Hi all

Finally purchased my first Porsche, a 99 Boxster, only took me 52 years! She is in good shape but needs some TLC. Silver, black top and terra cotta interior. Also have a silver HT for it. I have always been a "car guy". Hope to make some new friends here and trade Boxster stories.

... to the Board, Mickey.
Congrats on your first Porsche!
The 1999 cars' red interior is the Boxster Red, not the Terracotta.
The Arctic Silver/Boxster Red/Black Top is the quintessential Boxster.
Happy Boxstering,
Pedro

Mickey:

Welcome -

If you like to work on cars, then you'll find the forums valuable resources for how to diagnose problems and how to fix / upgrade items. Three other things really help:
  1. Durametric diagnostic cable for troubleshooting
  2. Bentley's Boxster service manual
  3. Pelican Parts 101 Boxster projects book

Just google / ebay these items to find good deals.
