  1. Tyre Pressure Monitor

    981 Chat
    Hi, I had new tyres fitted to my car yesterday and now everytime i start the car I get the warning popping up. Sorry, i'm away at present and I don't have my manual. How do you reset this?
  2. 987.1 What Really needs to be for light track duty?

    987 Cayman and Boxster Chat
    It seems like people sit in 1 of 3 camps when it comes to the 987.1 1) Don't track it it will explode 2) Don't track it with R-Compound tires stock 3) Swap oil pan/ AOS/ PS Coole/ ETC and go wild. Let's say you had a daily driver that you occasionally wanted to attend a HPDE with. Seeing as...
  3. 987.1 S front caliper rebuild

    987 Cayman and Boxster Service and Tech
    After my brake pad debacle which involved some dampers seized in caliper pistons, I'm faced with a full rebuild of my front calipers. Where can I get pistons and seals? Pelican and Sun Coast sell dust seals, but not inner rings or pistons. I see that Performance Brakes sells pistons, seals, and...

  6. Sound

    981 Chat
    Can you live with this sound? Two reviews of the base and S 718 Boxster. Not bad reviews so can't and don't want to post it in the 718 thread. Don't want to upset 718 owners either. Performance aside, does this sound like a car you could buy? Not for me. Heard it in person also at my local...

    981 Chat
    Which brake pads produce the least dust Now that we have a few years in....which brake pad produces the least dust for the 981? I know many say performance is the main concern but since I don't track or drive aggesivly I want a pad with as little dust as possible. Any suggestions?
  8. First 911

    Club 911 - General Discussion
    After two months of vacillating on what to replace my Lotus with I finally picked up a 991 C2S today. Considered the GTR, R8, Viper, C7 Z06 & 997TT, but saw this one and couldn't pass it up. PDK (1st non-manual, hope I don't regret it!), SC, SPASM, fire extinguisher (woohoo), sport technos...
  9. Is Serialized TV dead or dying?

    General Off-Topic
    Is TV dead or dying, regardless of format (e.g., network, netflix) ? How Many network TV shows do you like so much you "must" see them to the extent you either watch it live, tape it, or stream it later - the point being that you really like the show so much you don't want to miss it any week...
  10. Question eBay seller 'qualityporscheparts'

    987 Cayman and Boxster Chat
    Has anyone else been blocked by this seller? I am unable to buy, make an offer or even contact them. I've never done business with them before. I've spoken to two people at eBay. One said she would contact the seller and try to find out why I've been banned. I don't think she actually did it...
  11. Car 'hunting' at idle

    981 Cayman and Boxster Problems and Complaints
    Does anyone else have a car that hunts at idle? By that I mean it isn't rock-solid on an rpm, but moves up and down slightly? I've had the PSM/Stop-Start warning a couple of time, but months apart, so I don't think it's related. Might be a weak battery, but just looking for a sanity check...
  12. Portable CTEK Equivalent?

    987 Cayman and Boxster Electronics
    I recently got a CTEK to keep my Cayman battery maintained (been dead a few times because of infrequent driving). The issue is that I don't readily have access to a wall outlet (though I do for emergency/infrequent situations). So it is sort of a solution, but not that great. Rather than use a...
  13. Help me paint my Cayman

    987 Cayman and Boxster Chat
    My car is triple black. Very boring and truthfully, I don't like black cars. So I have been looking at various colors and I am leaning towards painting the car 2 tone yellow and black. I'm thinking of leaving the rockers black, the lower half of the front bumper and splitter black, and the rear...
  14. Window Sticker Interest Poll - Please Respond!

    News Items
    Ok I have found a place to make window stickers and I either need to buy 100, 250 or 500, buying 500 is the most economical in terms of cost per unit, but given the overall costs I'm not going to be able to send these out to people free of charge. In other words what I will need for members to...
  15. Shift Cable Installers - Lowering Motor Necessary?

    987 Cayman and Boxster Chat
    Is dropping the motor a few inches necessary to install new shift cables? I plan on driving my car up onto my rhino ramps and don't know if my wimpy jack will have enough height to support the motor. Cheers
  16. 718 Camera Question

    718 Chat
    Do all 718's have backup cameras? I seem to recall some sort of federal mandate for them on 2017+ cars but don't recall if that was put into place or not, hence asking if all 718's have them or not and if they do, where do they put the camera unit?
  17. My new 718 boxster

    718 Chat
    I just drove my new 718 Boxster home. I was surprised about everything in it. There are a lot of improvements on the Nav, Phone and Radio systems. To me the sound wasn't bad at all, in fact I like it and the acceleration was amazing. I didn't want to rev it up too much but up to 4000 RPM it...
  18. Malicious Software detected on P-9????

    Community Help
    This just started within the last hour. Every time I click a link on P-9, MalawareBytes pops-up the following: I shut-down Chrome and restarted. I then opened most of my usual web-sites with no issues. But as soon as I opened P-9 - I start seeing this. Am I the only one having this problem? I...
  19. How do I know when I need new break pads?

    987 Cayman and Boxster Service and Tech
    I have a 2008 Cayman S with original pads and 35k miles. No track days ever by me... cant say what the prior owner had done. Is there a thickness to use as a guide? I don't wan to replace if they don't need it; but, I am getting squeal and its likely just dust. However, it got me thinking...
  20. Star Trek and the Gay Sulu

    General Off-Topic
    Ok first of I want to say that I do NOT want this topic breaking down into political or religious rants about homosexuality. I'm focused on a specific set of questions involving the revelation that the creators of Star Trek Beyond have decided to make Sulu openly gay in the upcoming movie...
