I'm back...

After a 6 year hiatus and two previous Boxsters I'm back. Owned a 1994 Porsche 968 and a 2004 BMW M3 over the last 6 years. The 968 was unique but old cars suck to drive. The M3 was fast but just didn't do it for me. I've come to an agreement on a 2004 Boxster S. Hopefully will be in my garage by next week. I am excited about getting back into one of these cars. TON of car for the money. Cheers.

Very cool. Welcome back! Once you have it in hand, post some photos and tell us about the car.

Car is paid for. Now just waiting for the shippers to pick it up and deliver it to Portland, Maine. 04' Boxster S. 41,xxx miles. IMS bearing already updated. Real clean. Close to flawless. Has some nice equipment. Sport seats and xenons were a must for me. Will be looking to swap out the aluminum insert steering wheel with plain leather.

Nice. Best year, color, and wheels IMO. Throw a PSE on it and it's my favorite combo outside the 04 550 SE.

Good luck with it.

Thinking a Fister exhaust is the first mod.

Very nice. It appears that is one highly optioned Boxster.

She's a beauty, for sure! Did you consider a fly down, drive back?

Nice Boxster.

That aluminum on the steering wheel would be a no go here in Phoenix. I have it on the hand brake and have burned myself a couple of times.
