Please help – need to finalize order (550 vs S)

Recommended Posts

Hey guys,

I need to make to final decisions about my boxster:

The options are:

1. 550 special edition – dark gray leather interior (or brown???)

2. boxster S – savanna beige interior

The stuff I’m banging my head on, is:

1. 550 comes with lowered & stiffen suspension (-10mm). I’m going to get 18” carreras anyway – so I don’t know how much harsher would the ride be with this option. It might be that most of the “stiffness” would be as a result of the 18”, and the suspension is not that big a deal. But – I’m in the dark here……it might just be the other way around.

2. Savanna beige interior – how much punishment will it suffer? Bottom line is that it is bright color leather. I wouldn’t want to find myself a few years from now with stains or discoloration of all sorts. Any one of you has Savanna beige interior for several years – and can tell me how it holds ?

3. does anyone knows if the "modified gear lever and quiccker shift -15% less travel" in the 550 edition is the same as the one you talked about afew days ago ? is it the same as B&M quick shift ?

The 550 edition is about 6.5% cheaper than the other boxster S option – but when it comes to it, if the savanna beige is a tough cookie, and the lowered suspension would make the ride too harsh – I still might go for the pricier ‘regular’ S.


I need to finalize my order – as the 550 option will not wait for me “forever”
