Any CEL's

Is the Check Engine Light (CEL) on / throwing codes? Would you be willing to take it to a local garage for a PPI? How do you propose to handle the transaction since you have a payoff on the car? Pay the financial institution directly? Then the cut you a check for the balance? Also can you take a photo of the option sticker under the Frunk?

No CEL's. I had a 429(?) months ago but reset using Durametric and it never returned. Maybe because of the aftermarket Bulaga Racing Exhaust I had installed.

Sorry do not check this site a lot anymore. I know it is a vast knowledge base for Porsche's but sometimes the posters can just be A-holes (Me included)

Have a local indy (German Imports, Parker CO) I took it to for some work and would gladly take it to them for a PPI. Will post the frunk sticker tomorrow.

Since I still owe a balance, would just send to Wells Fargo for payoff and then sign over the title once they send it to me. I know it's a trust issue, but my GF works directly for the County Sheriff if that helps.

I just feel stupid for not researching Porsche's before I bought this one (I have all the repair receipts to prove it). Based on my experience, I will stick to American muscle cars from now on.

There are currently no 2003 Boxster S for sale in the PCA Panorama Magazine and haven't been for a few months so maybe list it there. There were only about 8500 of these built and even fewer of the identical 2004's so there should be some demand out there.

I looked for a year for mine in 2014 and happily found the one I wanted.

Good luck.
