James Dean Edition Suspension

Does anyone here know if the James Dean Edition came with M030 suspension? Also, part numbers would be helpful if you know them. I came across a local shop selling a set of Struts from an 04 that they claim are James Dean Edition with less than 20k miles. It's a good deal for a relatively new set of Ft and RR Struts anyway, but I'd rather get the M030 if I'm buying anything. Thanks

I thought the James Dean edition was some of the early 2.5 cars that were silver with red interior and hard top. Is there a chance they are talking about the 2004 Spyder special edition? If so that is M030.

I own one....

....and the official name is “50 Years of 550 Spyder Edition” Boxster S.

It is an M030 suspension.

You can buy a new M030 from Suncoast Porsche.

Thanks for the feedback. I knew it was available from Suncoast, but these struts are cheap enough that it is worth considering.

Never heard of that but if you want a lifetime warranty on your struts buy Bilstein or Koni
