post-it note yellow w/ a fake burlwood dash, good combo.

Also, that's the first Boxster I've seen with a power sunroof.

makes me think of that show on the Bravo channel I was watching last night about the neurotic guy who flips houses. Somebody should buy this foreclosed Boxster, spruce the interior, put on some replica carrera wheels and sell it for $5K more.

I've seen many on the local Craigslist.. '97-99, high miles.. $12-14K. Nice low entry for a Bboxster Spec car isn't it!

A CHEAP price for this in Denmark would be 65.000 US Dollars excl. warranty and insurance.

Yea just like Kimi Raikkonnen is not driving a REAL Formula 1 car because it has Traction Control but no slicks or v12 engine... really its a matter of old vs new, habits and preference!

I hate sitting in city traffic with my foot on the clutch... I think downshifting with a manual in very quick turns is a pain and with tip I can be much more aggressive and precise!

Most people here would have a hard time if they did their very best manual shifting, beating a automatic on a longer track course - but it's this myth that automatic is not a real driving experience. I think it is and seeing how many fake porsches leave the factory with tiptronic it makes me wonder how long this myth will go on, perhaps just one more generation

Touche! I'd like to see the REAL porsche drivers drive around here in Los Angeles during rush-freaking hour traffic! Let's see if you still wanna keep your manual or trade it in for a Tip faster than you can say Porsche!
