  2. 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...

  7. Grilled

    Automotive Off Topic
    A number of cars/manufacturers are known for their distinctive grilles. Edsel was a good US example, but BMW, Lexus, Nissan, Bugatti among others are with us today. Some are handled better than others, personally I don't mind the BMW beaver teeth but really dislike the others I mentioned. This...
  8. Painting pinstripes on the wheels

    Porsche Tires & Wheels
    I've registered on the Corvette/Stingray forum today. No, I'm not buying a Vette, but I've found there the proper way to make red pinstripes on my black wheels, and needed to ask some questions. I was thinking about it for a while, and want to update the looks of my car after 5 years. I'm...
  9. Will a 235/45/19 tire work?

    Porsche Tires & Wheels
    Important I admit upfront, other than knowing tires are round, I know little about what all the weird tire numbers mean. I've got a 2007 Cayman S. It came with 19" tires and PASM. I love the look. And while the ride isn't jarring, I would like it to be a bit more comfortable. I've read 18" with...
  10. Boxster Question about LED DLR / Fog on 987.1

    987 Cayman and Boxster Modifications
    Hi Everyone. New here. Purchased a 2005 987.1 a few months back and have slowly been making my way through some updates and aftermarket adds. I'm now looking at possibly adding the more modern looking LED fog. Looks like many folks have done it and there are great threads showing how to do it...
  11. Houston indy - great experience at European Auto Techniks

    U.S. Texarkana Region
    I called Michael Crawley last week to ask about a DE inspection and he said to come in any time. I dropped by one day mid-morning and he stopped what he was doing to give my BS a quick look over and fill out the required form. He let me look around both buildings a bit, lots of old...

  15. Removing driver's side mirror

    981 Chat
    I have a very tight garage and a while ago I hit the mirror as I was backing in. The mirror folded forward, as it should and I thought there was no damage. It turns Lou the there is about a 1/4 of play up and down, so I thought I'd look at disassembling it if it wasn't too involved. Can...
  16. Advice on removing 987.2 2.9 intake plenum?

    987 Cayman and Boxster Chat
    Well, I painted and detailed my BASE 2.9 engine and installed the HIP clear cover, and love it. Now I'm considering painting the intake plenum to match the caps (see below). When I take a look at it, it doesn't look toooo difficult but definitely not the type of job I want to get into and then...
  17. New E class

    Automotive Off Topic
    Went to the launch party. Maybe this is of interest. Also, the US will get an E class convertible again, and the C class vert will be limited to Europe according to the dealership. Interior is hugely improved. Those terrible seats are gone. If you pay for leather you actually get really cool...

    987 Cayman and Boxster Modifications
    Hey guys This isn't my car in the picture mine is silver... I used this cause the car bumper i edited in was white to make it more smooth transition looking. Anyways could y'all let me know what y'all think? I want to give the front bumper a more sporty look compared to what it has and give it...
  19. Be thankful the 718 doesn't look like this!

    Automotive Off Topic
    Car and Driver I would rather walk or ride my bicycle than drive this hideous thing. Looks like the front end was dipped in coal tar and dried in the sun. The rear was randomly melted into some 'organic'-looking shapes. And then lights were stuck into various orifices to complete the look. How...
