  1. Big Air for the Boxster Part 2 !

    Great loved it 👍 I warmed the rubber couplers for the plenum up in a bucket of warm water, made them stretch on know problem. Great work looking forward to part 3👍
  2. 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 😂
  3. Soft top care Boxster 987

    Hi there and welcome 👍 The Autoglm kit is a great place to start, as it comes with a special sponge that won't damage your roof. Also the water proof treatment is good as it seals the roof and also makes the roof slightly darker and helps disguise any fading a bit. I wouldn't recommend putting the sealer on until you have the roof as clean as you want it. I actually applied mine with a paint brush as the over spray is a pain and I didn't fancy masking the paint work up😁 All in all £25 well spent and if you try this first it won't damage anything. If it doesn't remove all the marks you have then you may need to try something stronger but your always better to start with the safer option first. My roof was quite green and required me to use a separate mould remover,as well as the Autoglm kit. My roof still isn't 100% perfect but its 100% better than it was 👍 Another good roof cleaner is Renovo, which is slightly stronger than the AG cleaner. It works out slightly more expensive and you would also need to find a soft top cleaning brush or a soft nail brush. If you post some pics i will have a look and try and help from there👍
  4. 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 ?
  5. 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 ?
  6. 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?
  7. 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 ?
  8. How To: Purchase a budget 986 Boxster

    Great post! Really enjoyed it and covers some very valid information for potential buyers ?
  9. 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 :)

      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 ?

  10. Hi Rag

    Jumped in my car again this morning and the lumpy almost cutting out tick over is back.

    I haven't had chance to have a look yet as I was heading out.

    Do you think I've still got an air leak on the airbox mod? Seems to play up when it's warm, as if there could be heat soak in the silicon elbows causing a bad seal.

    Ive used it all day last Sunday and several times in the week although Thursday night it felt a little unstable.

    I need to get to the bottom of this as I need a car that is useable.

    Any tips or ideas.....

    Thanks in advance
