Paraplegic Boxster owner. OEM Cruise Control kit for 2007 Boxster S! Where to buy it?

Hello boyz and girlz!

I recently bought my 2007 Boxster S and as I am a Paraplegic I seriously need to buy a Cruise Control kit for my car.
Does anybody know where I can order it online? The Porsche dealer here in Iceland is ridiculously expensive.
I'm going to Boston in June so I could also buy it there and escape customs here in Iceland.

All help greatly appreciated!

Best regards,

Iceland Boxster (Jón Gunnar)

I order parts from these guys all the time and they are on the east coast.

Have it delivered to the address you plan on staying in Boston.

This is for the 987 which you have. You could always call them direct and discuss. Very helpful staff.

How many days per year can you actually drive your boxster in Iceland? More than 60?

Just wondering how many days a year there is snow on the ground where you live.

Why should snow matter? The Boxster is a great all weather car, I've driven through a few blizzards in mine.

Very nice Boxster! You might give Sunset Imports a call, I am sure they could get you the parts for a good price, but I am not sure if they would ship to Iceland.

Define blizzard, where I live an average snow event would prevent the Boxster from even touching the ground.

As history will tell you, when both land masses were discovered by the Vikings (Iceland and Greenland) to protect the one that was beautiful from being overrun and taken they called it Iceland and the other, Greenland.

The names mean the complete opposite of the way they look.

From the questions being asked, the hoax is still working.

P.S. Beauty isn't limited to just the land, their women are gorgeous.

I have my Boxster insured from May 1.st until the 1.st of October.
My plan is to put my car on a cargo vessel and tour Scandinavia and Europe, starting in Norway.

As you can see, the nature there is spectacular:


Regarding the Icelandic ladies then yes, they are gorgeous:
