Not to hijack this thread, but my wife had a 96 Subaru that was also a great car. I don't think Subaru is the car company it was 10 years ago--recommending stop leak for new engines???? I think some people buy a new car so they won't need stop leak.

I wish Lexus made a car like the Boxter. I don't consider the SC an alternative, though it's a nice car in its own right, and actually a much better value than a new Boxter. I'm sure that some that just want top down touring do consider it a direct competitor.

To S or not to S.

Does anyone know if the RMS issue is more prevalent on S or non S models?

I've also heard of RMS leaks on 996's. A friend of mine with a 996GT3 has had his RMS replaced twice, and it has less than 10K miles on it.

I simply don't understand why Porsche cannot make a car that doesn't leak oil. I understand that they're performance cars, and I *might* understand a little oil leak if the car was driven hard, but frankly most Porsches never see the track. This RMS issue is going to follow the Boxster forever, much like the engine issues on the early 964's.

Yes, the 996 is just as prone to RMS as the Box.
