My throwout bearing chatters too, whether it's as bad or worse than this car is unknown. I'd have to hear it to compare it to mine.

Mine is so loud that a BMW master tech wanted to drop the oil...

I don't think I have a changer, I have an in dash single CD ('business' radio). I'd be interested if it would work since I plan to keep the Z long term.

Scratchy rear speakers in my 2007 Z4.

This was a minor nuisance until a road trip this weekend. Now the rear speakers scratch will pretty much all range of music, not just bass. Is this a simple DIY and is there a preferred speaker...

I found the OEM pump for $392 online and labor is about $500. I think I'll let them do it, although the diy is well written up. I just don't have the time and likely the tools.

Convertible top pump issues

Looks like my top motor is busted. Local shop quotes $500 for the motor and 5 hours labor...this seems high. I found the motor for $100 cheaper but is 5 hours reasonable labor?

I finally got a look, the inside convertible trim broke off from the 4 or 5 tabs that were holding it in. As far as it looks, all I need is the plastic piece that the fabric attaches to. I have no...

The inside plastic of the convertible roof is seperated on the driver's side. It just popped loose last night and wouldn't easily pop in, feels like a plastic tab snapped off or something. My son...

When I drop the top, I have to help it a little bit. I have to push up on the top to break it free of the car and then it operates normally. Closing isn't an issue.

Fuel is dirty, especially the crap at the bottom of a station's tank. You filter it out, the filter gets dirty, you need to replace the filter.

Given this new and disturbing information (tiptronic?) I now have to advise against the Boxster. The upside is that an auto Boxster will be easier to sell to a woman than 6spd.

I still don't see how you can lock the center console. All I see is a push button, no key hole on the latch.
