Boxster s umbrella

Got this for Christmas so we can leave the speed humps on and it gives the convertible a break. Plus clear side markers.

Boxster s umbrella

Damn, I got excited when I read the title and thought someone had found the genuine umbrella that fits into that little sill compartment.

Your cover does sound like it will be a positive addition to your speedster lifestyle though

*edit* I feel silly now, 9-a-part sell them new so they're not rare. https://rover.ebay.com/rover/0/0/0?mpre=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.ebay.com.au%2Fulk%2Fitm%2 F182643161209

The cover looks good! I would just caution you about using it if it's windy or the car is dirty, unless it's garaged, the flapping material could cause paint scratches/swirls

I refused to buy one of those when they where still available (the original 986/996 one), I don't care if it says Porsche on it, I'm not paying $79 for an umbrella. A generic black umbrella fits in there just fine (a compact collapsable one).

Some would say that an MR2 would fit in you driveway just fine - but I havenít bought the genuine umbrella either so I guess that means that I agree with you!

Iíve had trouble finding one with a narrow enough handle, so they may get my money yet...
