problem details
1997 Porsche Boxster - Manual Transmission 100,515 mi,
clunck sound when shifting between 1st & 2nd
2002 Porsche Boxster - Manual Transmission 45,000 mi,
When shifting in reverse sometimes I hear a clunk.
2008 Porsche Boxster - Manual Transmission 6,200 mi,
I find the quality of the interior below the quality of a 2005 987 I ownes, including the plastic look and feel of the steering wheel as well as the easily worn handle on the handbreak(present after less than 5000 miles) dealer refuses to accept this is not normal wear and tear, plastic cover material on door handle seems to peel rather easily. And of course the WORST stereo in a $60,000., no auxiliary, much less ipod connection and no aftermarket solution offered by dealer, (price in Puerto Rico of base model), in any car worthh more than $20,000.
