New Ozzy Owner 02 Boxster S

So first I would like to thank all of the people that create, maintain and contribute to this site. A hell of a lot of information especially when you are putting your foot into the water of Porsche.

I'm an Australian living in the South and I would have it no other way! This Silver 2002 S was a bit of diamond in rough. It has taken a few weeks to get her back to her former glory but it has been well worth it. 3 stage cut and polish, interior pull and clean, seats reconditioned and still more TLC to go. I have been trying to go back to stock but couldn't resist the wheels which I just finished rehab on.

If anyone on here knows of any good mechanics that don't charge a kidney near or around Wilmington NC let me know. Will drive 100 or so miles for a good one that is quality but not a dealer.

Welcome and nice Boxster! There are plenty of forum members in your neck of the woods so I'm sure someone can recommend a good mechanic. BTW - a lot of the service items are pretty easy. Just need a few tools, the willingness to get in there and do it and you always have us to help you.

I'm wrong (post #6). My wheels are Sport Classics; these are Sport Classic II's:



Anyway, welcome to the Forum. You should join the Hurricane region of the PCA.
