Great wheels. Do both rear fog lights work? Often they don't.

So can you give us any powerball numbers to play since you came back from the future (Sept 2015)
Porsche = precision
I am a 'D...'
I love Seal Grey - besides being a 'D...' i'm biased
Mine only had 52k, just broken in
Welcome

They're not supposed to. Per European regs, the rear fog is supposed to be illuminated only on the driver's side of the car (so Porsche wouldn't bother hooking up the other side for North America).

That's a beauty. Smart move finding and buying an 03. If it was an S, I'd be extra EXTRA jealous!

Looks exactly like mine did same year, color, rims. Now after 5 years of ownership mine looks a bit different. That is where the fun comes in only secondary to actually driving it! Enjoy it and make sure to stash some cash for repairs and those fun addons.

Welcome to the club!

Don't forget to leave a potato on your soft top overnight. It keeps the c@ts away.

Thanks for the welcome. Does the potato really work on cats?
