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/
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.
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.
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. My specs wouldn't be good for you anyway as my wheels were 17"s and yours IIRC are 19"s. I do remember before the alignment the mechanic road tested the car (he drove a bit more vigorously than I did) and after the alignment the mechanic thoroughly road tested the car and then came back and rechecked the numbers. I don't think this was his first rodeo.
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.

Did you buy the right MAF? You don't reset the MAF, you ask the ECU to relearn based on the new parts you installed. A 10 second process, then lots of starts and stops and driving forces the relearn. Then you see if there are any codes that show up or if you need to do more diagnosis. Most codes are not MAF caused, but caused by other things.
I had a 2001S made in Finland. It had recurring air bag warning lights and I went through the buckle replace, ground replace TSB sequence and it still came back. Then a master mechanic came up with a new technique (the details of which I was never able to find out) and it was fixed finally. https://sites.google.com/site/mikefocke2/airbagwarninglighttsb
Are you sure the dealer does the tops and doesn't outsource the job to the top shop? Where do you live? You can read about how complex a job it is installingarobbinstop - mikefocke2 SITES.GOOGLE.COM even if the brand is different. And replacingthetop-adiy - mikefocke2 SITES.GOOGLE.COM
