  1. I did the sill protector thing on one of mine but elected to have a ****** aluminum one that wolled over the painted enge. I was buying for protection as I tended to drag my feet over there as I got in. I bought from a small supplier here in the US IIRC. I did see what seemed to be the ones in your picture at several US dealers when I googled. Click on the more pictures and see if you don't find something. I presume you posted the same question on boxsa.net which is a UK site.
  2. boxa.net may give you a source for the part that is more local. It is UK based.
  3. suggest you ask on Boxa.net as that forum is UK based. Sources are bound to be too. In the US, Crutchfield,com is a source for parts and instructions.

  5. California Car Covers Noah fabric. Survived 5 years of wind, sun and snow (12") and ice, leaves and chestnuts and me using a push broom to get the snow off and get on the road. Easy one person on and off. Perfect after 5 years. Didn't scratch the finish of the car. Comes with a bag for storage but I just stuffed it in the frunk once dry. I had the locking cord to run under the body and secure the cover more but the elastic edge of the cover held up just fine. Cusom made with pouches for mirrors and even different for base and S. Not cheap ($242) https://www.calcarcover.com/
  6. It is wonderful in this time to hear a concern for data and expert analysis. So often you see a shotgun approach that only starts an expensive spiral. Good luck. These guys are good.
  7. Are you sure the MAF is the right one for your engine? See the table at the end of this page. There even may be updates from when that was put together but it will give you an idea of the breakpoints for the various parts.
  8. Often written on the sticker on the front of the hood or on the sticker in the maintenance history book.
  9. I neither have any records nor is that shop still in business. I stumbled on them via an online recommendation and when I wandered in and saw what was in their shop my jaw dropped. I got the alignment and then found a set of take off wheels and rims from a dealer in a very posh neighborhood. Sold my rims and I think my cost after everything for a set of Michelins was less than $400. They lasted so long I eventually replaced them for age reasons, not wear. After they had done my PPI, all the corrective work I wanted done etc the owner of the shop received an inheritance and quit the business.
  10. See if instead of finding a generic alignment shop you can find one that sets up Porsches for racing. Meaning you find the head mechanic himself races and there are two cars with all the badging and roll-bars sitting in or just outside the shop. There is a difference between a generic "within specs" alignment and one done by someone who has intimate knowledge of what effect each adjustment has on handling and wear. I got a wear biased alignment that way that made my tires last and last.
  11. Might look at this post in this thread. I searched "camber".. There may be more but at l3east that gives you some other search terms to use to see if there have been previous threads.
  12. Might this person be from England? And, if so, resources that might help him are: boxa.net for local advice and for used parts https://www.9apart.co.uk/ in the UK www.douglasvalley.co.uk Lancashire in the UK steve strange on eBay boxsterbits on eBay https://www.jasmine-porschalink.co.uk/ and on eBay porscheheaven@yahoo.com or https://www.facebook.com/Porsche-Heaven-246901405365392/ in Doncaster https://prestigesalvage.co.uk/ in Leeds
