  1. FYI: https://www.strutking.com/products/Cayman-Clear-Engine-Cover.html
  2. Cayman TV: I can't find it. Has it been disabled or moved. Thanks. jD
  3. Awhile back, I bought a pair of gloss black ones from Kyle for my black 987.1 and still remain pleased with them. jD
  4. FYI, in addition to the radiator filler cap in the trunk of my 987.1, there is a second one on top of the engine that's accessible only after the engine cover is removed. I had this one fail last year which caused a massive coolant dump. A few months ago, the replacement cap failed, which caused another coolant dump. Fortunately for me, my service adviser got the second replacement cap and coolant, plus labor, covered under a parts warranty. The part number for the "closure cap" was 996-106-447-04.
  5. I think I was wrong about the size. It's more likely a 4mm or 5mm nut. Just take one with you when you go to the shop so they can match it.
  6. If it's an 8mm flange nut, most any bicycle shop or motorcycle shop will probably give you one for naught.
  7. From page 254 of my owner's manual (emphasis added): "Apply a thin coat of Optimoly TA (aluminum paste) on the thread and between the bolt head and movable spherical cap ring. The bearing surface of the spherical cap facing the wheel must not be greased." There's a picture on that page of my manual showing the two places where the anti-seize is to be applied to each bolt, but I can't figure out how to attach it here. jD
  8. Had 5mm spacers installed on my 987.1. Couldn't see any difference. The only difference I could feel was that my wallet was considerably lighter.
  9. My owner's manual says this on page 140: "The sockets and thus the connected electrical accessories function even if the ignition is switched off or the ignition key is withdrawn. If the engine is not running and the accessories are switched on, the vehicle battery will be discharged. Do not operate additional accessories for more than 5 minutes when engine is off."
  10. I remain pleased with the H&R Sport Spring set, https://flat6motorsports.com/products/h-r-sport-springs-987-cayman-cayman-s, that was installed together with Bilstein B6 dampers, front and rear. My C-S is lowered between 2 and 3 inches at most. Wheels are 18" Champions.
  11. If you are after rifle bolt action, which the OEM short shift doesn't provide, you'll need the Numeric shifter cables.
  12. The OEM short shift kit was the first modification I had made to my 987.1 and remain as pleased with it 6 years later as I was the first time I drove with it. jD
