operating temperature

When I purchased the car the previous owner had installed custom screens over the air intake scoops on the front of the car. He said they didn't affect operation or temp. After driving the car regurally and putting on 1200 + miles it seems to be ok. Temperature gauge comes up to the 180 mark with the needle settling out on the Zero fo the 180 and it holds there. I would guess the water temp is around 195 - 200 at that point given the next mark is 250. I removed them to see if it would make a difference and it does not.

Pittsburgh area PPI recommendation

Looking for a recommendation of a reputable shop in the Pittsburgh area that can perform a thorough PPI on a 2015 Boxster GTS. Your insight and assistance is appreciated.

Why are PCA events so outside the reach of regular working people?

This isn't really a technical question, it is, in fact more an organizational question.

I've attended zero events in my region for two reasons.

#1, they are primarily of no interest to me. Not a Wine fan.

#2, the times of cars and coffee events are ludicrous. Those of us who work for a living can't simply take the day off to go buy a bad coffee.

It would be great if our leadership were real working people instead of lawyers and politicians with other people's money to burn. My Porsche

2003 Boxster S Driver's window

I recently acquired a 2003 Boxster S.  The driver's side window goes up and down when I raise or lower the top.  The driver's side windo does not lower when I unlock or open the door.with the top up.  While the door is open I can gently push down and lower the window.  When I close the door the window will raise to the proper postion.  I question if this is regulator propblem as it seems to function properly when raising or lowering the convertable top.  Could this be a door switch issue?

Thank you for your good support.
