Mine is a bit grayish when dry.. not awful. I was thinking of removing it and giving it a shot of bumper-black paint. It seems to stick to cleaned plastic quite well, and is tough pain. I'm still thinking about it. I may remove it tomorrow - I want to arrange the GPS antenna under it that I added and maybe move the Sirius antenna under it (it's currently in a corner of the dash..) It looks like 2 nuts, 1 torx screw and remove the wiper arms and off it comes..

deilenberger, am trying out some meguiars engine dressing liquid at the moment. It had pretty good effect in the engine bay of my previous ride and resistant to heat...had some lying around the house, applied it with a small sponge - lets see how it turns out. probably might work with tyre black, plasti dip too...

She's in the workshop today and tomorrow getting a regular oil and filter change. She will also be getting new Brembo front brake rotors and pads, new rear strut mounts, bump stops, bellow etc, Cayman R springs going on for a slight 20mm drop and Goodridge Steel braided lines all round.

Ceramic coating refresh next week.

New air filter in the Cayman today. I can not help but question the logic in putting the filter in a hole that it does not fit through. Have to force the old one out and force the new one in. German engineering at its finest. If I didnt like driving this car so much Id unload it in a heartbeat.

While it's a pain to install the engine air filter, it does fit without forcing it through the access hole. The 981 design is a huge improvement over the 987.

I have a 987. I drove Corvettes for 30+ years. Everything was easier on them. I know that Porsche wants us to get dealer service and that is the reason. At least the oil change is easy.

New Bosch Super spark plugs. Whatever the Super means I dont know. Anyway, not a terrible job. $33 for plugs on the internet. Way better than paying the dealer $300.

Make a huge difference, now I know why I was afraid of adding more nvh when thinking about update parts.
There were just so much. ?
