Agreed. $65k sticker, I paid $25k, 22k miles, CPO. Like-new Porsche for Toyota money? No brainier. Looking forward to finding a nice low mileage Cayman S someday.

When you panic stop, you may initially hear a single chirp. Since the Boxster is so nicely balanced, the front wheel(s) momentarily break free in a panic stop. All that load you're piling onto the...

I'm not sure why you see this as a problem. If you COULDN'T brake hard enough to make the ABS fire, you'd have a problem.

Well put, Topless. However, OP stated "I want my car to be legal." Even if he/she passes the emissions test, the car won't be legal if non-CARB-approved equipment is installed.
