I'm going to respectfully disagree with clear coating them.

Unless there's now clear coats that are engineered to go on top of plastic instead of paint?

01 S, Multiple CEL's and the rabbit hole

1. Double-check your work to ensure that there is no unmetered air entering the engine.

2. Disconnect the MAF and see if it runs better.

986 Noob question

If your '2003' is a MY2003 then it has the updated bumper designs. The MY2001 does not.

If they are being sold out of Japan, I can't imagine that they would be left hand drive.

Intermittent crank-no start

The symptoms match a Crank angle sensor fault. The only way to test would be to use an oscilloscope of some description while the fault is evident.

Id just go ahead and replace the sensor - even...

Do you think that you might go down this path? I agree that the styling is great.

I've never seen such a good looking Cayman-style hardtop

You're rather late to the party.

How hard they are to install seems to depend upon how rough you are willing to accept the fit to be.

Do pay attention to the bed-in procedure.

And next time around, don't switch pad compounds without also replacing (or machining) the rotors.

Will my fob-less 986 keys start the car?

If it's the same as my Valet key (which has a button and an LED light) then it will start the car just fine. ('02 S)

Ger's 2003 Porsche Boxster S

I'd try a single hex socket with an impact gun.

If it starts spinning once it loosens then I'd reach for multigrips to push the arm back 'home' and go again with the inpact gun so that it bites.
