    New 2006 Porsche Boxster S

    Hi folks,

    I purchased my new 2006 Porsche Boxster S a few weeks ago. I've been monitoring the forum for the last few years getting information and opinions, which I very much appreciate, while planning the purchase of my first Porsche. I ordered the car mid April 2005 and received it mid August 2005, from Robert Grant at AutoGallery. Good guy and good experience.

    Listed below is the car configuration:

    • 987 320 Porsche Boxster S
    • Y1 Exterior Color - Seal Grey Metallic
    • V3 Cabriolet Roof - Stone Grey
    • 249 Tiptronic S Transmission
    • 405 19 Inch Carrera Classic Wheel
    • 475 Porsche Active Suspension Management (PASM)
    • C02 US Standard/Emissions
    • DF Full Leather Interior - Stone Grey
    • 573 Automatic Climate Control
    • P16 Porsche Communication Management (PCM) 2.1
    • 551 Porsche Windstop (Deflector)
    • XMK Roll Bar in Exterior Color - Seal Grey Metallic
    • PPB Prefered Package Plus (includes items listed below)
    • 446 Wheel Caps w/Colored Crest
    • P12 Self-Dim Mirrors & Rain Sensor
    • P74 Bi-Xenon Lighting System w/Washers
    • P15 Power Seats
    • 342 Heated Seats
    • M6G Floor Mats - Stone Grey
    • 680 Bose Surround Sound System
    • 692 Remote Six Disc CD Autochanger

    I've wanted the Boxster since the concept car first came out.

    I just love the way this car handles. It is really a driver's car. I'm still learning the nuances of driving a Porche and how all of the features work. Overall the car is fantastic and I'm definitely afflicted with permagrin.

    Enclosed are a few images.

    Anyways, just wanted to say thanks again for all the advise from members in the past. I'm sure happy to finally be part of the Porsche family.

    Take care.

    Hi Sam987S, congrats on your car! What date did you get your car? I posted pics of my car two days ago and I got it on August 13. Looks like you got just about every option available. Have fun with the car.

    Beautiful! The gray top looks great with Seal too. How about a pic with the top up.

    Re: New 2006 Porsche Boxster S

    with all that grey, the clear side markers would really standout and imo be a nice addition. then you would have the grey ,red,clear thing going.

    Re: New 2006 Porsche Boxster S

    Hi everyone,

    Thanks for all the complements.

    I picked up the car on 17-Aug-2005.

    I have clear side markers on order. Will post some more pics after I install them.

    I have not had the convertible top up very much. So nice with the top down. I do like the look of the grey top with the seal grey exterior. Hope I can keep it looking nice. I'll take some shots with the top up and post later.

    Hi Sam,

    Welcome to rennteam, and congrats for coming out of the lurker closet

    Your car looks great too, and your photography skills are evident.

    I agree about the clear side will look better with them.


    Re: New 2006 Porsche Boxster S

    Great Car Sam, Thanks for the pics !!

    Re: New 2006 Porsche Boxster S

    Congrats! I like the roll bars in seal.. that fits well. Do you happen to have pictures of the car with the hood up by any chance? Cheers.

    Re: New 2006 Porsche Boxster S

    BEAUTIFUL!!!! Welcome!

    Re: New 2006 Porsche Boxster S

    Your Boxster looks amazing. Congrats.
    I hope have many thousands of miles of enjoyment ahead of you.
