New '04 Boxster S 550 Spyder Owner

Hi all, I am a new Porsche owner and have just recently purchased an '04 Boxster S 550 Spyder. I purchased it in California and I live in Idaho. It is being delivered to me and I am so excited I am about ready to wet my pants! This is my first ever Porsche and first ever sports car so any information or recommendations would be appreciated. Thanks for letting me joing the club!!!

Here are the photos...I just wish I was the one who took them. The Carrera GT silver paint, cocoa brown leather interior and "batwing" ensure that it is a true anniversary model. Did I mention that I'm more than a little excited?

Nice. What makes it a spyder (besides being limited edition of course) Looks like my 03 s? Is it faster? More HP?

CV, it has a small HP bump if I'm not mistaken.

CS...slight increase in horsepower and speed. Adjustment to the gearbox, lowered body, sport suspension, different brakes, 18 in Carrera wheels, and several other minor changes. It was made to pay homage to the original 550 Spyder.

Heliguy...I did not get it from cars. I bought it from the dealer. Paid $21,250 shipped to me. 66,000 miles.
