    19"wheels with PASM or not ??

    We do not know if we are going to order the 19"wheels with or without PASM
    There is an interesting quote by Revvv

    You don't need PASM in a mid-engined, balanced, chassis in my opinion. It's about $2K in the States. Revvv



    We think the BoxsterS will be very hard with the 19"wheels so you need PASM to make the ride more comfortable for street use

    Re: 19"wheels with PASM or not ??

    I am having the 19" wheels on my Boxster and also don't know what to do for the best. My dealer first said yes have it with the 19" wheels, then he said don't because it only makes a "marginal" difference, now he says don't know, RC says have it. I drove a 997"S" with it and found it very comfortable in "normal" mode, not that uncomfortable in "sport" mode. Autocar says the ride "falls apart" in sport mode on the 997 road test, but the 997 is set up differently to the Boxster. It adds weight and it is something else to go wrong, even in a Porsche and no one else has yet to order it on a Boxster at my dealer. I am totally confused!

    Re: 19"wheels with PASM or not ??

    If you're confused, just get the 19'' wheels, no PASM and retrofit an aftermarket coilover kit (setup to your liking depending on the brand/type) later on. How does this sound? Just be careful with lowering the chassis too much!

    I have today taken your advice and added PASM to my order.
