Maybe just sell them? It's a small sample size, but my Facebook feed makes it look like this is the year of the BS Cayman.

MCS sold you non-remotes for your Cayman? They told me they refused to sell non-remote rears for Boxster/Cayman due to the proximity of the exhaust, and insisted upon remote resevoir.

They just started making them his month. Iím not sure why thatís be an issue I mean non remote reservoirs shocks just have a regular shock body like all other shocks. Itís probably less ideal than remote canisters but itís no different from stock.

Just out of curiosity, how do you choose spring rates?

i wasnít sure where to start but the JRZ shocks I had initially bought but decided not to go with had 600/700 springs and was on a cayman track car. I figured that kinda made sense given you need a bit more spring in the rear. Iím sure Iíll end up changing spring rates again later but Iíll start with this first and see how they work.

Finally got a chance to install the GT2 seats and Schorth GT3 6-pt harness today. Feels amazing to finally have seats in the car that properly hold you in.

Hated the fact that the seatbelt was just sitting there on the side bolster when not in use. Used these Jade Seatbelt Guides that I've use on my Recaro Pole Position seats in other cars and it worked great on the GT2 seats as well.



Also just noting from another post I found, this paint is a really good match for Stone Grey


Used it to have spare black rear speaker panels painted since we're going to have to cut some holes so I can get to the shock adjustment *****
