New 01 Boxster S owner

Hello guys,

I sold my BMW Z3 and purchased a 01 Boxster S w/ 44k miles last week.




I love this car very much. I got a new headunit for it so I can hook it up to my IPOD on the weekend. I will post pics tonight.

I keep being told about the rear main seal issue. I've inspected the bottom of the car and didn't find any leak. Should I change it @ 50,000miles just to be safe? What esle should I change at the same time?

This place seems very nice. I am glad I found it.

Welcome! It looks like a nice ride...
I had 2 prior M roadsters before the Porsche.
Nice cars...
You can hook an ipod directly to the radio in your car by the way for about
30 bucks..
There is a thread on here somewhere. I have mine done and did my buddys this weekend on his 911.

Works like a charm.

Check it out.

Thanks
The MINI is a part time track car. Going straight it is as fast as the 986S but it is still just a MINI... it can never complete with the 986S

Thank you guys for the kind words!
I am looking forward to learn alot here
