    Bluetooth for my 987

    You maybe lucky and just plugging into the cd changer may work. I can’t imagine you would need it programming but nothing would surprise me with Porsche electronics?

    Keeping pesky cats off your Boxster ?

    I was suffering a bit from a neighbours cat using my Boxster as an expensive cat basket. Never really had any issues before but I’ve heard people on here having problems. I looked at my options and they are quite limited and also I doubt half of them don’t work. But there’s hope!!!!! These work!!! Its only been 3 days but the neighbors cat hasn’t been anywhere near our house let alone the car. Its still early days but the cat would of normally be on my car by now ??

    Roof cleaning

    Try the Autoglym kit first and maybe a soft nail brush on the stubborn bits. If it is still a bit green try V-Fix mound and mildue remover, about £10 off eBay. The VFix really worked on some stubborn bits on my 987?

    Alloy and tyre cost

    Same question I would be asking just about a painted wheel. Would it fully refurbished or a cheeky paint blow in? Either way I think your £700 would go a long way covering any of these little mishaps that probably won’t happen ?

    Alloy and tyre cost

    Sounds expensive but worth while for the tyres, I would be enquiring what the alloy wheel part covered. Most of them just send a smart repairman who sprays silver paint on your diamond cut wheel and classes it as a repair. If it does cover you to have your wheel professionally recut then it’s definitely worth it. Im not sure what OPC insurance covers as they are all different but definitely worth asking exactly what your covered for ?

    Big Air for the Boxster!

    Hi there Great video, really enjoyed it and looking forward to the next one's! I did the plenum/throttle body upgrade on my 986s and was very pleased with the results ? I wasn't brave enough for the 987 airbox swap though ?

    Centre air vents on my 987

    As far as I know you have to brake the vents to remove them with out removing the dash. I ve read a how to before and it's not as scary as it sounds, the new vents simply snap back in. But I would definitely check they are broken before you resort to swapping them ?

    They've written my 986 off

    Loving the new car, Seal Grey is a great colour although I'm very biased ? The full leather trim is a real bonus too, glad you are all sorted again ?

    How to - Upgrade to a 996 Instrument Cluster

    Both covers off and a normal spanner! Awkward to get to but easy to remove and refit?

    How to - Upgrade to a 996 Instrument Cluster

    Hi there I removed top and cover behind the seat, if you look through from the car its shoulder height. I bought a crows foot spanner but never used it as a normal spanner easily loosened it up. As for the wiring I can't help I just used some black wire I had lying about. A bit of a fiddley job but not difficult and it's great seeing all the gauges working ?

  15. Hi 

    Thanks for contacting - you've seen my hunting posts, and you find more of my 2.7/S dilemma on the Newbie board. but enough about me ....

    Its not my first choice of colour, but the car does tick alot of boxes and looks great actually

    Before I dive deeper whats your guide price here, and to one that's very enthusiastic and will take alot of pride in ownership :) 

    Regards

      Hi there 

      Feel free to call or email me at

      alisongareth@hotmail.co.uk

      Ideally I'm after £7k or as close as but this is a great car.

      Ive seen cars that need a lot of work and not as cosmetically good as mine go for more.

      Also I would rather it went to someone who will appreciate my hard work ?
