  1. Looks great, I like the black on your base Boxster.
  2. I am considering changing my spark plugs in my MY99 Boxster 2.5. I have heard Beru plugs may be a better choice that Bosch, do you know the proper model # for the Beru plugs? Also, do you know if they have to be gapped or they can be installed out of the box? Thanks, Dave
  3. I agree with Chris, I just finished replacing my rotors and pads and I painted the calipers while I had everything apart. I used VHT High Temp caliper paint and it worked fine. A lot more prep work but I am happy with the results. Before: During: After:
  4. I have a MY99 and went with black to paint my calipers, I did not want to go red as mine is a base model. I also upgraded the rotors to slotted and grooved. Dave
  5. Sorry about that ... 99 2.5L non-S Thanks
  6. I am looking for the part numbers for the retaining clip, pin and cotter pin that hold in the brake pads? Thanks
  7. This board is Awesome! Thanks Viper for the excellent write up. I also have a 99 and have had a problem with the hood latch not work as well, after pulling the lever and hearing a very faint pop I had to stick my fingers between the hood and fender to get the hood up. I followed Vipers directions and I not only got the hood latch to work but now the light in the front trunk lights again!
  8. Where can I order these parts? Any help would be appreciated. Just click on the link at the top - Porsche Parts at Dealer Cost Loren, Thanks so much for your help.
