Irony? Huh...

Yeah, that was a crude first video made long ago with an iPhone 4s. I made a slightly better one later. The point is moot.

It’s been covered, but thanks.

A heat gun and cardboard box? Hopefully no one burns their house down because of your quest for YouTube fame and looks to you for answers. Best of luck. :)

Try Rennlist and appeal to the 996 crowd? I still get emails about these all the time (996 guys wanting them). You should be able to get $700-$800 easy.

Nope. Nuh-uh. Not even close.

You’re referring to the “Crios mod” and it sounds nowhere near as good as the internal exhaust mod. Not only are they not even in the same class, their classes aren't...

No longer available, but I hear you can get Ferrari fender badge stickers for your Boxster on alibaba.
Walmart also sells stick-on vents to decorate your car with.

Pull the drivers handle enough to drop the window, then use a coat hanger to reach across the cabin and pull the passenger door handle (pulling twice is supposed to unlock it).

Start at the bulb.
Check for 12V at the bulb connectors.
Work your way back.

Likely culprits are bad bulbs and the switch in the visor (since neither are working, maybe a fuse, but I don’t have...

The only difference between the Enthusiast and Pro versions has always been the number of VINs that can be stored (3 vs unlimited) and neither can do fuel gauge.

I’ve seen some reports on 986 Facebook groups of LED banks failing. The LEDs are not serviceable.
