    2002 Boxster Arctic Silver with red leather interior
  1. I just bought a pair of halogen headlights from UK as well... now, i know the differences between the LH and RH lights. But then, in North America, i thought all we care is the beams are wide, far and bright..:lightbulb:
  2. I am in Toronto Canada and due to the cold weather here, my 02 Boxster is in dormancy during November to April, that left her in commission six months per year. This is also my leisure vehicle and i rack up approximately 5000 to 6000 km per year. My dilemma is, should i change the engine oil on a yearly basis anyway or i can do it once every two years ? Also, my last brake fluid flush was three years ago, and the owner's manual recommends to replace it every two years, i checked the brake fluid reservoir and the brake fluid looks very clear still, should i replace it ? Thanks for advices in
  3. I am in Toronto and planning to do an oil change, annual inspection and brake fluid flush for my 02 Boxster when the season starts. I am wondering does anyone has any past experiences with respect to the following shops, goods and bads and certainly welcome for other recommendations. Thank you! EU Autowerks in Woodbridge MVS Motors in Markham
  4. Does anyone has any idea how much engine oil will be lost during IMS and/or RMS replacement ?
  5. Confirmed leaking from both IMS AND RMS and the following are the highlights of our conversation exchange: ME: which revision of the RMS seal was installed and are they using a special tool during this process, ADVISOR: one came from Porsche and didn't reply the special tool question ME: My warranty is up soon what if it is leaking again. ADVISOR: when warranty is up, it is up. ME: What if today is the last day of my warranty and after this fix, it leaks again tomorrow ADVISOR: that is a grey area and that doesn't happen often ME: that exactly happened to me two years ago when i
  6. I will pass this on to the Porsche dealer when i see them on Friday. Thanks. BTW, when you mentioned "Place in any case the seal without the tool, they will leak for sure after time", I will be very surprised that an authorized Porsche dealer is not using one when they are installing it?? I also read that RMS issue indeed is haunting Boxster and Cayman up to 2007's models as well, it seems like it really is a design flaw to begin with.
  7. I don't drive this car often (weekend car) and I do store it for 3 to 4 months during iwnter time, do you think if i started the engine say once every 2 weeks will help the "dryed seal" ?
  8. It is leaking again ..... after four RMS and IMS (including the original ones installed in the car when new, one replaced by the previous owner under warranty and two in the last two years under my ownership), i am going in this Friday for diagnostic for the same problem again. Frankly, i don't think it will go away, my 2 years warranty on this fix will be up soon, this problem didn't go away and I don't think it will. What if it leaks again after this up coming fix and the warranty is out ? I truly think this is a scam now.
  9. Folks, I recently bought a red clip for my 02 Boxster that I learned that will activate the infrared red sensor during the top is open. I did a test by sitting inside the driver seat while the alarm is armed with the red clip is in place, half of the time, the alarm won't go off regardless how i move around. Does anyone know why ? Is their a procedure that i have missed ? Steven
  10. Never know that a Red Clip is available for that purpose. Just ordered 2 of them from Pfaff Porsche in Toronto an it is like $3 each. :renntech:
  11. A Porsche owner had his motor blow out after only 43,000 kilometres and four months after the warranty expired. Pat Foran has more............ http://toronto.ctv.ca/consumer/#TopVideoAn
  12. Heck no! We wanna know about the excellent bodywork :D Here are a few pics of the stainless steel door sills for folks with the OEM upgrade. The mats are Porsche OEM. zoom in, its a bit dirty but you will see the Porsche logo :D I meant the mats in the first pic in the thread. They're black, don't fit at all, and there is no visible logo. Yes, this is referring to the first pic in the thread and they are black, perfect fit and purchased from Downtown Porsche in Toronto, price was $125 per set, the logo is visible but just not in that pic. Again, it was dirty and was
