He is in the UK. They have a registration system that has been explained to me several times on the UK boards, and it still does not makes sense.

There is a guy on boxa.net who has a 2004 987, but the 987 was released as a model year 2005. Go figure.

The first MODEL year for e-gas was 2000 when the 2.7 and 3.2 came out. Some of those cars were made and sold in the second half of 1999, but in the US when they were registered they were registered as 2000 models, not 1999.

Model years 1997-1999 were all 2.5 and they all had cable operated throttles.

Hey All,

Seem strange, does this mean that UK get releases before the US?

The Car I have is a Porsche Boxster S, 3.2 litres, black, and was first registard on 23/09/1999 so the 2nd half of the year. I have done a number of HPI checks and this is all legit.

Therefore, do I class this, in US terms, as a MY00, or is it a MY99.

If no one is able to say yes or no to if it has EGas cause of the MY confussion, is there any easy way of checking physically?

Many thanks for your help guys

You have a model year 2000.

If your car was built as a model year 2000 but registered in the US on September 23, 1999, then it would be registered as a 2000 model.

Different rules in the UK.

I think there are two registration dates/months per year in the UK. So if you want a newly purchased car to be registered as a "newer" car then you don't drive the car until the next registration period starts. Or something like that. The UK stuff is confusing. That is how a 987 owner on boxa.net ends up with a 2004 - he could not wait unit the next registration period.

For the 4 stalker try the UK boards, but you are not going to find a cheap one unless it is used. Parts are much more expensive in the UK than the US. Sometimes when UK people visit the US on holiday they buy it here in the US.





You may have to register to see these boards. There are people on these UK boards who have done the OBC and/or cruise control retrofits.

Cheryl on boxa.net might be your contact. http://www.boxa.net/forum/index.php?showto...55entry218455
