Hi everyone !

Hi everyone !

So, let me present myself. My name is Matthieu GARCIA and i'm french (uuuhhh!!! lol). I'm Porschist from 6 month and completely passionate, days after days, with my daily car : a pretty 986 S from germany.

I'm also registrated on the french popular forum named "boxster-cayman.com" with the same ID. I decided to join you here because i'm looking for more informations about my car and... speaking English, of course!



Have a nice day

Wilkommen. Oops, that's German. Bienvenue. (thank you, Google.)

Hope you enjoy this forum, increase your Boxster knowledge and get more better English than us-ums havens.

Welcome from Salt Lake City!

Be sure to ask about engine oil, tire sizes, and IMS bearing replacement. Those things rarely get discussed in depth anymore.

I do speak some French. Eiffel Tower, ricochet, refuse, toilet. (Does that make sense?)

All that comes to mind at the moment.

Welcome our newest French Boxster driver. Avignon is a fine spot to own a fine sports car with many excellent Porsche quality roads. My daughter played water polo with the French National Team and we made a few trips your way.

Have a good look around and don't mind the wise guys.

Welcome to the forum!

Hope you're enjoying your new toy, and that you'll manage to avoid the speed traps that litter our highways (en passant, je suis aussi Francais, d'Orange! Mais je vis au Canada maintenant).

If after doing a search you can't find any answer to whatever question you have, don't hesitate to ask. There's a lot of knowledge shared here.
