  1. I filled my tank to the top, and still my gauge reads a bit past 3/4!!!! Is this common? I know that with my 944 the gauge never read full. and it was a ground issue. Is this the same?
  2. I hopped into my toy today, put in my Eric Clapton, BB King cd and I'll be darned! BB was singing his heart out, but Eric sounded like he was kicking in from the mens room down the hall! After playing with the controls, I find that my entire L/S track is GONE! :eek: Being totally ignorant about Audio, do I figure on replacing the radio, or could it be the amp? Opinions please. There is a replacment radio on e-bay as we speak.
  3. I hate admit it, but you are absolutely right! I work nights at AZ and am a Subaru Parts Manager during the day. So at least once a week, I go into Autozone, only to find a frustrated STI or Porsche owner, waiting to speak to the "expert". If only they knew!!!! hehe :thumbup:
  4. I was with you all until the "Porsches and Autozone don't mix well" Hmmmm do I sell my boxster, or do I quite my job with Autozone???????????????????????? :unsure:
  5. I can't believe it!!!! The weather was a bit warm (for Long Isalnd anyway!) So I went to lower the top, (being careful to use the "chop" method) and **** IT! the rear window CRACKED! :censored: I decided to hold of on any replacement for the winter and see if I can find a sail maker locally who can replace the plastic rear window in the spring. I just had to get this off my chest!
  6. Very much appreciated guys! As you know, P-car ownership can be very rewarding, but in my opinion, it would be frustrating as hell without these forums! I agree with you 110% Max. the board works when we all try and give back a little of what we take from it. And Tool Pants, YOU ARE THE MAN! :cheers:
  7. I just spoke to my friendly local dealer service manager as to why my alarm on my 98 keeps going off. To my dismay, he informed me that while this is a rare problem, he has had to change a couple of alarm control units, to the tune of $1400 - $1800! :eek: I'm now searching for a used piece, but am being asked for the part number on the box. being in total shock over the price of a new one, I didn't have the presence of mind to ask where it's located. can someone please let me know where to find it, so that I can start locking my car again?
  8. Ahhh I see sort of like a warning system built in to the tire. hmmm good point! I have a new found respect for the thump thump thump......
  9. OK maybe I'm crazy but I notice that if I let my 98 sit in the garage for a week or so, then take it out for a spin, I have a thumping as if there is a flat spot on the tires. It lasts for maybe 2 to 3 miles, then seems to vanish. Funny thing is I notice the same on my 944. Am I crazy (ok yes I'm crazy) or does this have to do with the soft compound tires on both these cars? I deal with "bling bling Subaru WRX zoom zoom ricers" all day long, (www.mspt.net , shameless plug) and have yet to hear anyone complain about this. Is this just the nature of the beast? or what?
  10. Do I need any special tools to do the oil change on my 98 2.5? And is there anything i should look out for? I know it's a dumb question, but after all I'm new to this!
  11. Thanks! I guess the Oil Fairy was good to me then! Besides it was the only 10W-40 i've been able to find in a synthetic! Autozone no longer carries it (at least in New York) P.S. the Yankees SUCK!
  12. Has anyone used Amsoil. 10W-40 on their Boxster? I have a buddy who is a distributor, and swears by the stuff. And today, a case showed up on my door step, (the oil fairy I think).
  13. Just an update. I contacted a local Porsche dealer, and after running my VIN, he informed me that if he could confirm the cat is defective, Porsche will replace it under warranty!!!! THANK YOU MR. DEALER!!!! by the way it's a 98 with 70800 miles on it.
  14. I think I have the problem narrowed down to 2 different, but related issues! I'm now almost 100% the false alarms are due the infrared sensors, as I can set the alarm using the double lock method (thus shutting off the infrared sensors) and the indicator light flashes properly, and the alarm seems to work properly, and next I'm willing to bet the previous owner unplugged the alarm horn because of the problem. I'll know in the morning, if the guy next door doesn't leave a note on my car again!
