When buying a used Boxster or indeed when buying parts for you Boxster it is sometimes useful to know what option codes the Boxster left the factory with.

This page will help you decode these option codes into plain english.

To the right you can see an example Boxster option sticker. This one has been altered so the chassis number is not genuine (to stop fraud).

This sticker is located under the front luggage cover (or hood or bonnet in most languages and normal car talk)

At the bottom you will notice M-AUSST/OPTIONS, to the right of this is normally a list of numbers. If you look at the numbers on the list and compare them with the option codes bellow you will see that you can decode the options of the car that has the sticker attatched.

If the sticker is missing, it could be a sign that the panel its stuck to is not original and the car may have had body damage, worth further investigation!
