    I am unsure whether the dates refer to month or quarter but I suspect the latter.

    Re: Boxster Delayed Option Availability

    Whoaaaaa???

    Lots of options coming in January..

    I wonder if you can have some this options before January??Hum...maybe some extra buck and an agreement to get the mouth shut until January?

    Woshhhhhhhhhhhhh...Thanks for posting the options

    Re: Boxster Delayed Option Availability

    Thanks for the list. Do you know exactly what the date means, build time or spec time or delivery time?

    Mine is feb build

    Re: Boxster Delayed Option Availability

    That all looks a bit concerning. My brother's car is December build for January delivery. According to that list, he can't have embossed headrests, stainless/chrome exhaust tips.

    Also, when is the sports exhaust coming out? And will it be switchable like on a 996?

    Re: Boxster Delayed Option Availability

    johnny, i assume it will be switchable, and 100% functionally retrofittable, just like the 9x6 series.

    that said, most of the fun 'details' options are on that list (thanks dreamcar for typing it up)

    some very 'fun' options like
    crest in headrest,
    painted rollbars
    coloured seatbelts
    chrone tailpipe

    crest and rollbars are prohibitively costly to retrofit, and are great details,

    the others can be retrofitted, but its better to have them feom the factory.

    that said, a few less options certainly won't take away from the car, but they do make the car a whoel lot more unique, fun, and detailed.

    Re: Boxster Delayed Option Availability

    Moogle,
    I think my brother could live without the crests in the headrests. He doesn't really want painted hoops (it's seal grey and I think this colour car can live without coloured hoops). If he turned down this car, he might have to wait til August to get another one (said the dealer).

    Mine is also February build and I've been told I can't currently have the rear section of the centre console painted (arctic silver) or have it in aluminium finish.So I guess all 01/05 options will be the same. But, it is unclear whether 01/05 and 02/05 refers to months (Jan / Feb)or 1st and 2nd quarters of the year. Being a pessimist I suspect the latter. I am at my dealer's on Saturday and I will ask. But I have been told that my spec will have to be firmed up in November so I am not optimistic. And Johnny, sports exhaust is not mentioned in the brochure at all. All you guys thinking of cobalt blue and other special colours they are 01/05 as well. Even more arctic silver ones, then

    Bugger

    And there I was - finally convinced myself last night that the extra 1K for Cobalt was OK. I'm down there on Fri so will find out for sure but if they won't let you do your centre console I suspect it's quarters and not months too.

    Re: Boxster Delayed Option Availability

    My dealer said Dec/early Jan for final spec for my Feb build. Doesnt make too much difference if those options arent available though!

    Painted console and roll bars are fairly important to me. What is the standard finish on the rear console section? What parts are different between standard interior and full leather?

    Re: Boxster Delayed Option Availability

    After reading the brochure, it would appear that the Boxster 2.7 comes with alcantara seats. It doesn't say that the Boxster S comes with leather seats as standard as my 2001 Boxster S did.
    Instead there are several options for leather.
    1) "Partial leather seats" (I guess this means just the seats are leather like a 986S came as standard).
    2) "Soft ruffled leather seats".
    3) "Leather interior package" includes seats, upper/lower dash, door panels (my brother has specced this).
    4) "Extended leather package - dashboard" (no idea what this means).
    5) "Instrument surround in leather".

    So I guess you need to know how much extra leather the "extended leather package" gives you. I'm not sure I'd bother myself. Leather on the dash/doors/seats is enough for me.

    Centre console comes as standard in soft feel paint in interior colour, I think. Like the 986. Which I don't particularly like. Cheapens the ambience. But, no choice I am afraid, but my dealer has told me that they can paint it for about the same money as the option price. Thinking about that.

    Re: Boxster Delayed Option Availability

    martin , in your situation, you might be able to get the said options. since your car is goin to be built AFTER the 1/05 threshhold.

    good luck.

    Re: Boxster Delayed Option Availability

    I hope so, will be talking to my dealer at the weekend.
