I have a 2001 Boxster S, A 2007 Cayman S and just bought my first 911, a 2007 C4S. Ironically I think for sheer joy of driving the Boxster wins. The Cayman is the best handling car I have ever driven...

My Schnell short shift kit does this also, particularly going into third when the tranny is cold. Seems to go away after a few miles of warm up though.

I wouldn't dream of changing just one strut to a new one on a car with that mileage. The handling would be strange at best, dangerous at worst. Even finding a used one probably isn't a good idea. In...

Probably replaced the cluster. I have had three different clusters on my Boxster and therefore three different odometer readings. I'll probably never sell it so it doesn't matter but if I do I will...

I will have a Carrera S or 4S some day but I will have to get the point I can let something go. A turbo would be nice since I live at high altitude but they are pretty pricey. We will see.
