I live in NE, but never have experienced such a sound, even in the dead middle of the winter like now. Maybe something happened during the ocean voyage?

It all boils down to a poor design problem. Why use plastic in the first place on a $45,000+ car? Folks in Detroit always used glass on their Mustangs and Chryslers.

Check Wal Mart. They always carry Mobil 1 in all 3 grades: 0W-30, 5W30.... I just replaced mine with the 5W30. Mine took in about shy of 9 qt. You can always add more.

Did you check the door sill on the driver's side? There would be a pair of switches with graphics on each of the button. Or, check your manual.

I'd go for the certified for a peace of mind, otherwise, look for cars from your nearest Boxster club or PCA. Most of these owners are likely to have well taken care of their cars.

Did you also know that those tailgating you are actually trying to find out what kind of car it is, since the "Boxster" logo on the rear trunk lid is very subtle especially in the darker color cars?

From my experience, I think I know what that "smell" means. If it smells like a hot iron, it may mean that the hot engine and exhaust pipes, etc. are cooling off after driving. Do you also hear that...
