  1. :clapping: We love new members like you! Welcome!
  2. entire wheel does not need to come off, just the airbag/horn frame. Have you read through the preceding pages of this thread? I think most everything has been covered regarding what you can do. Airbag light will stay on until reset with a durametric device which your dealer or independent mechanic should have. When this happened to me, I sprayed s liberal amount of contact cleaner in both seatbelt and had my mechanic clear the code, has not come back(6 months now I think).
  3. I think I recall seeing an LS1 or LS2 stuffed into a 911 but I do not recall seeing one in a Boxster. While searching there seems to be plenty of people that have contemplating the idea though.
  4. yes (did you read my post?! ;) ) COBOXSTER-S, glad you figured it out. Enjoy your new ride B)
  5. Was thinking the same thing providing they did in fact not include directions to in the owners manual.
  6. "aye captn', she can't take the down force, she's breaking up!" :lol:
  7. Really? There are several discussions on various swaps for the boxster through out the forum. Search this section of the forum with the key word "swap" here are just a few results... http://www.renntech.org/forums/index.php?s...411&hl=swap http://www.renntech.org/forums/index.php?s...313&hl=swap http://www.renntech.org/forums/index.php?s...352&hl=swap http://www.renntech.org/forums/index.php?s...282&hl=swap http://www.renntech.org/forums/index.php?s...459&hl=swap http://www.renntech.org/forums/index.php?s...441&hl=swap
  8. Lots of feedback and suggestions on these and many other tires here, take some time to do a little searching. I have only had experience with the Michelin Pilot Sports and Pilot Sport PS2's on the boxster. Liked them both, but hands down prefer the PS2's. Once again I'll quote another members comment from a previous thread and I agree when he said: :D
  9. well... "cool" is a matter of personal taste. You'll need to look into the after-market for spoilers like that (Techart, Gambella possibly). If you put one of those on you will certainly stand out. ^_^
  10. A leaky water pump is not uncommon, and is often an indication the pump will fail soon. My recommendation would be to replace it. Once you have replaced the pump and have all your hoses back on, you can refill the system via the fill tube located in the trunk next to the oil fill tube. Take a moment to run a search, there is at least one DIY thread here on renntech on the proper procedure for filling and bleeding the cooling system. Good luck!
  11. Indeed your selection of lights for your silver boxster is very tasteful. B) Where did you get the clear third brake light and PM about your headlights, I might be interested in them...
  12. How many miles on the car? I would say it's not too uncommon for the WP to seize. It was probably beginning to fail, leaked, got into the bearings and ultimately froze. I did not replace mine myself when it needed it, but it looks like a fairly straight forward procedure.
  13. well my limited experience (i.e. no track - only autox) the plus size up front helped reduce some of the understeer. Plus it seems difficult at times to find the 225 in the PS2. I have also heard really great things about the Advans, but if you go that way I would think you should buy them all around and not mix.
  14. I'm no expert, but a guess, your skill level and confidence has increased and now you may simply be carrying too much speed into those turns. Plus those front tires could be heat cycled to death, but if you keep 'pushing" through those corners you'll need a new set in no time! :lol: kabel - who wishes he had your problem, he only autocrosses :P
