Q - Why do I have to login to read the Cayman Register forums? Most
other forums can be read without logging in.
We respect the privacy of our members and recognize that many of them do not
want to share their Porsche hobby with the entire world. For this
reason, and many more, we have chosen to keep our forums private. To

Q - Do I need to own a Cayman to join the Cayman Register?
No. We encourage all PCA members who have any interest in the Cayman
to join us.
Q - Is the Cayman Register owned and/or controlled by Porsche?
No. The Cayman Register is part of the Porsche Club of America (PCA).
The PCA is 100% independent, as is the Cayman Register.
Porsche does recognize and support the PCA in many ways. You may see
this in the fact that they allow us to use their logos, trademarks, photos
and videos. The use of these materials is granted under a licensing
agreement between Porsche and the PCA. Porsche also provides access to technical resources,
historic data and connections to many departments inside Porsche.
Because of this support and relationship you will find an extraordinarily high level of
expertise and accuracy in the information shared inside.
Q - Will the Username and Password that I use at www.PCA.org work here?

installation that requires you to sign up here as well if you'd like access.
If you'd like to use the same user name here, feel free to enter that name

Q - Will my e-mail address be spammed if I join the Cayman Register?
No. We never share your e-mail address with anyone. We do
however send targeted e-mails from time to time. For example, if there
is a cool event taking place, we might send a message to all
members in that area to make them aware of it. Or, if there is something
exciting happening at the Cayman Register, we might send you a message to
call it to your attention.
On average, we send about 6 messages a year to our members. We
understand if you don't want to receive any e-mails, so we do give all
option to opt out of all communications.
Q - Do you allow vendors to post and/or run group buys
inside the Cayman Register?
No. The Cayman Register is 100% commercial free. This ensures
the highest level of integrity and objectivity. The Cayman Register
is like a private club house for Cayman enthusiasts. If a member
shares a testimonial, you can be sure that it's honest, unbiased and without
Q - I'm not one of those internet guys that spends time in online forums.
Is there any other reason I'd want to join the Cayman Register?
Yes. Many members join to be part of our mailing list, so they can be
notified if something big is happening in the Cayman world. Throughout the
year we may notify members about free giveaways, special events and/or
invitations or breaking news. We don't contact our members very often,
but when we do it's always valuable information.
Q- During registration I was asked for my Cayman's VIN. Do I really
need to provide this...?
You don't need to, but we strongly encourage you to. Your VIN will
remain a private part of your user profile. We often use VINs when a member
asks a technical question, because the Porsche Technical resources that we have
access to can narrow searches when a VIN is provided. We may also use
your VIN to identify and contact you if we discover an issue that might
effect your car.
Q - I've seen Caymans on the road with Cayman Register
window decals on them. How do I get one of those?
We send these out members after they register with us.
It's our "Thank You" for joining and it helps our members show that they
belong to this special group. Please allow 2 weeks for delivery.
If you've gotten a new Cayman and need a new decal, please
us a private message and let us know. We'll get a new one out to
you in our next mailing.
Q - I love what I see here and want to make a
donation. How can I do that?
That's very flattering. This place has been created by,
and is run by passionate volunteers. We are very proud of the Cayman
Register and glad that you value it, but we absolutely cannot accept your
donations. The PCA is a non-profit club. We do what we do for the love
of our hobby and for the collective benefit of our fellow members. If you
really want to give back, please do so by contributing an article or
valuable reply in our forums.
Believe me when I tell you that your appreciation goes a
long way. I encourage you to write a "Thank You" post to the Cayman Register
team in our Website
