Another new member

I just bought my first Porsche. 2002 Boxster silver with boxster red leather. The car is awesome and makes for a great Christmas. Now if the sun will come out my dreams will be complete. Here are a couple of pictures, assuming I did this right. I have been reading the forum for a couple of weeks now. You all have been very helpful.

Welcome Slane6, I share your joy. I just bought an '02 Arctic Silver with Grey leather interior, 2.7 with Tip. Like you I am waiting here in the northeast for a nice day to put down the top again or even drive it without wet roads. I think the headlights you have are what Travis and I want for our cars. Now change the side markers to clear and your on your way..........to spending more money

Travis,

You are on your game. I enjoyed dealing with Expo Motorcars in Houston. They have excellent cars and represent them accurately on eBay.

I know, I know, I will get the side markers and the tail lights as soon as I recover from the purchase!!! Priorities Priorities. I'd like some of those painted bumperettes too one of these days.

So far I got my ipod cable in (from becker) and had to replace a city/parking light. I replaced them with led's from ultraleds.co.uk. Looks great, not scary aftermarket. Theres a post with pictures on here somewhere. I'm still learning.

Jeremy

Good choice of exterior and interior color. I wasn't quite sure at first, but now I can't even imagine my Boxster with a boring black interior. No offense Randall....

Sorry. Sorry. Sorry. Please don't hurt me. I think a boring black interior is great. I'm currently covering my beautiful terracotta interior with a black Sharpy. I was never here. (Please don't hurt me)
