Does it matter whether you fill your tires with nitrogen or air?
Also, I don't understand #9.

Also, a little known fact is that all Boxster have a galvanized body and 10 year rust-free guarantee from Porsche.

Rick, the whole air vs nitrogen is hotly debated. I am tired of the debates. I love it and it works for me. Nitrogen is dryer, and this is also a plus for long term storage.

Desiccators absorb moisture from the air. This protects my leather and wood trim. I have about 10 (ten) 1-pound bags. I put 8 in the car and one each in the trunks.

I agree, lets avoid a debate. I never new that about nitrogen vs. oxygen.
The dessicators, are a good idea.
