  1. DIY Garage Blind-Spot Mirror Guide

    Automotive Off Topic
    I posted this DIY on another site, but I would like to share with the Porsche community as well. Nobody wants a fender-bender or even one tiny little scratch on their precious Porsches. My garage is in the parking lot of a very active apartment complex and I hold my breath every time I pull my...
  2. Help with choosing lift

    987 Cayman and Boxster Service and Tech
    Soon, I will be purchasing a lift; my primary use case is to allow easier tire/brake service, oil changes, mods, etc. Car is 2012 Cayman R used for HDPE, time trials, hillclimbs, autox. I doubt I'll be doing anything as extensive as dropping the motor/gear box, but I will likely add headers, I...

  5. Scratch repair in Los Angeles

    987 Cayman and Boxster Chat
    So my 2009 Cayman, always garaged, always carefully parked, never eaten in, with 31,000 (yes, I do drive it, just not a daily), was the victim of a metal plate skidding across the freeway in Burbank. Appeared from underneath the car in front of me. There was no way to avoid it. I was kind...
  6. Daytona 3-Day Track Event & Garage Package December 8-10, 2017

    U.S. Southern Region
    Good Morning Fellow Track Junkies: I hope this finds each of you enjoying another cool Fall. I for one think a more southern location in early December is a good idea. Perhaps a Fall (remember Winter starts December 21st) trip to sunny, warm Daytona International Speedway for three days...

  8. Never Happened Before

    981 Chat
    I took the Cayman out for a romp the other day. I came home and parked it in the garage like always. A few minutes later I took the other car out for an errand. After the errand I parked it in the garage next to the Cayman like always. About ten minutes later I went out to the garage for...
  9. Which is Harder on the Battery

    981 DIY Discussion
    I just replaced the AGM battery in my 2013 BB. I chose to let my (not so local) Porsche Dealer do the job at $406 complete with initializing. I was wondering which is best way to park your car in a locked garage. 1) Locked 2) Unlocked. I seem to remember some on making the argument that...
  10. Any suggestions?

    General Off-Topic
    Hi all, I am looking for some solutions to renovate my garage flooring. I bought this building a few years ago and set up a car garage here. However, I have recently started noticing some cracks in the garage floor. I think it is because the building is very old. Now I have to do something and...
  11. Pre-engineered steel buildings?

    General Off-Topic
    Hi all, I own a plot near Toronto. I am planning to construct a commercial building there and give it for rent. The idea is to get some earnings on a monthly basis. And the plot is lying vacant anyway, so I thought this would be a perfect idea. So when I looked at the different options I was...
  12. Mild modifications for 2013 BS

    981 Cayman and Boxster Modifications
    New to the forum. I bought my 2013 BS in February. It has just over 7k miles. I bought it in TX. Since I live in the Chicago area this car doesn't come out of the garage much. Total Garage Queen. That being said I would like to increase the performance from a HP standpoint. The car won't...

    Hi all, I need to know if are there any other ways to protect aluminum. I have a garage and I was searching about how I can protect it from wear and tear.

  15. Unheated garage ceiling - parachute fabric?

    Porsche Care and Detailing
    I've got an older detached, unheated, uninsulated 2 car garage where my two German frauleins (2015 981S "Scarlett" and '73 450SL "old girl") sleep during the winter. Here in Boise this winter has been a multi-decade snowmaggedon, and we likely won't thaw out until March. I really want to get out...

    Anyone successfully program the HomeLink buttons to open a garage door? Our garage door opener is a Chamberlain/LiftMaster with rolling code. I have performed the steps at least 2 dozen times with no success. Tried the HomeLink, LiftMaster and Porsche instructions. FAIL! :( One weird thing...
  17. Extreme Humidity - Car started rough and through P0301 and P0302

    987 Cayman and Boxster Chat
    Over the weekend we had strange weather with extreme humidity. The inside of my garage was lierally dripping with water and everything was wet with condensation. I think its because the weather warmed up quickly, was humid, and the inside of the garage was still very cold. My question is...

  19. Need a Ramp.. suggestion?

    981 Chat
    Good news - we bought a condo by the sea and there's a garage to protect my car Bad news - the incline down into the garage is quite steep. So steep in fact, that (a) the lower plastic lip scrapes the floor (Ouch!) and (b) I actually have to back it out of the garage, which is quite scary. (see...
  20. dehumidifiers

    981 Chat
    Classic car magazines contain ads for long-term storage stressing dehumidification (typically down to 50-55% relative humidity) to reduce rusting, etc. Newer cars have less iron-based parts and have better rust protection. QUESTION: How important is this issue? TO PUT THIS INTO CONTEXT . . ...
