I find it stunning how effective a good marking campaign can really be. The collective thought is Bose for home or car is inferior. The 901 was unique and most likely the best they ever made but still no better than mid grade. For some people, Bose fits them, and that’s great. For some a Timex watch is for them because they misplace or break things and a Timex is reasonably accurate, durable and easy to replace. But know what it is. If you go to a party and want to impress don’t act proud of it, hide it. Any way your car looks like a ’05 from the picture and I would love to trade my ’04 for one but I literately have more money tied up in my home audio system than my current Boxster, and would be hurting for sure if I did trade it for an ’05. Enough of my rant, lets get back to the good stuff…PORSCHE!
WHY? Not to be mean or anything but Bose is low end audio in a high line car. And trust me I know audio. The collective thought among audiophiles who are very picky says Bose is low rent. It makes as much sense as someone putting a big decal on a Pontiac that says "Pontiac we build excitement". I had someone the other day ask me if my Porsche is front wheel drive?!? I said to myself “there is someone how knows nothing about sports cars”. When people who know audio see that Bose sign they are going to think the same thing about you. Once again I am not trying to be mean but just letting you know.
I have a '04 Boxster, 5 speed man transmissions and have notice a small oil leak on the floor of my garage. It is in the middle and half way between the rear and center of the car. I have read about the rear main seal issue but it sounded like this had been fixed by Porsche on the newer cars. I have less than 7000 miles on it so far. Could this be the RMS?
I would check the center storage between the seats. If it is not latch all the way it will sound the alarm. Check it even if you think all is OK. I had mine go off in the middle of the night and I was sure it was because of the motion sensors, and then I found the storage box slightly open. It must not have been latched all of the way and popped open in the mysterious night air!
anyone else see this report? http://www.autoweek.com/news.cms?newsId=102697
If your windows are going down to the roof lowering height then I would check the switch where the lever is to open the top. I can't see this switch being the problem if the windows are going all the way down. Just top opening height.
