Replacing Air and Cabin Filter on the Boxster

Since buying the Porsche Boxster S, I had driven it for at least a 1000 miles in the last 2 years. However, I had never changed the air filter or the cabin filter. The Boxster was sitting for a few weeks in a dusty area in Texas before I got it, so I decided to do this change and reduce the smelliness in the cabin as well.

This is one of the easier changes to do in the Boxster and requires no tools. I recommend purchasing the Hengst Air Filter E458L (Figure 14) and Hengst Cabin Filter E951LC (Figure 17) for this task. These are the OEM filters that Porsche uses on the 986 model cars and it is best to stick to OEM versions for a perfect fit.

Aluminum Skidplate Install on the Infiniti G35 Coupe

While doing the oil change on the G35 Coupe, I realized like several other folks on the internet, that the plastic skidplate or undershroud gets in the way of taking off the oil filter (Figure 1a). The plastic skidplate breaks after a while and mine was cracked and damaged. The bolts holding it were rusted too. I saw someone on reddit install an aluminum skidplate, so I bought one on eBay for $115 and decided to install it. The installation is really easy.

New tires for the Porsche Boxster S

While swapping the winter wheels and tires back to summer wheels, I discovered my rear tires were really bald (Figure 1) on the inside portion. This meant the car had a bad alignment and it needed new tires.

I ended up getting new tires for the car as I had a TireRack gift card, and the prices of tires there were much cheaper.

For the Boxster with stock OEM wheels you need 205/50ZR17 (Figure 3) for the front wheels and 255/40ZR17 (Figure 4). I purchased the Riken Raptor ZR A/S (all season) tires with these specifications.

Oil Change on the Infiniti G35 Coupe

Getting a stock G35 Coupe ready for the track and/or drifting, requires a lot of preparation. Given the time constraints, I plan to do the most important things first. The most important thing is to make sure that the engine has fresh engine oil. Doing an oil change on the G35 is quite easy, and I outline the steps here.

Infiniti G35 Coupe Resources

It has been two weeks since I have had the G35 Coupe but I have not even begun fixing its issues and performing basic maintenance. However, I have driven it about a 100 miles locally and it is a blast to drive. Last weekend, I went to a local autocross with my Miata, so could not spend time on the G35. However, I have taken Friday off this week to try fixing some issues.

But first, I needed to do research on the maintenance needed and am documenting it for myself here.
