Found way to get Great MPG with the Box....

...got my ass kicked at the auto X though




Actually, I had posted a question a month or two ago about concerns about moving the Box cross country. I'm happy to report, all went well.

Thanks.

I was half expecting a picture of a bicycle...

Great looking Boxster! I love the 18" turbo wheels!

Hi,

Yea, I like the 18" Turbos too. Got em on my Guards Red '99. Glad you made the trip OK, sounds as if you don't have any horror stories to tell, which is good. Good Luck in your new location...

Happy Motoring!... Jim'99

And you're going to get rid of that? That is a great looking car (I'm a big fan of the guards red)! When I first started looking for a Boxster I wanted the exact car in the picture (red with tan interior). Then they let me test drive a "S" and that's all she wrote...

My Boxster gets great gas mileage when I'm towing it to the autocross events.



Too bad my tow vehicle gets less than 10MPG
