Porsche Cayman How To Program the Garage Door OpenerProgramming your garage door opener to your 981 Porsche Cayman or Boxster can be tricky and in some cases there are additional steps that need to be taken.  In our latest How To video, Mrs ShockerRacing shows the complete process of how to reset and then program a Liftmaster 8500 Garage Door Opener to the Homelink System in our 2016 Porsche Cayman.  You may have seen our previous video that only showed the first steps to programming on the basic garage door openers but this video shows the additional step using the "Learn" feature on our new garage door opener.

Porsche Cayman 981 Racing Yellow ShockerRacingFor those of us that own Porsche Cayman's that came factory equipped with the garage door opener buttons or homelink system, ShockerRacing took the time to make a nice step by step video showing the programming process.  This is a fairly easy process to complete but it is a lot easier to check out the video than read the process in the owners manual.  We invited Mrs. ShockerRacing out this time to walk us through the process since no one wants to see my ugly mug!

Racing Yellow Porsche Cayman 981 with O.Z. Leggera WheelsWe recently swapped out the hideous stock 18" wheels that came on our 2016 Porsche Cayman 981.  We opted for a set of Gloss Black 19" O.Z Leggera HLT Wheels.  The fronts are 19x8.5 and the rears are 19x10's.  For tires we opted for a set of Bridgestone Potenza S-04 Pole Positions.  The front tires are 235/40/19's and in the back we went with the 285/35/19's because the 275's weren't quite wide enough for the 10" wide rear wheels.  The 285's fit the wheels perfectly and give a much more aggresive look from behind. With this setup we opted for a full set of new Tire Pressure Sensors so that we could keep the stock wheel and tire set complete.  After mounting the new set on our Cayman it was necessary to reset the TPMS so that it would connect to the new sensors.  Hit the jump to see the video showing the process.

How to install LED Clear Side Markers on the Porsche Cayman 981I installed the Porsche upgraded LED Clear Side Markers on the ShockerRacing 2016 Porsche Cayman 981.  This is a genuine Porsche part that I ordered to upgrade from the standard amber(orange) side markers that are a terrible eye soar on the Cayman and Boxster models.  The following video shows how to remove and replace the side markers along with showing how they look lit up and flashing for the turn signals. I ordered the LED Clear Side Markers from Suncoast Parts for $115 and it was definitely worth the money to get rid of the factory orange side markers.

Fabspeed Exhaust Porsche Cayman Black TipsI have been eyeing the Fabspeed Supercup Race Exhaust since I ordered my Racing Yellow 2016 Cayman last spring and I finally called up the guys at Fabspeed Motorsport right around Thanksgiving. After working with them and talking to John over there I decided that the Race Exhaust was going to be the right fit for my 6 speed 2.7L Cayman. John warned me that the Supercup exhaust was very aggressive sounding but from all of the videos I had seen it was the only exhaust that sounded the way I feel the Cayman SHOULD sound...

Porsche Cayman 981 Hood Crest RemovalI recently needed to remove the hood crest on the ShockerRacing 2016 Porsche Cayman 981 in order to properly wrap the hood(See the hood wrap article here).  Removing the emblem was very easy to do, but when you are unsure of the exact procedure the process can be a bit scary.  I thought it might help some people to do a quick write-up on the procedure.  You will just need some basic tools for this:

Porsche Cayman 981 with a Custom 3m Vinyl WrapSince placing my order for a 2016 Porsche Cayman 981 back in March, I have been dreaming of how I would begin the customization process.  I already knew that tinting the windows would be one of the first mods completed as they always enhance the appearance of almost any car and are relatively inexpensive. I have always been known to be a little flashy with my cars, and I really like them to stand out in a crowd.  With vinyl wrapping being all of the rage these days, I have been tossing around all sorts of ideas including everything from just wrapping the roof to completely wrapping the hood, roof, and rear decklid.  At some point over the last few months, I came up with the idea of leaving a driver stripe down the entire top of the car.

Kim with the Porsche Cayman 981 in Palm SpringsMy wife, Kim, and I have been intending on picking up a Porsche for some time now. Our plan was to find a used 987 Porsche Cayman S sometime in the spring of 2015. Once we found the perfect car we were going to take it on a road trip from Chicago and head south and then towards the west coast.  We test drove one around the beginning of March that happened to be a rat.  It was obvious that its previous owner was the wrong owner and this scared us.  From there we went straight to a Porsche Dealer to look at the new 981 Cayman.  The next day, March 16th, we ordered a brand new 981 Cayman from Porsche Exchange.
