great tips!

I knew that turning the key in the door to the lock position and holding it would raise the windows but I never tried it with the fob buttons!

Good stuff Neil.

About tip #1 window action with key fob. This is the second reference I have seen for this both from UK owners, Gerainthomas being the other. It doesn't seem to work for me or other non UK Boxster owners from what others have pointed out. Is it possible this was a feature only on UK or European Boxsters. Seems odd.
