My new Boxster S is finally home.......

Hello all,

After months of looking and searching, I finally decided to pull the trigger on this 03 Boxster S. Triple black, 6 spd, Litronics, Bose. Check out the pictures. My father restores 356's so I am happy to finally be in the family!

It does have some rock chips, but the photo's hide it well. It has 65k miles.

Very nice and thanks for all the pictures! Black is my favorite on the car, even though it is a pain to keep the dust off and looking clean. Nice wheels, too (though I'm partial). My friend and I both have black Boxsters.

I own the same color combination and rims in a 1997 with upgraded tail lamps and litronics as well. Your pictures have inspired me to save up and get a glass rear window and get the car resprayed (lots of stone chips, scratches, and reverse dings in the hoods from PO's)

Very nice. You've done well.

Now drive it like you stole it if you've not absolutely thrashed the thing and you'll see what this car is all about. Amazing performance and very forgiving!

What a car. Has it been driven at all? The condition of that car is just amazing.

We're in the same area where was the picture taken?

Thanks for the kind words. The black definitely does show lots of swirl marks which I need to work on getting out.


The location is at Santana Row in San Jose, CA.

Ultra Luster does a fantastic job on my black. It takes several apps, but it is a micro-polish and polymer glaze. Use the application cloth without turning to build up the micro polish and get rid of swirls. Turn the app cloth often to just apply the glaze. It's hard work, but well worth every drop of sweat!
The show car guys use it in my area to get that shine that you can't figure out why it's not dripping off the car..........it has to be wet to be that glossy!

That's a great looking car and some great pictures. Makes me wish I had some good pictures of my car.......maybe in the spring.
