    Re: FINALLY !!!!! My car arrived at the Dealership !!!!!

    Just for info : I was not able to order the chrome tailpipe when I ordered my 987 S end december.
    Nevertheless, I called my dealer early february about the possibility to add stainless steel tailpipe ; I had last year a Boxster S 550 spyder with beautiful exhaust, and I tought it will be the same for the new S tequipment part.
    Even if it's not the case (it's a shame), my dealer recalled me and ensured that it is possible to mount it in addition, and will be mounted at the factory when I will come to take my car.
    This is for responding to your question freak2.
    Now this is what he said to me. I will see the reality in Zuffenhausen in one or two weeks (the earliest will be the best for me ).

    For more info for those who don't have seen this beautiful exhaust :

    Thanks Thierry for your reply, I'm looking forward to your impressions and pictures of The Factory Visit !!
    The chrome endpipe of the Boxster S 550 is really great, Big and Beautiful

    Re: FINALLY !!!!! My car arrived at the Dealership !!!!!

    So - I was visitung Porsche on Friday and spoke to the representative of Porsche Exclusive. The news weren't that good for me. My special order of leather covered A column, steering column and mirror triangles will not be delivered with my car. The parts are not to be expected before September.

    I must admint that I am a little dissapointed. I thought that Porsche Exclusive is a special department making the whishes of the customers come true. But it turns out to be not more than another way of selling serial parts marked as "exclusive". I mean taking off a a-pillar cover, covering it with leather and refit the part is nothing which isn't possible. But I will have to wait until they produce a serie of such parts.

    Re: FINALLY !!!!! My car arrived at the Dealership !!!!!

    All Exclusive parts have to be tested, tested and...tested before they can be released for production.
    It isn't just a simple leather add-on job like some Tuners do.
    Exclusive department can do a lot of stuff, including special development at customer demand. But then, we're talking about money figures which would be higher than the cost of your whole car.
    You have to understand one thing: Exclusive is not THAT Exclusive, especially the stuff you can order at your dealer. And another friendly hint: don't put too much money into your Boxster because it won't pay off regarding resale value. I always recommend to get the Boxster S with PASM and BOSE because PASM/BOSE can't be easily retrofitted. And of course full leather. The other stuff like leather/carbon/wood/painted parts can be retrofitted if people really want to.
    I really don't understand people who buy a Boxster (not S!) and order Exclusive stuff for another 10000 Euro, this doesn't make any sense.
    So just relax and maybe this consolidates you: some Carrera GT customers couldn't get everything they wanted either.

    Re: FINALLY !!!!! My car arrived at the Dealership !!!!!

    Thanks Nightshade for your reply !! I appreciate it VERY MUCH !!
    So, we will have to wait till September (MY 2006) to get the Exclusive Stuff we want, it's a bit sad I think, but we had to wait a long time for our cars, mine is here and yours will follow shortly, we can enjoy our cars and put the extras in later as a retrofit. I for one will certainly put in the other desired Exclusive Options once they are available, THAT'S FOR SURE !!
    For the moment I'm enjoying my car, SHE'S GREAT !!
    Please keep me posted about the arrival of yours

    Re: FINALLY !!!!! My car arrived at the Dealership !!!!!

    My car should be in production when I write these lines. I was told that production date is May 16th. So I am celebrating Birth of my new car today.........
