It was January 2007. I had my Cayman S for four short months and I was about to break a promise I'd made to myself. A friend had asked me if I'd be willing to install a Borla exhaust system on my Cayman and write up an article on what I thought. At first I declined. I really didn't have the money to spend on something like this, and I had promised myself I wouldn't start down the slippery slope of vehicle modifications with my Cayman S, a road I'd been down before with poor results. I was sort...

Ok Guys, The three bucket washing process Pick a place in the shade to wash your car. Before you get started make sure that the surface temp is not too high a good rule of thumb is if can touch the car comfortably you can proceed. You take three 5 gallon buckets with three grit guards. Fill two of the buckets with cool plain water and the third one, add your favorite car wash shampoo while you are filling it with cool water. Avoid using hot or warm water it softens the wax or...

Properly breaking in your new brakes is essential to their continued performance and reliability, yet it's something that few people really understand. I've recently followed a very informative thread where several of our members were trading some pretty good information on this topic. I found the information was so valuable, that I thought it would be a good idea to archive it here as an article. Special thanks to all the members who contributed these really cool links: Bedding...

Let's face it, there are times when you just can't prevent the installation of a front license plate, which unfortunately comes with irreversible damage to the nose of your car. For me, it was tourist delivery that made it necessary for my front bumper to be drilled. This wouldn't be so bad if they didn't just blow screws into the plastic, but that's what they do, and the tension from those screws distorts the plastic around the hole into a volcano like head. Lucky for us, there are Bumper...

Article Addendum, August 14th, 2011. ATTENTION: After 25,000 miles with this product on my car I have experienced a serious problem with my original exhaust components. Please see this thread for more information. Based on these developements, I advise the addition of a stress relieving flex joint to the downpipes of this system. 3 You should see some of the looks I get when I tell people that I've changed the exhaust system on my two year old Porsche seven times since I bought it. I...

Caring for Microfiber Towels Don’t Mix With Laundry Do not mix the load with your usual laundry. Instead, make a laundry load comprised only of microfiber products. Remember that cotton and microfiber are not the same. Don’t Use Bleach or Fabric Softeners If you want to wash your microfiber towels in the washing machine, use only a mild detergent that does not contain bleach. Fabric softeners and bleach will both eliminate the static charges that make your microfiber so...

I remember it like it was yesterday. I’m referring of course to my first two weeks in my Cayman S. As one of the few Americans that had checked the ‘European Delivery’ option box, I had the rare opportunity to explore the limits of my new Porsche without the fear of legal complications. That’s right…. I was on the German autobahn, the A-31 to be exact, and I had just passed one of those nifty ‘No Speed Limit’ signs. I leaned into the throttle and let the speedometer climb. ...
