My First Porsche......2001 Boxster S

Hello Everyone,

Been lurking here for a while and am just dropping in to say hello. Picked up a 2001 Boxster S about a week and a half ago, and I have to say I love it!

My younger brother's a big Porsche guy and drives a Carrera 4S (had a 924 and 944 perviously) and has been pushing me to get a Porsche forever....so here I am.

The previous owner was a nice guy who kept it in really good shape, so I'm happy to have joined the club.

Welcome! Your car looks great. I feel like you don't see a well optioned black car often.

Thanks Jake! Yeah, this one's pretty well equipped as far as I can tell. Admittedly I don't know ALL of options back then, but I'm pretty much just missing the rear speakers, CD Changer (has the CD Deck and door speakers) and the fancy OBC. I'd like to have the rear speakers, but the changer doesn't bother me as I have the Becker bluetooth adapter on its way.

If you are curious what options you have there is a sticker under the hood with the codes.

And if that sticker is unreadable the same sticker is in the front of the maintenance manual.
