Official Blue Boxster Thread

Ok, there is the official black and yellow threads, the unofficial white thread but nothing for Blue? So I am going to start the Official Blue Boxster thread. I figure all of the Blues (Lapis, Ocean and Zenith) can all get along on one thread. Actually, I love all three hues! I almost bought a Zenith but then ended up with Lapis! So post your best pics

The Superficial Midnight Blue Boxster thread

Doesn't midnight blue count?

Sorry, I forgot about Midnight of course it counts. When I did a search, I searched for "Blue", "official" and "unofficial" but for some reason I didn't see that thread? Oh well, now we have a "Blue" thread where all shades are welcome!

Geez, I see I even posted in there! Sucks getting old!

I have had my Lapis Blue for three weeks now, lots of fun!

Love Van914's wheels. Been looking for 18" wheels that I like without luck.

Here's my 2001. I personally love the color combination. No mods. Just crossed 60,000 miles. Haven't spent 3 seconds thinking about the IMS. Really fun to drive, as you already know.

Mike D - Your's is definitely beautiful. Wish I didn't worry about IMS, because I would like to drive my car to Chicago, but am afraid to until I have the IMS replacement completed. Mine is a '03, which seems to be more prone to the IMS problem than the earlier models.

2000 with 70,000 miles. Triple Blue. Ocean Blue ext. Metropol interior and Motropol Blue top.

When really shined up, Blue is the best! Lot's of comments. Owned for 3 years and have put 20,000 miles on her. I never hesitate to drive long trips. That is what it is for, to drive and enjoy.

I just picked up my Lapis Blue last week. I've only just started cleaning her up. I hope to have it looking flawless in the coming weeks.

I've started getting my new (to me) Lapis Blue to a point where I'm excited about it. Here I've polished part of it, and put the 18" Carreras on.





There's still more work to be done, but I'm pretty happy so far.
