Looking forward to it as well. A proper tune does wonders.

I should introduce (sp!) myself. I have one of 12 986 Boxster S in viola metallic. Was looking for an uncommon color and boy did my wife succeed on that! It also has sport design interior, HIDs, turbo twists, and a couple of other nice extras. Last year I was planning to supercharge my DD - a 2000 BMW 528iT but the desire for a 928 won out. So now I have a Porsche collection - not something I ever envisioned! I wanted a blue one but didn't have enough patience to find one with no sunroof and with a mantrans, so I bought a white driver 3 months ago. I've been busy ever since getting it to a place where I hope it is reliable. In the process I believe I uncovered that it's original color was ... blue! Hellblau to be specific. That wasn't an official 928 color in 1978 but it was a color for a 911 of that year. So I'm guessing it was special ordered. I'll get a Porsche COA or whatever come April. For now it is GP white with black interior. I've replaced some dangerous fuel lines, the brake lines, some lights (the headlights were terrible sealed beams!), axle CV boots (a prior job failed to replace all 8 gaskets!), and trans lube, installed a SS kit, and am about to install interior LEDs, and replace the rear shocks since it bottomed out at some point. Need to replace some less dangerous fuel and PS hoses, and do the TB/WB job before too long. Long term I hope to get pasha interior and repaint it to original, over the next 3 yrs.
if you read all that then I'll add my name is Scott and i live in York Co., PA.

Time to introduce myself ...

Hi, I'm a 10-year DMV resident, originally from the UK, currently to be found in DC (and often at Katie's on a Saturday morning). Current 'fleet' is a silver-on-red B6 S4 cabrio and a Model S. Previous vehicles of interest include a '66 912, 996 Millennium Edition, '74 Charger, '71 Alfa GT Junior, '03 E46 with Dinan bits, and a dozen or so Saabs of varying description. I'm a sucker for a project.

Sold my beloved 996ME a couple of years ago, and recently found myself looking at transaxle cars to fill the Porsche-shaped hole in my life. Anddd ... as the result of a slightly impulsive decision, there should (all going well) be a Guards Red 968 arriving in a couple of weeks. At least I got a PPI, which is more than I did for the 996 More details on the 968 to follow once I figure out exactly what I've bought ...

Cheers

James

Nice - a friend back in the UK has one. Closest I got was a 96V4 I had for a while, it was a fun car. Really taught you the value of momentum

Thanks for the welcome, everyone
