Anyone received a Emission Recall Notice from Porsche AG?

I received a Emission Recall Notice from Porsche AG today. It says that Porsche has determined that a defect relates to motor vehicle emissions exists in certain model year 1998 to 2002 Boxster vehicles...If you do not have this recall performed, your Boxster may not pass emissions or DMV smog tests.

Did anyone have problem passing smog test and had not received this recall notice?

All it is is a gas cap replacement.

Apparently quite a few dealers don't have the replacement caps in stock yet so when you make an appointment be sure to ask if they have them.

According to Porsche it's a "15 minute installation"

probably a lot longer for the paperwork and most dealers will probably want an appointment too.

Wondering what's the difference on the '97?

and what else is new with the Babblers?

I think because the emission system changed in '98

Which is why we do not get a check engine light with the cap off I guess.
