Hi From England..My 2001 Boxster S

Had the car couple of months now, and thought its about time i registered. What a lucky find, local as well.. Only 39k miles on the clock... Bodywork is original and mint as is the interior.

Cant wait for the weather to improve here in good old blighty...snow is thawing now.. Done around 1k miles so far...and flies !!

Car is completely standard, although i found a set of clear lights on Ebay before Xmas at a bargain price..so couldn't resist..

Want to change the wheels this year, but not sure what i like yet..17s on at present and would like to fit some 18s or bigger?

Future plans for the car.....
Poss a complete respray to Ice White and some satin black multi spoke wheels.. Seems such a shame as the bodywork is flawless apart from a handful of chips on the front bumper..

Have spent a few hours detailing and polishing to a high gloss finish..Would recommend a Meguiars electric polisher...hand mine for a few years now.

Was also the first time i have ever used `clay bar` Bought the Meguiars kit..was very apprehensive i must say, as some of these products are just a waste of money
But hey ho...amazing...get yourself some if you haven't tried it..

Been offered a set of these wheels..They are only 17s and not expensive..also my tyres which are as new will also fit..... Does anyone know if they will fit my car?

Chat soon...Hi to Everyone..

Nice car! Congratulations and welcome!

You might want to start a thread on the tires in the General Discussion section, everybody seems to hang out there. They'll be able to tell you.
