    Ordering 2007 Boxster S Atlas Grey with Black

    I'm ordering a 2007 Boxster S with the following:

    Atlas Grey Metallic with Black Top
    Black Full Leather interior
    PASM
    19" Carrera S Wheel
    Bi-Xenon Headlamp Package
    Bose System with Windstop
    Carbon Package
    Sport Shifter
    Heated Seats
    Sport Seats
    Sport Steering Wheel (considering Thicker Sport Steering Wheel-any inputs?)
    Wheel Caps with Colored Porsche Crest
    Black Floor Mats
    Guard Red Seatbelts (considering this...)

    What do you guys think?

    Re: Ordering 2007 Boxster S Atlas Grey with Black

    Reads like a good choice to me. The basic sports steering wheel is just fine, the smooth leather or thicker rim versions cost an awful lot more money for what they offer, IMO. Make sure both you and whoever else will be sharing your Boxster find the sports seats confortable, I love them but SWMBO finds them uncomfortable and the seat belts ride too high for her (she is only 5 ft. tall). If you have a similarly height challenged partner and he / she is going to drive, parkassist is worthwhile, as rear visibility when parking is poor if you are short with the "hump" over the engine / soft top cover. One of the rear sections of the rear console options can lift the cabin, painted in exterior colour or carbon, with your colour combinations. Red seat belts? Might be a bit OTT perhaps?

    Whoa ! - almost my spec, bar the carbon pack and red belts. And i added xenons afterward (took the aftermarket hid kit from my old 986)


    The sports wheel is very good as is, its abit thinner than a BMW equivalent but much better to hold than the normal 'triangulr bossed' wheel.


    Sports seats are great, and you have the added bonus of the backs being clad in silver/grey plastic rather than a soft leatherette.





    Re: Ordering 2007 Boxster S Atlas Grey with Black

    Nice choice of color! Sport steering wheel is the way to go, don't really think the thicker one is necessary as it has been stated on this forum or another that it isn't so much thicker for the $$$.



    Re: Ordering 2007 Boxster S Atlas Grey with Black

    Nice spec, very close to mine. Stick with the sports steering wheel, it's fantastic. Oh, and get ready for people to be coming up to you all the time. My AG gets lots of attention.

    Re: Ordering 2007 Boxster S Atlas Grey with Black

    An option I would always tick is "porsche crest in headrest" it looks so awesome IMO. Furthermore I love your speclist!

    percymon, is that the Chrome exhaust tip or did you just polish the standard one up?

    Re: Ordering 2007 Boxster S Atlas Grey with Black

    Harry,

    Do you have any pictures of your interior? I was interested in seeing the carbon package with black interior.

    Re: Ordering 2007 Boxster S Atlas Grey with Black

    I never thought about the Porsche crest on the headrests. They do look great!

    Sorry Kim, I don't have the carbon package. I too thought about it but in the end didn't order it. Really wish now i did get the small carbon package.

    Re: Ordering 2007 Boxster S Atlas Grey with Black

    Its just polished up with a bit of wire wool and Rejex, 2 minutes every other week keeps it almost chrome like.


    Re: Ordering 2007 Boxster S Atlas Grey with Black

    I am 6'1" with broad shoulders and I found the sport seats to be uncomfortable. Make sure you try them out. Otherwise, a great option list. I wish I had gotten the sport wheel. Good luck with the car.

    Re: Ordering 2007 Boxster S Atlas Grey with Black

    Almost exact to my 07 order. Sans the belts, sport seats, crests and full leather. I went with power seats after having the sport seats in my 996 TT. I want more comfort. Sorry for not being a total purist. I chose PASM too but see some ugly posts about it. May consider crests again. I am trying to get the New Turbo wheels put on my Nov delivery.

    Re: Ordering 2007 Boxster S Atlas Grey with Black

    Kim, I think you can save some $$$ on the carbon and red seat belts. However, ever considered getting the 19" turbo wheels instead? I think they look awesome with the new finished 2 tone look.

    Re: Ordering 2007 Boxster S Atlas Grey with Black

    May I vouch for the Carrera Classics?



    And before you ask, that is my car, but that is not me standing there
