  1. I had the same problem , spent a whole day with an aftermarket guy trying to fix it. Then he attached a small box to the battery of the car that fools the computer and lets it think it has the OEM light cunsumption. After this, no more problems, only cost $50 motoadve, can you please tell me the name/brand of the box, I would really appreciate this, as no one has been able to help me on this, not even my dealership, porsche tuner shops, no one! Also, how exactly do you connect it to the battery, thanks a lot bro.
  2. It drives pretty good, It's a little bit stiffer than before but not that much. Is softer than PASM "on". As with road expansion joints, I can feel them waaaay more, so as undulations, and on driveway ramps, I have to go sideways, I mean not exactly sideways but diagonal. I've taken it up to 150 and feels perfect. Hope this explains your question... Ohh and I guess that yes, it is driveable... :D
  3. Hay guys, I just lowered my car a bit more. I imagine you'll like pics... so here is one for now. not the best quality but you get the idea. Hope you like it

I had HID's, but they were a pain in the a.., I couldn't get rid of the "dipped lamp" message, I would really appreciate your help as I have my kit sitting in my closet.

  5. The tool provided with your car cannot be used to fix the angle, I've tried and it's to big, you need a smaller size. Go to your porsche dealer and tell them that the angle on the headlight is too low, they'll fix it. How did you installed HID's on your car?? I ask this because I installed them before and I got messages on my onboard computer telling me "left dipped lamp" and "right dipped lamp", and sometimes they wouldn't turn on at all. Thanks
  6. pics modified... Hope this helps! Alan
  7. thanks a lot vfxbox, I thought it was going to look better, I guess I might just leave it as it is, but thanx anyways! Alan
  8. Ok, to anyone looking to lower a PASM car, here is the thread which contains the pictures of my PASM equipped car lowered with cargraphic springs. Cheers.

  9. Ok, I posted 2 pics, one showing the white part of the taillight that I am talking about and another so someone can do the photochop. The white thing I am talking about is the reverse light (only), and I was thinking about tinting it, either a light black tint or something like that... just very curious how it will look, maybe good, maybe bad, but it may compliment the rear nicely. Thanx Alan vfxbox, that was not what I was talking about, but thanx for doing it because I now know that that looks horrible, above I described what I was thinking about. Thanx
  10. has anybody thought how it will look to tint the white stripe on the rear tail light? I'm just curious how it will look, if anybody can do a photochop it will be greately appreciated. Alan
  11. Ok, finally I was able to take some pics of my car after installing cargraphic springs in my PASM 987 S. Enjoy, feedback welcome! Before After
  12. Hi to everyone, I just installed sport spring on my 987 Boxster S a week ago, looks waaaaaaaaaaaaaaaay better. A little bit more stiff than stock, but not much. Lowered about an inch. Handling did improve. By the way, the springs were Cargraphic, and my car has PASM and works beautiful with it. Alan
  13. "britairdog" I test drove a cayman with PASM and H&R sport springs and the ride quality was like between sport and normal PASM mode, which means is not softer than stock, but not as hard as with the PASM activated, but when you activate pasm, then it gets really stiff, not for city driving buy good for highway driving, hope it helps. I personaly recomend either H&R's or Cargraphic's which are H&Rs but tuned to their specifications.
  14. do they even make wheel locks for the 20" techarts?? as of what I know they dont, thats why i didnt bought them. Anyway I'm going to ask at the dealership because I DONT want my wheels to be stolen!!! P.S. Pics should be posted within 4 days.
  15. I thought already about the car cover, but I'm waaay too lazy to put it on every night. As for the wheel locks on 18's of 19's, unfortunately I have the 20" Techarts, and I think they have no wheel locks, as the rear ones are 305-25-20. What I think I will do is to put the 3M film so they cant break my window, but then there is the windshield, or the soft-top, or if not, they will get angry they couldnt break into my car and scratch it or something like that. What I will sure be putting into my car is tinted window, and a microchip a frind of mine sells that you install inside the headl
  16. 2005 987 Boxster S I was at my apartment monday night, went to sleep, and at 6 am next morning the maintenance guy knocks on my door to tell me someone went into the basement garage (with security gates which requieres you a special ard to get in and out) broke my passenger window, stole my Valentine 1, sunglasses, cellphone, my collection of CD's, and some other random stuff, plus stole my regular halogen headlights (wich i put HID's on them 3 weeks ago) and scratched my center console. Broken glass was everywere on my car. I filled out a police report, called my insuranse, took 3 days f
  17. HI, I have a similar problem, when my car is cold and i start driving for the first 3 minutes, at exactly 3,000 rpm's i get a loud metalic noise from the right side of the car (in the right side vent), sounds exactly at 3,000, if you go 200 rpm below or above it will stop doing it. Just sharing my experience. Hope you (we) solve it.
  18. '987 Boxster S': By coilovers I take it that you mean shock absorbers? I called Tech9 and was quoted the option of just a change of springs, or both springs and adjustable shock absorbers. I think that you plan to fit both? The change in ride height is about 25mm in both cases. I will be very interested to hear what effect the changes have on ride quality and maybe you could post a picture. The prices given to me, (fitting extra), were £385 for springs only, £2750 for springs and shockers. Note these are UK pound prices. 'britairdog', yes, by coilovers I mean the springs and the shocks, th
  19. thanks to everyone, I went to the dealer about a week ago to have the problem solved, left the car 2 days, and when I picked it up the service advisor told me they replaced the shifter and that the problem was still there. He also told me that the mechanic thought that was the only solution and that he has no idea what else could be. My service advisor ended up telling me "you're gonna have to live with that". Next week I'll be going again but know I'm going to speak with the manager. Thanks!
  20. cant read the thread (Porsche TSB 3531), do I have to make a donation in order to see that thread? or is there a shortcut or anything. TIA
  21. I have a 987S with PASM and have been thinking of lowering the ride height, as the car seems to sit a lot higher off the road than my old 986 with sport suspension.A 2-3cm reduction would certainly improve the look of the car, although what it would do to the handling is unknown. I recently received a copy of 911 and Porsche World magazine-Jan 2006 edition. On page 9 is an article about a CaymanS conversion by TechArt which, amongst a description of a number of modifications, includes: "...Suspension too, is tweaked, with sport springs lowering the ride height between 25 and 30mm, and said
  22. Hi, I am new to this forum. I recently bought a 987 Boxster S, but recently found a problem. The shift knob when moved to the left or right, doesnt return to the middle (neutral, between 3rd and 4th), it stays where you move it, either left or right, and that is annoying as I get confused when shifting from 6th to 4th because sometimes I accidentaly shift to 2nd. If anyone could please tell me what the problem could be. Took it to the dealer, replaced the shifter under warranty and is still the same, service advisor told me that the mechanic could not tell what was wrong. Thanks in adv
