    Sports exhaust and Bose? Personally, having had Bose on my first 987 I wouldn't (and haven't) specced it again. It only sounds good with the car stopped and the engine off. It never sounds as good as the engine and it certainly won't with the sports exhaust

    Re: 987S ordered like this:

    I would recomend the sports steering wheel much much nicer than the standard one and also the heated seats! Could not live without mine! After a long journey if my back starts to ache I just turn on the heat and it sorts me out! Great for when you have the top down at night or when its not so warm as well!!!!

    Otherwise, nice spec! Enjoy

    Re: 987S ordered like this:

    Ahhhh just noticed you already have seat heating onthere... good man!!!

    Re: 987S ordered like this:

    Bose for sure. I love sound, turns me on. Wether the car or the music, I want both.
    I know that the sound system does not stand up to its name, but it is actually quite fine I test drove it and could still listen to music driving 230 km/h and that is more than I expected.
    It is not the B&O system available in the A8, but the space is simply to small for a nice speaker system to develop a roomy sound.
    I can turn it on and off, like the PSE, depending on my mood! Just dying in aticipation

    Re: 987S ordered like this:

    The Bose sucks though, man--really! Trust us! The standard unit should be plenty fine for your needs.

    Re: 987S ordered like this:

    I trust you guys. I tested it myself, it is what I really want.
    I have a late fitted Blaupunkt amp and stereo in my Alfa Spider, and believe me: THAT sucks!
    I hear some whirling from the motor while reving, it turns itself off, the sound is POOR and I cannot listen to music without killing it over 180 km/h with the roof down.
    The BOSE will be pure delight for me, trust me.

    Re: 987S ordered like this:

    Haha okay. If I order another one, I'm leaving Bose out, but only because of www.reusaudio.com

    Re: 987S ordered like this:

    Hi from a newbie (although been reading the site for awhile )
    I am also in Germany and still deciding on my options list, but I see yours is due for delivery in January.
    Did you manage to order before the deadline for the 3% increase in German VAT, or get a discount from Porsche?
    Although I was under the impression you have to pay on the day of delivery/collection.
    I decided not to go for Bose, and am thinking about the SportDesign package just so that it looks different from all the other Boxsters in Frankfurt.

    Re: 987S ordered like this:

    No, the VAT increase will hit me, but as the car will be licensed to my firm, I will not have to pay it (so I do not care). Else, I would never have risked that. You are absolutely right: You pay the tax on the day the car is delivered!
    To be honest, I do not like the look of the Sportdesign package, to conspicuous to me.
    If you do not mind the money increase for sth special, I would go for your favourite colour and let the guys mix it for you (how about a tequila sunrise change from front to back as if the car is on fire?)
    )
    Here in Cologne you actually see only few of the 2nd generation boxster on the streets, and most have the PZ on their license plate, so they are test cars.
    But Franfurt is different I guess.
    Anyway, I cnnot wait to try her out.
    A friend of mine just bought the 997 Conv, and maybe if Porschejeck has time, we can try the 3.2,3.4 and 3.6 against each other and check for a difference (after the first 2K km of course)

    You bet I'll have time for a joint spin
    Agree with you on the sport-design vs. individual colour choice, but that's all about personal taste of course - Tequila sunrise paint maybe OK in Cologne for the Carnival season, but a bit over the top in Frankfurt
    A3 would be perfect for some Autobahn action and Westerwald (halfway Cologne-Frankurt) should be a nice area for some fun on the twisties
    Your wait time will be over sooner than you can imagine - of course there's still time enough to change your spec (e.g. Tequila sunrise individual paint...)
