    hi there!

    well,
    at first i like to say "hi" to everybody here.
    Looks like a nice forum. I followed the invation of Achim aka Porschejeck because i am still looking for information about boxster.
    short introduction:
    i have a 996C2 still in germany.i moved to stuning california 6 months ago. I got my Porsche since almost 2 years now. For Cali i am already looking for a 993 Cab/black/tan.
    But i need a future replacement in Germany for my 996C2. She is still in great condition, new engine (same probs like everybody. . .) but Tiptronic which was really a mistake of myself.
    Anyway,
    i started testdriving boxster a while ago.
    It doesn't make me really happy, i still miss that 911-rear-wheel-feeling. Also so the power was IMHO not Porsche like.
    But now they come out with a 3,4l.
    Achim invited me to a testdrive in his 987s. So i am looking forward. . . Maybe this will change my mind. . .
    Question one:
    Does anybody installed the just the rear diffusor on his car?
    I prefer white or grey with painted rear seats. Does anybody has pictures of that? Black inside?

    So,
    thanks guys.
    Don't knock me down to hard. I am a Newbie in Boxster stuff

    best regards,
    christoph

    It definitely will change your mind, especially with me behind the steering-wheel, hehe The S (even the 3.2) offers you more punch compared to the base Boxster you drove, hence this should be a better buy for a guy used to the 996-punch. As for the carrera drive feel the 993 cab should satisfy your needs, so you end up with the best of both worlds (993 cab + 987 S)

    As for the "rear diffusor": I'm not sure on this one, but I guess it's only for visual drama (not really improving aerodynamics or handling of the car). Also I think it only comes with the complete aerodynamic package

    If you want to see some stunning pics of a seal-grey Boxster, search for Steve R's user photo gallery (awesome pics ). IMO if you get a grey body paint (either seal or the new meteor MY 07) you don't need the painted seatback - if you get the sportseats the seatback comes in Titanium grey, which is a nice match for the exterior grey color already (see attached link).

    I think there are quite some Rennteamers owning a Carrera (various models from 964 to 997) plus a Boxster at the same time. It might be helpful to start a more specific thread (maybe on the 997 board or general Porsche-board) to get some impressions from guys having extensive experience with both platforms (comparos / pros & cons of both platforms).

    OT: I hope you had a nice 4th of July at the sunny beaches of La Jolla (and some American friends plus German beer to console you after the worldcup's 1/2 final )

    Before I forget: here's another nice seal grey 987 S
