  1. Cruise & new key

    Finally made it up to Revolution using The Independant Porsche Enthusiasts Club Northern meet at The Half Moon Collingham on Sunday (around 60 car turn out then I spent the afternoon at Harewood hill climb) as an excuse to be there so big thumbs up/thanks to the team at Revolution for sorting a new key at a really good price & fitting the cruise/onboard computer too my Boxster on Monday. Very impressed with how they just got on with the job even when they hit a few snags with wiring in my car. The cruise made the long jaunt down the M1 & its enforced 60 mph limit a pleasure rather than a grind so well worth the money
  2. How To: Bring your Dash Speakers up to spec

    I believe the 987 is set up with 3 tweeters in the dash (not sure if the center one is a tweeter?) then a midrange & sub in the doors (bottom speaker is the sub). I think Bose are 2 ohm as opposed to every other manufacturer of speakers in the world who use 4 ohms....
  3. How To: Bring your Dash Speakers up to spec

    Yes you can do them all its certainly worth upgrading the door speakers too & I spent a day redesigning my door sub enclosures to squeeze a 17 cm speaker in there (original useless sub is 13cm). All running of a Sony head unit as I ditched the amp & all my mods are unseen so everything still looks like it left the factory.
  4. Drainage holes

    & if you haven't got one already order your self a trombone or hydrytion pack cleaning brush (long flexible spring thing with a brush either end).

  8. How to: Fog lights as DRL: the Uktinpol 2 hack

    No its for 987s the 986 hasn't got the "home" position on the headlight switch & with the fogs being in the headlights on 986s i am not sure it will look right (photos anyone?). Looks awesome on the 987 though having done it to mates car. 986 Foglight Mod I havent done any research on the above but apparently running a wire from the foglight fuse to the fog light relay pin 56 has the desired effect on a 986.
  9. How to: 986 DIY Brake disks, pads and fluid

    You will need a 10mm allen/hex key/socket to remove the caliper bolts & a punch to drive out the pin that holds the pads in if you havent got those on your list already. HTH
  10. How to: Spot and clear 987 drain Holes

    A trombone cleaner or Hydration Pack Cleaner is the perfect tool for cleaning the drain holes & won't damage them
