Hello everyone, I bought a 987.2 Boxster S about 3 weeks ago and I'm loving the car like no other. I'm 64 years young and have owned 15 cars before "Snapper", and without a doubt this one is my favorite. I've put about 500 miles on him so far...

I do have one area that concerns me which has to do with the clamshell on convertible top. It's not closing properly, that is to say, the driver's side of the clamshell is about a half inch higher when fully closed.

Any insight into this would be appreciated, thanks.

Welcome to PedrosBoard!
Congrats on our 987.2.
It's a wonderful machine that should offer a great deal of enjoyment.
Regarding the clamshell not closing equally on both sides, my guess would be that the two transmissions are probably not correctly synchronized.
I see that quite a bit.
Happy Boxstering,

I wanted to tell everyone that I had the pleasure of meeting Pedro on Wednesday. He was able to adjust and lube the convertible top, it's running smother and looks great...problem solved.

Thanks Pedro.
