Are you coping me ;) just kidding I had an artic silver with red leather 986 as well. Bought a new speed yellow 987. Have hardwired my solo S2 to keep from going through batteries all the time. Easy to take with me when I get a rental.
Get the windstop and xenon headlamps. Upgrade the wheels if you can afford them. I have a stock radio with the PCM 2.1 and its a little weak. Might as well splurge for mats, you will pay about the same on ebay. I love the steering wheel controls and havent bought a car without them for about 15 years. I am happy with the 5 speed but havent driven a 6 speed. Just curious what color your going with, some colors have some nice to have exclusive options you may want to consider. I have the matching seatbelts, dash, airvents and boxster emblems. Seen a few cars close to optioned like mine but have never seen one exactly like it though sure there is one out there somewhere. Good luck!
Here is a pic of my boxster with 19in wheels from the factory. They are the turbo wheels and no lowering or other mods are needed. I have read some posts that say that the 19in wheels doesnt handle as well and hurts the performance due to unsprung weight. Havent researched the difference but my car is just a sunday pleasure car and I like the look of the 19 in wheel much better that the 18.
Just bought a new Porsche and found out I am going to Iraq again. This will be my 4th time (reason I can afford a Porsche). How do I store the car. When I went over in the early 90s I filled my cyclinders with oil and disconnected the battery. The last 2 deployments I just sold my car before I left. I just bought this car so selling it is not really an option even though I got a great deal on it.
Who do you use for service on the PCM 2.1. My cingular chip doesnt work and I went to the ATT store and they said the phone was the wrong frequency for their network. What other carriers use a compatible chip? Curious as to who has the best network. I have heard bad things about T mobile and have only used ATT.
I could imagine racing stripes somewhat like the f430 scuderia that progressively get larger as the go up the hood would look nice. thanks! Thats what I was thinking, and with a decal it will come off easily. I just wanted to make sure I wasnt in left field.
Check out the turbo 19 in wheel
Does anyone have any pics of boxsters with racing stripes? I was considering putting a racing stripe down my speed yellow boxster. I have seen a few corvettes with the black stripe and wanted an idea of how it would look. Going to use film so I can take it off if I hate it. Any thoughts?
I recently saw something interesting with regard to that. Send me an e-mail and I will put you in touch with the guy who made a bladder for just that Daniel How tall are you? I am 6'5" and any driving over 5 hours is a bit uncomfortable for me as well.....I try to stop and stretch after every couple of hours if I am on a road trip.
