I'm obsessed with washing, cleaning, & detailing. My wife wants to drive it and I am generating 1,000 reasons why she can't get near it. I drive 15 miles out of my way to get bread so that I can accelerate onto the freeway - the speed, the sound! Is there therapy for this or is this the way it will be? I go out into my garage at night and remove the cover to stare at it - no her, definately a her, a seductress begging me to get points on my liscense. Sorry to show my underbelly but good god this is fun! Who knew?
Sounds exactly like I was last year. Where did you find an 05 with 1700 miles? Or is it 17,000?

Hi River Rat, yes - was owned by someone in Palo Alto who I have to believe had 1. too much money and 2. couldn't drive a stick. Had 1,044 miles on it when I bought it. Was in the local Porsche dealers inventory - they bought it outright and had only had it a few days. One of those being in the right place at the right time things!
