Cool Good Christmas week with the boxster

It has been a great week, got my restricted Monday, and it's a good thing to have a Porsche at the age where you still get gifts, what did you get for your boxster? I got a spoiler sticker (painted the metal plate flat black) got the windstop decal, seatbelt covers, key fob, porsche Motorsport hat, driving gloves, aviators, and good clear roads to take my baby to red line.

This was very much a Porsche themed Christmas:

- The Boxster Story by Paul Frere
- 101 Projects for Your Boxster - My brother said to my wife when I opened it "Look, more ways for him to spend money on his Porsche". She blames him for encouraging me to buy.
- A book of backroad tours for Ontario
- Hat for spring/fall driving. I still need a summer one, and don't want baseball caps
- Safety kit for the car, with jumper cables to come. If I have them, I won't need them for me.

No mods (at least yet), I want to get to know the car first. For now it is bonding with it every time I open the garage door, waiting for less white and more warmth.
