Beautiful, I have a 2000 S too. Looks like you are right down the road from Carolina Motorsports Park. If you ever wanted to check out driving on a track you can check out the PCA which runs driver education events there.

Congrats and welcome. And with picture! That color looks great! Looks like it changes color depending on the light? Can we see some more?

When I lived in Charlotte and my boys split their time between me and their mom in Moncks corner, sc I used to drive right by it all the time. Now that I am in FL it is kind of far... I never did make it before I moved, but I am going to try to go their with Carolinas Region PCA next year.

Welcome! Don't see too many around with that colour. It's actually quite nice.

Congrats!

A truly beautiful color. She'll look even better when you get those headlights de-ambered.

Yes the headlights, was wondering what would have caused that...there are 2 holes in each lens with a burnt amber color to them. How do you fix that shy of replacing the whole assembly?

That was recently discussed. It is a very common problem. There doesn't seem to be any cheap and easy way to deal with it. Here's the thread:

Headlight burning

I love the color as well! CMP is one of the safest, cheapest tracks to start out on, it's definitely worth a trip if that's something you're interested in doing.

Looks great! I've actually never seen that color before on any Porsche! And hello from South Carolina (Beaufort to be exact)!
