Thumbs up Option questions

I am researching Bill's 03 Boxster.
On the option sheet Bill got with the car.
(He did not get the original window sticker
Would love to have it)
On the list and on sticker on the front
Hood panel. There are the following codes
I confused on some of these for example.

490 Hi-Fi sound. Is this the stock sound system?
198 starter 1.7 kW
432 4 spoke steering wheel
454 cruise control
M6A black floor mats red Porsche logo

Please reference the pictures.
What goes in the compartment below
The cd holder?

Steering wheel is three spoke not four
I have never see a 4 spoke wheel except
On a 928.

Our floor mats are all black no red at all.
The mats are in excellent shape and I
See no red a all.

Never heard of a 1.7 kW starter on a Porsche
Is this starter a heavier duty one than stock?

Also code AA interior standard leather interior.
Was this a option in 03? Cannot find any other
Interior offered other than leather.

Going back to the window sticker any way to
Get a copy of the original?

Thanks to all,
Jinx

Nothing goes under the CD holder, that's just a storage shelf.
Three spoke steering wheels became standard before 2003 (can't remember the exact year). My 2000S is a three spoke. I don't recall 4 spoke steering wheels as standard or an option for 2003.

Leather: There was an extended leather option available but I don't know the option code.

Starter: no optional starter available but the 1.7kw may be the starter for tiptronic cars.

Mats: Most folks have replaced their mats after 10 years due to wear.
Hope this helps...

Option 432 is for "Steering Wheel with Tiptronic Controls". The highly desired three spoke wheel was standard equipment in 2003.

I don't know about getting a copy of the original window sticker, but a genuine Porsche Certificate of Authenticity will provide you with a complete option list and description of your Porsche as it was originally released from the factory. Suitable for framing and makes a great resell item. Cost is about $100.00 though, and is available here:

Certificate of Authenticity - Owner Services - Porsche Service - Dr. Ing. h.c. F. Porsche AG

Here is what my super option list says;

490 = Harmann analogue sound system
198 = Stronger starter for Canada (1.7kw)
432 = Steering wheel with Tiptronic S paddles
454 = Cruise control

I have no idea about the M6A black floor mats.

Makes a great Christmas present, if you ask me. Honey, are you reading this?
