Awesome shots! Nice car too!

But I have to ask, what kind of lights are you using? I only wish I had a studio that large.

Thanks to all for the replies The car is hard to fault!

The upgrade from the 3.2 to the 3.4 is slight but noticable!
I'm finding it hard to decide which to listen to most....the amazing BOSE stereo, or the incredible sound of the sports exhaust

LoveBunny
- Yes that IS my actual car!

bmwm750
- Yes, my photographer has a studio designed for car photography!

944boy
- Not sure what lights he uses....but yes they are big!

hqduong
- No wax....Brand new car. Took the shots the day after taking delivery.

super66
- Driving shots were taken at approx 20kph

Thanks for the reply! Very sweet car indeed! With cars like these, who needs a wife :-)

Have you considered a Clear Bra to protect her?

Gorgeous car, FIG.
I like the black grille idea, above.
I'm doing black Cayman grilles for mine.

FIG,

Beautiful car ! I've always wondered, when the steering wheel is on the right side of the car, is the shift pattern the same as cars with the steering wheel on the left ( for example, in a six speed, do the gears go 1, 3, 5 from left to right ) ?

Nick

That is truly an awesome vehicle! Enjoy it! Black was my definitely my next choice & will be a strong contender for the next Pcar I purchase.

NickCats - I have only seen the overhead of a 350Z in RHD but yes, it's the same layout (1,3,5), so they shift higher as they move the lever toward them, rather than away like we do. It looks absolutely freaky - so glad I don't have to drive an RHD vehicle!

I raced a right drive vehicle with a buddy a couple of times. I actually liked it, once I got used to it. I'm right handed so my "good" hand never left the steering wheel.

I will never understand how right handed people shift gears with their left hand.
I can barely open a can of Pepsi with my left hand!

If you switched to Coke, you'd do fine

FIG, you're driving my dream boxster... color combo and features list and everything. I'd just need that steering wheel on the other side.

Quick question: did you also get litronics (bi-xenon headlamps)?

by the way, what's it costing to fill up an Aussie tank in U.S. dollars these days?

You must have never been a musician! I played several woodwinds and then guitar, so using both hands is second nature. I actually do some manual dexterities, such a TIG welding better left handed. I believe I may concentrate more because its not the norm for me.
