    I acquired this suspension from a local parts sale. I do not know actual history but I am told it has 40k miles on it. It was on a non-PASM 987.1 Cayman S and was removed to install an aftermarket suspension. Individual corner locations are labeled on each shock/strut. $400 shipped via paypal OBO

    I'm curious what you guys think. How do you evaluate Porsche's recommended service recommendations when given as miles vs. time? I'm sure they're given as very conservative suggestions (requirements?), but some of them don't make much sense. Some I understand- like bleeding the braking...

    I have been though two set of Goodyear F1 assymetrics with almost identical results. On a 2016 981 Cayman GTS, driving spirited 75 percent of time on very open and winding roads using the full capability of car. Rear tires grip phenomenal from 0-3k miles, then go neutral from 3k-5 and drop off...

    Just picked up my dream Cayman on Father's day. It's a 2006 S with only 16,500 miles. Options are Bi-Xenon, heated seats, 19" Carrera S wheels, Sport Chrono and Bose. I've done a lot of reading on here already and drove 3 other (2 S and 1 base) Caymans before pulling the trigger. I know ultra...

    I was at COTA this weekend for a DE and it was HOT! 95-100 degF. COTA has a lot of long WOT straights. I noticed with WOT on the long straights, my oil pressure was hitting 70-71psi. Oil temps were holding in mid 260's to mid 270's, but that pressure is in the high side red and had me...

    So, I know there is a dedicated 986 forum, but it's all but dormant, so I thought I would post here as MANY (including me) here have been 986 owners. Now, I only had my 986 for the first 36k miles and never a bit of mechanical trouble so I'm looking to you guys to give me some things to...

    Hey guys, I'm coming upon a couple leftover 2017 718s which are 20% off MSRP. build dates in late 2016 and with less than a 100 miles on them. Does anyone have any experience buying a car like this which has sat for more than a year with minimal miles. Any special concerns? There are other...

    I was at Thunderhill (5m) yesterday (great day) and a GT4 driver mentioned he swaps his RE-71R's to get a few more track events out of them. Neither of us use the tires for DD but its at least 300 miles round trip to get to either TH or BW so the miles add up anyway. My BS 19" 71R's costs a...
  10. 911 Complaints
    Sorry to write so much about a Bimmer, but this has to do with my unwillingness to make my 997.2 C2 into a daily driver... I own a 2011 911, base model coupe and a 3335i of the same year model, and I am contemplating consolidating them into a brand new M3. The Porsche currently has 31k miles...

    I have for a few thousand miles a tune from a reputable tuner. Well today I wanted to renew emissions and oxygen sensor and catalytic converter are “not ready”, no pass..... 2 attempts, 2nd after driving 40 miles since the 1st attempt was with a rather cold engine. I contacted the tuner already...

    Hello all, I am in a bit of a difficult situation and would greatly appreciate your help and advice. I bought a 2006 Cayman S in October of 2017. The car had 16,500 miles on it with full service history. The dealer I bought it from had performed a PPI and the car passed California Smog with no...

    I took my car to a well respected independent Porsche shop for an alignment and DE inspection. When I got home I noticed 57 more miles on the odometer. Now they did drive me the 6 miles to my office and it is about 11 miles to my house so let's call that 25. Is a 32 mile test drive needed after...

    2015 Cayman with 5/2015 in-service date. I bought the car 10/2017 CPO off lease @ 15,500 miles. Tech just told me that the 20k mile service was done 5/2017 @ 11,300 miles, which included oil change and brake flush. Interim service popped up on dash for 2/2018 which tech said would be the 3yr...
  15. 718 Chat
    Hi, I know there are several posts on the 718 run in... and how many miles you should put on it before driving it hard. What are your thoughts on the 718 GTS run in miles? The same as a standard 718 or 718 S? Thanks in advance for your help.

    So I've been looking at Boxsters for a few weeks and have narrowed down 2 cars that are in my price range. I have decided that I want to go with a 987 rather than a 986 for various reasons (interior and exterior styling, better IMS, more HP, etc). Out of the 2 cars I'm looking at, the biggest...

    We decided to visit our friends in St. George, southern Utah, over the weekend. A total of over 600 miles, left Friday, back today. According to the on board computer 30.6 mpg and over 80 in average speed. I’d say not bad! not sure if the Softronic tune made a difference in mileage but...

    This has probably been posted before, but I just have to say how amazed and pleased I am with the Michelin PS4S tires. Just had them installed on 20 inch HRE FF01 wheels a few weeks ago. Weather has been cold and somewhat snowy here, so haven't driven them more than 30 miles or so. After heavy...
