Ran into a similar problem a little over a year ago in my 981; but mine was on literally all the time, even with the ignition off. I had to pull the fuse to get it to turn off.

I'm sure it's a...

The Spyder does seem to be truly in a market of its own. Now that it's essentially the same car as a GT4 with a removable top, it will cater more to hardcore enthusiasts that maybe only drive it on...

Yes.

Possible caveat if your car is equipped with carbon ceramic brakes. Otherwise, GTS is just an options package, brakes not being any different than the S.

Everybody is suggesting PSE as a mainstay for "must have" options, but I'd drop it down to "nice to have". It's arguably one...

No worries but also keep in mind that I have not driven a car with PTV; it might be a significant difference and worth the extra effort in the long run. I'm merely suggesting that PTV is not a...

The suspension components are identical. I would have to change the tires to drive it in snow, so I choose to leave it in the garage if it's colder than 40 degrees. There are a few folks on here who...

I haven't driven around NYC, but I'm frequently in DC and I don't have a problem.

For reference, I had the same concern. I had a 2015 M4 before my current 981 Boxster GTS. It was completely stock...

Currently my 15 BGTS is my "daily"; although I steal my wife's Macan S for commutes into DC or Northern Virginia as I know I'll likely be sitting in traffic (I don't have a daily commute).

My JLC is the Master Ultra Thin Moon (silver dial), and my Explorer II is the polar dial. They're the crown jewels in my "collection"- for now. Funny you say that watches are less expensive than...

Never told you to sell the Z, in fact because you insist on keeping it is why I made the watch suggestion in the first place. (Also I was projecting because I'd love to have $70k to drop on a watch,...

So I know it isn't the point of the thread, but it has devolved at this point and some stories should be straightened out because things just don't add up.

And hell no it's not a factory color. In that pic it looks painted, not wrapped.

This is an essential cleaning and maintenance regimen, but to be clear it does absolutely nothing for the existing creases.

Mine has them as well, but also some spots where it is actually worn to...

I've heard that this is an issue with S2000s, particularly those left outside for most of their lives, but is it really a thing for 981s? Serious question, not rhetorical.

I forgot about that! Mine came with a really nice hardcover book, a pen, and a meaningless card that I used to keep in my wallet anyway.

That said, I think that's a fair valuation for CPO, and consistent with other things I've seen on this forum. Having...
