Guess what came in the mail!?

Checked the mail today and a boxster related item had finally came. Take your guesses on what it is!

It's fairly obscure.

It is specifically and entirely boxster related and not an appeal. Something old from back when the car was new.

It is a very late 90s style item.

The umbrella would be nice. Any last guesses before I reveal?

Depot led tail lights?? There's no way you'd make that miscue...

A promotional game for the boxster. Features specs for the car and some nice boxster porn in the book. The game is likely terrible due to its age, but it is a cool bit of memorabilia for sure!

Way too cool!
That's definitely a piece of memerobilia I bet most enthusiasts don't have.

On Gran Turismo 4 I always take the Boxster (RUF 3400S) to the Nürburgring. Been playing it so long I have over 1 billion in credits lol.

I have this game.
In Stage one, you need to replace the AOS in under 2 hours.
If you do the oil filler tube while you in there, you get 10 points bonus.
In the second stage, you need to figure out, how the hell you measure the oil level in the car. Third stage, you need to replace the RMS, and install the new one to the correct depth. This stage is tricky, as the depth changes all the time
Then there are other stages when you need to detect if your coolest tank is leaking, try to figure out codes P0430 and P0420, and clean all the foam flakes coming out of the AC vent.
The highlight of the game is the last stage, when you need to replace the IMSB.

What a fun game.
