  2. 981 Cayman/Boxster DIY and Repairs 2012-2016
    So at 35k miles on my 981, I'm now due for interim service. Up till now, I've done everything at the dealer, but after a few moves, I'm not particularly thrilled with the dealer closest to me and the one I like is exorbitantly expensive. I'm now at a point where I feel comfortable trying...

    Recently decided to buy my first Porsche - a 718 Cayman. Unfortunately there are no 2018 Caymans left in Miami Blue so that means I must order a 2019. One dealer says they don't have their allocation yet, and I don't see any 2019s on dealer lots yet. Has anyone seen or heard anything about...

    I just had the dealer install Numeric cables, and the shifter feels fantastic, but they can't get center console bolted on over the thicker beefier cables. It is the back of the center console near the back wall (against the engine) that won't bolt down over the new bigger cables. Numeric...

    When my battery exploded last month, Porsche sent me a $500 gift card for parts/service from a dealer. The car's still under an extended warranty with a small deductible and, hopefully, nothing major will go wrong before next February, so I'm looking for ideas on what to spend this on before it...

    When I ordered my 718CGTS, my dealer forgot to add PEC delivery. However, as compensation they were nice enough to give me a $600 gift certificate to the PEC here in Los Angeles. Been looking at the experiences offered and there are quite a few to choose from. Looking for recommendations...
  16. 981 Cayman/Boxster Problems & Complaints 2012-2016
    I need to tap the forum collective hive mind to solve a problem before the dealer charges me $5000 to fix it. I brought the car in for a replacement of the Porsche Active Safe (PAS) under warranty, which only worked for the first 5000 miles I had the car. Last week the "PSM Failure" warning also...

    I recently purchased a 14 BS (great car - CPO). While I like the dealer, I know that dealer maintenance is very expensive. Does anyone know of an independent shop that does good work and is reasonably priced. I live halfway between Chicago and Milwaukee. Thanks for any help.

    I ran across a 2014 Porsche Cayman S at a local Porsche dealer that has me considering purchasing used rather than ordering a new base 781 Cayman. Here are the details: This dealer leased the car in 2013 for 3 years and sold it to a 2nd owner, who traded it back in after 9 months. All services...

    Just got a new Cayman S with 20" tires (Pirelli 265/35 zr20 95Y) from a dealer in Chicago and when the car was delivered, the tire pressure was like 40 psi for the rear tires. The door panel said it should be 33 so I let the pressure down. Then a few days later I had to take it to the local...

    I gave my CS 2015 ~50k miles for a service. The dealer called me back and said that I need to service front brakes but I decided to do it at a later time. When I got the car back, A persistent brake warning message was displayed (though it say it's ok to drive) and the red brakes light is on...
