I finally found someone willing to assume my SLK lease and traded in the 987 S this weekend on a Mercedes SL. The Boxster and the SL are both great automobiles, although obviously different, but...

There are no airbag sensors in that area. An airbag sensor is generally an accelerometer which responds to rapid deceleration and sends a signal to fire the airbag and is part of the airbag unit.

If you put the amber turn-markers under your pillow before you go to sleep, when you wake up, the Euro-spec Fairy will have replaced them with the clear markers.

Assuming you've been a good boy.

Are you sure that replacing the springs on a PASM suspension car (particularly one that's leased) is a good idea? PASM cars are already lowered 10 mm relative to other 987s and the active damping...

Your plan sounds good to me. I...

Not unheard of... Eslai needed new brakes all around at his 20K interval on his 05 S, if you remember his post.
