Two months after

I finally came back from my "vacations" !

After two months of driving a 90hp diesel Renault Captur and a 90hp Renault Zo (EV), I wanted to share with you how good it feels to get back to my Boxster!
The seating position, the steering, the gearbox, the power... and the noise! It's so good!

The car didn't like being washed only twice in two months so I have a bit of cleaning and polishing to do...

Of course, aside of the cars, the rest was beautiful:






I never go too far from a Porsche anyway:




Now it's time to get back on the shifters and plenums

See you guys on the forum!

Ben.

Thanks

I'm not a big fan of Paris, too packed, I only like the Eiffel tower! I stayed only one afternoon.
And nothing beats the backroads on the Riviera, even with a Captur or a Zo (or the 928!).


I just spent two hours washing and polishing the car! I did only one side, the sun, birds and water combined damaged the paint...
