  1. Hi all, I have a 2001 Boxster S that I want to put 18's on, and I have 2 sets of wheels I am looking at. Porsche Carerra C2 Wheels 997.362.142.00 11 x 18 and 997.362.136.00 8 x 18 or Italias 18 x 9.5 and 18.8 My plan is to put the 225/40ZR-18 SUMITOMO HTR Z III XL on the front and 265/35ZR18 Sumitomo HTR Z III on the rears. As of now I am leaning towards the Italias, but am unsure which spacer to use. Thanks for your help!
  2. I had the 1128 and the 1130 last week, and while driving the CEL flickered and the engine felt like it was stuttering. It is new MAF time. That is where I would start. ('01 Boxster S w/ 103,000 miles)
  3. I have a durametric, and it has been useful, as I identified a few Check Engine Lights that came on, and it allowed me to reset them. I had an MAF go bad, and it is being replaced. However, if you don't plan to do the work your self, I'm not sure if you will get the benefit from it.
  4. My friends and I own 5 V1's between us, and have been more than please with them. I've not tried a K40, as it wouldnt work for my application. I have hardwired the V1 with remotes in 3 vehicles, and just move the unit from vehicle to vehicle. As for the tickets using a V1, The V1 can only warn you, and if yo don't heed the warning, or it is instant on and you are the first car, the V1 (or any other radar detecter) can't and won't help. 2 bits of advice, pay attention, slow down. :)
  5. I also have an '01 Boxster S (with 102,400 miles!) and i was using a borrowed GPS the other day, and my speedo is also registering 4 mph fast. I doubt that there is anything we can do, other than keep that 4 mph in the back of our minds. My Land Rover LR3 also registers 4 mph fast, can you say conspiricy? ;)
  6. I have an '01 Boxster S with 102,000 miles on it. I had a check engine light come on yesterday, with the following codes; DTC Count = 5 Fault Number:P1130 Description:Porsche fault code 361 - Oxygen sensing adaptation Repair Infomation:idle range bank 2 DTC Count = 5 Fault Number:P0300 Description:Porsche fault code 62 - Misfire damaging to cat. Repair Infomation:converter DTC Count = 5 Fault Number:P0306 Description:Porsche fault code 68 - Cylinder 6 misfire damaging to Repair Infomation:cat. converter DTC Count = 5 Fault Number:P0305 Description:Porsche fault co
  7. Hi all, I am looking for recommendations for 5 point harnesses for my '01 Boxster S. I use it occasionally for track days, and I am looking for something that uses the existing seat belt mounting points, and can use the roll bar for the shoulder straps. thanks!
  8. My '01 S just turned 100,000 miles last weekend. I have had it a year and bought it with 95,000 on it. The only issue I have had are the valve covers weep a bit of oil,, so I know that sooner or later I will need to replace the gaskets, and, just after I hit 100,000 the check engine light came on, for the oxygen sensors. I reset them, and 1,000 miles later, car runs perfectly and no more check engine light. Enjoy! Let us know which you get.
  9. I wonder if all 3 are related. There is a cutoff switch for the starter as well as a cutoff for the cruise control, and yo are saying the clutch pedal is creaking. I bet if you are to track down the issue, all will be resolved at once.
  10. Hi folks, I am looking for some advice on the best place to install a 2 meter ham radio transceiver. I need to connect to 12 volts (preferably the battery, and get the antenna wire to the transceiver. My radio has a remote faceplate that is separate from the transceiver body, so I need to run a phone cord (like the Valentine 1 uses) into the passenger compartment. i am also looking for the best place for an antenna. Advice please? Thanks very much! Oh, if it matters, it is a Yaesu FT8900 radio
