  2. Rennline Aluminum Shift Knob

    Planet-9 Classifieds
    Bought this just a few months ago, new condition. Asking $75.00 including shipping Item Number: I14.1 Unlike most shift knobs on the market, Rennline’s are far from “universal”. Universal usually means that it will nearly fit some applications and will not fit the rest. All Rennline shift...
  3. Short(ish) shift kit with a 20 minute install

    718 Chat
    (title may be a bit misleading as this is not a proper short shift kit, but is a similar mod that is much simpler to install...) I wanted a shorter shift throw on my 718 BS shifter, especially after installing the same thing on my MT Mk7 GTI. The OEM shift knobs on both the Porsche and the GTI...

  7. Suggestions on Cayman Shift Knob Replacement

    987 Cayman and Boxster Modifications
    I have a 2007 Base Cayman with automatic. My shift knob is showing its age. I am upgrading the steering wheel to a flat bottom wheel and I would also like to upgrade the look of the automatic shift knob. Can you guys recommend a nice replacement knob that will be an upgrade aesthetically. I...
  8. Cayman PDK Question

    987 Cayman and Boxster Problems and Complaints
    I’ve been searching but can’t quite seem to find a thread that addresses my question: I’m not really sure how to describe this exactly, but is it normal for a PDK transmission to shift slowly at very slow speeds? When I slow down but don’t fully stop and then slowly accelerate, it seems like...
  9. Stiff Gear Shifting

    987 Cayman and Boxster Chat
    Hi Guys I have a 987.2 Cayman S with OEM Short shift and numeric cables installed and my shift lever is very hard to push and pull. I tried the shifter in a 981 the other day and it almost takes no effort at all. Also tried a few other 987's and mine takes a lot more effort to move the stick...
  10. Gear shift slack?

    987 Cayman and Boxster Chat
    The amount of slack seems excessive. Only sideways when in gear and the selection is firm and quite positive. Not sure if this is a short shift or what is expected for a 100K miler! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tSTB0EL_-MU
  11. Short Shift Kit on 718

    718 Chat
    718 Peeps -- I installed the Porsche OEM Short Shift Kit (https://www.suncoastparts.com/product/PK9X1SSU.html) a few weeks ago. It's pretty awesome, definitely worth the $250. Thought I'd provide a quick report: I DIY'd the install and it was drama free. Anyone with patience and a few tools...
  12. Boxster Function First Shift Right Solution + Shifter Cable Ends

    987 Cayman and Boxster Modifications
    Back in the fall, I was an early adopter and replaced my shifter cable ends with the Aluminum and Delrin cable ends from Function First. This modification removed all of the softness and vagueness of the factory cable ends. It was a real tactile difference that was immediately noticeable. Having...
  13. Boxster Restoring 5-speed shift pattern on knob

    987 Cayman and Boxster Problems and Complaints
    Guys... As trivial as it sounds, the 5-speed shift pattern on my 2006 Boxster base shift knob has faded and I would like to restore it. The car is in very good condition inside and out. One of the only signs of age/wear is the faded shift pattern on the shifter but I'm having difficulty with the...

    987 Cayman and Boxster Chat
    Just recently had my steering wheel, handbrake and shifter re-trimmed in alcantara which all looks great.

  17. Tach Accuracy

    981 Chat
    I have heard that there is some error associated with the Tach needle. Just wondering if anyone knows what the normal range is for it to be off. I have noticed that my gear shift assist red light comes on rather late with respect to the needle indication. I do not know this for a fact but would...
