My first post, my first Porsche

I just purchased a 03' Boxster in Seal Grey this past Thursday. I had never planned to ever get a Boxster, but I was just browsing thru a local Auto Boutique website and saw the Boxster and that sparked my interest. I fired an email asking how much I can get for my 05 BMW 325ci as a trade in for the Boxster; four days later I bought it

Thank you for the warm welcomes

I've been reading the forum for the last week trying to learn as much about the Boxster as possible.

Welcome kdub! If you really want to enjoy your car check out your local PCA or the NW PCA. Lots of driving/racing opportunities.

Not a photographer (the bg is too busy), but a photoshopper...

Leaving the crest gold... nice touch.

Thank you for all the warm welcomes. I didn't realized all the replies to my thread until now.

Actually my friend took that pic of my car while I went inside the sales office for the apartment building (the background building under construction- I'll be moving there next Spring). However I am an amateur photographer; and yes that background would be way too busy and would not be a backdrop of choice if it was a real photoshoot. I have a photo website you guys can check out: http://www.kdubphotography.com
