour later I had no sound from my speakers. Nothing worked. No FM, aux, CD, bluetooth phone connection. Nothing. No amount of tinkering could bring any sound from the stereo speakers. The stereo functions all seem to...
  13. Denver to Raleigh in 2 days

    718 Chat
    So we are moving to the Raleigh area and I had to get my 718 Cayman out there. So i drove. 14 hours the first day and 12 the second. Now, I'm only 43, but let me tell you my @$$ was killing me. I have the 14 way seats, but still. The drive was fantastic. Especially the last part through...
  14. Live near Philly with LED headlights?

    718 Chat
    I should have asked this question when it the days were shorter, but I was too busy getting rear-ended. Do you live near the Philadelphia area and have LED headlights on your 718? When I spec'd out mine I had wished for some photos of the comparison between them and bi-xenons (which I...
  15. Buying Macan (CPO) Advice

    Cayenne and Macan Chat
    Hi, I am plannning to buy a CPO Macan for my wife. We test drove this one today: I like the configuration, and the car looks very nice. What are your opinions about...
  16. PDK Transmission Pentosin Level; temperature

    981 DIY Discussion
    I just wanted to vent a bit about the fact that Porsche did not integrate information on PDK fluid levels nor fluid temperatures into the DME. How do I know if my PDK's pentosin level is on-spec ? Low or High ? What about the temperature of the fluid ? (especially after some launch control...
  17. Hello From los Angeles

    U.S. West Region
    Hello Everyone, I wanted to introduce myself and hopefully meet with locals in my area. I am a proud owner of a 09 Cayman as of two weeks ago. I recently moved with my fiance to Los Angeles about a year now from the Bay area (Fremont/ san Jose). This will be my first Porsche as all my other...
  18. 2009 Base, 21.5k miles, $17.5k--Is this a good deal?

    718 Chat
    Thanks for reading. I'm a total newb on these forums (and to Porsches), so I'm trying to get calibrated on whether a used Cayman I'm looking at is or isn't a good/great deal. After looking for a couple of months, I found an '09 base model, a six-speed. The car has had two owners and has only...
  19. Re did headliner

    987 Cayman and Boxster Chat
    Had a few hours today, and wanted to do something in the shade to stay cool. Figured I would tackle the headliner that dropped on my head over a month ago. Seems to be a common problem in the heat. Was not the glue that broke down, but the foam backing falling apart. Removed the headliner...
