    How to Replace a 986 Tension Rope

    It would appear it is the facelift cars that have clips on the top socket, to state the obvious.

    Adding additional miles

    Perhaps the policy is rubbish but Admiral have just quoted me £210 for 10,000 miles, for myself and wife as named driver. Have others vehicles insured with them. 2002 986.

    Limited mileage

    Welcome to the forum enjoy your car. Welove picturess on here btw. Insurance is supringsingly low for early Boxsters. My car is for pleasure only and I have averaged around 7000 miles a year. Its the cheapest car to insure on our family fleet of 4. Can't remember the figure now, but can look it up if that helps. Mines a 2002 2.7 self and wife to drive.
  11. Good to meet you again today Bob. Impressive PCGB facility, and was surprised how friendly most of them seemed to be. Not upto BoXa.net standards, but then who is!

    All the best.

    New Website - Your Thoughts Please

    Overall a nice clean modern look. But IIRC on the service prices page the navigation is not as intuitive as it might be. However I was comparing the prices between models which may be untypical use. Minor point really. Overall I am as impressed by Revolutions use of new media as by the sevice I have received at the workshops.

    rear wheel bearing

    Great stuff, hats off to you.
  14. I do have that visor Matt, passenger side but not Cocoa, yours if you can use it though, no problem. Would you like a pic. Cos there's a bit missing?

      Matt. You should be able to swap over the broken flap and keep your visor.
