  1. Guards red is not the same as carrera red or garnet red. Dealer should have samples to look at. But, it's your car! Make it be your way!
  2. There are a lot of choices. It just snaps in easily. The main thing is put it in facing the right way. First time I met mine, it was in backwards. Look at the receiving part of plastic, look at the bottom of the wind blocker, it should be obvious which is front and which is back. There are clear plastic ones, etc., but, the Porsche plastic parts I've ordered so far are priced pretty reasonably. If the car doesn't have one, the receiving part will have to be installed. That's a very good picture above.
  3. If you are going to tour or use the car everyday and enjoy driving your car for several hears, you will want PCM, the nav is excellent, and does heads up on the 3rd gauge face in the cluster at the right time. If the car is mostly for sports carring, don't know why one would need a nav. As navs go, it's a very fine one. But, for autocross and scooting, you don't need it. So, depends on the use. It is a lot to pay for that option, so, think about your use case carefully! As far as the radio goes, well, have not heard the Burmeister, but, I can't imagine not knowing it's a boxster
  4. Can only answer on PASM and PTV. PASM - you want this, or the sport suspension if you really dig autocross and don't mind the firm ride all the time. PTV - you want this. Ever mess up and take an exit ramp just a bit faster than you should for you, especially downhill. PTV and SM to the rescue. The car will pivot around itself. I've felt PTV twice - once on a Laguna Seca lap, and once on a deserted highway with a downhill exit ramp with nearly similar conditions, EXCEPT, the ramp was banked out to throw the water to the outside. SM and PTV to the rescue. Sport Exhaust sound
  5. Nearly all the big tires and wheels will do this, especially when cold. It's not a high hop, just should feel like some jerkiness, or letting go / catching. It will do it if you go into a corner too fast, too. Called understeer. Find a physics guy to explain the theory. Worse with bigger wheel / tire, but, don't we like how they look?
  6. Go to a concours and watch any Boxster 2006 on in preparation - full category (if they have such a thing - sorry if not in Singapore), they will demonstrate it. Work hard to clean what you can in your Boxster. Then watch this video again. There is a whole lot of car in not that much space, but, it's not impossible. Ask around, there are a lot of people in Porsche Clubs that know how to do this. Amazing cars.
