  1. FRIEND functionality

    Community Help
    A search on the forum located for me a topic on how to send a "friend' request or to accept or decline one. But what, exactly, does the "friend" feature DO? What does that accomplish better than me sending someone a PM or them sending me one? Jokes posting "Apparently Larry does not have a lot...
  2. Has anyone used Plasti-dip on engine vents?

    987 Cayman and Boxster Chat
    I can get some engine vents for both driver and passenger side of my 987, primed, ready to paint. I just wanted to know if anyone, instead of painting them, has used Plasti-dip paint on primed parts? My concern is that I know one vent really doesn't do a whole lot but the other one may get hot...

  4. can a large Monster Energy coffee drink cause Aspergers Syndrome?

    General Off-Topic
    ...and more to the point, can alcohol cure it? Last night was my "Monday", and in spite of my best efforts, I went to work on only two hours of sleep. For reasons that mystify me, and in spite of my seniority, I not only didn't get my preferred beat, I was assigned to a beat downtown that I...

    Automotive Off Topic
    Given all the 718 sound fuzz I always wanted to know what you folks consider to be a great sounding car. I made two threads. This one is for flat-6 engines - everything else I would like you to post over in the other thread...

    About ready to pull the trigger and buy a 2014 Boxster. Similar spec'd cars, one at dealer, one from PCA member. Any benefit to buying through the dealer as opposed to a private party? Thanks for the help.

    General Off-Topic
    You got a whine for the day? This is you place to put it. ------------- So today we went to one of those family restaurant parks. You know these places - they are all over America. There were multiple choices. We went to the first one with only a few people seated, went to the receptionist...
  8. SUV Dilemma

    Automotive Off Topic
    NISSAN PATROL 24 hours ago I was determined to pass by Nissan's dealer next week and pick up a Patrol. After all it's as reliable, as hardcore, as trouble-free and as cheap-to-maintain as my ex-Land Cruiser. And priced at 60k USD. There's nothing else currently in the market with such price to...

  11. Has anyone installed Fabspeed headers on a 2.7?

    981 Cayman and Boxster Modifications
    Anyone tried Fabspeed headers on a base 2.7 retaining the stock exhaust? Not interested in trying another performance exhaust because I'm convinced they all drone - of course with the exception of PSE. You may recall my experience with this one... Quite honestly, the stock exhaust on the...
  12. Has anyone actually USED a Porsche umbrella?

    General Off-Topic
    My wife has a busted umbrella and needs a new one. I now also have a busted umbrella and need a new one. I might be ably to McGuyver mine back together but probably not. I don't buy cheap $5 umbrellas. They both probably cost $20 or so and I've had mine at least a couple years. So here's...

    Automotive Off Topic
    I wanted to alert members to something I found very unsettling! I recently received an email from Autoweek (owned by Crain Communications) that was requesting I buy raffle tickets for something known as the National Human Society. Raffle tickets are $100 each, supposedly they only sell 2999...

  17. "Night Moves", or "All Summer Long"?

    General Off-Topic
    Although my age places me in between Robert C. Seger and Robert J. Ritchie, and although I like both songs, "Night Moves" is the one that I find most compelling. Ironically, Seger was only 31 when "Night Moves" was released. They story sounds like that of a much older man. I'm 53, and I still...

  19. Brand new GT4, well optioned, $89,000 (really)

    981 Cayman GT4 Chat
    I was shocked to see my local dealer has a couple of GT4s and a Spyder in "inventory" (which may mean they haven't yet arrived). The price for the one I like: $118,760 (Can.)...or $89,059 U.S at today's exchange rate. Why aren't Americans all over this? Yes, there would be 2% duty on top of...
  20. The People vs OJ (AKA now I KNOW I am old)

    General Off-Topic
    Currently being shown as an ancient history lesson on FX as a ten part series. Watching that and remembering it live - NOT the same thing as watching a dramatization on TV. This lets you know how old you are when you hear others talking about it as Ancient History, something lost in the annals...
