  1. 981 Cayman and Boxster Modifications
    I would like to know if anyone here knows what the exact changes are between the 981 and 718 series cars that evokes reviewers saying the 718 has better steering feel / road feel. I have a 2013 Boxster S with the sport steering wheel and love the car and have no complaints about the steering...

    Up for sale is an Alcantara Sport Steering Wheel with PDK paddles for 981 cars. This was used for a couple of days before I decided to go with something more extreme for my track Cayman, so it is essentially almost new. This would be a direct replacement for any PDK 981 owners who currently has...

    I so want to fit paddle shifters to my 2008 Cayman that has tiptronics. I see descriptions for PDK but not for Tiptronics. So my learned friends, can I install a PDK paddle wheel to my tip? Thanks in advance. Paul

    In the past month I picked up a new to me 2006 Boxster. The car is great, but at 6'4" I just fit comfortably. I could definitely use a little more clearance between my knees and the bottom of the steering wheel. I've read over 35 posts here and at other forums trying to find if there is a good...

    I am installing an aftermarket double din radio in my 2007 cayman non-bose. For those who have done this can you recommend a steering wheel control adapter that you have used. I ordered one from crutch field only to learn that it is not compatible with my vehicle and crutchfield is not aware of...

    Its a 2006 Cayman S with 100 000 KM I changed the inner tie rod and noticed the Dust bellow was wet on the underside. I took it off and there was a little FLUID in there. Not alot but enough that a few drips came from it... The other side has the same "wet" bellow on the underside but I never...

  12. 981 Cayman and Boxster Modifications
    I'm looking for recommendations on where to source an aftermarket steering wheel that is similar to the GT4 Clubsport OEM version. This will be paired with the Rothsport QR. I may even ditch the paddles since I rarely use them. Perhaps someone has already done this conversion. Suggestions? Thanks

    Hi All. I'm looking for some insight on the impact of alignment on steering effort. I took my 2014 Boxster S w/PASM (which I bought last August) into the dealer for an alignment. I wanted a more aggressive negative camber than stock to improve turn-in and handling. They did what I asked...

    After doing a search on this topic I learned a couple things: 1. There are a good number of 987 owners who feel their steering wheel is too thin. 2. The only fix for a perceived thin steering wheel is to buy a different one for huge money! I belong to the "steering wheel is too thin" camp. I...

    Hi everyone, I have a 2010 Cayman base, and I always feel it is heavier to turn steering wheel right than turning it left. I recently replaced all 4 tires (Michelin Pilot Super Sport) and did alignment. While that indeed makes the car go straighter (previously it pulls slightly to the right)...

    I had a very slight clunk in my steering when first turning the wheel to the left on my 2010 Cayman S. Tie rods and suspension all checked out so I was kind of stumped. Turns out it was a loose pinch bolt where the steering shaft u-joint attaches to the steering rack. The bolt can be...
