Second Boxster

Hi all. Used to own a '01 Boxster, but sold it. Always wanted to get another one. Recently was on vacation in Portland, OR and came across a 2003 Boxster S, seal grey, grey leather, 47xxx miles, Tipronic. On a whim, went to look at it and it was such a great car, I bought it, cancelled my return flight, and drove it back to St. Louis.

Have already changed air and cabin filters, installed non-smokers' tray, swapped CD holder for upper storage shelf, and hardwired radar detector.

Have had several BMW 3-series over the years, but these are such great cars.

That looks like a sweet ride guy, I always liked those wheels. As someone who was also Boxster-less for a time it's like losing a pet, till you get another one, there seems to be a void. Porsche is the "crack rock" of driving machines, you can't do it long without wanting it daily.
