Hi,

I just wanted to say hi and introduce my car. I've had it for almost four weeks, and it's a joy to drive.

It's a pastel yellow -99 2.5 with less than 40k miles (62000 km). It's equipped with useless navigation (PCM 1), phone, CD changer, sport seats and probably more that I haven't discovered yet.

I'm not entirely new to Porsche. I once had the questionable pleasure of owning a very crappy -78 924. My parents also used to have a -03 Boxster S, that they swapped for a -06 997 C4.

Well, on to some pictures...





If there's anything on my wish list, it's a couple of smoke/red LED tail lights and a sport exhaust. I've also ordered a pair of Porsche side decals, like the ones on the 987 Spyder.

No bikini team members? I am underwhelmed.

I'm so sorry. They were all just outside of the picture. I didn't want them to steal focus, since it was the car I intended to present. I'll make sure to include them next time.

Also, I've managed to take a look at the options codes. Here they are:
C00 - Built in Germany
030 - Sports Chassis -10mm
012 - Sports Design Package
139 - Seat Heating System, Left Seat
197 - Stronger Battery
222 - Traction Control System
224 - Automatic Limited Slip Differential
236 - 18" Tires (but there's actually 17" wheels on the car...)
274 - Make-Up Mirror Illuminated
288 - Headlamp Washer
340 - Seat Heating System,Right Seat
375 - Sportseat,Backrest Shell,Left
376 - Sportseat,Backrest Shell,Right
413 - 18" Turbo-Look-Wheel
436 - 3-Spoke Airbag Steering Wheel
441 - Prepared For Radio
490 - Mj 01 Sound System
534 - Theft Security System
551 - Wind Deflector
573 - Air Conditioner
584 - Hard Storage Box
601 - Headlamp Litronic
635 - Parking Assistant
662 - Info/Navigation System
663 - Hands-Free Reciever
692 - Cd-Changer "Porsche"
983 - Seat Covers Front,Leather

Some of them are obviously more interesting than others.

This weekend I managed to wash and visually update my car with side decals.





The decals were completely straight, but looks a bit bent due to the the curved side of the car. I don't mind. I think they look great anyway.
