  1. You need a 2008/9 module, which you should have with a 987.2. If you want a 991/992 wheel you need a module AND a dongle from GPSadaptors. The CDR24 stock headunit can't use the buttons apparently. I added a Connects2 uni-swc.5, to do the CAN-bus to Headunit comms.
  2. EBay for the wheel, and a Qld breaker for the airbag. If you don't need buttons, you'll not need the new control module, but you will need coding or the horn doesn't work.
  3. Also finally fitted my shift lights, and hardcoded my Valentine one (just in time for WA to push legislation banning them)
  4. Just thought I'd post about a little lockdown project I've done. Got annoyed using one of the clip on aftermarket stereo remotes, and an IR repeater on the awful triangle style steering wheel. Took a lot more effort than I expected. And several attempts when things wouldn't work. Sourced a manual, multifunction wheel from a later 997. Airbag from a Panamera. Steering wheel control module from a 997.2 911 (when the 997.1 version doesn't speak to later steering wheels) Connects2 uni-swc.5 (to connect the aftermarket headunit to the CAN-bus). All programmed via a Foxwell 510 Elite.

    964 wheels on 987

    It is, I'll be looking at matching skirts at some point if postage allows .. may see what this years Tax Refund looks like (probably end up owing them again, knowing my luck).
  6. Well, I've done it, with the aid of spacers. 7mm on the front and 25mmm on the rear. BBS RS GT, 18" 8j ET50 fronts and 9.5j ET48 rears. New AD08r tyres, 245/40 and 265/40 (as 235s were not in Australia, and the 265s were v low stock).
  7. I've been looking into this too. The main issue for me is I'd like something "Porsche looking" for the gauge. I've spare needles from the stock fuel/water gauges, if I could find a dual gauge with white face. But dual analogue oil pressure/temp seem to be fairly lacking. A guy in the US, I think, put a gauge into the chrono spot. https://www.planet-9.com/987-cayman-and-boxster-chat/23590-should-cayman-have-oil-pressure-gauge-5.html I had one of these in black/red that looked good in my S2000, but I don't think it suits the 987. This with a white face would at least look semi stock. https://www.msar.co.uk/auxillary-gauges/racetech-dual-mechanical-oil-pressureoil-temperature-gauge.html Or SAAS do a dual .. but it's got the water Temp logo, and not it white. https://www.supercheapauto.com.au/p/saas-saas-dual-oil-pressure-water-temperature-trax-gauge---black/525636.html

    For commuting and daily use, I'd be happy with a MT (even over a PDK). But as a toy, PDK/MT would be prefered. I think for the traffic crawl, early PDK isn't the friendliest on clutches. The 987.2 has less bore score issues apparently, DFI (so extra HP) and PDK option. If I could have justified the cost, I'd have gone for this.
  9. Finally got a hold of a 987 cluster for mine to replace the glass. Would this LCD be swapable?
  10. Original speedo clear plastic was scuffed and cracked in parts (which really showed up when wearing polarized sunnies). Pulled apart a spare cluster, and swapped the parts over. Was something that's been bugging me for a while.
  11. Think there are 987 dash parts on eBay (from Germany) .. should not be too hard to pull a part and resolder a new LCD screen in. I can't see the LCDs now. https://www.ebay.com.au/sch/m.html?_ssn=exotic-parts&LH_PrefLoc=2&_from=R40&_trksid=m570.l1313&_nkw=987&_sacat=0
  12. Good stuff. I've had a few quick cars over the years, but never done a qtr mile .. Trackdays are more my thing. But when I had an HSV, all the owners were big into evenings down the Motorplex. Something to be said about a big HP car with an auto box. Very repeatable.
  13. For sure. We recently had a Euro holiday, and she suggested Stuttgart and the Merc/Porsche museums. It must be the Mechanical Engineer in her. Ahh, I knew it was coming, but I didn't expect it to be finished then. No specific info on the camera, but the photographer has a site : TheSportsPhoto.com.au, on there he mentions d500 / d800 Nikon, and a few Sigma Lenses (500mm prime).
  14. A mate sold a load of original Transformers when the new movies came out. Paid the deposit on his house. I've a load of old Star Wars toys, probably 100s. Defo not 1000s. All played with and scuffed up. I lost loads of toys after my parents split and I moved a lot. They were either charity shopped or went to young cousins etc.
