Smile Officially a Porsche Owner

After months of looking for the right Boxster I made a two and half hour journey to Porsche of The Main Line in Pennsylvania and picked up a 2003 Boxster that was formerly owned by a PCA member who kept it in fantastic condition and serviced regularly. The team at Porsche of The Main Line treated me great and made my first experience of purchasing of Porsche perfect. I can finally drive the car I have been dreaming about since I started driving. Definitely a good day.

Very cool, I hope to make my first purchase soon as well. I'm looking toward the 2003 Silver as well - you obviously have good taste sir!

Thanks all. It's been a blast to drive. I can't wait until it gets warm enough to drop the top.

Welcome and good luck
Maybe we will pass on the road sometime. Good to see some more Jersey representation.
Can't believe I'm hailing Jersey, o-well

I travel down south every once and awhile so maybe we will pass on the road. I am going to try and check out some of the C&C events here in Jersey.

It's always warm enough to drive top down, just crank up the heat! I know it generally isn't too cold here in Texas(I am originally from Wisconsin) but I have driven top down in the 30's, invigorating!

It's been tempting. It's suppose to be in the 60's today so today may be the day (if it doesn't rain).
