Hello fellow Boxtaranians! Just an update...

So I traded my beloved '04 S for a '13 Audi A4.

I totally miss my Box but I have to say it was the reasonable decision because I have to travel a lot between Salt Lake and Vegas. Audi gets 30.8 mpg at an average of 78 mph.
Thanks Utah to raise the speed limit to 80!

So, what's going on here? I hope all of you enjoy your rides and one day I hope I'll be back to be a legit member again.

Still a great forum, best on the net for our cars, no doubt!

Later,
Andy

You're still legit! You're just "in-between" Boxster's!

We prefer to think of your hiatus as a sabbatical...enjoy the time off to refresh your batteries so to speak.

My Box S gets 27mpg at that speed so I'm not following you, I'm guessing you have lost thousands already trading your car for a new one.

C&C is right off 106th South just West of I-15 every Saturday at approx 10 am

Main reason for the trade was almost 6 hours each way, the A4 is a really nice travel buddy, very comfy and quiet. Satellite radio, Bluetooth and other options make the trip so much easier!

As to the trade, I got 18 for the Boxster and the A4 for like 32, not too bad considering....

And like Arnie said "I'll be baack!"
