The exahaust problem was a vaccuum line that goes to both mufflers... There is also a recall is on the screws for the door latching mechanism... The soft top latch was just deffective as well... Parts are on order... Coastal Motorsports Corpus Christi...
So I'm driving my 2008 Boxster S LE and I suddenly notice the exhaust noise is much louder than normal(it was raining), almost like the sound of a blown manifold gasket... The car only has 4,000 miles on it and the closest Porsche dealer is 180 miles away... Any known issues with the sports exhaust? Is it possible that water got in the air filter? Cauld the cold water getting on the hot exhaust have anything to do with this noise?
Wow if you can reach at least 297 hp you'll see just the type of "beast" you have purchased... The 987 is one of the best balanced cars out there. Congrats on a supreme purchase....!!!!
Shouldn't the 2008's come with the most up-to-date version? They no doubt do but I didnt get my copy from a 2008 model. I thought a late 2006 version was better than the 2005 version that britairdog already has. But if soemone has a 2008 UK version - I'm interested in getting a copy too ;) Mike Mine is a 2008... but the dvd is from 2007 FYI... Dont buy the update disc for this car (your orange pumpkin), the map update disc is designed for 'aftermarket' installs. The actual map on the disc is exactly the same as the 05.2007 one that came with your car. If you ask me how I know, I compared the files on the my one against the 'new' one, they are the same in name, size and date-time stamp. Ok, so I will continue to live in "no street" haha, thanks for the heads up Nick

The car can be driven in "sport mode" with the PASM set to normal by deselcting the PASM once sport has been selected. Where is this menu? Thanks for the clarification on the sports exhaust system. There is no menu and this is only available if you have PASM and Sport Chrono (or Sport Chrono Plus) Then you will have two buttons next to your spoiler button on the lower console under the HVAC controls. One is labelled Sport and the other is labeled with a Shock Absorber icon. Pressing the Sport button turns on PASM and "sport mode" (edgier throttle, later ABS and less invasive PSM) then press the Shock Absorber icon button to turn off PASM. Regards, Alan The PASM is not available when you build your porsche (the limited edition) in the website... That was my question... it's is not available in the configurator, yet the specs say it has it... Or to put it in other words... if PASM is not available for the limited edition Boxster S, what is the purpose for the Chrono Plus...?
Nick, you seem to know about these cars... I have a couple of questions... 1.- The website shows Porsche Active Suspension management as part of the specs for this car... Is it on the car? 2.- The PSE is "active"? Do I have to have the chrono on to be able to get those pesky extra HP? 3.- The sport button changes the mapping... but does it also change suspension settings and exhaust?
Apparently you can, not that anyone would ever do that ;), and even if I knew someone who has, the disc they may have copied would have been the US version. How do you suppose someone with an Orange Boxster in Texas go about getting that copy? ;)
Wow!!! that is great!! As an orange Boxster owner I have to say .... awsome!!!!!!
