Well, to be fair, it wasn't half the value of the car when the work was done over 7.5 years ago.

I'm not positive on the 2003, but I do think that means you don't have traction control.

There is a switch by the drivers left leg that raises and lowers the spoiler on the Boxster.

Traction Control goes up top.
I've seen the raise/lower spoiler in the ones below.
I've never seen all three of the switches on the left occupied.

Yes, sadly, he did... 325 days ago to the day -not that I'm keeping track. This post makes me miss "Foxy."

My (interim) 330i is ok, but I still want a Porsche 911 so bad.

Dang Mladen, S500? What, do you have a family now or something?!?

Great pix. You're right, those wheels really don't fit the car. And personally, I'm not a fan of chrome.

If I were to wager a guess, I'd say the cord plugs into the left side of the detector because in MOST (not all, including Vipers & Hummers) cars, the lighter/socket is closer to the driver than the...

Here's what I would do if it were my car.

1) Replace the O2 sensor throwing the code. I think that would be easier than putting the old exhaust on.

Ah! I recognized that from the video. That's right by the golf course there -I drive down 114 everyday. I have seen plenty of accidents right there on the access road.

It should also be noted that the Passport doesn't just know about red light cameras, but speed cameras as well. Does the V1 point to that?

In that price range, why a 328 over a 330? And it's probably over the top, but she could even get an M3 in that price range.

I'll add that it's worth it when you get your insurance company to chip in for most of it. My out of pocket expense was $2000.

I sold my DD Acura TL to get a 330i. It's loads more exciting than a TL, but to me, nowhere close to a Boxster. Definitely a good in-between.

Today is the youngest & lowest mileage it will ever be.

Why? Why do people say this? Do they presume the value to go up at some point? Cars aren't the stock market. They seem to either depreciate, or depreciate quickly.
