    Opening the door (from inside) and seat belt warning

    I seem to have to pull the handle twice to get out of my new Boxster, is that right? and sometimes the window comes down then back up, then catches slightly when the door actually opens.

    Doesnt seem as easy as my old Boxster.

    and that damn seat belt alarm thing, 6mph! 15mph would make more sense - i have to take my seat belt off to open the gate to my flats car park, i'm not going to put it back on to drive to my space, and keeping below 6mph is just stupid.

    and finally, opening closing the roof - if you dont have your seatbelt on (even when stationary) when you change the roof the 'selt belt' message overrides the 'roof opening/closing' message so you dont know when it has finished - the old boxster had a seperate warning light for those.

    Apart from that I love the car, much better than the old one.

    Re: Opening the door (from inside) and seat belt warning

    Same for me, pull the door lever twice to get out (or push the button first on the dash).

    Oh, and why we're on the subject of little annoyances in a fantastic car - why does the CD player pause briefly when I clip and unclip the roof?

    Re: Opening the door (from inside) and seat belt warning

    yep, that's right!!

    Pinging drives me mad but does make me put my belt on....

    Re: Opening the door (from inside) and seat belt warning

    If it works like on the Cayenne, it might be related to the the automatic locking (which can be turned off): You need to pull the handle twice to open as long as you have not turned the engine off and removed the key (which will unlock the car). After removal of the key, you only need to pull it once.

    Re: Opening the door (from inside) and seat belt warning

    I always just press the unlock button on the dash now. Those handles dont feel that sturdy and I managed to catch the glass on the roof way too many times.

    Click the button first then the door opens no probs

    Re: Opening the door (from inside) and seat belt warning

    Its a safety feature!

    Not as easy when you have a passenger that just wants to get out as soon as you pull up

    Is your driving that bad?!!

    Re: Opening the door (from inside) and seat belt warning

    yeah - easiect way to unlock doors is to press the power locking button. This can be deactivated as there are 3 options - 1) no auto locking, 2) lock when ignition is turned and 3) lock at >5mph. Could be smarter though as SLK unlocks on the first pull.

    Re: Opening the door (from inside) and seat belt warning

    Are the options things I can change myself? I should get round to reading the manual a bit more really

    Re: Opening the door (from inside) and seat belt warning

    No, they have to be processed at the Porsche Centre. Mine originally came non-locking. I asked them to be activated at above 5mph, but they came back locking as soon as the ignition is turned. After some work on the alarm (see other thread) they now activate at 5mph (I love the 'clunk' as you drive away...)

    Only if you have PCM and Sport Chrono Package Plus. Otherwise beat your dealer over the head and get him to do it FOC on "goodwill" terms. The dealer should have given you the choice at delivery. Mine lock at 5mph, which I believe is the "default" setting and I am happy with that.

    Re: Opening the door (from inside) and seat belt warning

    you can get the dealer to change the door opening option. it only takes a minute. they can change a variety of settings on the key.
