Hi all,
I just purchased a (stunning) Boxster Spyder. Unfortunately I do not have any "nice" pic, except this.



I have lurked the forum but I would like to make sure I got everything right.

Bluetooth streaming
Is still the combo Y Porsche cable + ViseeO Tune2air WMA1000 the most effective option?

Water under LHD front passenger side
The liquid is clear, no smell, no taste, not oily, not brake fluid. I keep the aircon in "auto" all the time. Is that water coming from the aircon? Is there in any thread a clear picture of where the drain hose is? I understood that should be the case

Water drains in "sunshade" area
I already used a air pistol but I was not sure if I need to make some more "intrusive" cleaning. They seems to drain water decently.

Sport button
I have seen that Porsche offers, via tequipment, the possibility to install this aftermarket.
Is that really worth on a PDK car? I am not interested at the "launch control" option.

Side vents frame
Mine are pretty ruined (yes, he car was used on the track). I was wondering if there were better place to purchase them, in Europe, than from the usual Porsche dealer

Speed cameras
Is there any way to add them into the PCM 3.0? I understood that the system update and map update can only be done at dealer's place (always talking in EU)

Old good user manual in PDF and sunshade leaflet
a. I have found this nice website with the user manual on line, but is there any option to have it offline in a PDF? Table of Contents | 2009-2012 Boxster Manual | Porsche iManuals
b. Originally the car was coming with a small leaflet on how to operate the sunshade. Not that is complex, but I'd have liked to have it. Does anybody of you knows the PET code for that?

For sure other tons of questions will pop up to my mind but for now if anybody can help me on one or more specific points, it would be great.
Many thanks

I had water under the front passenger side carpet in my last 911, and discovered it was coming from a leaking windshield gasket...previous owner had tried to patch it (with assistance from dealer) but the permanent fix was a new windshield.

General consensus is that the Sport Chrono add-on (without the clock/wart) is worthwhile in a PDK car, but less so in a 6-speed. You'll get Sport and Sport+ modes, as well as revised throttle mapping, increased slip angles with PSM and launch control (that I have used once on our PDK Cayman S). Big bonus for many doing the post-build upgrade is that you DON'T get the clock/wart, which is cool for 10 minutes, then useless for the rest of the car's life.

First of all, thanks for the anwer.
I do not think it's a windshield leak since it was doing it in a sunny (but not warm) day, and in the previous days there was no rain whatsoever.
Regarding the sport, uhm... it's tempting since mine is PDK.

The 2010 Boxster Owner's Manual is in the "Files" section.

Congrats on your new Spyder. I have the same car but with a manual transmission. Are you saying that you bought the car without the canvas roof?
My bad English :)
No, I meant that in the PDF user manual linked in the post above there is no reference to the specific section on how to mount the sunshade (or canvar roof).
If you have still have all papers, would you mind -when you have time- to check if on the plastic leaflet for the canvas roof, is there any porsche reference ID in order to be able to order it it from the dealer? I would like to buy it just because I like to have the full papers.

Ah I see. To be honest, I didn't even know there were specific instructions for the roof. I will check my documents. I learnt how to put up and take down the roof by the former owner of my vehicle and also by watching the how-to on youtube: https://www.youtube.com/results?search_query=Porsche+boxster+spyder+987+roof

Yes, I mean it took 4 min to my wife and myself to do it after having seen once a youtube video, so it's pretty straightforward. I guess that after two weeks in spring it can be done in 1-2 mintues while looking around.
As said, I just wanted to have all papers. It's like the
