Not a myth...

two boxster in my neighborhood and both are on the second engine. What bothers me is that I got the 2005 + replacement engine that was supposed to be the "fix".
Now that 2005s are failing...yikes.

Glad you mentioned bringing it up to snuff

The one I was thinking of looking at was pretty scuffed and scratched. And the wrong color..so it would take some work and $$ to make it look like fit. Any input on what I should budget...DIY or...
