In 2005 it was an option, as of 2007, it was federally mandated.

thanks jeff, i was just out playing with my new"er" boxster, and found nothing scrolling through the obc indicating a tpms is installed or operational.... yay. now changing from the 19's to 18's will be alot easier and cheaper. also if anyone knows if the 17" wheels fit without interference on the 05 s models, please chime in. with the road conditions here in new orleans, a taller tire is better to absorb the shock of encountering road surface imperfections.
