If you can share a few things about your ownership of the Porsche 718 Boxster/Cayman, what would it be? The most liked or hated, share them with every one I am sure you won't be the only one.
Wait, you are going to get rid of the car? I'm keeping mine forever - until it totally dies in 50 years!Most liked: quickness, chassis dynamics, ride/handling equation, design, comfort, engine flexibility, manual transmission; In short, everything
Most disliked: have to remember to always hit the auto engine shutoff button; should be an option that keeps the shutoff dead until I get rid of the car
Considering my history with cars, it would be disingenuous for me to say that I will keep this car 50 years. After all, look what's coming:Wait, you are going to get rid of the car? I'm keeping mine forever - until it totally dies in 50 years!
I'm actually really glad those items are not standard. I don't want them, and wouldn't want to have a higher base price for features I don't want and wouldn't use.Dislikes: I wish some (of what I consider to be basic) features were standard. Keyless entry/start. Lane change assist.
Does that not work for the U.S market then? Because in the U.K it does, you just hold the open or close button down.[/QUOTE]"I wish I could open and close the roof with the key fob. I know there is an aftermarket solution so I may look into that".
No, that does not work in the US.[/QUOTE]Does that not work for the U.S market then? Because in the U.K it does, you just hold the open or close button down.
Seconded. I did not want Entry & Drive specifically because of the security risk it represents. Thieves have been using transponders/repeaters to mimic the NFC that such keyless entry systems use for years. My current car does not have keyless entry, and it's saved it from being broken into at my condo building twice in two years.I'm actually really glad those items are not standard.

That's bizarre, is it due to some sort of safety legislation in the U.S that it doesn't work? It was also a feature on my previous 981 & the revelation that U.S spec cars don't do that has somewhat surprised me. My wife's old TT rag top & A4 cabriolet also had exactly the same feature (We do rather like our soft tops & like to have at least one between us).[/QUOTE]No, that does not work in the US.
I am hoping to get my Boxster late next week and wrapping the chrome-like dash and centre console trims are the second item on my to do list. Ordered some samples already, but holding on ordering the actual vinyl sheets util I see the real colour of the seats (two-tone bordeaux-black).The internal chrome dash trim is not my favorite. Couldn't justify the cost of the brushed aluminum option. Has anyone tried the 3M vinyls textured wrap for trim pieces? From some web images I've seen it seems to come up very well but it in person it might be a different thing. It seems like a diy job also.
