Scott,This is not a question rather a comment regarding an answer you gave today about an oil leak you diagnosed as a possible RMS failure. I too have a 1999 Boxster with around 30k miles. I noticed a very minor oil leak on the garage floor and when my dealer performed the 30k major service in 12/2005 he reported that there was a crack in the oil fill tube which goes into the engine. He replaced same and I have not noticed any leaks since that time. You are the expert here, but I thought I should mention this in the event that the same type of leak could appear to be an RMS issue such as the one the the other member asked you about. However, you saw the photo and I did not. For what its worth... -Rob Fitzgerald
