New to the Porsche world!!

Hi all,

I picked up this beauty at the end of september for absolute peanuts...2000 2.7..






It had a Faulty alarm control unit (since been replaced at the dealer) and a serious RMS leak which took an afternoon to swap in a fresh seal. Now she's as good as new.

Coming from a supercharged mx5/miata I wasn't expecting much from the Porsche, power wise, the overall driving experience however is amazing, it easily keeps me smiling as much as the mazda did.

Here's a pic of the mazda at the ring last summer..



And a more up to date pic of the boxster after cleaning up the wheels and giving them some paint..



Since then i've cracked the rear window in the cold so now need to replace the hood.

Currently I am sprucing up the interior with some paint, will post up some pics once done!

Cheers

Imho

I think there's a kit you can get to move the steering wheel to the correct side.
