One of the few fueling stops we had to make.
For high speed cruising mileage was surprisingly good.

Obligatory owner pics.

My friend's Tim who co-drove the car back home with me.

Thanks.
How old is your son? I was able to fit the Britax Diplomat for my daughter who is almost 3 and about 37" tall. I think the Diplomat tops out at 40". Hopefully by then move her into a booster.

Here's the thread from my install of the Britax Diplomat.

Congrats on your buy and on driving it home. Looks nice. FYI, the wheels are Sport Classic in P-speak, one of my favorites. They are similar to but slightly different than the ones on the Boxster.

My son is 3 years old, thanks.
I got the sport design, confused with the sports classic, oops !!! They don't look easy to clean though. I had the turbo twist on the Boxster and I could wash the inside of the wheel as well as the caliper. Now I have to remove the wheel to clean it?

Very Nice. Keep the seats they look great in the car. What do you think of the RSR exhaust? I was thinking of replacing my stock mufflers with Robin's work. To loud?

Very nice. I like the wheels. Somebody was just asking where all the 993s have gone in Phoenix. I know of a few that came from Arizona including mine and now yours.

The owner had a 997S cab to replace it.

I can't compare the RSR with stock, it is not too loud only at full throttle. I did accelerate up to redline around 130 mph and it was very loud, race car like that would require ear plug, but other than that the sound is great. I would not mind an even deeper rumble at idle, probably Fister III.
