My Boxster has been sitting for a few days - and apparently the car disables the remote function to save battery - however my key does not work to manually open the door.

Is there anyway to...

How do I silence squeaking dash trim?

The plastic trim panel ahead of the passenger speaker makes a creaking sound, very annoying, sometimes it creaks while driving, other times not. Driver's side is quiet.

Any ideas how to quiet it...

I've been around the block with british cars, you don't even want to go there, trust me.



Any 11+ year old car is going to require attention and a repair budget. I don't doubt this car has...

Don't let these guys put you off. The Boxster is probably one of the most reliable Porsches you can own. True sitting is never good for a car, but after a routine change of fluids, perhaps plugs and...

Far as I know, my 99 is still running the original water pump @ 97k. Sounds like I should probably replace it to be safe.

99 is a great year. Probably the most reliable 986 you can get.

Sure the 2.7 is faster and smoother, but the IMS becomes a genuine worry. The 2.5 is simply put, one of the best sounding motors...

Personally for me, stock is always best. When it comes to resale, most buyers will walk away when they see non factory "improvements". Very few look right or improve the aesthetics of the car. IMO of...

I had a clean 85 635csi 5spd for several years. Honestly it was a great driving car, but a real money pit. Fastest rusting car I've ever seen. After 3 years of ownership the climate controls were...

Thank you.

Honestly not sure. It's a weird market, 80's poster cars are hot, and dealers are testing the waters with pristine 944 turbos in the 20-40k range. Historically the nicest 944 NA's have...

Sell 944 for a Boxster?

So I've got quite the quandary on my hands here guys.

Back in 2013 I purchased a 2.5 Boxster, had all the critical service updates, extremely well sorted, and I absolutely loved the car. Still...

Can't believe all the people who drive around above 3k. Waste of gas and excess wear and tear on the motor.
