It is both standard and an option - let me explain.

All Boxster's have the capability once it is "turned on" in the instrument cluster.

To change the display you need to either add the OBC stalk (it goes beneath the turn signal stalk) or add a dash switch.

Do a search here for OBC hack -- there is lots of info.

I just took delivery of a 2001 boxster. I keep pulling the turn signal in the way it shows in the manual, But nothing happens! Are the OBC's an option or does every boxster have one. Thanks for your help

Pretty sure its a hack. Google it. I know I saw it on a DYI page somwhere.

Regard, PK

Got 4 stalks off the steering column?

The one on the bottom left controls the OBC.

Got only one on the left, then the option was not ordered when the car was built.

Can the OBC be retrofitted? Yes. With either a 4 stalk unit or a switch wired in plus the option of the OBC turned on by someone who has a special diagnostic computer (usually dealers but some independents have em)
