Well done! That tailpipe can be removed with one bolt and will clean up real nice with a little Simichrome polish and elbow grease if you're so inclined!

not sure if this is your first, but its nice to have the S. If you have ever owned a boat, you know what you are getting into.

Very nice! love the color! I'm also from Western Mass. Nothing nicer than a cruise in the Berkshires behind the wheel of a Boxster this time of year.

You know that "boat" is an acronym -- Break Out Another Thousand.

Kinda the same with Porsche's, but the acronym doesn't work very well.

Congrats on your purchase, and enjoy the smiles.

Congratulations! Don't feel bad about our deal, my car still isn't ready - hopefully the soft top comes in this week.

I'll be up at Kringle Candle's cars & coffee tomorrow morning. It's not too far from you.
