Does anyone know if there's a reputable plastic replacement window for the top? Mine finally tore today, altho it did so at the corner, which is kinda odd. I know there are tops like GAHH that are...

I've had a similar squeak behind me on the left, mainly when the window is down. If I close the door on a cloth placed near the top (i.e. in between door and car) it disappears.

I'm guessing it's...

Nah DJ, I'm in Socal, but it sounds really cool. Is it really thousands of bikes out at one event?

Hey Nick, nice choice. I have the same style GSXR but a 2002 GSXR 750. No glamour shots, but one track shot of it mint before it took a spill:

It's not just engine power which distinguishes an S from a regular boxster, there's also better brakes, one more gear, slightly more torque (which you DO feel), larger wheels stock, and a stiffer...

Just an update, replaced the clock spring myself. Took maybe 2 hours (the most time consuming was going to the hardware store to buy a socket extender for the steering wheel nut). Steering is...

I pulled off the airbag last night, the wires looked quite intact and fine, I don't think they are the problem. The sound seems like it might actually be coming from deeper behind the airbag,...

Yeah, I tried setting the horn off by locking the car with a door open, the horn works fine. So it's probably more likely the wire just popped off or something and is now free inside the steering...

Clicking in Steering Wheel

Hey all, something very odd. I recently used the horn for the first time in months and months, and it didn't work. I still have an airbag light on from when the seatbelts went out (I did the fix...

Search for " Airbag Indicator". It's probably your seatbelt recepticles, a common issue in both Boxsters and 911s. I believe that thread talks about the fix.

Pretty sure BruceLee wasn't kidding. Although keeping the throttle pinned at all times might certainly be overdoing it, the engine does need to be revved up and down, at least above 4. It clears...

FYI, I think your price might be a tad optimistic. If you have time to wait, that's cool. But I'd probably lower it if you really want to get rid of it.

I've just noticed the oddest thing and was hoping it wasn't just me. Take a look at the fenders around your wheels (specially 986 owners). I've noticed that where it curls in to the wheel wells, at...
