Hi Guys, I am a new member of this community and I am very happy to be here.
My name is Mathias and I just bought my very first car. I am university student so I wanted a cool, sports car and as I live in Dubai, the weather is warm so a convertible was ideal. I have therefore just bought my first car, the Porsche Boxster, 2006. As this is my first car, and I have bought it as the 3rd owner. I have a lot of questions about how I should maintain the car, and hope you guys can help😎🏎
So first of all, it’s a Porsche Boxster in a beautiful red, with a black soft top, from 2006 that has driven approx. 80,000 km.
it has a beige interior.
1) the paint inside the car has scratches and shows the black color under the beige coating. How can I fix this?
2) the speakers and radio signal is very poor and I want to be able to play music via Bluetooth and aux, is this possible?
3) is it possible to set up Cameras in the car, for parking?
4) there are scratches on the exterior, and I took it to the Porsche center, and they said they do not have a perfect match to this color as they don’t make it in this specific red anymore. Is there anything I can do?
5) the leather inside is looking a little bit worn, is it possible to fix this up?
6) lastly, is there any mods, DIY upgrades or accessories you recommend I to add to this 2006 Boxster?
Need some help finding a part number, and for the matter, the name of the part! The picture just shows the passengers side of a piece that surrounds the dashboard (I think its all one part, anyway). It's between the windshield and the dash. Does anyone know what this part is called and what the part number may be? This is for 2001 996 Carrera.
Hi, it seems the sticker with vehicle information on my Cayenne is damaged. Was looking for interior color code, to buy perfect match touch up paint. In car sticker is damaged, on vehicle hand book information pack, there is no interior color code. Any one can help please?
I bought a beautiful 2000 Boxster S a couple of years ago, and now the leather has shrunk in two places and is on its way out in a couple of others. I have purchased two cow hides, one black and one graphite gray and planned to do the door panels and dash myself, and have my local car upholstery guy do the seats.
Has anyone ever recovered the door panels with new leather?
It appears that the door panels are plastic welded or plastic riveted together. I was hoping that the door panel could be disassembled, but, it doesn't appear the be the case.
Has anyone ever done this before? I'd love some tips or tricks to make my life easier, maybe pictures....... At this point, it looks to be a pretty straight forward job, albeit difficult if the panels cannot come apart and be reassembled.
Also, is there anyway to remove the cover for the airbag and put it back together? I bought some absolutely beautiful new leather, and it is leaps and bounds better than the original, but, it appears that these are covered in leather first, and THEN assembled and the plastic "rivets" melted after the leather was put on the pieces. Is that true?
Any tips or tricks would be appreciated.
I have searched and searched this forum and the Internet but can't seem to find anyone else with my issue. Last week, I got in the car and the A/C came on full blast, but no air came out of the vents. I turned it off and then back on a few minutes later and it worked. It kept working the next several days and then it did it again.
Now it has died completely. When I turn the fan speed to max, a tiny bit of cool air comes out, but I can barely feel it. The 2 A/C & Heat fuses are fine and there are no codes in the CEL. I have the classic foam in the duct issue and worry that it's clogged the fan, but I can't hear the fan starting at all, but I do hear the A/C turn on and some other electronic/mechanical noises when I turn the fan on or off with the controls.
Does anyone have any idea what might be wrong? As a Floridian with 90+ degree days, your help is much appreciated!
