Admitted "noob" seeks advice...

Recommended Posts

Hi Folks!

I've had my Poor-sha for a couple of weeks now, and it already feels like an extension of my body... here's a description of my new ghetto-cruiser:

2001 Boxster S

Arctic Silver Metallic/black cloth top

Black leather interior

6 speed manual transmission

57,500 miles

Very clean and gorgeous beyond description

Smoooooth... and fast!

My dilemma is this- I want to get a quality (outdoor) cover ASAP, and saw one that looks suitable, but first I need to figure out if my Boxster is fitted with an "Aero Kit" or not. I looked around on the Web, but all of the photos I saw kind of looked the same.

Can any of you fellow Porsche-ophiles enlighten this humble beginner?

Thanks everybody! Keep the shiny side up.

Ted

Aero kit usually intails side skirts (rocker panels), front bumper (or chin spoiler) and rear wing. If you can post a picture it would make it much easier. :D

Why do you feel so bad about having a Boxster? I would be stoked to have one. Anyway, you will probably get more answers in the Boxster-specific forum. Good luck and enjoy the car!

I have ahad both a Boxster S and a Carrera S. And I think between the two, the Boxster was just a good. It was really fun to drive around town, fast, and nimble. The Carrera S is a whole different experience. The car is heavier and drives a little better at fast freeway speeds. I do have to admit that I, too, felt a little humble in the Boxster when around the Carreras, but now, that I have a Carrera, I think the boxster is great car and would love to own another one, when and if I divorce myself from my Carrera. The two cars are just different cars and drive differently as well. Boxsters are fine cars and anyone should be proud to drive one. Have fun in your new Boxster!!! :clapping:

Ah, yes, I see. I cleverly asked a Boxster question in a Carrera forum. Total rookie move! Anyway, thanks for your reply, Perucho. I really feel great about my Porsche- I've wanted one for years. Happy driving!

I'll take your advice, Phillipj, and thank you kindly. I believe I'll post the pic over in a Boxster forum, though, where maybe they don't know yet that I'm a total moron. It won't take them long to catch on...

Cheers!

:)
