New Boxster owner - Questions on 3 things

Hi all,
I am a proud new owner of a triple black tiptronic 99 Porsche Boxster. Had a quick few quick Q's and I'm hoping someone from the forum can shed some light on.

1) I noticed that the lid from my center console tray in the rear has broken off (the one that requires a key to unlock).I'm having a heck of a time trying to figure out what part I actually need to replace... Is it the tray and lid only, or is it the lid? or is it the entire console?

2) Does anyone know whether or not a cigarrette lighter plug from a cayenne would fit my boxster? From the outside, it looks the same, but perhaps the fitting is different.

3) Anyone know where I could pick up some new lug nuts for the stock wheels. I noticed that all the existing nuts have some rust on it.

4) Anyone know of a place in San Francisco that cuold be able to replace my OEM convertible top canvas with a new one if I got the part for them, for a reasonable price?

Thank you all for reading and help!

congratulation you've enter the world of porsche ownership!
just on the nuts, I heard of a couple of people who derust their wheelnuts then spray them with varnish and refits them, i believe rust on wheel nuts is very common, specially the rear ones.

otherwise happy motoring
