  1. Can't quite believe what I started here - car covers coming out the woodwork from all over! Wish I was on commission......
  2. You certainly can. Drop me a PM with your address. No problem. Drop me a PM and we'll take it from there. Sorry Roy. Pipped at the post.
  3. Since selling the 3.2 recently, I have a couple of IB Whale Tail car covers for sale: The Sahara cover has been used only once, and is like new. The Voyager has been used several times, but is in good condition. <LINK> £45 each including courier delivery, or £80 for the pair. Instrument LEDs. I bought these ages ago, but never got round to fitting them. They were in the packet shown, so I think that's where they came from. Free to anyone who can make use of them. Unopened 1 Litre bottle of intensive screenwash. This was only £8 to buy, but
  4. I have the disks. I'll PM you with details.
  5. I do it the "Porsche way" by entering the activation code with my PIWIS tester. The guy on eBay has worked out how to enter it by running a script via the USB port. By all accounts he seems to have it sorted, and you won't find a cheaper way of doing it. I pay £85 for the code itself.
  6. Do you mean 3.7 or 3.4? 987.1, 987.2, or 981? Drop me a PM with the details and your email address, and I'll send a copy of the torque settings from the workshop manual.
  7. I use Ethomix from Frosts. https://www.frost.co.uk/ethomix-corrosion-inhibitor-additive-ethanol-protection.html No idea if it is better or worse than any other, but my indy recommended it.
  8. I need new specs. Here are the 964 and 993 SITs. <964 Service Information Techniks> <993 Service Information Techniks>
  9. Here is an interesting Porsche Training Manual for aircooled engine repairs (1984-on): https://mega.nz/#!H5QwzI6K!mz7S8AK7pcES4_uQjiTuijqgJB9DOwNvW1bGlws7-mk
  10. I have a few for 9x6 and newer, but nothing for the 964 or 993 I'm afraid.
  11. I just came across the Service Information Techniks for 911s from 1975 to 1989, which are useful reference documents. You can download them from here: https://mega.nz/#!bkol3KZZ!9N9ycsSsK_JLQFTOkqVedK1Z2QkjRyGBgSy6Z2PauyY
  12. They softened the dampers on the Boxster/Cayman from the 2nd generation 987 onwards, so people tended not to spec PASM. I had a 987.1 Cayman with PASM (a must-have on a gen1 IMO), and a non-PASM 987.2 Cayman, and the ride was very similar. If I was going for a 981 without PASM, I would want 18" or 19" wheels, rather than 20's, which most cars seem to have. However, that's for road use, as I don't do regular track days. Good luck with the search - they are terrific cars. With the 911 getting bigger and bigger with each iteration, I think the Boxster/Cayman has become the true sports car in
  13. It would be a huge amount of work to retrofit PASM. Apart from the hardware (shockers, springs, sensors, control unit, and switch) it would be a mega wiring exercise. This will give you an idea of what you would have to connect up: It would also need coding with a PIWIS tester. That's assuming an activation code is not required. Factory approved retrofits like cruise, sports exhaust, sport chrono, etc. need an activation code to enable those functions. Best to keep looking for one which has it fitted.
