Forgot to mention that the Boxster sailed through her MoT yesterday afternoon so that's four MoT's in as many months! Think the 944 Cab may need a bit more effort before she gets her wings again :lol:

Changed all 6 coil packs. Quite a satisfying job. The hardest part is working out which extension(s) to use. Note that you don't have to remove any of the pipes that are in the way, which makes life a lot easier. Just the rear wheel, a few covers, the cable into the top of the coil pack itself, a single bolt (each), pull the old one out. Simple.

Less than £250 from OPC with the TIPEC discount, so original parts too. Actually cheaper than Design911.

Happy to give more details if anyone's about to do theirs.

Yes, OPC can amaze you with what they can do!

Mine was a did affair tonight as my dilemma with power to the dvr is all sorted with a direct plug into the fuse board. Bottom row is switched live and rows 2, 3 and 4 are permanent live. There are live feeds in a number of slots ready for additional accessories such as dvr's. Job done :D

I've also debadged the rear... Much better and far easier to clean :D
