  1. just to conclude: I used Strasse porsche in Leeds. they were ok, not brilliant. cleaned outside of car but not in. forgot to reset stereo. still waiting for a paint job to be completed which as taken a bit of time. paid £610 inc vat. had a number plate light replaced, nothing major.
  2. From start to finish this job took me 10 minutes, unbelievable... i fitted it to a 2006 boxster, all four holes were predrilled and where they should be. I managed to get the hoops off using a chisel wrapped in a towel, it was easy and no damage at all. i only needed to replace 2 of the rubber gromets, the others were still easily intact. The pictures on this thread are perfect.
  3. its stopped snowing, the sun is out, so time for the motor bike!

  4. Hi All, Can anyone recommend/ suggest an independent garage to service a '06 Boxster in the Leeds/ Yorkshire area? i have phoned a few places and for the same job was quoted £420 - £545 plus vat... when pushed they all claim to do plugs and brake fluid, one company said that the tyre infalter also needs replacing (didn't even know i didnt have a spare wheel!)... £28 plus vat, is that likely?? price wise they are all much of a muchness, so it will come down to service and recommendation... any help welcomed!
  5. i only voted german as i can't think of a finnish make of car and if i was to tell people i had one from finland they would look at me like i am a wierdo...
  6. i have had two boxsters and both have this problem, its a real pain in the ***... its as if the gas cannot escape quick enough. you end up spending twice as much time at the pump than anyone else 'cos you have to be gentle on the flow. are we not sure its a design fault? i.e. the angle of the down pipe to the tank is too steep??
  7. I have thhe exact same problem, both white bits snapped! do you still have the link?
  8. Just found this link on the net, joined renntech and printed off all the help attached. looks simple enough, although fitting a wind deflector in the middle of an English Snow storm is going to look very funny ! :D thanks to all who contributed
