I dunno, either, Rick. I really am asking for a friend, I'm not making it up!

Thanks, Tony, but these are the ones that go in the front of the fenderwell. I am looking for something that goes in the rear.

Rear mudguards?

A pal of mine who also owns a 986 is looking for rear mudguards. The "universal" ones will do the job, but look awful. Does anyone know of custom ones made for Boxsters? These are Miata ones...

No more beep!

I resolved the mysterious single beep when locking/alarming the car. It is not well-described (at least not that I have seen), but part of the anti-theft CDR220 system is a piece of vinyl glued into...

This is what the install looks like. I deliberately chose a windshield mount in order to keep the radio close to my eyeline when driving. Taking my eyes off the road to do anything in the cockpit...

Thanks, folks. Burg, I will fit one of those isolators, and bran, if you are referring to the antenna cable, I tightly bundled the extra cable the way CAI recommends. I bet the isolator will solve...

Satellite radio install probs

I installed a Sirius/XM Onyx Plus in my 2001 today. Managed to mount the antenna under the cowl on top of a plastic box, found the large grommet behind the battery to run the cable into the...

Tire pressure when +2

I read an article recently that suggested that when you increase your wheel size, but keep the same rolling diameter, e.g., going from stock 17" wheels to aftermarket 19", known as "+2," you should...

Water pump

Well, the diagnosis is in, and the washing machine sound is the water pump destroying itself. Clutch is almost gone, too, and before I swap the helper spring I want to see what a new clutch feels...

Increasing clutch "feel"

Haven't posted for awhile, the car has been parked since June when suddenly the engine started sounding like a washing machine when it's agitating the clothes, chug, swish, chug, swish, chug, swish. ...

Post-AOS oil leak

In eight years my car had never leaked so much as a drop of oil, until the day this January that the AOS let go in a big way. Major smoke screen, cylinders got hydro-locked with oil, repeatedly...

An interesting question. I am not aware of a "magic" wheel cleaner that will make brake dust, road grime, and tar stream or fly right off a wheel. You wouldn't want it to fly off, in any event,...

Good-bye!

I like the "auf wiedersehen" spoiler message. I have a "PORSCHE" decal on there now, but I've been toying with the idea of changing it to "wassergekuhlt!" or "...is a TWO-syllable word!"

Whaddya know

So if it is not the battery, it's mold/bacteria after all. I'm going to try the following:

Not the battery

OK, I checked out the battery. It seems fine, not leaking, and doesn't smell at all. No smell in the battery compartment at all.

What could be the source of a vinegar smell??

Porsche wins #19

Well, I was right, it was a pretty interesting race! To come from 56th to win, wow! Reminds me of Montoya being dead last and winning Indy 2015.
