A little video of my car...

My little brother put this together but unfortunately there was too much traffic to get out of 3rd gear or to really punch it. I was only able to hit 90+mph on the first run with decent acceleration as the road was too crowded. I'll try some better ones in the future.

It is 19MB and close to 2 minutes so don't bother if you're on dial up. Broadband should take about 30 seconds to start.

Stryke, I checked out your vid, it looks good. Unfornately I didn't have sound though. I especially liked it when your buddy panned over to look at the blinged out benz. That was funny. Those windows were dark as hell. Couldn't have been legal. You were right about the traffic though, it's to bad you couldn't have really opened it up. Maybe next time?

Thanks Adam! The sound is actually the best part of this video. The exhaust note is so sweet! Try to see it with speakers and if you have a subwoofer it is even better!

Today I was tempted to take out the summer tires out. Carrera 18" alloys. The car is such a blast to drive most of the time I don't use the radio to hear the sweet engine purr. Boy all of us here are we a lucky group or what!!!!!!!!!!!
I wonder how the Carrera alloys feel in comparison with the winter tires?

^ probabbly a whole lot lighter. Those wheels are light as hell. I don't know if you know this, but they are 24lbs lighter than the stock 17's. Bigger wheel, lighter weight, can't beat that! Plus great looks. It's definately one of the best options on the newer boxsters. That and xenons.

Thanks for the information. At the end of the month I am putting the summer set on. By the end of March the possibility of snow in Long Island is nill to zero. Can't wait. I also have the xenons.
All of that and I use the Cross Bronx Distressway everyday to work. What was I thinking! But I love it.

Wow, you use the 03 "S" as a daily driver. How many miles do you have racked up on her so far?
