It was nice to meet you two. Glad they worked out. Have you posted a picture of your car yet? I could only find the 19" wheel ad.

Had a great time meeting two Boxster owners tonight.

Got to drive a Panamera GTS spiritedly.

Fun time.

The wheels are sold.

Have you guys sprayed the engine bay at the car wash? I have a 60,000 mile car with a dusty engine. I've been afraid to damage something with soapy spray.

Thanks! Hmm. I felt like it was finished. That's usually never the case I guess. I'm still in the first month of ownership. Will have to research.

Used a clay bar, scratch remover and waxed it. It doesn't look new. Not bad for a 20 year old car.

Can you please tell me what this button does?

I've tried downloading manuals. I've googled a few times. I can't figure out what the globe button does on my AC control panel.

Thanks.

Not to hijack this thread, I hit redline once in mine and it felt like I hit an ignition rev limiter. Is that what happened or were my valves floating (I hope not)?

That's insulting to SUVs :)

I love getting the Escalade above 5000.

Agree completely on cutting loose. I'm still new to Porsches but I know it has to hold 9 quarts of oil for a reason.

So you think these are actually 17" rims? This is honestly a little important to me as I almost ordered the tires. (if they are 18" ... or maybe 19" I might use them. They look awesome on your car)

Just sold a customized jeep hours ago. I understand the pain of making authentic ads where feedback is allowed.

I second everyone suggesting the OEM bumper.
