2000 Boxster S, Ocean Blue

This is probably the cleanest it has ever been - there were some folks selling some car cleaning stuff and they were cleaning cars for $20 or $30 (except for wheels, since this was at the track they said they didn't want to mess with any hot wheels)

I just purchased it a couple of days ago and sadly it has sat in the garage since. I plan to get it out for a drive tomorrow and then I hope to hit some sporty roads next week. To tell the truth Iím a little nervous about the purchase, Iíve never thought about owning a Porsche, it was sort of like it found me instead of me finding it.

It was destiny, then! Enjoy your first drive. If you haven't done so already, take it to a well-reviewed independent Porsche mechanic. They can go over the car with an unbiased eye and tell you of anything that should be addressed - now or in the near future. If you treat it well, it will do so back at you. Good luck and post frequently - there are many great people here to help.

It's been awhile since I've posted a picture of my Lapis Blue. I spent the weekend polishing and waxing. It looks really nice right now; almost no swirl marks. It looks wet. If only I could get it to stay this way.

Looks fantastic! The Lapis Blue is such a deep color especially with a fresh polish and wax

I was recently asked how I got my car so clean.



That kind of cleaning only happens once a year, if that. It involves:
1. washing the car
2. clay bar the car to remove surface contaminants. The car should feel smooth as glass at this point
3. 2 rounds of polish
4. wax

You need to get a good polisher (not the ones from Sears). Here is a link to a good one (no affiliation with this site):
Porter Cable Polisher

This is probably the best value out there. Make sure you get a variety of good polishing pads, and a good polish. There are some kits on the Autogeek site that package the Porter Cable with some pads. I like the $229 kit. I use a lot of Meguiars stuff. I start with the Meguiars 105 polish then move to either the Meguiars 205 polish or Meguiars Ultimate polish. Then apply your favorite wax.

Here is a good video on how to polish your car:
Polshing tips

Good luck

Tony

Yet another 2000 Ocean Blue S

Did not realize how common this combination was.

Bought about a month ago, still getting to know it.

Got some sport design wheels and promptly bolted on with fresh rubber. Love the look. Old and new pics.
