  13. Hi to all Spoke to Cath today in Wigan, North West Porsche ... discussing my 987 2005 Boxster. My concern is the IMS I am hoping that mine will not need to be repaired and that it is the model that is safe and will not fail. there is no noise as some people say there is, apparently the IMS just fails. Is there a way of checking for instance the VIN number, or is it in the shop to be checked over. Hope someone can give some direction. Mike ...
  14. Hi to all ... Just bought this code reader ... Anyone out there using one ... Or any advice on using one manual a bit vague ... Thanks in advance ... Mike ...
