I have these in my Cayman R and at first I was lukewarm then I got used to the upright position and found them really comfortable. You'll get all your money out when you're done with them, or take...

Yeah, I think you'll be fine. I've said it before, my 987.1 Boxster S is something like 95 percent of the driving experience of my R and it cost me about $24K with tax. I paid $60K for my peridot R...

It really doesn't sound like a transmission problem so much as a slop in the shifter and cables problem. There are many threads about that on the forum. It is a very subjective issue, but there are...

Another vote for the FF1 Delrin knobs. I had the aluminum one in my Boxster for a couple years, and you always have to put something over it or ouch upon re-entry. The Delrin knob is meaty and just...

Doesn't sound normal. My '07 Boxster S with 54K shifts just fine without the problem you've encountered. Putting it in neutral like suggested above may ameliorate the issue, but I'd have it checked...

On the GT3 master cylinder, a friend of mine from the track told me he installed it on his Cayman R and didn't like it because it put the brake pedal too high when he squeezed it hard, so he couldn't...

There isn't a 20 to 30K difference between an S and an R in terms of driving enjoyment. My Boxster S with a nice exhaust and the X73 suspension is virtually the same drive as my Cayman R for...

That makes sense, but IMO, you introduced another piece of metal that can shear off in an impact and impact with the nearest object, your head. So to me, it's not worth it, but it's your car and your...

It's not the padding I'd be concerned about, it's what would happen if you actually flipped the car. I think you'd be far safer with the original rollover hoops and without the home made cage.

And while BAT is great for a lot of models to get pricing data, they have only sold a few Rs, and never one with the right options. So to me, the BAT prices are unreliable right now, unlike the...

The difference is, you can get a GT4 any day of the week in whatever color you want because they were essentially flipper cars. The R was flipped, if at all, a year or so after it was brought out and...

For PCA there isn't any the first time you take a car to the track with a group. You will need to download one of their tech forms and go to one of several authorized inspection providers. I use Auto...

I can't because my kid's graduating college, but next week on May 14 the Rally Sport Region PCA has a day at Waterford Hills. I'm a member and the RCR track days are great.

Crap like that is exactly why I tend to stick to the more established organizers. I was probably with 3 Balls when they were teething a few years back. In my few days with them, I saw a Lotus that...

The steering feel on 981s is very different. Drive one and see how you feel about it before committing.

The TPMS is probably not transferable. I know that the 987.1 and .2 are not compatible...

Find a nice 2012 Cayman R and call it a day. The steering feel alone is worth the trouble to find it over a 981 and its not going to really depreciate on you.
