picked up an 01 986 S

So after a bunch of research here and other places, I picked up a Merdian Silver 01 S with 105k. From everything I read, this was a safer bet than a low mileage non s, not to mention a bit more fun. A PPI done by Scott at German Motorwerks in Ashville, NC revealed that while the car was due for service, it was mechanically sound. Scott has been working on P-cars since he was 14 and really knows his stuff. His report was very detailed and included pictures.

I have yet to drive it as I wanted it fully serviced before doing so. Here is what it's getting:
- New Bilstein's all around, which of course means an alignment.
- pads and rotors on all 4 corners.
- New belts - wow on having to take out the front seats to change them!
- New plugs/wires
- All new fluids (everything!), all new filters
- removal of front bumper to clean out radiators
- full detail and cleaning out the drain plugs under the top, which are a little blocked.

Around 2003 I used to sell for a multiline dealer and was a Porsche salesman that was also certified on BMW's. I had access to everything and when I needed to go for a fun drive to clear my head or take a break, I always grabbed a Boxster. So really looking forward to owning one and driving the snot out of it as much as possible!
