Getting my BK and a huge thanks to steved0x!

Getting ready for the May event at Mont Tremblant (LCMT). Found a Brey Krause extension from a Rennlist member. Steve helped me ship this item for peanuts! Thanks Steve, you're a great guy!!!

Very cool of him. This is the way these forums should work. Members like Steve make this the place it is.

This seems like a good time to chime in and point out that he helped me with good advice and a set of rear control arms so I could stop the dreaded suspension "thunk". He deserves lots of good Karma.

You guys are making me blush. I have been on the receiving side of so many tips and help from this forum, and it felt so good, I like to forward it along as best I can.

Example in point: I did a DIY suspension overhaul and setup (thanks Woody for the eccentric bolts that came right on time!), and had a terrible track weekend due to my non-optimal setup and was almost ready to quit from the car. Now that I am back several members (insite, lap1doug, jakeru, smallblock454, jsceash, racer boy, topless, I am sure I am leaving some out, sorry about that) have reached out and sent me steps and measurements and tips to set it up properly for next time.

This forum and the good folks on here rock!

This forum really makes my Boxster ownership more enjoyable! Between the great help and great sellers my one year ownership has been awesome and I have spent more money on goodies than expensive maintenance. Isn't that what it's all about?

I bought this Recaro bucket seat from Steve and I swear the only thing he didn't do is fly over and install it himself! The amount of detailed information on installation was impressive and it made the whole thing as easy as it could have been. Great purchase and great guy!!

Steve I owed you some photos of how it looks in my car. It still doesn't bother me having the original grey leather one for the passenger, I just sit my girl on it as often as possible since she loves to ride in the car so I don't see it that much
I've let go of my OCD thankfully!





Along with the other interior mods I've done like the aluminum pedals, shifter and mat this seat has significantly improved my driving enjoyment for a very fair price!








Good old reliable Woody hooked me up with some seat belt receptacles for cheap so I was good to go in no time!


Keep it up guys! This place wouldn't be the same without all the great enthusiasts such as yourselves!!

A good seat does make a difference, and having a seat the right size. That Recaro seat was too tiny for me, the one time I sat in it while it was on my couch, I had to get the kids to pry it off my backside... Luckily for you it didn't leave an imprint on the seat I had it installed over on the passenger side for a while but my wife didn't like it the 1 time she road in it (at Road Atlanta but we only got 1 hot lap before somebody crashed and we all got black flagged) so I decided it had to go, and I replaced with the XL version. I hope I said it the right way, and also that she does not ever read this or else I will be in trouble.

The pedals and the whole car look great!

Just as you like seeing your girl in the passenger seat, so would we.

Who doesn't like to see pics of Girls in/on a Porsche

Hmmmm, that would make a good thread. "Porsche Pics with other things we love"

And by things I mean also stuff like Planes, Motor Cycles, Boats, Sunsets, Beaches, Mountains, other cars, etc and of course our favorite Girls.
