    Hey everyone! I hope everyone's doing OK and enjoying their Porsche experience :) I know I am! My 987.1 Cayman S and I recently moved to Raleigh, NC from Hampton Roads, VA and now, I don't have anywhere to change my oil! I used to do it myself at the DIY garage in VA Beach, but there doesn't...

    This is a DIY on how to replace the fluids in the 981 Boxster/Cayman PDK transmission without using the PIWIS fill mode. Difficulty level: Similar to an engine oil change. Before I start, I can confirm that the procedure I’ve put below works. I’ve compared the fill level I’ve achieved using...

    I recently bought a 2007 Cayman S. Had a PPI done by an indie Porsche shop so I had an informed decision on the price I was willing to pay.

    ok. I need some help. My Cayman has 20" summer tires that seem to "grab" my lightweight rhino ramps (off of my concrete garage floor) and suck them under the car. Even when I very slowly and carefully back on to them I can have a problem. 1. What am I doing wrong? 2. Is there a way to keep them...

    Forum Experts, I leased my first 981 exactly 1 year ago and now the car's system says it's time for an oil change and I've driven it for around 3,200 miles only. Should I bother and change the oil? Thanks, TW

    I'm up here is Alaska and water condensation is so problematic that we change natural oils more frequently because water tends to build up displacing oil and making it appear there is more oil in the crank case than there is. Problem is I'm cheap and part of the rationale in buying this beast...
