You can run a one-timer yourself from cars.com. I think the cost is about $20.

Must be the wrong # - this one's reported as sent to the crusher and is probably already sitting at Walmart made into some garden tools or something.

sorry i must have copyed it wrong, anyone mind trying again

Heres vin# again: WP0CA2985XU622546 i believe i posted a letter O as the third digit the first time, but after inspecting the vin plate i believe it to be a 0. I guess if i need to i can renew my carfax subscription. I sorta like looking them up. Any way i really do appreciate the help that was offered the first time and hope you guys can oblige again. If at all possible maybe u could send copy to email, but if not maybe a list of alerts posted here, if something is fishy or out of ordinary i will need to get a copy for myself. My email is Nautiquelfe@yahoo.com im im looking for a particular color combo boxster and this one is it so i have to be extra cautious.

Talking

Car is reported as a Miami car with 2 or 3 owners. Hard to tell as it did get a corrected title in 1999. Last odometer reading in Oct 2001 was 40,058 miles.

Nothing else remarkable to report.

Can't send you a copy as this will violate my dealer's agreement with Car Fax.

If it were me AND I had the money, I would try to buy a 2000 Boxster S. With the tip, the car will simply be much more fun to drive and retain resale value much better than the std box.

Good luck!
