  1. Frustrated by the weather!

    718 Chat
    Just taking the opportunity to vent. It seems like this has been the coldest (and now it's wet) first half of April in many years here in northern Illinois. Took my 911 TTS out of storage March 28, took delivery of my 718 BGTS April 5, and have had woefully little opportunity to enjoy them...

  3. Softronic installation progress

    981 Cayman and Boxster Modifications
    So I thought I do a little thread about the Softronic installation and impression. This will go over a few days and I will update accordingly. I took the opportunity to buy the software on sale over the holidays. Our car is a base Boxster, only "mod" are K&N air filters. We live in Utah, so we...
  4. Best excuse for a reckless driving ticket

    981 Cayman and Boxster Problems and Complaints
    90 in a 65. I'll lawyer up and let him decide the best defense, but I want to give him some ideas. How are these? "It was only the third time I'd driven a car with this kind of power and it just took off on me." "I'm an old fart with a perfect driving record for over a...

  6. Dealer wash ruined headlamp

    981 Chat
    I took my Cayman to the dealer to have a spare key programmed as well as the safety inspection, and asked for No wash please. When I returned they had just washed it to my internal dismay (its wrapped in Suntek Ultimate), at first glance it looked undamaged. When I got to my garage I took...
  7. Is it normal for cooling fan to stay on for 12 min after power off on Cayman R?

    987 Cayman and Boxster Chat
    Bought a 2012 Cayman R a month ago(love it). Has 30000km on it with only few DE days on it. Is PDK and just did IDP plenum and throttle body and Cargraphic sport headers. Only had 911's before and don't know Cayman's. Took out for drive 2 weeks ago and after a minute temp gauge spiked to...

  9. Replacing Center console trim piece

    718 Chat
    I got sick of being blinded by the aluminum trim piece in the center. I had the dealer order the $317 leather replacement one. Took all of 2 minutes to swap out. The trim piece pops out super easy.
  10. Windshield replaced under warranty

    981 Cayman and Boxster Problems and Complaints
    Back in February I noticed that my windshield gasket (for lack of a better term) had started to degrade, it was like it was melting. As it was still under warranty, I took it to the dealer. They took pictures, cleaned it up, and said to let them know if it got worse. It wasn't bad for a long...

  12. Another mountain run - Wolf Pen Gap and HWY 129

    981 Boxster Spyder Chat
    I took my Spyder up there with my brother and it was a life changing experience. I think this was the only time I experienced the car on the road in a manner where I was convinced the manual transmission was the better option than a PDK in this car. I really don't like manuals and I have...
  13. DIY: LWB Bolster Protectors from Exclusive Option Install

    981 DIY Discussion
    Although I received these a little while back I finally got around to installing my lightweight bucket seat (LWB) bolster protectors from Exclusive Option.

    981 Cayman and Boxster Modifications
    So, the car was due for the yearly service and my wife wanted for the longest time red calipers. Ok then, get parts and start working! It is her daily and since last year she put approx. 7,500 miles on her. I took it really easy and with lunch and other breaks it took a day, no problem. Let's...

    ...that had gone dormant when I got rid of my '04 Boxster Anniversary Edition in 2008. It was still available so I took it back.
  18. How my $5,000 PDK dealership repair turned into a $385 fix.

    987 Cayman and Boxster Problems and Complaints
    So, I purchased my 09 Cayman in February 2015. The car had averaged 4,000 miles a year and was in great shape with records. Inspection showed no issues so I passed on an extended warranty of questionable exclusions. However, after about 6 months of daily driving it started to jump abruptly...
  19. Favorite Croc photos

    General Off-Topic
    I went on a Panama Canal cruise in 2013 and took an incredible shore excursion where we were in a boat and the guide put the boat on a muddy shore and went out in ankle deep mud, attracted several crocs and fed them from less that a foot! I was on the rail of the tour boat, about eight feet...
