I have almost bought the boxster on several occasions and have read extensively on the IMS issues.... from what I understand the majority of the IMS issues are on the pre- 2003 cars....

Even back in 2003 Porsche refused to admit there were problems and customers replaced their engines and encountered the same issues with rear main seals..... engine after engine after engine. I believe each one is approx $6K with zero help from Porsche. This is one of the reasons you see Boxsters with LS1 swaps....

Another thing to think about is that as the car is mid-engined its a bitch to service so you'll be paying bigtime for the novelty. If you do pull the trigger I reccomend HUNTER MOTORSPORTS (near sherway) as a possible indy shop of choice...
