Cool Will hit the 100k mark today

I'm less than 12 miles from rolling over to 100k, my commute home is 12.6 miles - so it will be a less exciting event than i had planed . I was going to keep it in the garage till Saturday then take it out and "properly" break through the 100k mark, but with and with an autocross on Sunday I decided to take it into the shop and treat her to fresh oil

Impossible! Boxster engines can't last that long!

LOL! I know imagine that?! I though it would be good to post up something positive about our engines. Touch wood, since purchasing car at 78k, I have had the water pump and a fan ballast replaced, plus the usual oil changes.
