New Boxster S Owner in Northern Illinois

Just wanted to introduce myself.

Long time Porsche owner ('79 930), first time Boxster owner in Northern Illinois.

Just got home from our 2000 mile trip from South Florida to Northern IL after picking up my '02 Boxster S.

Car had extremely low miles (16,900) and obviously was rarely driven. I know that can be a "red flag", however, after purchasing the car I immediately had it transported to Pedro Bonilla (who also did a first class PPI) at TechnoLab to have some much need maintenance done. IMS, RMS, DOF, Oil Change, Water Pump, B & M Short Throw Shifter along with lots of other small things that needed to be addressed.

What a great experience. Pedro is such a nice guy and incredibly knowledgeable about the Boxster platform.

Car performed flawlessly over the 2K mile trip. Weather was perfect and can't wait for spring.

'79 930, Oak Green, Cork Leather Interior
'02 Boxster S, Seal Gray, Boxster Red Leather Interior, IMS/RMS, DOF
