Smile Buying Boxster S

Well I got a PPI done and it came back with no surprises so I have agreed to purchase a '03 S. This is going to be my 1st Boxster but not my 1st Porsche, 2 944s and 4 914s. Might just have to ask the wife for a PCA membership for Christmas. I am going to get the car Thursday, I am so dog gone excited I can't stand it.. Now I got to order some stuff he he he....

Welcome To The Club

I have had several sports cars over the years, but nothing compares to the Boxster. It is absolutely a fun car to drive and experience. Wait until your wife takes it for a spin. Mine thought I was crazy, but after driving it so loves it.

Thanks everyone! I know I will have a lot of questions, I really enjoy working on my cars, so a Bentley manual will be in my future.

Excellent choice in color combo and wheels, but I'm biased. Enjoy; I don't know how you couldn't!

Well she is safe in the garage, I think I drove over half the state of MS with the biggest grin on my face. Ended up meeting the previous owner in Jackson and the chased my father in in 996 back up the Natchez Parkway and then home. Sucha sweet car and a awesome drive home.

Great looking ride, glad to hear that you are enjoying the Boxster, and that it's safely in the garage. Snowing and sleeting here in Texas, and I think this nasty weather is on the way to MS !

Just took the front license plate holder off the car, think it makes it soooooo much "smoother". I am thinking my bumper plugs and clear side markers should be here today so that is the next step...
