    New Boxster on the way

    I have a new 06 987S coming in any day now. I would like to know what I can expect from this car (problems & issues) from people who have lived with it and driven it daily. Does the top leak at all? I'm coming from an 03 M3 and after having driven the 987 S I was immediately sold. The only thing that has been troubling me is the issues with integrating an IPoD. My options:

    06 987S
    atlas grey
    black sport seats
    19' carrera classic
    wheel spacers, PASM
    sport chrono
    sport steering
    bose
    xenon

    Re: New Boxster on the way

    Only major bugaboos I have right now are the squeaks and rattles. I don't know if they've changed anything in '06 but the windstop will rattle (can't tell if you got that with your bose or not) most likely. The dealership has twice applied felt tape in various areas on my windstop to the point where it's actually a bit hard to unlatch now, but hey--it's not rattling anymore. Nice uh, "fix". :P

    There seem to be a lot of parts on the top that end up rubbing and squeaking. I get some creaking from my instruments and binnacle too. Those are the last two things bothering me on the car.

    Oh, there was the time I needed a new transmission too...

    Re: New Boxster on the way

    the car runs perfectly... the only disturbing thing are the rattles in the hood, too bad for a car of this price

    Re: New Boxster on the way

    Mine has been perfect for the almost 6K miles so far. The top has also been perfect even in the harsh conditions of a swedish winter. No need for a hardtop at all.

    Re: New Boxster on the way

    Nice spec - Atlas is fantastic.

    No issues to date (except SD wheels are an absolute nightmare to clean weekly ) but there is more windnoise from the rear edge of the doorseal in the 987 than my previous 986, and no doubt your M3

    You will enjoy every aspect of the ownership experience. Except the wait for delivery!

    The rattling windstop is a known bug and there should be a solid REAL fix to it. I had it on mine and it was really nervekilling. Took it to my dealer and the fixed it within 30 minutes. I didn't ask, but I think that they simply changed some parts.

    Other than that, I have/had absolutely NO rattles on my Boxy. And it doesn't even go "bing-bing-bing" when you don't wear your seatbelt.

    Re: New Boxster on the way

    No problems with leaking, or rattling - only very minor rattles, which seem to have died down the more miles I've put on (over 10k now). Hope you enjoy your car when it arrives.

    Re: New Boxster on the way

    Had my 2005 987S for almost a year with 12,000 miles on the clock now. No rattles squeaks whatsoever so to me its as solid and perfectly built as I expected.

    Only real BIG ISSUE so far: how to survive the wait time

    Re: New Boxster on the way

    i guess if your top is wet from the rain , you dont hear the rattles that much

    Re: New Boxster on the way

    Great options!!

    If you take a look at the rubber nubbin that the windstop sits on, I'll bet you'll see that they've added a small piece of felt tape. That has been Porsche's answer to the problem so far. I am eagerly awaiting any REAL fix that comes down the pike!

    Re: New Boxster on the way

    Nice spec, chrisapone. I was about to suggest heated seats as my favorite option when I realized where you're located

    My 987S is now 12 months old, with a little more than 10k miles, and no problems so far.

    Re: New Boxster on the way

    CONGRAS!!!
    05boxster 7000km
