    Does anyone in Perth area know this 928?

    I don't know this car specifically (it looks nice in the pics). Reading the blurb, it says it's been looked after by RennSport Motors. I do know the owner/mechanic of RennSport and he is meticulous. He owns a couple of 928's himself and knows the model intimately. Maybe call RennSport and ask what they know about the car?

    iCarsoft Por II

    Has anyone actually bought an iCarsoft Por-II? Can you please tell me if it can read over-rev data (ignitions range x in Durametric terms)? I'm struggling to justify the initial outlay for a Durametric Pro. I know the enthusiast version would be OK for now (I only have two Porsches). I don't really need the advanced coding features of the Pro and the price for the Enthusiast is a little more palatable, but I don't want to be restricted to only three VIN's. The iCarsoft Por II appears to have most of the features that I want, but I can't find definitively whether it can read the over-rev data. That feature is something I would really like to have.
  3. I battled with an issue with the convertible top similar to yours for a couple of weeks until I bit the bullet and went to my independent Porsche mechanic who re-calibrated it. Took all of ten minutes (most of that was waiting for the PIWIS to boot). This fixed it and my soft top has been perfect ever since. I suspect yours just needs calibration too.

    996 nearly

    996 C2 Original Front tyre size is 205/50R17, Rear 255/40R17. 225/45R17 is fine. There is only 0.39% difference in diameter between 205/50 and 225/45.

    boxster 987.1 key stuck on ignition off

    The ignition switch is a common failure point on 986's (I had similar weirdness until I replaced mine) and I suspect the 987's are likely to eventually experience the same problems. It's a pain to replace yourself, but can be done if you are are handy with a wrench (it would also be very handy if you are a contortionist!).

    And another option... I use http://www.autoglym.com/products/products/convertible-soft-top-clean-and-protect-complete-kit on my 986 soft top. It works really well.
