  1. Yeah, I didn’t ask many questions when my Porsche dealer gave me the $2500 quote because the number was so ridiculous. I just told them no thanks and laughed a little. In fact, they actually quoted me $5500 ($2500 for the motor replacement and $3000 for a replacement top). My rear window (plastic) needs to be replaced. I know the shop they use for top replacements and I already had a quote from them to replace the top for half the cost ($1600). Problem is I obviously don’t want to replace the top until I can get it working properly. Anyone know a good Porsche shop in the Washington, DC area? My local shop I’ve been using for 10+ years has let me down a couple times now. Bummer.
  2. Hey The convertible top on my '99 Boxster has been acting up for the past few years. Sometimes worked fine and other times wouldn't work at all. I had it looked at by my local shop and by my local Porsche service center. My local shop replaced the switch in the convertible top latch housing (a few years ago) and then the emergency break switch (a couple years ago). This didn't solve the problem. Then a couple of weeks ago the Porsche service center again replaced the emergency break switch, again not solving the problem. Over the past week or so the top had completely stopped working, but then this morning it was working again (intermittently). The tech at Porsche said that everything has been checked (relay, switches, etc.) so he suggests replacing the convertible top motor for approximately $2500. I'd appreciate insights from anyone that has been through this. I see quite a few posts re malfunctioning tops so any info will be helpful.
