    2.5 Boxster
  1. Hi, I cannot turn my key back to the zero position, it springs back to the right so the steering won't lock & the dashboard lights stay on. Also the windscreeen wiper lever does not work Is this the problem above that I have?
  2. I would paint them because I have the same ones & they have turned rusty & look horrible.
  3. I had a similar problem on a BMW & it turned out to be a cracked weld between one of the pipes & the flange of the exhaust manifold
  4. Did you remove the exhauxt mainifold? I remember my 3 series BMW had a simialr sound when there was a leaking gasket on the manifold allowing the sound from the cams to come through
  5. Will 996 turbo style wheels of the following sizes fit straight onto a 986 Boxster or will they require spacers & what size? Front 7.5J ET 50 Rears 9J ET 52 Cheers
  6. Hi, I have seen some replica alloys for sale second hand locally from a 996. The front have 225/40/18 tyres & the rears are 285/30/18 tyres. They are replicas of the sport techno style as fitted to the 987/997 models but designed for the 986/996 fitment. I do not know the offset or width. Do the replicas have different offsets between 986/996. The reason is I wonder if the rears will fit on a 986 boxster with the 285 tyres & what the maximum width of the replicas normally are?
  7. Glad to see you sorted the problem. It also took me a while to figure out it was those shields
  8. There is a sleeve wrapped around the pipe of the cat that corrodes at the welds. I removed mine with tin snips after the OK from the OPC mechanic, otherwise it's new cats
  9. I just took a look and you are right. Seems right now the cheapest you can get from them is $695. I guess these things are cheaper in the dead of winter when business is slow. I'm sure business picks up for them when spring rolls around and every starts getting their cars ready for summer. Supply and demand. I bought mine the first week of January and paid $350 from the user topsonline.com. As I recall, they had several others on there at that time and the buy it know was around $390. They were definitely cheaper a few months ago. Right now the only ones you can get on that price range are the ones with plastic windows. I guess keep checking back and hope those prices fall again... maybe end of summer or late fall. Lots of people don't like the sonnedeck because its not german. But trust me, the nationality of your canvas top won't bother you after you see it on there. It looks great, works great, and like I said... I think is much better than the OEM top that came with the car. It's definitely a quality top. I wouldn't hesitate to pay $700 or more for it. Does the new top with the glass window reduce the noise from outside over the OEM version?
  10. I hopped on ebay and TopsOnline.com has some Robbins tops with glass windows for $350... thats right sports fans... I only paid $350 and it was only an additional $400 to get it installed by a local installer. It was a great deal, and I am very very happy with the way it turned out. Where on EBAY did you look? I can only find Buy it now for $695
  11. Lower control arm with built in ball joint was the problem I had. The whole arm had to be replaced @ £120 for the parts. USD 200 ?????? Also 1 hour labour I reckon
  12. Sorry to be a pain but would you be able to post some pictures of the roof in various states of opening. I would like to see how it folds when opened & also how it goes into the rear clamshell.
