Talking New Boxster owner-giving out 1 free item!

Hi everyone,
I'm a new owner of an '02 boxster base; fulfilling a life-long dream of porsche ownership. It has a tick under 90K. I bought it knowing that is needed some work, mostly just maintenance. I bought it about a month ago and since then have done the following:

1) changes plugs/plug tubes/o-rings (the latter due to leaks)
2) cleaned throttle body (which remedied the bad idle surging)
3) new air filter
4) cleaned MAF (actually wasn't really dirty like I've seen on other cars)
5) changed front rotors/pads
6) replaced rear tires
7) thoroughly cleaned interior

It still has some sorting out to go, but it's a 3rd car for me (fortunately)

To celebrate my new membership , I've decided to give out a free item to one local atlanta member (or anyone willing to come to atlanta to pick up this $12 part ) Basically, I had to replace the ignition switch. Once I got under the dash, I discovered that the PO already upgraded to the new style lock mechanism/switch (the '05+, i think?). the switch is different, so I have an unused switch from the old style lock mechanism that's free to any local atlanta folks (just come pick it up).
btw, this is a great board with a lot of good info.
-Jimmy
