    The threads on the Boxter calipers are very susceptible to cross-threading damage, rendering the caliper unusable. Such is the condition of Betty's old Boxter calipers after the buyer's installer stripped the threads on the brake line hole in one of the two. I offered to repair them, and so I...

    Full and complete BBK for your B5/5.5. Less than 2,500 on pads and rotors, though over half of those were on TOTD Rally 2013. ;-) They will be that shiny and new looking. I am going to touch up and polish them before shipping. Everything you need to bolt on and stop like you drove...

    finally found a website that carries porsche brake calipers and the brackets so they fit on the car. the website wanted 435 ea for the calipers and a little under 180 for the bracket. however, with my new wheels and rotors being put on in the spring time, i feel like it would be weird to see all...

    I am thinking about designing a caliper adapter for the B6 so the Porsche 986 Boxter 4-pot calipers can be used to improve the front brakes. Currently it seems the only option for B6ers is an OEM BBK based on the very expensive R32 ATE calipers, which only have a single, albeit gigantic, piston...

    [Note to reader] I write both DIY summaries and project journals. The DIY summaries are literal, step-by-step guides to completing a project or repair/restoration on Passat parts, components or accessories. The project journals are more a chronicle of a drawn out process, with all of my...

    Our friends across the pond have four new individualization packages to choose from when they start ticking the option boxes for their new Boxster or Cayman, and while Porsche isn't offering any additional performance upgrades, the kit adds a bit more flavor to Stuttgart's entry-level...

    I posted this in Sipe's thread, but figured some other people might want to check it out. This is by far, my favorite Porsche of all time. If I can remember correctly, its a '56 body (feel free to correct me there, might be a '53), with a 2000 Boxter rear end, a 3.4L modified aircooled 993...

    so my sorry tale is already posted, where I ask about the idea of trading down from an a4 to a mini but now the question has changed... well its self-explanitory, a new '03/'04 fully-loaded MINI Cooper S, or a '00 or '99 Porsche Boxter? I realize they are different cars, but then I like...

    Choosing a convertible (BMW 330Ci VS Porche Boxter VS Audi A4 Cabriolet VS ???) between a fully loaded 330Ci and the Audi, I'm sure I'd prefer the Audi's interior, but w/o quattro, can it hold a candle to the drive of the BMW? (obviously I'd also have to wait until spring for the audi) The...
