  1. I agree..there are plenty of 987s nowadays, for some reason though the manual cars are mostly base model, I am looking for an S model. I had a 986 base (220hp) and can use the additional horses the second time around. :P I will definitely update you guys with decision and pic as soon as I have the car... I am also thinking about having the white one (#1) CPO'd...anybody know how much this will cost?

  3. Looking to pick up a 987S this weekend, here are the choices (both MT); Pros being the options I prefer and cons being what I would have to do to get the car the way that I want. 1) 06 White/ Black/ 42M Miles Pros: I like color, Sport Chrono, Sport Seats and Steering Wheel. Cons: Blemishes on the paint, big scratch on quarter panel, though hard to see being white. No Xenons, not certified Warranty, only remaining 8M miles and 1 year. Missing tool kit and instruction manual. Price: ~32K 2) 05 Silver/ terracota/ 26M Pros: Porsche Certified Warranty until 2011/ 100M, full leather, sport seat, Xenons, 19"s carrera s wheel Cons: prefer color config of #1, but can also like this color. does not have as many "sporty features" as #1 Price: ~37K Do you think the ~5K is the options in #2... xenons, 19's and porsche extended warranty is what I would add to #1 comments? ;)
  4. After an incident, my right side factory-equipped litronic light was replaced. The problem is the new passenger side and driver side low beam color does not match. The old light is closer to white with a slight green tint to it while the older driver side light is much more purple. The car is a MY2000 w/ 76M Miles. Here are some other facts: 1) Both lights turned on for the first time after being off for a few hours starts of the same purplish color with the newer light turning to a lighter color within minutes, while the older light stayed relatively purple. 2) Both light output seems the same 3) Pulled the bulbs out and discovered that they have different part numbers on them: Left Bulb (older): Philips Germany D2S 35W E 85123 e1 03V 9MO1 Right Bulb (newer) Philips Germany D2S 35W 85122 e1 03V M407 Can someone please tell me the if the difference in color is just due to the difference in the age of the lights or is it because of the different part# found on the bulbs? Thank you.
  5. How do I wash the convertible top? Any special method aside from the car manual? Which products would you guys recommend for cleaning the rear plastic window?
  6. What is the purpose of this liquid on the battery? Do I check from the bottom or the top? It seems to only leak after/ when the engine is turn on. Thanks for your help...
  7. I have noticed a clear liquid that seems to stay/stained on the driveway. It is a clear liquid coming from the front of the car. Is this A/C related? Checked all the fluid levels and everything seems ok. Should I be concerned about this?
  8. Does Anyone here have any experience with wheel spacers; I am currently running the Porsche 18" (turbo-look)wheels and would like to have a flush look on the fenders, but do not want to upgrade to wider wheels as I feel that the current wheel size is optimal for my 2000 boxster's performance. Any suggestions on where and what size spacers I should get? Any suggestions on custom exhaust? or should I just upgrade to an S type exhaust?
  9. I am planning on adding a Pioneer Avic N1 headunit to my 2000 boxster (Navi, DVD, MP3, etc). Does anyone here have any experience with this unit? Also some questions: 1) Do I need to take the dash apart to install a new headunit? 2) Where can I get the audio keys to remove the headunit? 3) Any special requirement to instal this unit? Thanks....
  10. I adjusted my headlights last night; what a difference! I love the Litronics lights...thanks for all of your help. Henry V...just curious to how you become so knowledgeable about Boxsters.
  11. My car have the washers and the low beams do move up when I flip on the high beams. I have the manual and will try to adjust the beams tonight. Henry V, how would I adjust the self-leveling mechanism? is this the same as the low beam adjustment?
  12. Just bought a 2000 Porsche Boxster that came with Litronics Headlights. Not sure if they are stock or aftermarket. However, the headlights are aimed low and when I turn on the high beams; it seems that the low beams move their aim up. My question is whether or not I can adjust the aim of the low beams...can someone please help with instructions?
  13. Thanks for the replies...I will definitely look for oil leaks under the car. Will the Porsche dealers release service history if given the VIN # of the car (even if it is not yet mine?).
  14. Hi Guys, Wow! what a good informative forum. I have been lurking for a few weeks (as I have been searching for a boxster). I have found a 2000 boxster 2.7 5 spd with the sport touring package with 55K Miles and will finalize my deal this weekend. Please help with my questions below: I have heard about some engine failures on the 97-99. Have they fixed the problem for the 2000 and up cars? I would like to test drive the car one final time before signing on the dotted line. Please let me know what I should look for and how to confirm that the engine and transmission (or anything else) are in good condition (without taking it to the techs). Please note that the car appears to be in very good condition cosmetically and in terms of wear and tear. Thanks in advance for your help.
