  1. KW HAS Suspension Kit on a 718 Cayman - Boxter

    718 Chat
    Just wondering if anyone has an experience with the KW Height Adjustable Suspension (HAS) kits?

  4. 991 Oil Filter Housing

    981 DIY Discussion
    Has anyone tried replacing the 981 oil filter housing with the housing from a 3.4L 991? The 991 housing has a 36mm "nut" molded into the end and would be a lot easier than trying to use a 14 flute tool that slips around the housing and doesn't allow a straight extension angle...

    718 Chat
    From Evo, Porsche has already confirmed the next Macan will be a pure electric car and that the Taycan-based Cross Turismo concept will arrive in production form in 2020, and Blume is clear that Porsche has to build the right cars for the right markets. So while Europe and the US has little...

    I've been asked by several people if I am ordering the new GT4 and the answer is simply No. I would just say No, but everyone wants reasons, so here are some of MY reason (don't have to apply to anyone else) and in no particular order. 1) The 4.0L engine does not rev as quickly as the older...
  13. Transmission Swap???

    981 Cayman GT4 Chat
    Got the call from Porsche, they want to swap out the transmission in my GT4 (nothing wrong, just a preventative recall so that I don't get the 3rd gear issue - which I haven't ever had). Anything to look out for from anyone who has had this done? Can I keep my original transmission? I mean...

    U.S. Southern Region
    Hi all! I have owned my little 2004 Honda S2000 for the last 9 years and I love it. But I am looking to upgrade and I am not sure to what! It has to be a convertible and it has to FEEL like an upgrade, if that makes sense. Boxster S feels like the direction I want to go. I am thinking 981...

    987 Cayman and Boxster Chat
    I noticed the dealers don't have any kind of touch up paint for the silver pieces of the interior. Wanted to touch up some of the chips around the base of the shift gate. Has anyone found a particular paint/tone that matches?
