Hello dear members
I signed up to this forum to share my enthusiasm of buying my new car.

I got a 2011 Boxster S Black Edition.

It is the standard PDK model with no special bells and whistles about it.

Hopefully it will fill the void of my mid life crisis.

(I have just uploaded the pictures from the dealers website)

Congrats.

The Black edition has many really subtle nice touches, like the embossed roof etc, not just basic limited edition touches. One of these is the Wheels which should have a Silver lip which appears to be missing.

On a rather inquisitive note,

is there anyone in or around London town, I would like him or her to give a view on the feel of the steering, specially does it feel a touch too stiff or am I just being paranoid.

Invested time will be repaid with Beer.

Sorry not a Londoner, but Porsche steering tends to be a bit heavier than your average car, as do the brakes, they need a little more pressure than your daily EUrobox Grin

Boxster S looks lovely though, and they really are great cars thumbsup

And even more subtly - the 3436cc Cayman engine instead of the 3387cc motor found in the normal Boxster S... Thumb

Congrats on the purchase. Thumb

As Chris mentioned, the Black Edition came with Black Rims with a fine Silver Lip as per pic shown.

My guess is the Dealer or previous owner had them refurbished and their local refurbisher wasn't capable of adding the final detail.

Very nice! Welcome along, I think the wheels look better without the Silver rim.

Roof embossing? Eh?

Thanks all !

The missing silver kissing lip would not have been to my liking to be honest.

The roof embossing is rather subtle and one would only notice it if one was looking for it.

What is more noticeable is the black painted badging and the all black trim inside.

Any pointers to good detailing workshops for paint protection etc.

Very nice car!

Whereabouts are you? I’ve got a ‘sensitive butt’ or so the missus says and have driven a few of these.

Oh, for the record on the Lotus rota wheels the silver lip often causes problems and starts corroding. You’re better off without! Thumb

Congrats on your new purchase Ghoshd.

I have just come back from a trip to North Wales and although the weather was not that good and it was pretty damn cold I did a lot of driving with the roof down and heater on but funnily enough didn't feel the need for turning on the heated seats which on the second setting are too hot but great for keeping a take away warm ....... Smile
