I’ve owned mine for a decade and have spent around $2k total in that time, not per year.

No, of course not for the script. You’d want that up top.
USB ports on top wouldn't work, though, due to hanging cords. You’d want it flipped for that.
That was my point.

You might want to learn.

Avoid buying from sellers that claim uploading pictures is too confusing and “space-agey”, and therefore must send them via “personal correspondence”.

Your immobilizer is faulty. The issue will be (at least partly) in the onboard relays and no amount of alcohol or heat will fix that.

That bezel has a huge top.
I would flip it so it’s on the bottom and install some flush mount USB ports or something...maybe keep it upright and add Boxster or Porsche script?

Mine is off 99% of the time (brightness is adjustable).

Itís technically illegal to drive with it on, anyway.

Well, my point was that if you relocate the front trunk emergency release, you’ll always have access to the battery.

I do like having backups, though. There’s a distribution block in the passenger...

That’s not a fuse. It’s a power distribution block.
Also, if you can open the top to get to the top of the engine, then you have enough power to pop the frunk. ;)

Come on, Ger!
Relocate your emergency frunk release (forget the charging through the cig port) so you can always access the battery, and keep vital stuff (like wheel keys) in the passenger cabin.

This only works one of two ways, Fred; either have to say, “sorry, no longer in production”, or go into full on kit building mode.

I have a backlog of several hundred email inquiries for these. :D

There seems to be no rhyme or reason for the silver piece, though I do see them more on 996 models.

Porsche Presents

My teenage son noticed that my front rotors needed to be replaced when he helped me change the pads last month, so he had these waiting for me under the tree.

You probably have a moth or other flying insect trapped in the cabin.
Seriously.

Try covering the IR sensors with thick tape and see if the problem goes away. If it does, it was a bug.
