  1. Has anybody made a switch or owned an audi r8?

    Club 911 - General Discussion
    For the second time in the last two years, I am toying with the idea of making the switch to a 2014-2015 Audi R8. It might be easier to resist this time around seeing that I am presently driving a 2017 911S. I have always been fascinated with the R8 but know the 911 is a more dependable car...
  2. COBB Tuning 718 Access Ports

    Arcflash LLC
    PORSCHE 718 BOXSTER / CAYMAN POWER GAINS Base models of the 718 Boxster and Cayman utilize a turbocharged 2.0L motor. The factory boost levels of around 20.3 psi is good for a rated 300 HP and 280 TQ. That translated into 301 HP and 303 TQ to the wheels for recorded baseline dyno runs. Our...
  3. Replacement ball joints for convertible top?

    987 Cayman and Boxster Service and Tech
    So today the weather was nice and I went out for a drive, tried to lower the top and it just stayed put though the rear clamshell opened and the motors whirred. Looking around in there it looks like there is a lever with a plastic ball on it that is broken and those levers are just flopping...
  4. Labor cost for installing GT3 LCAs vs. adjustable camber plates

    981 Cayman and Boxster Competition
    Two camber-adjustable GT3 LCAs for a 981 cost around $2k. Two adjustable camber plates from Elephant Racing or other quality sources cost around $500. In addition to comparative functional merit—-LCAs seem the better way to go—- I want to consider retail cost of installation by a professional...
  5. Fine lines in windshield

    718 Chat
    There are a few fine lines around the windshield, including around the rear view mirror area and down the middle of the glass. Does anyone know what they are?
  6. Front headlight conversion to LED

    981 DIY Discussion
    I saw a YouTube video on this and I could swear the author mentioned the price as somewhere around $2000. However, when I did a search, I discovered this: Can anyone recommend a certain brand of LED's ?
  7. Ever try driving around in the recommended gear?

    981 Chat
    If drive your 6MT around town in normal mode and follow the upshift light, it will have you running around 1200-1500 RPM. Lolling down the road at 35 mph in 5th... it's pretty weird, but it works. Really chill.
  8. Gum in the floor mats.

    981 Chat
    I was whipping around the hills and oddly I couldn't easily move my clutch heel around. Turns out I had gum on the back of my heel, and it had spread around and embedded into the floor mat. It was very unpleasant to have that spot sticky, so I figured I'd be buying a new mat soon. But I got...
  9. 2010 Cayman or 2006 Cayman S?

    987 Cayman and Boxster Chat
    Hi all! Hope this hasn't been asked before, but I didn't see anything in a somewhat quick search. So I'm looking for a warm weather weekend, fun car to celebrate my pending divorce (yay me!). For basically the same price my current top choices are a 2010 Cayman with the Cayman S wheels, or a...
  10. Any discounts at Suncoastparts?

    Site Vendors & Sponsors
    Do the members get year around discount?
  11. DIY rotor replacement ==> some basic questions!

    981 Chat
    Hey guys/gals, Thanks for reading. I am posting in the main 981 forum as it doesn't seem like there is much traffic, relatively, in the DIY forum. Thanks for reading! Title says almost says it all! I have some randomish but easy questions RE doing a brake rotor replacement. I am planning...
  12. 718 Cayman DRLs

    718 Chat
    For US cars with the PDLS option, where are the DRLs? Are they the 4 point lights around the headlight or the flat LED strip on the bumper? Thanks
  13. How hard is it to find a 2012 Cayman? and why?

    981 Chat
    I have been trying to buy a 2012 or newer Cayman for a few months now. All the CPOs in my area (Bay Area, Norcal) are 2014/2015 and priced around 50k and I wish I could locate a 2012 and spend less. Why can't I find any 2012's around? I see Boxster(s) but zero Caymans so far. What gives?
  14. Here comes my new 987 S 2006

    987 Cayman and Boxster Chat
    Hi All First, I would like to thank everyone for their guide and support that greatly helped me not in searching my first Porsche, but also deciding to own one. And sorry for the late coming of the pics. I was spending to much time having fun with the car :D So we took the car on Saturday...
  15. Behold... the 991.2 GT3 is here

    Club 911 - General Discussion
    I'm surprised there are no threads discussing this 4.0L 9,000rpm revving animal. I find the design a bit edgy with the colored rim edge and boxy vents all around... but I LOVE IT.
  16. Is this what an exhaust leak looks like?

    981 Cayman and Boxster Problems and Complaints
    Looking around and noticed this black stuff around a joint in the exhaust. Looked at the other side and didn't really see any so I think it may be a leak. What do you think?
  17. Repairable? (Aluminum sub frame)

    987 Cayman and Boxster Service and Tech
    After installing my front lower control arm I was getting some awful creaking noises. I thought it wasn't torqued down enough. Since I couldn't get my torque wrench in there, I flipped the bolt around and put the nut on the other side. That made it so my non-deep socket #16 could grip the...
  18. First computer

    General Off-Topic
    What was your first home computer ? In the 90s I didnt even own one. If I needed the internet I used the one at work. Around 2000 I bought a Dell Inspiron laptop. 30 gig hard drive, 384 RAM and Windows XP. DIal up from AOL. Around $1000 at the time. I was living large.:dance::dance: Was...
  19. What the heck has K-Man S been up to lately???

    Automotive Off Topic
    I know I know, I haven't been around as much (still checking in, just not commenting as much, and still performing my admin duties). It turns out something has been keeping me a little busy. Here is what it is:!AnFEAPfekja9goVNGv9BR8F0lH_a7A Enjoy the pics!
  20. When will the 2018 model year 718 Cayman become available for ordering?

    718 Chat
    OK, I realize that it's early 2017 and the 2017 model came out only recently, but I am looking at placing an order around May/June 2017 and am under the impression that the 2018 models will be available for ordering around then. Not that I expect any major changes given that the 2017 model is...
