Thanks for the input Gary in BR, but I have decided to sell my Boxster before I leave Florida. I am going to be commuting from BR to Metairie every day and I don't want to put her through that daily punishment. Perhaps in the future I'll upgrade to the 997 I have always wanted.
The check engine light came on last night for the very first time after 39k miles in my 03 Boxster. Went to Autozone this morning and the car gave me the P0455 code. Based on some of the posts I have read, it appears that it can be as simple as replacing the gas cap. Has anybody encountered something else that they want to share? Thanks :renntech:
Well, I have spent most of my afternoon (I guess better than working) reading the posts regarding tires, but I did not find one that was strictly about tire noise. I am ready to change tires on my MY 03 Boxster with 18" Turbo Twists, of course performance is the most important aspect but if somebody has some good input on quiet tires it will be appreciated. Thanks. :rolleyes: :renntech:
I was faced with the same dilema 2 years ago. I purchased the heads and blanks from Sunset and had them programed and cut at the dealer. It was much cheaper. If you have a couple of dealers around you shop for the best price. Good Luck!
For sure a "big change", but I am looking forward to it. I will definitely appreciate any information with regards to trustworthy mechanics. I guess if I really have to I can take it to NO. Thanks
So I took my MY '03 to the body shop to get my front bumper fixed. Believe or not some idiot backed into me at a red light. Anyways, the guy from the body shop just called to tell me that the battery is dead. They tried charging it and it won't hold the charge. I never had problems with that battery. I wonder if they left something on. Can anybody recommend a good battery for my car? Should I just pick one up at Sears or Discount Auto parts? Also, what should I expect from the car now that I am replacing the battery. Thanks.
What a coincidence!! :D My car is still under warranty until Aug 26, so I wish I new exactly what it was so I can tell the dealer what to check and fix before it expires. I want to take it in again, but I don't know what to ask him to check so he can find the source. The car is running awesome except for this freakin' problem. Well if anybody can shed some light it would be great! Thanks,
OK here is what was replaced at the dealer, part number (2) 986-331-043-07 Trailing arm assembly. The mechanic described it as "replaced rear control arms". I obviously don't know what any of these parts do, but the clunking still there. Should that have done it? If somebody can explain how all this works I would greatly appreciated. Thanks. (I'm still learning). :)
I am curious because I just took my car in for the problem you are describing. There is definitely a clunk over bumps and when I corner (not fast) the car feels like it almost bounces/skips hard and the clunking is there. It does not skid (tires are less than a year old). The dealer replaced something, I can't remember what it was, but I have the paperwork at home. I want to say the controller arms (I may be way off)? Anyways, my point is that the problem is still there. I'll get the paperwork later. Thanks.
