Dropped some $$$ this month!

In the past 3 weeks, I have spend quite a few bucks on the Boxster!

3 weeks ago, I had the old clear bra removed, the car completely detailed with paint correction and scratch removal and then a new clear bra installed.

1 week later I had the 60k mile service done including oil change, all filters, plugs, tubes done. I had the AOS done and the water pump replaced which included new coolant.

Today I got new rubber all around.

Car looks and runs fantastic, but I am a little nervous about the credit card bill!

My wife said "Its your baby, you have to keep it perfect!" I love her! (my wife that is)!

Nice! I bet it's a great feeling to have all of that work done, and a better feeling to be married to your wife!

Growing up in Ft Collins/Loveland, I can imagine cruising College Ave in a nicely detailed Boxster and then maybe taking a sprint over around Horsetooth Reservoir or up to Estes Park - What a fun afternoon that would make!
And do something nice for your wife too!
I think I have a Porsche problem...

Good maintenance and timely repairs are an older car's best friends!

As for great wife's, when you find one, keep her!

Many of you will recognize that I list my wife as my primary sponsor in my racing videos - any woman who can stomach 10 sets of new tires per year and a spare engine sitting in the workshop (just in case) is pretty incredible.
