Welcome to the forum. Good start. And it's not another oil thread! If in doubt hit "search" first before asking questions. Enjoy the ride.

And we don't penalise you for gross spelling errors either - unless you spell IMS incorrectly.....

What's an MIS and what type of oil should I use? Will 24" rims fit on my car with a 10" spacer?

Well this forum is living proof that you don't have to spell to drive a Boxster. Psquared what are your intentions? Do you own a Boxster or intend to own a Boxster. If you own one it is customary to put pics on line.....

Yes, figure I owe you all some pics.. owned this 2002 base tip for 4yrs 4months. I cant get enough, its a DD, and as expected at the 80k mark this year I dumped a good 5k into it. All done myself other than the alignment.

Wheel bearings are next, just got a SIR B90 from Jaxonalde selling out. I searched/waited for 6 months and finally got this kit. Knowing the indys and stealerships charge ridiculous prices for bearing changes I am definitely willing to pass this tool around to forum members. Obviously shipping will be at your expense, but let me know, i'll be done with it around years end...
