Cheapest Genuine Porsche Part Purchase Ever!

When I installed my Ben006 ball bearing short shifter, I lost one of the little metal clips that hold the shift boot and console side padding on. Being more than a little OCD, I wanted to replace it. One of the local Porsche dealers had 2 in stock so I bought both, $1.00 including tax!

PS, the part number is 999-507-476-01 should you need them.

I only paid $0.19 for the OEM clips for my center radiator trim!

Hey, I go to that dealer too! Those clips are cheap. I paid $20 bucks there for a 1L bottle of coolant not long ago. Not so cheap.

What color Boxster is yours?...I'll give you a wave when I see you on the road. LOL

If you really want OEM parts for cheap, that's the place to go.

Obviusely shipping won't make it resenebl in your case, but whenever I'm doing a project on my cars, I accumulate my parts in a list, and order them all together.
Best prices in the US for OEM parts.
Just a tip I got from JFP when I was a novis

Yep, I shop around for parts too, I was running a bunch of errands that took me past the dealer so I splurged instead of waiting for my next online order!

I have found Circle Porsche to be the lowest cost and service is excellent.
