Just bought a 2005 Boxster, what should I expect?

Hello,

I just bought a 2005 Boxster base with 42,500 miles on it. It is a 6M and looks great. This is my first Porsche. Any tips or tricks I should be aware of? I am trading in a 2000 BMW Z3 to get it so I am interested in the comparison.

Thanks!
Ed

Drive it, I'm sure you will love it! A Boxster base isn't a hotrod but it's still a Porsche and it handles like one.

Change the oil every 5-8K mi or annually if driven < 5K mi. They're easy to work on if you're handy with spanners.

Pics?
