Had to street park at my girlfriend's last night and came out this AM to a broken driver's side mirror and a scrape on front fender. The scrape looks buffable, but the mirror's hanging off. I...

The infamous wet passenger carpet

Hi all, I've got an '08 987 Boxster S with a familiar issue: water infiltrating the the passenger side carpet. I've dealt with this before on my old 986, which required me to repair the foam tray. I...

I recently reawakened my '08 Box S after a year of slumber while I was working abroad. After a bunch of maintenance, including air and cabin filters, brakes, oil, and a MAF/throttle cleaning, she...

Not sure if it's the same "emergency release" you mentioned, but I was able to open the "frunk" on my 200O 986 by pulling on the headlight, and getting at the cable behind it.

You've probably broken one of the plastic "cabriolet top pushrod" tips. They are very cheap and easy to fix, but if it broke once there is likely a problem with alignment and they will keep breaking...

I've owned a 986, 996, 987 Boxster, 987 Cayman, and a 991. All "S" models except the 996.

My take: The 987's are exponentially nicer inside than the older cars, and the 991/981s are even better,...

Hard to say, exactly, as the tires on 18s were conti DWS and Michelin PSS on the 19s, very different tire feel. Generally though, I've experienced a firmer ride on 19s.

The photo actually came out a bit dark, so I tweaked the curves a bit in lightroom before posting. It's Guards Red in daylight.

Why do you want to swap your 2.5 for a 2.7? The difference in power is pretty minor, but it will be a pain to get it working. I'd look for a Carrera's 3.4 -- much more power and an easier swap.
