The thing is- it is so easy to throw a wrench on the strut brace bolts to make sure they are tight. It is a no brainer to try as you have nothing to lose if it doesn't work.

I think you would have to swap out to another product to get what you want. I would recommend the USA Spec unit(USA SPEC PA12-BMW Interface Adapter) as it is relatively cheap($135) and will give you...

Wow! You have been listening to that sound for 4yrs and the dealer couldn't figure it out? Too bad you didn't google it years ago... Mine had this issue shortly after I bought it in 09 and a quick...

I think you are off on the year as they didn't make a Z4M in 2005. Is your car an '06? I have not heard of your issue before, but I would check the battery first. How old is it? Is it holding a...

I wouldn't think you need to go through all of this to find out if your car has BT as if you hit the R/T button it will either show "searching..." on the radio display, or not. You could also put...

I wanted to swap the stock inner brake lights for LED, but they don't seem to be user removable. Kind of silly design considering how easy the outer brake light bulbs come out.

Did you notice the parts fall out of your car? I have yet to have a soft top issue on my 06. Try ECS tuning or Tischer for the parts.

Everyone in the thread who has experienced the issue says this is what it sounds like. I guess we just need to OP to return and tell us swapping to the FM oil solved it.

I love the new Boxster. I don't think I would trade it for a Z4MC(even one as nice as you had). I suspect the seller will contact you in a bit and accept your offer.
