  1. Had an oil leak shortly after picking up my 08 Boxster. First was told it was 2 valve cover bolts that were defective. Now they told me the Variocam solenoid cover was the leak location. Parts are ordered and should be here tomorrow. Hope this does it. John
  2. Wartooth, Let us all know when you do the ECU upgrade . We'll be anxious to hear if it does make a big diff. congrats on the new car. I just got my 2008 base boxter with pasm and it is fantastic. know how you feel :D
  3. Phunder, Try Mantis in Oakville, Speers road area. They do Porsche repairs and are highlighted in the PCA UCR magazine and many members use them. Worth a try. They use original Porsche parts.
  4. Jayray: BE-AUTI-FUL! When you start driving it with the top down, you're going to have a hard time wiping that Permagrin off your face! Enjoy and drive it in good health! Regards, Maurice. Maurice, Can't wait for the warmer weather to do exactly that. The grin has already started :)
  5. Took it on some winding roads today and was reminded of why I bought it :) Haven't tried the PASM yet but that will come. John
  6. Will go to see it for the first time tomorrow and take some pics. Had trouble sleeping last night, what a surprise :D Thanks for the good wishes. John
  7. Or will it??? lol jk Congrats! What options did you pick? PASM Wind deflector Sound Plus 18" Boxster S wheels Bixenon Lights Heated seats and Climate control are standard in Canada, probably due to the much higher price we pay Sport Steering wheel Coloured wheel crest Electronic adjustable seats I think that is it. John
  8. Just got a call that my new 2008 Boxster has arrived at the dealer. I can hardly sit still untill it is ready for pickup. Only problem is the salt on the roads from the ton of snow we got in the Toronto, CAN area. Will have to leave it at the dealer until the salt is washed away, bummer. I have waited 7 months so maybe another 2 weeks won't kill me. :D
  9. Anyone know if the 911 C4S can be taken onto a track in stock form without a bolt in roll bar? thanks, John
  10. John: Congratulations! The wait can be made a little easier if you can get a heads up from your salesman when your car gets loaded onto a ship. You can then follow its voyage and learn the arrival date at the U.S. port. Regards, Maurice. My brother lives in NY state and he ordered his 911 from a Pennsylvania dealer. It took 5 weeks from build date to delivery. Just wondered if this was your experience. Because I live in the Toronto area, the port of entry is Halifax, NS. Haven't heard if we can track the progress across the ocean but I will be asking. Thanks for all the high fives. Will try to figure how to upload pics when it comes. John
  11. I have checked these numbers with ones I saw in a book by Paul Frere on the Boxster. Here is what he stated as the numbers for the 2005 model. Boxter spring rate (N/mm) Front 27 Rear 30 Anti roll bar Front 23.6 x 3.4 Rear 19.0 x 2.5 Boxter S spring rate (N/mm) Front 27 Rear 33 Anti roll bar Front 24 x 3.8 Rear 19.6 x 2.6 Boxter S PASM spring rate (N/mm) Front 33 Rear 40 Anti roll bar Front 24.5 x 3.8 Rear 19.6 x 2.6 It seems RFMs numbers were close but look off when looking at the rear stabalizer bar. Why would it be less than the 05 models? When looking at the Parts manual for the MY07, the front of the Boxster PASM and the Boxster S PASM have the same part number but the rears are diff. probably due the extra weight in the S model. Bottom line, the PASM on the Boxster improves the suspension a fair bit and for that I am happy. Any confirmation of exact specs would be appreciated. John
  12. My Boxster is to be ready on the 19th of Feb. Does anyone know how long it takes for a Boxster to go from beginning to end on the line? As you might have gussed, I can't wait!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! :D John
