crazy fix from this board

I had the exact same thing happen not long after I acquired my low-mileage 2003 S - so just as you did, I immediately came here to look for a fix. Once I had gone through the primary steps that were...

Welcome to the Forum and to Boxster S ownership! You have come to the right place - both for general information, and to satisfy your mods obsession - though in my experience, this car has called...

another option

While I have not had your exact issue before, I would suggest fresh fuel and a long drive to 'bake out' deposits in the exhaust system and on the motor to rule those out as the possible sources for...

+1 for Tip

I was apprehensive about purchasing with the Tiptronic, but find that I love it. Of course I would prefer the new PDK for its faster response time, but given the option of the manual or Tiptronic, I...

great way to start

Beautiful. It seems as though you have selected an excellent car - and will avoid the frustrations of all the things you wish the car had. Congratulations.

what now?

I searched and found this thread when I had a problem filling my 2003 S - fuse E-6 looks good, and I hear the 'click' when I depress the metal flap, but the problem persists. I have not yet tried...

its not easy

I am a commercial litigation lawyer, but not a class action lawyer. Based on my limited knowledge of the 'class action' issues, I think that LoveBunny is most likely correct - the essence of...

That was a safe assumption - I had checked the battery terminals and the cables, however this quick-disconnect had appeared clean-and-tight, and it was only on secondary evaluation that I discovered...

I totally forgot to update as to what the problem really was - of course, it was a very simple thing - a battery cable quick-disconnect screw-down fitting was not quite tight enough! What an odd...

I was not sure how I was going to feel about the yellow calipers, but you did a great job, and I think it looks teriffic - nicely done.

So LoveBunny - what was the verdict on the shoes over on the fashion forum?

I chose the 986 S

I started a thread just like this to help me decide, and after all of the input that I got here, along with my own research and test drives, I selected the 986 S, and have been thrilled with my...

no moisture

I think we can rule out "B", as the problem arose before even a drop of rain had fallen - further, the top was up, so no moisture got in to the car. Told you that this gremlin was a tricky one! As...

Tricky Gremlin - care to speculate?

I had the first problem of any sort with my 2003 S this past Friday, and boy was it strange! I'll try to keep this short, but not leave out any important technical details.

Congratulations and best wishes with the new car. My suggestion for the first thing would be a wind-stop and the roll-hoop inserts.

Have fun with the new car and give us updates on how you are...

I have a 986S with the Bose system, and that's a similar location for the amp, though mine is mounted more towards the top, and is not behind a panel (I assume for better air flow and access). I...

Boxtaboy correct?

I had never given any thought to why this common and simple feature was not included, but am thinking that Boxtaboy might be right. Any other theories as to why we don't have this most basic option?
