HELP Please, 2001 Boxster S Factory Options

First time Post.........
I am looking to purchase a 2001 Boxster S.
The current owner has no idea about what the installed options are on the car.
How do I find this information?
He says "It's Loaded".
I test drove it today.
There were three "dead" switches on the left side of the upper console and two "dead" switches on the rear of the center console.
Near as I can figure, the only option was a 6 CD player because it has the trip computer.
I would appreciate help, as I'm trying to determine an offer price.
I've never owner a Porsche before, so I'm learning the hard way at this point.

Switches on center console are for the heated seats. One of the three to the left of the radio is for PSM (traction/stability control). Not sure about the other two.

Best way to determine options is to look for the white sticker under the front trunk lid. Copy down the codes listed on that sticker and then search via google (or here) for "boxster option codes". Then you can decode them yourself.

That car isn't "loaded" if it doesn't have heated seats or PSM. My '00 S is very lightly optioned as well with just the Hi-Fi (aka DSP) Stereo, the windblockers, and a few small items. Mine is pretty close to being a "stipper".

There are 17 three digit numbers,
Where do I look on this web site for the info?
I have searched google, but can't find any info.

The lower two buttons on the left side of the AC console are dead regardless, there was nothing for them for the Boxster.
