  1. 981 Cayman GT4 Chat
    Ok I'm starting to get enough questions of "Hey are you trading your existing GT4 in on a new one?" that I thought I would pose the question to all of you about what would make the new 718 GT4 a success or failure. While I am not planning to trade or buy one, here are some thoughts from my...

    I've spent the last several days doing a ton of research on Porsche and the 911 and Cayman. After a bunch of test drives, I've decided on a CPO 2017 or 2018 Cayman or Cayman S. (If you're interested in the backstory, it's detailed in this monster thread here...

    Hello, been lurking around here a bit reading up on common issues and what not, but I pulled the trigger on a 2014 Boxster S with Sport Chrono, Premium, Power sport and 20" Carrera wheels. I used to have a 2002 Boxster S that I drove for till it was about 100K (bought it with 30K) miles in my 5...
  4. 981 Cayman and Boxster Problems and Complaints
    So my PCM stopped connecting with my iPhone 8 via bluetooth. I disconnected the phone, forgot the PCM and reconnected. Problem persisted!:crazy: I then noticed my Nav looked odd and it started freezing? My PCM then rebooted itself which then continued at about 8 - 10 minute intervals. I took the...
  5. Porsche Care and Detailing
    I have read posts on restoring headlights but I'm trying to keep headlights pristine. A friend uses Turtle Wax Polish and then waxes the headlights to protect them. Are there any other suggestions?

    I have a 2006 Cayman S. Lately I have noticed a change in the way it starts up. When I first start it in the morning, it goes to about 1000-1200rpm then quickly goes up to about 2000rpm. It stays there for a few seconds, then over about a 5-10 second period it slowly goes back down to...
  7. 955-957 Cayenne 2003-2010 - 1st Generation
    Hi. I have a 2009 GTS. PCM is ver 3.0 (I think). CD playback is fine except that with 95% of them the PCM is not displaying the track names, only "Track 1, Track 2," etc. etc. Very annoying. Now if I rip the CD to a PC and then copy files to a MP3 player and run that through the USB source on...
  8. 981 Cayman and Boxster Problems and Complaints
    I was on a road trip recently cruising at around 80 when I noticed the oil temp at 228 then soon up to 232. Normally it's in the 200 to 210 range so I was getting more than concerned that there was maybe an oil cooler failure. I then noticed that I had not put the car in Sport Plus like I always...

    I was whipping around the hills and oddly I couldn't easily move my clutch heel around. Turns out I had gum on the back of my heel, and it had spread around and embedded into the floor mat. It was very unpleasant to have that spot sticky, so I figured I'd be buying a new mat soon. But I got...
  11. 987 Cayman and Boxster Modifications
    Hello, I have added gt3 lower control arms at all 4 corners with solid mono balls and they were great until I took my car through and automated car wash and since then they squeak like crazy. What is the best lubricant to stop the squeaking and to keep it stopped for a long time. Thanks

    I recently did a full brake fluid flush and put a new OEM brake pads. I did this on numbers of other cars for years, so not new to it. What new is I used a MOTIVE pressure bleeder for the first time https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B0002KM5L0/ref=oh_aui_search_detailpage?ie=UTF8&psc=1 I did...

  14. 981 Cayman and Boxster Problems and Complaints
    Last night when I started my 2011 Cayman the navigation screen came on as it always dd. I pressed confirmed and the screen when blank with just an arrow pointing in the upper right corner. Then it said navigation not connected. So I shut off the engine and started it again but this time the...
  15. 981 Cayman and Boxster Problems and Complaints
    Out yesterday, I'd been driving spiritedly for maybe 45min/1hr. Lovely drive, great roads, little traffic. Not all-out 10/10ths, but properly enjoying the car (981C Base). I got to part of my route where the road narrowed, and I backed off to a more relaxed pace. It was then I noticed under...

    Spent Friday exploring new roads on the NC/TN boarder. Good roads, super views, and not much traffic - so generally having a great time. Then as I start coming to a stop sign, I begin to hear and faintly feel this strange grinding and slight vibration coming from the passenger-side rear...
