  10. Adding CarPlay

    718 Chat
    Now that CarPlay supports Waze, I'm interested in adding it to my 2018 Boxster GTS (no NAV or Connect). It looks like it's possible from the Suncoast site. I spoke to the Boston area dealer I purchased the car from and they said they won't do it. Has anyone here done this? Any recommendation on...

  14. Curb Rash - Described by SA as Minor??

    Porsche Tires & Wheels

  20. Installed Sould Performance Products Full competition exhaust last weekend

    987 Cayman and Boxster Modifications
    I have been looking at exhaust options to replace my stock exhaust with 70K miles on it. CEL light kept coming on and I just didn't like the sound of it at low RPM. Decided on the Soul exhaust package after a lot of research on youtube! They are also about 20 minutes north of where I work...
