    Cobalty, the first 987 S 3.4 in France

    Hi there,

    I've finally taken some pictures of my new '07 Boxster S

    The break-in is going well, about 2800 / 3000 km.

    It's an unbelievable thing. Compared to my previous 2000 Boxster S, it's a whole new car !










    Re: Cobalty, the first 987 S 3.4 in France

    Congratulations, that is very, very nice.
    We need a review of the 3.4L. You have some great roads in France for 'testing' your cars

    Re: Cobalty, the first 987 S 3.4 in France

    Is there any way to tell a 3.4L 987 from a 3.2L version from the outside?

    Re: Cobalty, the first 987 S 3.4 in France

    Beautiful car.

    What is that decal on the spoiler?

    Re: Cobalty, the first 987 S 3.4 in France

    Thanks !

    The review is coming soon, I promise.

    The decal is the logo of the independant porsche shop which sold me the car. Its owner is a good friend, he got me a 3.4 before the official release as a favor. I cannot thank him enough for that.

    I don't think there's anything different between the 2006 and 2007 Boxster exterior-wise.

    Re: Cobalty, the first 987 S 3.4 in France

    Very Nice Looks great with the grey top.

    Re: Cobalty, the first 987 S 3.4 in France

    Very nice car

    It must one of the few, if not the only one in the "Loiret" region ?

    Re: Cobalty, the first 987 S 3.4 in France

    Hi Bruno,

    Nice pictures, especially the 4th one.
    BUT, there is something lying on your driver seat attention "aux épines de pins"

    Re: Cobalty, the first 987 S 3.4 in France

    Ziggy, the car does come from Orléans but I actually live in Paris

    Canari, I saw this needle lying there afterward, I was too lazy to photoshop that out before posting

    Re: Cobalty, the first 987 S 3.4 in France

    Beautiful car - I wish you many many happy km
    I hope the summer returns soon for some cab fun

    Re: Cobalty, the first 987 S 3.4 in France

    Ooooh I like

    Time to get Porsche chrome exhaust tips!

    Re: Cobalty, the first 987 S 3.4 in France

    I considered getting that option while ordering but I'm getting the PSE as soon as it's available and I don't know if it will come with new exhaust tips or not.

    Yep I thought the same thing... I don't understand how Porsche can sell them like that...
    But except from that, your car looks really good WaT

    Re: Cobalty, the first 987 S 3.4 in France

    Thanks

    Yup, the exhaust tips took only three days to turn into that filthy black.

    Re: Cobalty, the first 987 S 3.4 in France

    Thanks for the pictures, great looking car. I pick mine up (hopefully) from Stuttgart on 29th September. Also cobalt blue with Carrera Classic wheels.

    Brasso (thanks RichC) brings them back like new with a little polishing.

    Re: Cobalty, the first 987 S 3.4 in France

    Rejex coating - then Meguiar's NXT chrome polish from that point on!

    Re: Cobalty, the first 987 S 3.4 in France

    Fine wire wool and Rejex gets them better than new

    Re: Cobalty, the first 987 S 3.4 in France

    Very nice!!! Drive well and enjoy it!!!!

    Re: Cobalty, the first 987 S 3.4 in France

    any photos of the different layout in the rear boot??

    Re: Cobalty, the first 987 S 3.4 in France

    Not yet but I'll take some tomorrow.

    Re: Cobalty, the first 987 S 3.4 in France

    congratulations, great car!
    is this grey leather? or natural grey?

    So simply use REJEX first then Meguair's NXT? My pipe is getting very yellowish too from oxiation.

    Re: Cobalty, the first 987 S 3.4 in France

    Thanks for the tip. I don't know if I'll be brave enough to do that every three days 'though.

    zzboa, thank you sir, that's "stone grey". The natural grey was both too dark and too expensive

    Re: Cobalty, the first 987 S 3.4 in France

    Looks like its created alittle more space in that corner of the luggage area - enough for an extra can of cola !

    Looks a little more awkward to add oil too ?

    Re: Cobalty, the first 987 S 3.4 in France

    Cobalt is a great colour! Lovely pics!
