  1. S Model Air condition

    987 Cayman and Boxster Chat
    This is my 3rd Porsche and all the cars have had the same poor air con issue where the gas has leaked. In each case the actual leak has been extremely hard to find having passed and held a pressure test. The cars just end up getting re-gased once a year. It seems the only way to fix this issue...
  2. Great classic 911 video from Goodwood

    911 Competition
    I am more typically looking at the amazingly close A35 and Spridget races from Goodwood. But I just happened to notice this one with two early 911s and it's pretty good.
  3. Macan S Sunroof?

    Cayenne and Macan Configurations
    Do all Macan S models come with a sun roof? I would rather not have one is why I'm asking.
  4. Cayman S Steering Wheel Swap Help

    987 Cayman and Boxster Electronics
    Hey everyone, relatively new to the forum so I'm still getting to grips with the search. I have a 987.1 with a multi function wheel, which I hate the styling of and never use the MF so I've bought a Sport Design one. I know I need a new wiring harness but do I need a different airbag ring as...
  5. Cayman GTS rear wheel

    Porsche Tires & Wheels
    I think this is allowed, I have one wheel for sale, listed on PANJO, came off my 2016 CGTS, 9 1/2 X 20 silver finish, w/o TPMS sensor or wheel center. I managed to hit a curb with it and replaced the wheel, but then I found a place that totally refinished wheels and had this one done, it is...
  6. Question Half Shaft Bolt Stripped - Need Help

    987 Cayman and Boxster Chat
    This weekend, I installed ST Suspension / KW V1 coilovers on my 987.2. The install itself took a while but went well, sans for stripping one of the 8mm hex bolts that holds my passenger-side half shaft into the transmission. Do you guys have any recommendations on getting this bolt out? Omw...
  7. Can you “fix” OZ wheels?

    Porsche Tires & Wheels
    So I bought wheels off Panjo...nice 20” OZ Ultraleggeras. I got them on my Cayman and went for a drive only to realize something didn’t feel right. Took it into my tire shop and sure enough, the rear tires had broken steel belts probably caused by the previous owner hitting one of those spots...
  8. Anyone want to sell a third radiator kit?

    981 Cayman and Boxster Competition
    I'm going to need to pick up a third rad kit for my 981 before next track season (saw 270F oil temps and PDK shifted slowly at end of session in July), but I'd be interested in picking up a used one if someone is selling their car or getting out of the track game. Anyone want to part with one...
  9. i have both kits, which option would you go with. v8 or v6 swap?

    Pistol Petes Boxster Board
    I was going to swap in a v8 into my boxter so I contacted someone and had a complete kit made up to bolt a chevy v8(pre ls1) to a boxster S manual trans. I had the adaptor plate, flywheel, starter, clutch kit(spec stage 3), and all the hardware made up to bolt them together.... then a started...

  11. Cayman S What's the little sheet metal screw you take out when getting to both panels?

    987 Cayman and Boxster Service and Tech
    Hi all, First post. New owner of a 987 Cayman S, 2010, 59K, $33K plus tax and license. My next best car was a BRZ which is super fun but sort of like a go cart in comparison. So my belt tensioner bolt, the 60mm one that it revolves around, sheared off. I'm pretty handy so I got in there and...
  12. 718 GTS: Is PDLS standard?

    718 Chat
    Going over my configuration one last time, I noticed in the "Standard Equipment" listing that the GTS comes with the following: Bi-Xenon™ headlights in black with integrated LED daytime running lights No mention of PDLS, but it's listed as a $1500 option. So am I right in assuming that PDLS...
  13. Paint meter for detecting re-sprayed panels

    Porsche Care and Detailing
    Hi everyone, I'm buying a used car and thought it may be a good idea to use a paint meter to check the panels. I don't own one, so I looked around and found this one on Amazon: Would anyone have any comments on that paint meter? I guess the main thing I...
  14. Underdrive Pulleys

    987 Cayman and Boxster Modifications
    How many of you have installed one? I've read that some (maybe all?) of the pulleys available for the 987.1 requires that one shaves off a small nub on the engine block (it's a raised protrusion that is hollow and has a notch for a TDC lock)... is this the case with all of the upgraded...
  15. Bose Unit on 981 Boxster S is Embarrassing. Upgrade simplified.

    981 Cayman and Boxster Electronics
    Just got a used sweet 2014 981 BS. Love the car with a couple of exceptions. One of them is the Bose System. Probably the worst and cheapest crap system ever put into a 80k car. Wow, thought my 987.1 BS's Bose sytem was crap, yet this one might even be worse. Not sure why Porsche can't get...
  16. Replace OEM exhaust tip

    981 Chat
    I really don't like the "all black" look on my 981 from the rear....especially that black exhaust tip. I think Dark Beauty is screaming "I need some chrome". Has anyone considered these : Alternately, the single pipe in chrome would also be...
  17. One Less Spyder?

    981 Boxster Spyder Chat Cars and Coffee, show off? "Exhibition of Speed" (per a LEO).
  18. NON-Whine for the Day

    General Off-Topic
    I started the Whine for the Day thread after a miserable experience at a family chain restaurant, everything from burnt food to a server who was just pathetic. Going back there a year later, the same restaurant completely turned around and I noted that. But life isn't full of whines. No...
  19. replacing the inside mirror

    981 Cayman and Boxster Modifications
    I bought a replacement mirror from Suncoast for my CGTS, its bigger than the standard one which has always bothered me b/c of the way it tapers-seems kind of wimpy. Anyway, I started removing the existing one today and got the plastic two piece cover off, twisted the mirror to release the...
  20. In need of one 9.5J x 20" Carrera S wheel

    Porsche Tires & Wheels
    I damaged the RR wheel on my '16 GTS yesterday, and quotes for a new one approach $2000 from the dealers I've inquired with so far. I find 8" front wheels on eBay for around $700-1000 but so far no rears show up. Anybody have one or a line on one. I naturally want one w/o road rash, TPMS and...
