Aos successfully replaced. Sense of accomplishment? Maybe.
Sense of "I'm never working on this car again"? Very strong.
From now on, it'll be dropped off at the dealership.

Aos installation

After much cursing and pouting, I finally removed the AOS. The problem is, I didn't pay enough attention before I yanked it out. The bottom section that slips into the engine and has the rings that...

For me, it's mostly the ponies. If it doesn't handle quite as well as my 986S, it really doesn't matter much. I'm not driving the Boxster to its maximum capabilities anyhow.

I'll get one for the same reason I got my 986.
Because!
The 996 makes just as much sense as my Boxster. But I'm not getting rid of my Boxster.

996 forum

I know some of you have multiple Porsches. What is the best/most informative 996 forum? Is there one like this?
Thanks.

Wells Fargo dealer services is really quick and easy but you can pay up to 9 percent. My credit union didn't bat an eye at my 02 Box.

Strange, my cap looks like that but no numbers at all. Just a tiny "Germany".
Perhaps not a Porsche cap?

I've had my car for nearly two years and I've never seen the engine. I had no idea it was that easy. Maybe this winter I'll try it.

One of my first posts was a very similar problem. I could nearly change lanes with throttle change. Stand on it and it would change direction, chop the throttle and back it came.

Also, even though it was given to you, be aware that one of these cars, abandoned to the weather can cost a bunch of money to bring back. No such thing as a cheap Porsche, even when it was free.

When you turn on the ignition and set the parking brake, does the brake light come on in the dash? If not, it's probably the switch under the console. Very cheap, fairly easy to fix.
