  1. Good point and thanks for the comment!! I agree with all of what you said based on my experience with other roadsters and also my few test drives in the Boxsters. Love the sound of the engine when you really rev it. However... I have a couple of long-ish raod trips coming up and I know I'll need some tunes to distract and keep me awake. And, unlike some other comments I have read, I really love the sound of the Bose system in the Boxster and think my digital music hooked up to it will would great. Thanks again!
  2. Thanks. These looks great but I am really looking for a plush black carpeted mat with contrast Porsche logo stitching. Looks like the Lloyds mats are nice but I have yet to see a photo of one IN a Boxster and also curious how they stay in place (velcro, etc.)
  3. Only the earlier boxsters (986 models) have the ability for an AUX interface. The later models use MOST fibre optics so you either buy the porsche aux interface which is useless as the sound level is very low or buy a dension unit. Ther is NO wiring on the back of the head unit of a 987 for an aux input. FM modulator for those that want a cheap option or Dension for those that want something better. No alternatives i'm afraid , its been researched many times and i've even looked at the wiring diagrams its a definite no go. Thank you very much, Jay. This is the definitive answer I was looking for and that I pretty much assumed based on my research the last few days. I'll probably end up with the Dension (used to have an icelink in my Audi and except for a couple of interface glitches it sounded great). I hate to spend the money on it but I know for road trips I'll want my iPod.
  4. Thanks for your comments. I meant to say in my post that I am not a fan of FM modulators so I probably won't go that route. I was really hoping there some way for a simple 1 cable hook up, even if just a simple 3.5mm jack... but so far sounds like no dice. Bummer.
  5. First off, this is my first post so go easy on me. :) I just purchased a 2008 Boxster w/ 6-sp, PASM, Bose, loaded. The car is being shipped and I take delivery next week (can't wait!). I diligently searched the forum and many other Porsche forums and have not found the info I am looking for yet. All posts I have read discuss full iPod integration and control with the factory unit. I would simply like to connect my iPod from an Aux Out to either the charge port on the bottom of iPod or to 3.5mm on top. I have a separate cig lighter adaptor to charge it if necessary. I do not need the Dension Gateway 500 unit or any other interface/control type units. I prefer to set the iPod in the dash and use the iPod itself to control - I take it in and out of the car all the time. Does anyone know if the separate Dension cable (for sale for $49 at Bumper Plugs) or any other brand Aux Out-type cable will work by itself without the Gateway 500 box and all the MOST optical connection crap? I'd even disconnect the 6-disc changer and use that port if necessary as I will never bother with the changer. I have the CDR24 w/ Bose and 6-disc in boot. I also searched floor mat posts and could not find photos of the Lloyds mats or other mats in an actual 987 Boxster. I'l like to swap out my factory sand beige floor mats with black factory mats or Lloyds mats with contrast embroidery. Does anyone know if the Lloyds mats have the same velcro connection to keep them in place? Do they look stock? Any photos!!?? Thanks in advance for all your advice! :D B
