Option code question

I just purchased a 1998 Boxster and was looking at the option codes under to hood and need some clarification. There is a code 030. Is this the same as M030? The option code list states the 030 is a sport type running gear but the top of the list states M030 is the sport chassis.

Which package do I have? Do I have the M030? If so what exactly does the car have?

Thanks.

Yes, you have the M030 sports suspension or "Sports Suspension Group". It is very highly rated for better handling without being harsh.

If you knew this when you bought the car, great choice. If you didn't know this, buy a lottery ticket today because you are on a run of good luck.

This is a handy label decoder;

What are codes 232, 502 and 584? I have them too but can't decipher them anywhere. Thanks.
