I don't think I'd mix antifreezes. On my 01, I just flushed it with O2 over a couple of weeks. First with tap water, and then with 2 rounds of distilled water. Drove it with water for a while. ...

No, and if you're worried about corrosion under the battery, go to a marine supply and get a pint of zinc chromate and coat the battery tray. Back in the day, I had a Fiero with a swiss cheeze...

Yup on the VW battery falling thru the floor. In Michigan, when I was a kid, all my cars seemed to have rusted out floor pans.:barf:

Good for the cop. In that traffic, he or the woman in the Boxster could have cause a horrible accident. He has her tag number, you can't outrun the radio. And instead of a ticket, she'll end up in...

It isn't even close to impossible, no special tools are needed. Like lots of things on the Boxster engine it's a little tight and you need to access from under neath and through the panel behind the...

I guess I'd go to a Volkswagen dealer and ask the service writer where to get it serviced. Your alternative is to take a road trip to Germany and find a dealer there.
