I finally spent the time to clean the headlights on my car after 100k miles and 20 or so years of being on the road. The lights had 3m protection film on it when I bought it and it lasted another 4-5...

I wrap cars for a living...not going to say that $350 is absurd

but I would figure it would be closer to $200. Honestly it would take a competent installer about 20-30 minutes to do the whole job...the hardest part would be removing the hood badge. I would highly...

I have the same problem with my car....

The passenger side regulator was going bad and making noises so I replaced it. The window drops when the handle is pulled but not enough to always clear the roof trim as there is slack. I am going to...

Had similar issues years ago and it turned out to be a faulty MAS...I was sometimes getting 1128 and 1130 codes as well and the car ran rough when cold and would backfire sometimes.

Broken part on suspension...what is it?

I replaced the front shocks and accompanying hardware this past weekend without too much issue for the most part except on the drivers side. There is a plastic mounting bracket that I think was...

Would you mind sharing what it costs to have them powdercoated? PM is fine with me too. I have been wanting to ditch the plasti-dip on mine and have them painted gloss or satin black and am getting...

if the paint job is "iffy" with chips and/or flaking underneath, it will show under the wrap and likely remove the paint when the wrap is removed. Cost of materials for a boxster is about 300-400...

This concept is what made me fall in love with Porsche as a brand (and the slightly later 993 series). I still have the production teaser photo that was given to dealers leading up to the launch in...

A wrap will run you about ~$2000 on average...

you might get it a bit cheaper since the boxster is so small and relatively simple as far as surface curves. Standard colors without metallic affects and texture are a bit cheaper than some of the...

The vibration you feel is almost certainly the motor mount

failing. Mine failed around 60-65k miles and now I have 98k on the car and it is needing replacing again. I have noticed that instead of having to buy the entire motor mount like I originally did,...

Replaced window regulator...some issues remain.

My passenger side window regulator started to get slow and you could tell the window regulator was starting to fail so I replaced it a few weeks ago. I had the car sitting outside this week when a...

I tried it and had no luck as well

I would agree with most of what FauxDiablo says....

PW...you obviously have some issues with rebranding products
