    987 arrived today

    Three months later my bassalt black 2.7 arrived today, no pictures or videos can prepare you for the thrill of the real thing. It does not have PCM but has come with a holder for a mobile which was not on my spec, what mobile does this work with? is it pre wired? I got the car from a specialist local dealer rather than our OPC.

    Re: 987 arrived today

    Hi People,
    apolgies, should have put more info on. After months of " are my doing the right thing here" Dr Phil we also have huge taxes , Euro 87,000 on the road for a 2.7 with options listed,which were not my altogrther dream choice (PCM in Ireland??? I like gadgets, alas) (also prefer Bose) my car is here. Still have to wait 10=14 dayas till my money is free from bank investment to pay for car (long story).
    While waiting almost had my Girlfriend convince me to buy a SLK 200K,arrgh 350z (nice Brembos), arrgh Arrgh, one more test drive in 987 put paid to that idea & EX.
    Why do People have such a prob with Porsche? mentioned to a couple of clients my new car & it was " paying ths guy too much !! or I am mad to buy such a car or one (good Client) "hey succesful give him more work, almost considering buying an old golf as second car to visit certain clients who will see what I park in. Have to say this has been an emotional journey not expected.
    My last 12 years have all been SAAB AERO or Viggen, so this is a big departure, anoybody else bring their dog as a passenger? (Weimeaner) thinking of a seat cover passenger side occasionaly with dog saftey belt.

    This site has been great in all the opinions of PORSCHE BOXSTER owenrship, opinions etc; that I have read over the last few agonising months. Dr Phil my last SAAB also has ding Ding seatbelts & came with an in car emergency guide & sick/storage bags in side pocket, go figure, you get used to it, ding ding.

    Stuff it, going to get a bridging loan & get my baby next week.Will post pics when I can.

    Still wondering about Phone?? from PORSCHE Web it seems to be Mobile prepared, but will my V3 bluetooth work? or do i need a new mobile?

    Re: 987 arrived today

    You really want to upset the apple cart? Have an ex wife, plead poverty and then get a Porsche. I've had mine nearly 3 months now and the jungle telegraph is clearly out of order, as the phone has not yet glowed red and melted down through the floor.

    Re: 987 arrived today

    Not my wife, ex girlfriend & best best friend who is moving back to UK where she has a couple of friends with Porsches????, but still hates the Boxster & loves the new SLK, but stil happy for me in the west with no motorway within 300 kms. Financing the Porsche with big baloon so very poor but geting my dream. Stuff the clients, , will invite them for a drive. Anbody give me an answer on the phone?

    Re: 987 arrived today

    wanna post some pics?

    Re: 987 arrived today

    The phone thing beats me - any chance of a photo of what they've done? Sounds very strange!

    Re: 987 arrived today

    Calling in to dealer tomorrow, will take some then & post.

    Re: 987 arrived today

    The phone thing is on side of mid console & looks ike the one with PCM (look closely at manual OPC pics) but without handset. I bought car from my new local SAAB dealer who also specialise in Astons & Porsches, they had pre ordered two Boxsters which I think were cancelled UK orders, as we are now EU speedo KMP & my car has MPH Speedo. Will get the spec codes tomorrow from the car & also take a few pics, just thinking maybe the handset that fits on is in the luggage comp. with all the other bits/manuals etc;?? where I did not look. One thing though, this is factory fitted as would leave holes to remove.

    Re: 987 arrived today

    shut up and post pics!!!hehehehe

    Re: 987 arrived today

    Look frickin good my man, happy for you

    Re: 987 arrived today

    He's got my car! No wait...

    Grats to your Boxster! I don't know about the phone thing as my PCM doesn't have the phone option (at least I think so). Your OPC would know.
